Question about eMachines Emachine T2245 Power Supply Replacement 300W
I opened the case (for cleaning) and didnt realize that while cleaning a connector came loose. I have no idea where this connector should be plugged in. The connector type is P6 white in color with red, 2-black and yellow wires running to it. The connected end is attached to a squarish black flat part (of which there are 2 of them, one of them is marked "slave" on a 2" flat gray wire looking thing) both of those black squarish things has those same black, red & yellow wires coming from them. Hope you can tell me where this white P6 connector should go, as i can't find any visible 4-pins anywhere.
What a Marvelous person!
You have described a 4-pin Peripheral power cable, ('P6'),
An IDE harddrive, of which the 4-pin Peripheral power cable example, is plugged into.
Another look at an IDE (PATA) harddrive,
However, I do not know if the flat IDE ribbon cable marked Slave, goes to a secondary Harddrive, or an optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)
Either way the point is moot. BOTH of those 'squarish flat black' units, HAVE a 4-pin Peripheral power cable to them.
Another hardware component, those type of power wires CAN go to, is a computer case fan.
However not ALL power cables have to be used. Sometimes there are extra ones. These are in case they are need later.
The optical drive, or drives; that you put a CD, or DVD disk in; can use a 4-pin Peripheral power cable.
(IDE/PATA optical drive)
Harddrive's can use a 4-pin Peripheral power cable.
A computer case fan may use a 4-pin Peripheral power cable.
Or the 4-pin Peripheral power cable you see, may simply be an extra one. One if needed in the future.
The eMachines T2245 uses a Trigem (Manufacturer), Imperial GLVE (Model name), motherboard,
Supports an IDE (PATA) harddrive, (Or 2 of them)
Supports an IDE (PATA) optical drive, (or two of them)
I DO hope you are following Anti-Static Procedures!
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
Relieve your body of Static, BEFORE reaching inside your computer.
Computer on a table, computer Unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open, empty computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.
IF, you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.
Also I would like to add;
For additional questions please post in a Comment.
