That depends. What type of a CPU are you going for? What model is the power supply in question? How old is the power supply? 250W is not a lot for a modern system, but if you're using a low TDP CPU and onboard graphics, you could probably get away with it. Since I got the motherboard for only $40 a...

My recent success in fixing a computer that'd been given to me (by replacing the motherboard...for FORTY DOLLARS!) has me in "build...BUILD!! !" mode again. My first (re)build was of an old Gateway that wouldn't boot any more, and I replaced almost everything, including the power supply. T...

My wild guess would be something related to the BIOS/CMOS chip, and I would try the chip from the other board if it is in a socket so it can be removed. Other than that, or even beforehand, I would check the BIOS version on the new board against whatever the latest download from Dell might be. Ther...

Asperger's and HFA were two different names for the same thing. You think they combined them just for the hell of it? You think the leading experts in the field are having a laugh by saying there's no clear evidence they're any different? No, Asperger's and HFA were not the same thing. Asperger's w...

I know my friend meant well but this frustrated me. I guess it's my first case of "but you don't look autistic." Like. I'm trusting you with this information and trust me, I have enough pride that I really would NOT want to identify with something that others would judge harshly. I'm reac...

The person making this claim reminds me of a nut who posts in the comment sections of YouTube videos on autism. She claims autistics are brain damaged and that melt downs are seizures. Why? Because her child has seizures and is (she claims) brain damaged. The child is also diagnosed as autistic. It'...

In the other thread I explained it turned out the power supply was fine, even running one of my computers for a day or two. That left the motherboard as the next possible suspect. I found several eBay sellers had them...for $40. (Dell seems to be selling them for nearly $200. I know, cheap may mean ...

I tried the original power supply in the second computer I built (which has been sitting around for months doing nothing...if the power supply wrecked it, no extreme loss.) The computer booted and ran fine...for a couple days. (I eventually restored my original power supply, so the Dell one can be u...

It could also be that some other failing internal component on that PC is causing increased current draw beyond what the PSU can supply without shutting down to protect itself. Check fans rotate freely, and try with as many things as possible disconnected (optical drives, additional hard drives, ad...

Could be the cord you borrowed from the other computer isn't compatible with the dell computer you have. You might be able to find a cheap cord on ebay, just make sure to type in the computer you have so then it can show options for that computer. You may have misunderstood. This isn't a power supp...

...be sure any other power supply you might get is actually compatible with your specific Dell. At least in years past, Dell did some funny things with pins and wiring so only their OEM stuff would work. THAT is what I'm afraid of. He only paid something like $45 for this new power supply, tho' it ...

sounds like a faulty cord to me...it should certainly give the computer power if you plug it in, you shouldn't have to hold a button. Maybe if you go to a dell store or a store that sells them they could give you a proper cord. I mean you can order ok cords off the internet but there isn't much gua...

A friend was ready to trash his computer because it seemed to be dead. He'd been told it was the power supply. The computer is a Dell XPS 8300. He ordered a replacement power supply from an Amazon seller. I told him I'd see what I could do, and today he gave me the computer and the new power supply....

I just saw something really weird, and she was called out on it... She says she's thinking of going to "vaccine court" to deal with the harm done to her son, the harm she says caused his autism. "Vaccine court"? If this wasn't so sad I'd be laughing. I actually started to. As far...

There's some crazy woman who's been posting on YouTube videos about autism. She says she's the mother of an autistic son, and is saying that autistics are brain damaged and that when an autistic child is having a meltdown, they're actually having a seizure. From what's been dragged out of her, her c...

If you are autistic, you do not have schizophrenia. It does prohibit you from being in the military. There have been situations where NT parents of autistic kids have had to struggle with the military for trying to get the kid to join. The parents explain the son is neurologically impaired, and the...
