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
Nic

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!

Power supply specifications to replace it


The original power supply in your desktop is an industry standard unit, 220 watts. You can purchase a power supply online or at your local computer store like Best Buys. Most power supplies being sold now are 300-500 watts, but the dimensions are standad.
These should work.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

My computer went blank when turning it on


1) Computer isn't working, due to the Processor isn't working, due to a bad Power Supply.
Weak voltage power rail.

Enough power perhaps to light LED lights, and maybe spin fans, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

Computer Power Supply's are rated in Wattage.
Volts times Amperes = Watts.
(Average computer power supply in a fairly new computer, is rated at around 300 Watts)

A) ALL of the LED lights combined, use less than 1 Watt of power.
B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
C) A typical Processor may use 51 to 125 Watts.
Depends on what Processor it is.

Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail, can have enough power to light LED lights, spin fans, but not enough to turn the Processor on.

Solution?
Test the voltages of the Power Supply,

Or, use a KNOWN to be good Power Supply, that has the correct amount of power cables, the right kind of power cables, the correct size, and shape of the case, and enough Wattage, for a test unit..

A bad Power Supply is one of the leading causes of computer failure.

Need a new Iso-350


Please clarify? tennis rocket? industrial standard? switching power supply? safety glass panel? all of these are ISO-350...

I assume that you need new computer power supply, as this is just standard 350W switching power supply, this can be repalced by virtually any availbale on the market power supply as long as it is of same or greater value. Nobody is actually manufacturing 350W power supply, I would suggest any available computer power supply will do fine to replace that one.

Size of the power supply is standard, therefore it is irrelevant how many watt is your output as long as it is greater than 350W.

You can find abundance of 400W power supplies on e-bay in price from $0.99 + postage. Your local computer store will have them in stock, if you have access to second-hand computer, you can remove power from it and replace as well.

Hope this help solve your problem.

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.

HP Pavilion a1150y fans run when powered on but windows doesn't load, monitor, mouse and keyboard do not work. (Running Windows XP)


Believe it or not, it's due to a weak power supply. More specifically, weak voltage rail/s caused by failing Electrolytic Capacitors.

A bad computer power supply is about 70% of computer failure.

ALL the light use less than 1 Watt. EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

A processor uses 55 to 125 Watts. Depends on the make and model.

Since the power supply is weak, it doesn't have enough power to turn the processor on.
No processor, nothing to find the Boot record on the harddrive. Nothing to get the Operating System going. (Example: Windows XP)

No computer running, there is no signal to the monitor.
Just enough power to light lights, and spin fans.

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.
