Mobo power connector

Q: Mobo power connector

Hi, I am tying to sort a PC for a friend. The PSU appears to be fried, so swapped that for a spare one. The spare provides power to the mobo in that the on board LED lights up, AGP powered fan spins up, as does the CPU fan and the case fan. However this is as far as I get, the is no video output. I am wondering if the mobo is fried too. One other thought is that the 20 pin connector on the original PSU contains 20 cables, whereas on newer PSUs there are only 19. Could it be that as the PC was built with a PSU which provided 20 cables into the 20 pin connector that a 20 pin connector fron a newer PSU which only contains 19 cables might not work? Sorry if this is a bit garbled.

what mobo is it? does it have an additional 4 pin power connector? or an additional 8 pin power connector?

The more specs you can provide the better.

I've got a Premio mobo. a 212J, that has an unusual board socket for the power supply.
It's a white plastic socket with the internal pins.(2 banks)

A:Solved: Mobo Power connector

1.2. Key Changes for ATX12V Version 2.0 and later as Compared with ATX and Pervious Versions of ATX12V Power Supply

This section briefly summarizes the major changes made to this document that now defines ATX12V power supply. With the move to 12V voltage regulators for the processor, ATX guidelines for 5V as main power are no longer provided.

1.2.1. Increased +12 VDC output capability
System components that use 12V are continuing to increase in power. In cases where expected current requirements is greater than 18A a second 12 V rail should be made available. ATX12V power supplies should be designed to accommodate these increased +12 VDC currents.

1.2.2. Minimum Efficiency
Minimum measured efficiency is required to be 70% at full and typical (~50%) load and 60% at light (~20%) load. New recommended guidance has been added to provide direction for future requirements.

2.03 is the current version of the ATX Specification as of this writing. Future references to the ATX Specification in this document imply version 2.03 or later, as applicable. ATX12V Power Supply Design Guide 8

1.2.3. Main Power Connector:
The 2 x 10 main power connector has been replaced by a 2 x 12 connector. This was made to support 75 watt PCI Express*requirements. Pinout assignments are based on the SSI recommendation.

With the added 12V, 5V, and 3.3V pins the need for an Aux Power connector is no longer needed and the guidance for this connector has been removed.

Hello everyone! Happy New Year!!

I am trying to replace the standard 300 watt power supply in my HP m7350n computer. It looks like I can handle it, except I am worried about the 24 pin connector that attaches to the motherboard (P5LP-LE). I don't want to break anything, and it doesn't want to release when I press on it and try pulling. I am tempted to use a tiny screwdriver, but that feels like a bad move.

Any hints?

The new 430 watt supply has a 20 plus 4 connector. This just attaches like the 24 pin connector but in two parts (right?)

Thanks, Gordon

Well let me start from the beginning. A few weeks ago my computer started to shut off while I was playing counterstrike 1.6. I checked my temps and they were well below the threshhold. Maybe about 65 C. So I figured it might have something to do with the graphics card being that i wasnt getting any problems outside of the game. I uninstalled the driver software and it gave me a couple errors. "Zero Display Service" error. I spoke with a friend and they told me to use nasty file remover, while booted in safe mode, to remove all the files. By this time I had cancelled windows "adding new hardware" thing, and clicked on the updated drivers I had downloaded from ATI. During setup i recieved two errors. One was an "INF Error : display driver not found" then "Setup could not complete, try installing thye standard VGA driver before beginning setup." Well the only other thing I could do was install using the disc that came with my card. This too gave me an the "Zero display Error" but it still completed the installation. This did not fix my computer shutting off problem. After cleaning out my computer and checking all the connections, and disconnecting and reconnecting I finally got the driver installation to not give me an error.

Hi guys. I just received a PC a bought online. The motherboard is a "ASUS 1155 P8H61-M". The thing is that I ordered an extra fan apart with the one that comes with the case, and the thing is that this extra fan they gave me has a 3-pin female connector (see first image).
My motherboard only has 1 male 3-pin connector, and its reserved for the cpu fan. It also
has 1 male 4-pin connector but its occupied but the fan that comes with the case...
There is a weird series of 7 pin connectors in which my fan connector would fit, but I'm not sure if those are meant for fans 'cause to those 7-pin connectors my HDMI audio and USB connectors are connected....

Im working wth a computer that lost its power supply. Specs are not needed, my question is very general. Helping troubleshoot via telephone.

Bestbuy brand power supply died. Owner replaced it with a Thermaltake PSU. The system shuts off after heavy usage like gaming and stuff.
Visual inspection shows that the 4 pin ATX connector socket on the mobo next to the CPU has some melted plastic inside it, so the new PSU connector doesnt fit snug.
If the connector is held down with tape, it will stay on longer, but eventually shuts off again.

I was wondering if I could clean the plastic off, or just get a 8" 4 pin extension cable, plug the female end into the new PSU, cut off the male end and solder it to the mobo.
I know that I will have to be careful and make sure nothing will short out. Just wondering if that would be a solid fix or not? Thats the only visible damage. Thanks in advance!
 

A:Burnt 4 pin 12v ATX connector on mobo

Only if you are experienced, and very good at soldering.
There should be a way of using that extension cable by slightly compressing the socket... and I do mean slightly, just to make the fit more firm.
If you have access to a womans power sander or file that many women use to repair and polish their nails, you might be able to clean up the posts in a way that would be helpful.
As you are aware, be very careful to avoid putting pressure on those posts because the motherboard is very fragile and any pressure offers the risk of damaging the contact between those posts and the board, and that will be extremely difficult to fix...

Be sure to use very good lighting and perhaps a magnifying glass to be sure it is not already damaged.

Okay I've searched up and down the web and can't find anything about this connector.

First off this is a 300-watt Compaq PSU from a Presario 7000 Desktop.

This Compaq computer won't power up. When I installed a standard ATX-12 PSU, the green light on the mobo came on but because most ATX-12 PSU's don't come with this very proprietary connector the computer failed to boot up. The CPU fan didn't even twitch. But the mobo green light AND the PWR LED on the front of the case lit up. Neither lights came on with the original Compaq PSU.

This connector is white and labeled "P8" and is a 6-conductor white plug. The overall size is similar to the power connectors you plug into your hard drive and other IDE devices. It looks like an oversized floppy drive connector. The wiring colors are: Red, Orange, Orange, Black, Black, Black.

I've traced the wires and here's where they go to the PSU's circuit board:

Red - connects to the same red lead on the IDE power connectors
Orange - connects to the same orange leads on the main power (mobo) connector
Black - connects to what looks like the PSU's chassis ground.

It looks pretty straight forward and I could probably modify a standard ATX-12 PSU to a Compaq PSU by snipping off this 6-conductor plug and splicing into a generic PSU's standard wiring.

But before I attempt this, is there anyone out there that knows the pin configuration on a standard/g... Read more

I have a hiper modular psu, and the asus A8N-Sli premium mobo, in the antec p180 case, for anyone who has a similar set up (or has just used that case in fact) has probably noticed getting the 12v 4 pin atx connector from the psu (in bottom left hand corner) to the ATX slot (in my case the top left hand corner), is kindof hard unless you have a rather long cable (espesically as with the case layout you have to slide it through pretty much the middle of the case). Anyway this wasnt really a problem for me until I bought a new sound card and the fact that the cable is tought across all my spare pci slots is suddenly rather annoying, basically I either need to extend the original cable, convert a molex into the 4pin 12v ATx cable, or buy a whole new cable thats a bit longer (as the PSU's modular). Feedback on how to do either of these (or which is best) would be greatly appreciated (even just a website to buy the parts from would be great as I can't find one anywere) as having a soundcard sitting on my desk is rather annoying, to think i could be fragging in surround sound

I have just bought a Dell 19.5 V 90 W power supply adapter for a Dell from ebay. The PSU turned up this morning without a power cord. That's annoying enough but when I looked the connector needed is a type I have never seen before. The centre pin is slightly longer and wider than the other two so I assume that is the Earth pin. The centre pin is also offset between the other two. Again I suppose for connecting only 1 way. The two outer pins have a distance of just under 2 cms between them. Please can anyone tell me what type of connector this is. If I can get some info on it then I may be able to get one.

However, I ordered the board from Mwave.com and it only has a 20 pin power connector. The manual shows a 20 pin connector also so why do they show 24 pin on the asus site? Did I get an older board or something? The specs on thier site also show a 24 pin connector http://www.mwave.com/mwave/SpecB/BA19507.html

Doing a little upgrade to the PC I built almost a year ago. I wanted to try the new Sandy Bridge CPU, so I had to buy a new MOBO. I bought the Intel DP67BGB, it arrived today and I see it has an 8 pin power connector for the CPU. No adapters around town so I ordered one on the net. Anyway, I was told in a computer store today that as long as I wasn't overclocking I could run it with just one 4 pin . Want to make sure that's correct before I start rebuilding. Don't feel like waiting until next week for the adapter., but don't want to damage the CPU either.

BTW, the new CPU is Intel i5 2500, 3.3G.

If too much power is drawn there is a chance that either the PSU, Motherboard, or CPU could be damaged and when you have spent that much on new parts it is worth waiting the extra week to make sure that you don't mess anything up. It may work for a while but in the long term it can't be good for the board/cpu/psu.

The title pretty much sums it up.....

My 500w psu only has one 6 pin power connector so im looking for the best graphics card that isnt over 9.6 inches long and only requires one 6 pin.

I would be willing to spend 150 if it got me a beast but as far as i can see anything more advanced than a GTS 250 seems to require 2 6pins.

Im looking at nvidia cards as the last Ati didnt work in my system and its irrationally put me off!

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Are all power led connectors 3 pin connectors or are some of them two pin? I'm getting a new PC case and my current motherboard only supports 2 pin power led connectors. Oh well, you don't need the power led do you? Like it won't stop the PC from working?

Hello,
 
I have a HP xw6600 workstation.
The 24 pin power connector which connects to the motherboard was burnt.
I am thankful if you tell me how to provide this connector or what to do.
 
Thank you very much

My T3600 has 3 power connectors for HDD's and 1 for the ODD but it is a different style plug (it branches off of another, regular HDD power plug in the ODD bay).  How can I get power to a 4th HDD?  Is there a way to run a splitter cable from an existing end or will this be to much of a drain on it?  Any way to convert or step down the unused 6-pin video card cables?
BTW, one of the 4 drives is a SSD and I have the 635W P/S.

Gosh darn could somebody please tell me. I keep trying to look it up online but get everything but.. did find a great site on how hard drives work though LOL .. so shall keep that..

Can anyone tell me the correct 'technical specification' for the plug that connects the PSU to the back of the Inspiron (and several other models)?      I have now trashed the second PSU - the wire breaks close to where it connects to the laptop - with the result that one of the leads will not connect so although the laptop runs on mains it will not charge.
I am looking to see if I can buy a new solder on connector from Maplins / RS Components etc so that I can fix the lead as the PSU itself is fine and it is clearly a quality issue on the supplied leads.

Thanks.

Hi, I have a motherboard which needs an 8 pin pwer connector to supply the cpu properly, my question is: can I plug in my 6 and 2 pin power connector into it? will it work?
Currently I'm running only on 2 cores with my 4 pin power connnector
some say it works: 6 Pin to 8 Pin - Graphics-Cards - Graphic-Displays
If this is not a good idea, I will get a molex>8pin converter in the future, thanks.
edit: I have a Coolink 500W

A:6+2 pin power connector into 8 pin socket?

Realistically you can use any 12v connections as long as they will fit in the socket, which is where you would find the problem.

The CPU connector is very simple:
12v 12v
GND GND
for the 4-pin
and
12v 12v 12v 12v
GND GND GND GND
for the 8-pin

By convention 12v wires are yellow.

Acceptable: get any four 12v connections to fit in the socket.
Better: Buy an 4-pin to 8-pin adapter (just a splitter, really)
Best: Buy a modern power supply. Your puter will love you for it!

I know of at least three types of power supplies which have different connectors. The square one is for the new high Pentium mother boards. One has a connector with 20 pin (two rows of 10 each). The other has two connectors with a total of 12 pins (6 on each connector. Is the latter for an AT board? If not what power supply would I get which has the latter connectors.
Thanks.

Hi bigsooner,

Just setting up a System with the Gigabyte 965p-s3 in a Thermaltake Soprano and have come across a little speed hump, the Motherboard has a 24 pin Atx Power connector where the PSU (stock) has a 20 pin connector im assuming I need to purchase an adaptor to convert to 24 pin is this correct or would it be better to get a new PSU altogether??

If the power connecotor is dislodged by a milimetre or two the computer stops charging, and it's very easily dislodged. Is this normal?
