Does that mean that the power supply is OK or do I get a new one?

Sorry for the confussion, no that does not mean the psu is ok it just means your bios setting for the vcore is correct.

I recommend getting a new psu asap as the one you have now is overvolting on the 12V, this can damage any number of components.

While your at it get some case fans because the cpu temp is still to high at 55c you should at least have one 80mm in the front blowing in and one in the rear blowing out.

Might all so get some artic silver5 thermal paste to replace what you now are using but before you apply you must clean the hs and cpu with a piece of credit card and use rubbing alcohol to finish up. Be sure to apply artic silver by following the instructions on there website.

Hi, sorry it took so long to get back.

I bought a new power supply 500w, I also got 2 case fans for front and back and also replaced the thermal paste. I now have no problems playing DVD's

Your welcome,

Looks like your all fixed up now, as you found out a flaky psu can cause all sorts of weird problems, glad we caught that before something real bad happened.

Thank you for reporting back

good luck Rick
