If you mean power to the devices themselves, the 4-pin connectors coming from the power supply plug in to the drives. The red wire is +5 volts, the yellow wire is +12 volts and the black wires are ground (earthing) connections. IDE hard drives and CD drives use the same connector. SATA drives may have that same connector as well, but most use a different style. SATA-ready power supplies will have 1 or more plugs available. Adapters to switch from the 4-pin IDE plug to SATA type are available for supplies that don't have the right connector.

If you are asking what power pins from the mainboard power supply connector are supplying power to specific controller parts on the mainboard, that kind of detailed information is not available. Mainboards manufacturers do not supply circuit diagrams or repair information. They simply replace any boards that fail while still covered by the warranty, and expect you wil just buy a new one if the warranty has expired.

Much information about ATX boards including the power supply cable pins is found here:

Were can i find driver for my motherboard, is asus p4v8x-mx, and i have windows 7 ultimate Thanks


You can find drivers at the asus site. However, If you select "motherboards" from the "Windows7 supported product models" list on the left side of the page, you will find the p4v8x-mx is not listed. There are no W7 drivers available.

You can still find drivers for supported OSes with the search function on the page. Pick "motherboard" from the product drop-down menu, then pick "socket478" from select series. Pick your model from the "select models" menu, and finally choose the operating system.

If you want to upgrade your system to W7, you'll need a newer motherboard as well.

Hi,

if colours don,t match up. your main connectors hdd/pwr/reset remove the front panel on the computer. and check from the switches located on the front panel. or you could use a multimeter and test for continuity. if you have one.
you should have green/white red/white orange/white Or blue white.
