Alright, I had an issue about a week ago, where the fans would turn on, the DVDrom would light up, I could hear the HardDrive, but no POSt. I couldn't find out what was wrong, I found the clear cmos jumper, changed it to clear cmos, waited, then changed it back, it booted up fine and has worked without issue for a week. Last night the problems started again, and now I am wondering if it's power related. The same exact thing is happening, but after the DVD lights flash briefly, I get nothing from the DVD I can't even open it. I have a 300W PSU, 950 Athlon, 128M RAM, Sound Blaster 512, Maxtor 20G hdd. Please help getting frustrated.

Given that you got it working by clearing the CMOS, I would first try replacing the CMOS battery to see if that fixes the problem. If it doesn't we can proceed with other problem solving...
