3 COM Black Ground
4 5V Red +5 VDC
5 COM Black Ground
6 5V Red +5 VDC
7 COM Black Ground
8 PWR_OK Gray Power Ok (is a status signal generated by the power supply to notify the computer that the DC operating voltages are within the ranges required for proper computer operation)
9 5VSB Purple +5 VDC Standby Voltage (max 10mA)
10 12V Yellow +12 VDC
11 3.3V Orange +3.3 VDC

/PSON activated by pressing and releasing the power button while the power supply is in standby mode. Activating /PSON connects the power supply's /PSON input to ground, thereby switching the power supply to full-on condition.
18 AWG is recommended for all wires except pin 11, which should be 22 AWG. For 300W configurations 16 AWG is recommended.
There are several ATX variants.
Hope this helps.

I have a smps(model compaq PS-5500-1C). How can check its out put volatage?

Hello Anvar, hi, to run the power supply on its own, you need to short the green wire with the black wire. (plug in the unit)
using a Volt meter, select a range of DC 50V. put the black probe of the voltmeter to any black wire, and the red probe to the ff:

red is 5V
Yellow is 12V
orange is around 3.3V
Blue is negative 12 (switch or interchange the probe to properly read 12V on the voltmeter)
White is negative 5.

Trying to find wich two or more wires from wiring harness turn on power supply for a compaq presario 7594

In ATX PC power supplies, here is the wiring scheme:

Green: PS-ON (+5V)
Gray: PWR OK (+5V)
Purple: +5VSB
Blue: -12V
White: -5V
Orange: +3.3V
Red: +5V
Yellow: +12V
Black: Ground (AKA Common)

Use a paper clip to connect the GREEN wire and a BLACK wire. There should be a black one right next to the green. This is how I test PSUs before and after I repair them. Now it should be running, assuming there are no internal problems.

You can also connect the GRAY to ground with an LED. Not necessary, but I like to do it ;)

green-white for front panel Power indicator LED , Blue-white for RESET Switch , Orange-white for POWER BUTTON , Red-white for HDD LED . The berg pin header on the motherboard will have these legend printed just beside the connector or due to lack of space slightly away from it .
