Supply voltage issue...

Iv read on other sites that the x1650 pro requires a certain voltage level for the power supply. The load on my power supply is not to exceed 250 v. I know this is much above what the video card even asked for as a required. Is this an issue is it gonna come back to haunt me?

The x1650 card requires extra amperage, not extra voltage. It runs on the same 12 volts as the rest of the computer. The issue is that if you have an underpowered power supply, of if you have a lot of other devices hooked up, you may need a better power supply to provide enough wattage to the card. As long as you have at least a 400w power supply, I would expect you to be alright.

What is power supply


Fault with main board. Damaged component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary

Benefits of a UPS (Uninterrupted power supply


We all use many devices and equipments that run on electricity. For all these to function properly they need uniform power supply (constant flow of electricity). As the electric supply in many countries is not uniform there is a need for a device to correct it. There are many such devices available in the market today. For example UPS (Uninterrupted power supply), Voltage Stabilizer, Constant Voltage Transformer are such devices available today.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Why buy a UPS?</u></b><br />We can never guarantee that we will get constant power. The power supply always has fluctuations. Surges, Spikes, Brownouts, Blackouts and Noise can damage your electrical appliances especially your computer. To prevent this from happening you need a device that does power conditioning. Electricity has to be uninterrupted. If the voltage is higher than the specified level then it is 'Over Voltage'. If the voltage is lower than the specified level then it is 'Under Voltage'. Both Spike and Surge come under 'Over Voltage' category. But there is a small difference between spike and surge. If there is very high voltage for an instant but comes back to normal immediately then it is called 'Spike'. If there is very high voltage for a slightly longer period then it is called 'Surge'. If the voltage is dangerously reduced to very low within a short period of time then it is called 'Brownout'. When this happens, the computer can be seriously damaged. If the power supply is totally cut then it is called 'Blackout'. Noise can mix with electromagnetic or radio waves or any signals. This is called 'Line Noise'. This may also reduce the voltage level to very low within a short period of time.<br /> <br /> <b><u>How can the UPS provide power when the main electrical supply is cut?<br /></u></b>A UPS has an internal battery. With this battery charger, an Inverter is also present. The inverter converts the 'Direct current' supplied by the battery to 'Alternatinc current' as required by the computer. When there is electrical supply the charger in the UPS charges the internal battery. When there is a power cut, the battery kicks in to supply the DC which is converted to AC by the inverter and power is supplied to computer.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>What if the battery loses its power?</u></b><br />When there is power cut, the required power is taken from the battery. Therefore the battery keeps losing its capacity. If the power supply comes back before the battery is depleted then the battery charger will start recharging, but if the power supply doesn't come back then the battery keeps supplying until it totally drains out. When the battery drains below a certain level the UPS sounds an alarm for your to shut down your computer and turn off the UPS. Some UPS' even have a built in system that shuts your computer down for you after a certain amount of UPS uptime.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>How long can the UPS provide power when there is a blackout?</u></b><br />This all depends on the specifications of the UPS and the requirement of the computer. A 600vA UPS for example can supply power to a computer with a 550W power supply for about 10 minutes or more.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Tips for buying an UPS</u></b><br />The backup time of your UPS is the most important you need to consider. Other than that, you should know how many KVA (Kilo Volt Ampere) your UPS has. A computer needs atleast 0.5 KVA (500VA) to function. If you are planning to connect more than one computer to a single UPS then you need to get one with a higher KVA.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>What type of battery does a UPS use?</u></b><br />UPS uses <b>SMF</b> batteries (Sealed Maintenance Free). These type of batteries can be used for 5 to 7 years continuously.

No. You must use a 5V ac adapter/power supply.
But are you certain that you need 5V ac to power your modem ? Where are you located Jane ?

Western digital external hard with Ethernet port has no power. do you suggest any fix


Do you have a volt meter? Or Know someone with a volt meter. Check the power supply to see if it is putting out the required voltage. If it is bad, you can get the voltage needed off the main plug, read the output voltage and go to wally world or radio shak and by a fit all kit that adjust power level. Universal power converter.

ATI x1650 Pro Stops!?


For this card they recomment at leat a power supply rating of 450 watts. If you have lower than this then I would suggest upgrading the power supply. A 550 watt psu is reasonably priced and should give you plenty of power for future use. Hope this helps.
