Hey Guys,

A friend of mine has a pc that shuts off whenever he plays music cd's and the only way he can turn it back on is by switching the power from the back off then on. I've never seen a pc did that before however am thinking its the power supply or motherboard problem. But if he's not playing cd's everything works fine. This is a weird one..... By the way he has it over 5 years

If your friend or you can borrow a better power supply to test in there then I would try that first and see what happens.
