Question

Locked

power supply

By dngr1179 ·
I have a dell studio xps 435. i've been having a lot of freezes/lockups since new. I have found Dell tech support to be worthless. This unit came with a 475 watt psu and was wondering if it may be a little underpowered.

You should return it to the factory under warranty ...

Arguing with a Tech bloke on a telephone will not achieve anything if the PSU is deficient in any of its voltage rails.

Return it for examination / PSU replacement.

ATI says

ATI RADEON MINIMUM POWER SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS
Minimum 300Watt or greater system power supply.

With a 475 watt psu I would say you may have some power issues. Did you add any additional items that would draw power?

But as stated already, pull up a chair and bite your lip as you talk to the dopes on 1st level support.
