ATX power supply

Recommended Posts

The pdf file has some good information such as how to build the dummy load to test a power supply so that you know it is the supply and not a peripheral. Beyond that, I do not give TJ Beyers much credit (not exactly a friend of mine ;) ). $10 in parts plus a lot of your time when you can buy a new power supply for about the same as just the parts. For example, -->

Has a 300 Watt ATX power supply for $12.99.

And what do you have left when you fix your old one? Have you replaced ALL the bad parts or just the non functioning ones? Normal failure from a computer power supply is due to excess heat build up or power surges. This ruins some of the parts and weakens others. Sometimes you can chase problems for months to come. IMHO, I recommend to just replace it :-\.
