Monitor; power supply or graphics problem?

Q: Monitor; power supply or graphics problem?

I recently moved to the USA from NZ. I brought with me my hard drive K&T Pro2(MS-6330) ATX VA Motherboard.

I decided not to bring my monitor across with me (too costly).

I bought a monitor here in the USA which works on US PCs (tested). For some reason it will not work off my hard drive.

Could it be the power supply? Graphics card?

I have checked the cables (US); monitor and power supply.

Appreciate any assistance.

Which video connector are you using? D-sub or DVI? Could you be using the wrong DVI cable? Like DVI-D instead of DVI-I.

Help!! I Installed a new graphics card and power supply to my pc and now monitor, mouse and keyboard is not working.

I have tried putting the old ones back in and i am getting the same issue. no monitor means i cant even enter bios. It powers up as normal with all the fans spinning so I am not sure what the issue is. I am thinking maybe I have damaged my motherboard!

My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-H61M-S2PV
graphics card = GTX650
power supply = 650W

any solutions anyone?

It was stated that there are no servicable things inside but me and my dumb head decided to open it anyways .There seemed to be nothing wrong with it and i put my computer back together ( had to take apart all things processor and etc) but now form time to time my monitor says attention out of range with some extremly big numbers like h:180 KHz and v:60hz.Did i **** up something in power supply ?I mean , can that be the reason of my monitor malfunction , and i am gonna get a new power supply anyways cos its sound is driving me insane. Anyways if the powers supply is not the problem what might be . Thanks in advance

My power supply died a few days ago and I have replaced it. My PC will now boot but will not send a signal (turn on) the monitor. Everything on the PC seems to work but it just will not turn on signal to the monitor. I have tried two different monitors with the same result.

Help!?!?!

Thanks,

Tod

Hi, I have a windows 7 PC (eMachines ET1831), it has an integrated graphics card:
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce 7050 / NVIDIA nForce 620i
Chip type: GeForce 7050 / nForce 620i
I am an amateur when it comes to computer hardware, but I am tired of playing games with very low graphics settings. I am hoping to be able to have smoother game-play with medium settings. So I'm looking for a budget upgrade (less than £65 ($100)), but my PC only has a 250W power supply.

Question: Will the Sapphire ATI Radeon HD5450 work with only a 250W power supply?

Is is possible to simply upgrade a power supply like I would a graphics card?

Any help will be appreciated.

Right I have a 550ti but only a 300w power supply. My performance is shocking on it.
Is this cause my power supply?
It's recommended to have a 400w +

You need to upgrade your Power Supply ASAP. You are putting a strain on that low-end one.

A few days ago my PC shut-down as did one of the fuses for the house This was accompanied by a nasty burning ozone smell I reset the fuse plugged in the pc and the tower wouldn t light up The monitor and speakers on the same cord board powered up but not the tower I cleaned out all the dust I could find and tried again but no luck I couldn t find any burn marks but I figured it must be the PSU So I ordered a Sonata complete with an earthpower watt PSU My new stuff arrived today and I began pulling out my mobo to put it into the new tower when I graphics card? Power or supply found a loose component rolling around in the old tower To my ignorant eyes it looks like a tiny capacitor and it has written on the top P EZA There are three more of these on my Asus Power supply or graphics card? GT so I figure that must be where it came from but this leaves me with two questions Would this missing component cause the whole PC to not start up Have I found the cause of the problem and can I assume the old PSU is still Can this component be soldered back on or I do I need a Power supply or graphics card? new graphics card nbsp

A:Power supply or graphics card?

You have nothing to lose trying to solder the capacitor back, if you can find the spot it was in previously, do you? I would assume the fix is not going to work, but it's worth a shot, I would try doing it.
The old PSU is most probably a goner. The loose capacitor would cause no video output, but wouldn't prevent the system from booting.

Interesting. I tried to find some reviews on it (real reviews by professionals), and couldn't. I'd like to see how stable they are first before I popped one in my system. Have you been able to find any reviews?

Also, are you SURE your current PSU is not enough? It may be enough you know. I see you only have 18amps on the 12v volt, that is very much on the low side, but it would depend on what else you have in your box.

I'm tempted to recommend you get a high quality 450w FSP power supply for $40 over getting the thermaltake.....

So yeah, its my fault for not doing the proper research. I recently bought the Geforce GTX 660ti without knowing the proper required specs for the power supply wattage. The minimum amount is 450W for the card, and the computer I have is a HPE 400f, and the wattage is only 300. I don't want to install it now and have it burn out my computer. What should I do? Is it easy to buy an upgrade for an HPE power supply? Or should I just get a different graphics card? I don't think I can return it because I bought it from Tigerdirect and they only accept returns for certain products and video cards aren't included. Also I don't think it came with the right amount of PCI pins. One has six while the other only has five? Anyways, what should I do?

Hi ToonArmy,

Here is the official system requirements for the HD 4850 graphics card. Note the power requirement. You should be OK with your existing PSU, however you will be running fairly near its maximum rating with very little room, if any, for further system expansion. I suggest that you upgrade your PSU to at least 650 Watts.

Hello

I have just purchased a new graphics card (XFX Geforce 7900GT) for my rig and as i was opening up the packaging last night I noticed it said 'connect the power dongle'.

This is my first PCI-E card and before I install it I wanted to know if I could use one of the standard power connectors (coming from the power supply within the rig, like those that I plug into a HDD or DVD drive) and plug that into the graphics card, or whether the card had to plug in somewhere else on the motherboard (though I don't know where).

Also - is this power connector optional or integral to the graphics card's performance.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
 

A:graphics card power supply

You DEFINITELY need to use the power connector. It is not optional. That is a high-end card that needs alot of juice to run. Just plug in a spare Molex connector from your power supply (same type that goes into a CD drive or hard drive). If you don't have a spare connector, use the splitter (aka: dongle) that came with your card and run it from one of your other connectors.

BTW - enjoy that card!

Hi,My nephew wants to upgrade the graphics card in his 5501150qe, and will probably have to upgrade the power supply, too.   It's a small case and the first card he bought was too large (he hasn't done this before).  He now is getting a Msi GeForce gt 740 direct x 12 4gb. Can anyone suggest a compatible power supply, and will there be cooling problems? Thanks -

The M700 comes with a 250W PSU.  No other options are offered.
But there is an option to configure the M700 with a GeForce GT720 1GB card.
Nvidia's product site says the GT720 requires a minimum 300W PSU.
Why does Lenovo is configure a machine that doesn't meet the requirements given by the graphics card manufacturer?
 
But more importantly - if I follow threads correctly, Lenovo PSUs are a bit of their own animal.
 
Are there PSU part numbers for larger PSUs from other models that could be used to upgrade the 250W supply in the M700?.   (eg. the 650W supply available for the P500/510?)
 
Tnx for any ideas/thoughts.

A:M700: upgrading graphics and power supply

 
From an update tread I'm working on.   Let me know if you have any Qs or comments.
 
Power supply or PSU: The Mini-Tower uses a standard ATX power supply, and the SFF a standard TFX power supply. A power connector adapter (ATX to Lenovo) is required for systems built 2012 and later. For the SFF, the maximum aftermarket TFX is 400w, with 350w being more common -- not a huge increase over stock. For the Mini-tower, I have had an 650w aftermarket Corsair in mine (I recommend one that is semi-modular and shorter, as space is limited inside the case.) A good example for the mini-tower is the Corsair CX-M series.

A:Power Supply and Graphics Card Decision

The 9600GT usually scores 3 or 4 fps lower even though it's $50 less than the 8800GT. It also produces less heat and uses less power. 8800GT is just a little bit more powerful for $200 while the the 9600GT is 99% as good for $150. I would go with the 9600 as it really, really gives you bang for your buck. And it isn't as hot as other graphics cards. And I believe that how it works is that a lot of amps on a single 12v rail is better than few amps on a couple of 12v rails. So I would get the PC power and cooling PSU.

My computer has one AGP slot open, so I ordered the VisionTek Radeon 2400 Pro 512MB DDR2 AGP Graphics Card from Circuit City.

A:Changing my graphics card and power supply

Hey, so I took a quick look at your list. Your Motherboard does support one PCIe card, so you should be able to install the 6950 just fine.
my chief concern however, is that the 6950 is a very long card, and I'm worried it may not fit in your small dell case. So I'd take some measurements to see if it fits, before buying anything.
the installation of the PSU and GPU should be fine, I myself have done the exact same thing in my brother's dell (installed new PSU and GPU), and it has been working fine ever since.
Also If you have a few extra dollars, Id look into getting at least a 600W power supply, just to be safe, because the 6950 OC edition will suck quite a bit of power, and I'd rather have a bit more breathing room whereas 520W is cutting it a bit close. thats' up to you though, it should still run fine with your chosen PSU.

A:2 Graphics card & 4 HDD's > 500 watt power supply?

Two different cards will have no affect on gaming performance. The reason for multiple cards is to drive multiple monitors (ie: if a single card doesn't have enough ports). Most games default to the primary display and will not scale across multiple cards unless you are running SLI or Crossfire.

Power supply quality is more important than the size rating. On top of that, you need a power supply with multiple 12 volts rails and adequate amp rating on each rail to support the devices that you are connecting. With all of that said, a quality 500w unit may be adequate, anything less is likely under powered.

Try manually clearing the CMOS and/or restoring to factory defaults. Then making any adjustments needed for operation. Loss of time is typically a sign of a battery issue, aside from that it would be a motherboard or corrupt BIOS problem.

A:Graphics card or power supply bricked need help

A 300 watt PSU may be pushing it for a 7600GS, how many amps on the +12 volt rail and what brand? 300 watt for a modern system is generally not enough with any type of add-on graphics card.

But chances are the video card is damaged, maybe from the PSU or maybe from the overclocking.

I'd say get a new power supply, you want and need it even if the video card is toast, you'll want it to properly power any new replacement video card.

Salutations!

I'm looking to upgrade somethings on my clunker (A bad idea, I know) But I have no other options. I currently run a DC 5800 MT from HP/Compaq and am looking to upgrade with a Power Supply and a(better) Graphics Card.

http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/ca/e...2132884-81559927-81559993-81805229.html?dnr=2 Is a link to the specs of my computer.

I am looking for something in the 500W-750W range to open up my options for Graphics Cards, but have never bought a new PSU for a computer before.

I am looking for advice on what to buy, brand, and compatibility (Size being the main factor there, it has to fit in my case obviously) and know little about the process of choosing a PSU.

Any advice would be appreciated!
 

A:Upgrading Power Supply and Graphics Card.

Hello, the initial determination you must make is whether a standard replacement PSU will fit in your case. Generally you can expect these dimensions for a replacement PSU: 5.91" x 5.51" x 3.35" (WxDxH).
The description of your computer has the word 'Micro' in it, so if the case is just large enough for a micro-atx motherboard, you should stay away from graphic cards that are too long, so pick one that is about 7".
The wattage you need will depend largely from the graphic adapter you choose, one thing to keep in mind is that yours seems to be a typical business case and likely has no option for additional cooling, so consider that when you choose your graphic adapter.

Go here, then click the "Download Program" button and allow the HardwareProfiler.exe file to run.

Once the scan and analysis is finished, a new window will appear.

Click the "Power Analysis" button. It'll show you the minimum power supply rating, based on your current hardware.

When you consider the additional load of a more powerful graphics card and hard-core gaming, you'll see that the current 250 watt power supply won't do it.

Hi, new to forums, seems like you guys are nice so...
I purchaced components from this guide.
http://www.techspot.com/guides/187-buying-guide-200908/page3.html
Everything was great as i started assembling my pc, but as i looked to connect my ATI Radeon HD 4770 to my OCZ OCZ500MXSP power supply reccomended in the build, I saw the free chord I had for my power supply had 8 pins, but my card was a 6 pin slot. I checked the case my card came with, it had a lot of adapters to attach to the 6 pin slot on the graphics card, but none of them could get me connected to my power supply.
I know im missing something here, because these components were reccomended from the same build from TechSpot. Anyone got an answer.
Thanks.
 

A:Issues with connecting my graphics card to power supply

There is an 8 pin connector for motherboards with 8 pin CPU power connectors. It is not for PCI-E cards. However, according to Newegg's listed specifications, you should have two labeled PCI-E connectors, one with 6 pins and one with 6 plus 2 pins. The 6+2 pins might look like 8 pins but it splits into a 6 and 2 pin so you can use just the 6 pin connector if you need to. Use one of those for your graphics card.

I had recently installed a new power supply (850 W) because my old one was starting to make whining noises that made me think it was dying. After installing it and plugging everything in I turned the computer on and everything was working aside from the graphics card. The processor fan was running, the main fan was running, but the graphics card fans were not going at all...

I swapped out the card with another (actually better) card and it worked (only problem being I don't have a proper adapter for the card to use my current monitor with.)

Is there any reason something like this'd happen? The card is PCI-E and I tried all 4 PCI-E cables for it and none of them powered it up...
 

A:Installed New Power Supply, Graphics Card Won't Work

My initial thought would be a problem with the card itself as you said you put another one in and it worked. However, I assume (from later in your post) that the other card 'working' was assumed because the fans started on it and they don't on your original card?

Do you get any output from the original card to the monitor, you only mention about the fan not working?

I 'was' going to buy a nVidia 275GTX, (about £150) and I think as it says the minimum power output needed is 550w so I should be OK?

Otherwise I'm rocking a AMD Athlon 4600+ (big weak spot, I know, next on list to upgrade), 4Gig of 677Mhz DDR2 and some ****ty generic HDD

TL DR:

Can my power supply run a 275GTX, if not what power supply should I get and if I do have to upgrade, would I be better off splashing some extra cash on something beefier?

Thanks guys,

A:Question about power supply compatibility with graphics card

It may be the way the specs are written on your PS... but
The graphics card does care what the output is... more than the motherboard or other component does...
A cheap power supply from 2005 or before had a better chance of not supplying the minimum power.... Now you can see all these specs for a quality power supply when you look at the descriptive information on the power supply section of Newegg, Directron, ZipZoomFly, cdw.com, and many others... but only in the past year or two has it all been published.

XFX PVT86SYAFG GeForce 8400GS 512MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16
for $54.99 also are you using your DVI connection? if so great! as for your Powersupply,
I would most likely look for a 400W or better, I use a Thermaltake TR2 W0070RUC ATX 430W. it has been great unit, also quiet and very clean power! nice plug connectors and
cables will reach any where! there are at newegg for $39.99. you might just want to get the
video card and decide on the powersupply a little later, good luck,hope this was helpful.

Right now I'm running (2) 24" monitors on the 300W power supply that came with my computer, which apparently is super weak but works fine. I'm going to add a third 24" monitor to my setup so I'm going to need to add a second video card as well, as I can only run two monitors off the card I have now. So with 2 video cards running I'll probably need a better power supply, but unfortunately I know next to nothing about them. I should note I already know what video card I'm going to get, that's not the issue. If a new power supply will do I'd much rather get a new power supply + new video card than one of those matrox triple head adapters or whatever they're called. Any suggestions?

I am starting to think I may have a power supply issue and none of the programs I use seem to monitor it correctly or the power supply is bad. I have been using TOverclocker (came with my Biostar MB), Speccy, Everest, HWinfo64, HWinfo32 and SpeedFan. None of these give me consistent measurements or measure the voltages wrong from opening the program. Is there a monitor program out there that is very good at measuring power supply voltages. My MB is a Biostar TZ68A+. Thanks in advance for the help.

A:Program to monitor Power Supply

What symptoms are you having that you think may be related to a PSU issue?

The best way to measure voltages is not with a software program, but rather with a digital multimeter (set to DC volts on the 20V range or automatic) and using a technique called backprobing whereby the probes are inserted into the back of the power connectors so that they make contact with the wires inside. The only software that I would trust on voltage readings is the hardware monitoring in the BIOS (and even then I would take the digital multimeter reading as being the definitive). This is because software that provides this function takes its readings from the on-board sensors and then applies a predetermined offset which gives you the final output reading. Unfortunately, if the incorrect offset is used, it can lead to cases where a voltage is displayed as being out of tolerance whereas the same voltage tested directly is well within the limits.

Certainly, don't stop using these programs if you wish, but remember that the readings that they give should be treated as a guide and that if you have any undue concerns about any of the readings you should confirm (or otherwise) them with a digital multimeter as described above.

I have a hp f1703 monitor that the power for it is like a laptop supply the specs call for a 12v 40 watt 5 amp supply is it possible to hook it up to the psu of the pc itself or would i fry it ?? reason i ask is because i cant find a power adapter for this unit

DON'T try hooking it up. Buy the power supply for the unit. Here's one:

Hi, i was wondering if any of you know any Power Supply Wattage meters that would fit in the drive bay. Sort of like the Thermaltake Silent PurePower - TWV480 power supply that comes with a total wattage viewer. but i just wanted the wattage view anyone know any good ones?

This unit might be a bit overkill if you only want to measure the AC power consumption but it was all could find with a quick search on Google. It also shows temperature sensors and can control a number of fans.

A:No image on monitor after new power supply

You say the board beeps once. One short beep I think would indicate a DRAM (or more likely its controller) malfunction. You could possibly try to start the system with one RAM stick and try successive memory slots, then alternate with the second stick, but if the board is emitting one short beep then the prognosis is not good.
One long beep would indicate a successful POST (i.e. a normal system start)

A:Monitor Causes Power Supply to Buzz

Some CRTs degauss themselves every time they turn on. So yes, it is probably the degaussing circuits inducing or emitting some noise.

See if you get the buzz with the DVI cable unplugged. If it still buzzes, then the cause is EM radiation and it's nothing to worry about.

How much ram can be installed in a m70e? i've seen sites that offer 8GB sticks.
 
Also is the power supply universal?
 
 
Mod:   edited title to describe the greater scope of thread











Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:M70e Tower-memory, graphics & power supply upgrade

If you don't wish to buy memory from Lenovo, both Kingston and Crucial have 'System Specific' memory for your system that are guarranteed to work. Memory timings must be match what the BIOS expects for the system to recognize it, and generic memory often doesn't work.   
 
Use your Hardware Maintenance Manual for instructions on how to upgrade the memory. After making any memory change, run 2 passes of MemTest86 to ensure all is well.    A few older system types (eg. some models of M58), required a BIOS update to support 4 GB modules.   I'm not familiar with the M70, but it's probably similar to the other models.   If you take the cover off and measure the existing supply, then you'll know if it is a ATX or TFX standard. )
 
The Mini-Tower uses a standar ATX power supply, and the SFF a standard TFX pwer supply. A power connector adapter (ATX to Lenovo) is required for M92 and forward. For the SFF, the maximum aftermarket TFX is 400w, with 350w being more common -- not a huge increase over stock. For the Mini-tower, I have had an 650w aftermarket Corsair in mine (I recommend one that is semi-modular and shorter, as space is limited inside the case.

A:Need input on upgrading graphics card and power supply for my HP p6716f

Link to specs here.

Motherboard picture:

Looks like any PCI express 16x GPU will fit fine, as long as you don't mind losing one of the PCI Express 1x slots for double width GPUs.

It has an ATX power supply, so that should cover pretty much anything you replace it with, but deeper power supplies might be hit and miss and you'd need to measure whether they would fit. ATX format power supplies are made to industry standard dimensions in terms of height and width, but different ATX power supplies do differ in depth. So an ATX should fit, but ultimately it depends on how much space you have between the back of the case and the back of the DVD drives for clearance.

The power supply you choose is dependant on the GPU you choose. If you could let us know the following, we could help you select the best option for you:

1. Your total budget, for a power supply and graphics card.
2. The intended usage of the computer -- if its gaming, what sort of games?
3. What resolution and detail do you wish to play these games at. The max resolution is dictated by the max resolution of your display, but it is an important factor to consider.
4. If you have preferred shops, list them. Newegg is fine if you like to shop there though.
5. How many fans does that case have, and where are they located -- upgrading to a higher end GPU introduces heat into the case in most cases, so cooling must be considered.
6. What processor is fitted in your computer? That model number has multiple CPU options.

A:How does power supply amps effect requirements (performance) of the graphics card?

Your PSU has a triple +12v rail design so you will use the combined amperage across all three rails. In this case, you have a combined rating of 54amps, which is far more than enough to run the latest video cards. The PSU is also CrossFire and SLI certified so running a single card that requires only 22amps should be a breeze for that power supply. Having an underpowered PSU may produce graphical anomalies or prevent a video card from functioning at all, just to answer your question.

Yeah should be fine, but of course, its not a particularly good card. You should be ok with the source engine if you load up the proper configs.

This happens: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfY4A8gQ1bE

The horizontal lines disappear shortly after removing the power supply, and come back when it's reconnected.

Observations and steps taken:

- The computer has been connected to multiple power supplies in different rooms. This behavior happens regardless of the power supply.

- This doesn't start right away when the computer boots up - only after some time.

- It also doesn't seem to happen in safe mode, but I haven't tested it under heavy processor load in safe mode.

What is happening? What steps should I take?

A system restore resolved this temporarily, but the Windows Update which installed immediately afterwards caused it to start happening again.

Hello!

I'm currently running on an eMachines ET1831-07, and as such have a 250w power supply and just a chipset. (I have no idea what I'm talking about, this is what my fiancé told me to post. I trust him because he's a computer science major >.>) I was wondering if there's a power supply with 300w output that I can upgrade to without.. Err.. Melting my motherboard, since the only graphics cards I can find that he says will make any difference on my game quality require 300w.

I'm not looking for max fps, or high quality graphics or anything, I just want the games to be playable.

Thanks much!
~Hannah

Edit: If anyone could also recommend a graphics card that I could use, I'd really appreciate that too! I have one PCI 16 pin slot open, and one PCI express pin slot according to my fiancé. Thank you!

i bought the antec true power 2.0 430w and after the installation tried to turn it on but it didnt work so checked the wires if they are installed properlly, then i figured out that the 20 pin main power connector(to the motherboard) is missing a wire usually u can see the metal part inside of the wire by look from the top on the connector. so im not sure ist suppose to be like that or just badly made.

Hello. I have a problem, and it's kind of serious...I have a computer (System #2 in my profile) with a Antec 500W power supply...Today, I tried to turn the computer on, and it wouldn't boot, and there was this strange high pitched noise coming from the computer. Tried a couple more times, still wouldn't work. So, I disconnected all of the power cables to all of the devices in the computer and checked the PSU, and lo-and-behold, a high-pitched whine comes from the PSU whenever it's plugged in to current and switched on, even when no devices are hooked up to the PSU. Does this sound like I need a replacement?

Hi,

until yesterday everything was fine with my pc (very stable). today pc won`t start.

the problem: the power light and cpu fan go on for less then a second and then they go off.
I unplugged everything (except MOBO) and then it works (I can get to the Bios Setup).

i can plug anything i want EXCEPT the hard drive, and it works: again, I get to the Bios Setup and everything is recognized (cd-rom, floppy).

I already tried plugging the hdd with different cables (data and power), but that didn't help.

extra info:
- hdd is samsung, 3 months old.

Any help is really appreciated!

i had installed a program a few day ago and it asked me to restart my computer which i did but when i booted it back up the power supply fan got really loud. so im not sure if it thinks its heating up too much or a bearing is being loud or wut is going on. its a power up Gen-6803 800 watt power supply only about 2 years old if that. if there is something there is i can do plz help and if not then i guess ill either hav to live with it or get a new power supply...
 

A:power supply fan problem

You could try replacing the fan, but it's more worth it buying a new quality power supply. Power-up is not exactly the top of the line. Get one with a 3-5 yr warranty (and a good brand: Corsair, PC power and cooling, FSP, Seasonic, OCZ, Enermax, Antec(not Basiq), Thermaltake(some of them offer ridicilously less power than their model (xxxW) suggests, be careful, post info here before buying), Zalman.. And you won't have to worry about lousy or loud fans for a while..

All these are very much comparible with your current one, and will offer at least as much power.

After troubleshooting my previous issue I finally got my computer up and running. However after I put in my various PCI cards into the motherboard when I started up the computer....it turned on then off. I tried to restart it but when I would cycle the power it wouldn't turn on. I would have to unplug it, plug it back in and then I would get the same result: the fan would spin then it would power down. The power supply is new. I have tried everything from taking all PCI cards and removable drives off the power supply to resetting the CMOS in case I messed up a setting in there. Any suggestions?

A:power supply problem

Please post the make/model of your PSU. Looking at your system specs, I would expect that your PSU is not powerful enough to supply the demands of your system. Once you provide more details it will be easier to narrow down your exact issue.

A:Power Supply Problem

I suppose you could try to replace the bad capacitor if that's the only thing wrong with it. How good are you with a soldering iron? It seems likely there is more damage than that, however.

I would just replace it with a quality unit, not the cheapest one you can find. If you go cheap, you may just find your self repeating this process in the near future and end up paying more in the end.

Alright having a problem here. Seconds to minutes after I turn on my computer, it turns back off. Usuually if i leave it off for a while, it will stay on longer, but the more I turn it on, the shorter it gets. It did the same thing when I was building my computer as it doing now, and the problem then was a Power Supply one, the solution in that case baing gettign a new one. I have had this problem in the past with this same power supply and all i did to fix it before was to replug in the power coords from my PS to my Mobo. But no go on that this time.

What I am asking is, am I am wrong in assuming it's the power supply? Does this happen often with failed PS's?

Thanks

A:Power Supply problem?

Do u think the PS is the problem here?Click to expand...

Possibly, but unlikely.

The UPS battery will run out until you unplug everything plugged *into* it and then turn it off (but plugged into the wall outlet) overnight.

Try this: plug your PC directly into the wall outlet.

-or-

plug your PC power cable into one of the non-battery outlets in the UPS (usually reserved for a laser printer).

One of those three should pinpoint the issue.

Of course just after submitting this thread it crashed whilst my 660ti was in, which rules out my gtx 970 being the culprit.

Looks like its time for a new PSU.
