Difference between 40 pin LCD connector and 40 TTL connector

Q: Difference between 40 pin LCD connector and 40 TTL connector

I am working on a project and I have a Laptop monitor here that has a 40 pin LCD connector that I am trying to convert to HDMI to plug into an xbox 360. I have gone and looked for an 40 pin LCD to HDMI converter but all I could find was an 40 pin TTL to HDMI. Will this work? https://www.adafruit.com/products/2...2KF8Y_EOnrMVziicEfgwarUPZqSbe_j7LMRoCMFXw_wcB

Hi there. Please view this item

I am confused whether or not the antenna or cable will screw onto my wireless adapter card.

My wireless Adapter card has a SMA connector on it with the screw wedges on the outside rather than inside with a pin in the middle.

Heres a photo of a similar SMA connector - http://content.answers.com/main/content/wp/en-commons/thumb/9/90/200px-Gniazdo_RPSMA.jpg

The brand of the network adapter is the same as the brand of the antenna they are both D Link so youd think they would fit.
will the antenna or cable screw onto that?

thanks, jordan

Hi. I am new to building computers and have a question on fans. My case has three fans. Two of my fans have both pin connectors and molex connector attached together. How do I power the fans ?- do I need both connections?
thanks
 

A:Fans with molex connector and pin connector

The 3pin connectors are to plug directly in to the motherboard......if your motherboard does not have the 3pin connectors then plug the molex into the power supply

I am wanting to install a new video card. It has a VGA and a DVI output on it. The old card has only a EVC connector on it. From there it goes to a Y cable with 2 CRT monitors (VGA connections) coming off of it.

My question is. Can I use a DVI to VGA adaptor and hook both monitors to the new video card and do away with the T cable?

Thanks Bill
 

A:Can I change from a EVC connector to a VGA connector?

Most definitely. You can down convert form DVI to VGA, but not the other way around (inexpensively, anyway)

Me bad. Bought a new cheap MB (Biostar tforce 550) which has only one IDE connector.
But I want to connect an optical drive and a spare IDE HD.
I remember that using one IDE cable for the two could cause problems, and a hit in performance.
The first I think can be corrected by putting the HD first. But how big is the performance hit?
Does it only occur when using the optical drive?
Thanks

I'm buying a new PC tomorrow, but I want to keep my 250GB IDE drive in addition to a 250GB SATA drive. The motherboard I'm purchasing has one IDE connector, but I have two IDE devices that I want to connect. There's the 250GB hard drive, and my DVD burner. Will that be possible using just the one connector? I'm not sure what they mean by that, since I know IDE cables sort of have two cables in one.
 

A:Can I do this with one IDE connector?

If the cable only has one connector then you can buy one with 2 connectors on it.

If they mean that you only have one IDE connector on the board then might be a little trickier.

Hello, I'm about to purchase a GTS450 card and noticed it required one 6 pin pci-e power connector. However I only have an 8 pin pci-e power connector. Would this still work?
 

A:6 pin pci-e connector

Might check your 8 pin connector to see if it is a 6+2.
That means that 2 pins may be removable to allow
use as a 6 pin connector.
Check the cards package content list to see if it includes
a 4 pin molex to 6 pin pci express adapter.
If not,you can buy one pretty cheap.

Like many, I have CD-ROM problems, but mine is a little unusual. I have a 58x vanilla CD-ROM chained as a slave to a master Plextor 708-A DVD writer. Both are on the secondary IDE connector of an Asus P5GD1 board. This is the one with the RAID connector possibility on the secondary connector but the default on the Secondary connector is to IDE and I've left it that way. The two hard drives are chained master/slave to the primary and are working fine. Windows XP SP2, P4 3 Ghz, 1 GB RAM.

The CD-ROM shows up in Device Manager but freezes when I've tried to read a CD. The DVD writer works fine and will show anything when there is a disc in there. I've tried the usual workarounds, elminating the Upper and Lower Filters, removing the drives from Device Manager, zilch. In Event Manager, I keep showing Event 51 (paging error) and 11 (controller error) trying to use the CD-ROM. The Event 11 explanation says a "faulty cable" is the problem but I've changed cables twice.

What I'm thinking is that I currently have an 80-pin cable hooked up to the two optical drives and the Asus Secondary Connector which is made for an Ultra ATA 133/100/66 port and the motherboard asks for an Ultra ATA signal cable. Should that cable be a 40-pin connector rather than the 80-pin connector? Would that allow the CD-ROM to be read and will the DVD still work?

Thanks for any help here,

Hi, I acquired (for free) a dell Dimension E510 and it it does boot up. When I power it up, it makes a terrible beeping/whining noise and then powers down. The power indicator light starts to blink and I can't power up the computer again unless I hold the power button down for 10 seconds or I unplug the power and then push the power button again. If I disconnect the square 4 pin connector from the mobo, it does not make the beeping sound and the power indicator light stays solidly lit, Regarding the PSU 4 pin connector, I am getting 11.95 volts on each yellow wire (with a volt meter to the chassis) and (minus) - 2 volts on the black wires.
I have tried removing and replacing the cmos battery, disconnecting the modem card, hard dive. Its only when I unplug the 4-pin connector that the computer does not beep and turn off

What does the 4 pin connector supply power to?
Does it sound like the 4 pin connector is good?
Could the mobo be faulty?

Thanks, Bill

The extra 12V connector is used to supply the additional power needed for modern processors. It started with the P4s, however many Athlon boards use it also.

Some newer AMD64 and Prescott processor boards use the 24 pin atx connector instead of the 20 pin connector. Again this is to supply extra power.

See such sites as Cyber Guys... But most online stores have them... in prices ranging from $3.00 to $9.50 for the same thng. There are different qualities and different sizes, but there are basically two.. the SATA connector and the SATA power connector... You can get fancy looking "L" shaped sockets on the ends, and other gimmicks... but the trick is to get as much length as you need so they don't pull apart when you open the case, but not so long (or as cheap) as to deteriorate the signal.

Hey guys had a question for you all.

First the mobo in question is a Abit NF7, a bit on the older side (which explains my problems now) but has worked perfectly for me until today.

As far as I can tell, the CPU fan connector on the MB is dead, plugging the fan into another connector works fine, plugging another fan besides the cpu fan into the cpu fan connector gives me a non working fan so it simply leads me to believe the connector on the BM itself is dead.

My question is, buying a new mobo isnt an option for me right now and I can easily plug the cpu fan into another connector to get it working but is there anyway to bypass the computer checking if the cpufan is working before booting up?

As it stands right now, the computer won't boot since it detects no CPU fan even if there is one running in another connector, can I bypass this check by any chance?
 

A:Dead CPU fan connector

generally no. You might be able to get the board repaired, but you're better off replacing it.... tough break.

The cable attached to *the* moniter, its connector, is it a HD15?.

I'm talking about a standard IBM compatabile pc.
 

A:What is the connector for the end of a moniter?

I've always heard it referred to as a D sub but since it has fifteen pins, you're probably using the proper name.
