I'd buy or build a Mini-ITX system. the mini-ITX boards run six volts and very low wattage. It can run off an internal M2 power supply directly off your battery. I'm running one in my car, right off the vehicles 12 volt power system. I'm using a 2.1Ghz processor with 1 Gig of RAM and 80 Gig laptop drive. By using a laptop drive, the computer runs completely off the 6 volt rail.

If you don't want to go with a laptop, Mini-ITX is probably the best way to go. You could try a Mac-mini if you want to go that route, it costs about the same and is about the same size. I preferred building my own though, cost me about $500 total with case and everything but display.

Nothing special about that Power Supply except for the PRICE!

It's just a regular ATX SMPS with a 575 Watt maximum rate wattage, and an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable.

The HP part number is HP 405349-001
I just THOUGHT the above model was expensive,

http://www.sears.com/hp-405349-001-hp-575watt-power-supply-for-workstation/p-SP101A9790S5492818201P

Uses one 24-pin ATX main power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

One 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#eps8

[NOTE*
NOT to be confused with the 8-pin PCI Express power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress8

Yellow wires are 12 Volt wires. Black wires are Ground (Negative) wires.
The 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable has FOUR 12 Volt wires.
The 8-pin PCI Express power cable has THREE 12 Volt wires ]

I believe 4 SATA power cables,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

,and a few 4-pin Peripheral power cables, ('Molex'),

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Power Supply case dimensions are approximately
6 Inches Wide, 5.5 Inches Long, and 3.5 Inches in Height.
(152.40mm Wide, 139.70 Long, and 88.89mm in Height )

36 Amps combined for the two 12 Volt power rails.
(12V1 = 18 Amps, 12V2 = 18 Amps)

This is an example of a replacement SMPS,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=899124&CatId=1483

I'm running one of these right now in a Dell Optiplex 745
Yes, even though the power cabling noted on the Tigerdirect ad is erroneous, it DOES have an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable.

One 24-pin ATX main power cable
Four 4-pin Peripheral power cables
Six SATA power cables
One Small 4-pin Peripheral power cable. (Used for a Floppy Drive, or a Card Reader)

Two 12 Volt power rails. 12V1 = 23 Amps, 12V2 = 20 Amps
Combined = 43 Amps on the 12 Volt power rail.

Repair?
Due to the possible electrocution hazard, I don't post info on repair.
I will state;
The capacitors need to be PROPERLY discharged, before attempting to work on the unit.
The Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors are the weakest link.


For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Gateway lx6810-01 will not boot up. Power to machine is good. Fans turn on. No post beeps. Help!


If you can open and get to the power supply look for any bad filter caps there, a outage and then power returns may have got one or more of them and if so you will be able to "see" this.

Well here is a way to check your power supply, on your hard drive connector using your volt meter and measuring from ground. this would be using one of two middle connectors it should measure +5 VDC on the red wire and + 12 VDC on the yellow wire. If these voltages are good then we got to see if the power supply is producing the -12VDC voltage. This voltage is ussed by the syustemboard on pin 14 of a 24 pin power supply. I would recommend not having your system board plugged in while measuring these votlages, but the power supply may need a load, I would plug in the cdrom.. Below are a couple of picture to explain this and a link to a website that has this documented.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html

dfish26_1.jpg The 24 pin main power connector was added in ATX12V 2.0 to provide extra power needed by PCI Express slots. The older 20 pin main power cable only has one 12 volt line. The new 24 pin connector added one line apiece for ground, 3.3, 5, and 12 volts. The extra pins made the auxiliary power cable unnecessary so most ATX12V 2.x power supplies don't have them. The 24 pin connector is polarized so it can only be plugged in pointing in the correct direction.

My computer just stoped working. It wont power on and when I hold the power button there is just a blue flashing light


Bad Power Supply.
Weak Voltage power rail.

The Pavilion a6000n desktop computer uses an ATX style of power supply, and is rated at 300 Watts.
(Probably made by Delta Electronics)

The ATX style of Power Supply is used in over 85 percent of PC's. Very common unit.

[Case size is approximately 6 inches Long, 6 inches Wide, and 3-1/2 inches Tall ]

What you are looking for is an ATX power supply with at Least 300 Watts, and the correct power cables.

Note that a computer only uses the power it needs, and No more.

Wouldn't matter if you had a 10,000 Watt Power Supply, (Exaggeration), and the computer only needed 100 Watts, it will only use 100 Watts.

(Surfing the internet typically uses 100 Watts.
Computer. Monitor uses it's own power, and is separate from this figure)

This is HP Support > Pavilion a6000n desktop computer > Specifications,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00873231&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3377269&lang=en

This is HP Support > Pavilion a6000 desktop computer > Motherboard Specifications,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00906129&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3377269&lang=en

1) Scrolling down the page, and looking at the photo of the motherboard, you can tell the Power Supply must have a 24-pin ATX main power cable.

To the right of the Blue, and Black ram memory slots is the 24-pin ATX main power cable connector, on the motherboard.

It is White in color, and consists of 2 rows of 12 socket holes.
24 total.

On the illustration it is marked as - ATXPOWER.

This is a closer look at a typical 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

Note the Lock on the side of the connector. The Lock is hinged in the middle, (Plastic), and operates like a see-saw on a playground.

Squeeze the top of the Lock in to remove the 24-pin ATX main power cable.
ONLY gently pull up on the connector, and NOT the wires.

[This action brings the hooked end of the Lock away from a 'Bump', or protrusion, that is present on the female connector, on the motherboard ]

2) The Power Supply must also have a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable.

On the illustration where it states Socket AM2 is the Processor socket.

To the left, and down a little of the Processor socket, is a blank square.
The writing under it is illegible.

This is where the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable plugs in.

On the motherboard photo it is to the left of the white Processor socket, and is square in shape, with four socket holes.

This is a better look at a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, and it's respective connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

Color of the plastic used in the connectors, does not matter.

3) Looking at the Specifications page, you will see that the Power Supply must have at least 1 SATA power cable.
It's used for the 250GB SATA harddrive.

Closer look at a SATA power cable, and it's respective connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

NOTE*
If the SATA harddrive in your computer has a place for a SATA power cable, and a 4-pin Peripheral power cable, ONLY use the SATA power cable.
DO NOT use both.

4) Again looking at the Specifications page, the Power Supply must have at least two, 4-pin Peripheral power cables.
Used for the optical drives.
(DVD drives)

A closer look at a 4-pin Peripheral power cable, and it's respective connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

There may be more 4-pin Peripheral power cables needed, to run any computer case fans.

[The Processor fan plugs into the motherboard ]

LCD tv issue


at error code is 12 and it is your 12-volt supply. Measure from the inverter to the power supply for 24 volts pins 1,2 and 3. If you don't have the 24 volts disconnect the inverters from the power supply and see if the volts come up. If the 24 volts come up replace the inverters. If the 24 volts are still not there replace the power supply. The volts have to be steady and not going up and down if they are replace the power supply.
But if the 24 volts are there with the inverters connected 1M03 pin 3 for 3.2 volts. If the 3.2 volts are not there replace the small signal board. The only way to get a manual is to find it on line or call the manufacture.
