        replace the power supply straight up, dont even bother pulling it to bits you wont be alble to fix it anyhow... besides at bout $40 or so for a new one, dont waste your time

        while your at it check the main board for capacitors that are bubbled

        if the mainboard caps are bubbled, dont even bother with the new psu

          Yeah, faulty power supplies will do this everytime. Cheap ones are problematic as well. Personaly, i wouldnt buy a $40 PS. Id spend a little more and get a decent one, thats just me though
