Question about System Power Supplies

1 Answer

PSU I have a dell dimension 4550 and recently I tried to up grade the power supply by buying a Turbolink ATX 2.03 500W PSU. When I intstalled it, the computer would not turn on. I made sure all the connections were right and that when I connected the power I had the case open to make sure the motherboard light came on and it did, but the computer fan did not turn on and no boot up processes were started. Is there anything I can do to make this power supply work?

Pin out for a dell PS-5201-8D2 power supply


Use caution, some older Dell machines used a non standard, proprietary pin-out on the 20 pin connector ALso the 6 pin is suspect. If you connect a regular ATX PSU, you will fry the MoBo. Look here

Computer shouts down in 15 to 20 seconds after starting


The specs say the PSU is ATX compatible. Whether that is for the connector only or for the whole power supply is something you will have to determine.

If you have an ATX power supply handy (like in an old computer) give it a try. This one is only 300 Watts so it won't likely be expensive to replace.

8400 dell hold power switch to get started


If it still acts up, compare wiring of the large motherboard Molex connector to the original. Dell used a variant that does not interchange. The enable wire is in a different location from standard ATX location.

If the processor is an AMD, remove cbattery and clear BIOS, and then try again.

My dell dimension 4550 wont turn on i unhooked the power supply and jumped the pins to get my power suppy fan to come on but i dont know if its putting juice out


At the plugs check the yellow and black (black is ground) and the red and black. You should get 5v on one and 12v on the other. The fan needs to stay jumpered to check for voltage. At the main plug you should also find 3.3v

What is the 6 pin


You can replace the power supply in this Dell with a normal ATX power supply. Make sure the total wattage is equal to or greater than the old power supply.

Need physical dimensions of HEC HP585D 585W ORION HP585D ATX


No, given your old PSU's dimensions the HEC PSU would be too large. It sounds like you have a micro-ATX case.

Want to upgrade power supply on Dell Dimension 4700. Bought Rocket Fish RF-550wps 550 watt powersupply to install . Unable to proceede no schematics ror placing wireing


Hi there.
Rocket Fish RF-550wps PSU is standard ATX power supply.
Dell tend to use their own power supplies which differ slightly from standard power supplies.
I suggest you take or send the Rocket Fish RF-550wps PSU back as it won't fit and order one from Dell themselves, at least then you will have a guaranteed fit.
Once you have your new power supply from Dell (or a Dell ATX power supply) it should be easy to fit in.
Post back if you need any more help.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Psu for compaq presario 6031CL


hi there, you should be able to purchase a 400 watt ATX power supply from any pc part retailer, even better, buy it off the net, its usually cheaper. 99% of supplys be they the old AT (mostly obsolete now) or ATX will fit like a glove. Best of luck and I hope this helps...
