I modified a case for a PC and made a built in PC that fits under the chart table.
I have a MSW invertor that runs everything just fine and USED to run the PC.
But now every time the PC is plugged into invertor power, the invertor shuts down its output. I verified the PC runs fine on shore marina power. And I verified the invertor starts flourescent lights, runs power tools, runs the fridge, runs the microwave, runs everything I plug
I notice now when I plug
in the PC power supply, I get a large zapping and LOUD sounding spark which I dont recall
seeing before. And reading the manual for inverter
it says if the load exceeds the rating the invertor shuts down the output. Invertor is 3000 watt, 6000 watt peak.
So is the PC power supply doing something strange?
Like a short which is there for a moment everytime it is plugged in?
Seriously, the PC is working perfect on shore power
When plugging into shore power
, the PC fans momentarily start and I dont hear the same spark. Then power on and it boots up fine.
Do they make a 12 volt PC power supply?
