Having problems with your Chieftec Dragon - Lighting Yellow Mid-Tower Case with Solid Side, USB and FireWire Ports (DX-01YLD-U) ATX Mid-Tower Case ?

On a lighting tower i turn on 1 light and it draws 9amps when i turn on 2 they draw 30 amps and blow 15 amp fuse why ?


Answers :

Why are you blowing a 15 amp fuse or why is your machine drawing so much current?
1:The fuse is blowing because you are drawing enough current to blow it.
2: Your computer, no matter what make or model should not be drawing that much current, your wall outlet is typically 15 amps.
Your power supply is most likely the culprit and may have damaged other components of your machine i.e the motherboard.
Disconnect the computer from the outlet, open it up and inspect it for burn marks, sniff for odd burnt smells.
I think you need a new power supply at the very least and maybe more.
