    I have a Dell and there was a 250 W power supply. I bought a 350 W not a DEll It works fine as long as I don't screw it into place. Once I screw it into plade it seems like it shortens out. I took it back and got another one same thing happens. What Dell just takes Dell Power supply's. Dells didn't have a off and on switch on the power supply This one does. Would that make a difference? The switch isn't in the open it behind the sheet metel. there no opening for the switch.

    Thanks

    Are you saying that the On Off Swith for the power supply is contacting the sheet metal of the case when you screw it in place? Or is this a switch that says 115/240 on it?

    dustyjay,
    You should have just clicked the "Report Button" and they would have moved it in the Hardware Section.
    Just a tip.....
    I will do that for you.
    The people in the hardware section are friendly and solve many problems.
    Sorry if I sound contradictory
