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...

Hi, I have a Compaq PSU (PN: 230822-001) from a HP Proliant server. I am try to test the output of the unit but need to 'enable' it using the pins on the back... Do you have any information...


OUTSIDE of a redundant PSU - The power supply is very inexpensive and can most likely be bought from any of your computer retailers, Amazon - Just make sure to confirm the right model type of power supply. BEST to have it tested before replacing it. To make sure that is the issue.. Many computer shops will test for free.

Compaq PS-7171-c1f1 model


There is, but I would NOT recommmend an untrained user to do it as it can be dangerous.
If you want to know you can unplug the PSU from the PC and short out a specific connector pin (green) with a paper clip, this causes the PSU to turn on and the fans spin.
If that works it usually means the PSU is OK.
But I repeat I would suggest NOT doing this unless you really know what you are doing and take the proper precautions as shorting the wrong pins can be very dangerous.
The best way is to borrow a spare PSU and try it or buy a cheap generic one just to try that out.

Power supply or motherboard problem?


Hi talissap,

The blinking light is telling you something about the PSU. First check any AC mains voltage select switches for proper setting. US should be 115. Second if you have a multimeter, you could test the PSU for voltage. Disconnect all power to all components. remove all components from the board including cpu, memory . Leave the PSU only plugged into the board. Press power. If the fan turns on then it's not the power supply. The brand power supply isn't the best, I've seen where you need to wait for 5-20 minutes for the blinking to stop, at which time it will fire up. Now, if it doesn't power up, then it's most likely the PSU.

Good Luck,

Mark

-5v is sitting at -8.48


If you were measuring the voltage right then it seems like a power supply problem. Make sure you are measuring voltage potential with respect to common ground. Meaning the black wires on your meter probe is on the metal body of the PSU.

Power supply does not fit!


OK most PSU's are the same.. by that I mean as long as the output & connections match, then the size & shape don't really matter. On the PSU somewhere will be a "Wattage" rating say 250Watt... whatever.. simply obtain a standard (Usually 350Watt) PC Power Supply Unit (PSU)of the SAME or HIGHER Wattage rating & also ensuring the Mating Connector onto the MotherBoard is the same... ya be all good..
