A have a machine whos power supply went out.  the one in there has a non-removable switch on it.  It's sodered and Shrink wrapped.  All the New Power supplys have the Removable switches and WON'T fit where it's supposed to go, the wires and connectors stick up too high.

Where can I find an AT style power supply without the removable switch????

You'll probably have to cut the wires off the old switch and solder them to a new power supply.

..or you might simply buy a whole new AT box for next to nothing and just move the computer into it's new home.

Gryphon,

Good point.  The last time I needed a new power supply they had 250W PS for $69.95 and a complete AT case w/250W PS for $39.95.  Go figure.  I bought the case, removed the PS, and threw the rest away...
