Does anyone know if you can replace this power supply with a standard one? It appears to be an ATX with some kind of AT connector. The computer will not boot with just a regular ATX power supply plugged into the board. I have never seen anything like this before, so any help or information on what this is and how to replace it would be greatly appriciated.

It's not a standard supply.  I suppose you could modify an ATX supply to work by re-wiring the connector but you're probably better off getting a replacement from Dell or another supplies who has these.  Many common Dell parts are offered on EBay.

The things are pricy though. . .  unfortunately.

That's the bad thing about Dell and many other major manufacturers, is the proprietary equipment.

Doing some digging, you can find a whole GXi for the price of the power supply, lol.  Unfortunate,  but true.
