    I’ve been having an issue recently with the power supply on my PC. When I turn on the battery backup and then try to turn the PC on, nothing happens. Yet, when I wait awhile, all of a sudden the PC turns on and stays on. What in the world could be causing this issue?

    Is there a reason you are powering your UPS on/off each time?

    You have THIS Dell Inspiron 580 Mini Tower
    It was purchased new in November 2010 at "Best Buy" in the U.S. and came with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
    Other than its original 750 GB HDD having been replaced with a larger capacity one, it appears to still have all of its original hardware.
    I'll leave you with Mark.

    When you power your UPS off it is not charging the batteries, best to leave it on all the time. Like Gr3iz said "Is there a reason you are powering your UPS on/off each time? "

    I just have the habit of shutting it down every night before going to bed.

    There's really no need to do so.

    What would be a good solid PSU that is pretty quiet, won’t break the bank, and a compatible replacement for a Dell Inspiron 580 Desktop PC?

    WHY please- is the present one faulty, or do you require more power for some other planned upgrade
    Is the present one the original Dell

    The original was 300watt
    which is ample as you have only integrated graphics

    That said I suspect you already have your answer from the Dell forums
    https://www.dell.com/community/Insp...n-580-recommended-PSU-replacement/m-p/7502504

    I think it is you, as the wording is exactly the same.
    Here
    and on the Dell forums
    What would be a good solid PSU that is pretty quiet, won’t break the bank, and a compatible replacement for a Dell Inspiron 580 Desktop PC?

    I do not mean there is anything wrong in asking in two places.
    My answer would be basically the same as on the Dell forums
    If you do go ahead you need to check the measurements and fitting of the original dell unit compared with the one you plan to use

    YOUR dell

    However the questions is still the same - WHY

    I've merged both of your threads together as they are very closely related and the responses to one could affect the reponses on the other. Please continue in this thread with all power supply, back up battery questions.

    I further notice that you have also asked the question and received replies on
    bleeping computer
    There is nothing I can add, to the replies received there.
    Good luck with it.

    It seems to act faulty and
    Basically, the other one’s been acting up once you cut the power to it for awhile. Would this power supply be enough? https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-Warrant...ly&qid=1583020301&sprefix=400+,aps,171&sr=8-2

    On your topic in bleeping computer the answer as been provided to you
    https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/714381/dell-inspiron-580-recommended-psu-replacement/

    As I said I have nothing of substance to add, to it

    The only aspect I would stress is as I did BEFORE I saw your post on Bleeping Computer site
    ALSO although it appears that your Dell used standard ATX main power supply header on board you should carefully check, as some Dell board used micro fitting 24pin and a standard PSU will NOT fit.
    There is ONLY you or some knowledgeable friend/colleague can verify this.
    Dell could but I doubt they will help with such a query on your computer.


    You will always receive differing recommendations
    Some people like EVGA, some Corsair, some Seasonic
    Just ensure you go with makes of that type and not some cheap more or less unknown label

    The EVGA one you quote is as it says a
    When building on a budget, the EVGA power supply is a great choice.

    2 year warranty

    The Seasonic recommended to you is slightly better spec

    5 year warranty
