Well no i'm not trying to get the secret answer. I'm just trying to get a solution first before spending 80 bucks on a PSU that may not be the problem. But i'll try to get one that I can borrow.

I can understand that, of course.

If you feel it may be an IRQ conflict, have a look in the BIOS and check out the IRQ settings.

Also have a look at the properties of your hardware under Device Manager and see if there are any reported issues.

I don't wanna give anymore useless info, and I know software isn't the way to check voltages. But in both Dual Core Center and Speedfan it says that the 12V line only gives 9,95. Although in the BIOS it says 12,05... or is the BIOS more trustable than the 2 programs?

Both of them are monitoring programs, I personally wouldn't put one over the other. The fact that they are different, though, still points me toward the PSU.
