Hi. First, let me say thanks for taking a look at my issue, and happy holidays.

I'm afriad I don't have too much info. My mother asked me to take a look at her comp, and when I asked what the probelm was she stated "it won't start up", little did I know she was being literal.

So the issue is this. When the power switch on the PSU is switched on there is a flicker of power (the power indicator on the front of the PC lights and the fans come on, both just for a small fraction of a second). After the power is switched off there's a very feint sound which seems to originate from the PSU... it resembles a camera flash charging up only in reverse and very breif.

This has all led me to think the problem is likely the PSU. It is an EAGLE LC-A300ATX. I've searched the net for any information on it, but can't find anything. It appears Tsunami makes a PSU by the same item #, but that was the closest I could find.

This brings two basic questions:

1) Do you think it IS the PSU causing the problem?

2) If so, how would I go about replacing it?

It depends on the make and model of the PC. Most PC's take a standard ATX power supply, but others (like Dell) use proprietary units - which also cost a lot more. Since the description states that it's ATX - then I'd suspect that it's what you have.

eBay has at least 2 Eagle power supplies for sale.

A google for LC-A300ATX will show you a lot of results.
