Question about Intel Motherboard
Hi there mike you gave me a solution about my connections problems.when you say bend the 2 prongs do you mean the one inside and the one on the lead aswell.

Think of things is this manner. You have a cable power cord that you plug into a wall outlet. You don't want to leave it plugged into the wall so you unplug it when your finished. Over time the power cord no longer fits tightly in the wall socket. So if you bend the power cable's prongs just a little bit (away from each other) the power cord has a tighter fit when plugged into the wall socket.
