Question about Computers & Internet
When we replaced a monitor and opened computer to remove dust we noticed exposed wires, appears to have overheated. The RED wire connected to the cd drive
Http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817709010 This is the closest replacement. Ensure the diamentions are the same and it will work fine.

SOURCE: replacing power supply HP M8120N
Here is the link for the upgrade and service guide.
This one is just as easy as 1) removing the side panel; 2) Remove the four screws that hold the power supply into position; 3) Remove the power supply cables from the motherboard (NOTE: If the media bay reader is in the way, you remove the front bezel by pressing the release tabs on the bezel and it will swing open. Remove the one screw securing the bay in position, then slide it forward so you can reach the power cable to the motherboard.); 4) Remove the power supply cables from the hard drives, cd rom drives, and other peripherals inside the PC. 5) Remove power supply...sometimes there is a button to push and it will slide out, sometimes not. 6) Replace power supply, then reverse procedures.
Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Because there are so many different case and motherboard combinations
sometimes it can be difficult following the instructions for connecting
the front panel, USB header and audio header.
Below is a few generic guide that should stop some of the confusion with the labels on the wires.
Front Panel Audio
***Please note this is a generic wiring guide and we can not guarantee it will work with every motherboard. Please check your motherboard manual first. Wiring the headers wrong can cause damage to the motherboard and case, this damage is not covered by the warranty***
another handy USB wiring guide can be found here http://www.directron.com/installusb.html

These wires vary based on the type of the board each wire lead is labeled to coorespond with the pins on the board. You need to reference the manual for your specific motherboard. If you don't have the original get it from the vendor support site or just google it. Unless your motherboard is an odd brand it should be easy to find.
