I think he is talking about the unit's size and configuration.It sure looks prety chinsy.As a good rule of thumb a good quality Power supply feels heavy.I would favor a power supply nade by a popular manufacturer. This is exellent for the price. Its 80 plus certified.

Regarding 250W SMPS


250 watt is low under any circumstances, I'd upgrade atleast to a 450 or higher, around 650watt to be extra safe.

How to use ATX-250-12z SMPS with 24 pin


Chances are that 250w power supply is not going to power a motherboard with a 24 pin connector, but you can try.
You will need to purchase a 20 to 24 pin adapter cable.

Your power supply is fried. I had the same problem with my Bestec ATX 250 power supply. I fixed the problem by installing the StatTech model: ATXPOWER250. It was easy to install and works well. It is almost identical to the original but more quiet. I got it for $29 at MicroCenter.com. Also at online Newegg.com, Radioshack.com, Provantage.com, June 20,2009

HP Pavilion 774y power supply replacement


I doubt you fried the motherboard
I would be taking my old power supply to the store where you purchased it to make sure they gave you the proper one.
Some power supplys do have that extra plug you may not need to plug it in at all
I can't see your motherboard to show you where to plug it in wish i could help more

New power supply problem


try to run it with out the memory and see if you have the right kind, put one stick in and try that, if still does not work, then you must have a short on the motherboard. I would replace that. most of the time the power box goes out it shorts the motherboard out too. if a green light is on, the power box is good and the motherboard is out. Farren
