Question about Dell Dimension 8300 PC Desktop
The problem you're running into is that Dell uses proprietary parts,like quite a few manufacturers still do.The board you bought should have come with a manual on a CD or DVD.You can look through the manual and see what the connections are,they're even printed,usually,on the board beside each set of pins.It's very small print.
What you have going for you is that the Dell multi-plug is also labeled as to what wires are for each application.You'll have to cut the plug off and put individual connectors on each wire,then connect them to the corresponding pins.You can get the parts at an electronic supply store,even Radio Shack.
Just be careful,and make sure that if your hands are inside the case,the cord is unplugged.
