  • I've replaced several power supplies. I use a company called and have never been disappointed. They seem to be able to match any.

    No experience with Windows 7 but from what I've been told it is pretty good and little learning curve from Windows XP.

    Good Luck,

  • Usually when a computer takes a power surge it is the power supply that gets fried. Take it to a trusty repair shop and see what they say. I have my old 1998 Pavilion HP home computer still in storage. There's too much valuable info I still want to try and salvage on it, pictures mostly. When I lived in an old 1800's farm house, the T-Pole was right outside the door next to the drive, about 20 feet from where I was plugged into the 120 wall outlet with a cheap Radio Snack surge protector power strip. When it took a lightning hit, I lost it. My good friend has his own computer shop and found a NOS power supply in a PC magazine ad and it was back to life. I invested in a Wally World surge protector this time but apparently didn't matter as shortly thereafter, another lightning strike did it again and we couldn't find another Power Supply so it now sets stored in the barn. So, depending on the age of your PC, you may be able to just try a new power supply and go from there. Most likely you didn't lose any hard disc info...
