I am trying to get a new power supply for my HP S3842UK Slimline PC. I have been unable to get the part number from HP directly and wondered if anyone could help. It doesn't have to be a HP part, a generic one would suffice. Can anyone point me in the direction of a new power supply unit?

Many thanks,

Lisa

Hi, is that the real long skinny one? The old one should have a part number on it.

The used ones I have laying around all have a HP part number on the white label. I had two different slimlines here and the power supplies were different.

Once you locate the power supply part number my guess is any replacement will have to be from HP or maybe EBay / amazon. There are no generics with that form factor. Not to mention that if they are like the older models I have here the power plug is much smaller than a regular ATX power supply uses.

Good Luck

I know on many of the Dell slims, 1U power supplies have the same measurements. I think about D.200 x W.100 x H.40 mm.

Not sure on HP slims as I have not worked on one yet for a PSU problem.

Only problems I ran into is sometimes the OEM PSUs have certain mounting brackets ets particular to that case/PSU. I usually had to do some minor bracket fabrication to get a proper fit.

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

Hi

Good locate on that power supply. If they are in the US that should maybe do it.

I forgot to Ask LisaKP where they are located, US, UK

Cheers

Hi all,

Thanks for the replies. In answer to Roger's question, I am in the UK. Having looked at the link posted by killerx525, they do ship to England, so that might be just the ticket :-)

I have one question - is it easy enough to replace? I have upgraded hard drives and memory before. Is there anything to watch out for when replacing a power supply?

Thanks,

Lisa

<<Is there anything to watch out for when replacing a power supply?>>

:hysterical: , as long as you disconnect all the cables, including the cable leading to the power outlet/power strip...you will be around to post:).

System Specs

Manuals , you amy want to refer to the Upgrading/Servicing Guide sometime.

You may mock, Louis but unfortunately either I have screwed up fitting the PSU or that wasn't the problem after all.

The new PSU arrived yesterday. Having opened up the computer, I managed to extract the old one. It was only attached by three leads. One 24 pin plug that goes into the motherboard, and two power leads that were plugged into the hard drive and Bluray/dvd player. These were the only three leads that were plugged into the old PSU. I took out the old unit and inserted the new one, fitting the three leads and the computer will not turn on. When I press the power button, nothing at all happens.

I have downloaded generic instructions for the fitting of a PSU from the internet and they talk about a white fourpin plug that also seems to go to the motherboard. There is one of these leads on the new PSU, together with some other leads which I do not seem to have use for. Is it imperative that I use the leads with white ends? If this 4 pin plug is supposed to go to the motherboard, can anyone please give me some guidance as to where it is supposed to plug as I can not locate anywhere that it might go?

Those other leads are for other models. They are there because it needs to work in more than one model and some may need them.

If you removed three leads then that is all that were needed.

At this time one question. Did you switch the power supply to use the UK mains voltage? There may be a little, usually red, slide switch marked 120/240

Having bought from a USA vendor the power supply may be set to the USA mains voltage of 120Volts rather than the UK mains voltage of 240Volts.

I hope that is all it is and that no other parts are knackered.

Roger
