    The fan in my computer has died. I think I will replace the power supply.

    I currently have the L&C 250Watt model. I am wondering which other models would also be compatible with my computer.

    Thank you.

    I'll pass on the first part of the post????

    Now power supplies. Depends on how new, and what type of MB you have as to what power supply you might upgrade to. More info is needed unless you have a new computer in which case just about any modern power supply will work.

    AT (on/off switch is wired into the PSU) or ATX (Power switch connects to the motherboard)?

    Pull the power supply and take it to the store with you. If it is a standard ATX you should be able to get something.

    I can't tell anything from the belarc scan. It doesn't even give the motherboard. It just gives the bios.

    Do you recommend that site, steppenwolf? Have you ordered from there before?
    I can tell you that my first impression of that site was terrible and that tends to push me in the other direction. My thought is that if a company doesn't have a professional, functioning, nicely designed, error-free site, that doesn't make the company look very reputable. But that's just my thought...

    I think that steppenwolf linked this site for the Power Wattage Calculator, the link http://www.jscustompcs.com/power_supply/ takes you to the main page just click on the Power Wattage Calculator Hyper link to use it once there put in the information and it will indicat the proper wattage that your PSU should be.

    I removed the computer cover and placed a regular household stationary fan about a foot away to act as a cooling agent until I get the new PC. :)
