I am new here and a novice so any help is greatly appreciated in advance.

From reading other posts in this forum I have self diagnosed they I need a new PSU for my computer( there is nothing happening at all when I plug the computer in no noise,lights, nothing.) The current PSU is a FSP300-60THA. Can someone please recommend a cheap alternative replacement ? The operating system is Xp and the computer is an Acer if that makes a difference. Also how difficult is it to swap a PSU seems like pulling and matching the pins pulled
Thanks

never buy a cheap psu otherwise you might aswell throw your computer out of the window.

what graphics card are you running?

you should never skimp on a power supply as a cheapone can take the rest of the components with it when it fails. You should look at a corsair tx550

yes and bad too.

The best power supplies are: Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power & cooling and Thermaltake (toughpower units only).

What people don't seem to realise is that a psu may say it is 500w but if is a bad brand then really it could only be churning out 400w and occasionally 500w you need one that has a constant good output. which the ones I have listed will give you.

Generally when it comes to power supplies the more you pay the better it will be.
