Power supply or motherboard

Recommended Posts

Curiously I have found out my power supply though not completely dead can't seem to boot up any motherboard I tried except my old Asus p5q pro.

 

I bought a Corsair gs600 and everything fired up on my new build. I do recall one of my USB ports shorted out about a year ago on that board. Maybe it killed something inside the PSU. /shrug.

 

Has your +5VSB rail died?

 

... this rail is used on the power USB ports and your motherboard wouldn't fire up without it.

Reading is a skill you do not possess :)

I do believe he can read...

Right here you are saying the the PSU could be bust....

 

DrDeath offered up the perfect way of testing it to make sure it is running right. You say you have tested it but at the same time say it's not working.

 

So is it good or bad? Will you do as DrDeath suggested or can you detail how you tested the thing?

I tested it with a multi meter , how else could I have tested it. It tested fine but only powers up the asus board I used to own. The two new ones didn't power up.

It's not a big deal, just a curious one.

Thanks for the replies
