very new to knoppix but not to PCs, loaded and ran knoppix 4.02 (running for a couple of weeks) works fine,
shut down knoppix, shutdown display seemed to go through procedure ok but stopped at line which I think said Knoppix shutting down, left for several hours then powered of PC, PC will not now switch back on, (IBM Netvista), the best you get is a flicker from the CD light when on button pressed, removed power cord for 1/2 hour, no fix removed Bios Battery and power cord, pressed power button for 20 seconds still will not power up anyone any thoughts cause at the moment I have an IBM coffee table

down: motherboard, processor, ram or so...

exylum hi,

good thought , I initialy discounted this on grounds of too much coincidence, big mistake, new PSU fixed problem,

that'll teach me
