What! not if you know what your doing and that doesn't take much skill.
Replacing the power unit is a real pain on the rc500
1. You have to remove the motherboard to get it out
2. A replacement is hard to find, acer and acer parts don't stock one and have only found a couple on ebay which are really expensive.
3. Hard to migrate to a new case because of the form factor.

solution: Get a new pc or unit and salvage some of the parts

You cannot change a power supply unit on a computer, you will damage the whole computer or you can even fry yourself.

Buy a new computer.

Poer supply is not working. wont turn on


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 fail to detect a hard drive continue on a cycle or to shutdown

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA and

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

Hi i have a grundig gu22dvd the power supply keeps turning off can i buy a new poers lead and transformer


helen366, if unit continues to do same thing, I suggest you contact Grundig for warranty service to put it right again!!! You must tell them that it should not have premature failure of the internal "switch-mode-power-supply" and they should replace the unit with new or refurbished same model free of charge.

I am not able to boot the computer


Replace the power unit. Go to eBay to find a reasonable priced one. They are fairly simple to replace, just make sure you are grounded and that you hook everything back the way it was. You will need the part number to find the exact one on ebay.

Power Suply Replacement


Any good computer supply company should handle power supplies. The important thing is to get one rated for the same power. (300W, 350W, 400W, etc.) You can always go higher, but not lower.

Try disconnecting the power supply from the circuit breaker tor 10sec., "on" it again and start the unit. If it don't correct the problem you need a qualified technician to check the defective parts in the unit.
