That means your power supply failure. For different voltage, is provide power for different hardware component, so it doesnt matter if 5V and 12V is stable, your computer will still reboot when 3.3V is too low. +3.3V: PCI device、mainboard、agp display(legacy) +5V: HDD、DVD rom drive、floppy drive(legacy)、PCI device、USB/firewire/KB/mouse、mainboard、ram、agp ...

This would be an impossible task, power consumption can vary wildly dependent on system load and power saving settings. For instance on my workstation, when idle it uses ~300 watts, and ~900 watts under load according to my APC SmartUPS. Although a laptop would be less extreme when comparing absolute numbers, relatively it would still be significant between ...

Your power supply doesn't have the extra GPU plug because it wasn't designed to power a card like that. At max load a stock-clock 1070 will consume over 160 watts, meaning you've got 300 left for the rest of your machine - this is almost certainly not enough at all for a gaming machine (I am assuming you are gaming because you have a 1070). If you've got a ...

"Universal Power Supply" simply means that the power supply will work on any mains system, from 100 to 240 V and 50 or 60 Hz. In essence, the adapter will work on the mains power of any country. The output voltage of the supply isn't specified. It's best to call Lexmark customer service at 1 (800) LEXMARK (539-6275) (I'm assuming you're in the US, ...

The most relevant norm is the RU (rack units). This is respected by all server PSUs. An 2U PSU will never fit physically in the position of a 1U PSU. Weight is not relevant. X x Y are usually 225-230 x 100 while Z is the size RU-related.

Have a look at the Win32_PowerMeter WMI class located in the root\CIMV2\power namespace. This namespace has lot of other classes and events related to power management and profiles. For an example of using this class, see the open-source pwrdrain-gadget gadget (uses an ActiveX object). For VBScript examples see this. For C# examples see this.

I am going to assume that the lantern device is charged via USB. Your #1 is correct. Your #2 is correct. Your #3, is yes. Since the lantern charges via USB it should support the standard USB charging specification and should not require the SMART feature. If there is such a device out there that cannot charge via the standard USB specification, then such ...

You have either Dis-lodged or Broken the ribbon connector. You need to get either the connection fixed or replace the connector. Below is what the connector looks like. Bring it to someone who knows what they are doing or you could potentially ruin your laptop. If you want to learn how to fix it, ask them if you can view it being fixed, but I would not ...

The PCI-E related VRMs (circuits regulating exact voltage) or other circuits related to PCI-E on the MB may be damaged. It rarely happens, but it can. That can cause video cards to be overpowered and therefore take damage. Assuming there's no overcloking that can affect PCI-E in the BIOS, and since you changed the PSU, your best bet is to get a junk video ...

I actually have an HP ProDesk 600 G1 and I am working on replacing the original HP custom power supply with an 500W ATX one (folowing the thread What is the 6-pin power connector on an HP ProDesk?) and fitting everything into a Fractal Design R4 case (done) I bought an Asus GTX970 so since the lanes are connected to the CPU, I am hoping to play Witcher 3 ...
