I wouldn't recommend it as PSUs require a particular airflow. That airflow might be blocked by placing it next to the Hard Drive(s) and might heat up your system even more.

If the cables are long enough, you could just find a way to mount the PSU outside of your system. That way it stays cool, doesn't hamper airflow within your system, and doesn't generate excess heat inside your system.

I have an Acer Aspire AM1641 U1521A desktop that will not boot up. No beeps, errors or monitor activity. Do I need a new hard drive, motherboard...?


Power Supply. Weak voltage power rail.

Has enough power to light LED lights, maybe spin fans, (Or spin a few times, and stop), but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

1) ALL of the LED lights combined use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Depends on what Processor it is.

Acer Aspire M1641-U1521A?
Intel Pentium Dual Core E2180 (2.0GHz)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_Dual-Core_microprocessors#.22Allendale.22.2C_.22Conroe.22_.2865_nm.29

Can use up to 65 Watts. (TDP)

The Power Supply used is a 250 Watt unit. Acer isn't known to use high quality power supply's. It's a generic low quality Power Supply.

[ However in all fairness to Acer, if the inside of the computer, AND the inside of the Power Supply, isn't cleaned out on a regular basis as needed, this can cause Power Supply failure also.

Use a can of compressed air for computers, with the plastic 'straw' attached. Hold onto the can with one hand, use the other hand to hold onto the straw, shoot air through the ventilation holes of the Power Supply's case. (Computer unplugged from power)

Come around to the back of the computer, use the air to clean the Power Supply's fan blades, center hub, and surrounding cage. (Shroud)

When the cooling components for the Power Supply, (Fan and Heatsinks used inside), become clogged with dust, dirt, etc., the cooling capacity drops tremendously.

The Power Supply overheats.
Heat = Wasted Energy

The Power Supply strains to keep up with the call for power, but eventually cannot, and fails.
Components inside the Power Supply fail ]

Replace the Power Supply.

The green power light on the PSU is on but the machine will not power up PSU is an HP5188-2627. The machine (HP m7580uk) has been on for an extended period of time but was working fine until it was finally...


Power supply failure, or the Power On switch. (Behind the Power On button)

My money's on the power supply failure.

Why?
It's the leading case of computer failure. The power supply is the 'Heart' of a computer. (Processor is the 'Brain', Motherboard is the 'Building Block')

Computer was on for an extended length of time? Was the computer ever turned off, and the inside of the computer cleaned out on a regular basis?
(Power supply also)

Normal procedure is to unplug the computer from power, open the computer case, and use a can of compressed air for computers.

Power supply light is on?
This is what is going on.

Computer power supply's are rated in Wattage, for power.
Voltage times Amperage = Wattage

The HP 5188-2627 power supply, supplies three main voltages. It has three main voltage power rails.

1) The 3.3 Volt rail
2) The 5 Volt rail
3) The 12 Volt rail

Your power supply has a weak voltage rail.

A) ALL the lights use less than 1 Watt of power.
B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts
C) A typical Processor uses 55 to 125 Watts.

There isn't enough power from the power supply to turn the Processor on.

Solution is to replace the power supply.
It may seem a little daunting for someone replacing a computer power supply, the first time.

After you have replaced one, it becomes easier.
Essentially you are just opening the computer case, unplugging the power cables from the power supply to the various hardware components, and removing the power supply.

To install just reverse these steps.

The power supply in your computer is a 300 Watt power supply. (Maximum wattage)

The size, and shape of the power supply, is one that is used in over 90% of personal computers.
ATX

What I would I recommend for a replacement?
Not one of the cheap quailty Hi-Pro's that HP used, that's for sure!

An OCZ StealthXStream 400 Watt is what I would recommend.
Why?

1) It will fit
2) It has a 140 Millimeter fan compared, to the 80mm fan that your old power supply has.

A larger fan means it will run quieter, due to the fact that it won't have to turn as fast, in order to put out as much air.
Will actually put out more air than that 80mm fan, and will spin slower.

3) Has two 12 Volt power rails.
One 12 Volt rail can deliver 17 Amps.
The other 12 Volt rail can deliver 14 Amps.

You can add the two 12 Volt power rail Amp's together, for 31 Amps.

Means less strain for the power supply, to keep up with the tasks.
(Your old power supply probably has an 18 Amp, 12 Volt power rail)

4) Has all the power cables you'll need.

5) Price, and reliable quality.

This is one place that carries them,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4675269&CatId=1078

There are other places also. Not advertising for the above website, nor the power supply manufacturer.
Just my personal preference, based on experience with both.

A computer only uses the power it needs, and NO more.
If you install a 1000 Watt power supply in your computer, and the computer only needs 100 Watts, it only uses 100 Watts.

(Surfing the internet typically uses 100 Watts of power. Like a 100 Watt light bulb)

This may help guide you in replacing the power supply,

Power supply packed i n


Yes, you can safely put in equal or higher. Just make sure it is an ATX and that it is P4 compatible. Most new ones all meet to those specs. Higher is actually better. I would go with a 400w or higher.

If you have a standard atx case then any standard atx power supply should work. Yes you can upgrade to one with more wattage as long as it has all the connectors you need. Hope this helps.
