Hi all, all of a sudden my HP Desktop decided to power off. Checked the wall plug no power. One of the switches on the main board had tripped.  Now wall plug is working but desktop won't power up and no green light at the back of PSU. I need some work done tonight, has anyone got a spare 300W PSU as I believe PSU has blown for some odd reason due to the trip or overload??
I am around East Auckland. Model number is fh-xd301myf but hopefully any 300W should fit. Can any one think of anything else that could have gone wrong.Thanks

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you.

Most likely the power supply input capacitor has popped. Easy to fix, but may not be the only fault and/or other capacitors might also be on their way out. I'm also out East.
