power supplies keep overheating
 
alright my computer is kinda old its an hp.
the tower is kinda small.

but the power supply went out in it.
so i got a new one hooked it all up and it wouldnt run long at all.

so i took the power supply out and saw that the fan stopped running.
now im pretty sure if i get another one that itll do the.

any suggestions???

If they are overheating, try putting the PC in a better ventilated area, or add another fan to the inside. Also, used a can of compressed air to blow out the insides free of dust. And no, dont huff the compressed air after you are done cleaning your PC ;)

You can also put a small desk fan blowing across the back to help
