Power Supply Troubleshooting
I have a question. My pc is dead, so I thought that I'd start troubleshooting a few things, starting with the power supply unit using a voltmeter. And I noticed that all of my yellow pins show 11,2V instead of 12V as recommended in every single pin chart out there. Plus, 11,2V happens to be outside of the +/- 5% tolerance range.
However, before I buy a new power supply unit because of 0,8V (or taking the tolerance range into account 0,2V) I thought I better ask you first if this could be really the problem (checking the PSU using a 2nd pc is unfortunately not an option as I do not have 2 pcs...unless you can do that also with a laptop, which, in my humble opinion isn't possible, or is it?)
So, what do you think, is it my PSU, or not?
Any ideas are appreciated.
