Hello,my pc has been having problems lately. It started with just some random ticking noice from my hdd, so i backed upp the data. Then it dissapeared, and only shows upp sometimes.
And then it started to spin up, then stop, then spin upp again, and continued to do so until i unplugged it, my dvd burner allso had the same problem, so i suspect that problem has to do with my psu, which is quite old.
Then when i switched out my old fan to a NF-F12 i notised that the fans hooked upp to my fan controller only spins upp when it's set on low.
I have had random crashes in programs like chrome, firefox, Samsung kies, itunes. And windows 8 has started to randomly reboot. And every so often the compuer just freeses for a minute.
So should i buy a new psu and check if it fixes the hdd, dvd burner and fan problems? (i dont have access to another psu to see if it fixes the problems) What could the software problems be caused by?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'm using windows 8 90 day trial version while waiting for my windows installation cd to arrive in the mail.
