'faulty ATX power suply - very [OT]'

Hello,

   my computer is turning off automagically about 7 times a day and I think
it's a power suply problem.

   Someone knows how can I hack the signal wire that the motherboard uses
to turn the PS on/off?

   Best regards,

   Brusque

Brusque,

Are you sure it's the power supply and not power management? I'd check that
before you go hacking into the power supply. If you're usin Win9x, it's in
the Control Panel.

Regards,

Tim Hamel

no need to hack - just short the wires for ON/OFF.
(OFF is short for 5-10 sec)
Power management could be an issue - check that first.

And I can also set my PC to turn itself on at 7am every day (my alarm
clock, with email facilities).

That is controlled in my BIOS, so look there too.

 Hack?  Exactly how do you mean?

 Feed "TX POWER SUPPLY" into Google, and this is the first reply, as
was posted to the list previously:

http://www.compute-aid.com/atxspec.html

 It should allow you to identify the control wire (pin 14), and my
memory suggests it is violet - my previous posting on this should be in
the archives.

 I'd be interested (as may many of the list) to know what you find, and
what you intend to do.  One detail I have figured is that motherboards
in general default OFF.  If however you short the front panel button,
they default ON but of course you can't turn them off then.
