Powering Up LPT GTI

Hi. Just wondering - do I need to give the platter a "helping hand" when I power up? Have not done so up to now, but have just read something worrying (albeit on an ebay advert) saying that if I don't then the GTI power supply will burn out quickly. When I power up now, I get a slight noise, but it gets up to speed almost instantly.. thanks.

I remember the ad from way back-total bull just trying to cover up for a PSU that is past its best.
The best thing you can do to preserve your PSU is isolate it from power when switched off as it is otherwise permanently powered.
