Question about Work Station 250W ATX POWER SUPPLY (= FSP-235-60GI) (FSP25060GI) Power Supply
I'm having trouble sourcing a psu for my Packard Bell Imedia 1308. The original unit ( FSP250-60GEN ) appears to have been superceded by other models. There seems to have been a problem with it being underpowered.The other FSP models on offer don't seem compatible i.e. physical size, screw fixing positions, no connector on back opposite power connector ( the FSP250-60GEN has a small mauve female connector point - for audio I think? )
I'd be most grateful if you could suggest some suitable alternatives.
Do you have the correct/original power supply, and it is having problems of some sort? If so, you might be able to do some repairs. A common problem is often one or more of the electrolytic capacitors is bad. Take the cover off, and look for bulged capacitors (top of the capacitor pushed up & out). If you find one or more of these, replacement may return the p/s to working order.
Please note in ATX power supplies, you have a standby and full power or main section. The standby portion powers just a small section of the motherboard to sense when the power button is pushed, and activate the main full power section. Obviously, the main section powers the full motherboard, drives, fans, etc.
I've seen several units where the standby section has one or more bad capacitors which will produce either a dead or slow to turn on computer.
Use a voltmeter and monitor the voltages. There are sites on the 'net with pinouts http://pinouts.ru/
Check here for further instructions http://www.fonerbooks.com/power.htm
As regards replacement capacitors: I use mostly the Panasonic FC series available from Digi-Key Electronics. Mouser Electronics also has suitable units. You want capacitors designed for switching power supplies.
Hope this helps you out.

I took my Packard Bell effort into PC World last week when my PSU blew, and they fixed it in an hour by replacing it with a similar PSU. When I got it home and started the PC up I noticed the new PSU did not have the purple DC female connector (which will power your speaker system), they also did not reconnect another soft touch keypad on my tower - presumably as the new PSU didn't have the leads off to connect to it. So back to PC World to **** them this weekend. Deano

My friend PSU is also dead. I have fitted a 350W atx psu and a 12V, 90x90x25 fan in the case. So far it appears to be holding out but I would like to get an original PSU replacement if I can. Where and how much would help please anybody. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.

Tips for a great answer:
you could download these to portable usb drive then install it to your computer
on the home page you should see the download software finder under that there will be a list platform, category sub category price from the category drop down list select drivers then from the price drop down list select free or which ever applies to your need click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down network adapters + expand Ethernet driver right click you will have options to update driver disable uninstall or select properties general you will have the options to troubleshoot or to update driver rollback or uninstall a yellow? ! question or exclamation mark or red x means you need to install/update driver right click to install driver
hope this helps
