The power supply is very inexpensive and can most likely be bought from any of your computer retailers, Amazon - Just make sure to confirm the right model type of power supply. BEST to have it tested before replacing it. To make sure that is the issue.. Many computer shops will test for free.
Most computer testing facilities will test your current power supply for free. A replacement is very inexpensive to replace. Bestbuy, MicroCenter, small computer shops and buy replacemnent from Amazon.com, newegg.com.. Just make sure you have the correct information for your replacement. The model number on the power supply would be your best bet in most cases. Good luck and have a great day. I buy power supplies as low as $15 dollars Generic
short the color green and black of your atx... use a metal wire.. don't wory it won't harm you... just unplug all the connection that is connected from you ATX.... short the said wire then plug your ATX to the outlet.. if fan is running then there's no problem on your ATX.. if not then you need to replace a new one...
Would recommend replacing this unit instead of serrviceing it yourself it will cause adverse effect and may even smoke. These units once they dye there gone. If you need a diagram I would direct you to www.apex.com.
This is not a problem, and as it sounds, is not used in your system.
Some video cards have such huge processing power that they need thier own supply, as it would draw too much current from the motherboard otherwise. Below is a web site which reinforces this information, and gives an explanation of each connector.
How about the LC Power LC350M Micro ATX - 380 Watt
Logisys 350W Micro ATX
They should fit your form factor and output as much as 350W being relatively cheap, but neither gets 18 amps on 12V rail... I think no power supply of that size has an output like that...think about a cheap but substancial chassis upgrade if you need that power...Have a look at directron for the PSUs.
I doubt you fried the motherboard
I would be taking my old power supply to the store where you purchased it to make sure they gave you the proper one.
Some power supplys do have that extra plug you may not need to plug it in at all
I can't see your motherboard to show you where to plug it in wish i could help more
Power supply fans rattle and vibrate when the fan bearing is worn out. They rattle even louder and harder when cool or cold, and quieten a little after warming up and expanding. I would get it out and seek a new one like it. From what you are saying, the computer is not a brand name, so it's probably a clown using standard power supply. take it out to the computer shop; they'll get you a new one. Fans can be changed but fan out is fan old is the rule.
