Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
My son bought a new video game (Fallout III) which required a new video card. We purchased the card, and it needed a new power supply. My son then removed the old power supply which had a 24 pin connector and installed the new power supply which has a 20-pin connector. He connected it wrong and we've ordered a new motherboard, which is a Gateway / eMachines Council Bluffs 945G Viiv Motherboard 4006160R, MBGW4006160R. When I get the new motherboard, what's the correct power supply connection - I don't want to burn up another power supply!
Most new power supplies have a twenty pin Molex connector and a 4 pin Molex connector. If you look closely at the connectors you will see that they go together a certain way. It can be very hard to tell. Take a close look at the shapes of each terminal. Match them up exactly.
