(Ps. I think he better takes his PC-technician remark out of his sig, as he's clearly not)Off topic for a moment...
Well sir, I must say, with what was said, I got pretty upset. I am not however, going to get into a heated debate on this scale/type of forum with an administrator of all people right now. Nor do I plan on doing it in the future. However, I will express some input, small and polite.
What you said was seriously offensive. And this is coming from an administrator of a support forum, that is responsible for public relations of one of the biggest companies in the world? I appreciate your help, but you lost points in my book for this.
You cannot make that assumption based off of a forum thread, coming from a person whom you know not. But, I understand you do not know
who I am, or what I do. I am going to fill you in with a small "411", just so you know how wrong and rude and completely unprofessional you were.
a PC technician. I have been doing this type of work for 14 years. I am currently a Highest Honors Student and on schedule to graduate Top of my Class for Computer Science at ITT Technical Institute. So, my understanding in this aspect alone, is well....
I do not lie about these things. I have seriously never ran into this weird of a problem before. I am not lying about what I do, or trying to impress
an online community of geeks and/or professionals like myself. I am truly confused.Back on topic...
I am going to try to switch my PSU, when I get some money. If that does not work out, I will buy a new board. I am going to, and have planned from the beginning to use process of elimination.
But, seeing as how this is such a recommended and world known company/support forum, I was hoping maybe someone had this problem and knew how to fix it, if at all repairable. Or, get help for my issue, as I am now.
Hello! Please change PSU. Logisys is no good, no good at all. Rosewills are bad enough, and like you see in the link you so kindly provided, you get two Logisys for the money of a Rosewill PSU rated at 530 W. (I can in other stores find it at $20.) In fact, that is a pretty good place to start the troubleshooting.
Logisys says the 575 W unit, the one you got, can do max:
+3.3V@38A, +5V@40A, +12V@25A, -12V@0.8A, +5VSB@2.0A
I simply don't believe it, and the high 5 volt tells me it is following an old, old standard. Well, 2004/2005 can be old, too.
This is rather revealing: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0360348
I will look at the link you gave me in a moment. I am almost positive it is the PSU. I will try that, then the motherboard if the PSU does not work.
Any other ideas would not hurt. PS: Maybe a moderator wants to move this thread to another forum, it just seems that it is not at all BIOS related any more.
