Before discarding the old one, cut off all the power cords. New power
supplies come with far too few hard-drive and CD leads for my needs and
I need to solder additional ones. Those have to come from somewhere.

- Seems like we have a consensus here, so off to the computer shop to
by a power supply I go.

appreciate all hints and warnings. I realize in hindsight that the
power supply is the likely culprit when the juice doesn't get all the
way, but I wasn't able to figure that our for myself, so you can see
I'm not too experienced with fixing things.
Thanks to all!

your suggestion about a bad power supply was right.
I of course procrastinated. At last the time lapse was at least half
an hour. Then I stopped to switch off the main power at night and the
computer powered up quickly every mornings, which let me
procrastinate some more. Yesterday I switched off the main power by
mistake and after that the computer didn't want to power up at all,
no matter how long I waited. So today I did what you told me and
bought a new power supply and everything is dandy.
Happy happy! :-)
