Hello,
I recently purchased this PSU for my dell inspiron 620 .

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I purchased this to replace my broken PSU unit that came with my standard cased Dell inspiron 620.

As soon as the PSU arrived I attempted to slide it it but the PSU does not slide in. It is the same size as the other psu but then I noticed it is a little bit bigger because it gets stuck by the brackets from the standard case.

Is there a way to remove these brackets?

If not, what PSU unit should I get now... I was looking for something with a bit more power.

Best solution

Well Dells are special - they have done all kinds of non-standard stuff. It is not a "standard" case if that supply won't fit in. I don't have any words of wisdom on alternatives unfortunately.

I once installed a standard ATX PSU in a dell and had to hack at the case somewhat to get it to fit well enough,
