Power Supply

In computers (or any other electroic device), a transistor that converts high-voltage alternating current (AC) coming from a wall outlet to low-voltage (usually 5:12 volt) direct current (DC) that the internal workings of the computer require. If the power supply is not functioning, nothing else in the computer will function.
