I have an older PC that will not turn on, I'm assuming it is the power supply. Where is the best place to get a new or used power supply for an older (5-7 yrs.)Desktop? It is an FSP Group Power Supply Model #F300-A and I can't find it on their web site.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can pickup a new power supply at Fry’s, or any computer show. Any local mom & pop computer repair shop should be able to sell you one.

Before you buy a power supply though, you need to find out if the computer uses an AT or an ATX power supply. AT power supplies are extinct. If you have to have an AT power supply because of the age of your machine, then I would recommend raiding the thrift stores and finding an old computer that you can canabalize for parts.

    Amazon.com eBay.com Newegg.com Tigerdirect.com PCMall.com All of those sites will have power supplies. Since its 5-7 years old, you aren't going to need that much power...so don't waste your money on a 600W power supply when you only need 300W or less.
