-5V error

woo, i back,
wont boot, think my mobo is doa

from this, but now

got a msi master K7D-L, its so close to being my old bored that iv got erverything working without reinstalling anything apart from telling were the lan and sound drivers were,

anyhoo only thing thats bothering me is that on the pc alert 3 that came with the bored everything is fine, but the -5V says it is at 3.59V, all the rest are fine, is this something wrong with my psu, or is it just not powerfull enough with for all the stuff i have in it.

Get a voltmeter and check the voltage rail directly. The -5v is only used to bias the audio amplifiers on most mobos these days (and maybe the ethernet PHY) IIRC.

The red wires in the "Molex" 4-pin connectors from the power supply are +5 volts. I don't know where to measure -5 volts. Sorry.

It's usually the white wire on the ATX motherboard connector.

However, -5V isn't really used for anything any longer - so much so that the newer ATX specifications don't even have it.
