Need a Power Supply upgrade for a ThinkCentre Desktop M55 8808 - 300 to 400 Watts if possible!

[ Edited ]

I have searched the Forum but with zero success.

 

I called and Email IBM and they passed the buck to Lenovo.

 

Does anyone know of a PSU upgrade for my System by: Manufacturer and Part Number?

 

Does such an upgrade even exist?

 

By some slim chance, might Lenovo sell such an upgrade?

 

IBM doesn't / won't or perhaps doesn't care.

 

Best regards,

 

Mike Lynch

From my experience upgrading the PSU in my M50 Mini Tower using an after market PSU it all works just fine as long as you have all the connections you need for the bits you are running.

I went from the standard 230Watt unit to a 400Watt unit and its all running like a dream.

 

Keeping you computer "original", is a nice idea, but it really limits what you can do with it.

Thanks but this is a Small Form Factor Desktop!

 

I also would like to find an Information Source on the Trinidad_Riser_Card that came with the System.

 

The Part Number: 41A7730 it listed as a Trinidad_Riser_Card.

 

I know this as it is etched on the Card itself.

 

What I would like to know about the Riser Card is: what are the Interface Adapters in it?

 

One is white and appears to be a PCI Adapter.

 

The other is Black and has several "very small" Interfaces on it.

 

If I could find out exactly what capabilities this Riser Card provides, I'd try and find a replacement that could provide two PCI Interfaces / Slots instead.

 

Thanks again for your help.
