I would immediately stop using that computer until the power supply is replaced!!!

ATX power supplies have outputs of 12 volts (and -12 volts), 5 volts and 3.3 volts. It sounds like besides the fan problem you are having a problem with the 3.3 volt output of the power supply.

Before you damage the PC, I suggest you shut it off!!!

Regardless, if you keep it up (if it is the PSU) you'll damage your system. Check the PSU out before restarting it. PSU testers are available for $10 online.

If it is "brand new power supply" you shouldn't be having an issue the "power supply fan" either.

If you are running the PSU without the fan running anything can happen. Even :thumbsup:. Just in case, I hope you have a fire extinguisher handy, preferably a CO2 or Halon. Dry chemical extinguishers are messy and hard to clean up, particularly the ABC type (monoammonium phosphate) that may damage electrical appliances such as a computer.

Take your receipt and the power supply back to BestBuy. Tell them that you want to return it because it's not working properly. They should have a tech check it for functionality before they'll let you return it.

My local BestBuy stocks 2 kinds of PSU's - Dynex and Antec. I'm not impressed by the Dynex, but the Antec are good quality units.
