Help wiring hp compaq replaced power supply
I am assuming this is a desktop and not a laptop. On the power supply you have a number of connectors. A 24 pin connector (like a lego block) or a 20 pin (leg block) with a 4 pin (in the pattern shown on a dice) Look at your motherboard and check whether you have any connectors which match these and plug them in. They only go one way round as they are shaped. You will need to plug in the wide white 4 pin connectors to everything else like your CD, your hard drives. The floppy drive has a separate smaller white connector. If you have a sata drive these are usually black and flat. Basically you need to connect some wires to your motherboard and one power cable to each of your devices, hard drive, CD/DVD, floppy drive. It doesnt matter which one you choose. Just one that will fit. If you have a souped up graphics card there may be a 6 pin connector for that either on the board itself or on the graphics card. The 6 pattern is the same as a 6 on a dice also.
