Hi All,

After the sucess of fixing a reluctant display, I’m now presented with a PC power supply that’s decided to throw in the towel.

Said PSU is about 5years old, and thanks to MS patch tuesday forcing a reboot of the computer, it then failed to start, the case power LED blinks once, whilst the internal fans spin for about half a second, then a faint click, and it goes dead.  A short while (20/30 sec) later, it tries again, with the same results.[br]


Sounds like the PSU is attempting to fire up, but isn’t getting there somehow.

Pulled it out, popped the lid on the PSU hoping to find some easy to replace capacitors bulging a bit, only to find everyhing looks as it shoud (bar the dust):[br]

Any thoughts as to any avenues I can follow regarding testing before I can it and buy a replacement?

Cheers
