PC Power Supply

There comes a day in the life of every pc owner when you must make a decision. Do I fix it, or do I buy a new one? Many people just go out and buy a new one, but I’m not sure that’s a cost effective way to deal with the problem. In other words, you can call me cheap. Last year, my computer started making a disturbing whirling noise, and I was afraid it was on its last leg. We did a little research and figured out it was the power supply. The pc power supply on my computer not only handles the incoming power, it has a fan to keep the computer cool. At times, the fan would stop working, and I knew that wasn’t good.

Once the fan started giving out, I knew I had to either get a new computer or I had to get a new pc power supply. My husband is somewhat good with things like this, but he’s just guessing when he takes something apart. As nervous as I was, I allowed him to open the computer and he cleaned out the fan. While doing this, we noticed the pc power supply was exceptionally easy to remove and replace. The fan worked again for a while, but started to conk out again.

I got on the Internet and looked up pc power supply, and saw that I could find one for under a hundred dollars that could be shipped to my home. Sometimes, the parts to fix a computer cost more than a new one, so I wasn’t sure what the price would be. As you can imagine, I was immensely relieved. We ordered the part and it came three days later. My husband easily installed the new pc power supply, and it has worked like a dream ever since. Best of all, because I work online, the replacement part was a tax write off.

If you hear the fan in your computer acting up, don’t panic too much. It might just be your pc power supply. These are easy to replace, and won’t cost you a lot of money. Just make sure you find out the model number and that you are ordering the correct pc power supply unit for your particular computer. If you don’t think you can replace it, find someone to do it for you. However, let them know you know it is an easy procedure and don’t let them charge you too much to do it. A new pc power supply will give your computer a few more years of life before you have to replace it.
