More info will be needed before anyone can help you . Please list your hardware motherboard cpu meme video and such , all this info would be very helpful. Now a 300 watter ....ugh.....i would think you would need 350 at a bare bottom for a hammer...how about it folks does it even have enough juice in that small a powercan to kick his beast off. Really could use the rest of your specs.Best of luck

how many optical drives and hard drives are you runnig in the machine, helps to understand how much power you are trying to get from a power supply. best of luck

I'm thinking you might need a better QUALITY PSU. Get a Thermal Take or Antec.

Are those beeps 1 long and 2 short? That would point to a video problem.

SS Joe, what part of New Hampshire are you from.

I grew up in North Salem, New Hampshire. 03079

Also, flyer, I'm currently having the same problem, but it seems you solved yours. I'm still working on mine. I have a thread posted about it.
