Hi,

Recently, I upgraded my mobo, ram, and my processor. and i seem to have a problem... sometimes when i boot, my monitor won't show anything, but i know the cpu is working because the lights in front of it are flashing.

now i suspect that the power supply is the one causing this, maybe it can't supply enought power?

When I buy a new one, what wattage do i need? Here's my specs:

- ECS EliteGroup MoBo
- 1 GB RAM
- No video card (just the built-in)
- 1 DVD/CD Writer

How can I know the needed power?
SUggestions? thanks

First check if your PC works fine with other PSU's (borrow one if possible).
300W brand PSU will be good.

Mean 400W. 400W brand (FPS, High Power, Chieftec, Seasonic, Zalman) will suit all PC's tastes.
