Question about Gateway (6500683) 160-Watt Power Supply
Our computer has been shutting off intermittintly on its own. I cannot restart it or even shut it off by holding in the power button.. the only way to restart was to shut the power to the computer and then plug it back in. Now we cannot even turn it on. We called Gateway support and they sent us directions on how to test if it is the power supply or motherboard. It appears to be the power supply. Where can we find one (preferably at a store rather than internet in case we have to return it)? Does it have to be the same Wattage, and how do we find one to fit in the same space?
If you need a new power supply you would want to by a new one with 160w and up:)

Tips for a great answer:
Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
