I am using a old power supply... now i hav installed a few new items at my cpu . Such as Casing fans. I connect the power supply to my casing fan and i notice the dvd rom of mine like running low power , my cd-rw dont work normal as they suppose too. Slower than usual. When i remove the fan , everything back to normal.
I was wondering if i increase the voltage of my power supply , will it burn my motherboard or others ? because I asked the shopkeeper and they told me is okie and because sales man they are trying to make the sales , they can just bull*!@:ting around... so i wondering izzit okie ?
If there is a limit to a certain voltage , please tell me ... thankz !
[Quote]I saw behind of my casing and saw the default power supply voltage was 240. Can it be increase to a higher voltage ?[/Quote]
Should have said what Vog said, if you do flick the switch it will become a 110v power supply and as soon as you switch it on it will blow up. Look at this click here this will tell you what wattage of power supply you need.
If your computer only needs 250 watts to run then thats all it'll use, if you connect it up to a 500 watt power supply it'll still only use 250 watts cos the power supply provides the power the computer asks for, if you get my meaning. The only thing I would pay attention to is what type of supply do you have? Almost all computers now use ATX but if your computers older it may be an AT power supply. Have a look on the case of the actual power supply and see if it tells you.
