How to use a P3 power supply with a P4 or newer motherboard.

Well its fairly simple, You need the following cable to convert your P3 power supply into P4 power supply.



The pictures pretty much explain every thing, this is the only plug that is not present on a P3 power supply. You can make this cable your self by salvaging connectors from non-working power supplies and other computer peripherals. The connections are straight forward just connect both the yellow wires to the single yellow wire and the black wires to the black wires and your done.

Dell dimension e510 flashing amber light USB front panel

If you are comfortable around computers, you could try the following to test the power supply. Unplug the cord from the power supply, hold the power button in for about 15/20 seconds, open the case, unplug the 24-pin power connector from the motherboard and jump the Green wire to one of the Black wires, reconnect the power cord and power the system on and if power supply fan and hard drive run, then the PSU should be good. Note: Do not remove any wires from the plug, use a small piece of wire or a paper clip as a jumper. Power supply checks out and the system still does not work, again remove the power cord, hold power button in for several seconds to discharge the residue power, reconnect the 24-pin connector to the motherboard. Remove all the PCI cards, the video card [if applicable], memory, all peripherals, disconnect the data and power cables to all the drives, check that the front panel cable is connected to motherboard, with nothing else connected to the system, reconnect the power cable and power the system on. If you do not get any beep codes or diagnostic lights on the front panel, then it would appear that motherboard has died.

  1. Verify startup process passes initial memory checks and POST (Power On Self-Test) with no beeping sounds or flashing sleep LED. Check video activity.
  2. Disconnect any peripherals and Ethernet cable.
  3. Reset SMC using the procedure for your computer.
  4. Reset PRAM by holding down Command-Option-P-R keys while restarting, until you hear the startup sound for the second time.

  6. Run Disk Utility or check Mac Resource Inspector (MRI) results to verify SMART status of the your hard drive.

My power supply died (popped), so I replaced it (Antec SL350 with an Antec SL350S). However, when I turned on the switch on the back of the power supply, the motherboard powered up immediately (tower...

If you "popped" the power supply, I would check to see if the RAM might have taken a hit as well. Ram chips and CPU are sensitive when it comes to power surges. I would troubleshoot the system, unplug everything. you need monitor, power, cpu, and ram (1 at a time). Check to see if the system will POST. if you do get it to POST, start with 1 item at a time and see if the system will POST every time. If nothing happens, there is a chance you may have a damaged motherboard or cpu.

I have a problem with dell nps-210ab. When i plug in power cable and without presing a button to start a computer cpu fan start turn very very fast it seam like he will fly away. No bios sound. Nothing

That is indicative of a Power On Self Test failure of the system. Remove all peripheral connections, all expansion cards and RAM and see if the symptoms change. If they do not, then replace the motherboard

Desktop with 8KDA dead so replaced power supply but still dead. Electricity still coming to computer but no signs of life. ?

First, power down your PC, remove the power cord and then remove the RAM from the computer. Now turn the computer on. If it doesn't beep at you several times, you have a bad motherboard.
Note: When doing any work on your PC, make sure you disconnect the power and touch some metal on the case to remove static from your hands.
If it does beep at you with the RAM out, the motherboard is OK.
First, before going too far with testing, try simply putting all the RAM back in and turning the computer on. The process of removing the RAM and reinstalling it is called re-seeding. Sometimes re-seeding the ram is all you need to do.
Note: You can also try re-seeding other peripherals, but we will get to that.
If you still aren't having any luck, you will need to test each stick separately.
To properly test the ram, remove the power cord from the computer, remove all peripherals (videocards, sound cards, modems, tv tuner.. etc) and disconnect all drives (hard drive, dvd/cd, floppy).
If you only have one stick of RAM, leave that stick in and turn the computer on. If it boots, the problem isn't with the stick, but with one of the peripherals.
If you have multiple sticks of RAM, you will need to test each stick on it's own with all the peripherals disconnected.
If your RAM is ok, you can now single out which peripheral is giving you an issue by adding them back in one at a time and trying to boot your computer.
If your computer is now booting with everything in it, your computer simply needed to have everything re-seeded - lucky you!

Puter wont turn on

try to unplug again then plug in switch-o the power if it won't work then your power supply is busted you need to replace the power supply. if you want to make sure dismantle the power supply that connects to the motherboard, the connector has 20pins, then plug the power supply connect pin green and pin grey if the fan will rotate then the power supply is still okay.. if your power supply is ok check your outlet voltage if there is power including the circuit breaker that supplies power from this outlet.
