hi all,
I have a celeron Desktop.I am using it from 8 months but when turned on for long time of 12-14 hours it gives the system error of voltages going very high and low but it comes to its safe values of 3.3,12 and 5 v again.I am lil worried will this harm my PC in any way? If anyone knows the possible problem and solution please let me know.

Can you post the make and model of your computer as well as the specifications you have. Please provide all 3 as not all searches for the details will give us the information we need plus you may have added parts.

Also how does this error display itself?

I have Intel Desktop board D865GVHZ(Intel celeron D processor). I have bought the assembled one.

many pc's come with a cheap psu if you are worried it is easy to change it for a quality unit that will give stable voltage. seasonic is a good make.

It depends on how this problem appears, Creature of the Nite asked you how the message appears and you haven't answered that. Does it appear in a window, is it a program you have on your computer that says this? We need more info, it could well be the power supply.
