WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Remove the memory modules from their slots. Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors. Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth. Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components. Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r Allow the pins to dry. They will air dry in a matter of minutes. If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer. Check the memory module and memory slot contacts. They are either copper tin or gold. The colour will tell you which they are. Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact. Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard. Reseat the memory modules. You should hear an audible click when they are in place. Do not use too much force to reseat the memory module in to the slot this can cause damage to the module, slot or motherboard. The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.


The device drivers for the hardware are faulty or incompatible. Could be a problem with the Hard Drive or the Hard drives PCB http://www.onepcbsolution.com/ There is a connection problem such as a bad cable for internal hard drives
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ide this will be the first to fail Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy (If Applicable) have secure connections and are not faulty. or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: System will not start up. Cpu fan spins once, then nothing.

It is more than likely that when your old power supply died a death, it damaged some components on the motherboard. Replace the Motherboard and chip, and you should be back in business. You can pick up some good value bundles to save money on buying the parts seperately. The power supply working again after turning off and on, is because there is a little trip in the power supply that triggers when it detects a fault. Powering down resets that trip allowing it to try and work again.

Cooler Master 1000w Silent Pro M not compatible with MSI MS-7548 (Aspen) motherboard?

So you're using the same CPU 4+4 Pin x2 power cable on both rigs?
(One of them)

Yes, I see it's a modular cable design, and the CPU 4+4 Pin x2 power cable, can be used as a single 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#eps4plus4

ALL Yellow wires are 12 Volt (DC) wires.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

ALL 12 Volt wires go to ONE single 12 Volt power rail, in the Power Supply, BUT; there is nothing saying an individual Yellow wire may be bad.
This is why I wondered if you are using the SAME power cable CONNECTOR. Same power cable.

Yes?
Then suggest it has something to do with the Active PFC circuit.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Anatomy-of-Switching-Power-Supplies/327/6

Not aware of any setting to change in BIOS Setup utility - Power.

BUT, I do not know everything! lol!

IMHO there is no reason it will not work, unless as said; something to do with the Active PFC circuit.

From here let's hope someone who really knows what is going on, will post.

Why is PC cutting out when graphics under load


Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Smayson.

You computer system is quite substantial. It needs a solid, stable power supply. One that can output high loads for a continued period of time.

I would say you need a power supply of at least 850Watts form a good Power supply manufacturer. Corsair or Cooler Master. 80+ efficiency if possible.
It is also a good idea to take your computer system into a computer store for testing. They could connect a good power supply and check that it solves your problem, before purchase.
Take care!

I need a repair manual for cooler master RS-550 PSU, high voltage came to our house and it got shorted


Never repaired one of these, just bought new ones if one got shorted or just happened to fail. I would reccomend putting any PC, laptop, etc on a surge protector though to prevent what seems to have occured to you on this particular unit. I lost one for the same reason and it took my mobo, hdd, and PSU at the same time. Needless to say I basically had to start over on my Asus custom build.

Power supply compatible for cooler master cac-t05-uw


Most brands like HEC, Gigabyte, FPS, Cooler Master, Enermax, Silver stone, Corsair, etc. Will fit in your casing but you must consider your hardware before buying a power supply.

Most power supplies that are priced below $30 generally do not meet the power requirements of the latest processors. To make matters worse, the components used in them are of inferior quality and more likely to fail over time. While they may power the computer system, inconsistencies in the power to the components will tend to cause instability and damage to the computer.

Consider the ff:

ATX12V Compliant
PC Power Supply Wattage
Silent PC Power Supplies
Power Efficiency
Having the right number of connectors

PSU Wattage Calculator Asus
PSU Wattage Calculator extreme


Hopefully this helps..

How to check if my power supply is already not ''at the limit''?


1 or 2 extra hdds and ram does not require much extra power and your coolmaster should do the job. But if you intend to use a newer graphic card you should check the requirenments for wattage at your new card manufacturer product specification webpage. I am pretty sure that almost all newer graphic cards require at least 500 watt to run without problem. My advise is to buy at least a 550 watt psu although i don't know what is your hardware. Try to post your hardware specs and calculate for each component (cpu wattage+graphics wattage +etc) your power supply need to be over 50 wattage. Hope that helped!

Yeah, that would hack it. I could see wanting a 700W-rated supply in case I sourced nicer (but higher-draw) videocards, but that's enough.

My computer wont turn on


Sound like 'classic' failing capacitor symptoms to me... RMA the power supply if you're able to, start scraping together some cash for either a rebuild (replace capacitors) if you can't OR purchase a NEW PSU

Once you get the system running... I would recommend you leave it turned on 24/7 as this will keep the failing capacitors at a static temperature (instead of the heating/cooling cycle) thus milking the last bit off life out of it while you secure a replacement unit.
