That mean you have bought the wrong PSU.

Return the new one, when you are at the store you purchased it from, ask them for a Micro ATX PSU, that is the kind you need.

The only other thing you will need to know is how many watts you want it to be, a decent one would be 400-550 watts

Does a solid green light mean the power supply is ok when disconnected from motherboard and drives, ATX-300-12Z


Not necessarily. The green light usually just signifies power to the power supply. Amazon sells a cheap power supply tester that can verify everything on a power supply from old to new.

The pc wont power up and the green led on the PSU is just flashing, is the bestec atx 250 12z broken?


Most likely yes.

I would also reccomend an upgrade to that PSU when replacing it.

Something in the 450-Watt neighborhood is usually a bit more robust.

Power supply upgrade

What is the p7 connector on a atx-1956-d for? the upgraded power supply has no provision for this connector? help please!!!!!!!!! gjohannsen@verizon.net


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.

Or do I not understand you. Do you have one less, or one too many?

Bestec atx-250-12z rev d hp model 5187-1098 pc will not start up when pushing button on front of machine green led on back of p/s flashes with power cord plugged in. does this indicate a p/s failure?


I have already replaced mant Bestec ATX-250-12E power supplies because they have an internal failure. Consider yourself lucky if the thing doesn't power up your computer because it has a problem of imposing the +12 volt line onto the +5 Volt line then blowing out the mother board. Sometimes you aren't so lucky because once the damage is done then it is to late to just simply replace that piece of junk. I was lucky with my daughters E-Machine because if she tried pressing the start switch on the front of her computer it would sometimes come on and sometimes not. She just mentioned this to me and I immediately replaced that Bostec ATX-250-12E before it could do any damage to her computer. If anyone has an older E-Machine or an older Gateway machine then it would be a good idea to see if it uses that Bostec-ATX-250- 12E. If it does then go order another power supply, anything but a Bostec, and instead of a 250 watt order a 300 watt or better. I hope that this has helped those that might have this problem before it destroyes *********** boards. Marty

Upgrade for Bestec ATX-1956D (HP p/n: 0950-4106)


How about the LC Power LC350M Micro ATX - 380 Watt

or the 

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.
