I need to replace the PSU in my daughters Presario 6000 M/N 6350CA with the PSU out of an IBM 6285 M/N G1U. The only difference I can "SEE" is that the P3 connectors are different. The usual thin, flat, white connector on the IBM and a 1/4" square connector on the Presario. Anyone know the colour codes, as the IBM wires are yellow, black, black, red and the Presario is orange, orange, black, black. Just a thought.

For the reason for the change, see my post in the XP forum titled - Idiot kids and hard drives!

Thank you.
Greg

If you want the Presario 6000 to last & maybe work right you would be much further ahead buying a PSU that will actually work in the unit instead of trying to cobble one together that doesn't belong in it.

EVERYTHING in a computer connets to , & depends on, the PSU one way or another.

That is the ! thing you don't want to cobble together.

That was sort of the gist of the, just a thought. I'd pretty much decided on that approach, I just thought I'd ask.
If you were to ask my wife, a blown light bulb around here is my fault.

Thanks mate.
Greg.

So I completely removed the power supply and left it on the work bench for two weeks. Yesterday I said what the hell and put it all back together. Well, if the damned thing doesn't work like nothing had ever happened.
As a side note, I tried several hundred times to reformat an 80 gig laptop hard drive ( vista to xp ) but it would fail within hours. Took out the hard drive and left it on the work bench for two months. Put it back in this morning and if the damn thing isn't still working. I will scan my work bench tonight and see if I can't find the face of Jesus or Mary or something.
I'll take pictures if I find anything Holy.

I have a dead computer.
Will you put it on your workbench for awhile ?

I've had it on mine for over a week & it hasn't got any better. :thumbsup:

Any how, glad you have a healing workbench !
