Suitable psu for packard bell istart 1359

Hi
Please help. I cant get a straight answer to this question ; will a standard power supply fit my desktop pc? Info at http://www.packardbell.co.uk/products/at-home/desktops/istart/istart-1359/productsheet-PB49300701-802.html
I was thinking of buying a Corsair 550watt VX Series PSU.
I have upgraded to 1.5gb of ddr2 400/533, 2banks, single channel ram and have fitted a Sapphire Radeon HD 2600 PRO ddr2 512mb AGP graphics card. My current power supply is 250watt from the FSP Group inc. Model no. FSP250-60HEN, p/n 6983860000( cant find it on their website but it is mentioned on other forums ).
P.S. The number on the motherboard is different to that on the Packard Bell product sheet, it is P5VDZ-NVM/S.
Hope you can help.
Bob

Dera Telxon,

The PSU you have linked is FSP250-50LPU - which is not the one in question.

Thanks and regards,

    The straight answer is: YES.

    "from Packard Bell

    Quote:




    Although ATX power supplies conform to various specification
    guidelines, there is not, unfortunately, a standard ATX power supply.
    To find a suitable replacement power supply for your machine, we would
    recommend that you have the following information to hand when making
    your purchase:


    - You will require a PSU with a 24-pin ATX connector, SATA power connectors, and a 4-pin 12V motherboard connector

    - Make a note of the wattage of your existing PSU

    - Make a note of the external dimensions of your existing power supply

    - Be aware that your PSU has a power connector for speakers. Most PSUs
    do not have this, so you may need to purchase a separate power supply
    for your speakers. So its not proprietary."

Unfortunately, no. See this link for a picture of your supply: http://www.cwc-group.com/fspgrfsposu2.html . It's considerably longer and narrower than a standard ATC power supply. This is typical of Packard Bell, e-Machines and many others.

Hope this helps!

    Nope! Should be just fine. It appears to have the same plugs as your existing supply. The listing also says it includes a 20/24 pin molex plug for the mainboard -- so it should fit just about any ATX mainboard out there. I'd caution you of course about buying from eBay as the item may not be as advertised, but if it's new, it should work great.

Packard Bell istart 1369 switchung off when warm


I assume you have had it for a while? May be the CPU, Graphics, Mobo/components, memory, etc.? Have you adjusted the Power Options in Control Panel, High Performance, Sleep and Hibernate to Never? Things start going one by one. Short story, I had a HP/Compaq SR1120sx, first the PSU, then the Audio, one channel, etc., etc., etc. If I continued replacing components the cost would have bought a new one. With the cost of Desktops and Laptops, due to the rise in Tablet, netbook, Smartphones, it may be wiser to buy a new one. Take a look at the Desktop prices and you make the decision. Invest in the old one or.......Perhaps it's time to let her go? A kiss on the cheek and send her out into the world.

Is there a comptable power supply to replace FSP250-60HEN


Although ATX power supplies conform to various specification guidelines, there is not, unfortunately, a standard ATX power supply. To find a suitable replacement power supply for your machine, we would recommend that you have the following information to hand when making your purchase:

- You will require a PSU with a 24-pin ATX connector, SATA power connectors, and a 4-pin 12V motherboard connector
- Make a note of the wattage of your existing PSU
- Make a note of the external dimensions of your existing power supply
- Be aware that your PSU has a power connector for speakers. Most PSUs do not have this, so you may need to purchase a separate power supply for your speakers.

So it is a slight variation to a standard ATX power supply. If you are not using the speaker power off the power supply, then any standard ATX power supply will work for you

Sounds like a power supply. the power supply in the tower may have overheated or burned. Does the fan in the power supply come one?

No singn light or sound


Did you check the power lead or the power supply in another pc. if you checked the power supply unit in another pc and it's fine, there is a faulty switch on your pc or faulty motherboard. Check that the 21 pin connector from the power supply unit to the motherboard is in properly as the psu will not work if disconnected from the board.
