    Possibly a failed hard drive that you would need to replace - might want a technician to check for you and replace it if needed.

If you use the IDE connector, there is no need for the analogue wires if you have a good quality sound card.

Is the power supply unit of compaq Evo W4000 could be replace by other brands?


This power supply is quote HP, "250 W Power Supply (PFC)". Almost any power supply will provide that much power. The problem is in a mini tower, the shape has to be matched and that limits you generally to the manufactures PS. Here is one that will replace yours. http://www.codemicro.com/store/product/243891002/New

If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.
