I had such a terrible time trying to communicate.

    I am wondering though if no matter what I do that the power supply may be a continuous issue. If I could replace it and resolve the freezing then all would be great for me.
    Again it is an educated guess, not written in stone yet just from what i saw and can be causes of this issue. Do not have PC infront of me which makes it hard and online is not going to give me a diagram of it internally.
    Terrible i never dealt with HP never bought there brands. Sure dialed in America and at working hours.

    Can try another program, as these software are never exact.

    Well, maybe the program is off? Or could it be possible that this power supply is defective?

    Yes, these programs are a good reference, true way would be with a multimeter or probe. I never had to do this yet myself and without knowing actual part and way it is made. Wow, i can not even find there support number they have me going in circles on there page even to try to find it. Easy with companies like ASUS.

    If Power supply was that bad it would be shutting down the PC at times

    I do not understand "external" either. How can it be external? This is the smallest computer I ever owned. It is slim but everything is inside the tower. Where do I find this information about the computer? Is it on my computer somewhere?

    Yea, HP no longer likes phone calls. That is very obvious. I have the number somewhere though.

    Many companies outsource there support to other countries to save money. Most companies do this but have english speaking people.

    Aha! Yes, I do have that! And it does say right on it "65w"!

    Well, it should be easily replaceable then shouldn't it? Couldn't I buy another through HP or anywhere on the internet?
