Packard Bell
Akson Aug-03-00 08:17 PM
I have a Packard Bell case that was given to me (motherboard ruined in a flood) and it appears that the power supply is just a typical ATX power supply, the computer model is Multimedia 5615 (96-23). Does anyone know if this is an ATX power supply or is it proprietary?

http://216.219.192.76/packardbell1/english_packard_bell_canada.htm might be a good place to start. Be sure the wattage rating is sufficient for what you want to use the power supply. Many PB power supplies are on the weak side. Search this Forum for more info on power supply ratings and look at How to build an Athlon Computer (http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/buildcom/athlon/ath_1.htm) for some tips which may apply to other processors as well.

Thanks, I've been to the site, they don't have th model I have. And the US PB site doesn't work. Suprise, suprise. Yeah, it's a 200W p/s. It does appear to be an ATX p/s, and it works, some of the time. So, I'll probably just ditch it and not worry about it.
