    Thx for the help Spanner and TrBot. I opened the case but I don't see anywhere on the power supply where it says the wattage. This computer was given to me also (homegrown ;) ), so no manual and nothing listed anywhere else on the pc (back/front or top/bottom). Know any programs that could tell me accurately? Other ways? Thx again.

    My power supply says 'Model name: ATX-250'. Does this mean mine is a 250 Watts power supply?

    I was a little surprised to find that even Everest, for all the other marvelous "system investigating" it does, couldn't do any better than just "ac line" for my power supply.
