Like I said the other PSU should work for you as long as it has the correct connections for everything.
600 watts normally will work for everything without a problem.

Bummer - :)

The connections were not the same, so it would not fit directly.
There would need to be quite a few alterations, as I previously mentioned the faulty unit was a custom made one.
Even if I delete one of the 2 CD / DVD players the connectors will not match.

I am still getting all the bad 12 Volt readings and it seems to cause a few minor problems.
I think it will need another PSU when I can get one, but that may be a while - - - -:unsure:
Until then I will just have this lappy to play on.

Again - Thinks for the help :yes: - And back to school (even if it will be a bit slower).

I would highly recommend a Corsair 80 plus certified PSU in either a 600 to a 700 watt wattage.

A good quality 400-450W such as Antec Neo ECO range, will be more than sufficient to power those specs stably Ron. With the 450W allowing for a little expansion down the path.

noknojon, where in Australia are you mate?! :)

Hi Troy -

I'm near Geelong Vic , and I don't get to Melbourne very much.
About 25 kms south of Geelong , on the coast.

Thanks for any ideas -

EDIT - The main problems are the way the maker (custom made) put 2 CD units in and the fittings do not quite match.
This means I would be guessing on a few connectors, plus the start button is not connected normally.
I have a ASUS P5B M/board manual but it is not 100% helpful.

Haha you are a long way away!

Perhaps if you could take some photos to explain what you mean and upload them. We'd be able to pick everything quickly for you.

Mainly just being able to suggest places and components you can get from that are and not from somewhere here in the states is what I meant more by it. :)
