Yes. If the power supply is of a low wattage and has too many pieces of hardware connected to it, it can. Try buying a power supply with a wattage over 300.

One thing to check before replacing the power supply is the voltage selector in the back. If you use 120 volt power, then setting the power supply to 240 volts will cause the PC to only get half of the power it needs.

External peripherals with their own power supply will not impact the power supply or current in the computer. Printers and monitors usually get their power from the wall socket, not the computer, and the same goes for external modems that plug into the wall. Keyboards and mice take negligible power.

The power supply of the computer is where the electrical current from your outlet is sent and then dispersed throughout the components in your computer.

In order to supply power supply to your computer you would need an outlet plug near your computer. Then you can plug your computer into that and necessarily, use an extension.

The Power Supply (PSU) supplies power to the computer. It converts power from the wall (AC power) to DC POWER, which is the type of power computers use.

The "power supply" supplies power to a computer. A computer's power supply is a "switchmode power supply" responsible for converting the AC voltage from the wall into several DC output voltages.

Sometimes when people buy a computer power supply unit (PSU), there are several components in the box: a AC power cable to connect the power supply to the wall mains outlet, the power supply itself (PSU) that converts mains power into more useful forms of power, and one or more DC power cables that connect the power supply to the motherboard and other parts of the computer. (On a modular power supply unit, those cables can be detached from the PSU). A computer power supply is in a metal box that is difficult to open, so most people treat a computer power supply (PSU) as a single indivisible component. Inside a computer power supply is a transformer to help convert mains power into more useful forms of power, power diodes and power transistors typically mounted to a heat sink, and other components to help the conversion or to filter the power to meet EMC requirements, and often a fan to blow air on the heat sink to keep the transistors from overheating.

A computer power supply is used to provide power to a computer device. Every computer has one in order to operate. It comes in the form of a battery pack or adapter.

The power supply makes the computer run, without any type of power supply it would be impossible to run a computer. The mains power supply for a laptop and the power supply unit of a desk top, both convert the high AC voltage from the mains power and convert it to low voltage DC, for the electronics of a computer to use.

Power supply for computers is very important. A good power supply will give you a faster computer and will also be more efficient and use less energy.

The Personal Computer power supply is located on the computer tower. The cable that goes into the wall outlet plugs directly into the computer's power supply.

You can buy a power supply for a computer at any computer supply or office supply store. There are many of these stores in malls and they range in size from the Mom & Pop store to the large chain stores. There are also direct access sites to the companies who produced the computer and they could supply the specific power supply you request.

A computer that shuts down and reboots on its own often has an issue with the power supply. Replacing the power supply will often resolve the problem.
