I just bought a new PC with these specs: AMD Athlon XP 1700+, Asus A7V333 (KT333) m/b, 256MB Kingston DDR Ram, Asus V8200 GeForce3 Ti200 gpu, Maxtor 60GB hdd with ATX standard casing plus power supply.
Upon installing Asus Probe m/b monitoring program, I received a warning on one of my 3 m/b voltages! the +12V specs is reading 13.311, thus causing the error. The default treshold setting recommmended is 12+/-10%.
My questions: What is this 12V used for? What might be the causes for this voltage fluctuation? What is the damage for PC if I chose to ignore this warning? How to overcome this problem?
Please help asap.
