    Sounds like either... 1. The power supply is taking a dump. (not cheap) 2. One of the caps that relays power off the supply is in the early stages of blowing. (not cheap either...but cheaper than a power supply) It is fixable provided you don't wait till the PS completely dies...or if it is a cap...till the cap finally does pop and takes everything "else it is associated with" out.
