You don't need to convert from -5 to +5 just from any +5 pin make bridge to that place you need that is sonlution if your power supply i have more than 350W.

I agree that if you have a blown power supply that requires repair it doesn't make economic sense to try to fix it. Some repairs on higher end power supplies DO make sense; bad switches, fans and connectors can be fixed easily by most users. In this case I would first verify the motherboard manual is correct before I purchase anything especially if the PC is working with the polarity "reversed" as it is now. You can call the manufacturers tech support to verify the power outputs, search the Internet for a pin-out diagram and verify it that way. An easier and probably better alternative is to purchase an inexpensive $10 to $15 (US) power supply tester. They are easy to find (here anyway) and would easily detect a voltage or polarity issue if one exists.

Yes you should replace the power supply and you can do it yourself go to the back of the tower and at the top you will be able to see the power supply it is held in with 3 to 4 screws open the side panel and unplug all the wires that go from the power supply to the different components of the computer
then unscrew the power supply from the back of the tower and lift it out you will need to get a ATX

Cpu fan stop few second after starting pc


Hello,have you installed new motherboard or CPU?
Follow these steps again
1) Disconnect the power cord from the back of the computer & open up the case.

2) Wear an anti-static glove or at very least discharge your static by touching a metal surface or power supply

3) Disconnect the main 20pin ATX power connector from the motherboard & the square 4pin ATX2 power connector

4) Remove any PCI cards you have & disconnect ALL drive cabling from the MOTHERBOARD. Also disconnect any internal USB fly leads from the motherboard.

5) You should now have ONLY the cpu+heatsink/fan, memory & video card installed. Locate the round silver battery in the bottom right corner of the board. Just below it, you'll see a plastic jumper cap. This cap should be covering 2 pins (pins 1 + 2) with pin 3 bare. It will be marked JP1. Move the jumper to cover pins 2-3 instead. Leave in this position for about 30 seconds, then return the jumper to its original position (pins 1-2).

6) Reconnect the square 4pin ATX2 power connector & the main 20 pin ATX power connector. Make sure that the case speaker or buzzer is connected also.

7) Make sure the only external devices connected are the keyboard/mouse & monitor. Reconnect the power lead & power on the system

Iam interested in up-grading to a new mother board, and or wondering about what parts would be compatible to do so!


This depends upon how old the desktop computer is, if is more than say 5 years old then the power supply may not have the the right ATX power connector for the new motherboard (ATX2 has 24 pins, ATX has 20 pins). I would get a new hard drive they do fail with age.
You could reuse the CD/DVD drive, plus the graphic card, and sound card if it is not part of the motherboard, also the monitor, keyboard, mouse (but these are low cost items)
Basically by the time you strip everything out of the case and put in new components, you would be better getting a new computer.
Then remove your data from the hard drive and sell the computer or network it to your new computer and use it as a backup file server.

Balance #CN6555 note book


A local PC store should be able to supply at least the power connector that is within the laptop. A lot of laptops only have solder points holding the power connector in place. Over time and putting pressure on the power cord will loosen those points. The power connector itself should cost about 50 bucks. Having it installed depends on labor charges.

I recently purchased an external hard drive, and how do connect it to my computer.


External Hard Drive is mostly of the USB interfacing type. If urs one is the same, then it is just as simple as plugging in a pen drive in the USB port. If it has external power supplies then u can easily figure out how to connect. There are two parts in the power supply (if external power supply cable is provided), 3-pin main power supply connector and other is the adapter which goes to the external hard drive.plug in the other end of the adapter into the hard drive (there is a hole in it). connect the main power cable to the adapter extension. now for the usb Hard Drive, connect the USB cable to the USB port of the computer. Switch on the power supply to the Hard drive and u r ready to use ur brand new External Hard Drive. If it is a Firewire interfacing one then u may need to open the CPU box, and then connect the firewire connector on to the motherboard firewire port. It is easy to identify, it is a red colored port/connector.

Power supply


Get a new external carrier, new external drive, or find a power supply that puts out the same voltage and at least the same current. If you cannot find a power supply with the same connector you can cut the cables on the new power supply and the old one and splice the connector from the old power supply on.

BTW please try to put some more specific information when asking about a problem. The more info the easier it is to solve.
