Hi, depending on how many fan plugs you have on your motherboard, you may need to get an adapter that goes from the fan plug to a molex plug..

Make sure that you connected all of the required power connectors on to the motherboard. Depending on you motherboard, there might be a 4 pin connector next to the CPU that supplies extra power to the CPU. Also if you have a dedicated video card (not integrated to the motherboard), it may need more power as higher end video cards need direct power from the power supply. Also make sure you have your monitor connected correctly.
With that said, I have a feeling that it is the 4 pin CPU connector since it is easy to miss.

I have a working hard drive (Barracuda 7200.7) from a 2007 HP Pavilion a430n that contains files that I would like to retrieve.


Your description has me confused. I'm not clear on which power and data cables you are using. You described pulling one cable from first hard drive and connecting it to your second drive. Extra power connections should have been in a loose wire bundle somewhere in the computer. (Often they are tucked into an unused drive bay.)

The SR1720NX has 2 SATA controllers and two IDE controllers. Thus it can have 2 SATA and 4 IDE devices. The computer sometimes shipped with a SATA hard drive or an IDE hard drive. In all cases, the hard drives must be connected to the data cable (and to the motherboard) and then the power connection from the power supply has to be connected. So there should be 2 cables plugged into each drive. The optical drive is usually an IDE drive for this model, also a master drive.

The IDE power connection is a large 4-pin Molex connector; the SATA power cables are a smaller 5 pin connector. There is also a small 4 pin connector that powers a floppy drive, if present. IDE data cables are a wide 40-pin ribbon cable (sometimes an 80-pin cable for master/slave). The SATA data cable is a 15 pin cable.

First make sure that the jumper on the drive from the A430n is across the two pins in the second position (counting from the side away from the power connection). This is the cable select option. Next make sure that the IDE cable is firmly connected to both drives and the motherboard. (I've sometimes loosened the data cable while connecting the drives.) Finally check that the appropriate power cables are firmly connected to all the drives. Then power up the computer. (With the second drive on the Slave connection, if the device on the Master connection isn't powered up/recognized, then weird things may occur.)

BTW: you should be alert to the power needs for the computer. The original power supply could be overloaded with the extra drive. You might be better off using an external drive enclosure (USB) or a USB/SATA/IDE dongle that leaves the drive out in the open. Connect these with extreme care following the directions for when to connect the power supply. Some enclosures won't work without reformatting the drive - you do not want one of those.

I hope this helps.

Most motherboards now have a 24-pin power supply connector. If you haven't already found a diagram showing the pinouts of the 20- and 24-pin power plugs, here's one borrowed from a handy site:

pgh_pa_guy_1.jpg

The two plugs are essentially the same, but the 24-pin version duplicates some voltages on the extra pins. The extra pins in the larger connector were meant to provide extra current paths for voltages that see heavy loads from newer processors and motherboard circuitry. Depending on how a motherboard is designed, it might work with a 20-pin plug connected (leaving pins 11, 12, 23 and 24 empty). But typically if the board has a 24-pin connector it needs the 24-pin power supply plug.

Most power supplies have a 20-pin plug with a separate 4-pin section that fastens to it for connection to a 24-pin mobo connector. It typically has one side designed to slide onto the end of the 20-pin plug, essentially turning it into the 24-pin version. This added plug does not have a retaining clamp on its side, so you can tell it from the the 4-pin CPU power plug. The wire colors are also different. For reference, here is the processor power plug, from the same website:

pgh_pa_guy_2.jpg
New motherboard specs call for the separate processor power connector for the same reason the extra pins were added to the power supply connector: to handle the high currents needed by increasingly faster CPUs.

When the motherboard has these connectors, you need to use them all to get everything working. Hope this helps. Thanks to smspowersupply.com for the diagrams, and thank you for using Fixya.

I NEED REPLACE COOLER FAN, MAINBOARD HAVE NO PLUG


Change the power connector on the cooler fan so it can plug into the 12volts on the 4 pin power connector, not the 5volts.

Drive has too any pins


That is perfectly normal. Just make sure that the connector is lined up properly and everything should work just fine. On the drive itself, there is a 'missing pin'. Make sure that the missing pin lines up with the right spot on the connector.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Extra wire /fan 3pin hole 1wire where to plug in X 2 fans


If your cpu fan has a 4 pin connector & your mb has a 3 pin you can still use it. Just leave one pin exposed. The extra pin is for a speed control sensor that not all mb's support. The chassis fan has a different connector on the board marked "cha fan". This one is a 3 pin connector. Most of the asus boards have 1 of these. If you wish to run more than one you can either buy a "y" adapter that allows you to connect 2 fans to 1, you could use an extra 4 pin molex to power an extra fan but that would give you no control over the fan, or you could buy a fan controller and hook all your extra fans to it. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate my solution fixya. Thanks.

13pins "from the inside monitor" "to the VGA 15 pins connector


hai dear,
i checked your problem and found that you open the cover of monitor and you find the two jack of data cable in main pcb and neck card( 2 connector of data cable).plz you cut the connector of data cable and you will find 8 wires in connector.related red(invild extra ground),green(invild extra ground),blue(invild extra ground),black gnd,white,orange,gold(extra gnd) and now you cut the red wire, you will find two wires.so you refix the main red wire pin no-1 of connector and red gnd pin no-6,green main wire pin no-2 and green gnd pin no-7,main blue wire pin no-3 and blue gnd pin no-8.check for the horizental sync and vertical sync wire you should go in main pcb which invild the other connector. there is present in print, h- sync(two wire of h- sync main wire in pin no-13 and other pin no-5) and ver.-sync wire in pin no-14.first you will check the whose h-sync and vert-sync in color and now finally other wires will fix any pin of connector.
