Hello!

I guess that the computer have a one year warranty, You can claim a warranty anytime you want. But if has no warranty at all then you can repair the PSU by your own, Open the PSU and find any busted parts or maybe the fuse blownout that is very cheap you can replace that by your own. If afraid to do so, then let the repairman do it for you.
If no hastle it is recommended to by new PSU for your system.

Hope this help, best regards, melnavz

I recently purchased a Dynex 400 watt atx power supply for my Dell optiplex gx280 (slim form). The reason I did this is I have a new PNY geforce 8400 GPU and my old power supply is only 160 watts (1/2 the...


Sounds like the power supply is not compatible with the motherboard. If the motherboard can't support a 400 watt powers supply you will either get a blinking light or nothing at all. Those optiplex's use a proprietory power supply because of the pin connectors and how a power supply is supposed to fit in there. If you can't find a 400 watt power supply that fits then get a hold of Dell and see if they sell one for that computer.

Outages are frequenly accompanied by power surges. It sounds like your power supply got cooked and does not produce enough power to start your computer anymore.

They are inexpensive and are easily replaced. Take a couple of digital pictures of it in your case and then remove it.
Measure the dimensions and go find an ATX power supply that will fit. I recommend that you go up to at least 350 watts. Use your pictures to help you install the new power supply.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

The pc wont power up and the green led on the PSU is just flashing, is the bestec atx 250 12z broken?


Most likely yes.

I would also reccomend an upgrade to that PSU when replacing it.

Something in the 450-Watt neighborhood is usually a bit more robust.

Lost power supply need one. what are amps and volts requirements


just get one like the one that went out. id recommend a 600 watt power supply xion.com has good one
make a list or notes if you must or replace one lead at time and make a note of where it goes before you disconnect it '

the reason im recommending a 600 watt is most power supplies are marginal to begin with in my opinion. so getting a higher rated unit allows you to add accessories you might want to adds
i burned up a chief max 600 watt in a month for some reason replaced it with a 425 till i got a new one and bought a 600 watt xion.com power supply the original was 425 watt. i guess i got what i paid for the chief max was only 28 dolara from 3btech.net (a good site to bookmark

Install a temporary power supply to verify condition.


That mean you have bought the wrong PSU.

Return the new one, when you are at the store you purchased it from, ask them for a Micro ATX PSU, that is the kind you need.

The only other thing you will need to know is how many watts you want it to be, a decent one would be 400-550 watts

I have a power supply that is turning itself off immediately after switching it on it is a new motherboard as well Any ideas why ?


I think either the MB or the CPU is with problems.

Try (2 after 1 works, 3 after 2 works...):
1) only PSU+MB+CPU and Fan - works? beeps like crazy?
2) add memory - works? single beep?
3) add/connect video - any image?

All other connectors off (disks, etc) only PSU, fan and case buttons.


If you don't get past 1), go back to the store and have it tested/returned there.

Whining sound with xion 800 watt power supply.


There is a fan insine the power supply, and also a fan on the CPU. Occasionally there is also a fan on the chassis of the computer itself.

Turn on the computer, take the case off, and listen to identify the source of the noise. If it's inside the PSU, return it and get a new one.

I purchased a zion 2 case and I cant figure out the fan plugs because the plugs are like the ones use for cd burners to power themup


To connect the power cable, just take the 4-pin connector coming from the fan and connect it to any 4 pin connector coming from the power supply. you can then use the 4-pin connector to power a cd/ dvd drive or ATA hard drive

You sound like you know what you're doing, so I expect you've made all the motherboard connections(Same as the original PS). Does the switch work when you test it? If so, it sounds like the PS is DOA. I've had bad luck with cheap power supplies.
