Dear all,

My PSU has blown in a HP Compaq DC7100CMT.

The HP replacement part is a strange shape and is fairly pricey in relation to the value of the computer and I was wondering what other options I have?

Is it possible to replace this part with a PSU that does not actually fit inside the case - ie one that just sits on my desk?

A friend of my recent had a similar issue with a proprietary power supply.
While this may not be the easiest solution. We ordered a new case with a power supply and transferred his hard ware over to the new case.
This gave us more room and space to expand/upgrade the unit as needed.
Below is a link to NewEgg.com for Cases with power supplies. This link filters cases to only show those with power supplies under $80 and with no side window.


Hope this helps!
