Is there a higher wattage PSU for D530 SFF?

Hello,

Is there a higher wattage PSU replacement for the D530 185W PSU, so that this pentium 4 PC will run better and stop blowing power supplies?

Lenovo desktop PC Power supply probems after changing voltage setting from 230V - 115V


If your country uses 240V mains then flicking the switch to 115V bypassed a voltage divider and probably blew the fuse in the power supply. If you are comfortable working with mains voltage, you can pop the PSU open and check the fuse. If it's blown then just get another one with the EXACT same ratings and you should be up and running again.

If it's not the fuse then you have bigger problems and it's time to replace the PSU. Any PSU should work as long as the wattage is the same as the original or higher.

Also, you could call Lenovo to see if the PC is under warranty. If so, the PSU is probably a user replaceable part, meaning they will send you a new one to put in and you just send the old one back.

Is a 500w power supply to much for my pc?


wattage is a measurement of power output. however wattage is not nececassrily a measure of continuous power output. wattage is a measurement of potential power output. this means on one hand if a pc is only idling the wattage of the power supply unit (psu) required to run the components might be very low. on the other hand if you have several power intensive applications running simultaneously with several different web browsers open featuring several active tabs open in each browser and you are also streaming video on the internet on one browser and downloading files while watching a movie all at the same time then the pc would probably be working near its maximum and would require near the maximum amount of available wattage from the psu. a certain amount of the psu's wattage is needed to power each of the key power consuming internal components - the cpu, the memory, the motherboard chipset and other motherboard devices, any expansion cards installed on the motherboard as well as the spinning of the hard drive, optical drive and cooling fans. the total wattage required to power all these and other internal components is an indications of the very bare total minimum power capacity that a pc will require. this means that generally the higher the wattage of the psu the more stable the overall performance of the computer islikely to be. the psu also consumes as well as delivers power due to the in-built cooling fans required to cool it by venting hot air from the back of the pc during operation. therefore as a general rule the higher the wattage of the psu, the greater the capacity of the psu to take the powering of all the internal components of the pc that require power (including the psu's own cooling fans) well within its stride.

so your friend was correct to draw your attention to the important issue of the optimisation of power consumption in a pc and ensuring that you have the correct wattage of psu to adequately and safely power the internal components of the pc. however your friend has slightly misunderstood how the psu works.

perhaps you could explain to this friend that a pc with an underpowered psu is far more likely to damage a pc's internal components than a pc with a psu of excessive wattage. In this way, both of you will have helped to enhance each other's knowledge and awareness of an important issue in the maintenance of a pc.

Hi

This seems like a power management problem on the motherboard.

Disconnect the power cable. Remove the small silver CMOS battery for 2 minutes to clear the BIOS Memory. Reinstall the battery and reconnect the power.

Look carefully at the power lines coming from the Power Supply Unit (PSU) and make sure that no one power channel is powering an unequal load of devices. Try and divide the load as evenly as possible amonst the power lines.

If none of this solves the problem, then consider upgrading the fitted 300W PSU to one with a higher Wattage, as 300W is on the low side for current standards. 450W-500W is more typical nowadays. The higher the Wattage you can afford (up to a 650W maximum for this particular specification of PC) the better

A higher wattage PSU will work well within its capacity and therefore under less strain than the current one. The symptoms you describe could be signs of the current PSU straining at the limits of its performance range to power all the devices inside as well as maintaining the computer's heavy workload of interaction with all the devices connected to it.

I hope this helps.

OK, this is a fairly common problem. It should be an easy fix.
The PSU inside ya Case should have a "Wattage" printed clearly on alabel, perhaps 300Watts 500Watts, whatever, get any suitable PSU that has the same or higher specs, and that fits the screw patterns.
Check the Fan in the PSU... if it is NOT spinning when the Power button is pressed, or at least sorta "Pulse" at switch on, the odds on ya PSU is kaput. First remove all PSU connections EXCEPT for the Motherboard one and see if it will power up, if so, the turn off and reconnect each device in turn and check, IF after ya connect a device and it win't start then THAT is ya faulty bit, replace. If not, then ya gonna have to replace the PSU.
Generally, ALL PSU are the same with a few exceptions.
I generally Plug it all in B4 I actually "Button it up". To prove it was the PSU, as, sometimes it is something faulty, causing the PSU to NOT start up.
Replacement is easy. You simply carefull remove all the power Conns from Motherboard, Drives, DVD etc. then remove the 4 screws holding the PSU. Then install the replacement, reverse order.

Can you put a 300 watt power supply into an emachine T1096


I would recommend a quality PSU that is rated at least 50% more than what your PC specs are. Having said that, this machine will accept 300W PSU, being the bare minimum, but the preferred PSU is 350 - 450 for a longer more stable use.

It also depends on what ancilliary devices you have and the power they need to operate.

The only other issue is if the cabling is appropriate, which it should be. But this is only guessing as I can't see it.

Recommended psu wattage inreplacement to 300watts psu for asusp4p800s-x


the needed wattage is directly linked to the componets you want to use other then the mobo itself. the main power surges are the CPU (takes 40 to 110 Watts) a graphics card (from 5 to over 150 Watts) the Drives (about 25-30 Watts eachs), the RAM and all the other addons and gadgets you build into your PC. Just add the different Wattages together and give it quiet some headroom. I usually drive this kinds of mobos with 400-550 Watts PSU to be on the save side, if i use a more or less "standard" graphics card, and even more with high sophistcated cards or lots of drives or such.

if you "see" low power (Volts) it might also be a problem with a partwise defective PSU.

It never hurts to have a larger power supply, yes it have use 100watts more in a hour. But you should have better reliability with the 450W.
