Big Problem with my HX1000W


Hernan_F

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have an HX1000W.

When I power on: It ignites for 3 seconds and then

it dies out... continuously!!!

 

I have made the test of the paperclip,

it seems good because the fan of the power supply runs correctly.

 

What can I do to know & to test

before requesting an RMA?

 

Thanks for your help

Could be something in your system overloading the PSU, and it's shutting itself down because of safety protocols. Disconnect everything from the PSU and motherboard except for the power connections and memory. See what happens.

Yes, I have made some differents tests connecting the minimum cables

to the power supply... always the same!

It reboots continously...!

 

I have 2 computers,

with same motherboards, same ammount of memory,

same 3 hard drives, and a like-same video card.

Both have an HX1000W power supply.

 

The first computer, runs perfectly.

The second one, not!

Sounds like both PSUs are detecting a short from the system. You might want to pull out the motherboard and place it on a non-conductive surface and test it again with just CPU w/heatsink fan, RAM, and video card. If the system does power up and stay up, then install one component at a time.

yea it sounds like you have a problem with your system if more than that one psu causes the same faults.

Ram Guy & rogue71,

I have remplaced my power supply
