Hey guys,

wondering if I can swap out the PSU can be swapped out with a generic PSU. I heard that dell's need their own proprietary PSU.

Lights are on, fans are going, beeps are beeping, but no one's home..........

Thanks

Dell changes the wiring around on the board connector but beyond that they are ATX powersupplies.

Dell will sell you one if you're not under warranty.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
