look at the back of the pc ...around the fan u will see 4 srews, unsrew them to releas e the PSU unit, then unplug it from thr motherboard. check the connector that attahches to the motherboard to see if it is ATX or AT (most cases it will be ATX these days)- buy an ATX PSU and looking at the pin connectors on the motherboard replace the new PSU the same way as the pins are line up...ber in mind that if you reverse the pins you will not have no power coming through or you may initiate a short circuit that might blow your board up...BE CAREFUL - if in doubt ask a friend who has changed a PSU unit before and don't be shy- It will save you a lot of money

Usually a bad power supply, this is not user serviceable but you can buy replacement power supplies fairly cheaply you would just have to make sure it is the same size and type. If you can remove the power supply you could bring it to an electronics store to see if you could replace it. Or you can always oprder a replacement directly from HP though you may pay a bit more.
Hi, if your pc wont turn on at all. it means the power supply is bad. Depending on your model it could be an AT or an ATX power supply. You will have to take it to a repair shop so they can find the right one for you. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate and provide positive feedback

Power supply was probably nuked. You can get a replacement from ebay or usually a local computer repair shop. They go for around 20-35 for most "generic" power supplies. Unless you're a hardcore game or crazy you probably will just need an ATX power supply. Easiest thing to do is just take it down to a mom and pop computer place and have them sell you the right one.
ANYONE can replace it. It's just four screws to take it out, then just plug the cables back.
Some HP models use a proprietary power supply, if this is the case with your model then eBay is the place to get a replacement. Just match up the power supply model numbers and you're good to go.
A Blinking Amber or Yellow power button means that the power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Power supply is easier and cheaper to replace. Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided.

Quite possibly, the power supply may be damaged. Power failures sometimes cause surges in the line.
Power supplies are replaceable, however if you have a name brand computer, it may be difficult to obtain a replacement. Generic power supplies are inexpensive and fairly easy to change if you are handy. You did not list your make and model.
The power supply doesn't need to be mounted to anything. It's self contained. The replacement doesn't have enough juice: Sparkle FSP300-60GT = 300w atx93-3405 = 90w No way is the Astec going to run that PC. In fact, there are very few that it will. You will have to get a 300w or higher power supply for this to work.
