P1, P2, P3.... are just spare power connections from the power supply. Some units are not even labeled, because it does not matter which one you use as long as they fit. If this is what you are referring to.

SOURCE: i put my 3 0 ghz cpu in my Gateway Intel 850

verify your manufacturer if the board is capable for CPU upgrade for the CPU you install.

chipset and CPU must be compatible in order to work..

even it power up..but still there is a conflict in BIOS (basic input/output system)

SOURCE: pc won't power ( turn on)

The green light is most likely your lan card/port. If the cord/outlet are sparking when you plug it in, I would say try plugging something else into that socket, if you get the same spark, I'd call an electrician. Also try plugging the pc into a different outlet. As far as the computer, if its not the outlet then it is the power supply, your motherboard may be fried in the process but if this isn't an issue with that outlet, then you should take it in to a shop.

SOURCE: needing to plug new power source to motherboard, need the diagram format

There are only 1 or 2 power supply connections to motherboards. On single (older) connection motherboards, it is a 10 pair Connector.On doule connection MB there is the 10 pair and a 2 pair connector.You really can't miss where they go. A 2 connector power supply will work on a 1connector MB. The rest of the power supply connectors are for disk drives. The big flat 4 connectors are for hard drives and CD/DVD drives. The small flat 4 connectors are for floppy drives.If you take the old PS out, you will see where to put the new PS in. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: replace atx 250 12e power supply with 350watt power supply per

Sounds like there maybe some kind of problem with *********** board connector. Double check that it is the right size, and be sure there are no places that still need power. When you get the chance I'd check the following:
Disc Drives
Hard Drives
That all cards are secure, if there are any loose connectors your comp will declare "short circuit". At that point, unplug the cord from the mother board (the power cable) and try again.
Any USB Cables
Anything that looks loose, and finally, recheck the compatibility with your system.

Good Luck!!!

SOURCE: Hi, my HP Pavillion a1240n

There are only certain items that will not power up a machine. 1. The power supply itself could be gone. 2. Check your ram. 3. Your hard drive. In most cases it is the power supply. Take out the power supply from the machine and plug it in to a wall socket. If it starts that it is not the power supply. If it doesn't start replace the power supply.

When do you insert the diagnostic post card test in the BIOSTAR motherboard computer and start the POST the post card test showed P9; what thats mean ?

Post card testers usually go into the PCI slot. You will need to read the post card tester manual to determine what F9 means.

Wen i turn it on the scren will not come on

It could be one of three things. The monitor itself, the cable (not very common), or the video card. Now if the video is onboard ( part of the motherboard), just getting a graphics card will get it back up and running. Now depending on the slots in your computer it will need an AGP, PCI, or PCIe video card.
