@barlop "Perfectly working" means I didn't get any unexpected shut downs from power, or BSODs which usually appear with voltage problems. I've got a multimeter but, what am I looking for and where? Does this guide seem comprehensive? pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/ht/…

Two things. A) Any ideas on how to quickly test if it is the PSU? I mean, I can borrow a PSU from a friend but can't keep it around for days just to see if the problem comes up again. B) It seems, though could be coincidence, that plugging the PSU to a different socket helps it start. Would that make any sense? Thanks!
