ok i just upgrade my comp i had a 2.6c hyperx pc-3200 ram and a cheap cheiftec psu. i upgraded to a 3.2e corsair pc-4000 and forton 530watt psu. im running a abit ic7 max3 mobo. i try to boot my comp and its beeps like high pitch and it hurts my ears. it said you have changed the cpu press F1 so i did it doesent stop beeping. i figure i need to update the bios because the old bios doesent support prescott. so i take out the 3.2 and put in my 2.6 to update the bios. when i start the program to update the bios (flashmenu) HWdoctor says high votage on 3.2v and 5v rails for like 2 sec then it stops. when i press update all of them say high voltage and its beeping kind of like a police siren then in the middle of flashing HWdoctor shuts down windows??? I dont get it ??? i was in aim and IE and nothing was happening but when i go in flash menu evry thing went crazy? is this the psu or something else? the psu has over voltage protection according to newegg? what should i do?

Thats really wierd. I have never seen that before. I guess, if I were you is put your old PSU in, and boot up with the new CPU. If it works, RMA that other power supply.

That would be my guess you could take a wire and jump pins 14 and 15 together on your PSU to jumpstart it and then check the 3.3 and 5VDC voltages on the ATX connector with a meter and you would know for sure.
