Is it possible to have a motherboard corrupt a power supply?

I have a computer that quite working and I suspected the power supply. I installed a working power supply but that did not help. When I checked the voltage levels on the power supply, the 12 volt pins were only at 11 volts.

Did my motherboard wreck my ATX power supply?

Any help would be appreciated

Look at the label on your power supply. There should be a tolerance for your voltages of + or - so many volts. Are you sure it's not your motherboard that is bad??

I have looked at the power supply label. There is no +/- tolerance labeling on it.

The original power supply had a voltage level of 10 on pins 10 and 12. That voltage is way too low.

Could that have hurt the motherboard?

(I am starting to think that it is a serious motherboard problem.)
