    tried it on my BesteC atx-250-12E. Shorted the green to the black as you showed. NO voltage out on any connector and no fan spinning. Thanks. Fuse internally was still good.

    This was from an emachine desktop.

    Thanks though!

Try a 10 watt 10 ohm resistor across the 5 volt wire red or an orange and to a black, they need a minumum load to work, also you need to tie the grey (power ok to and orange3.3v)

I´m afraid the HP-150SS has a propietary configuration. I have one defective unit (there´s no GREEN wire on it), and researching how to fixit I found this: It´s in german, but doesn´t matter, check the last picture, it shows the Power On location. Good luck Sazabius

All you have to do is connect the green wire (normally thinner than the rest of the cables) to any black wire. This can be done easily with a short piece of wire. If the power supply doesn?t immediately turn on (within 2 seconds) remove the wire, you may have connected it to the wrong wires, although most power supplies won?t allow a short to damage the unit. Once on, the power supply isn?t loaded so the voltages won?t be as stable as if they were used in a full PC, however it?ll be sufficient for most uses. It?s not a good idea to leave a power supply on in this fashion for a long period of time too."

    The Dell PSU should be no different from other units as they all connect the same way to the motherboard, although 150W is very low for todays needs.

Pinouts power supply for hp d530 ultraslim

Hi lantzgema,
I looked up the specs of your d530 and all I could find out is that you have a 150 power supply, calling HP technical support was no help at all.
I did find some pinouts you can look at and determine which one exactly you have. Hope this help out.
If this is still not what you have there are other pinouts at the same website.

I have a burned out Bestec ATX-250-12z power supply for a hp pavilion a320n. I need to know if a Dynex® - 400-Watt ATX CPU Power Supply, will work in its place.

yes it should do provided your current psu is not a small mATX one. ATX power supplies are pretty generic. Make sure you get one that has enough connectors to suit your system, having said that, Considering it's an off the shelf PC I would guess most PSU's would have the right number and type of connections.

The pc wont power up and the green led on the PSU is just flashing, is the bestec atx 250 12z broken?

Most likely yes.

I would also reccomend an upgrade to that PSU when replacing it.

Something in the 450-Watt neighborhood is usually a bit more robust.

Hello diallo

Do you mean which wire is the +5VDC on?

There is an industry standard for coloring of computer power supply wires.

+5VDC is on the RED wires.

HERE is a link on Computer Power Supplies "ABCs" that will be very helpful to you, I think.

Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have any further questions.

Thank you

If connector have two big brown wires (pins 1 and 11) and a small brown wire (pin 2). then short circuit the small brown wire with a big brown wire (pins 1 and 2).
Also short circuit the small black wire (pin 16) with a big black wire (pin 17).
Ps. The Power Supply needs a minimal load ex: 1A.
