I wonder if anyone can help me,. im going quite mad over this - it truely has sent me insane, heres the details
I have a motherboard which i used to use in a system - this is a ASUS- p5rd1-v deluxe, It always worked fine - ut i stopped using it because my psu wasnt good enough torun the system stable
I recently got hold of a hiper 580w modular PSU which i thought would run my system nicely.
Connecting this psu up gave me no power at all
This confused me a little and made me think that the psu i had purchased didnt work - so i got a old psu (crappy 400w unit - and hooked it up to my machine - everything worked fine
At this point i thought i might have a faulty psu - so i got a old machine out (based on a qdi superb 4le chipset - hooked the new PSU up (hiper) and everything worked all ok
This confused me a little - so i got the asus motherboard and removed it from the case - hooked up the hiper psu - still no power.........however
I did notice that the sb_pwr (a power light on the mobo) was flickering - most people see to think that this is a problem with the +5v feed........
My question is really this - how can a psu power 1 machine - but not another. I have treid all sorts of things on the asus motherboard - from reseting cmos etc - but i get just a flickering light - no fans or nothing else
I could send the psu back (i purchased it from a forum) but ideally i want it to work
