Low 12v rail!

Hey, when I check my 12v rail it says I'm running 11.0 and sometimes in the 10s! Is there anyway I can get this up? This is when it's sitting here doing nothing and when it's doing games or looking for something on HD. Is there anyway to give this thing some more juice so my GFX card and HDs will work right?

    I went back and checked it with a MM... Seems it's just the windows programs reading it wrong. Original BIOS and with MM says everything is fine. I mainly noticed hardcore lag (the hardware type) while playing BF2 ... even with my geforce 6800 gt oc and 2gb ram... Oh well... Need a new PC.

Replace that PSU as soon as possible. When supply voltage is too low, then current is increased to compensate, resulting in more heat. This can damage your video card and motherboard.
I know it is possible to replace bad components or to upgrade a low quality power supply with better components, but it takes soldering skills, and safety is an issue as well. Unless you plan to do it yourself and you have a lot of free time, then it will be more cost effective to replace the power supply with a better model, as the cost of a professional repair is much more than it costs to just buy a new one. From reading on the forums, Raidmax is not a good brand and they usually use low quality and underpowered components for the rating they claim.
I personally have one with a burnt out component that I plan to fix as soon as I find a schematic or learn the specs of the old component. I have a lot of free time and little money.
Don't throw out your defective power supply. There are still a lot of good components that could be salvaged for electronics projects. It may be worth a few bucks to an electronics enthusiast, but it's worth it to give it away for free or the cost of postage just to keep it out of the landfill.

I have a dell dib75r pinevalley mainboard I need to know whats the max power supply i can apply to this motherboard pls. for graphics card

The stock 305W power supply guarantees 20 to 25W on the +5VSB rails and 150 to 170W on the 3.3v/5V Rails. Many GTX 750 TI now say (300W PSU that can supply 18 AMPS MIN on the 12v rail aka 216W on the 12v rail.

Many EPS 12v power supplies only guarantee 10 to 15W on the +5VSB and 125 to 130W on the 3.3v Rails.

This means you buy the supply and it may not even turn on. If it does it wont work with the 960 card installed.

Buying a power supply is not a single 12v rail and thats the only thing it uses.

There are many users who should have gotten a corsair RM1000 but instead chose an ATX not EPS 12v power supply at 500 to 750W and they have the Solid Amber Light of *****. EPS12v 2.92 for 750W and up guarantees 150W on the 3.3v rail, 20W on the +5vsb rail and 375W on the 12v Rails minimum.

I have a fuel pressure tester but I don't know how to check it on a 2006 Taurus with the 3.0 12v motor. I think the fuel pump is bad because sometimes the car does not start. I am unable to tell if the...

Located on the fuel rail ( silver or chrome lines holding fuel injectors) you will find a cap at one end that looks like a valve stem cover. When you remove the cover you will find a connector which resembles a tire valve stem. You will connect the fuel pressure tester to this port, and you will need a second person to help. Once connected you will want the helper to turn the key to the on position while watching the gauge. You should see a small pressure rise when the key is cycled from off to on several times. Then with the tester still attached have you helper start the car. You should see a increased pressure around 40PSI. You should check with ford for the proper fuel rail pressure. The gauge should only move about 5 pounds or so while idling.
If you do not have fuel pressure I would first suggest checking the fuel pump relay and it contacts to make sure the relay is working properly. If the relay is working and you still have little pressure the I would change the fuel filter. After that if you still have low pressure I would suggest replacing the pump.

Lights not working

Headlight low beams blow simultaneously sometimes. Actually quite often, for some reason.

Check for voltage with a 12v test light or a voltmeter at the light bulb plug.

I think you're right that it is the blower fan. It could be a bad connection on it - that will work when it's hot enough to dry it out, or it may be worn out or sticky.
It needs investigating anyway.

You could first try putting 12V across it to see if it is an electrical issue, or rotating it by hand when cool to see if it is siezing.

Sometimes replacement is needed, but could also be just a bad connection.
