I recently bought this PC from the (hindsight being an exact science) very sh*t and very unhelpful Mesh Computers: MESH XGS Ice 7 LE with Intel Core i7 860 LGA1156, 1GB: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo
Booted it up with it plugged into a 6 head extension lead that also had speakers, monitors and USB hub plugged in. Worked first time, installed some software that needed it to restart so off it went... never to boot up from that extension again.
After mucho pressing of the start button I unplugged it and the blue lighting in the case kicked in for a second. Not sure quite why, but I then plugged it directly into the two head socket on the wall (with nothing else plugged into the second plug head) and it booted up fine.
I plugged the extension lead with all the monitors on etc into the second slot on the same socket on the wall as the PC and the PC lost power and cut out.
Unplugged the extension lead and the PC started up again. I have now found that the only way to get everything to work at once is to run an extension lead from somewhere else in the office, into the editing suite we have put together...
Anyone offer any help or words of advice/wisdom.
