200w psu in barebone kit

Q: 200w psu in barebone kit

I am thinking of buying a Jetway Barebone kit and sticking in a Athlon XP 2800+, 2*512mb ddr400, 80Gb Maxtor Ata drive, Soundblaster Audigy 2 platinum with front Panel, and a decent GFX card, at the moment im using an ATI 9100 but i want to put a 9600 or 9800 in it.

im going to buy an external CDR/CDRW/DVD USB drive to plug into it.

only problem is it comes with a 200W power supply, and the actual PSU is very very small, custom made to fit the case, so getting a replacement will be difficult.

my question is : can i run my planned spec with the 200w powersupply, is it totally impossible or is there a chance it will be enough...


Preferred Solution: 200w psu in barebone kit

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, I just recieved a 200W thunderbolt 3 docking station for my Z book. I grabbed the latest driver and firmware from HP. I installed the driver with no issue. But when I go to install the firmware I get this message "Your Host Device is not ready, Firmware Upgrade Failed!!!, Please reboot your PC then try again!!!". I have tried restarting and reinstalling, both form my desktop and using the HP Download and Install Assistant , but to no avail. Not too sure what to do now.

I'm not sure if it's always been like this but I just noticed that when I plug in my thunderbolt 3 dock, this message pops up "charging system via adapter plugged into the usb port is not supported".  Is that normal?When I click on it, a USB Type-C Information box comes up that has the support statuses and under "Power Consumer" it says it's not supported. Is this how it's supposed to be setup?I'm connected to a Zbook 17 G3 if that makes any difference.

Hi, everyone

Hope someone can help out with advise on what's the best way to proceed in the current situation.

I purchased a barebone kit and attempted to put it together. After inserting the motherboard (ASUS M4A785-M)and attaching all the elements to it (compatible AMD processor, heatsink over the proecessor, RAM, HDD and DVD-drive) I failed to get the system to power on (Triple checked the front panel connections as well as the ATX power connectors to the motherboard). After reviewing everything found my first and very fundamental mistake - I mounted the motherboard straight into the case without the little stands on which it was supposed to go. Took everything out, mounted the stands and re-inserted everything. At this point the system manages to turn on, the fans (both the CPU fan and the one in the power supply) spin up, the LED indicator on the motherboard lights up. But nothing else happens. I don't even get a POST screen. This was the case even in a bench-test with a minimal setup (powered up MB and RAM only).

I have contacted the vendor and they suggested I change power supply and the motherboard first - I initiated the return of those components, now waiting to get the new ones and going to try to re-assemble everything and hope that everything works as it should (although at this point I have a nagging disbelief that it ever will).

Is it likely that my repeated attempts to power on the motherboard while it was touching the case has caused permanent d... Read more

What are my next steps?
Click to expand...

First and foremost, read the guide at the top of the forum regrading building your own system. It is somewhat dated now and needs to be updated however the procedures are still valid.

Could it also have damaged the CPU that was connected at the time?Click to expand...

Possible however you will need to test with a new board properly installed to find out.

Barebone Kit Specs:

Biostar H61ML Intel H61 LGA1155 Motherboard
Intel Core i5-2400 3.1Ghz LGA1155 CPU
Seagate 1TB LP Serial ATA HD 5900/32MB/SATA-3G

The issue:

I purchased this barebone kit from a website and the first time I assembled everything in, turned it on and the fans would spin for a few seconds and turn back off.

I called support and they asked me to call Biostar to identify the problem, I called them and after a few troubleshooting steps such as removing everything and connect everyone one by one while testing.

The computer turns on right away without issues when the ram and everything else was connected, except the processor since we weren't there yet.

Turned the computer off and placed the processor, when I turned the PC back on it would spin the fans for 2 to 3 seconds and that was all the activity.

The Biostar tech told me the issue was the processor, I called back the company where I got the barebone kit and explained the steps taken to identify the issue. The person on the line decided to issue a replacement and expedited the shipment after they had proof that the defective part was at the UPS Facility.

After a week, the replacement processor arrived, I connected the security strip to my wrist and started to insert the CPU to the motherboard.. same problem.

The PC turns on, but then it turns back off within a 2 to 3 seconds.

Simple question: What are they?

I've seen them in dabs, and they're quite cheap:



Now, as I just want a pc to 'play around with', I've been looking in the clearance/used area, and seen one for 44 upwards.

Do they contain the motherboard, onboard sound/graphics, floppy and cpu, or is there more to them?

As I say, don't want a gaming pc, I have that as I already play Call of Duty quite a lot.

Thanks in advance for any replies

Hey guys, just need a few questions that need answering.
First of all im trying to Get into building a Good(By good i mean Very good) gamer PC without emptying my pockets. Thing is i've never gone as far as making my own system. I know a few of the basics and all but am not too sure if i know enough. So if any one can point me out to a Link to any type of resource that could help out with Bulding a Pc using a barebone, that would help.
Now the next thing is the Barebone system itself. I'm not sure which to go for. Im trying to get something that can smoothly run a game like Doom3 or Battlefield2 at or near best quality. I'm currently looking at this and for the Graphics card, something like
This .
Would this be good enough? Or would i need something better? How about the Barebones system, any issues i might have with it? If thats the case then what else should i get.
And last, about the Barebones system i've shown above. What other parts would i need to both make the Computer work and get the Gamer system i want.
Thanks in advance,

hi i am have had recent problems wit this computer that I am building... the barebone kit came from target pc and first time i boot it up it just had nothing on the screen( it was not a video issue) I led to believe that the mobo was broke so i sent it back now i just got it back today and i go to start it up and was it does is go on for about 5 seconds then goes off and a like a beep code goes of high low high low , on an on .... ( i doubt if they are post beep codes cause i just never heard a post beep code like it) I doubt it is the Power supply but not sure ... when i got the board back the heat sink and fan were offf so they might have banged around in there ..im not sure... the board is a KT-748... i called target pc and they said that memory should not be a issue so the ddr that i bought from best buy should be ok...any feed back on what to do please tell ..this is a amd board also

A:barebone problem

That beep code indicates an urgent temperature issue.

If the heatsink is not correctly fitted to the CPU you have a matter of a few seconds (or less) before destructive temperatures can be reached.

Some CPU's may self limit by shutting down, some may not ... AMD may not from memory, but self destruct instead?

The first time I turned it on it said the CPU has been changed, enter SETUP to re-enter information to CMOS.

I can either press F1 to continue or
DEL to enter SETUP
I ended up not changing anything thing and instead just clicked save and exit on the SETUP screen and now it doesn't give me that boot screen anymore. I think thats ok, I hope! If not I need to find out how to reset it and start over again.
I just want the damn computer to run through the memory check. show the devices I have, then go to the next screen where I can boot from my floppy or CD rom drives so I can start loading Windows XP! CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME with this here. I guess my question is what should I do?
SHould I reset and start over (and then what)?
Am I fine now (just install XP)?
What should I change around in the CMOS or BIOS?

You're trying to use an O/S installation from another motherboard? It's not surprising that it's not working, do a clean install and I suspect you'll have better luck.

On the off chance you have bad memory, download www.memtest86.com and build the boot floppy. Run it overnight.

Personally, I suspect that trying to swap the MB is the real issue...

"create my own barebone computer kit".

Hmmm. Not sure I ever heard of that.

Barebones are usually pre-packaged groupings of 3 or 4 primary components, such as case/motherboard/PSU and don't allow you to choose EACH AND EVERY component.

OverclockersUK has barebones:

They also say: Note - If you would like to make a small change to the specification call our sales team on 0871 200 5052 and they will be happy to help. The lead time on all pre-built barebones is between 24-48 hours.

I am a new guy here and dont kown it is a right place to ask.

Probably going to dump my computer for a good laptop. I play a few FPS games and will be playing some in the future. I am looking for a barebone setup backed by a solid name and good repution. I would like to stuff as many of the parts myself as I can.
I really wanna personally pick out the cpu, memory and hdd myself so I can put them in and save money. It would be a core 2 duo setup.
Any ideas? How is asus. Key is a good warranty so if I have a problem with a part that isn't mine I can get it replaced really easily.

A:Barebone system...

I have seen a few bare bones laptops, not too many of them by companies with really great system reputations. But in the end it seems that you can buy a system already configured cheaper after you consider the price of the bare laptop then adding the CPU and all into the mix then having to purchase a retail copy of an OS. I tried looking through the sites that I have seen them and it seems that no one has one available from my list right now though.

A:Need help with building from a barebone system

Don't worry, we were all noobs once

1. just so you know, barebones systems come as separate components. when you receive it you will still have to assemble/build everything yourself. also you will recive OEM versions, instead of retail which may not have documention and warranty coverage. also, it's pretty much the same price as as buying components separately so you really don't save anything.

2. do not use the power supply that comes with the case, it will be a peice of garbage and will likely cause stability problems, or even damage your system. buy a good PSU, use this guide to help you select a good one.

3. if you want to play games, you'll also need a graphics card, the onboard graphics are only good for simple programs and internet browsing.

4. socket-939 CPUs run memory in dual channel mode, so if you want 512MB, then get 2 x 256MB sticks (or for 1GB use 2 x 512MB) sticks to utilize dual channel.

5. your CDROM link is the same as your HDD link. DVD+/-RW drives are very cheap now, so I wouldn't get anything less unless you need superfast read speeds.

hope this helps

Hi guys, I've got a huge problem. This is a brand new laptop I7 16GB ram Nvidia gtx 460m....

I loaded 64bit win7, now the caps-lock & scroll lock flashes at random times but not long after the system starts up. It has started while in bios & even safe mode,, Tried the primary RAM & also behind the keyboard.

Looked at beep codes but to no avail. Its using AMI bios.

After beeping continuesly with the two LED flashing with each sound the machine shuts down. I've read-up some stuff about discharging & trying without the power or trying without AC power but nothing works ey.

At first I thought its the nvidia driver I got of their site, because before I ran the assesment & it completed. Then it started with this flashing of the LED's I've counted the beeps at one stage adding up to 36 beeps intill shutdown. Some tries it even started beeping before the POST completed. I'm lost, & don't wanne send this nice baby back.

I loaded the Proformance and it quickly brings upthe setup screen and restarts then it just goes to the first screen which has my manufactures logo and the Pentium 4 logo on it. and it sits there for like 2 minutes and does nothing then jsut restarts and does the same thing over and over again

So I re-flashed and loaded Fail-Safe settings

Re-flashed and just hit Space bar and it won't let me go anywhere after that.

Hello, I am looking to build a new PC to replace my current one which is many years old and while still running, definitely starting to show it's age. I currently have an AMD phenom x4 9850 with 8GB ram running windows 7 on a standard SATA harddrive.

I wanted to see if anyone has suggestions on where to purchase these components already bundled in a kit? I know tigerdirect has some good barebones kits, any one know if there is anywhere else that is better? Price range will be somewhere between $600 and $800, although i'd like to keep it lower if possible. I want this system to last me a good long time, so I would like to get good quality components. I was looking at this system which seems to be well priced and includes all of what I need. Does this seem like a decent price to everybody? Thanks so much in advance for any and all suggestions. I was just going to wing it, but I figured I should ask for some opinions first!

I'm back again.

Due to some scheduling issues and an unexpected issue with my car, I was forced to put my gaming rig build on hold.

Now the time has come to put one together, but I'm starting to look around, and I'm wondering if it's just as good to buy one from the store. I mean Best Buy, and Walmart, and even Target are having some huge sales for Black Friday. and if New egg is still the way to go. Could I get an updated build? Half the parts on the old build are sold out or unavailable.


- Quad core preferred -
- AMD build -
- Good GPU -

Please include a case and if needed extra cooling devices.

Price Range


Windows 7 will be used. If that could be incorporated in the price, great. If not I will make due.

That's $700, let me know if that's out of budget.
Since you don't specify what version of Windows 7, I'll leave that up to you.
Keep an eye out for newegg black friday deals. If you haven't bought anything by then, I can take a look and maybe save some money.
