With the model number of your Notebook, you'll be able to find a replacement for your power supply at various auction sites, after market parts supply shops, and even the OEM power supply from the manufacturer. You can check for proper output voltage with a multi-meter or have someone check it for you.
Just make sure that the power supply is at fault and not the DC jack on the MoBo. If it is the DC jack (very common problem as people transporting their Notebooks/Laptops with the P.S. plugged in and the connector gets knocked around damaging the DC jack), that will require replacing the jack (above average soldering skills or an electronics shop will be required), and more than likely the Manufacturer will only offer MoBo replacement only for bad DC jacks. You should be able to determine if the jack is at fault if you can manipulate the male power connector of the power supply and that gives you power intermittently, or even maintains in a certain position once manipulated.
Good luck.

I cant open my computer.

You're going to need to be a bit more specific than that. There are too many reasons a computer won't boot properly and it is the way it won't boot that tells people what the problem is.

If you'd computer doesn't turn on at all even if u push the power button, no sound no video no nothing, Kaput, then reassure your power is properly plugged in. Take the power cord and shove it in. Grrrrrrrr it takes a bit of force. If that doesn't work , check the power supply. Are the volts correct? In usa, that volt meter at the back should read 110 volts. If u live anywhere else, its 220 volts. If that's correct then check if the power switch is one in the power supply. Is the power cables inside connecting to the motherboard good? Is the power supply good? If everything a fine, u probably have a dead motherboard.

Miracles happen and u see something, but no video pops open. U either have a bad monitor or a bad graphics card. The vga/dvi/HDMI cables may jot be properly inserted. Is the monitor even on powered correctly?

Hurray u got it to boot but then u get blue screen. Or u get the the windows icon, but then restarts. It must be past the motherboard screen like dell Asus gigabyte etc, try reinstalling windows. If it doesn't work, u probs y have a dead hard drive.

Power supply frequency is no issue for modern switching power supplies. You need only to check mains voltage and pinout.

Asus CG Series desktop keeps shutting down after CPU fan and power supply replacement. What is wrong with this thing?

get a heatsink compound and paste on the processor before putting the fan, or either the cpu fan isn't working constantly, or the power supply, or one or both of the replaced parts are not for your system, may be the power supply is for pentium 3 etc ...

I brought ati radeon hd4350 it is working properly but my pc become very slow i m having asus p5gzmx motherboard

This almost sounds like you power supply isnt giving enough power to the rest of the motherboard where it needs it. I would try removing the video card. If its still slow it sounds like low memory if it speeds up then it sounds like you need a bigger one.

It sounds like your +12 volt line of your power supply is bad. The motherboard uses +5 for most of its functions and chips, so the led and most of the board would work. The +12 volts drives the motor in the hard drive. You can measure the voltages on the molex connector, red wire is +12, yellow is +5, both blacks are grounds. Even if the voltage looks good, however, the supply can break down under a load, so in the event that it does look good, still try another power supply. If that doesn't work, disconnect the CD and DVD drives to make sure they aren't loading down the power supply. Hope this helps.

Pull out the battery and replace it again. Then power it on again. If the problem persists, you will need to have the motherboard, processor and RAM checked by appropriate technical personnel. Any of these could be responsible.

Things to try:

1. Check that the cpu fan is properly connected to the correct port marked CPU FAN.

2. Make sure the power cables are connected correctly to the motherboard.

3. Test the button switch with a multi-tester to make sure that it tests good.

4. Make sure the power switch is connected to the correct pins on the motherboard.

5. With the computer off pop the cr2032 battery out and pop it back in after a few minutes.

6. Test the power supply with either another motherboard or a power supply tester.

7. Test the motherboard with another power supply.

8. If all else fails replace the motherboard I have had a bad one from time to time even out of the box, and if you have a spare cpu you may want to test with that also. Cpu's hardly ever go bad I think I have had two go bad ever, not counting power surges and storm damage.

This happens because your CPU is overheating, open your PC and blow any dust off the openings and CPU/Power supply fans, if you think one of the fans is not working... replace it.
