How to Troubleshoot a PC Power Supply?

Hi Friends,

A computer power supply is responsible for drawing electricity from an outlet and converting it into energy that a computer can use safely. If a computer's power supply is malfunctioning, it is likely to cause crashes and eventually, the computer may not be able to start up at all. I just hear from my friend that there are several methods to determine whether a power supply is defective, though the best way to avoid problems caused by a poor power supply is to install one that has plenty of power to run all of the computer's devices. But, he did not tell me about the procedure of troubleshoot a PC power supply. I need some valuable view for my problem. Hope any suggestions and view about it, then kindly help me.

Thanks a lot!
