Hi,
So a friend gave me a computer, and it just dosn't start. You press the button, and nothing happens, at all! I'm guessing that it's either the PSU or the motherboard. It has a L&C LC-B450 E power supply (450w), and i think that i will need to replace it. I can't find any new versions of that PSU, can anyone point me in the right direction of a new PSU that would be compatible.

Thanks

Are there any cheaper solutions?
That one is near $100!
Unless i NEED to spend that much to get it working, i am looking for under $40.
Thanks though :)

Okay, computer is custom built. Here is all i know w/o having to take the thing completely apart, i don't want to ruin the processor or anything by dropping it, etc (i'm clumsy)..
Processor: AMD athalon x64 (all i know)
MB: Gigabyte GA-K8NS-939
Vid Card: 128mb FX5200 (AGP) i think Nvidia, but not sure.
Computer is quite old, purchased 2003, i think.

Thanks! What type of things are you searching for when looking for the PSU? I'll look around and see what i can get from computer stores near-by, but i might even just order this one now, idk. :)
Thanks m8

I read the part about the 20 pin connectors, and using a 24pin PSU, it said that it would be ok to do it from 24 -> 20, but not the other way. This MB uses 20pin, the PSU i linked to uses 24pin...
Did i read the wrong part?

oh yes, so they do... Thanks m8.
Do you think that this one would work?
It's in my price range :)

Thanks for all your help. - i'm really tired, and need to get this finished, you have no idea how much help all the little things you pointed out made.

i could not recommend it with power supplies you get what you pay for
you don't have a demanding system you may get away with it
