[SATLUG] Dell Power Supply

One note about dell's I recently found out myself...watch the case design. I
just had to replace a power supply in a dell (not sure which model) but the
crazy thing had a hole in the case for the power plug only, not an open
back, and had to be specific for that model.  My method (after owner's
permission)? Make the hole bigger and more accommodating, making a regular
supply work...even though my metalwork skills aren't the best, but at least
it works now.

Subject: [SATLUG] Dell Power Supply

Looking for a spare Dell power supply for an Optiplex GX240 that was donated
for a refugee family.  None of the three spares that I have are a match, so
I'm looking for some help from the list.  Dimensions of the power supply in
a similar Dell (a Dimension 2400) are approximately 5 1/2" X 4 1/2" X 3
1/4".  I suspect the GX240 unit is rated at 250W.  Any help will be greatly
appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
