  2. Do you hear the powersupply switching when it shuts and reboots? Do you ever put the comp into hibernation/sleep mode? Because I had this problem with my current comp, although the amount of restarts are anywhere from 1 to 5+ CPU: e6600 OC Antec 650 Earthwatts 4870 GB p45 2hdd 4 fans etc.. etc.. etc.. Stuck in a zalman MFC2 on idle, my system would cruise at ~105 watts and load at ~200-250 watts. Found out my problem was due to not shutting down but my comp going into Hibernation/sleep. All I needed to do was unplug the power cable. Hit the power to drain the capacitors and reboot fine. Although that may not your problem and could potentially be the P/S. But after running up your comp, that wattage should be fine. so go figure? As the others already suggested, try unplugging items 1 by 1 (Fans, HDD, DVD) and see if you get a first time boot up and it may just be a PS problem. Regards, Rob

    Wage Question

    I have to agree with this. I worked in recruitment, And employers will always beat you down. They will have the upper hand on someone who just wants the job. So go in higher and you may come out with a better figure. And you can always use market research to your advantage. E.G, If you know more about the PD for this job, you can revert to Seek.com / Mycareer.com salary averages for similar jobs. Have a read of this http://www.seek.com.au/career-resources/ge...salary-neg.ascx

  6. So I have finally decided on a day to get married to my loving partner. Date set - Check Venue - Check Food - Check Music - ........ Since I hear alot of discussions here about music and guitars, I would guess there are a few musicians lurking these swamps I am now seeking the assistance from the atomic community (Sydney) for a person who can play acoustic classical/spanish guitar for ~ 1-2 hours. And yes, I will pay for your services. So I am putting the shout out to all musicians who would like to put their hands up. PM or post what you can do, and lets discuss further. Cheers Rob

    big deposit means less in repayments

    I would also consider mortgage insurance through a third party, In the case of redundancy, your insurance will pay for your repayments. Thats only if the bank wont already cover due to the government pushing to assist in hard times.

  14. Having an issue trying to setup a mates HTPC. its connected to his 37" LG lcd tv via dsub 15. Unfortunately no DVI on this motherboard (which I tested on my spare card and works fine.. but its mine) anyway, Boot screen shows up. then flashes to "no Signal" for 5 seconds. Next the xp Loading screen shows, then another "no signal" once xp loads. This time it stays like that. Any Ideas? would it possibly be a refresh rate? As i have not loaded any drivers on yet (Intel G31 945g fyi) i'm yet to check once I get a spare monitor there. Cheers Rob
  15. cheers, I'll try that first before I check with an LCD

    Oh wow.. wouldn't this have been nice?

    Another thing is that independants normaly pay a higher wholesale price for their fuel, which in turn allow the giants to lower their pricing below the independant's cost. These giants will still make somewhat of a profit, leaving these little guys in the dust as they are unable to match their pricings. And as Caelum said, Something should be done about it. Rob
