power supply

10 posts in this topic

Ok, so I bought alllll my parts to my new PC, and I just finished putting it al together.

My new powmax 300W+300W power supply is giving me two red lights in the back, with a long series of beeps. The box claims that this means the PSU is on Stand By, or is Down. How can I fix this? The only reason I'm not posting my specs is because I'm not sure that its necessary.

Are you sure the beeps aren't coming from the motherboard instead?

Count how many beeps there are and how long they last. This signifies the problem, if they are from the mobo. PSU possibly the same, but not seen those.

I'm 100% positive there coming from the PSU, it says it comes with that feature on the box.

Theres about 3 beeps per second, and they dont stop. All in the same tone, although the first beep is not. Still have no idea how to get it out of standby, and there customer support is horrid. Just trying to get this PC going :/

Does the manual or official web site tell you if this beep sequence means anything in particular?

As I said in my first post, all they say is that this indicates 'StandBy' or 'Down'. The don't tell you the cause of this, a solution to fixing this, or anything else on this problem.

Do you have the voltage set correctly?? Are all fuses good (may have one on the inside)??

Voltage is set at 150, which I beleive is right for the US.

I'm not sure about the fuses, how could I check? I was told never to open your PSU

Does the pSU box just mention lights or lights and beeps?

Also, try unplugging all peripheral from the mtoherboard except for the ram. As in take out the graphics card, the soundcard, unplug the hard drives from themotherboard and power supply and see what happens when you boot it then.

It talks about lights and beeps, I posted in the red light/long beep combo in an earlier post.

Ill give what you said a try a little later tonight, I'm going to try and install my old 450W PSU tonight as well.
