Question about Sunbeamtech SUNNU550-US-SV Nuuo 550 Watt Power Supply (Silver) Retail (SUNNU550USSV) Power Supply

NO VIDEO SIGNAL

Hello,
I have an ASUS P5N-E SLI motherboard. Installed are two sticks (1Gig each) of DDR2 RAM, a EVGA GeForce 7950 GT PCIE video card, Intel Quad core processor, etc. When I power on the computer, the mobo light goes on, the PSU powers on, and so does the case fan and the the video card's fan. What fails to go on is the CPU's heatsink fan. Also I get no video signal on my LCD. I tried using a brand new video card to see if the video card is the problem, but I get the same error with the new video card. So the video card is ruled out.
I also tried using a different LCD monitor and I get the same error.
Has you experienced this problem before?
If the problem pointed directly to the heatsink fan, then I should at least get a few seconds of video on my LCD. I get nothing but, "NO VIDEO SIGNAL"
I do see that the fan on the PSU is spinning lightly, not with much enthusiasm.

Thanks

    The microresisters and the capacitors look good. No signs of bulging or browning.

    I will try and test the PSU since I was adviced to do so by a user in a different forum.

    Thank you for you quick response.

You'll need to check the PSU first, you might want to buy a PSU Tester for 24pin PSUs.

Then you might want to do a in depth examination of your motherbard circuit components by doing the following...

Look for burned/broken microresistors. You might need a magnifying glass and good lighting. Any resistor showing a little blob or browning is burned. Microresistors are those minuscule black,gray,brown or white rectangles lying all over the motherboard's traces. Check first the ones near the power supply connector and near the chips, specially one that says winbond on it, this last ones may get burned from USB overloading, from using non-self powered hubs also called passive hubs.

You may check for blown capacitors, capacitors are those standing cylinders with a plastic cover around them with numbers and letters printed in those covers. On top they are left without a cover and they are aluminum color, they may be flat or have one or more grooves runing across the top. A blown capacitor, looks different from the others because it looks a little bloated on the top, or may have spilled some sort of transparent varnish from its bottom to the motherboard or its top to other components around.

Finally you may suspect of the CPU, athlons get very warm and they can get burned too. Never start your pc without a cpu.

Hello, I recently bought a CX500 PSU, and i have an issue with it. When I unplug the wall power cord and then plug it back, the PC turns on by itself and all my BIOS settings are reset with a MemOK!...


Did you check the battery on the motherboard? The battery should read 3.3 volts with a volt meter. If you don't have a meter you can try swapping the battery from another motherboard. Or have the battery checked at a Radio Shack store. Also if you still have the Seasonic try hooking it back uo temporally outside the case to check if it is a power supply issue. If the old power supply failed while being connected to this motherboard it could have damaged it.
Thanks for using FixYa

Power Supply and Video keep going out.


I would suggest that you try and check the system with another power pack, just to be sure that it is not the power supply that is faulty.
This is because what you have describe here is one of the symptoms of a failing power supply, and It is not always advisable to take a power supply case lightly, and when it is detected that its the one that is faulty, Just change the power pack OUTRIGHT! and please don't think of repairing it. It is not always expensive though, as compared to if your whole system now starts to develop fault because of it.
Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck.

Thermaltake Power Express 450 problem: Have to wait one hour !


The problem is obviously with the Thermaltake PSU.

I'm thinking either it's not turning on at the same time as the primary PSU, or it isn't feeding stable, clean voltages to the graphics card. Either calls for a return to the manufacturer.

Now on to getting your video working. What you want is enough power going to your video card. Try connecting the card to your primary PSU instead of the Thermaltake one. 630W might be enough depending on how reliable the brand is, as they often lie.

If it doesn't work, getting a more powerful primary power supply will fix the problem. Go for 750W+to be safe.

NVidia GeForce 9300 265MB with a 250 watt PSU


GeForce 9300GE is the video card
GeForce 9300 is the motherboard

Also 250 Watt would not be sufficient for most new video cards. Most need a 450+ for requirements.

Giga Ethernet is short for Gigabyte Ethernet which allows for more speed if you have a higher speed internet service

Take the ram back out of the computer that you just installed and see if you have the same problem. If you do, a board or plug must have came loose when you were inside the unit. If the problem clears up, the ram you are trying to use is bad or not compatible with your computer. All ram is not alike. Good Luck
