Packard Bell PSU required

  Giggle n' Bits 12:22 09 Jul 2003

trying to obtain a new replacemnt PSU made by FSP Group its model No. is "245-60GP" which is a 245 Watt PSU.

The problem I have found is this PSU has its monitor power from the rear of the PSU and the impossible to find is it even powers the Mounted Monitor Speakers by a small 12V DC Jack which is also in the PSU rear facia.

I see FSP Group no longer have these. Does anyone know if anyone have any stock left.

Must also have 2 fans one to extract from over CPU and one to blow out air.

Personally I think they no longer exist or make a compatible option but I may be surprised. Maybe PCA Tech staff or Furm user here may have had this problem.
HELP ! me to help my damsel in distress.

Don't interpret this as swearing but, what about asking PC World?

Most Packard Bell computers are sold through PCW so they, more than anyone, should have an old unit that they can "give" you or be able to locate something for you.

Are they anyone's friends??

You might have to badger them to sort through their castoffs.

may try another branch. I am surprised that no one else has found this PSU replacement. Is my mistress the only P.Bell owner in uk with a non replaceable PSU with the extra bits as above?.

Will close post tomorrow.

I had a PB imedia 4800 and wanted to upgrade the mobo so that I could use faster ram, onboard lan, etc.. Checked the spec's first and found that I needed a mATX or FlexATX as it is only a small case.
Got an Epox Ep-8kmm+ and fitted it into the case only to find that the connectors for the front usb ports and power buttons/led's wouldn't plug into the board. This meant me getting a new case which in turn lead me to build a completey new system.
It seems to me that PB go out of their way to use the most obscure parts they can find just for the hell of it.
P.S. I have an 18 month old imedia base station for sale if anyone's interested.

See if they can fetch you the required part. I will have a look to see if I can find any source for you.

The other number was normal 24 hour tech support for out-of-warranty. As you know what you need just phone the new number here, cheaper and more to the point.
