    You should not be having any problems with connecting the supply. The large main power connector is keyed so it can only fit into the mainboard connector one way (unless you really work to force it in backwards). The remaining 4-pin connectors are for drives. Is there some specific trouble you are having?

PCs these days are built so that cables only fit one way in one place where it should be. Just take your time, and don't force, but do apply pressure while inserting the cables into the correct slots.

Hp dc7600 PC Desktop is it compatible with MSI 8400GS 512MB PCIE TV OUT + DVI and will it work and not overheat power suply?Thanks


The problem wouldn't be overheating, the problem would does your power supply have a high enough wattage to run the card. Typically you want a power supply with at least 300-350 watts. Most store bought computers won't have a big enough power supply. Drop the card in and power up the computer. If it boots all the way your good if it doesn't, upgrade the power supply. You want hurt the computer by trying. Also when you open the tower up the wattage should be listed on the side of the power supply. There are plenty of cheap power supplies on line. Just looked on newegg.com $30 for a 500W. Search YouTube on how to install, it's pretty easy.

Optiplex gx820 can i connect 300 watt power supply


You listed GX820 and GX260.

I am assuming you meant the GX260.

There are three varieties of the Gx260.

1) The SFF (Small Form Factor) power supplies can be replaced, but I know of no upgrades for these.

2) For the SDT (Small Desk Top), you can get up to a 270 (best I have seen).

Example of where to get one.

For the Mini Tower, here is an example of a 400W replacement. There may be others for this model.

I have a GX280 Mini Tower and recently upgraded my PSU to one very similar to the one above.

Need a new power supply what are the options?


any atx power supply will work. Look on the old power supply to get the wattage rating and get one comparable. If it's 250 watt you can get a 250 or 300 watt, if it's 400 watt you can get a 400 or 500 watt so forth and so on, but I wouldn't get on of less wattage than the original. Go to newegg.com they have lots of choices and at good prices. Hope this helps.

TOWER WOT START UP


First to be check is your power supply. Used power supply or brand new ones, does not matter as long as it is working properly, with correct voltage and ampere rating. Check your power supply with a voltmeter. Please take note also the total watts you need.. If your power supply is running good, problems will go down the line, the Motherboard. Remove all devices (hard disk, cards, memory, etc) just the motherboard, just to see if the motherboard is working right. Your should be hearing a beep sound indicating that the board is alive. If yes, you may reinstall the rest of the devices you removed.

No you don't. If you think the power supply is bad, then unplug it, unscrew it, and take it to a discount place like Fry's to simply match it. Compaq does not make its own power supplies, so they use generic ones, like everyone else does. The only thing you have to choose is how many watts you need. The original may have been rated too small if it went bad, and you many want one with more power, like 500 watts.

My HP Compaq D530 won't come on. The lights will not blink or anything. I tried to unplug the power cord from the inside for a few minutes and plug it back in. I even reset the cmos/memory sticks. Still...


bad mos feats meaning you need a new psu, the chances of the board being bad are slim if the lights flashed when the power is plugged in, but insufficient power to the main board often the case where theirs not enough 5 volt rail power to run the main board. the molex connectors should be pulled and try turning on the psu without a load. then try to plug the power back in. something may have just gotten lose. if it works then the psu is ok and all's well. mosfeats are transistorized circuits and they can fail on a heavy load on the board. recommendation for a desktop tower not a gaming machine is about 250 to 300 watt power supply atx ;)

Computer freezes after about 10 mins !


It is possible the power supply is now too small for the number of loads you now have.Not sure what your CPU is ,but I bet it is 80 watts just by itself. The minimum wattage requirement or the video card by itself is 300 watts.Add the drives,ram,fans and mobo and you way underpowered.
