After installing a new power supply, I have a strange bug when I start Slimserver after a re-boot. I get the following error message "Starting Slimserver failed. Please see the event viewer or contact support".

There are no entries in the event viewer related to this.

The only way to start Slimserver 6.5.1 is to re-install it and then it works - even when the PC goes in and out of Hibernation... but if I reboot, back to the above behavior.

Before the Power supply install, no problems with Slimserver. All other apps work as before - this is limited to Slimserver.

I am using Windows XP Pro (SP2 with all updates).

The PC is a Pentium 4 3.0 gHz with 1 gig of memory and tons of free disk space.

Any suggestions/ideas... this is really stange that upgrading from a narginal 300 Watt to a 485 Watt Power Supply could be involved in this...but who knows?

Anything using port 9000? "netstat -a" at a command prompt.
