Having problems with your Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop ?

Power supply repair/service costs?

\015 It looks as if i am going to need to bring my pc in for service. My pc will not boot and I believe it is the power supply after researching forums and manuals. This is something i will not do myself. Does anyone know the potential cost for this issue and once replaced will my computer be back to normal? Because my main concern is my data which I have not backed up probably ever.\015

Answers :

When the psu is replaced providing there is no other problems it should be fine and a psu is not that expensive to replace but the engineer will charge you for it and his time however its fairly straight forward to do it yourself by just unscrewing the psu from the towers usually just four screws and remembering what cable goes where don't worry to much the cables are designed to only fit one port
I think it will not be soo heavy expenses i f u will buy new one or repair it but suggest to buy new one it is the cheapest part in the pc ..and the pc will work properly\015\012
