COMPAQ 272776-001 Power Supply 200W

COMPAQ 272776-001 200 W Power Supply - I cant get the power supply to start when pressing the power button on the computer. In the past, it would start after pushing the power button several times, or turning on and off the power strip. I want to know which leads trigger the start of the power supply. There are red, yellow, and black going to the motherboard. I was guessing the yellow was the trigger. I wanted to know if I can jump leads to make it work. Like the yellow and black, or is it something else I need to do?

    thank you for your answer. My power supply came as part of the system. It has a push button on off cable instead of an on/off switch in the back. I beleive that the start button on all computers actives the power supply through the motherboard connection. I am trying to find out which leads going to the motherboard trigger the on/off for the power supply. I did try to push the power cord in. Because it did seem to be a problem. But it didnt solve it.



    thank you,

They all do, I believe, I installed a new one, into my computer system not long ago, are you sure your power supply is one that the computer can handle? You shouldn't have that much of a problem - I wouldn't go pulling apart the wires on the power supply, its made like that for a reason, what you could try is see if your power supply has seated properly, sometimes if your not working on a flat surface the power supply plug won't go in properly and will not be pushed in all of the way, try laying your computer on its side, and pushing in the plug also, each motherboard has a certain amount of plugs for example 20 and 24, some motherboards want it to be a 20 power plug and others want it to be 24 power plug, thats the plug thats connected to your motherboard, that I'm talking about. make sure you have the right number, and that the motherboard plug and the power supply plug match, basically have the same number of connectors, (I mean that little white plug at the end of the red,yellow,black, wires, I hope this helps. ps- I really had to push on the white plug to get my seated properly

It could be a software glitch that is preventing your motherboard from powering up: try to unplug the main power cord from the main AC source for about 5 minutes, replug and power Desktop again and see if it is back to normal.

2pin male connector of the motherboard (261671-001) purpose?


the switching power supplies are fun, by 2 pin plug is that from the AC side or computer side?

from AC side its easy enought to go buy another plug thought it should have come with one.

i cant remember any 2 pin plugs on the computer side and i have taken quite a few of these apart. there is a four pin plug...

wire colors,
yellow 12 volt
black ground
red 5 volt,

if the old supply was any of those colors you can desolder from the old supply and re solder it onto the new supply. if it was another color then i would suspect a random signal wire or cutout, keep you from frying yourself with the case open... try plugging up the new supply and turning on the computer if it runs why worry about it?

Loud Humming Noise from P/Supply


Yes, it is time to replace it. Open the case and make sure it is a standard size before you buy another one. Just measure length, width & height. You can put a higher wattage supply in there, it just won't have to work as hard to power your computer.

Pc no start.........


You might have a bad power supply. If you have a voltmeter, check the voltage of the standby power supply. This voltage is present even if the system is off, plugged in. It powers a small portion of the logic circuit. It should measure within a couple of tenths of exactly +5 volts. If it is low, or high, this will prevent turn-on. The purple wire of the 24 pin connector is what carries this to the motherboard. The color coding layout is found at http://pinouts.ru/Power/atx_v2_pinout.shtml If by chance this voltage is OK, then check the full on voltages also. Repair of the defective supply is probably by replacement of one or more small electrolytic capacitors in the appropriate circuit, especially if you are technically savvy. Capacitors are available through several suppliers; Digi-Key supplyies Panasonic FC series which are suitable for switching power supplies. Or, you may just replace the whole unit.
