With the board powered up, you can test through the top of the ATX connector. Just park your negative on a black wire, and run round the others and see what you get. A analogue meter is better in case it's fluctuating because digital meters dont pick this up very well.
Thanks guys for the tips. But I beleive it to be the motherboard, if that is possible....
I bought a new power supply, got the same readings. I had the old board, same make and model ( the one I had now is a replacement, and I have not sent back the old one...) and got the same reading. Put the old power supply in the new (old) board and got the same reading. Pulled an old 250w power supply off an old computer and got the same reading. Yes, the volts did change slightly, but were basically the same through all tests.
So I am leaning towards motherboard (s). Why GW would ruin a great MSI board is beyond me.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
