Question about IBM FRU POWER/RESET CARD 73P6310 Power Supply

1 Answer

Insignia 30" HDTV

My son tried to turn his tv on, it mad buzzing noises and smells like it is burning.  I let it cool down and tried again - same buzzing noises and the front light is flashing like it is flicking on and off.  Does this sound like it is shot (it just was 2 years old) or can it be repaired?

Turn on the computer nothing happen then smell burning from the power supply! turned off right away.


That power supply is probably dead. try your motherboard witha known-to-be-good power supply to determine if your system has survived. IN my experience the failrate for antec sp450 watt psu is close to 40% over 4 years (300 pc:s at university), so there is a high probability that your psu is unrecoverable.

Alienware aurora desktop with 525 Watt Power Supply was working fine then all of sudden started making a loud noise like it was going into overdrive or something then emitted a horrible like burning...


The switch mode power supply in the desktop computer has failed. Most likely the capacitors in the power has exploded.
You need to open the desktop computer and remove the old power supply and replace it with a new one. Take the old power supply with you to your friendly computer shop and get a replacement power supply with the same wattage or greater wattage.

My computer is making a buzzing noise the fan is working and friend told me it was probably the power supply


I would first try cleaning the computer and removing as much dust as possible from your computer. Also clean the fans, this could be the reason why your fan is working so hard. Just make sure your computer isn't turned on and not plugged in.

Hi ive got an packard bell with a fsp250-60gen psu in, it started to smell of burn lately, was quite a bit of dust build up, cleaned it all out, but still smelling, isnt gettin hot, is it on its way out??...


The dust could cause the burning smell, if the smell has an electrical smell then most likely the capacitors are leaking in the power supply and about to blow/explode.
Is the power supply come from a desktop computer? If so all ATX switch mode power supplies have standard mounting holes and power connectors.
Take out the old switch mode power supply and take it with you to your friendly computer shop and compare it with a new one. Make sure the wattage rating of the new switch mode power supply is the same or greater than the old switch mode power supply.

I have a Dell PC-5251-2DS power supply. Am getting vertical stripes on the screen and the machine dies. Have a slight burning smell which makes me wonder if its the power supply. Would you concur?


The burning smell could be coming from the video card. Stripes on the screen indicate faulty video memory, shouldn't have anything to do with the power supply.

Power supply not working?


To see if power supply works
unplug the psu from the motherboard and drives
then plug the power cord into psu and wall
the fan should come on letting you know that it works.

you can also get a multimeter and check each individual connector on the 20/24 pin connector to motherboard.
check the psu docs for the correct voltages to each pin

If you smelled smoke then chances are that something may have gotten toasted.
remove all expansion cards and try to turn on computer if nothing happens then the motherboard may have gotten toasted.
Check the motherboard and expansion cards along with memory for shorts and burn spots.
