It depends on the type of casing you have. alos it will depend on the power connector ( to the motherboard) you have. some are 20Pin & some are 24 pin. make sure you chk this mostly.

    some times the power supply has several extra connectors, as long as you buy a power supply that will give the power to the MB then you have no worry. this other extra wire where does that connect to?? if it not connected to anything, my guess is it's just an extra wire.

    if the extrs wire you are refering to is conected to the motherboard, then that means there is additional power needed by the motherboard. chances are you motherboard will work on with the new power supply, but there might be some performance drops.

Should i upgrade power supply and how much ?


watts is very small impulses of current, volts is a stead powerful current. If you are going to upgrade your power supply you just want to upgrade the watts to the next biggest which is 500watts.

Here is a link to a wattage caluculator to tell you how much you should have:

Power supply upgrade


that is a standard ATX power supply, so 95% of the aftermarket power supplies will work. Id suggest going to newegg.com and ordering one, very cheap there.

Can i get any circurt diagram for compaq power supply unit..


I found this site for schematics but am interested why you'd spend the time when reasonably priced supplies are readily available from reliable vendors. I've pulled apart a few supplies and have had some luck repairing them but overall it wasn't worth the time. Switching power supplies are not the easiest to trouble shoot. Base wishes.
