  1. My computer takes about 30 min to reboot, so i ran scans and did pcpitstop, it said something about poor performance with the video card. But in less than a month the blue screen has come up lots of times with some kernel msg, and later Blue Screen which wont go away so i have had to reformat it 3 times now. It still takes awhile for programs to load, even the homepage. I am so frustrated with this. Its about 3 years old, an E-machine with XP, 128mb of ram etc PLEASE HELP
    Thank you

    It depends where in the world you are!!!!

    Here in the UK they range from £15 upwards! The more you pay the better the quality you get, i personnaly wouldnt go below £25 and 450 watts for one!!!!

    Don't feel stupid asking questions, it's how we learn!!!!:)

    You will need a standard atx psu with a 20 way mobo connector and possibly a 4 way one too!!!!

    They are a standard size so a new one shoud almost drop right in!!!!

    Hope that helps!!!:)
