    Tap on the images to get the high res image. The forum turned them into low res thumbs, not me!

    Unfortunately the forum resizes all images when you upload them, and as a result these images are only 210x280 pixels and we are hardly able to make out the writing on the PSU. It would be better to upload them to something like imgur.com and then link them to your post.

    Any ideas what the hell this thing is, and can it be replaced?

    Thanks!
    By any chance, is this the Mitsubishi computer you were talking about in another topic concerning the keyboard/mouse ports? If so, you've got a proprietary computer! Pretty much nothing interchangeable with a "clone" 486. I doubt a standard type PSU will fit. If you were able to find one that did fit, you'd have to install the connector from the original PSU to make it work.

    Hi,
    Yes it is indeed that PC. It does have PS/2 input for the keyboard, and I found a working power supply on eBay. I'm now having other issues lol!!
