If it's a standard ATX case, then any power supply is compatible.
equal or higher power output is fine.
so a 500w will still only use the power needed by the hardware.

FIRST IF YOU REPLACED THE POWER SUPPLY OF YOUR DELL PC,
MAKE SURE IS A RECOMMEND POWER SUPPLY FOR DELL COMPUTERS ONLY
BECAUSE DELL USE A DIFFERENT (NONSTARD) PS

AN PLEASE DON'T TURN YOUR PC ON, TILE YOU ARE SURE I'TS A DELL COMPATIBLE POWER SUPPLY
YOU CAN FRY YOUR COMPUTER

ON THE MOTHERBOARD I'T MAY BE THE BIOS (BIOS STANDS FOR INPUT /OUTPUT SYSTEM) I'T A CHIP ON YOUR MOTHERBOARD THAT CONTROLS THE SYSTEM HARDWARE AND ACTS AS AN INTERFACE BETWEEN THE OPERATING SYSTEM AND THE HARDWARE
I'T MAY BE FLASH
IF IS FLASH ,
YOU PROBABLY NEED TO REPLACE THE MOTHERBOARD
OR CALL DELL TO SEE IF THEY CAN FIX IT

SOURCE: Compatibility of PCI-EXpress card for Dell GX280 (Small Dextop)

So if this is a slimline pc you are kind of limited in upgrade options
space being the biggest , then being followed with cooling ability, the best advice I can give you if specs say 350 is needed i wouldn't chance having the card pull more of a load off of the PSU than what is rated for it. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Dell Optiplex GX280 Video Card Install Problem

You hit that one right on the dot.  ATI website showed the specs for that graphics card you installed as needing a 300 Watt power supply.  Good news though... I researched newegg.com and I believe I found your 300W power supply.  There are 4 different Optiplex gx280 designs with 4 completely different power supplies.  Since you bought the low-profile video card, I believe you have the slim computer case and this power supply should work for you...

Check all of the electrical connections to all devices in the machine, especially the motherboard. Many times this is a result of a poor connection being jarred loose during a move.

Power button on dell 5000 flashing amber


***I'm pretty sure your power supply is dead, you will either #1 take to repair shop or #2 replace it yourself.

The Best Value 550W Gold PSU 12cm 24-Pin 550 PSU is compatible.

The Corsair Memory 550W VX PSU is compatible and Corsair is an excellent brand, but you may have an issue locating the excess power connectors inside the case.

The Xilence XP480-12R Power 480W Quiet PSU would be fine, providiing the "hard drive connectors:2', are 4-pin Molex connectors.

No, if you attempt that then your computer with either not work because of video card errors, or it will boot up and run for a couple hours and then the graphics card will most likely melt due to insufficient power to the fan. Your best bet is to return the video card and buy a video card that is compatible, or buy a new power supply with the connections that you require.

Does the T2893 have to have an ATX power supply specifically for the emachine? I tried to upgrade to logisys 480w supply and the fans and a few lights come on, but the unit won't boot up.


there are TWO different power cables on the new machines. (not just two parts to the ATX)

one is the ATX like you are used to.

The other is a small four-prong plug (coming off of the power supply - look for yellow and black wires) find the matching receptacle on the motherboard.

good luck

Alienware HPC-420-302 DF power supply died


You can replace the power supply same rating or over. Be sure to check if you have 24pin or 20 pin. If you are running a gaming video card , its better to buy 600watts power supply.
