PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Windows Me
Problem Application Name & Version: Unsure
Problem Hardware Make & Model: Pentium IV, 500mh
Error Messages: No error message shows



Computer works well with all aspects but has one glaring glitch:  When initially turning it on, there's anywhere from a 10-20 minute delay in anything happening.  Literally!  Nothing hangs and the monitor acts like the computer is turned off.  If you leave it alone, it resolves itself within several minutes. The bios comes on and Windows Me is loaded ... and from there everything is perfectly operational.  I've checked all the connections both externally and internally for something loose or dusty but nothing helps.  Any suggestions?  I'd really appreciate any info you might have to offer.
Thanks!

Hi CC,
Sounds like maybe the power supply is on it's way out.
Take care.

I'm going to buy a new power source and replace it later today.  I'll let you know if it does the trick.  Thanks so much for the advise!

THANKS SO MUCH!  I INSTALLED A NEW POWER SOURCE AND THE COMPUTER IS WORKING PERFECTLY (Now, that's an oxymoron if I ever heard one!).

AGAIN, MY DEEPEST APPRECIATION FOR YOUR EFFORTS!
