I have a problem with a tower kit PSU.
It doesn't seem to feed enough power to any hard drive I've tried.
The hard drive simply doesn't start. If I connect it to a PC it starts right away.

I measured the voltages and got +4.45V and +11.50V.
I opened the PSU and noticed some bulged capacitors.
Are the capacitors the reason for low voltages?

Bulged Capacitors = VERY BAD

replace them for like components or replace the PSU
