In my grandma's PC, the PS just went. It was working fine the one week I was there then the next week......It wouldn't come on.. I imediatly thought it was the PS and installed a different PS, but it wasnt the right size. I managed to get the {S to fit in so that i could screw it in and it works good. Now what do I do with the other PS?? Should I throw it out....or should i try to fix it????

Congratulations on you repair.

A note of caution. The PSU has capacitors that will hold a charge for a very long time, if you were to discharge these to your person it could be dangerous.

Other than a fuse there isn't really much that you would be able to repair. The fuse is pc mounted which would mean removing the board from the case to access the solder joints. This makes the leads to the capacitors accessible making this a potentially dangerous situation.

Personally...I would dispose of it in an environmentally safe manner.
