Desktop Power Supply Repair & Upgrades

Common Symptoms of Power Supply Issues

It happens to the best of us. We’re working on a project or gaming and our computer just shuts down. You try to turn it back on and nothing happens. The likely culprit, in most cases, is your power supply. Desktop power supply units (PSUs) are an important, but often overlooked, part of a computer system. They provide electrical power to the motherboard, graphics card, hard drive, and other system components, and too often people take them for granted until they fail. A PSU failure can be caused by many factors, from overloading to old age, and it can easily take down the entire computer system if not handled properly.

How To Troubleshoot Power Supply Issues at Home

Before considering a power supply repair or upgrade, you can try some troubleshooting steps at home. First, check if the power cable is securely connected and the power outlet is functioning. Try a different power cable or outlet to rule out external issues. If your computer still doesn’t power on, inspect the PSU for any visible damage or burnt smell, which can indicate a failure. If these steps do not resolve the issue, it might be time to consider professional help.
