Hi Ehj/Burrcm

My system was powered off for long time , when I power ON it works but on second time when I try to plug power cable to the wall socket, it sparked, Weird. So my case seems the exact case what burrcm said above. I will google n find if any one can replace the enclosure or replace power uni.

thnks

To take the PSU apart, there should be 4 little screws on the bottom of the casing (the grill side that faces the cpu heatsink).
You might need to spread the sides of the casing a little to get it loose. And take it off slowly, because you don't want to mess up any wiring that might be in the way.

Any PSU should work. But watch out for psus that are long (rear fan to drive bay). You don't want to be rubbing the back of the cd/dvd drives.
