I recently purchased a new Radeon 7970 graphics card and installed in into my computer which currently is... --AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black -BIOSTAR TA790XE -600 Watt OCZ mod x stream-pro power supply...


Hi David,

Try removing and resetting the CMOS battery on your motherboard. Also, make sure that all connectors from power supply are plugged into the motherboard. There should be power for sys fan, CPU fan, etc.

Thanks,
E.

Power supply for a gateway GT5634H


Hi Debbie ,

Yes that power connector should be just fine the extra 4pins are an addition 12v rail to reduce the amperage on one line , you can just connect it offset to one side, not centred.
allthough there will be more current than the newer 24pin PSU, id reccomend buying an additional 20 to 24pin adaptor from

Power Supply Types

There are two basic types of power supplies. There are AT power supplies, which are older and in older computers, and ATX power supplies, which you will find in virtually every new computer you can buy.

There are two fundamental differences between AT and ATX power supplies. First, the switch mechanism is different. AT power supplies use a normal on-off switch, which directly turns the power supply on or off.

ATX power supplies use a momentary switch which does not directly control the power. Instead, the switch signals the motherboard, which performs one of three actions:

  • If the computer is off, the power supply is turned on (which turns the computer on)
  • If the computer is on, the computer goes into power-saving mode (standby)
  • If the switch is held for more than 4 seconds, the power is cut and the computer turns off.
Because of this difference, ATX power supplies are better for projects that require the second power supply to turn on automatically when the computer is turned on.

The second difference is in the motherboard connector: AT power supplies provide two 6-pin connectors (figure 1), which are easy to insert backwards. The ATX connector is a single 20-pin connector that only plugs in one way (figure 2).

Figures 1 and 2: The difference between AT (left) and ATX (right) motherboard connectors.
Both power supplies provide two types connectors for plugging devices into. These connectors are called Molex connectors, and they come in two sizes (see figure 3 and 4). A power supply will generally have a few of each size.
2psfig3small.jpg 2psfig4small.jpg
Figures 3 and 4: Large (left) and small (right) Molex connectors.
There is no difference between the two sizes other than the size itself. Both sizes provide the same amount of power to whatever device is plugged into it (12V and 5V). The small Molex connectors are generally used only for floppy drives. Large Molex connectors power hard drives, CD/DVD drives, and many fans and lights as well.

Note: You can purchase large and small Y-adapters if you run out of Molex connectors. Be careful when using the Y-adapters however, because if your power supply does not have enough power for all the devices attached (especially true for older, lower-wattage supplies), you can damage it.

Computer switched itself on and has not worked since.


It's either a dead power supply or a fried motherboard. Emachines are cheap junk, their power supplies and motherboards die all the time, just look around here on Fixya for proof. Instead of saving a buck, consider buying a better brand.

T2893 e machines wont turn on


Since you are looking inside, try this. Trace the wires that come from the power switch back to the Motherboard. The wires from the switch will connect to two pins on the motherboard. Carefully jump those two pins with a screwdriver and the machine should turn on. I would suggest doing this with all drives and cards unplugged first.

Need wiring diagram for emachines t2200 motherboard


If you are replacing the power supply and it has 4 pin 12v conector and your motherboard doesn't, just disregard the 4 pin plug. The 20 pin conector will supply sufficient power for the processor. Many of the older motherboards did not have a separate 12v supply for the processor.

H2862 Will not power up


This is a common e-machines problem. You were right to change the power supply. Most e-machines come with dangerously (fire balls shooting out the back) low powered power supplies that can even catch on fire. Most people install their power supplies for e-machines backwards meaning they put the 20+4 pin connector in the 4 pin connector next to the processor and it fries. Others don't do anything and the computer is just fried. It's one of the reasons no one should buy an e-machine. If you want someone to fix it for you or you want a new machine and your files transferred go to www.mindblowingidea.com/ComputerRescue and you can get PCs with XP Pro or Linux.
