Curvey, You tell me. LOOK at the back of the LCD monitor and tell me if you see a recessed rectangular hole with three big pins in a kinda triad position that will be the same as that which is on a full size desktop PC and connects the pc to the wall outlet or power strip. If you can't find one (top, bottom,side,)anywhere, then you need a lay on floor BLACK-BRICK ac to dc converter power supply that will fit into some hole on the monitor via a 3-4 pin connector that looks nothing like the ac line input connector on the PC. Hope this helped you out. Don't electrocute yourself!!! please rate this response on fixya. louie12fix on fixya. Bye.

How to install a power supply


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Unplug all electronic cords connected to the computer. At no time during the installation should any cords be connected to the computer. Remove the screws holding the computer cover case, and remove the cover case. Locate the computer power supply box, which looks like a large box out of which a bundle of wires run and connects to the power cord jack on the outside of the computer case. Unplug the power cables from the internal devices connected to it. Be careful not to damage any of the sensitive control boards or devices inside the computer, and be certain to remember--write it down if you need to--what devices will need reconnecting to the new power supply when you finish the installation. Unscrew the power supply from the inside of the computer case and remove it. Check the original power supply's red voltage switch for the correct setting. It should read 120 or 240 if you live within the United States. Confirm this setting as the correct voltage setting for your power outlets. Make sure your new power supply gets set to the correct voltage setting before you install it. If it cannot be set to the correct voltage, do not proceed with the installation or you may damage your computer. Return the new power supply and buy one that is compatible with the voltage requirements. Install the new power supply, reattach the screws that will hold it in the proper place inside the computer. Reattach the power cables that come from the new power supply to the devices that were connected to the old power supply. Make sure all of these connections are firmly in place before you turn the computer back on. Reattach the computer power cables and all the cords connected to the computer during normal operation, but do not close the computer case yet. Keep your hands clear of the inside of the computer case as you attach power cords and peripheral devices. Turn the computer on and observe the performance of the computer without touching anything inside. Do all the computer fans function normally? Does the computer operate as well as or better than before? If you feel that the computer behaves normally and you do not encounter any problems, turn the computer off, remove all the power cords and peripheral cables once more, and close the computer case. Then reattach the power cords and peripheral cables and begin using the computer. Check for errors if you encountered any problems starting the computer or if it would not start at all, unplug all the power cords and computer cables connected to the computer and look inside. Make sure that you connected all the correct power cables inside the computer securely and did not miss any. If you have confirmed this and the computer still doesn't start or operate normally, call your computer manufacturer or a professional computer repair shop for assistance completing the installation http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvClS_M-09o&feature=watch_response_rev watch video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0udZ0Ky4Pk Hope this helps.

Power pack light red


Hello, let's try a few things. First I would try to unplug the cables at all points. The wall, unit and power block in the middle. Reconnect and see if that helped.Be sure the unit is straight to the outlet and NOT to a surge protector or power supply or extension cord.
If not, I would try to plug the unit into another outlet somewhere. In a different room or something. Be sure the unit is straight to the outlet and NOT to a surge protector or power supply or extension cord. If that works, it's clearly the outlet in the original spot.
If none of these solutions help, if possible, see if you can borrow someone else's power supply and give it a try. If it works, then you know for sure that's all you need to replace. If it still doesn't work, you may have an internal power issue and will need a repair.

Xbox 360 not powering up at all. power supply light blinks orange


An orange light is illuminated on the power supply for one of the following reasons:

* The console is turned off.
* The power supply is disconnected from the console.
* The power supply cord is not fully inserted into the power socket of the console.
* The power supply is faulty.
* The console is faulty. (The console might be faulty if it does not turn on when the power supply light is orange.)


The power supply has several built-in safeguards to help prevent damage to either your Xbox 360 console or the power supply itself. The power supply will automatically turn off if either the current flow, the voltage, or the temperature is too high. When the power supply turns off for any of these reasons, the light on the power supply will turn from green (normal) to orange or to red, or the light will turn off. When the power supply light is green, the power supply is working correctly. What you are experiencing is an over heating issue, that may have damaged the supply.

With that being said, i would try to reset the supply by disconnecting the unit from the console, and unplugging the power supply unit from the wall socket for 5 minutes. Once the 5 minutes have passed, reconnect the unit to the console, and plug the power supply into the wall socket. If the console dose not power up, and the supply unit is still showing an orange illuminated operating light, this will confirm that the power supply unit will need to be replaced. Contact Microsoft for the correct replacement parts needed(power supply unit)


TIPS FOR PREVENTING OVERHEATING ISSUES

* Do not block any ventilation openings in the power supply.
* Do not put the power supply on a bed, on a sofa, or on any other soft surface that might block ventilation openings.
* Do not put the power supply in a confined space, such as a bookcase, a rack, or a stereo cabinet, unless the space is well ventilated.
* Do not put the power supply on a stereo speaker, an amplifier, or a heat source such as a radiator or a heat register.
* Do not use an unlicensed accessory, such as a replacement power supply that was not manufactured by Microsoft, or any accessory that plugs in between the Xbox 360 console and the power supply.
* Plug the power supply directly into a working wall outlet. You may have problems with the power supply if you use an extension cord or a power strip if the extension cord or the power strip is faulty or cannot supply the required power to the console.
* If you are not sure about the reliability of an AC power outlet, power circuit, or power cabling, do not use it. Contact an electrician.
