Need help with Power Supply replacement
A problem with power supply prompted me to search out a forum to get help from people who are more knowledgeable than me.
I have a 6 year old Gateway computer that I'm trying to find a new power supply for. The specific part that I currently have is no longer being manufactured and I haven't been able to figure out which power supply will be compatible and fit my case without (hopefully) any modification.
The old power supply is for an ATX mid-size tower, the type that is held in place by a plastic clip. It's an Astec, 250W, 3.3 volt supply, p/n 6500470. Someone on ebay claims to have the exact part, brand new, but I'm skittish about purchasing something like this on ebay, plus he wants $65 for it. I've also been looking for a replacement on newegg but I can't tell which one might fit without any modification. BTW...Gateway has been no help with this since the computer is out of warranty and the power supply is not a big ticket item for them to sell.
Can anyone please tell me which power supply will work with my computer?
