Sorry if I already asked this, but I don't see it, so I assume I didn't.

My friend has a Dell Optiplex GX something (a fairly recent model, 3GHz Pent. D, 1 GB RAM, Radeon X300, 160GB HD) that has killed something like 6 power supplies since he got it. What would be the reason for this? I believe all of the power supplies were between 350 and 450 Watts.

Any thoughts? I'd like to know what the issue is before telling him to go out and get another power supply, so as to not break more of them.

Thanks.

All my computers are on power strips with their speakers and stuff, so I never think about them having/needing surge protection. It's just there.

Thanks for the advice, though. I didn't know it only took one power anomaly to kill a power supply. I thought there's be a chance it'd survive.
