Dell outsource their manufacturing across the world and each manufacturer and market has a different Dell P/N even though the spec from Dell is the same.  Because these PSUs fit at least 2 other desktop format PCs the numbers increase further!

For your 250W Desktop 3010 (or 7010 or 9010!)  all the following part numbers will get you the same component but made for different markets by different manufacturers!
(Depending on the Part Catalogue being used they may all be preceded with a zero)

- CYY97
- K2H58
- 77GHN
- X3KJ8
- PDF9N  

If you have no regular supplier for components I'd probably take a chance with that well known online auction site for one removed from surplus stock.  Dell don't sell  what they consider non-user serviceable parts direct so their online parts list will just consist of RAM and HDDs

thanks!  How'd you get that list of equivalent part numbers?  I'm seeing similar lists on ebay auctions, but just by luck.  Love to be able to go to a (dell!?) page and type 1 in and see all the other part numbers that are direct replacements.  I can dream : )

Ah, different markets. Different voltages. DIdn't think of that : )

Yes that would be great wouldn't it :)

Dell keep their non-user serviceable parts catalogue very much to themselves and their partners so there's a bit of cheating involved!

eBay is actually not a bad source for the range of part numbers but don't rely entirely on it as sellers there sometimes get confused too!

There are a few large parts resellers who have the Dell catalogue linked to their online website database (eg (other retailers are available!)) so you can verify what each P/N relates to but a lot of it is simply getting good with Google!
