Question about HP Bestec ATX-1956D 200w HP Part No 0950-4106 (ATX1956D) Power Supply

HP Pavilion 774y power supply replacement

The power went out on my pavilion desktop. It's been doing it sporadically before but now bought the big one. I purchased a new power supply (Bestec ATX-1956D) it was supposed to be a replacement for HP 0950-4106.

It does match almost exactly except the new one has three wires connected to a 3 pin head that are two black and one green that weren't on the original unit. I guess this might be some kind of ground but I can't see anywhere to plug it in.

Also, I got the power going to everything but now it doesn't seem to want to recognize the monitor... and there are no lights showing on my keyboard. Any idea of what that might be? Did I fry my motherboard or something?

I doubt you fried the motherboard
I would be taking my old power supply to the store where you purchased it to make sure they gave you the proper one.
Some power supplys do have that extra plug you may not need to plug it in at all
I can't see your motherboard to show you where to plug it in wish i could help more

SOURCE: Upgrade for Bestec ATX-1956D (HP p/n: 0950-4106)

How about the LC Power LC350M Micro ATX - 380 Watt

or the 

Logisys 350W Micro ATX

They should fit your form factor and output as much as 350W being relatively cheap, but neither gets 18 amps on 12V rail...
I think no power supply of that size has an output like that...think about a cheap but substancial chassis upgrade if you need that power...Have a look at directron for the PSUs.

is there a problem you are encountering? does your pc shutting down? what is your present power supply wattage? if that is 300watts then you can change even 450watts.
