stop error

Replace the power supply.

Depending on the form factor of your system (AT or ATX), you should have one or two leads from the power supply into your systemboard. Then verify that one of the power supply connectors connect to your hdd. Make sure the flat cable from the system board connects into the hdd as well. Then power up the system. Do not touch anything inside while the system is powered on.

If the fan on the power supply turns and you still get the same error, then look at trying another hdd, cable, etc.
