Had a power outage last week. Took forever for the computer to boot up. SYSTEM was using 98 to 99% usage. I decided it was the power supply. Tested it, it was bad. Bought a new one, installed it, same thing. Brought it back, they tested it, no good. I asked myself what are the odds. Exchanged it for another one, had it tested before I went home, it was good. Got home, installed it and guess what, same thing. The computer still partially runs, 12v is around 8v, but all other voltages are 0v.
Is it possible that my motherboard is killing power supplies? Any other ideas? SYSTEM usage still at 98 to 99%.
