Have purchased an Antec EA-500 p/s to install, have made all connections but one, The Gway motherboard has a unique connector and Antec p/s has no modular connector to fit, I have old OEM p/s and can change out mod connectors but I need to know what is required on the flat verticle pin plug on the motherboard it is next to the ribbon connectors on the motherboard, white in color and has these flat pins in a row, 6 of them.
Hate gateway.....Had a time keeping this computer running, Now I need to get it back up and running and I need help,BAD. Any assistance will help identifing this modular connection and what voltage is required....Thanks

Gateway may have a unique non standard pinout for its P/S. I would match up the colors in sequence on the new PS and see if the old harness had the 6 pin connector and graft them into the new harness. The colors are standard for voltage.

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

It is best you replace this power supply.

Trying to install antec 350w power source to gateway (2001) computer. Cannot figure out where p5 connector attatches.


I would guess that it's hanging out around the processor area. It looks almost identical to what the PS side does. It would just be the female end.

Antec sp-500 power up?


Hi oldgunny, I think you would be better to shoot it befor opening it. The only serviceable part inside is a fuse and if this was blown then it would not start at all, so regretable as it may be you will need to replace it.
