Question about Gateway E4300 (E43001008508) PC Desktop
Hi, well that connector, is the High Current 12 V DC supply for the CPU, Power Distribution.
Now IF the PSU is shutting down when this plug is inserted, then you MUST have a problem with that Circuit, either the CPU, and/or the Power Conditioning circuitry supporting the CPU.
Often is is the actual CPU itself, has failed and/ or the Vregs, Or The Electrolytic Capacitors, right by the CPU socket.
When this happens, IF it is ONLY the CPU, then a repair can be effected.
If it is the Vregs, and/or the Capacitors, then less so. in that case a new MB would most likely be in order.
I have repaired some Gassed Capacitors and Vregs on the MB's itself, but this depends on price of initial price of the MB, the actual faulty components, and the cost and availability of said components. usually a new MB is in order, as we do not want to put a new CPU into the repaired board and have it destroyed, which can easy happen.
