Testecull, can you be a little more descriptive for us? Do you have another PSU to test with? If you have a multimeter handy you could also test the voltages. Here is an excellent guide for testing the voltages: http://www.clunk.org.uk/forums/guide...ing-guide.html.
The sound coming from your UPS is a normal occurrence whenever is switches to the battery. Does your machine restart/shutdown with anything else or is it only when you go to youtube? If it's only youtube then it sounds like it might be related to your operating system.

Let us know

Good luck

Patient has deceased. It won't stay on long enough to multimeter test the voltages, and it's all a moot point as the damn chipset cooler fell off while I was fiddling around inside it. All the info I had while it was running is presented here, soon I might be getting me mitts on a new mobo and 3800 X2, so I can see if the PSU is at fault. I did force it to run, by clipping the green wire and grounding it into a molex, so the PSU runs if it has AC in. Didn't prevent the mobo from shutting off, but now it can't kill the PSU. No effect on runtimes.

OMG this thing is so stubburn. Lazarus has, once more, awakened from the land of the dead. Hasn't done it yet today. Waiting for it to do it again.
