"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

See http://www.dewassoc.com/support/Intel/active_monitor.htm

There are two possibles, the power supply or the CPU running at an unknown voltage for the software.  Both are discussed on the link above.

take a Voltmeter, and measure the voltages on the molex , or sata power connectors (+5 and +12 V) they should be within 10%
you can also measure all voltages on the 24 pin connector to the board :

most probable is a dying PS; but it can be caused by the motherboard too (bad capacitors is a known cause for both)
