I have a Desktop tower, 2 Monitors, a printer, a router and a set of speakers hooked up to a power strip. The powerstrip is connected to a wall outlet (3 pin).
Everyday I switch off the powerstrip in the morning, and when I switch it back on in the evening after 8 hours, the following turn on just fine - 1. the speakers 2. the monitors 3. the router
But then when I press the power button on the Desktop Tower, nothing happens. Also, when I turn the powerstrip on, the speakers that are hooked up to this desktop, constantly play a heartbeat sound. Goes like 'bip .. bip ... bip'. This sound stops if I disconnect the speakers from the desktop, but I don't disconnect them (read on to know why)
After about 30-40 minutes, the heartbeat sound stops. Then if I press the power button on the tower, desktop starts up just fine.
I have tried disconnecting and reconnecting all the cords, holding down the power button, switching off/on the PSU, etc. Nothing works. I have to wait for 30-40 mins.
Question - is this a case of static electricity build-up or is the PSU messed up ? has anyone encountered an issue like this before ? any recommendations on how this can be fixed ?
