Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Compaq Presario keeps rebooting

\015 I have not lost anything, but the suggestion is that I should get a new power supply-perhaps uninterrupted. Is there a way that I can find out what the voltage is on the one presently there? I am trying to minimize downtime, so would like to do comparison shopping for the part before I remove the current power supply\015

Answers :

If you open the computer case and remove the power supply, you will find a sticker on the top that shows it's specs. what you need to know though is not the voltage, but the wattage. however, that might not be the problem. if the computer randomly reboots it is more likely to be an overheat issue than anything else. i would watch your processor fan and see if it comes on when you push the power button.
If you get a power supply for a Compaq it needs to be a special power supply that will fit into the compaq case. There are no uninteruptable power supplies that install inside the case. There are always several compaq power supplies on sale on Ebay with a Buy it Now option
