Having problems with your HP Compaq d530 SFF PC Desktop ?

Refurbishing for a charity, PSU's failing regularly.

\015 Does anyone know if this a common failing? We refurbish for a spinal charity, and the units are donated by a local hospital - but we are having a surprising number fail upon being connected to the power supply and switched on. The units are clean, and fairly free of dirt and grime. Any info would be welcome!\015
