Question about HP Computers & Internet
I recieved a new power supply for my hp 700 .i remove all the cable wire but don't remember were they go looking for a digram to see were they go.i know were the 20 pin connector went.
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).
HERE'S WHAT THE CABLE LOOKS LIKE:
HERE'S A PICTURE OF HOW TO PLUG TWO PATA DEVICES IN AT ONCE. IF YOU HAVE ONLY ONE DEVICE LIKE THIS, JUST PLUG THE ONE END INTO THE MOTHERBOARD AND THE OTHER END INTO THE DRIVE, LEAVING THE MIDDLE ONE UNPLUGGED.putting the cable in the right spot - idecab.gif
A PATA DEVICE (AND SOME SATA DEVICES) USE A POWER CABLE WITH FOUR PINS Aputting the cable in the right spot - 800px-molex_female_connector.jpgimg src="http://i.fixya.net/uploads/images/800px-molex_female_connector.jpg" alt="800px-molex_female_connector.jpg" class="h_mi" />
HERE'S WHAT THE NEWER SATA PLUGS AND CABLES LOOK LIKE. THE CABLE ON THE RIGHT IS FOR POWER AND THE ONE ON Tputting the cable in the right spot - 06-sata_drive_conns.jpgIS CAN APPLY TO HARD DRIVES OR DISK DRIVES)
