    I Need a way to test computer Power Supply

    Powered by Design Level 4

      Im running a 2005 Dell XPS

      Intel Pentium 4  3.4GHz

       

      I get a BSOD (Blue Screen of DEATH) every once in awhile.  Mostly at startup.

       

      The code seems to be something with hard drives.

       

      Now being an old maching and adding 2 more drives for a total of 3 i had to us splitters to power everything.

       

      I also have a Nvidia 9800GT card with 1024MB RAM with 2 six power ran to it also.

       

      I have looked on the outside of my case but cant see what my PSU power is.

       

      I know I could open it up but was wondering if there was any software kinda like CPU-Z that could read what is inside my computer ?

       

      Maybe something that could add up all that is inside and see how much is being used ?

       

       

      I will be building a new i7 soon but for now this is what I have.

       

      I ran the PPBM4 test and think im going to take over the LAST spot.

       

      Here are the results:
