Is my PSU fried!?!?!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

My comp failed to turn on today after shutting it down last night. Apparently according to my wife it has had trouble turning on a couple of times lately. I jumped the PSU and it turned on, so I then tried like the Duke always suggests and isolated it on a box with the bare essentials running. It still failed to turn on though the motherboard power LED light comes on. I then checked the PSU rails with a multimeter and here is the kicker, I got almost no readings. I was only able to read one 5V pin and one 3V from the 24 pin plug and nothing from any of the molexes.

I'm pretty sure my PSU is fried, but am I missing something here? DOn't have a spare PSU to test it with...

Sounds to me like you figured it out. You could always invest in a PSU tester when you get he chance. They are pretty cheap.

probably fried.

look on the bright side... it didn't take anything with it

On my last build, I had a PSU go bad... it took out the mobo, processor, and RAM all in one go.

go grab a new one

You could even get by with the antec EW 380 if your just trying to get your system back up on the cheap, with a quality seasonic oem.

Or you could get a Corsair HX*20 and get a 5 year warranty, and a quality PSU that will last through a couple upgrades.

Well I bought a new rosewill PSU along with a free tester. Tested my old one and had one missing LED, but when I tested the new one it was the same. Installed the new one with same issues: nothing turns on except LED on motherboard. I am now thinking this is a MB issue - should I buy a new one?

WHAT A NOOB!!!!!!!!! Forgot I had the power button plugged in! Nevermind. It's works now! Thanks for the help!
