Hello  @ZoieNdGord

 

Are you saying you have an HP Desktop that you want to upgrade the power supply with, or a Dell desktop?

If its HP, what is the model number of the Desktop and why specifically are you needing to increase the power?

Hi,

 

The HP motherboard works with a standard ATX power supply.

 

The motherboard MCP61PM-HM , is quite old and has been known to have bad capacitors. And, you have the early version. 

 

It's time to move up and away to another PC.
