Yes you can, just make sure that the switch mode power supply you purchase has the same wattage or greater wattage that your old switch mode power supply.

Replace power jack


Power supply failures in a HP computer can cause your computer to fail to turn on, to operate erratically or cause certain system components not function.

However, the power supply is one of the easiest parts of a computer to replace.
You don't need any special skills to do this.

If you're nervous about opening up your computer case and potentially damaging a computer component, don't be.

All you are really doing is plugging in power supply cables after securing the power supply.
The process should take 10 minutes maximum.

Shut down your HP computer.
Disconnect the power cable from the power supply on the back of your computer.

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.

Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards.


Unscrew the side panel from the back of the case and slide it off.
Newer HP computers may have a case door you can open for access or have access buttons to press.


Look at the back of your HP computer case for a set of four screws near the top of the case. Remove these screws and set them aside.
Carefully slide your power supply out of the mounting brackets and set it on a clean working surface.
Do not disconnect any of the power connectors yet.

Slide your replacement HP power supply into the case and use the mounting screws to attach it to the chassis.


Use your old HP power supply as a guide to connect your new power supply to all the computer components.

Switch the power cables from each device from the old supply to the new supply so you don't miss connecting any cables.

Check that all the components have power cables inserted and the old HP power supply is completely disconnected from the system.

Close the HP computer case and plug the power cable into the new HP power supply.

I accidentally plugged computer avr 220v to 110 could it affect my power supply


If the computer power supply is a 240 volt unit and you plugged into 110 volt mains the the computer should be OK.
Some power supplies have a voltage selection switch on the back of the power supply switch to 110 volts and it should work.
If the power supply is 110 volts and you plug it into a 240 volts mains then you will damage the power supply and possibly the computer as well.

Why shud i use a 230W supply on om my XBOX 360? is it better than the 175W and the 150W?


The more amperage you have on the 12 volt rails the more power you can draw from the power supply. For an xbox 360 I don't see any reason why you would use a non-standard power supply unit there really is no gain using a computer PSU on an xbox 360 unless you broke your factory PSU and then you could rig a computer PSU to it but your better off not trying unless your really good at electronics.

Replacement AC adapters are available for most brands. Radio Shack sells a universal adapter with a selection of tips that covers nearly all of them. You can also do a web search for your brand and model and "replacement ac adapter" and will find many sources.

Look on your power supply for the output voltage and amperage. It should say something like "Output: 9V DC 500mA". With this information you only need to get one with the same plug.
When you do please post the answer because I have the MLI699 speakers and don't know what power supply is needed.
