I am using an hp pavilion a820n. The power supply konked out on me. I bought a new computer thru hp ( I needed to because this one is 4 + years old). I didn't use the old one for anything except surfing, e-mails, research for homework, using newsgroups. I only stored a few things that are non critical on files on that computer, but I would like to fire it up one more time at least to get some of the files that I do have on it, and transfer them to the new pc. ( no they are not porno files :thumbsup: )Does any one have any idea of a place to get a power supply for a slightly out of date desktop? Thanks in advance.

This probably has already been answered but why not take out the hard drive of the a820n?

You don't have to have that system running...to remove files from the hard drive.

Just connect the old hard drive to the new system, as a secondary drive.
