From the symptoms I see on my computer, very likely its PSU has burnt. (sudden freeze while running; sudden power off while running; not powering on at all).
This is an HP Pavilion Slimline s5227c model. 2 years old.
After serching internet I decided to go with Seasonic PSUs because of their efficicency and stability.
I was thinking to buy "SeaSonic SS-300TFX Bronze 300W TFX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - OEM" from newegg online.
Will this fit in my small case? This is the first time I would replace PSU. I'm beginner in terms of HW knowledge/experience. This way I could learn and save ~100 buck of repair. The reaosn I want perfect fit because I don't want to do any modification in my case.
Please suggest any other model (of Seasonic or other brands) if that would fit more.
Your concern is valid. I had the same doubt in my mind and that's why wanted to confirm from expert people on this forum . I have ordered, and it's on its way ...Though, current PSU's (from HP) fan is also bit higher. I wish it fits without much hassle.
