    to cut a long story short it all started with my hard drive making a clunk
    noise and seeming to halt momentarily when running, though sometimes it
    could run for a week and be fine Until i power off and power on.
    Since then i've got a new motherboard, new cpu, new hard drive!, and it ran
    fine for a week, i go to put a new geforce4 in and it all starts happening
    again!
    all i can think of is my power supply, Also when i've powered off and power
    on it makes a loud humming noise like something is stuck in a fan (of course
    i check, and nothing) i power off and on a few times and it'll boot fine
    (unless of course the HD is halting when in use)
    any help greatly appreciated, I've spent so much >:
    **also my old hard drive has been put into a 400watt case and seems up to
    now to be running perfectly** :(
    it's a 300watt atx
    Pc specs
    AthlonXP 2600+ (was 1600+)
    512DDR
    80 gig 7200 maxtor (was Maxtor 40gig)
    Geforce 4 440 8x (was Geforce2 or on-board)
    Soundblaster
    ASrock board(was ECS)
    **please note i had the same HD clunk/halt problem with previous set up**

    I'd say you got your finger on the problem. Sound like the PS is being
    naughty.

    suck!
