Reason’s to upgrade your Power Supply

Is your computer unresponsive? Is it not powering on at all?  If you are not seeing any lights light up or hearing the CPU fan kick on then it may be that your power supply unit has failed. Our Technicians here at Four Corners Computer Center can assess the issue using our power supply tester. If necessary we can replace your faulty power supply with a new, high-quality power supply. We charge a ½ hour flat bench fee for this service plus the price of the power supply. Usually, we can install the power supply the same day and have you up and running within hours!  Listed below are the varieties of power supply units we sell. We offer the power supply wattage best suited for your system and needs, at a price you can afford.

Another reason you might want to consider upgrading your power supply is when the fan in the power supply is failing. The bearings in the fan that keep the power supply cool will sometimes fail. If this is the case you need to replace the entire power supply. It is possible to replace the fans but not really a good idea or very cost effective. If the fan does fail or is not providing proper cooling sometimes you will smell a burning smell coming from the power supply. If you smell a burning smell coming from your power supply we would recommend replacing it right away. If the power supply burns up it could possible surge and take out your motherboard or even your hard drive so you don’t want to wait to get this done.

Last but not least you might consider replacing your power supply if you find that the computer is under powered. This can happen especially if you have recently purchased a new high-end video card! Video / Graphics cards these days are taking more and more power just to run the card itself. If you like gaming on your PC then you will find yourself upgrading the video card more often than anything else. We have some high-end power supplies just for this purpose. If you don’t see it on the website it doesn’t mean we don’t have it. We carry a great selection of high-end power supplies for your gaming needs.
