Power supply dying?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This morning when I tried to boot up my computer It refused to POST But would display the T series logo.
Eventually I unplugged the DVD drive and the case USB plugs and now the board POSTS and everything boots fine now.
Also it did the same thing with my probably defective 5830 which is being RMA'd right now.

So I'm thinking the power supply is dying (which makes sense as It's a piece of crap generic product.) So any thoughts?

I have that same XPower 585 sitting in my parts closet, it's a mediocre 350watt unit at best. Get a decent one from a reputable company.

So it wouldn't boot until you unplugged the DVD drive and/or USB drives? Is the PSU being overloaded that much by your peripheral devices lol? What BIOS are you running? I have the same board. They just released a new BIOS couple weeks ago. http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en-us...s.php?S_ID=377

Yeah I'll be buying a new psu as soon as I can scrape together 100 bucks.
I'm not quite sure what BIOS I'm running as when I bought the 955 i had to flash to a beta bios for it to work... I'll try flashing to the newer version today.
Edit: actually i think that's the bios for the .5x version of the board which i don't have.
