Re: missing external converter

Hi, the best solution for your problem is to go to the manufactueres website, check their sales page and locate a dealer near you. If as I suspect thee PSU is like most others you will be better off buying a new case with power supply. I have found the difference is only a matter of a few dollars. Regards mistyman

Getting slight current in the case and its components

Sounds defective. If it's new or under warranty, have it replaced. If not buy a replacement.

These things are rarely user serviceable so unless you can find a worn wire or another reason for your short, there isn't much you can do.

The only thing to do at this point is to replace the Power Supply with a KNOWN to be good, compatible unit, and see if the rest of the computer hardware components are okay.

Going by your information stated that the Power Supply is an Enhance ENP-2224B SMPS, (Switched-Mode Power Supply), it is a special shape.

If it wasn't for the Slim Micro-ATX computer case you have, you could use an easy to obtain ATX form factor Power Supply.

From a quick search though it looks like a replacement unit is affordable,

There is simply no way to tell if the motherboard, and/or Processor, and/or Ram Memory, and/or Harddrive, etc., is okay without having power.
Unless you transfer the components on the motherboard to another working motherboard.

If your Power Supply has a rocker switch on the back that lets you use 120 volts, or 220 volts, make SURE it is set to the right voltage.

120 Volts
220 Volts
220 Volts
100 Volts ]

Seek replacement power supply unit to suit model ad 6008 ,wd elements external hard drive.

Either Ebay or Western digital are your best options for a replacement power supply.

However I might reccomend a new external enclosure as a more cost effective solution.

Prices are quite low and it may also allow you to put the drive in a better case.

Need physical dimensions of HEC HP585D 585W ORION HP585D ATX

No, given your old PSU's dimensions the HEC PSU would be too large. It sounds like you have a micro-ATX case.

XION Case and Supply

Try unplugging, then plugging back in the 20/24pin power connector. When you plug in the power connector, make sure the power supply is OFF and the switch in the back is OFF and nothing is plugged into the computer.

Another option you have, would be to purchase an external enclosure for the hard drive and it would then connect via USB cable. These enclosures are usually about $30, and the device works quite well as an external drive as long as you have USB 2.0

This would enable you to access all the information on that drive *and* you could use it as a backup drive for your main hard drive as well.

Good Luck!

E machine wont start

Here's something you can try: If you can borrow a computer power supply rated at 350 Watts or more from someone, do the following: Unplug your power supply from the motherboard. If it's an older model (pre-Pentium 4), there will be one wide (20-pin) white plastic connector. Along one of the long sides of the connector, there's a retaining latch. Squeeze it, and gently rock the connector from side to side along its length, while pulling up. The connector should come free. If it's a newer PC, there will be a second connector with 4 pins, and yellow and black wires. If so, squeeze its latch and just pull up on it. Next, disconnect the white power connectors from the optical drives, hard drive, and floppy drive. If the internal fan you talk about is a case fan, unplug it, too. At this point, you should be able to take all of the power cables and hold them out of the case.

Now, plug the power cables from the power supply you borrowed into all of the sockets you just vacated. The motherboard connection(s) have a little nub on one side; this lines up with the latch on the plug(s). The hard drive and optical drive connectors only fit one way. The floppy connection is wider on one long edge; this sits on a little shelf when the connector is plugged in. Plug in the case fan. Make sure the borrowed unit is not resting inside the case. Finally, plug the AC power cord into the socket on the borrowed power supply. You should now be ready to push the PC's power button. Do so.

If the PC boots fine, you have a bad/failing power supply installed in it. Sometimes they just don't have enough power to boot the motherboard when other accessories are also drawing power. If more accessories than those which came with the PC were added, this makes the problem worse.

If this works, you need to replace the original power supply. With your PC turned off and unplugged, remove the 4 screws holding the power supply to the back of the case. Lift the unit out. If you can keep the borrowed one, it's simple. Place it into your casr where you removed the original one (note the unit will fit two ways, but the screw holes only line up with one of them), line up the screw holes, and install/tighten the screws. Plug in the AC cord, and boot the PC up. If everything is okay, turn it off.

Since you're already inside the case, take some canned are and dust off the internals. Be especially sure to remove any dust between the processor's heat sink fins. Hold the processor fan with a finger to keep it from spinning.

Of course, if you CAN'T keep the borrowed unit, disconnect it as above, obtain a replacement, and repeat the installation/connection steps above.

Let me know if this works.
