Problem with powering on my system


Sekko

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

I have a problems powering on my system since I installed my new Corsair HW520 PS.

 

When my system is turned off for longer then 5 minutes an I press the powerbutton nothing happens. When I press it an second time right after the first try my system turns on.

 

My system turns also on when I hold the powerbutton a little bit longer pressed (aprox. 2 seconds) after releasing it.

 

My old PS had no problmes like this! :-(

 

Is this normal for the Corsair PS (is it overpowered ;-) ) or is it a reason for a RMA?

 

Thx for help!

Before you RMA it, please try the latest BIOS for your motherboard. Your board is an A7N8X, right? That's a bit older and was made before the latest ATX 2.01 spec was finalized, so it's possible they fixed any compatibility issues in a later BIOS release.
