I have a damaged power supply that I need to replace for my Pentium 3 PC. It it 250 watts and 230 volts. i cannot find any replacement part for it. Will a 400 watts power supply work on it even some of the specs of the 250 watts is different.

For 250 Watts
AC~           Voltage             Current             Frequency
Input            220V~                4A                  50-60 Hz

DC          +3.3V  +5V +12V  -5V   -12V  +5VSB
Output     11A    18A  8.5A   0.5A  0.5A  1.5A

For 400 Watts
AC Input  220V 50/60Hz  8/4A
DC           +3.3V  +5V  +12V  -5V   -12V  +5VSB
Output     14A     25A     12A   0.5A  0.5A  2.5A

Wiil the 400 watts power supply work on my pc?

The bigger it is the less problems you will have.

Yes, you can use the 400 watt PSU - it will last much longer as it will not need to work so close to its design capability. The chances are you will never need to replace it.
