I have a Sony Vaio desktop which has blowm its power suppy. The technician I've consulted proposes installing a non-Sony power supply - however this will leave a small hole.

I am concerned about dust getting into the case but is this a SERIOUS WORRY?

It will take several weeks [he tells me] to receive a power supply from Sony. However, is it worth the wait - or will the proposed solution serve just as well?

Any suggestion about how to close the small holes that will result from a non-generic power supply?

Advice and suggestions, please.

You dont say where these holes will be but it should be possible to close them with a small piece of plastic of similar colour Araldited in place.

THANKS FOR THE SUGGESTION - BUT IS IT A GOOD IDEA TO GO WITH A NON-GENERIC POWER SUPPLY?

I would think that provided it will physically fit and the voltage and output is correct I see no reason why not. It`s only function is to supply the correct current to the right places. Probably be cheaper than Sony too. Hope this helps.
