Are you trying to find out for your power supply cables or your data/motherboard cables? There are a lot of different kinds of connectors, so make sure you have the right one plugged in the right way. Here are pictures of both:
Your computer may use both the older and newer style plugs and cables.

IF YOU HAVE THIS KIND OF CONNECTOR(OLDER) FOR YOUR HARD DRIVE, IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT THE HARD DRIVE SHOULD BE PLUGGED IN TO YOUR PRIMARY IDE(PATA) PLUG ON THE MOTHERBOARD (IT WILL BE BLUE, RED OR A COLOR DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHERS). ALSO, SOMETIMES THEY HAVE A NOTCH, SO MAKE SURE THEY ARE IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. THE PATA (IDE)HARD DRIVE CONNECTOR IS THE GREEN ONE. HARD DRIVES AND DISK DRIVES ARE 40 PIN AND FLOPPY DRIVES ARE 34 PIN(THE BLACK ONE).

Replace power jack


Power supply failures in a HP computer can cause your computer to fail to turn on, to operate erratically or cause certain system components not function.

However, the power supply is one of the easiest parts of a computer to replace.
You don't need any special skills to do this.

If you're nervous about opening up your computer case and potentially damaging a computer component, don't be.

All you are really doing is plugging in power supply cables after securing the power supply.
The process should take 10 minutes maximum.

Shut down your HP computer.
Disconnect the power cable from the power supply on the back of your computer.

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.

Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards.


Unscrew the side panel from the back of the case and slide it off.
Newer HP computers may have a case door you can open for access or have access buttons to press.


Look at the back of your HP computer case for a set of four screws near the top of the case. Remove these screws and set them aside.
Carefully slide your power supply out of the mounting brackets and set it on a clean working surface.
Do not disconnect any of the power connectors yet.

Slide your replacement HP power supply into the case and use the mounting screws to attach it to the chassis.


Use your old HP power supply as a guide to connect your new power supply to all the computer components.

Switch the power cables from each device from the old supply to the new supply so you don't miss connecting any cables.

Check that all the components have power cables inserted and the old HP power supply is completely disconnected from the system.

Close the HP computer case and plug the power cable into the new HP power supply.

I sent you problem about '91 olds without ignition or pwr windows,locks or trunk. You suggested i try checking fusable links on starter but they're all ok except for one purple wire coming from starter...


You should have recieved a reply from me on your other post. If not,

The purple wire is the power supply to engage the starter solenoid when you turn the key to the crank position. It should only have power when you are trying to start so thats nothing to worry about right now. Follow the positive battery cable from the battery. There is another fusible link that supplies power to the ignition switch. For the life of me I can't remember specifically where is it but I do know it is under the hood somewhere along one of the positive cables.

Install hard drive in hp a1310n


You need to do a number of things:

1) You need to carefully remove the door and the whole front face of the desktop (the front face opens like a door it swings open from left to right)

2) Once you have the front pannel open take a philips screwdriver and unscrew the memory card readers that is show in front of the deskop (there is one screw holding this card reader in place probably on the upper right hand corner.

3) Carefully remove the card reader by jiggiling it lightly till the unit comes off.

4) After you remove the card reader, you will immediatly see the hard drive directly behind the reader that you just removed.

5) Now look inside the desktop (because you removed the right hand side door: the big one that alows you to see inside the pc) and remove all cables from this hard drive before you read #6 below

6) Inside the desktop, Locate the hard drive, put your hand on the back of it and lift on the green plastic part along side the hard drive where you can see the harddrive screw which is on a metal track stopped by a green plastic stopper.

7) Lift the green plastic stopper and push the back of the hard drive to the front of the desktop.

8) Unscrew all screws from old hard drive and rescrew them on the new one in the exact same spots at the old hard drive.

9)Once you finish screwing on the screws, slide the new hard drive back from where the old one was

10) reconnect all data cables and power supply cable.

11) follow steps 7 thru 1 to put unit back together again. Go thru steps 7 thru one backwards

I hope this helps
