How to make PSU boot after hard power off
Posted on 2004-10-18
A computer of mine has a problem where the power supply doesn't seem to turn the computer back on after the power has failed, been pulled... etc.
I must admit the simpleness of the AT PSU's was preferable that if the button was on, then there is a hard connection for the power being on.
It's an ATX power supply which came with the case, the model of the PSU is EXCEL350WCE, and I'm running Windows 2000 on the machine.
Can the power supply be configured somewhere by BIOS or some other APM to turn itself back on in the even that the power fails? It's unacceptable to stay powered off once the power is restored in this situation.
If anyone can shed some light on this problem from their own experience it would be much appreciated. Thanks! Also might give bonus points if the solution requires minimum "experimentation", I'd rather not have it down for too long.
