  1. If you are in any doubt your PSU is showing signs of giving up, i certainly would not want to put any stress on it, because if it is at fault, it could take all the components it is attached to with it if it goes bang. Swap it out with a new quality unit ASAP. Then, if you wish get it tested by a qualified electrician.

  2. I wouldn't even bother getting it tested, once you've replaced it what's the point? - just bin it.

    Good point Phillip. I am just one of those people who like to know why, and how badly something is going wrong. Just for experience and education.
