Dead Tired Posted December 9, 2010 Share Posted December 9, 2010 Hi, my brother's power supply started throwing out errors on his temp/voltage monitoring software. It was saying his 3.3v was dipping too low, usually when he tried playing games. I suggested he get a TX650 since he was thinking about getting a new system early next year and could use something beefier than what he had. I helped him pull the old PS out and we dropped in his new one. The system booted up to bios but said it didn't see a boot device. I noticed it saw the DVD drive but it wouldn't see the HD. We put back in the old PS and everything booted up fine. The system saw the HD and DVD. I shrugged and said we probably didn't have the power cable fully seated originally or have the IDE cable pushed in all the way. We put the TX650 back in and turned everything back on but same deal. CPU/fan starts up, Bios starts up but doesn't see the HD. I'm going to try the paper clip test when I see him Thursday night but does anybody have any suggestions before I go back over there?
