    Hardware monitor found an error....

    when i restart my comp (or start it up again after a short period of being off) i get a "Hardware monitor found an error" message. when i go into the BIOS to check it, i can see the -5.0 voltage is in red because it is getting down to -5.5 volts. does this mean my computer has SARS??

    how can i fix this? its been this way for a while and i dont have any problems while its running, any ideas?

    Sounds... bad. It could fry chips. Of course, while it's there, you might as well overclock

    Realistically, though, unless you've done something with the hardware to change it or you've tried to do some overclocking, just get a new power supply. You can probably get the company to replace yours if it's relatively new.
    Away.
