Question about XION PowerReal 600 (XON600F14T201) 600-Watt Power Supply
My computer powered down while I was in the middle using it and would not power back on agian. There was no movement around the computer and I checked all of the connections out side of the case. This system has worked with out error for 4 months.
Your power supply may have failed. Such failure is common, especially with the low quality supplies used in some machines these days. Sometimes this is due to the failure of the fan inside the supply, which causes overheating, and eventual component failure (especially of the electrolytic capacitors). If you have a voltmeter available, you can check for the presence of voltages on the cabling which connects to the computer motherboard, drives etc.
Google for the proper pinout specifications- the cabling has colored wiring.
Have the computer plugged in- first check for the standby voltage- a +5 volt line which powers a small circuit on the motherboard. If this is missing, your machine will not power up at all. If present, then press the ON button, and check for voltages on the red and yellow wires. On the red +5 volts, yellow +12. These should be very close to those exact readings. If more than a few tenths of a volt off (esp. the +5), then the supply is bad also.

I have a bit of an extrapolation on a similar problem. I've got a hercules 500w max power supply on my geforce 6100 sm-m mother board and it died suddenly during use. I went to power it back on and it powered up the fans, but not the hard drives or graphics card, so I shut it down from the swith on the supply, waited a minute, flipped it back on, and... now the blue light for the power switch on the tower doesnt light up, but the restart button light does and the fans power up in the case and on the processor and all, but not the hard drives and still no signal from graphics card either. I looked in the hercules and I dont see any clearly (by eye) popped caps. would you still go down the road of bad supply knowing the hercules is problematic, or would you think maybe cmos battery?
any help would be very much appreciated, thanks guys
