I repair computers, but 'repairing' power supplies can be EXTREMELY DANGEROUS - and if you are not a certified 'bench technician', it may even be fatal. That's because there are numerous high-voltage leads and components inside the power supply... leads and components that you DO NOT WANT TO TOUCH OR BRUSH AGAINST IN ANY FASHION, lest they accidentally discharge stored voltages directly into your person. This is not wise - do NOT attempt to 'repair' computer power supplies yourself - replace the entire supply? Sure, that's relatively safe. But that the cover off and 'repair'? That is about as poor an idea as attempting to take the cover off and 'fix' an old tube tv set (voltages from which can also kill a grown person). Good luck, and be safe whatever you do.
