You know, this is so not what I need right now.
So I'm sitting here having a friendly game of Unreal Tourn. 2004, when, without any warning whatsoever (no sound / image lockups), my PC dies. I mean completely - the whole thing powers off. It has never done this before - the worst it's done is the the graphics card has "failed to proceed" (monitor = standby until I hard restart - you may be able to dig up a thread on this regarding Freedom Fighters).
When I hit the power button, nothing happens. So I switch the PSU off at the back, go out into the cool Welsh night air and scream like a maniac (quietly, we have old neighbors. Mostly I just clenched and kicked things), come back and switch the PSU on. I am greeted by a playful flash from all my fans, as usual.
So it seems to be working fine now. No data lost or anything.
Does this sound like a PSU instability of some sort? I only meet the requirement in wattage for my graphics card (350W iirc) and I'm certain that figure isn't taking into account my 4 fans, HDD, DVD drive, sound card and fancy light, is it?
Well at least I know where the first ~£60 of my student load is going. They'd better bloody give me my first cheque tomorrow.
EDIT: I've been meaning to get a backlit keyboard for ages too - the novelty of guessing where keys are in the dark is starting to wear off.
