My computer went blank when turning it on


1) Computer isn't working, due to the Processor isn't working, due to a bad Power Supply.
Weak voltage power rail.

Enough power perhaps to light LED lights, and maybe spin fans, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

Computer Power Supply's are rated in Wattage.
Volts times Amperes = Watts.
(Average computer power supply in a fairly new computer, is rated at around 300 Watts)

A) ALL of the LED lights combined, use less than 1 Watt of power.
B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
C) A typical Processor may use 51 to 125 Watts.
Depends on what Processor it is.

Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail, can have enough power to light LED lights, spin fans, but not enough to turn the Processor on.

Solution?
Test the voltages of the Power Supply,

Or, use a KNOWN to be good Power Supply, that has the correct amount of power cables, the right kind of power cables, the correct size, and shape of the case, and enough Wattage, for a test unit..

A bad Power Supply is one of the leading causes of computer failure.

Describe your Black & Decker Power To


No. You will need typically 35-40 watts for a LCD monitor. 20 watt may not even run DVD's on your laptop. Look for something 80 watt or so.

Do I upgrade my Power Supply


A new power supplu can't hurt anything so long as it's right for your Dell. Some Dells with ATX power connectors are wired in a propiretary way. Make sure which way yours is wired before making the buy.

SuperMicro H8DCE-O R Motherboard no video


did you plug up toe power to the video card, the problem seems to be that the video card is getting no power, if the power is hooked up properly to the video card, the your power supply is probably not powerful enough.

7800 gt vs 7600 gt ,,on price,,,perfomance


currently these cards are both priced a bit high for how they perform, i suggest a 8600 gt if your on a budget and using low resolution. but i highly reccomend the 8800gt or 9800 gt. if those are too much try out a 9600 gso, 8800gs or 9600gt. mjake sure your power supply can handle these cards i reccomend 25 or more amps on the +12v rail. if power is a issue check out the ati hd 4670 great bang for the buck card and it consumes less power.

How much watts of power do i have?


the 9600GSO uses arounf 250 watts under load. While I cannot fing exact spec for the HP PSU I would be surprised if it were more that 350W. Is there any indication on the case or can you open the case up and look at the PSU?

9600 GSO Power

You need somthing in the order of 450W or greater. Get an Enermax, Corsair or other good quality PSU.
