The PSU is rated 300W. I have an AMD Athlon X2 processor, 1 hard disk, 1 DVD writer and on board graphics card on an ASUS MVN DVI motherboard. Is the PSU underrated?
I understand your system isn't a powerhouse and a 300W psu is probably all that's required.
But as i've already said chances are the psu is about to give up the ghost.
Why risk your other components for the sake of a troublesome psu?
Plus use lubricating/bearing oil not kerosene if you're too cheap to replace the fan or psu.
