Question about ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard
I was performing some troubleshooting and found that my power supply has a 20 pin motherboard power connector and the motherboard has a 24 pin power connector. I guessing that this is probably the reason for the motherboard instability and my inability to load windows. I know it's probably a stupid question but I figure it's worth asking before I put the $ out for a new power supply. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
Buy a new power supply....lol

Some power supply comes with the extra 4 pins separate since not all motherboards use the 24 of them. Be careful, though, because an extra 4 pin also comes on it for processor power and cannot be used for the extension part of the motherboard power. They are usually made up of red, black, orange and yellow single wires. If not, then you have to purchase a new 24 pin psupply.

You should find that there is a separate 4 pin plug attached to your power supply which can be pluged in the 4 holes left next to your 20 pin mobo socket, this is usualy used as the processor powering connector. It's easy to recognise as it looks like its been cut off the end of the 20 pin plug.
