Question about MSI 945GZM3-L Motherboard
I know nothing about PCs, by mistake I unplugged the powe, +plug in etc cables I need to know WERE should it be connected
You cannot get this wrong.. The power plug is a 24 pin connector and it will only fit in one place on the board. You cannot plug it in wrong as it will only slide in the correct way. The 4 pin connector is the +12volt connector, again, you cannot plug this in wrong either. The power connectors to the drives are also 4 pin but they are a flat plug which again, cannot be plugged in the wrong way around. The data cables are very different. IDE cables are a 40 or 80 pin square connector. Each connector may have a key which fits into a socket on the mating connector so again, it will not go in the wrong way. If it does not have this key, then the red stripe on the cable shows pin one and if you look at the mainboard connector, pin one is usually marked on the board.SATA connectors are profiled, that is they are shaped and will only fit the one way. the power connector is a different size (its bigger) then the data connector so you cannot get these plugs wrong either..
