That is a standard ATX power supply, so 95% of the aftermarket power supplies will work. Id suggest going to newegg.com and ordering one, very cheap there.

If I had to guess with the information provided I would say that your machine is currently underpowered. How large is your power supply unit on your HP? If that's the case a quick upgrade would fix your problem.

Why does my computer shut off by itself? it is a hp pavilion a305 pc desktop. we tried cleaning all the dust out but it didn't help


HP skimps on powers supplies which causes them to run at near-capacity and eventually fail. That case should accept a standard ATX supply but if buying on eBay (suggested-lots cheaper) check with seller for compatibility. Do NOT replace the old supply with the same power rating; choose one with 50% or greater capacity; i.e. replace 250W with 350-400W. It won't cost hardly any premium or use more power, just run under less stress.

Its not really a problem but i need to know how much watts my power supply has.


this VGA card requires about 250w under load. the HP PSU is unlikely to have enough power. get a good quality 450W or better unit

Upgrade Video Card


I would recommend picking up a higher watt power supply just to keep up with the changing demands on computers. They are not to do yourself. If still wondering what cards can go with a 300 watt power: Maybe an ATi Radeon 9250 256mb? It seems that a 350 watt power supply should still be minimum nowadays and they are cheap.
