Power failure

  Elrond 16:04 05 Feb 2003

Bearing in mind i never had any problems so far. Today I installed and used Partition Magic to merge a couple of partitions on my PC. Upon reboot, I got a stop error. Windows shut down to prevent damage blah blah. Any way, i used the XP installation disk to repair and all went fine. After that upon reboot i got another error message. Internal power failure. After it did a debug dump thing it rebooted into windows fine. Odd ithought, as my first assumption was that the PSU wasn't supplying enough power even though it's been fine. So i had to re-install my graphics card drivers and restart. Upon restart, another internal power failure. Thrn it did debug dump or whatever it is. Rebooted and I'm back in windows. I find it odd that this suddenly occured when i merged to partitions. Anyway, Is there something wrong with the PSU even though it's been fine till now, and has proceeded to let me into my computer.

Elrond, which version of P/M have you used, as I believe only the latest one will work with XP.

version 8. It's worked fine. Just the PC started playing up. I'll prbably shut down again ina mo and see if it happens again

perhaps its refering to power management not being able to find devices its supposed to control ? I dont use XP but would doubt it monitors the actual PSU unit!
