      Answer

      You probably forgot to connect your hard drive to the new power supply. Make sure it's fully seated.

      Power supply Dynex 520 takes a few minutes to turn on   (3 Answers)

      I just replaced my power supply on my desktop is a Amd quad core with a Sata drive msi motherboard. After putting the power supply in, it didn't work right away. I rechecked and replugged power to motherboard and waited. After a few minutes it went on. It works fine now, but if I power off my tower and shut off my power surge it doesn't power up again. Then I have to open the tower again and wait few minutes. Do I have a defect power supply or does the computer have to stay on all the time? I just purchased at best buy 2 day ago?

        That sounds like a defective part. You should be able to return, or exchange the item within 15 days of purchase with no restocking fee.

      Does this power supply work with intel pentium d cpu's?   (2 Answers)

      A while ago I upgraded my dell dimension e520 from a intel dual core 1.83 Ghz to an intel pentium d 930 3.00 Ghz cpu. However, the model compatibility states that it works with dual-core and multicore CPUs. Would it still work with the cpu I currently have?

          Yes, any psu will pretty much plug and play with almost all standard pc's. I would highly recommend the Corsair 700 watt modular psu....it comes with all the cords needed and then some extra if you ever upgrade your pc....all for about $90

            I would go with something with a little higher continuous power rating. The continuous rating on this is around 440 watts. I'm too lazy to take the side cover off my system to check it right now, but in my Gigabyte P43 system I have a 650 watt continuous supply. The quad-core Intel CPU uses 130 watts by itself. John
