Would a generic power supply work in a Hewlett Packard Pavilion?

The blowed up HP supply is 100 watts and the 'even older but still works' supply is 120 watts.
Is there anything I need to pay attention to as far as connections go?
My wife and kids have turned that machine into the worlds largest photo album and it would completely ruin my day if I flocked it up.

The good old 100watt Bestec PSU's. :thumbsup:

I purchased a generic 250Watt?? replacement on eBay around $22 shipping included. Loud and the leads were a little short but it works.

Newegg sells replacements for the old Pavalions also, maybe a little better quality than the ebay specials. Would have bought mine from Newegg if I had known about them at the time I needed one.

I put an Antec in one. Size is an issue. I had to remove the front bezel and partially slide the optical drives out to install. Then put everything back together

OK. A bud told me that this power supply is a 120 watts.
All I can tell you is that according to the stickerage on it, it's a CSI Model:CS230P.
There is no indication as to the output wattage. Just voltage.
Google says I have no paddle on this creek.

If you google the model with the words power supply you should be able to find out what the wattage of the PSU is. It should be a ATX form factor, so buying another shouldn't be a problem, but as Mark has pointed out, getting the old one out and the new one in can be a challenge of you ingenuity.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Yeah, but you did it when others said you can't. That's a good feeling

OK, thanks.
Saying the Pavilion is a tight fit compared to the generic tower I'm taking the PSU out of, is like saying the space shuttle has the odd nut and bolt. This will not be a hangover project.
