How good is that what's the 12v amps.
If yoiu can try a spare bios chip it's worth it - bin there done that :)


25A on 12v rail. It's been fine for more than a year. I used this psu on my old Ultra-D without any issues whatsoever, & i've already been using it for about 3 months with this mobo.

Where do I get a bios chip from? It's worth a shot I suppose if it's cheap enough.

Thanks

with a generic psu ain't a lot & your psu may be overloaded & has decided to call it a day. your not showing a very detailed spec so your power usage is unknown but if your heavily ocing with a 6800 or better then + 2/3 hd etc., then ?????

re bios chip Tmod Replacement Bios Chips but is US based. U might find i4memory isi think aussie based Eva2000 may be able to help with asource.

luck :)

Hi,

Tried that last night. Did nothing just as I suspected :(

I've come to the conclusion it's shorting out on somthing. Because if I dont have the 4pin P4 connector plugged into the motherboard it powers up & I get 4 red leds which stay on.

If I plug the P4 connector into the motherboard & try to power up I get the symptoms listed above. Power on for millisecond then it automatically powers itself off with a very faint "click" which I have now narrowed down to the power supply. I've tried 4 different power supplies & I hear the same "click" with each one (all power supplies have been tested 100% fine on different machine). Must be some internal overload protection in the power supply kicking in to ensure the psu doesnt fry or somthing.

Thx for your help

G'day,

I have 1 x Opteron 146 cpu running at stock speed with HSF installed, 1 x 4mb S3 Trio PCI video card, & 1 x stick of ram in the motherboard.

I've just tested all power supplies on a separate system with a lot more perephials than I am currently using & they are all fine.

No way it's overloaded.

Thanks for the tips :)

Hi,

I've been over the board with a fine tooth comb front & back. I couldnt see any burn marks/blow caps anywhere...

Totally baffeled on this one. I've been through a lot of mobos & seen all kinds of weird & whackey stuff happen. However it looks like this one is going to get the better of me :(
