it booted once yesterday

 

then warning came up from AI im guessing and said 5V LOW at 4.8V and then the system just cut out.

 

 

its not booting today but the fans spin if i clear the cmos and then stop and it doesnt even post

 

the first time i tried this morning though it did... i got into the bios and the bios also reported low 5v voltage rail and then BANG - just cut out even from in the bios

 

 

PSU pooped? or....

 

cheers

Measure with multimeter. Plug into molex, red for positive (5v) and either black. Press power button, and whats the voltage?

it was not enough for the bios thats all i know -

 

just spoken to novatech and they just suggested RMA so i can swap it today it was on about 4.4V in the bios and RED then just died

 

dont have multimeter

 

 

[13:03:46] <Mike>: Hmmm that's not very old

[13:06:33] <gustie>: i know

[13:04:25] <Mike>: The only thing I can do is give you a return nmber as there's not much you can do about the 5v rail

 

 

novatech support seems good also ^^ :)
