    Hi,
    I wonder if anyone can help me,When i switch the pc on nothing happens except the drive lights coming on sometimes it takes about a minute before it starts,This morning it took about 15 minutes,Afriend has suggested either my motherboard,power supply,or hard drive are on the way out,Is there any way to find out exactly what it is?
    Many Thanx

    disconnect all drives & cards except video & see how long it takes to post than start attaching a device at a time & repower system. device that takes long time to post might be culprit, but continue adding devices minus the slow one to confirm it is causing problem or not
