Question about Intel Acbel Power Supply Supports ATX 12V v2.0/ EPS 12V v2.1/AMD ATX-GES (PSACBEL) Power Supply
I'm making a "ghetto" cd player from my old CDRom, and my old power unit (it says acbel on it) isn't puting any power out without it being pluged into my motherboard. How can i make it work without damaging it?
If you want to switch on PC Power adaptor alone, take bigest multiwire connector and shortcut GREEN wire with BLACK wire. GREEN is PS_ON and BLACK is Ground. There should be only one green and several black wires. All black are Ground.

There are two pins on the atx connector you need to bridge. You can wire a switch to the pins too if you want so you can toggle on and off. Otherwise, there is a guy on eBay (seller id:
antronst) that sells a connector with the pins already bridged with a on/off switch and a resistor wired in to provide some stability for five or six dollars.
Here is a diagram. Make sure it is a standard atx power supply. Some old Dells had goofy wiring.
