Default Abnormality

Ok, i was just talking to someone about this screenshot and he was confused as to why only one fan is working and why the PSU voltages are way off (or something along those lines)



Reassure me, my PC aint about to explode is it?

it won't explode, AMD doensn't put gunpowder in the CPU.. it'll just silently turn off and then will smell bad and then you'll cry cuz you have to throw it away or give it to your dog... or cat...

So my PSU is underperforming thus buggering everything else? And if i get a new PSU (like 500W Antec) everything will be back to normal and all?

My PSU is ATX 400W

How do you know this is the problem? Is there something wrong with the voltages over Speedfan?

We have the same hard drives lol. Your HD is overheating, I believe. My HD runs about 30C. Also, why aren;t your fans maxxed out?
