For 120 volt operation use
black for the hot, White for the natural, Green for earth ground.
For 240 volt operation use;

Black and White for the 240 volt and Green for earth ground.
Black is generally designated as the "Hot" or "positive" .
You must make sure the switch on the power supply is set for the voltage you are using. ie: 120/240

SOURCE: i am trying to hook

The green is ground. There is no "positive" and "negative" because the current in the outlet is alternating (AC). They are called "Live" and "Neutral". The Neutral i safe to touch, the Live is deadly. There is no difference how to connect them - in both ways the power supply will work.

I give up! Why would you need a schematic for a computer power supply? I've been in the computer business for over 30 years and have never needed a power supply schematic. Just curious!

Fan stopped working


Power supplies are not meant to be fixed. If you have electronics repair experience, crack it open and replace the fan with a new pc cooling fan of the same size and power.

Where can I find power supply for HP model ATX300-12ZBD


There are lots of ATX power supplies on the market. You do not need to use a HP 300 watt power supply. Just purchase one that suit your requirements - 300 watt or more. These power supplies have standard mounting holes.

Turn on the computer nothing happen then smell burning from the power supply! turned off right away.


That power supply is probably dead. try your motherboard witha known-to-be-good power supply to determine if your system has survived. IN my experience the failrate for antec sp450 watt psu is close to 40% over 4 years (300 pc:s at university), so there is a high probability that your psu is unrecoverable.

Power supply won't come on, no output of any voltage. LED power indicater on motherboard is on.


First question: is it a new power supply or existing one?

Then we can progress to some disagnosis.

Where to buy a Antec AR300


You should ebay or just put the model number in Google. Let me suggest that while the fan may be going out, the heatsink will still be ok. You should open up the fan box and see what size of fan is in there. I believe it looks like a 120mm fan. You can buy a nice one for under $20 and it'll go right in without you even having to remove the unit from the motherboard.

I removed the power supply to install motherboard and did not pay attention to the 3 wires attached to the case. what is the order of the wires? They are green/yellow, blue and brown.


All the wires from the power supply are power connectors, depending upon the motherboard not all power connectors from the power supply maybe required. If there are no matching sockets on the motherboard, then that power connector is not required.
