One of my friends who I built a computer for is having a problem. He turned on the PC and a few minutes later everything turned off includding the power surge and printer. It happened twice. I think it must be some kind of power realated problem and probably isn't anything wrong with the computer. If this helps at all its a Duron 750, 300 watt generic psu, 1 maxtor hdd, 1 creative cd drive. I'm pretty sure the psu is sufficient for whats being powered. Any insight would be appreciated. I think its a power related issue that doesn't have anything to do with the pc but I want to be sure.
