SMPS pins are different for a new motherboard.

Q: SMPS pins are different for a new motherboard.

I was using a DG41Wv Motherboard and recently upgraded to B250g. I was not able to use the SMPS from the old one. What can I do to use my motherboard?

Pictures attached.
The first image shows the connector with 4 pins from my SMPS.
The second image shows the connector on my motherboard with 8 pins. What can I do to solve this?

Please help.

Preferred Solution: SMPS pins are different for a new motherboard.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Did u try contracting the local hardware vendor before u post ?
Because I believed they can offer more logical advises than any of the users here, don't u agree ?

If the CPU is overheating (or failed), the system may be shutting down in self-protection. Have you been overclocking? Have you reset the motherboard settings to default?

I bought a new case about a week ago and tried it's USB ports..
All worked but one of the USB3 headers didn't..
So I checked the cables, checked everything.. Decided to remove the USB3 plug from the MOBO and what do I see?
2 Pins are missing!

I have no idea how or when.. I tried to search for them, maybe they snaped when I unpluged the cable, but I didn't find anything..
The missing are pins 1 and 2 in the picture..
I think that pin 19 is missing too.. The image kind of faded off my mind right now..

Are those pins the reason why one of the USB3 ports won't work?
What do they mean? What do they do?
Is it safe to even keep the cable connected to the MOBO without those pins?


A:Broken USB Motherboard pins

Pin 1 is power, pin 19 is power and pin 2 is the USB 3 RX- signal, so yeah that's the reason the ports won't work. I can't see any harm in leaving it plugged in.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1100 which at this point can only be described as an old war horse. Bought in 2002 It got my wife through law school, and is now still holding up in our second year living in the developing world. Understandably, it's starting to have some issues, but I'm hoping with a litte help it can get us through the end of our time overseas in May. I think these issues are related to loose pins/connections on the motherboard, but I don't know exactly where and my internet access is spotty at best so I could really use some guidance about where to check. Ok, to the symptoms:
Recently, the machine would not boot up. It seemed to start, but then shut itself down almost immediately. When I took it apart and put it back together, it gave me a message that it had shut down to avoid overheating. But this couldn't be right since it had been off all night and was not hot at all. The fan is working fine so I think the problem may be related to the sensor or auto-shutoff mechanism.
Once I had the machine back together, a diagonal row of keys stopped working. The '8', 'i', 'k', qnd ',' key would not respond.

Can anyone point me towards what could be causing these issues? Thanks in advance.

A:Loose Pins on Motherboard?

Really would appreciate any guidance anyone can give on this. The machine continues to auto-shut down even when started for the first time in days, and sometimes will boot up but with the fan running full speed and constantly, so I think a temperature sensor is a likely culprit, but I don't know where it is located or if it is possible to repair easily.

Just put an older and somewhat obscure motherboard in a new case I bought from In-Win.

The Mobo in question came with a "Beon Li-800" that CompUsa sold to my mother in law in 2000.

Its an ECS motherboard and the documentation that accompanied the PC upon purchase is for a "6IWP-Fe" (Intel 810 Chip set) but that motherboard is not listed on their support pages and I'm not even sure that this is the precise name of the board I have.

So anyway, now I'm trying to figure out how to identify the various pins on the internal USB header so I don't fry something.

The markings on the board itself don't seem to be of much help.

I imagine, though I'm not certain, that if I can just determine which pins provide power, the rest should fall into place.

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions as to how I can work through this bit of confusion and get those pins identified.

i just received my new motherboard, asus a8n, and i;m trying to connect my case's front usb panel with the motherboard.
The motherboard's pins are labelled:
- - - - - - - - - - - - -
| +5v P6- P6+ GND NC |
| +5v P5- P5+ GND |
- - - - - - - - - - - - -

As you can see, the first row has 5 pins, while the bottom one only 4.

My case's front panel has 8 pins, labelled

As you can understand, the pins of the panel are not grouped together.
Where must each usb panel pin go on the motherboard?

A:motherboard to usb front panel pins

My guess is that the matches are:

+5v ----> power
+5v ----> power
p5- ----> d2-
p5+ ----> d2+
p6- ----> d3-
p6+ ----> d3+
gnd ----> ground
gnd ----> ground
NC ----> unmatched

note that the p5+-,p6+- pins on the two other usb ports on the motherboard, have other names.ie one has p7-,p7+,p8-,p8+ and the other has p9-,p9+,p10-,p10+

Is my assumption correct? if yes, why is NC alone?

Hi, I just got my new parts for my build yesterday and today while putting everything together I couldn't get the heatsink on the CPU properly so I took it off to reseat it only to find that there was some thermal paste on the motherboard socket.
So I was trying to clean it and in the process it got smudged on some of the motherboard pins where the CPU is placed.

I don't know if I am lucky or not but the thermal paste is non conductive so i left it as it is in case I bent any pins making it even worse. So right now I have been using the system for over 2 hours without any problems and its is working flawlessly. However I am worried if there may be future problems but the reason i bought non conductive thermal paste was for incidents such as this. So if any you guys can give your opinion on this matter I would really appreciate it.

Get some alcohol and an old tooth brush, wet the brush and start brushing softly till the paste is gone.

I recently removed an Intel Q6600 quad core processor from a Socket 775 Gigabyte motherboard and found all kinds of bent pins on the motherboard after removal. Don't understand how they got bent. The computer has worked OK with that processor in that motherboard until my CPU fan died and killed my CPU. I removed the CPU to replace it and found a mass of bent pins on the motherboard. Don't understand how this happened. It could not have been this way before the Processor fried so I must have did it while removing the CPU. It has the two tabs there, so have a difficult time understanding how you bend pins pulling that processor out of the socket. Just a matter of releasing the latch and pulling the processor out. Would appreciate any advice on what I did wrong, because the mistake cost me $120 for another motherboard. The pins are mangled and cannot be straightened. Thanks for your advice.

Hi everyone, I have a problem.
I pinmodded an LGA771 Xeon to work with my LGA775 motherboard. I decided to do it the hard way and use aluminum foil and tape to pin mod it. I think it worked out fine but anyway, on to the problem.

When I cut off the LGA775 alignment pieces, I accidentally bent 2 pins out of shape a little. Initially, I didn't notice, so I put in the Xeon to try it out, didn't work.
Then I tried my old processor, also didn't work (worked fine previously).

So then I noticed the pins and bent them back into shape, AFAIK it is perfect and you can't even tell that anything happened.
Tried both CPUs, nothing, no beeps, no signal to the monitor.

Is it possible to damage my motherboard if I didn't do the pinmod correctly?
Is it possible that I damaged my processor or motherboard by trying to run it with those 2 pins out of place?

Help please

A:Bent motherboard pins, fixed but now will not boot

I am not really sure, but my guess is you did not do the pinmod correctly since both CPUs do not work. I hope someone else can provide some insight on this issue. Good luck!

Just to clarify that I'm not being silly. Bought a brand new Gigabyte SKT-1155 Z77X-UD5H Motherboard off of amazon. Was from a company selling through amazon. Product arrived with antistatic bag open which confused me a little. Contacted seller and was told its because the I/O shield is missing which is why it was cheaper than the others sold there.

Come to put a CPU in it and after removing protective cover some pins seem to be bent. Its an lga1155 socket and from images on google (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f5/Intel_Socket_1155.jpeg) the pins look like that however a few look bent straight upwards. Is it suppose to be like this or is it broken?

A:bent pins brand new motherboard socket?

None of the pins should be bent upwards. An I/O shield is one thing (presuming that it was advertised, or you knew it was missing when it was purchased), but I would return it if it has bent pins.

hi evryone,
i have an out of date hp pavilion t3540.be here that i'm trying to get back up.
i'm busy changing the ram, cpu and motherboard.
(4gb ddr3, amd phenom II x4, Asus M4A88T-M/USB3)
I'm almost done but there are a few problems that i've run into.
the pront panel pins are combined in one big plugin for the ac410-m motherboard. so i need to get them out of there and plug them in into smaller pins. but i can't find a pinout diagram for the old ac410-m motherboard so the wires are unknown to me.
another problem is that i can't find a aux_in plugin on th motherboard so i guess it's if i just leave it as it is in the case.
last but not least. the motherboard says it has integrated video and audio. So do i still have to put in my graphics card or can i just leave it out of there?

I recently bought a used Lenovo IS6XM motherboard.  I think it was from a M81 system.  But I don't know which of the contacts I need to join to power this on.  I have the manual and know where the front panel connector would go on the board but don't have it.  They are numbered from 1 to 14 but 13 is empty.  Pins 1 and 3 seem to be for a Power LED.  Pins 11 and 12 and 12 and 13 seem to power it on momentarily, then it shuts down.  The CPU fan doesn't start, just the power supply fan.  There is no warmth from anything on the board (cpu or chipset).  The board worked fine in the sellers house.  Ain't that always the way...

A:Motherboard Dell Inc. Model 0Y5CWX (XPS 12 9250) Need manual or help locating CMOS pins

There are no "CMOS pins".  If what you're trying to do is reset to defaults, simply disconnect the battery and hold the power button for 30 sec.
If you're trying to reset a password, note that it's not stored in CMOS - it's stored in EEPROM.  The only way to do that is obtain an unlock code by calling Dell, verifying your ownership of the system, and entering the password they generate for you.

I just want to know, if my server has two SMPS for redundancy, for what exact purpose the redundancy work. i.e. if one SMPS fails, it works on another SMPS or I can connect both SMPSes to different power source (different UPS) so that even one power source fails it can work on another source?

Yes, that's the main purpose.

dipz said:

Click to expand...

And that's another purpose, or it can be connected to a completely different source of power.

Also some servers use multiple power supplies in conjunction to supply the system with enough power, then fall over for redundancy if one fails.

A:SMPS for Athlon 64 X2 3800+


The PSU not only drives the CPU, it drives everything. If we knew the rest of your hardware it would help.
The AMD is a low power device so a 350 will probably be suffice but to be on the safe side I would up that to at least a 400 (graphics cards seem to be getting more and more power hungry these days).

Been a long loooong time since i posted somethin here i've got more obsessed with mobile fones lately
Anyways , my prob is... today my computer just wont power on. I checked if the power cable was plugged in properly.... It was! I opened the cabinet, the fan wasnt spinning.... neither was the processor's heat sink fan spinning..... in simple terms.... the cpu wasnt powering on.
Fearing the worst ( mobo dead) i panicked n called up a friend who seemed to think that my SMPS is dead. After some tense conversations with other friends.... i took out the CMOS battery n put it back in.... the computer still wouldnt power on. I randomly checked if all the wires r plugged in properly inside the cabinet.. but it just wouldnt power on !!!
Frustated.. i just left it like that.. n after an hour when i returned to my room..... it seemed to have started automatically ( i must have left the power button on) and there was this error on the first screen that comes up when u power on ur computer
" Warning! CPU has changed! Check CPU speed settings in setup"
I dont remember the other error but it said something like " CAS latency 3 "
I pressed F1 and the pc booted fine. Then i shut it down... restarted it.... hit DEL and in the BIOS i did " LOAD OPTIMIZED DEFAULTS" as told by my friend.

Hi! I just bought a CD burner. The firewire that came with it has 6 pins. It doesn't fit in any of my USB ports on my Dell Dimension 4500S computer. When I looked at 4 to 6 pin converters, the 4 part looks too small! How do I know how many pins my computer USB port has? The booklet that came with it doesn't say.

I appreciate ANY help! New CD burner, but no fun.

A:Firewire pins

Well, USB and Firewire are two completely different things, well, sort of. The plugs are totally different, and the speeds are different. Most computers have standard USB ports built in. Not so much for firewire. What you need is a $30 firewire card, or a burner that is USB compatible. Another option would be to install the drive on the internal IDE.

Also, it is my understanding that some computer parts also have platinum in them or on them. Does anyone know which parts and which years or which makes and models?
