When powering up my A2000 (at least, when trying to), my A2000's
power supply only makes some very soft `ticking' sounds, no HD
spinning, no display, nothing else. I concluded that the power
supply may be broken.
I was a little bit shocked to discover that original A2000
power supplies cost about $150, so my question is: can I replace
it with a standard dirt-cheap power supply (for instance a PC
one)? Will it fit? Are the connections the same? Cabling? How
much power do I need, as the original power supply appeared to
be only just sufficient enough?
Questions, questions, questions...
