Question about Abit KV7-V Motherboard
I think my power supply has fried. The computer was on and suddenly shut down. I let it set for awhile and it started back up but shut down after about 30min withan electical burn smell. I want to replace it but am confused. The old one is a POWMAX, ATX Switching Power Source @ 400watts. What would be a good replacement and maybe with a little more power?
Thanks sandrew. The power connection was fine. I ordered a new power supply 500w and have just finished installing it. And it is running fine.

Follow the power cable from the PSU to the motherboard and see if the 21 connection has melted to the motherboard. You are better getting a 500W silent type, but it depends on the peripherals you have installed, try www.ebuyer.com for various makes.
