When I turn my XP rig on it will boot for a few seconds then shut off. I'll wait a few then turn it on again and it'll boot up fine. This happens 90% of the time, other times it'll boot on 1st attempt. This has been going on for over six months, I just put up with it. It runs fine, no freezes or anything. All parts were picked brand new or NOS at least, the PS is a new 500W Thermaltake so don't think the issue is there. Anyone seen this behavior before? See my XP sig for part descriptions.
