Question about System Power Supplies
I received my Dell computer for Christmas 2006. The power supply quit working in August and my husband (who is a mechanic) was convinced that the power supply had a fuse in it and attempted to work on it making it's warranty void. I purchased another Dell power supply block from a local Computer Company. Today, this one quit. Is there a problem with the power supply itself or do I have a problem with my laptop??
Most of the time you need to replace the mother board as well as the power box, it shorts the mother board out.

Tips for a great answer:
Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this will help
