Default half power problems

for the 2nd time, my computer did the thing where 1/2 the devices do not recieve power.

all the case fans, opticals, and HDDs did nothing on boot, and the computer found nothing to boot to.

i originally thought this could have been a dodgy molex, but seeing as the HDDs didn't have power, (sata) then the problem seems to be from within the PSU itself.

i think i am going to have to buy a new one.... what do you guys think?

Well I think the same and if it's the second time that this happens you should buy an AVR(Auto Voltage Regulator) to help prevent another PSU to damage.
