Re: weak power supply
WHAT???...dont listen to sanvaish!
YES YOU CAN! no problem att all!
Just because you changeing from 220WATT to 350WATT it dosent mean that you getting higher VOLTAGE..higher VOLTAGE will burn your motherboard bot NOT higher WATT
By geiting higher WATT you can connect more hadrware to your motherboard, hardware that maybe needs a lot of power.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

most power supplies have a switch for 120 and or 220 options just move the switch to what setting you want. most power supplies can be used as a stand a lone power supply, if not than you need to request for a 220 watt power supply the can be used as a stand alone for pc or computer use. most computer retail should have them in stock. look on line or at www.fryselectronics.com/computer/parts/power_supple/stand-a-lone/for_PC_use/220_watts/

I had an Emachines W3609 that did the same thing, I changed the 350-watt power supply with a 550-watt and it still shut off, even using the newer one. I thought just the first one was bad but I guess not. It had more than enough power to power it up but nothing. And it used to randomly restart at times and then just shut off. Try and get a new hard drive maybe that will help. Good luck!
200 watt would mean it is a few years old so it could eb a few things. Power supplies can be prone to heat damage if never cleaned out. It's cooling fan gets plugged up just like your cpu fan. The ehat will kill off weak parts.
Generally what fails on these are the big power transistors (mosfets) and sometimes the power capacitors. Easy to replace if you can solder. There is also a fuse on the board that sometimes goes out. If you can't solder then its not really worth trying to fix as a new power supply is so cheap. You can find a 350 or 400 watt for about $20 brand new.
Based from your comments, a new steam shower that blows the fuse in five minutes. You could have installed a new steam shower that is much bigger than what you previously have. 1. For a 5000 watts steam shower at 220 volts power must have a fuse rating of 40 amps, supply wires of at least No. 6 AWG Type THW ; and at 110 volts a fuse rating of 80Amps, supply wires of at least No. 2 AWG type THW. 2. For a 4000 watts at 220 volts, Fuse: 30 amps, Supply wire: No. 10 AWG type THW. At 110volts 60 amps, Supply wires : No. 4 AWG Type THW 3. For a 3000 watts at 220 volts, Fuse: 20 amps Supply wire: No. 10 AWG type THW; At 110volts Fuse: 40 amps, Supply wire: No. 6 AWG THW 4. For a 2000 watts at 220 volts, Fuse: 15 amps Supply wire: No. 10 AWG THW and at 110 volts Fuse: 30 amps, Supply wire: No, 8 AWG THW
Changing out power supplies is not that difficult task. Upgrading to a 550 Watt power supply would be a good idea because it will give you more power than you need at the moment. You can google the power supply with the word problems with it and see what comes up. The main thing to be sure of when selecting a new power supply is to make sure that you get one with the appropriate connectors for your hard drive, motherboard and processor. For example if you have a SATA Hard drive then you will need a PSU that has SATA power connectors. Most newer power supplies (PSU) have these. The box should list what connectors it has.
