Gigabyte SINXP1394 motherboard Dual Power Supply

I have a Gigabyte SINXP1394 motherboard which features a Dual Power supply and has an extra card with fan for this purpose.

A Dual power supply failure indication shows on start up. I checked inside and the fan on the extra part seems to be working and the fancy blue light on the chip are on.

I have tried contacting Gigabyte but their advice was to update the Bios which has proved to be useless and of no help.

What should I do know?

Having never come across this error before, does this mean that you cannot use the PC at all?

When did you purchase the mobo? If it's still under warranty you could return it for a replacement, maybe? G

Tony_B, this is the only forum thread where I could find any success with this problem click here - users have done varying things to solve it. Good luck, G

Thanks Crossbow7 that thread describes the problem exactly. Its just that mine has been working fine for over a year and then suddenly it started having problems.

I am going to have a friend of mine look at this, he's a bit more tech than me. We will see what happens.

An update to an earlier version of the Bios seems to have worked.
