A quick look at the H55TC's architecture tells me you should choose - at minimum - a power supply
that is ATX12V 2.0 compliant. This will provide you with a contiguous 24-pin connection to the CPU,
increased power on the 12V rails, and adequate power to most of the board's optional components.

That's the short answer.

From there you need to take a look at how you intend on completing your build. Are you going to use the onboard graphics or pop in a discrete video card? If the latter, then you should be looking at
PSU's that are ATX12V v2.2 compliant, to provide adequate power to the PCIe x16 slot. But keep in mind that ATX12V v2.2 revision limits 12V rails to 20A per rail, which means if you plan on building a performance machine that begs for 60A of power, you'll be limited to power supplies with split 12V rails. Multiple 12V rails introduces load-balancing issues and other concerns, if your plan is to push this system to its limits.

Moving up to the ATX12V v2.3 form factor removes the 20A per rail restriction, allowing for high-amp
single 12V rail power supplies. This revision also ensures higher efficiency ratings (80% on avg.) which means less power consumption, and less heat build-up in your case.

The optimal choice would be an EPS12V compliant power supply, a revision made specifically with multi-core processors in mind. My pick for one of the best value EPS12V power supplies would be the CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX - currently on sale at Newegg for $109.99 (30-bucks-off.)

It delivers a true 750W of power; pumps out 60A on a single 12V rail; is both SLI & Crossfire certified; 80%+ efficient; Core i7 compatible - essentially future-proof for the life of the PSU.

Finally, here's a link to a pretty decent power supply calculator by Asus. It should give you a good idea of how much juice you're gonna need once you trick out your system.

Good luck, and I hope this was useful :)

Power supply compatible for cooler master cac-t05-uw


Most brands like HEC, Gigabyte, FPS, Cooler Master, Enermax, Silver stone, Corsair, etc. Will fit in your casing but you must consider your hardware before buying a power supply.

Most power supplies that are priced below $30 generally do not meet the power requirements of the latest processors. To make matters worse, the components used in them are of inferior quality and more likely to fail over time. While they may power the computer system, inconsistencies in the power to the components will tend to cause instability and damage to the computer.

Consider the ff:

ATX12V Compliant
PC Power Supply Wattage
Silent PC Power Supplies
Power Efficiency
Having the right number of connectors

Hp palilivon a 1100y lost all power will not come back on i checked all cords power source everything seems to be ok. but no power still?


I'm going to base this solution on two scenarios from the info you have posted.

1) The power to your home/business went out. Now it's back on.

2) The power has been on all along, and the computer quit.


Based on 1) above;

The Power On switch could be bad, or the Power Supply.

A voltage spike could have occurred, and taken out the ATX power on switch.
(A generic ATX Power On switch is around $5. Example,

http://www.axiontech.com/prdt.php?item=78201 )

A voltage spike could have taken out a power supply that is of low quality, and/or on it's last leg.

The power supply used in an HP Pavilion a1100y desktop computer is of low quality.
Low quality components are used inside.
(Bestec, and Delta are two of the low quality power supply's used by HP in this time frame)

Plus add to the fact that the computer has some age on it, (5 years old?), and could be dirty inside.
Dirt,dust, etc. 'kills' computers and power supply's.

There is a simple test to perform to see whether the problem is the Power Supply, or the Power On switch.
(The Power On switch is located within the plastic Power On button assembly)
If you wish to know how to perform this test please post in a Comment.
(Free)


Based on 2) above;
The Power Supply is bad.
The test would be either to use a multimeter, and check the three main voltages coming out of the Power Supply,
Or,
Substitute the power supply with a KNOWN to be good compatible unit.
(250 to 300 Watt)

(Sometimes access to another known to be good, compatible power supply may be obtained from a computer that is no longer in use. The user has upgraded to a better computer.
Compatible being that the Power Supply has the required Wattage, and required power cables)

[The three main voltages produced by an SMPS (Switched-Mode Power Supply) used by the Pavilion a1100y desktop computer are;

A) 3.3 Volts DC (Orange wire)
B) 5 Volts DC (Red wire)
C) 12 Volts DC (Yellow wire)
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC ]

This is HP Support>Pavilion a1100y desktop computer> Motherboard Specifications,

Looking at the motherboard illustration, and photo at the bottom of the page, we can see what power cables are needed for the motherboard;

A) 24-pin ATX main power cable
(Connector on motherboard illustration marked as ATXPWER1. In the photo it is whitish, and has two vertical columns of 12 square socket holes. It is to the Right of the Ram Memory slots)

B) 4-pin ATX main power cable.
(Connector on motherboard illustration is marked ATX12V. It is to the left of the Intel Northbridge chipset - Intel 915GV GMCH.
In the photo it is the whitish square connector with four square socket holes. It is to the Left of the
aluminum finned Heatsink, sitting on top of the Intel Northbridge chipset)

Other power cables needed are;
1) A SATA power cable for the SATA harddrive
2) One or two 4-pin Peripheral (Standard) power cables for the optical drive/s. (CD/DVD drives)

The Processor fan cable attaches to the motherboard. (CPU_FAN)
The computer case fan attaches to the motherboard. (SYS_FAN)

The ATX form factor is used primarily for describing a motherboard.
Form Factor denotes the size, and shape, and power cables for a Power Supply.

The ATX form factor for a Power Supply;
Size: Approximately 6 inches Wide, 5-1/2 inches Long, and 3-1/2 inches Tall.

A $40 ATX power supply with 300 Watts will do just fine. No need to buy an expensive Power Supply based on advertising as a direct substitute.

One example of an inexpensive reliable ATX power supply for a Pavilion a1100y desktop computer,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1389575&CatId=1078

Has all the power cables you'll need. Actual maximum wattage rating is 350 Watts.

    E Machine ATX 250 -12E replacement PS


    With emachine MOBO's you have to make sure you plug in the 20 pin plug from the power supply to the mobo. Also make sure all hard drives, cd/dvd roms, floppy drives, etc are turned on. Make sure the red switch on the PS is set to 115. Make sure the PS is plugged into a known working outlet. Make sure MOBO is properly in place with all grounds/screws in place and nothing metal near or touching board which may short it out.

    You can review the E Machines PS replacement guide here for further instruction.

    Good Luck,

    Most likely yes.

    I would also reccomend an upgrade to that PSU when replacing it.

    Something in the 450-Watt neighborhood is usually a bit more robust.

    Intel D945GCLF - No post, No video Signal


    Sounds like your wiring isnt right on the on off power. Make sure your power supply can handle this MotherboardAdapter cables are available that allow the incorrect use of older ATX or SFX power supplies in place of an ATX12V or SFX12V power supply. Intel does not recommend the use of these cables. These cables convert a standard 1x4 peripheral connector to the ATX12V 2x2 connector. An ATX12V or SFX12V with the 2x2 connector is required for all Pentium® 4 processor based Intel® Desktop Boards. Using the 1x4 converter cables can lead to system component or power supply damage and/or boot failures. The ATX12V and SFX12V power supply design guides (http://www.formfactors.org/)* recommend a minimum of 8A at 12Volts to properly power any Pentium 4 processor based Intel® Desktop Board. Standard ATX and SFX power supplies typically provide approximately 5A of current, which is not capable of reliably powering the Pentium 4 processor based Intel® Desktop Board. And I think the motherboards going to look for a formatted hard drive wired to the motherboard It wont boot off that USB stick.

    T2893 desktop did not power on when I hit the power button


    If you can find someone that has the same model, that is the best way to make sure it fits. Some other motherboards will fit, but you may have to do some work to get them to fit. The best way would be to try to do some research on your particular motherboard (mobo) on the internet. Sometimes it will have a manufacture’s name and model on it, try googling it and see what type it says it is (ATX, mini-ATX, AT, etc). One problem you may have is the power button connectors may not be compatible with your new motherboard if you get something besides an emachine mobo. If you are good at electronics it will not be much of a problem for you.

    Unless you get an exact e-machines mobo, your OS will most likely not work at startup. Windows XP does not like wholesale changes like a mobo. When it sees that a major configuration change has happened it sometimes freaks out. Sometimes it will just ask you to re-activate windows other times it gets stuck in a reboot loop. Hard rive and CD rom should still work, provide you do not get too new of a mobo. Older HDD and CD drives were IDE connectors, newer ones have SATA connectors. Unless your mobo and power supply unit (PSU) have the correct connectors you will not be able to use them.

    To the poster who asked if it could be anything else besides bad mobo. Yes it can occasionally be a bad power supply unit (PSU). A bad PSU does not necessarily mean no power, just not enough power to run the computer. You can try swapping it out with another one of equal or greater output watts. You can try removing the power connectors from the drives and then remove the memory and see if it changes the boot up procedure of your machine. More beeps, different beeps, no beeps, etc. Add one component back at a time to test. Make sure you get the same results and not just a one-time fluke start up. If a memory stick is bad, it usually is bad. A power supply or mobo can be flaky and fail some times and not others.
