power supply

Hi. I just found out after three years of owning the Inspiron 560 that I could install a second hdd. I proceeded to install it but the clip that connects the hdd broke. I have the PC attached to the second clip. Can I repair the primary clip(not the data cable) or do I need a new PSU. Where do I buy a PSU for the Inspiron 560? Any suggestions will be appreciated. deanie44

If the SATA power connector is broken, you can use a power "Y" cable from the good SATA power connector for both hard drives. That is is cheaper than buying a new power supply.

Here is a sample of what you need, from newegg.com CLICK ME

Although you won't need a new power supply with the adapter cable, if you have the full size case model 560 and not the 560S model, it uses a standard ATX style power supply. If its the compact case model 560S, a TFX style power supply will fit.

Thank you

Thank you fireberd for helping me. That is just what I need. I have an Inspiron 560 MT not the slim tower. Is there instructions on the internet on how to install it. deanie44

Nothing much to using the adapter. Plug the good power connector to the adapter and then plug each end of the adapter to each hard drive.. Power off the PC before opening the case and installing it.
