Faulty sensor? Or worse?

  1. An old computer I have is showing some strange readings...
    vcore1 = 1.44v
    vcore2 = 2.61v
    +3.3v = 2.14v
    +5v = 2.71v
    another +5v reading - 2.15v
    -5v = 5.41v
    +12v = 5.50v
    -12v = -6.19v

    Very strange... specs are:
    1GB DDR PC-3200,
    3 hard disks (2 IDE, 1 SATA),
    Sempron 1.8ghz,
    6600GT
    I know it's underpowered and has been for a while,, but why such a big effect? surely wouldn't it not work w/these voltages? thanks

    I use Lavalys EVEREST Home Edition to view system parameters. The home edition is free and can be found at MajorGeeks. Try it and if you get strange readings, then there's a problem with your BIOS.

    Best,
