|My computer is randomly turning itself off. I have surge protection disabled at the moment to type this message because it would literally, load up then shut off.|
I went to my BIOS, and enabled surge support. Then the next time it happened this message came up after it booted up again:
POWER SUPPLY SURGES DETECTED. ANTI SURGE WAS TRIGGERED TO PROTECT SYSTEM FROM UNSTABLE POWER SUPPLY UNIT.
PRESS F1 TO RUN SETUP.
These are the specs of my PC (according to Speccy):
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
AMD A8-5600K 63 °C
Trinity 32nm Technology
4.00 GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 809MHz (9-9-10-24)
ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. F2A55-M LK (FM2 )
Generic Non-PnP Monitor (1024x768@60Hz)
AMD Radeon HD 7560D
932GB Hitachi HDS721010CLA332 ATA Device (SATA) 29 °C
932GB SAMSUNG HD103UJ ATA Device (SATA) 23 °C
MagicISO Virtual DVD-ROM0000
ATAPI iHAS124 B ATA Device
High Definition Audio Device
My PSU is ATX-500 (500w)
The voltage readings according to my BIOS show:
3.3v - 3.344v
5v - 5.215v
12v - 12.002v
Now, is this a case of the PSU being faulty and therefore needs to be replaced, or is there a way of altering the PSU voltage?
