Re: antec by apc hookup ?

The phone company can take it out for you and put in DSL, you can do it your self if you know what to do. I would take it out and go to home depo and get the dsl parts and wire, you need to have a lot to run thou the walls. The phone company maybe your best way, if you have any friends that know anything about running dsl wire this would be your cheepest way out.

Re: antec by apc hookup ?

I have one of these devices - it was installed by the cable company (Charter) as part of the equipment that lets charter carry my phone service. It is a battery backup for the line so that when power goes out you dont lose your telephone. Your regular phone wires dont require external electricity to work, but cable companies do. And people like being able to make a phone call to report a power outage for example.

If you dont use your cable company as your local telephone provider, you should be fine removing it.

Hi, in Antec 300watt power supply there is 3 cables or input or current 220volt. The cables are Black, Green and white. Which one is earth, which on is live(positive) and which one is negative?

For 120 volt operation use
black for the hot, White for the natural, Green for earth ground.
For 240 volt operation use;

Black and White for the 240 volt and Green for earth ground.
Black is generally designated as the "Hot" or "positive" .
You must make sure the switch on the power supply is set for the voltage you are using. ie: 120/240

Antec smps or corsair smps to buy

I love Corsair power supplies, but in this case I would go with the Antec TruePower TP-II 430. That particular Antec model is the best in it's class.

I bought a HP 6710f Pavillion desktop, running windows 7, and found out it only has a 250 watt power supply. I turned around and bought an Antec Greenwatts 500 watt ATX 12v v2.3 psu to install for future...

Presuming you mean the Earthwatts 500:
Should work, though the Earthwatts has the 24 pin ATX instead of the 20-pin.
You just need to snap the 24-pin connector apart to make it work as a 20-pin. It can be snapped back together for future motherboards.
The Bestec is just a standard ATX power supply

Where can I find power supply for HP model ATX300-12ZBD

There are lots of ATX power supplies on the market. You do not need to use a HP 300 watt power supply. Just purchase one that suit your requirements - 300 watt or more. These power supplies have standard mounting holes.

Where to buy a Antec AR300

You should ebay or just put the model number in Google. Let me suggest that while the fan may be going out, the heatsink will still be ok. You should open up the fan box and see what size of fan is in there. I believe it looks like a 120mm fan. You can buy a nice one for under $20 and it'll go right in without you even having to remove the unit from the motherboard.

(I have Antec Phantom 500) when I turn on my computer it turns on for about a split second and it goes off ..

Most likely the power supply but it could be the motherboard.

Do you see anything on the screen when it comes on?
