He installed windows and after 7 minutes of running, the psu makes a "tet tet" with 1 second intervals. For each "tet" the ceiling lights dim.
what is wrong?
*help me please*
there are a few possible things.. THe computer Could need a Power conditioner to smooth out the Power to it and lessen the stress on it.
the PSU is switched to 220 Volt rather than 110.
