You can find that in a non working power supply, cut the damage terminal and replace that from non working. be sure for the color code of wires to be replace.

I've got a new Gigabyte Ga-M68Mt-D3 mobo paired with a cooler master 460 watt power supple. Cpu is Amd phenom II 3.2 ghz with 4 gig of DDR3 ram. I powered up the supply attached to my ATX power supply...


Most motherboards now have a 24-pin power supply connector. If you haven't already found a diagram showing the pinouts of the 20- and 24-pin power plugs, here's one borrowed from a handy site:

pgh_pa_guy_1.jpg

The two plugs are essentially the same, but the 24-pin version duplicates some voltages on the extra pins. The extra pins in the larger connector were meant to provide extra current paths for voltages that see heavy loads from newer processors and motherboard circuitry. Depending on how a motherboard is designed, it might work with a 20-pin plug connected (leaving pins 11, 12, 23 and 24 empty). But typically if the board has a 24-pin connector it needs the 24-pin power supply plug.

Most power supplies have a 20-pin plug with a separate 4-pin section that fastens to it for connection to a 24-pin mobo connector. It typically has one side designed to slide onto the end of the 20-pin plug, essentially turning it into the 24-pin version. This added plug does not have a retaining clamp on its side, so you can tell it from the the 4-pin CPU power plug. The wire colors are also different. For reference, here is the processor power plug, from the same website:

pgh_pa_guy_2.jpg
New motherboard specs call for the separate processor power connector for the same reason the extra pins were added to the power supply connector: to handle the high currents needed by increasingly faster CPUs.

When the motherboard has these connectors, you need to use them all to get everything working. Hope this helps. Thanks to smspowersupply.com for the diagrams, and thank you for using Fixya.

I dont know how to connect the usb port in my board


Connect the USB header to the USB pins on the motherboard.Generally the connection on the motherboard has 2 rows of pins, 5 on top, four underneath.There are 2 types of headers, 1 rectangular with 5 hols on top row and 4 on bottom. Connect to MB ensuring the holes match up to the pins. You may also have a 4 + 4 connector with 2 grounds. Connect so that the pins match up to the labels on the pins on the motherboard.ie. power, d-, d+, ground.

There are other motherboard USB configurations, but the above is for 99% of them.

Ibm netvista x41 wont power up


measuring 12v at the psu is not enough. the psu have several voltage outputs ranging from 12volts to 3.3 volts and maybe even 2.2 volts.. firstly, check all onboard USB ports, a bent or shorted pin in a USB port will prevent the psu from operating. next, the psu has a safety connection to the mainboard, this is called the power good signal ( pwrgd) and it is a signal from the psu to the mainboard and tells the mainboard that everything in the psu is functioning correctly. If the powergood signal is lost ( drops from 5volts to zero volts) the mainboard will issue an interuppt to the cpu and the cpu will shut down, this will also shut the board down to prevent damage and data loss. mainboards all use pretty much the same connectors so your board will have either a 20 pin power connector or a 24 pin one. It may also have an additional 4 pin connector to power the cpu and northbridge functions. use a known good psu and plug this into your board along with the 4 pin connector and attempt a switch on. If the system begins to boot, replace the psu. if not, try unplugging or removing everything connected to the board, pay special attention to expansion cards and usb ports. remove the ram sticks and video cards if fitted, then attempt to boot again. if the system does not respond, replace the main board. if it now begins to boot, refit everything one item at a time and try starting the machine. turn off before refitting the next item and start the machine up again. when you get to the problem item, the machine will stop starting. If all else fails, replace the mainboard or take the machine to a reputable repairer..

Replacing a power supply.


Hi,

You need to connect both 20-pin and 4-pin connector to *********** board. Your 4-pin connector is located between your CPU and a I/O connectors.

If you did it right first time, check if you have anything shorted on your board because your old P/S could go bad for reason.

Good luck!!!

You may have a short between the board & the case. (check it).
Even if this means removing the board. That clicking you hear through the speakers suggest a short. Make sure your using (Stand offs) which keeps your board off the case's mounting surface. Check the back plate so the tabs are touching the ports comming off the board for good ground.
Double check the you have fully connected both the main power ATX_ 20 pin power connector & the auxiliary 4-pin power
connector. pg. 10. Connecting 20/24-pin power cable Remove & re-seat. If your PSU has a 20 pin connector make sure you connect the cable from the correct end.
Without POST you will not get video to load. Reset your bios
pg. 9 in your manual. Re-enter your bios and setup the bios settings for your board.

Let me know if this helps you reach POST?
Good luck!
