replacing power supply

  mikeystipe 12:56 13 Jul 09


I have a PC with a bust power supply.
My system has a ASUS A7V400-MX motherboard and
the power supply is a :

CTK 400W (Model No: LGB400 ATX) - with a 20 pin connector

Do I need to replace this with a 400w supply (or can I use a 300W for example)

How much should I be paying for a new supply. Can anybody recommend a trusted e-supplier

Thanks in advance, Mike

Replace with what you have (400w) or higher.
How much should you pay?It depends on your budget,
Cheap psu can be had for around £15 or you may want to pay a bit more and get a better quality one made by Antec/coolmaster/enermax.

I had the same problem last year. I extracted my faulty PSU, took it to a local computer guru and he supplied me with another for about £25. Uncoupling it and extracting it from the tower and installing the new one is quite straightforward if you are fairly handy with electrical bits and pieces.
