I have an ULTRA PSU and i thought it was damaged, but i put it on my older p4 1.4ghz, and it boots right up. I have an asus p4c800-e deluxe, and here is what happens:
I hook the psu up, turn on the power....nothing happens. the little light on my board is lit up, so i know its getting power....
i get no post beeps, the monitor dont wake up, nothing....so i shut it down
The psu powers everything in the case, including all my fans, HDD's, etc....
it just dont boot.....
now heres the strange part.
when i swap it out with my older PSU, my pc boots up and says "overclock failed" "press F1 to run setup or F2 to load defaults"
pressing F1 takes me to the bios.
Does my board think that this PSU is an overclock attempt, or is their a component in my pc that has down syndrome?
this PSU runs my old PC with a radeon 7000 32mb card (it has an Intel D850GB mobo)
so this must be mobo related, but what can it be?
i know you guys can help, cuz you guys are S.M.R.T.......i mean S.M.A.R.T
I know you prolly need more info, but i dont know what youll want to know till you tell me. thanks
