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.

Works Great, But you can also go one step further and short the 'Blue and Yellow' to cause a constant load.. Then the On-Off switch will always control the power. Good Info Link.

Where can i buy a compaq presario power supply


Almost any standard ATX psu will fit this model, 86mm x 150 mm x 140 mm I would think. (PSUs come in standard sizes, most are ATX with depths into the case of 140mm upwards. Your old PSU s 140mm deep, so I should get one that also that deep. Higher powered ones can be can be as deep as 180 mm which wouldn't fit in your computer). It would be better if you bought a good brand one such as Antec, Corsair Silverstone, Seasonic, even an a Zalman or Akasa to name but a few, of at least equivalent power (it does not matter if it is a higher rated power, your computer will only take what it needs). Be certain that the PSU has enough of the correct type of connectors for your PC - Molex 4 pin power, minimolex for floppy if you use that, and SATApower if you have those, and 4 pin (I think for your pc) "P4" connector for your mainboard/CPU, and a 20+4 (20 pin with detachable 4 pin section for 24 pin m/b) pin motherboard connector. Be certain that it will accept the correct input voltage for your location (many will accept 90-240V ac now). You might try to get a second hand one.

I bought a HP 6710f Pavillion desktop, running windows 7, and found out it only has a 250 watt power supply. I turned around and bought an Antec Greenwatts 500 watt ATX 12v v2.3 psu to install for future...


Presuming you mean the Earthwatts 500:
Should work, though the Earthwatts has the 24 pin ATX instead of the 20-pin.
http://www.atxpowersupplies.com/manuals/Antec-Earthwatts-EA-500D-user-manual.pdf
You just need to snap the 24-pin connector apart to make it work as a 20-pin. It can be snapped back together for future motherboards.
The Bestec is just a standard ATX power supply

The green light on the back is flashing, but when I push the power button nothing happens, any ideas what it could be?


The Green LED light flashing indicates a bad Power Supply. Weak voltage power rail.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=404643&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=7&submit.x=7&lang=en&cc=us

Troubleshooting Power Supply Issues HP Pavilion A520n,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph06788&tmp_task=solveCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&site=null&lang=en&key=null&product=404643#N207

Click on > Power Supply light is on or flashes

"If the LED is still flashing (it should not flash with all connectors removed), plug the power cable into a different power outlet that is known to be good. If the LED still flashes, the power supply should be replaced."


Cause?
The leading cause is the computer is dirty inside, to include the Power Supply
The next cause is that Electrolytic Capacitors have failed inside the Power Supply.

Solution is to replace the Power Supply.

The Power Supply used is the ATX form factor. The type of Power Supply used in over 80 percent of PC computers out there, and very readily available.

Size of the power supply case is approximately 6 inches Wide, 5-1/2 inches long (5.5), and 3-1/2 inches Tall. (3.5)

It is a 250, or 300 Watt generic unit, probably made by Bestec, Delta, or HiPro.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00072236&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=404643

Scroll down to see the illustration and photo of the motherboard.

Power cables needed are;

A) 20-pin ATX main power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

{ ATX power supply's today come with a 20 + 4-pin ATX main power cable.
The power cable can be used as a 20-pin, or a 24-pin.

Add the 4-pin connector to make it a 24-pin, or do not use it, and have a 20-pin }


B) Enough standard 4-pin Peripheral power cables for the IDE (PATA) harddive, {1}, and the optical drive/s.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Today's power supply's come with either at least 4, or 6 of these power cables.

C) One Floppy Drive power cable.
Won't be used for a Floppy Disk Drive on your computer. It's power for the Memory Card Reader.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#floppy


All of the above power cables are typical when purchasing an ATX power supply today.

When I turn it on monitor reads vga no input and the power is on, the fan is still running.


Bad Power Supply. Weak voltage power rail.

Has enough power to light LED lights, and maybe spin fans, but not enough to turn the Processor on.

1) ALL of the LED lights on at once use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

3) A typical Processor uses 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.

The Compaq Presario SR2013WM desktop computer, comes with an AMD Athlon 64 3800+ processor, that fits in a Socket AM2.

1) http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00777760&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3300335


Can use up to 62 Watts.

2) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_64_microprocessors#.22Orleans.22_.28F2_.26_F3.2C_90_nm.29

No Processor operating, no computer.
No computer operating, No Signal to the monitor. (No video signal, or also known as No VGA Signal)

The Power Supply used is just one of the common ATX form factor power supply's.
Used in over 80 percent of PC's out there, and readily available.
(ATX size of the power supply case, is approximately 5-1/2 inches Long, 3-1/2 inches Tall, and 6 inches Wide)

It is 250 Watt, and a generic model. Probably made by Bestec, Delta, or HiPro.
(You can use a larger wattage Power Supply with NO problems.
A computer ONLY uses the power it needs, and NO more)

A) The ATX main power cable is a 24-pin ATX main power cable. All of the new power supply's have an ATX main power cable, where the connector can be used as a 20-pin, or 24-pin.

B) Uses a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable.

C) Past the two power cables above, just make sure the Power Supply has a SATA power cable, (For the SATA harddrive), a Floppy Drive power cable, (Used for the Card Reader), and enough 4-pin standard Peripheral power cables.
(Misnomered as 'Molex')


3) Typical 24-pin ATX main power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

4) Typical 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

5) Typical SATA power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

IF, the SATA harddrive has a provision for using a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, AND a SATA power cable, ONLY USE THE SATA POWER CABLE.

If you use both you will burn up the SATA harddrive.


6) Typical 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Why is my hp pavilion 523w not working it just makes enough power to make a green light flash


The Green LED light you see flashing indicates you have a bad Power Supply.

Computer unplugged from power, computer on a table, computer case open, observe Anti-Static Precautions.
Clean the inside of the computer out with a can of compressed air for computers, (Or may take two, and a few Q-tips), and replace the Power Supply.

The Power Supply is an ATX form factor. The ATX style of Power Supply is found in over 80 percent of personal computers out there, and is readily available everywhere.

It's a 250 to 300 Watt power supply.
Probably made by Bestec, HiPro, or Delta, or some other generic power supply manufacturer of low quality power supply's.

Has a 20-pin ATX main power cable, and a 4-pin ATX +12 volt power cable.
Plus the usual amount of 4-pin Peripheral power cables, and a Floppy Disk power cable.

Install power supply


Relative easy. Open up the case and be careful to see what wires are connect. Replace each one carefully. There is the big wire that containes a bundle. This goes to the motherboard. There is only one way to install it. There is a 4 prong molex wire that goes to the hard drive. There are extra wires just in case you need to add another hard drive for example. There shoudl be 4 screws holding the power supply in place. Remove them from the back of the PC

I have a HP-Pressario 10 Desktop which had the cables from the 250 watt power supply unhooked. I need a diagram to rehook the cables correctly. This is a 20 pin hookup.


well the PSU cables for the mobo should only be able to be hooked to one place on the board. i'm not sure if this is a 20 pin and a 4 pin or just a 20 pin, but the 20 pin connector should only fit one place and snap in. you don't need a diagram, if you're wondering about all the rest of the cables it doesn't matter where you plug what 4 pin connector to. as long as they're connected..

Not sure about upgrading power supply


In many cases the additional 4 pin section slides up and off of the main power plug for use in your particular unit.

Not sure about updated power supply


Gee. If HP recomends you not to hook up the extra four pins it must be because the four either go nowhere,which may cause a short or ground condition.Or that the extra pins will power something that will then  be in excess andd cause it too burn out. They know what will happen and for that rwason caution you not to do it. Of course it is you machine and  if you have extra money to replace things with go ahead and do it if you really want to know that badly.
