Heres a good one.  My PC is just over a year old and has been running like a dream since new. Recently I moved house, and strange things have started to happen when trying to boot up.  

Normally, I would press the on button, the fans kick in at high speed before settling down to their familiar humming and PC goes to desktop without an issues.  

However, now i turn on the PC and at the first attempt the fans stay at high speed and nothing happens until i switch off at the mains.  On the second attempt, fans go through the normal routine and settle down, however, the PC turns itself off before reaching the log in stage.  This process repeats 4 to 5 times and normally on reboot number 6 i get to the desktop and have no further issues.

Does it sound like i have a piece of hardware which is about to croak or is there a simpler solution.  PS...my cache and hard drives are maintained regularily.  Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated.

I would suggest trying another wall-socket first. Or have an electrician come and check your electrical circuitry in the house. Since you didn't change anything in the PC, and I expect you to have moved it in a secure way to the new house, I would look beyond the PC.

It's as if it doesn't get enough electric current to boot with. I had something like that happening once when I plugged my PC in at the same socket (with a splitter) that had my new phone loader plugged in. The phone was still charging its battery, it was taking most of the electrical current.

Thanks Jee.  I will try your suggestion later on today.  I must admit that I thought it might be an issue with the power supply, as opposed to the PC itself.  I will let you know how I get on.  Thanks again.
