Power Supply Bad? Serious help Please!


Recommended Posts

Ok guys you are the best but you probably already know that :)


I have a major problem!


I have two corsair 3200 sticks as you can see in tech spec.

The problem I have is when I turn off the computer and then try to turn it on again.

The phreaking beast to computer will not start. I press the power on button and I press the button until my fingers bleed.

Ok so the next move was to take out one memory stick and try,

*Wapsi it worked to start up the computer without any problems!


Ok so the situation is whenever I put in the second stick, the computer refuses to start (sometimes it will, but rarely).

It doesn't matter which stick I have put in first, whenever it's two sticks, the computer won't start.

I tried all the combinations with having one stick on the first orange slot and then put in the second on the last orange slot.

Same with the yellow, I even tried to put one stick on the orange and then tried to put it in on a yellow ones still didn't work.


So thought the memories was bad but we tried them on another computer and they work fine together and also in the memtest86+.

We tried them on the same motherboard and same powersupply as I have.


Ok so I thought hey there is not enough power because I connected the graphic card and the motherboard on the same powercable.

Tried that and still the same problem.


I've posted before about my memory problem:



Please help me :)

Please set the Dim Voltage to 2.6 volts and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, and then test the module/modules one at a time with www.memtest.org! If you still get errors, please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it! However, if you get errors with both modules that would suggest some other problem and I would test them in another system or MB to be sure.

I tried with a friends computer yesterday, and we found out that it\s the Psu that is a wreck. He's got the same psu and it worked prefectly with my mashine... I mean the computer starts from time to time... but with his it starts every time... So I will do some more testing with different parts..


Thanks a lot guys!
