Broken Power Supply?
I just got done sleeving a wire for the first time. I sleeved a fan, and to make sure it worked I connected it to an old power supply from an HP computer. When I plugged the power supply in the fan ran fine initially. But after about 40seconds the fan started pulsating in RPMs, I looked at the power supply and saw that the green led indicator for it was flickering. I unplugged the power supply and the flickering continued for about 5 seconds, along with the fan having pulsating RPMs.
I have used this power supply a few times to test fans, the most recent being about 25 days ago.
Do you think something is wrong with the power supply?
could I have messed up the wires for the fan (melting is only possibility) and that caused the power supply to mess up?
I would prefer not to buy a new PSU since I was planning on putting this one back into an older HP computer (3 years old) and using it.
Build to be updated, a reminder to myself.
