Good that you are careful about the upgrade.
However you can upgrade your powersupply with a higher wattage rating without any problem. Increased wattage power supply does not fry or harm your system. The only thing that you should be careful before you buy the new power supply is its compatibility with the existing cabinet / case that you have.

Thank you for using Fixya.com

I don't think you can upgrade your power supply, because of the case cofiguration and if there is a bigger supply I think 300 watts is still safe

How can I find out how many watts my System Model DA238A-ABA 6450NX NA910 use in 1 hour? (compaq prisario)


Compaq Presario 6450NX Desktop PC?

Power Supply - 200 Watts

That is the supposed Maximum Wattage the computer will use per hour.

Variables come in to play, however;

1) Back when the computer was made, the Power Supply manufacturers were 'fudging' the real maximum rated Wattage.

True ratings were more like 60 to 70 percent, of what was actually stated.

Divide 200 by ten; take it times;
6 for 60 percent. 120 Watts
7 for 70 percent. 140 Watts

So, the Actual Maximum Rate Wattage, could be as little as 120 Watts, or a little more than a 100 Watt light bulb.

2) Second variable is what is the computer being used for?
Surfing the internet? About 100 Watts.

Playing an intensive game, (Yeah right. Not on that computer), or using an intensive program?
Then, you may be using the Maximum rated Wattage,
120 to 140 Watts.

So,........the hourly wattage rating, could be as low as 100 Watts per hour, or perhaps up to 120 to 140 watts per hour.

Also include the power used by the monitor.
If you do not have the specifications of the monitor, see if you can look them up online.

My HP 2009M uses 47 Watts, (2 Watts when in Sleep Mode),

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824176112

My other monitor I use (Dual monitors), is an RCA 26 inch HDTV,
(RCA L26HD31)

Uses 82 Watts,

http://reviews.cnet.com/flat-panel-tvs/rca-l26hd31/4507-6482_7-33346932.html

(And the power supply for my computer is 500 Watts.
Hmmm,............no wonder the little wheel spins so fast in my electric meter! lol!)

Add the two together to get a basic conclusion, of what Wattage per Hour your computer system is using.
Don't forget to include printer/scanner/fax machine/copier, WHEN being used.

Can i run new ati radeon 512mb video memory with 5.0 shader card on acer ACER AST690-U-P925A


1) How much Ram Memory do you have installed? If I have the spec's right, your motherboard's maximum amount of Ram Memory is 2GB.
(PC2-5300 would be best, but the amount is what matters, not the 'speed')

2) What is the Maximum Wattage for your Power Supply?
Takes power for each hardware component in the computer.
Motherboard, Processor, Ram Memory, Harddrive, Optical Drive/s, Graphics Card, etc.

When purchasing a graphics card, this is one of the minimum system requirements you need to know.

Spec's I looked up indicate a 300 Watt power supply.
This is the problem. That, and power supply's Acer uses are low quality.

If you had at least a 400 Watt power supply, you could use this,

Slap that game around, and make it bark.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3276573&CatId=1483

You could also run this if you had the above Power Supply,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2048679&Sku=M452-7770

[Note*
No. It does not matter if you are using DDR2 Sdram ram memory, and the graphics card has GDDR5 graphics memory.
A graphics card runs independent of the system resources.
(Processor and Ram Memory ]

Want to know power consumption of a hpsr5410f


The HP Pavilion w1907, 19 inch Widescreen monitor, RK283AA,
uses 49 Watts in operating mode, 2 watts in sleep mode.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00916924&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3351967

The Compaq Presario SR5410F Desktop PC, has a 250 Watt power supply. (Maximum wattage rating )

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01374067&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3686678

Theoretically.

Back in the day when this computer was made, Power Supply manufacturers were 'fudging' a bit on the truth.

(HP has their Power Supply's made by another company.
Bestec, HiPro, and Delta, are three of them )

Actual wattage is more like 60 to 70 percent, of what is stated.
250 divided by 10 = 25.
25 times 6 = 150 (60 percent)
25 times 7 = 175 (70 percent)

Your Power Supply's actual maximum rated wattage, may be as low as 150 Watts!

Going with the Power Supply produces a maximum of 250 Watts;

If you are playing an intense game, or have several programs running at once, you MAY reach using 250 Watts.

Just surfing the internet? About 100 Watts.

Desktop PC plus Monitor:
1) Surfing Internet: 149 Watts, or let's just say - 150 Watts

2) Computer is maxed out running hard?
249 Watts, or let's just say 300 Watts.

Voltage times Amperage = Wattage
Wattage divided by Voltage = Amperage

Number 1 above? About the power it takes to use a 100 Watt light bulb, and a 50 Watt light bulb. (Incandescent)

Number 2? About the power it takes to run three 100 Watt light bulbs.
(Incandescent)

Suddenly my inverter connected lights stopped working, i went and saw what happened to my inverter, everything was fine in terms of lights that it indicates in normal conditions, only i saw a fuse was...


The most likely reason is that you tried to draw more power than it was capable of supplying. The maximum amount the inverter can supply is usually measured in watts and should be written on it. If the inverter can supply 60 watts it should in theory be able to operate a 60 watt bulb. In practice however if you draw the maximum that the inverter can supply it will cause something to give. You should use no more than 45 watts from a 60 watt inverter i.e. approx three quarters of the rated watts.

You need a Power Supply Unit (PSU) tester which you can get from Ebay or shops like maplins.

TIP - never turn on a PSU without at least one drive attached to it, the power surge on the first turnon can fry the PSU unless it has at least one hard drive or cd drive plugged into it.

No you don't. If you think the power supply is bad, then unplug it, unscrew it, and take it to a discount place like Fry's to simply match it. Compaq does not make its own power supplies, so they use generic ones, like everyone else does. The only thing you have to choose is how many watts you need. The original may have been rated too small if it went bad, and you many want one with more power, like 500 watts.

Sounds like a power supply issue. Replace it and it should work. If not then the motherboard is the problem.

HP Pavilion 250 watt PSU that includes a Nvidia GeForce 9300


The maximum output of a PSU simply means it is able to supply a certain amount of power. It can also deliver anything under the wattage. Where you fry things is where the connectors are wrong. HP, COmpaq, Dell, IBM have all, at times, used nonstandard connectors in their PCs. If you take something with a standard connector, and use it in a machine where that connector needs to nonstandard, you can fry stuff.
