Major power supply problems, need help.

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Greetings everyone. About two months ago or so my, Antec True power 50 kicked the bucket. My computer was acting strangely and it eventually shut off as I as using it. I then went to the computer to investigate, and the power supply smelled like burnt toast. I went out and purchased the OCZ 700w power supply. The computer initially would not turn on. I tried to play with several cables thinking that there was a loose connection, and I proceeded to try to turn it on. It only would flicker on for a second and then shut off. After doing that a couple of times, I smelled a similar burning smell, although not as strong. After adjusting and playing with a couple of more cables, I got it to turn on with no problem. Now today, I turned the computer off to install a new CD-ROM drive, and I can not get it to turn back on for the life of me. I once again smelled a slight burning smell, and had the same symptons as before. The motherboard power light is solid yellow, and does not flicker. I believe I am missing two motherboard stand off's, but I dont have it screwed into the case at those points. The first power supply never exhibited problems with the stand off's being like this. Any suggestions?

Alright, I tested the power supply using the method provided, and it turned on and stayed on with no issues, nor a burning smell. I decided to pull the motherboard out to inspect it for issues, and when I pulled it out, on the bottom left corner of the motherboard below the sound card section and video card section there was a quarter of an inch burn mark on the inside of the case. I rubbed my finer on it and smelled it and its identical to the smell that I was smelling. What does everyone suggest I do next?

What are standoffs? TO assure the motherboard doesn't touch the case?

I should not try to toy with it and put more stand off's in the case?

Got it nvm. Make sure there is no contact between the motherboard and the case. And ya, if your motherboard is burnt somewhere, RMA it, cause there might be damage internal circuits in the motherboard, so I wouldn't attempt starting a whole new rig out of it.
