Knowing how to repair computer power supply will keep you from spending money on new parts. The process is simple. Just because your computer’s power supply doesn’t seem to be working right does not mean that it needs to be replaced. When a computer’s power supply goes down, it can have a variety of issues, including the inability to turn on, poor performance, and even complete shutdown. If your PC is running slow or seems to be bogged down, you need to take action as soon as possible.
The first thing you will need to do is check all the connections. You should make sure that all the cords leading to the power supply are in good operating order. Bad connections can prevent computers from getting power from the power supply. You should also check the outlet that the power supply plugs into to make sure that everything is connected correctly.
Next you should look at the problem itself. If you find that the computer’s power supply doesn’t recognize a specific device, such as a USB drive, then you need to either update its drivers, or uninstall it. However, if you have an error message saying something like “power failure”, then you know that your system has more serious problems. This is the time to call in a professional. There are several companies out there that specialize in how to repair computer power supply problems.
Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take yourself to solve this kind of problem. The first thing you will want to do is check to see if the power cord is plugged properly into the power source. Sometimes there will be a ground wire that needs to be secured to avoid electricity flowing through the power cord. Check to ensure that the ground wire is in good condition. Then you should plug the supply into a wall outlet, unplug the cord from the power outlet, and try to find the power switch or power button to turn the power supply off.
Another common problem people have is when their computers stop responding all of the sudden. For those who have a desktop computer, this can often be fixed by simply restarting the machine. If you are using a laptop, this problem can often be fixed by holding down the Alt key while starting the machine. You will then need to connect the AC adapter to the computer and run a diagnostics program. This step may also enable you to find the problem with your computer’s power supply; simply disconnect it and then reassemble it.
The last step involves taking apart your computer and replacing the various components. If you have a desktop computer, then this step may be accomplished with a Phillips screwdriver. If you have a laptop, then you will need a specific laptop repair kit or tool. For both models, you need to take the motherboard out in order to remove the video card and processor. After you have done this, you can replace the parts in reverse order and reinstall them.
