I bought three non name brand PC's and for some reason the power supplies on them keep going out. When I replaced the PC with a new power supply a couple days later the power supply goes out again.
The type of motherboard is MSI(945GCM7-F) with 2 Super Talent DDR 667 PC5300 1GB stick of memory. The power supply is a Rhycom-sgt ATX P4 switching power supply 450 watts. One more thing. The cases that these PC's came in is very cheaply made so I had them send me three better cases and it seems as thought that that might have been the issue. It could be something to do with the ground or lack of being grounded. The reason I say this is because I sold the last one with the cheap case last week and got a phone call a week later saying it wouldn't come on. Changed the power supply and it booted right up but went bad the very next day. That is all the info I can think to give you. If there is anything else you need to know please ask. But any info on why this is happening would really be appreciated.
