xilinnz Posted August 27, 2008 Share Posted August 27, 2008 I had the Corsair VX550W power supply since half a year ago but haven't really used it because my old one worked again so I didn't bother using this one yet. Recently, I ordered parts to make a new system and wanted to use this PSU. I have the corsair 2gig ram, intel Q6600 processor, xFx 8800GT video card, asus p5k-e wifi mobo. Everything was hooked up. I hit the power and the fans go on for a second, then everything would go right off. The light on the mobo is green. I tried doing the PSU test with the paperclip and the PSU hooked up to one of my case fans but when I hit the switch on the PSU, the fans would go on for a second then it goes off again. (sometimes I have to jiggle the paperclip a bit) Before I did the PSU test, I RMA-ed the mobo but the same problem occurs so I'm thinking its a PSU problem. Is there anything else I can do at home before I bring it to a computer place to test it out? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
