My PC’s power supply ‘exploded’ last night. Saw some spark and a loud ‘bang’ when I tried to turn on the power. After that, I couldn’t on the PC.
It was about time. The power supply box has been with me for roughly 4 years already. It has been overworking ever since I bought it home. Lately, there are some noise whenever I turn on my PC.
Went to West Mall to buy a new power supply. Can only find 450W power supply. I have no need for 450W. My current power supply is 400W and its more than enough. But well, have no choice but to get the more powerful and expensive power supply.
Tried to connect the power supply to the motherboard to confirm if it is working. Luckily the little ‘explosion’ last night only affect the power supply. All the remaining parts are still in working condition. Else I’ll have to spend more money on repair. Or perhaps I’ll just dump the PC and get myself a iMac. 😀
Once I confirm that everything is working, I started unscrewing the old power supply box and put in the new power supply box. The new power supply box stands out inside my CPU as all the other parts look old and dusty.
The new power supply is much quieter than the old 1.
Think that black mark there is the result from the ‘explosion’.
So its goodbye to the old power supply.
If electricity is the blood of a PC, then my PC has just undergone a heart transplant operation.
