There's about a 1 in 100,000,000,000 chance that the guy will have any idea what PSU is in your computer.

yep... so expect a thread..... but if it turns out to be a quality power supply would i WANT to take it apart?.....

If it's still under warranty then no. Otherwise, why not. But the chances of it being a quality psu is about the same as the repair guy knowing exactly what psu it is without taking it out and looking at it.

he took it out and looked at it before, he took reference of all of the parts in the case.... my dad asked him to.... he also took all of the driver disks for a while.... until i asked him to give them back.....

you mean that it won't damage the psu?

If it was from 2007, and as generic as it sounds. I doubt the PSU is under warranty.

I have a question for you OP. It could be possible to tear apart that PSU of yours, and figure out who manufactured it. But what do you intend to gain from this knowledge?

I bought a liquidation special 20 dollar case that came with a 450 watt PSU. The PSU is rather light, and shoddy worksmanship. I use it to test out fans, pumps, etc. But I haven't bothered tinkering with it; I know it was built with cheap components.

If it works, it works; why mess with a good thing?

Now if I was building a highend PC; I'd make sure I purchased something that was reviewed, and had good results; because I wouldn't want my PSU do be the downfall of my new sandy bridge rig, etc.

well.... i am not the one who wants to take it apart... i will if it won't damage the psu.... or if it turns out not to be generic, there is a slight possibility it might be a corsair.... so it MIGHT be a quality psu... i don't know..... you don't either.... also i know for a fact it is not under warranty... unless there is a psu that comes with a 5 year warranty......

Simply taking the cover off of it (which is all you would really need to do) wouldn't do any harm to the psu. It's only when you start removing the circuit boards, switches, etc. that you stand a good chance of screwing it up. While it is more dangerous to remove the cover off of a psu than it is removing the side panel of a computer case to reveal the motherboard, graphics card, ram, etc., it basically amounts to the same basic concept. You are simply removing an access panel. That will reveal the inside of the psu well enough to determine what you (or others here in the thread) would want to know. Normally all that is required is removing 4 number 2 phillips head screws and cutting through the warranty sticker. If it has a fan mounted to the cover you would either have to be careful with how you move the cover or unplug the fan from the circuit board. That would be the only tricky part, but I nothing to be overly concerned about. Just be sure to unplug the psu from the wall then press and hold the power on button down for 30 seconds to drain the capacitors prior to removing the psu from the case and opening it up.
