Hi there,


Today I managed to blow my PSU, so I replaced it. However when I turn on my pc I get a screen saying "powersupply surges detected during the previous power on this may be due to a faulty power supply unit" or something a long those lines. I got arround it by turning off the Asus surge protection feature in the UEFI/Bios. I am quite sure there is nothing wrong with the new power supply unit and I have checked all plugs etc.


Question is: Is this something I should re-enable and am I putting my pc in danger but not having it enabled? I was thinking of properly resetting my MoBo in hopes that that would get rid of the error screen on start up.

Any thoughts?


Thanks in advance.

Some where on that same screen should be a reset function.  OR the new PS is not up to its ratings.
