today i was playing need for speed on my day off, when all of a sudden my computer just shuts off. I try another power supply and it works but it is only 110 watts so i couldnt hook up any drives or that one would stop working too.
So i went out and got a new one, a 400w enermax with dual fans. I thought it was all good and i wouldnt have anymore problems. Well i look at the dashboard in motehrbaord monitor and it says my -12.00voltage is running -3.61, and -5.00voltage is 0.00v.
Are these normal. i assumed they were only for p4 boards (the accessory connector with the 4 pins).
Now just about 10 minutes ago it shutdown again. (not blue screens or anything, just turned off) I unplugged the psu for a while then plugged it in and it started up and i went right to this site.
What do you guys think is wrong? my old psu i couldnt get to work at all, but this one just unplugged and plugged back in and now it works. wierd problem and i hope it doesnt happen to me again.
