    Inadequacy of your power supply maybe the reason - Can you list out your configuration? and your power rating?

    Definatly SMPS i think in this case. Try changing the SMPS with someone from your friend and see if its working good. If yes please this time try getting atleast 400 Watts SMPS with good quality Brand as SMPS is an equal important part of PC as anyother with todays Proccys and mobo's ever demanding and power hungry.

    to test the PSU wroking or not
    u must short the PSU with a copper wire on 13 and 14 pins considering u have 24pin waala (not sure about correct pin nos)
    and then start the PSU

    the below is of 20 pin waala (14 15 pins shorted)
    [​IMG]

    after shorting give it some time to discharge static current
    the thng is PSU's they can store a migty charge which really fu*king hurts and can kill. so leave the PSU unplugged overnight to let it discharge.

    Irrespective of whether your SMPS is working or not, the 300W Mercury is not meant for your rig. It was alright with the generation of systems prevalent in the beginning of the new millenium.

    So immediately get a good 400W PSU
