Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

We have an old computer in our house, a hand-me-down from my days in university. It's an old AMD K7 2600, with 1 GB of RAM and an ATI Radeon, and my brother's using it now. Except he's having an issue where it just powers off while it's booting. The hard drive'll beep, and then click, the whole thing just powers off. It does so in such a way that you have to tap the power button twice to get it to power back up, and it'll occasionally happen while loading Windows or shortly after, but after Windows has been loaded for a couple minutes, then the rig's good to go for the rest of the day.
Has anybody experienced this before and can tell me what it is? We don't want to buy a new computer, since it'd totally overshoot his needs and would cost a significant amount of money, but I think we'd be okay with fixing it if the cost is low. I suspect it's the power supply, but I don't really have much hardware experience. Halp?
