well I took the unit back to tigerdirect and i had to exchange it. I ended up getting the 400 watt ultra. Its basically all they had. I need to get the pc up a running asap. Also I was thinking about something that may of cause it to happen I have a 2 plug electrical outlet under my pc. I have 1 main power surge protector plugged into the wall and I have 7 componets pluged into it. I will invest and get another power strip.
