Hello

When trying to turn on my computer with one of my power supplies installed it will not turn on but with my other power supply it will.

I have done the paper clip test and the PSU does turn on but the fan is very loud. this confused me and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

I have ordered a new power supply anyway because its time for an upgrade but i would still like to get this one working so while i wait for my new PSU to come i can still use my computer or incase i need a spare PSU for the future.

 

PC Specs:

CPU- i7 4790

Botherboard- Gigabyte b85m-d3h

GPU- XFX R9 390 

Power Supply- Areo Cool 600w

The other power supply is a corsair 750w 80+

This was my spare PSU but this one smells burning now, hence the new PSU being ordered.

I know the problem is the areo cool PSU but i cannot find out what the problem is with it.and i have tried plugging in and un plugging my psu multiple times

My guess would be something fried if it smells ExTrA Crisp. Kernel can make good chicken but doesn't do well with computers. My only other guess with it is maybe a surge happened. BTW you should have surge protectors, even on your ethernet. Protection my friend, this can protect you from long term problems down the road.

The PSU literally is the issue. Stop trying to making it work: it's crap.

Disassemble it, get a soldering iron, and replace whatever has failed in it. That's dangerous and you seriously need to know what you're doing for it to have a good outcome.

 

Just don't use it and use your phone/laptop/tablet or whatever else you may have. It doesn't work anymore.

Try booting your pc without the GPU installed. That GPU uses alot of power so it might be crashing the PSU

No.

 

A 600 watt power supply is enough for an r9 390, and PSUs don't crash, they overheat, burn up, or short out. We've already established that his PSU is the problem.

No, not 'A 600W' PSU.

A good quality 600W PSU with DC-DC.

 

Though even a 500W is enough, if it is a  decent one and has the needed connectors.
