computer problem

satsworld

Broken In
My new set up is only 3 months old.
gigabyte z68xp-ud3
i5 2500k
gskill ripjaws 1600 mhz 4gbX2
gtx 550 ti 1 gb(zotac)
corsair gs700
Where i live,power cut is a very frequent problem.And as i have an inverter of 800W so i didn't consider buying ups right with the set up. But my inverter was not able to take the load and the pc restarts after every power cuts. So i was considering buying a new ups. But now a few days earlier it just shut down abruptly(no power cut at that point) and won't start after that . when switched on and i press the start button in the front of the case,nothing happens. it shows no sign of electricity. nothing turns on... neither the psu nor the lights on the motherboard. and after about 30 hours or so... it again worked like a charm. And now I am having that problem again... so please guys help me out.. its very urgent....:-(:-(:-(

Re: Help me out pleaseeeeee.......

first disconnect all cables. check the motherboard for jumpers. all should be correctly connected.then reconnect only the motherboard power cables. and check. if it works fine then no issues. it would be a loose connection issue. if not then borrow a friends SMPS and check.

I think the problem is for psu as nothing powers up.... nothing..

Do you think it is for damage due to frequent power cuts and abrupt shutdowns??

Re: Help me out pleaseeeeee.......

Hello satsworld.

The PSU you are using is perfectly ok. Your problem lies with the mode the Inverter is running.
There are two modes in every inverter:
1. W-UPS mode.
2. UPS mode.

By default the mode selector switch is being set to W-UPS mode which causes PC to restart at every power-cut. Change the mode to UPS mode to avoid your problem.

But I should also warn you about the fact that running inverter in UPS mode cause it to go in backup mode if voltage falls below 185V at anytime.

The next day(yesterday) when i started playing, it again went off and no response from since...

Re: Help me out pleaseeeeee.......

Corsair (i.e. kaizenin) don't repair anything, they replace the product.
@OP: Just RMA the PSU, you will get a new one which should work without any problem.

You have done it wrong. Instead of giving it back to supreme you should have submitted it to Keizen.

first detach all cords. examine the mother board for jumpers. all should be properly linked.then reunite only the mother board power cords. and examine. if it performs excellent then no problems. it would be a reduce relationship problem. if not then lend a buddies SMPS and examine.
