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.

SO go ahead!, change it! no problem at all M8!

Good luck

My e machine computer will just shut off after 5 or 10 min.,

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!

My 1HP160 watt desktop psu went bad. Should I replace it with the same thing or is there something else in a higher wattage that is compatible?

Yes most PSU's are standard fittings. Certianly with HP. 160 watt is a very low spec look at 350 watt at least. Cheap enough to replace.

    I am using AOpen 200-Watt Power Supply, suddenly, it has a problem: No power output. Maybe any diot is broken? How to dectect and replace it?

    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.

    Just installed new steam shower, it produces steam for about 5 minutes and then blows the fuse

    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

    My PC just stopped showing anything on the screen but looked to be working so I replaced the Video card still no good I have replaced the Motherboard, CPU, Power box, and now it just starts to boot then...

    You've replaced quite a bit. I'm figuring that your monitor was OK when you replaced the video card. If your PC has on-board video, it needs to be disabled in the BIOS before inserting a video card..

    Then, reinstall the old 450W power supply to see if there is any change.

    If still a problem, I would suggest testing the memory. Test one module at a time to see which is faulty.

    Hope this helps.

    I have a Gateway 510xl and would like to upgrade the power supply

    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.
