The computer is not a state of the art machine, just a plain girly PC for surfing the internet, downloading and facebook gaming. I'm using the on-board sound and graphic cards, 3 internal drives, 3 external drives (that are most of the time in sleep mode), no overclocking, no elaborated cooling things, only two 8mm and a 12mm fans. But it's 5 years old and is on 24/7.
I'm not sure who to blame for the 2,5 KW/h per day raise in the past 10 months, but the PC is the only machine that I can afford to cut back.
And here's where I need your help my valued internet friends. I've run the Power Efficiency Diagnostics Report which gave me a few errors and warnings but I don't know how to correct them. Also, I've read that the Power Supply is expected to fail after a few years and mine is 5 years old. Is that true? Should I buy a new one? What else would you suggest besides turning off my computer when I don't need it?
