XE2, flashing orange power light, PSU?

Hi all, I have an optiplex xe2 SFF which has developed an orange flashing light at switch on, and will not power on. Problem started intermittently, but is almost constant now. See attached video:

Now from reading online I suspect the PSU. I see it is a 315w model in the xe2, which is higher wattage than those in the 3010, 3020 etc. 

Where red would be the best place to source one in the UK? 

Thanks

Thanks, but I think the one you’ve LinkedIn to is for the earlier XE, not the XE2. It uses a 315w PSU, part number VX372. 

Im struggling to find one in the UK, and am wondering why the xe2 doesn’t use the same 255w psu as the 3020 etc

Since this is one of the itty Bitty 8 pin jobs you could go the ugly route and remove the power supply and snake the wires in from the outside thru the hole.  That's the its ugly but it works method.  They seem to only use 7 of the 8 pins so you may need to modify the adapter to get it working.  The black wires are Ground and the white wires are 12v and the purple is 12vSB, Green is PSON.
