Chances are that 250w power supply is not going to power a motherboard with a 24 pin connector, but you can try.
You will need to purchase a 20 to 24 pin adapter cable.

I found this site for schematics but am interested why you'd spend the time when reasonably priced supplies are readily available from reliable vendors. I've pulled apart a few supplies and have had some luck repairing them but overall it wasn't worth the time. Switching power supplies are not the easiest to trouble shoot. Base wishes.
