Okay, it says your 12V is only 8V.

Do you have access to a digital multimeter? Its the most accurate for voltages, but i think the psu is under powered at boot. So while it can barely run the system, it drops to low on first boot.

Thats a great test. If theres no issues then you almost 100%.

I bet not being in a High tech population like N.A is fustrating for finding near by testing stuff.

Only if you also take your psu and nothing happens.

your plan will test the psu/gpu power issue. I think that your power supply is dying, and not really the psu type as a whole.

The fact that everst shows 8.6V on the 12 is worrisome. Hence why you should also get a multimeter to test the real number.

hmm strange thign is my PC started normally today and yes i do have the PSU like for two years of intense gaming with minimum of 8 hours of daily power usage.

and it is also a lot of dust in my PC after like a half a month ... but nevertheless i deffinetly think it's the PSU problem now ...

yha it sounds like it. Every electronics has its good days and bad days.

If its suspect, you really might want to replace it so as to protect the other parts incase the psu pops and shocks the rest of your parts.

Power supplies usually are only like 2 widths... I can't see the 2 cases not being very simular.

hmm i think i found a solution to my problem .... you know usually when i start my PC i start the monitor first then the PC .... and now i did it other way PC first then monitor and it works ... so i think the PSU doesnt have the capacity to power up them simutaneously ... that is the problem ... forgive me if I am wrong but i do not have university degree in IT

and so i decided to go for EVOLVE Pulse 450 W that should be enough
