Problems booting

Today while I was working on my Arch 0.7 I encountered my first cold self-reboot of it. Whwn the OS was reloading hotpug daemon took quite a while to load, and the boot procedure got stuck in loading the CUPS daemon. Pressing alt+ctrl+del didn't work (hotplug couldn't be unloaded). I had to manually power off for a couple of minutes, unplug the USB printer and start the system normally (this time it booted OK).
Can this symptom be anything else than an inadequate PSU?
It's not a workhorse, but not anhaemic either (nominal 350W with an acclaimed 25A on +5V and 14A on +12V). System is PIV 2.8HT/1GB RAM with Nvidia FX5200 AGP, 2 CD-ROM, 1 SATA HD and little more than that.

Re: Problems booting

If your system rebooted spontaneously, it could be the PSU, or inadequate cooling.

Install lm_sensors and keep an eye on the voltages.

Re: Problems booting

I've installed lm_sensors (thanks for the tip- I did not even know this package existed), but after changing my PSU with a SilentMaxx 420 one (gorgeous- and very expensive...) it works like a champ.
Thanks for your input.
