Re-check the regulator. and i think the problem is in secondary. also check the resistor that supply 12-18V
on the regulator.

Turn on the computer nothing happen then smell burning from the power supply! turned off right away.

That power supply is probably dead. try your motherboard witha known-to-be-good power supply to determine if your system has survived. IN my experience the failrate for antec sp450 watt psu is close to 40% over 4 years (300 pc:s at university), so there is a high probability that your psu is unrecoverable.

There is, but I would NOT recommmend an untrained user to do it as it can be dangerous.
If you want to know you can unplug the PSU from the PC and short out a specific connector pin (green) with a paper clip, this causes the PSU to turn on and the fans spin.
If that works it usually means the PSU is OK.
But I repeat I would suggest NOT doing this unless you really know what you are doing and take the proper precautions as shorting the wrong pins can be very dangerous.
The best way is to borrow a spare PSU and try it or buy a cheap generic one just to try that out.

No Power

Hi, remove your power supply from the case, onen it and remove all dust from it. Inside you should see a glass fuse, if tis is blown replace it and all should be ok.
If the fuse is intact test it with a multi meter, [this can also be done across a light and wires with a battery] If you find the fuse intact and still have no power then replace the PSU with any simalar watt unit. The only brand I would advise against is Ritmo as these are not a high quality PSU. There are quite a range of brand names which can be purchased on Ebay.

Psu for compaq presario 6031CL

hi there, you should be able to purchase a 400 watt ATX power supply from any pc part retailer, even better, buy it off the net, its usually cheaper. 99% of supplys be they the old AT (mostly obsolete now) or ATX will fit like a glove. Best of luck and I hope this helps...

Power supply does not fit!

OK most PSU's are the same.. by that I mean as long as the output & connections match, then the size & shape don't really matter. On the PSU somewhere will be a "Wattage" rating say 250Watt... whatever.. simply obtain a standard (Usually 350Watt) PC Power Supply Unit (PSU)of the SAME or HIGHER Wattage rating & also ensuring the Mating Connector onto the MotherBoard is the same... ya be all good..
