Software voltage monitoring is worthless. Period.

I need to make an article on that and it needs to be stickied.

I would recommend using a multimeter to check your voltages.


use this guide to help you

If those numbers are right, most cases they arent, then most likely that is whats causing problems. I dont think you can even boot with those voltages though. Wait for an expert to answer for verification.

EDIT: The expert has spoken. Look above

Hey Phaedrus, you mind recommending a good, preferably as low cost as possible, tool that one could use for these types of tests? I have absolutely no electrical knowledge so please excuse my ignorance.

Yeah I made an article similar to this and Phaedrus2129 said the same thing to me.

Any brands or models in particular? Or will they all pretty much accomplish the same thing?

Most DMMs under $25 are exactly the same and come from the same factory with different colored plastic and branding. They look like this:



I've seen that model sold under like twenty brand names. One of mine is red and says Cen-Tech, the other is green. They're both internally identical.
