Asus power supply

Hmm great thanks for the v fast tip.
I did remove and air clean most of the components when fitting the new power supply so i'll try this.

Am i right that a 650w supply should not make any difference to the boot up?

thanks

 A 650 watt power supply will not make any difference as long as it is  as large or larger than the one it was replacing. 
About the CPU; With out some cooling like a CPU fan running , 30 seconds is way too long and will definately shut down.

Is there any fuse inside the KH624 power supply?


Typically, there are no fuses inside these devices. You'd think that there should be - but it's not the case. Most of the time, power supply units (PSU) begin to overheat and ever so slowly die. Replacement PSU have dropped in price - like everything else. Your best bet is to replace it and maintain it from here on in to ensure a long life.

PSU's overheat and fail because of dust. Lots of it. The fan inside blows air into the PSU case to help keep the component cool. Unfortunately, dust gets blown in at the same time - and slowly builds up on all surfaces and components. The dust build up acts as a thermal insulator that prevents the air from removing the heat. A PC on the floor will have a great deal more dust build up inside than if it were on a desk top. Oh, and the fans in the PC (not just the PSU) blow dust all over the motherboard components and expansion cards inside it, too. The most expensive components are the CPU and video card(s).

Move the PC to the desk and regularly clean the components that have fans on or near them ideally with a vacuum or if unable to vacuum - blow out with compressed air to keep them running reliably.

Here are some web sites that will help you install your power supply correctly. Power supplies provide power to the motherboard and other components of a computer and need to be hooked up correctly to the components in order to give power.

Very soft ticking noise from the power supply fan


There may be some build up on the fan blades that the compressed air could not free. try using a Q-tip to clean anything stuck on the blades.

HP Pavillion won't turn on.


Hmm, did the CA damage any part of it? Sounds silly I know.
And is the power in the, Optical Disk Drive, HDD, Graphics Card and of course on the Motherboard?
Keep it on for about 40 minutes monitoring the heat ever so often even though there is nothing on the Monitor.
By the 40 Minutes it should be mid temp - Hot.
Best of Luck. Tom.

First check the wall socket make sure you are getting power, plug a lamp into it for instance. If there is no green light on the adapter then it is bad and you will need to order a new one from your computer manufactor.

Looking for a smaller fit 14cmX15cmX8.6cm power supply (ATX 12v)


It looks like a standard size case. Any power supply should fit. I doubt you'll find anything under 400 watts nowadays.

Heres a place with great prices on power supplies.. the prices jump around, so browse slowly:
