    i'm having a similar problem. i unplugged and moved and when i plugged it back in, it won't power up. no noise though.

    same here, move the computer, plug back to wall, but it won't start. no noise at all.

    however, if you wait for 30 minutes plugged in. it can start.

    is it b/c some capacitor in the ps needs to be charged up?

Pls try change the power cable if it works then check your power pack if the FAN doesn't roll that means you have to change the power pack thanks. abass_october@yahoo.com

Power Supply Dry Run Problem


You need to have the case's power switch plugged into the jumper pin header of the motherboard. Plug in the PSU into the 120 volt mains, enable the PSU via the switch (the one you turned on in the video) and then press the power switch on the computer CASE.
That should do it!

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.

5 yr old Asus with antec 450 power supply has had NO issues ever. Now I need to turn the ps off and on 2 or 3 times before the start switch at the front of the comp will work.... once it boots up...


there are several filter capacitors inside the power supply that are defective and /or are changing value. this accounts for the high pitch squeel you are hearing...the only REAL way to test for these problems are with an esr meter or lcr bridge, but you can physically look at the capacitors and see if any of them are bulged up or leaking., my suggestion is to go to tigerdirect.com and get another 450W or better PS...they are pretty cheap there

I was using my Monster Power PowerCenter PC 800 power surge protector. My tv was running off it, Xbox360, and I had an iron plugged in too. All of the sudden it shut everything off and had a high pitch...


You have to open it up. Check for busted fuse, or a burnt
part. Your Power Center PC800 just experienced an overload. It could have blown an internal fuse at the least
and a burnt out part at its worst.

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 . . .

Antec sp-500 power up?


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.
