Question about Antec SmartPower SP-500 (ASKU37152) 500-Watt Power Supply

1 Answer

Antec sp-500 power up?

This power supply seems to have changed genders and will now only start when it wants. This is not the right time of year for me to just run out and buy another. Any suggestions before I open it or shoot it?

Hi oldgunny, I think you would be better to shoot it befor opening it. The only serviceable part inside is a fuse and if this was blown then it would not start at all, so regretable as it may be you will need to replace it.

If the fan that is working is the outside fan on the power supply and if your case is well ventillated there wont be a problem. If not then buy a new power supply.

It is best you replace this power supply.

Computer will not start. No fans, hard drive or monitor motion at all. But, a green light on my motherboard blinks.


Out university has hhad a failure rate on antec 450w psu of 40-50% over 4 years (total number of pc:s with this psu was approx. 300). Check your motherboard with a known-to-be-good power supply.

Turn on the computer nothing happen then smell burning from the power supply! turned off right away.


That power supply is probably dead. try your motherboard witha known-to-be-good power supply to determine if your system has survived. IN my experience the failrate for antec sp450 watt psu is close to 40% over 4 years (300 pc:s at university), so there is a high probability that your psu is unrecoverable.

Plugged computer back in after move and won't start. green light in mb on.


Actually, there is nothing you can do with the hard drive. If its shorting out the power supply when its pugged in then it is defective. However, most hard drives carry a 3 year warranty from the manufacture. If the drive is younger then 3 years old, I would call the manufacture and get it repaired or replace. Hope this helps . . .
