  1. Hard to say might be a short in your system or just that you got a bad one that just vent by itself. What was the replacement PSU?

    Hi

    It was shark technology

    Connector Summary
    1x 24pin Main Power Connector,
    1x P4 4pin Power Connector,
    1x Floppy Drive Power Connector.
    3x SATA Power Connectors (on 2 seperate line of cables to reach drives located in various part of the case)
    4x Peripheral Power Connectors for IDE drives or case fans.


    Complies with INTEL® ATX 12V standard
    Super Silence Technology provides best solution for fan noise and heat
    High efficiency output
    One 12VDC 120mm low-RPM fan
    Output short circuit protection (except +5VSB)
    Output over voltage protection
    Output over wattage protection (620W)
    Manual power shut down rocker switch

    I am just wondering if the motherboard has diabled the new power supply?

    Many thanks
  3. That's a very generic brand of PSU's.

    Can be but it is a low quality PSU that could have died by itself. Quality PSU's have internal protection so they will not turn on for example if there is a motherboard short.

  9. Corsair, Antec, Enermax, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling are all few of the well known quality brands.
