I recently got an old RM Nimbus 486 from a friend...swopped it for a Compaq Contura 430C at a lanparty...but its been in his garden shed for 9 months, now has rust etc, which i managed to remove with steel wool, the interior looks ok but i dont entirely trust the psu...i can see cobwebs in the exhaust outlet, which i dont think is a very good sign:uhoh:, so i was wondering if anyone knows what sort of psu (wattage/voltage wise) it uses so I can replace it if necessary...I've done a bit of Googling but I only get a few pages of pertinant info and that doesnt mention the PSU at all. Its an AT system but the PSU looks like an ATX...or that could be me not being very observant... Any clues??:micro:

I seriously doubt a 486 has an ATX power supply.

It is an AT power Supply. Probably a 200 watt.

Is it one cable, like the ATX. If so, then it is probably proprietary, and irreplaceble.

If it is two flat connectors, then it is a standard AT. Here is an image I found. http://www.ultimatepcrepair.com/files/powconn.jpg
