Spilled small amount of water onto Logisys ps4802d2 power shutdown's been 24 it possible that it will reset and power-up?

Remove your power supply. then open it and use any hair dryer to remove water or moisture. Please check warranty before open power supply case. Be careful about filter capacitor because it is not discharge then it can hold charge from which you can get sock. after removing water or moister if still it is not working then please let me know. i will give you next solution.

How to open atx power supply

Don't open it. Buy a new one if it's not working. If you touch the wrong thing in there you will die. I'm not kidding.

Do you have a diagram that would show me step by step how to install the new power suply I bought for my computer.

Their is really no diagram to show you how to hook up your supply.
You only have a hand full of plugin connections.
Your 24 pin connection to the mother board, you may or may not have a 4 pin 12 volt video connector, which has to be connected if on the board., and your fan connections.
Everything else is controled thru the motherboard.

Ultra 350 Power supply very loud fan

It's not normal for the fan to be loud, what makes them loud is either a build up of dust on the fan blades or the bearings are going on the fan itself.
If the PSU is working fine then you can replace the fan itself from an identical PSU. It does mean taking the PSU out of the computer and fitting the fan yourself.
Alternatively you can purchase another PSU.

Acer wont keep charge but works when pluged in

if you have a ni-mh battery pack, some people report success by identifying positive and negative leads and tapping with 50v welding current + to + , - to - for a second or two to shock the nickel crystals out from the cell inside...

you can also rebuild your battery pack by replacing the cells (they look like c cell batteries)....

but if you have lithium cells DO NOT shock them as they'll blow up in your face and maybe kill ya...
ni-mh could too... (but not nearly as likely)

basically your battery is dead, and you need a new battery.

Printer says paper jam, but no paper in there

use a flash light check all paper path, specially the area around the toner. all you need is a small piece or other (dust). There is a micro switch that detect the paper travel. so if anything preventing the switch to open, you will get error message.
after that, open the toner door, reseat the toner and close the door. the pirnter should return to normal.

1 or 1.5 amp power supply to a fish tank

first, ensure it really is supplying a/c and not d/c current. if it is d/c ensure polarity (+ and -) is a match. then try it without the filter first. if the light seems bright enough, turn it off then turn on filter...if it seems to be running ok, then try both on for about 5 minutes. now feel if adapter is getting too should be only warm to touch. now try both on for about 30 minutes. now feel if adapter is getting too should be only slightly warmer than before. many manufacturers purposely over-rate the current draw to "be on the safe side" usually by 150 to 200% over so that your light/filter really only needs 1 amp.

Leaking of transistors

no. not only is it cheaper in the end to buy a new supply, but there are most likely more parts (which may be hard to locate without special equipment) nuked than only the transistors. so buy a new one.
