Hello,

So you got the power supply! Excellent! Now the hard part! :)

Please realize that changing a power supply is really quick... like under an hour. However, since this is going to happen via a forum, it could take days, so please be patient. Also, the computer in question will be down all during this time.

The best way for someone to do something they've never done before is to take pictures along the way. So, what you need to do is take a picture (or several) of the back of your computer so you know which connections go where so when you put all back together, you have a reference.

Once you're done, remove all connections from the back of the computer. It makes it easier to work on.

After that, I need you to remove the side covers and then take more pictures of the inside of the computer. What you need to capture is where all the wires from the power supply connect to various places. Take good pictures so you get all the connections. If you can post a few here I can check them out before we proceed and let you know if we need more. I only need the pictures of the inside of the computer.

Sorry for my delay in responding. I had some of those nasty hijack Trojans again (which is what brought to this site for help initially.) Of course, you know they disrupt everything. Mcafee just isn't effective at fighting this stuff.. But MBAM & Kaspersky seem to have resolved this problem. So this computer is back to normal.

So back to the other computer and photos. :) I am going to pick up a digital camera tomorrow and upload the photos.

I would highly recommend you visit the Malware Forum and create a post. But, before you do, go HERE and run through all the steps. Malware is very dangerous, especially if you use your computer for any kind of financial stuff... banking, bills, etc. I would feel much better if you had your computer checked out by the Malware folks and received a clean bill of heath from them, so please consider it.

So back to the other computer and photos. :) I am going to pick up a digital camera tomorrow and upload the photos.

Gee... I'm sorry you have to go out and purchase all this stuff! :)
