Took to another friends house powered up no problem, took it home same trouble again. At my house where the trouble is we even tried to boot it with the MB out


Answers :

Since you've efficiently tested the pc at other locations and have verified that it operates fine elsewhere, it's a matter of selecting your personal choice of problem from the following list:

- there's a ground problem at your outlet, the breaker is bad or the plug isn't connecting correctly in the outlet

OR

- the pc simply doesn't like you anymore and is expressing it's contempt through insubordination and 'in your face' actions as it makes you look like a liar to your friends. :)
