Re: Ubuntu TV?

They're competing with Google TV though (apart from a lot of smaller players) - it's not gonna be as hard as breaking into the mobile OS market (=no chance), but it's gonna be a long uphill climb. I like that Canonical are so ambitious and visionary but I think they missed the boat on most of the m...

I've done a video to show what the flickers look like to make it easier to explain:

Re: New Build PC Flashing Light But Doesen't Turn On?

The only PSU's I trust these days are Antec, Corsair etc... the wattage ratings on the cheap ones are more of a marketing statement. Safe to assume that a cheap 500W unit is good for 350 to 400 W with a limited life span. Doesn't sound like you are pulling a big load though. My guess is that you ha...

Re: New Build PC Flashing Light But Doesen't Turn On?

Best guess is that the computer power supply is having problems delivering enough amps at start up. Items like hard drives use a lot more amps to spin up than at run. Did you reuse the existing case and PS for this build ? If so, the PS may be on the way out or not designed to deliver the number of...

New Build PC Flashing Light But Doesen't Turn On?

For some reason my new build PC sometimes doesn't turn on properly... the lights on the case will come and flash and the CPU fan will try and turn but only partly :? and after a few minutes it will then turn on :|
