So I got a graphics card and a new psu for xmas.
thankfully I decided to install the PSU and make sure it works separately
Old PSU: OCZ Stealthstream 600w
New PSU: Corsair TX 850w
Problem: Windows doesn't start!
Details of my own analysis:
Fizzing or sound comes from the PSU. Then there is a click. And then I think the HDD cuts out and restarts (in mid startup. Ergo, windows freezes and doesn't start)
Note: Old PSU works fine. However it makes the same fizzing sounds when my CPU goes under load! but still works fine.
Rubbish PSU, or a connection isn't in properly.
But if my old PSU makes the same sounds and that one cuts out? AND I've double checked all connections.
Steps taken so far:
-Loaded failsafe defaults through Bios
-Ran windows Error Recovery
-Tried both PSUs
-Posted this thread using PC with old PSU.
