    evga 430w

    hi everyone, been a while since I last posted. gf's computer has stopped powering on, I suspect its the power supply and I've order a jump start adapter off the 'bay to test it, should be here by monday at the latest. but looking into replacements and I seen this for 30 quid at a competitors so thinking of going for that. is it a good unit? want it to last the useful life of the computer this time. its powering a celeron and a gt 8600 so not drawing a lot of power.

    yeah its either the board or psu but im getting absolutely nothing from the pc so im banking on it being the psu. I should now when I get this adapter in a few days time to jump start the psu, if it turns on its a motherboard issue, if not then the psu is dead.

    Some motherboards have those kinds of problems, ME, and they are generally referred to as 'cold boot' problems. If it's not the PSU it's almost certainly the board. You may be able to fix it with some changes to BIOS settings, or a BIOS update (always a last resort).

    To answer the original question, the EVGA 430 seems to be made by an OEM called HEC which I don't really know anything much about. Personally I'd spend a little more for one of the low end XFX PSUs which are based on Seasonic units, and therefore made of win, but if you wanted to save a little money the EVGA would probably do the job.

    Have you tried turning the computer off at the mains?

    One of my PCs is exhibiting truly odd behaviour.

    If I power it down, it does the usual thing. Just stops.

    But if I press the power button on the PC, or use Wake on Lan, all the fans start, but the PC does not boot.

    It will boot if I turn off the power switch for 10 seconds, and then turn it on and use the power button.

    It isn't the PSU. I tried two.
