    Did you install a new power supply and has the computer worked fine since then. I bought the Best Buy equivalent of the Dell 540 in mid January and had BestBuy install a more powerful power supply because sales person pointed out standard 350 watt unit was not adequate. Computer worked fine and then about 2 weeks after purchase began to have occasional problems booting (error loading operating system) and rapidly developed many more problems (stating that product key for windows was invalid, later finding key to be valid, stating file system on drive C corrupt, file system fixed, file system corrupt, various window components crash, frequent blue screens of death.) BestBuy replaced hard drives but that did not help. Now BestBuy will next week replace mother board and memory. I wonder if the 650 watt Antec power supply damaged t hings. There seems to be confusion over whether it is safe to put a different power supply into the Studion 540.

Sounds like the power supply is not compatible with the motherboard. If the motherboard can't support a 400 watt powers supply you will either get a blinking light or nothing at all. Those optiplex's use a proprietory power supply because of the pin connectors and how a power supply is supposed to fit in there. If you can't find a 400 watt power supply that fits then get a hold of Dell and see if they sell one for that computer.

Any power supply should work as long as it's the proper minimum wattage. You only need to make sure that it has the power connectors you need for your system. T'here is nothing wrong with buying a 400 watt P/S or larger. Many systems have under powered power supplies if you add onto or upgrade your system. For example when building systems you need to calculate how much ram memory your system will have and you need so many watts for each gig of ram. Dells normally come with under minimum required ram so they don't put very good power supplies in their systems and when people upgrade the ram the power supplies are usually inadequate.
