SMA Connector and Reverse SMA connector question

Q: SMA Connector and Reverse SMA connector question

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?

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

Yesterday my PC refused to start when I removed my graphics card - hitting the Power On button doesn't start the system running at all

So I did several things. I checked the 24 pin power connector from the PSU to the motherboard and tried to re-fit it again. I also removed the Power Switch connector that connects the switch on the front panel to the motherboard, and re-plugged it in. After that, I managed to boot up the system

I'm just asking out of curiosity, because I suspect that it could have been the loose power switch connector, but what will happen if the 24-pin connector is not plugged in properly? Will the system still start up?

Hi All,
Have a T30 and an older Auto adaptor from a different laptop. Volts & amps are correct for the adaptor but it has the wrong connector plug for feeding the laptop. I want to buy one and solder it in place but not sure about what part number it is (assuming they make a generic one). I tried RadioShack with no success.
Suggestions anyone?

When you say "connector" do you mean the data cable? If so, yes they will work for all standards of SATA. Some older SATA cables do not have the metal clips that hold them in, but they will still work.

I want to make a USB to USB data connector to connect two computers together to transfer data. All the one's that I saw , had a plastic bulge in the middle of the cable. Is that a splice point or does it have some electronics in it? I know that the USB has 4 contacts being that pin 1 is + batt, pin 2 & 3 are the data xmt and rcv, and pin 4 is the - batt. I would think that all that is needed to make your own transfer data cable is to reverse the xmt and rcv wires in the cable. Any thought to this?

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

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

Hello all! I don't know if I should be posting this here or in another area, but here goes:

I have a Dell Vostro 2510 Laptop with a slot DVD burner. Recently, my 3yo decided it was a great place to put coins and one got lodged in there good and tight. I finally decided to take apart the laptop to get the drive out and clear it of any coins. Now the drive seems to work.

However, I broke the little piece that holds the keyboard ribbon cable in place in it's connector. It's a little black piece that lifts up to release the cable and locks down to hold it in place. The fixed piece on the system board seem fine, but I gather I need to order a piece like this, which I gather would contain the lock down piece. Unfortunately, I do not know what it is called or where I can order it from. Can you help??

I just picked up a Neoview 17" LCD monitor. It has LOTS of connections ... but none of them are VGA.

It looks like the main video connector is a D shaped and has three rows of 8 pins in it .. PLUS it has three more rows off to the side .. the top and bottom are two pins each and the middle is a flat blade .. I've never seen one of these before and am "sorta" lost.

It came with a male/male cable to match the connector mentioned above. Also, there's a male (connector above) to VGA female adaptor....... but to use the adapter to a VGA video card, I'd need a cable. Is there such a thing as a VGA cable ? ... Any monitor I've ever seen had the cable permanently attached to it.

Anxiously awaiting your respones ..... in the meantime, I'm gonna hook the monitor up to a VCR and see how the video looks (it has RCA video and audio inputs!).

A:LCD Monitor Cable/connector question

I'm assuming it has a DVI connection. Flat panels use digital signals. A lot of cheaper/older ones converted analog to digital signals because video cards converted digital to analog. New cards don't all do that. They have a DVI out for digital displays.

Is there such a thing as a vga cable: yes. Is it what you need: i'm not sure. From the sounds of it you have a convertor like a DVI-to-VGA that I've seen before included in cards that have DVI out but reversed. If so you should be able to get a standard 15 pin VGA extension that attaches to the adaptor and to the video card.

Hi there! I've checked the forums and I'm not sure where this topic would fit so I thought this forum was most fitting? If not, please move it of course but my question is related to a broken power connector on my laptop.

I know this is the problem, as I have tried 3 different working charger/adapters and neither of them work, plus I heard a snap when I plugged it in a few days ago, prior to me noticing that a) the cord does not go into the jack as smoothly as normal and the battery is not charging when it is plugged in. Also, my laptop is fairly new.

It says 'plugged in, not charging' and is currently at 4%. I keep it very still on a table so to not let it go lower but I was wondering what would happen if the battery went to 0%. At the moment, the message I receive when I unplug the laptop while using it, is that if I do not find a power source, the laptop will go into hibernation mode. As soon as I plug it in, it returns to normal mode, only still 'not charging.' I must bring my laptop out to work on it and I am concerned if it gets down to 0% - will it still work the same at that level if plugged in, even if not charging?

I hope my question is clear. If not, please ask any questions you may have. I cannot afford to replace the connector jack at the moment and definitely cannot afford to lose use of my laptop.

Thanks so much!

I have a problem. I have two different types of moniters. GDM-20e20 and GDM-20d10 SUN 20" Moniters. They both need the 13W3F to VGAM Adapter. I have an adapter with the serial #: 530-2917-01. It works great on the GDM-20e20 Moniter, but the GDM-20d10 moniter just blinks it's light when I hook it up (VGA image never comes up). I know that it is not a broken moniter because I tried two of the GDM-20d10 moniters on the same connector and it still does the same thing. Does anyone know any good place to buy some connectors for these moniters? Some connectors that are possibly cheap and will work with the GDM-20d10 20" moniters? Thanks!

Could someone please explain why the thin flat power-connector that mates with an internal SATA HDD has about 12 contacts when it has only four wire-leads from the power source?

A:Solved: SATA connector question

Well actually the original idea was to have lots of monitoring signals, but that got changed.
Most of the contacts are for power at several voltages, and several are needed to carry the current because the design is more flimsy than the older power plugs.

Hi all,
Just a quick question.
I am using an asus P5ND2-Sli Deluxe Motherboard and I am having difficulty deciphering the system panel connector diagram in the manual relative to the cables that came with my case.

The 20-pin panel is apparently color co-ordinated and it 'should' be easy to match them up, however the cables that came with the case seem to be a different scheme. Eg, on the board the pins for the Power cable are a light green, whereas the Power connector has one green and one white cable coming out of it.

Is there a specific system to this? eg white is ground, or the labels on the connectors have to face a specific way?
Is it possible to damage the motherboard by incorrectly connecting the cables?
If anyone could provide me with any advice or perhaps a link to a diagram from somewhere that would be great

Hello,  recently I have purchased an XW9400 motherboard, a -005 AS#, and I have been reading a lot on various PC sites about issues using industry standard fan/heatsink combos with the CPUs. Can someone please give me the correct pinouts for the CPU0/CPU1 connectors, P70/P71?  At first, I thought I'd splurge and buy a couple of the fan/heatsink combos from HP, but the $330+ pricetag nearly gave me an aneurism.  I'm a disabled veteran and don't have much money to spare.  I build multi-CPU PCs as a hobby and therapy.  I have two new Dynatron fan/heatsink assemblies which are industry standard, but I neither want to burn them up nor damage the motherboard in any way. Also the power supply I am using, a Sentey 725W, does not have an 8-pin plug that will work for P3.  It does have a 6-pin PCI plug that fits electrically with what is there and the voltage requirements.  My question is whether pins 3-4 and 6-8 are in parallel for current carrying purposes and are supplying power to the exact same points on CPU1.  If this is the case, I feel the 6-pin plus will handle the demands of the board admirably. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer in this matter! RR

Hi there,

I seem to have a non-standard connector type on my SSD (THNSNC128GMLJ). I'm now concerned that I will not be able to upgrade my SSD for a larger capacity. Does anyone know anything about Toshiba using anything other than the standard SATA family of connectors on their SSD's?

This is pretty annoying as the laptop was advertised as follows - "Hard Drive - 128 GB Solid State Drive - Serial ATA-150" I'm no expert but the connector on my SSD does not look anything like the SATA connectors I've seen before.

Any help or information would be most appreciated.

A:Portege R700-155 - SSD Connector question

i believe the SSD's as standard were a different ribbon connector to the standard HDD's in the R700 series, however i also think (but don't quote me) that the actual connector for the ribbon on the motherboard is the same. so in order to fit a new SSD to the one you have you need to get hold of the HDD style ribbon from a lower spec R700

my R700-184 (european spec) was highest spec without SSD and it has normal SATA connector on the end of the ribbon. fitted an OCZ vertex 2 lovely :-)

I have a problem. I had an old PC running Win98, and the C drive went bad. I had some photos and music on another drive. I purchased a new computer, running WinXP. I also purchased one of the USB to IDE converters so I could plug the drive with the pics into my new system and recover the pics, etc. My system recognizes the drive being attached to the USB, but I can't seem to access the info on the drive.

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?

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