Power supplies, along with hard drives, are "wear items" and need to
be replaced after a few years. This is usually due to cheap fans in
them, as you experienced. If you want to continue using your computer,
replace a power supply. You can also vacuum it, but with good
likelihood, the fan is going bad.
The stock power supplies are usually slightly too small for the load.
When replacing a failed power supply, go a size larger if at all
And when replacing fans, also go larger if possible.
Rule of thumb: Failure rate doubles for every 10 degree C rise in
