2 Answers

Want to replace a power edge sc1420 power supply with a regular atx power supply has anybody done that. Think the ATX connector is the same but on the other connectors there are many blue wires and I don't know their voltages. The Box is a discard cause the PS was $$$$ and I have a couple 500w atx PS i can use.

Pin out for a dell PS-5201-8D2 power supply


Use caution, some older Dell machines used a non standard, proprietary pin-out on the 20 pin connector ALso the 6 pin is suspect. If you connect a regular ATX PSU, you will fry the MoBo. Look here

Not sure which plugs go where on the bestec atx300 power supply for gateway computer. remopved the old powere supply, but don't know which plug goes where on the new one.


I'll assume that your old PSU is also an ATX. First, the plug that has a few dozen wires arranged in a rectangle goes into the MB. Your PSU's ATX connector may be split into 2 parts: the AT portion and a square portion with 4 wires. Together, they make an ATX plug. You'll find some tiny plugs with 2-3 wires for your onboard fans. You might find a few slightly larger flat plugs with 4 wires for old floppy drives. The rest should be the regular MOLEX plugs and slim SATA power plugs for your drives.

My power went out and when it came back on the computer would not come on


eMachines uses low quality hardware components inside their computers. This is the way they can sell them at budget prices.

One main hardware component is the low quality power supply they use.
A generic power supply made by Bestec. (A generic power supply manufacturer)

(PSU. Power Supply Unit. The type of PSU used is a SMPS.
Switched-Mode Power Supply,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Switched-mode_power_supply )

Low quality;
A) Electrolytic Capacitors (Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor)
B) Rectifier Bridge
C) MOSFET/s
D) Wiring is too small in gauge
to name a few of the components.

However IMHO it is also best to check out the Power On switch.
There is a simple test to see whether the problem is a faulty Power On switch, or a faulty Power Supply.

The test involves bypassing the Power On switch. The Power On switch is not involved in this test.
A jumper wire is used on the Soft Power On wire, [ PS-ON ], and a Ground wire in the ATX main power cable connector.

If you bypass, and the Power Supply comes on you have a bad Power On switch.
If the Power Supply does Not come on you have a bad Power Supply.
If you would like to know more in detail on how to perform this simple test, simply post so in a Comment.

The Power Supply used is just a common ATX version.
ATX refers to the Form Factor of the power supply.
Regular size ATX form factor is approximately 6 inches Wide, 5-1/2 inches Long, and 3-1/2 inches Tall. (Height)

There are also differences in the pinout of the ATX main power cable.
Yours may have 20-pins, or 24-pins.
Power Supply's sold now take this into consideration.
Their ATX main power cable can be used as a 20-pin, or a 24-pin version.

[ General example of a 20-pin ATX main power cable, and it's connector,

Example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

Your motherboard may also require an additional power cable, commonly referred to as a P4 power cable, or P4 ATX 12V power cable, or just ATX 12V.
The actual name is 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

If you would like help in finding an inexpensive reliable Power Supply, please post in a Comment.
I will need to know what Model Number of eMachine you have. It's on the back next to the Windows product key, or up on the side of the computer tower.

If you need anything explained that I have stated here, please let me know in a Comment.
Regards,

Dell ATX(12v) power supply


The fact that it is made by Dell is irrelivent.

ATX is a standard and so are 20 and 24 pin motheroboard connectors.

You should find what you need by searching for: power supply unit on Wikipedia and Google.

Good luck!

Is there a comptable power supply to replace FSP250-60HEN


Although ATX power supplies conform to various specification guidelines, there is not, unfortunately, a standard ATX power supply. To find a suitable replacement power supply for your machine, we would recommend that you have the following information to hand when making your purchase:

- You will require a PSU with a 24-pin ATX connector, SATA power connectors, and a 4-pin 12V motherboard connector
- Make a note of the wattage of your existing PSU
- Make a note of the external dimensions of your existing power supply
- Be aware that your PSU has a power connector for speakers. Most PSUs do not have this, so you may need to purchase a separate power supply for your speakers.

So it is a slight variation to a standard ATX power supply. If you are not using the speaker power off the power supply, then any standard ATX power supply will work for you

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?

Power edge 1800 bought october 2006. It does have a DELL 650 Watt non-redundant power supply, type nr. PS-5651-1. Can I replace it with a standard ATX power supply, or is the connector not standard wired...


Dell uses proprietary psu's. You will need to contact them for replacement psu or find a supplier that makes psu's that can be used as a Dell replacement. Hope this helps.

I have an old e machine 500 (origional operating system was windows 98). I am replacing the ATX switching power supply , 230 wat, model lp6100a. My problem is connecting it. I know all the connectors...


The old AT power supply that these old computers uses has two six pin socket connectors and these are different to the ATX connector.
You cannot buy these power supply now, most likely you might find one/computer in a junk shop.
If you have electronic knowledge you might be able to cut off the connectors from the old power supply and connect it to the ATX power supply and modify the ATX power supply so you can switch on the power to the old computer. The old AT power supply uses a mains power switch whereas the ATX uses low voltage to turn on the power supply.
Good luck & have fun.
