Is This The Power Supply That Has Blown?


Today, in the shop, the guy DID get the motherboard running. Quick start-up followed by complete power off. Every supply I’ve opened has contained a fuse. All read 0.00, both before, during and after I turn on the power button. Source

How much is your time worth to you? But I dont want to go buy pieces of hardware if i am wrong...... You took meter readings that say nothing useful because you assumed rather than read what was posted. It correctly reports the memory. https://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/hardware/threads/23877/can-a-blown-power-supply-fried-motherboard

Psu Fuse Blown

Good brand PSU's arent a performance investment, its a SAFETY investment. Some are mounted in spring clip holders on the circuit board inside the supply as shown in Figure A. Don't let these naysayers sap your curiosity TheOnlyCoolTim, or you will have to spend $5 on a new nic 'OneofManyLameTims'... that is the point.

Power Supply Popped And Sparked That test determines where a failure is on the left side (motherboard) or right side (PSU or its AC power connection). In going back to run more tests, I discovered that the box of my chassis is not conductive (due to the paint?) and therefore I had no ground before. Turning on the power switch resulted in no fan.Unfortunately I didn't have (and don't have) a meter to provide the numbers.

Only then can a reply discuss the entire power system.[ What were you going to do without first reading each sentence as posted - without requesting instructions? http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/what-damage-can-a-blown-psu-do.42332/ This is a total nightmare for me, and I'm starting to think I must have been mad to think I could ever make a working PC in the first place!

If a person is willing to repair, then hopefully they're capable of following what's needed. And since all the drives, memory, cards etc were still inserted in the motherboard, presumably this means they aren't guilty of causing a short? have a peek here Paper clip is now ordering PSU on (as the power controller once did).

Nothing So I am wondering if it it were the power supply hat I heard go? Fried Psu Symptoms I cracked it open (I know, but it was about 4 years old anyway, and I lost the warranty), and no capacitors seemed blown. I'm at a complete loss what to do.

You'll delaminate the PCB.) Above all, ensure you respect the polarization of the original caps.

Had something strange happen to me this summer. When push came to shove and it died, I refused to rebuild it, or serivce it. But I do hope to do more upgrading in the future (if I ever, ever get this PC to work again!), so I'm considering buying a 600W supply.

Shouldn't cost more than about $10 for all of them, although you'll find some of them tough to get ahold of. I am very perplexed though. I did the paper-clip test and nothing. If any formally attached device was defective, then the 5 volts should rise (or at minimum rise for only a second).

Once voltage drops below certain specs, current goes up to compensate, and that generally fries stuff.
