HW Info

Ok mate I shall leave it with you I am only going on what Scott Mueller states and what common sense dictates. I have no idea why your machine is still performing as it is in theory it shouldn't but maybe I should just duck out now as I was only trying to offer some ideas of causation for your issues.

As for maintaining those rail voltages that is the purpose of the internal circuitry built into the PSU and if the voltages are as they are in your PSU then in my mind there are components/circuitry that are/is malfunctioning. That is to say in simple language it changes a high voltage low current input into the high current low voltage output required by the computer internal components. If you read the Power Good signal part of that link it explains what happens when the rail voltages are wrong - it should in theory stop the machine (CPU) from booting.

As I said earlier voltages within a machine especially these days are critical in how a component like the CPU operates ie raise the voltage by a decimal point or two and the frequency at which it operates follows suit that is how as you will know overclocking works (in a nutshell).
All I am going to say is that if it were me I would be swapping that unit out because it is non adjustable and would inevitably cost more to fix than buy a new one - if it was worth fixing or could be fixed at all.

One last thing about that device is that because very high voltages are induced to get the high current out of the PSU at a low voltage makes any handling of that device extremely dangerous. In other words it can act like a defibrillator we use at work where the device is used to stop the heart in the hope that it may return to a normal rhythm.

Best stick with the others I think as I work by eliminating possible causes starting at the first component that a machine cannot possibly operate without and work my way up - where some can pick a particular causation. You see I do this for a hobby and am not a technician or do I have the inside knowledge of particularly software / coding issues.

Good luck with the machine I hope it turns out to be something that is easily fixed.

Good spot John
The utility you posted was not a hot link where exactly do you download it from ?
A search showed way too many places to download it from
One looked like the developers site :/
Could you post a hot link ?
Thanks
Cheers.

Yep that is the one Ken and this is what you look for - if I can get the pic to attach _- I did a long post only for IE to crash on me.

Greta it did and if you want to use PART B: of my ditty you can get VERY detailed info on any of the other components. I have to duck out for a whiiel but I shall answer the OP when I get back.

Thanks yep I found the download link
Kept warning about a couple sensors so I closed it and uninstalled
Not sure if it was disabling it's own sensors or what

Thanks. I really do appreciated the effort. Before changing anything though I think I will resort to a complete reinstall of Windows 7 see if that could possibly solve anything.

Ken don't give up on probably one of the best info programs there is, as I have been using it now for the last three years on all my machines and it really does give you a lot of info on components that even the manufacturers leave out and do explain problems and issues. I will admit sometimes it installs with a few niggling problems and you just need to redo it. It's your choice though
See my pics I couldn't earlier because out broadband at home was flipping in and out. These are just three you have seen the PSU readout one I find finding the volts frequencies manufacturers etc more than helpful.

No problems just hope all goes well and if not then you might just think about swapping out that PSU.

The issue I've had with V5.06 is that it still thinks it's not installed and pops up an "upgrade to 5.06" box every time I Run it I dismiss the dialog and it works fine so no real issue

Yep mate it has done that ever since I started using it and I am on that forum so I'll ask what the go is. I think because the fellow who "made" this program has done a fantastic job and I am guessing too without much a of a budget.
