Is there a factory replacement for the PSU for the Inspiron 3847 that is a higher wattage than the 300W that comes installed?
I attempted to replace the PSU with a 400W unit out of another Dell and all went well until it was time to connect the harddrive cables. The drive is mounted cross ways in the case and the replacement PSU power cables end up being to high to install the case cover.
Thanks for posting.
