    If you want new, how about places like Maplins? Or if you want... ebay :)

    Those machines are fairly useless. We see those through here all the time with failed PSUs and motherboards. If you think it's really worth it, just get yourself a standard ATX Power Supply, it's nothing special. Just a standard one.

    Are you sure that it's your Power supply that's failed?

    Hi Matt - thankyou for your time in replying. Have tested AC to powersupply and lead - works fine with an older system i happen to have lying around. What else do you think it could be if not the systems power supply ????

    Kindest Regards

    Matt - would you have a secondhand power supply lying around by any chance - I know the system is poor
    as you clearly appreciate - so want to keep costs down if I can help it. No worries if you are unable to assist here

    All the best

    what he said.

    Check the mobo hasn't got any busted capasitors (these are the little cylindrical thingabybobs) they can crack when knackered thus rendering the mobo dead.

    It could do, if the psu was completly dead then nothing would happen at all but if part of a mobo was dead then some parts may work whereas others wouldn't.

    Have you tested the psu with a multimeter?

    Think the PSU has already been tested on another PC....
