    Have a bad PS in my brothers computer and want a good replacement.I did add a new dvd burner and installed a new hard drive.Used his old one as a slave drive so he could recover files off of it.Found this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817338005 wondered if it would work or someone knew of a better replacement for The HP Pavillion XT 933.When he brought it to me it wouldnt power on so i stripped it down to bare minimum and for some reason it started working again.Did a clean install of windows and it ran great for a few days then wouldnt power on again.Fan in ps sounded bad though.Did short pins on MB to make sure it wasnt switch so I think a new PS is in order.

    I am not sure if HP older units had proprietary psu's but I have changed out some early P4's and they can take anything. HP has online support where you can chat with them so I suggest going there first. Oh, and that psu is junk. If it isn't Enermax, Antec, Thermaltake or Sparkle, I would not be buying it.
