I'm having voltage problems with my A7V133 Motherboard with a 1200Mhz Athlon
Thunderbird on it. Sometimes my system doesn't even boot because the BIOS
monitor reports the +5V Voltage being too low. However Asus Probe hasn't
reported any voltage problems. Nevertheless I have the following indicators
that something with the voltage is wrong:
1. BIOS monitor reports +5V Voltage being too low, system doesn't boot.
2. Asus Smart Doctor Utility for my Asus V7700 Geforce 2 GTS once reported
that the motherboard was unable to supply the right voltage for the vga card
3. random system crashes after a clean system install, even with no load

My System specifications:
A7V133 Motherboard
1200 Mhz Athlon Thunderbird
256 MB Quality DDR Ram
Asus V7700 Geforce 2 GTS
300W Power Supply
SB Live! Gamer
Windows XP SP1

I know the power supply with 300W is a bit low, but i ran this system stable
for over 2 years now. So I don't suspect that it's a problem with the amount
of power supplied. Where do I start to look for the problem? Is it a problem
with the motherboard? With the power supply? With the Graphics Card? Any
advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance and my excuse for my
bad english.....


LOL, funny you should mention that, since my caps blew... I should
have mentioned of that. :)
