Top 10 Signs of Power Supply Failure

No matter how well you construct your PC or how thorough the testing is, some components will inevitably fail over time. One of the most common issues for techs has always been power supply failure due to its prevalence. It’s important to identify these issues as soon as they occur and take action accordingly so that we can do what we need without too much effort involved.
