Power Supply Dying?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Sooo, I just went on a car trip (brought my PC tower with me), and when I got back the computer wouldn't turn on. It worked the entire time I was away on holiday, but wouldn't when I returned home. I went through the case and secured all the connections since maybe the road rattled it some, and I still couldn't get it to power up. Finally, I tried tilting the tower at different angles. When I laid the PC on its side, it turned on. If I raise it even 5 degrees, it immediately shut off.

Unsure of the cause, I started with the PSU and removed it from the case while keeping everything connecting. As I rotated the PSU, it would turn the system on at certain angles and not function in virtually every other position. So, the issues is definitely the PSU. I went ahead and secured it back in the tower and am currently using my PC with it lying on its side.

My PSU is the PC POWER S61EPS Silencer 610W. It's served me well but appears to be dying. I can't find it anywhere online. I reordered from two different places and both called me saying that they had it in stock online but it wasn't actually in their inventory.

What PSU is there that will replace this and work in my current system? My PC is a few years old now. I'm not looking to get a nice PSU, just one that works with what I have. I'm still using my "Phoenix" PC, which is shown below.

And you are sure its not a cable somewhere that has come loose?
Its a 7 year old PSU you got there so by moving it you might just have finished it off.

Yeah. Thanks. I'm thinking of building a new PC, but my budget is just so tight right now. This one still serves me well for most of what I do as I'm not gaming near as much anymore. Appreciate the links. A replacement PSU will work for now before I build a new rig I think.
