Hello,

I have an E-Machines W2646 that just died due to a faulty Power Supply Unit.

I have two PSUs sitting on a shelf and was wondering if I could swap out the bad one for my shelved units?

The model of the existing BAD PSU is: (Bestec)ATX-250-12E

The two I have stored have the following model numbers.

1. (Delta) DPS-110MB-1
2. (Dell) HP-P1457F3

Just wondering if either of these will work before having to purchase a new PSU.

Thanks for any advice.

There is noth8ing special about the psu in the emachine but there may be about the Dell psu's you have there. it certainly would not hurt to try them but I wonder if they are not proprietary for a Dell though.

The Delta PSU came from an old HP pavilion, Circa the turn of the century.

The apparent difference between the PSUs are the connectors.

All have the 20 pin ATX plug, but my shelved units do not have the 4 pin ATX.

After looking again at the Dell PSU, this unit has a 6 pin connector as well as the 20 pin ATX.

I think I would be better off getting a new PSU.

Any Thoughts?

Yes new psu it is....but be aware though in most cases when a psu blows in an eMachine, it takes the motherboard with it so buy it somewhere you will be able to return easily if it doesn't solve problem.

Rich-M,

Thanks for the advice.

I purchased a PSU from Tigerdirect, and because the motherboard was toasted as well, I was able to return the PSU. Time to trash out the E-Machines. "Bummer"
