Replacing powerman fsp300-60gt with astec atx93-3405 115/230 power supply units

Do the units have to have all the screw holes used to close it up and for mounting to create a ground?I removed a power supply unit and installed a working one .However the working one wont start this pc, the working pwrspply has shorter cables it is hooked up but have not mounted it to the frame it yet because of the shorter cables.A green light came on inside the pc but thats it. No lights on outside indicating it was on.MY question being will the powersupply work as intended without being mounted to the frame,does this mounting cause a needed ground?
THANK YOU

The power supply doesn't need to be mounted to anything. It's self contained. The replacement doesn't have enough juice:
Sparkle FSP300-60GT = 300w
atx93-3405 = 90w
No way is the Astec going to run that PC. In fact, there are very few that it will.
You will have to get a 300w or higher power supply for this to work.

Hi I try to troubleshoot the ASTEC 450W power supply. I don't know how to power up. Anyone can help me with this problem. Thanks. My email is trinhluu62@yahoo.com


DO NOT troubleshoot a power supply unless you are professionally trained. Power supplies contain a lethal charge even when disconnected from a power source and should never be opened or tampered with. If you are having a problem with building/upgrading a PC and are using this power supply, then please post further details on your problem here and maybe we can help.

You can jumper on an ATX power supply by using a wire to connect pin 4 (green wire) to any of the grounds on the 20 pin ATX connector. The grounds are normally a black wire. You will need to put some sort of load on the power supply such as a hard drive to keep it running.

I need an ASTEC power supply model SA147-3506 for IBM P-2 computer, Can anybody help me??!!


145 Watt power supply with the old style AT motherboard power cable connectors. (2 Each)

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#oldpc

I just put Astec SA147-3506 in my browser search bar, and came up with a number of search hits. Prices ranged from $50 to $170!

And it's a 145 Watt power supply! Astec is a cheap quality power supply manufacturer, to boot!

You know, there is a way to use a newer reliable power supply, and the AT power supply motherboard connectors, off of the power supply you have.

It's not for the squeamish, but can be done.

The power wires are removed from the ATX power supply motherboard cable connector, of the new power supply, and inserted into the AT power supply connectors.
(ATX 12V power supply is the newer one. AT power wires removed from the P8, and P9 connectors of your old power supply)

Interested?
