I haven't had too many troubles with power supplies, but found some decent links and decided to record them. (I might catalog my past problems with power supplies.)



Past Problems

Original PC Clone

Flaky operation, added a large capacitor on the 12 volt rail (inside the PS case, IIRC) and solved the problem.

ATX Switch Does not Control Power

See AtxPowerSupplies.

Power Sensing

Even some non ATX power supplies sense current or voltage and shut down if they sense a problem — Zenith system would not power up with power to floppy connected wrong (difficult to see the connector without removing the floppy).
