Uninstall the newly installed Graphics card and boot again. If it boots up normally, then the graphics card must be incompatible with your motherboard or might have some defect with it. Or if the system doesn't boot up even after the new graphics card is uninstalled, then you need to recheck the connectors and make sure everything is connected/inserted properly and fitted. The best way to check connection faulty is, plug-in one after another while you boot the system everytime... you plug in a connector. First connect the power switch and so on..

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

M3A770DE 4 pin


Due to the 'large expanse' of information you posted I can barely contain myself.

1) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, that plugs into the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

Note that this power cable has TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires.

Back in the day there was no additional power cable needed, for the motherboard.
When the Intel Pentium 4 came out, the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable came out also.

Power for the Processor.

More, and more powerful hardware components for the motherboard, (Processor and graphics card), required more power to the motherboard.

The 6-pin PCI Express power cable was brought out,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

This power cable was used to connect directly to a graphics card, and provide power to it.

Note that this power cable has THREE Yellow 12 Volt wires.
It can carry up to 75 Watts of power.

Still wasn't enough power TO the motherboard, and TO the graphics card, with the new hardware component technology being brought out.

The 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable was brought out,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#eps8

Note that this power cable has FOUR Yellow 12 Volt wires.
Is capable of providing up to 150 Watts.

A PCI Express x16 slot is capable of providing 75 Watts.

Note the shape of the sockets in the connector.
Now compare to an 8-pin PCI Express power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress8

DO NOT confuse the 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable, with the 8-pin PCI Express power cable.
They are NOT the same.

The 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable's connector on the motherboard, is at the top left corner of the Processor socket, and close to the outside edge of the motherboard.

(With motherboard installed in computer case)

You can use the motherboard with just a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable.

Look at the LOCK on the side of the 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable's connector.

With that Lock AWAY from you, or on the opposite side of the connector, a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable plugs in on the RIGHT side.

If you have a powerful graphics card installed in your
PCI Express x16 -> slot/S, you had definitely better use a Power Supply that has an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable.

This is a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Misnomered as a 'Molex' power cable.
{ Molex was the first to design and produce this style of power cable CONNECTOR. The name stuck. Kind of like calling an open-end wrench a Crescent wrench }

IF you use an adapter power cable; Use TWO 4-pin standard Peripheral power cables!!
You need those Yellow 12 Volt wires.

What will happen if you do not use two?

1) The PCI Express x16 slot/s will burn.

2) The gold plated contact pins on the PCI Express graphics card, or cards, will burn.

3) If the graphics card, or graphics cards, require a power cable connected to them;
A) The connections on the graphics card for the power cable will burn.

B) The power cable connector will burn.

Other than that the only other 4-pin references on the motherboard, that I can see, is the optical drive's 4-pin audio cable connector on the motherboard, (CD1), and the CPU (Processor) Fan 4-pin connector on the motherboard.

For additional questions, or if the above is not what you seek, post in a Comment.

Mcp61sm-am motherboard manuel needed


Ya know Acer owns Gateway now,

http://support.gateway.com/s//MOTHERBD/Shared/4006233R/4006233Rnv.shtml

A) Power Supply to motherboard cabling;

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ECS-MCP61SM-AM-V-1-0A-SOCKET-AM2-AMD-MOTHERBOARD-uATX-/290606277901

Scroll down to the motherboard top view photo.

Product Views > Hardware Details

1) 24-pin ATX main power cable. (S - Main Power Connector)

This is a general example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

[Note color of connectors does NOT matter ]

Note the Lock on the side of the main power cable's connector, and the matching Tab on the motherboard connector. When properly plugged in, the hooked end of the Lock will be over the Tab, on the motherboard connector.

In the photo of the motherboard shown on the Ebay link, this connector is on the Right side of the motherboard, next to the blue IDE (PATA) connector.

2) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable; (F - Auxiliary 12V ATX Connector)

General example of a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

In the motherboard photo; Small square 4-socket hole connector, to the Bottom/Left corner of the Processor socket.

This power cable's connector also has a Lock, and the motherboard connector has a Tab.

That's all the power cables that go to the motherboard.

B) With 2 SATA headers (Connectors) on the motherboard, and one IDE (PATA) connector, it suggests to me that this motherboard is set up to use a SATA harddrive.

This is a general example of a SATA power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

Note that it has 15 contact pins, and between it, and the SATA data cable connector, it is the larger of the two.
There is a Lock tab on the connector that you depress, to install, or remove the cable.

You can use a SATA optical drive (CD/DVD drive), or an IDE (PATA) optical drive.
An IDE (PATA) optical drive uses a standard 4-pin Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

[ Misnomered as a 'Molex' power cable. Molex was the first to make the power cable's connector. Name stuck, kind of like calling an open-end wrench a Crescent wrench ]

A SATA data cable is used for the SATA harddrive. The connector end that goes to the Harddrive, is usually a 90 degree bent elbow.
The straight end plugs into the motherboard,

General example of a SATA data cable, and it's corresponding connector on the motherboard,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_ports.jpg

Note the L-shape in the inside of the SATA data cable's connector, and the L-shape on the motherboard connector. They line up.
The SATA power cable also has this L-shape.

In Hardware Details click on -> Q - SATA Connectors
The Bottom one, or one closest to the outside edge of the motherboard, is SATA1.

Although it isn't marked on the motherboard, or at least not visible in this photo, SATA 4 is. Look at the top where a SATA 4 connector would be.
The SATA harddrive should be plugged into the SATA1 header.
(Connector)

HOWEVER, the beauty of SATA is that it does NOT matter, which SATA header on the motherboard, you plug the SATA harddrive into.

BIOS will find it.

(Supposed to be SATA harddrive to SATA1, and a SATA optical drive to SATA2)
In the motherboard photo on Ebay, they are Orange in color, and under the blue IDE (PATA) connector.

C) Going from Hardware Details and the Ebay motherboard photo;

B - CPU Fan 1 Connector, is where the Processor fan plugs in.
In the motherboard photo, there are 7 cylindrical Electrolytic Capacitors in a row, to the left of the processor socket.

This connector is located immediately above the top capacitor, near the outside edge of the motherboard. (Brown in color)

E - Floppy Disk Connector, is above the white 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector, and the blue IDE (PATA) connector. It is Yellowish in color. (34 pins)

G - System Fan Connector, is white in color, has 3 contact pins, and is located under the white, square 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable connector. This is where the computer case fan plugs in.

I - PCI Express x16 Connector, is Orange in color, and below the processor socket. It has PCI Express silkscreened on the motherboard immediately below it.
This where a graphics card, and ONLY a graphics card, is installed.

J - PCI Express x1 Connector, is white in color, and immediately below the orange PCI Express x16 connector.
This is NOT used for a graphics card.

Whatever you can use in a PCI slot, except a graphics card, can be used in this slot; -> Provided it is a PCI Express x1 card.
(Ethernet Card, Sound Card, etc)

L - CD-in Connector is where the audio cable from the Main (Primary) optical drive goes to.
Ya got me on this one. I know it's located real close to the Realtek audio chipset, and I think that is to the left of the orange PCI Express x16 slot.

M - Front Audio Connector, is where the front audio (Sound) ports, of the Front Panel connect to.
Green in color, and located under the bottom white long PCI slot, and near the outside edge of the motherboard.

N - Clear CMOS Jumper is self explanatory. It is located under the finned Heatsink, (Looks like a meat tenderizer), of the Southbridge chip.
(Which is located under the Ram Memory slots)

O - USB Connectors are Yellow in color, and located under the finned Heatsink of the Southbridge chip, and towards the outside edge of the motherboard. (Or also located under the Ram Memory slots)

P - Front Panel Connector, is located at the Bottom/Right corner of the motherboard, close to the 'Buzzer'. (Buzzer is used for BIOS Beep Codes) PANEL1

4 pins on the Left side, 5 pins on the Right side.
The pins on the Left side are numbered EVEN.
The pins on the Right side are numbered ODD.

Starting on the Bottom of the Left side going Up;
Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10.

Starting on the Bottom of the Right side going Up;
Pins 1, 3, 5, and 7

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light)
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch. IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is Not Connected. Used by the factory.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED. (Light)
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

More to follow.

My card reader on my computer has stopped working!? ok i took my computer in to my computer teacher to get it fixed, well she put in a second hard drive in and said it should fine. well it does but...


Ah, My Bad, big_dude2010, perfectly understandable about the budget thing. The world is in an economic crisis right now.

As for reattaching the Card Reader cable, can't help you.

OH, I'm just PLAYIN'!


Before we go ANY further:

1) Computer off, and unplugged from power.

Unplug the power cable FROM the surge protector, and NOT plugged into the surge protector, and take it out of the back of the Power Supply.

With the power cable plugged into the surge protector, and unplugging it out of the Power Supply, you could create a voltage spike.

Result can burn out the Power Supply, and may go on to burn out the Processor, Motherboard, Ram Memory, and a graphics card. (IF used)

Many have stated, that they do this all the time. Eventually, they come back to state they fried out their power supply, and/or motherboard, and so on.

2) Computer unplugged from power, computer case open, TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case to relieve your body of Static electricity.

Static can fry out, (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside your computer.
(For this reason also work on a table. If you have a carpet floor, refrain from swinging your feet back, and forth.
If you get up, walk away, then return, TOUCH the metal frame again)

If you already know the above, please disregard.

The Card Reader cable has a white sheath, and is approximately as thick as a No.2 pencil.

It should have 8 wires in it.
Orange, Yellow, Blue, Brown, Red, White, Green, and Black.

It will have a white rectangular connector on one end, that has 10 socket holes. 2 rows of 5 holes.
Only 8 socket holes are used.

The other end of the cable should have a Black connector. It also has 10 socket holes. 2 rows of 5 holes. This connector plugs into the circuit board of the Card Reader.

The White connector end plugs into the motherboard. It plugs into the Front USB 1 header on the motherboard.

(Connector on a motherboard is referred to as a Header)

Orienting the motherboard, so we are both looking at it in the same direction.
Processor to the top. Ram Memory slots to the right.
There are 3 white PCI slots down towards the bottom.

The white PCI slot that is closest to the edge of the motherboard, is PCI3. (PCI 3)

Down below the PCI 3 slot is a blue header. NOT the one you want.
That's for the audio ports in the front of the computer. (Front Panel)

To the right of the blue header, is a white header. This is the one you want. Front USB1. (The Front USB1 header, is below the Right/Bottom corner of the PCI 3 slot)

Note that there are 5 pins going along the top of the Front USB 1 header, and 4 pins going along the bottom.

The missing pin, or blank spot, helps you to orient the white connector of the card reader cable.

The card reader cable's white connector also has a missing socket hole, or blank spot.

There is No slot on the header for the motherboard, and No locating lug on the Card Reader cable's, white connector.

Line the card reader cable connector's blank spot, up with the blank spot on the Front USB1 header.

This is HP Support, and the Motherboard Specifications page, for the Compaq Presario SR1303WM Desktop PC,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00069442&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=447312

Scroll down the page about halfway, and you'll see an illustration of your motherboard.

(To enlarge it for better viewing, you can right-click right on it, then in the drop down menu, left-click on - Save As
Put this in your My Pictures folder.

Then go to My Pictures, and double-click on the illustration of the motherboard.
Now go below in the window, and click on the + sign to Zoom In.
Use the bottom, and side bar, to move it around to the view you want)

Below the illustration is an actual photograph of the motherboard, with no hardware components installed.

The Black connector that goes to the circuit board of the Card Reader, plugs in like this.

There are four wires across the top. There are five wires across the bottom.

Looking INSIDE your computer, TOWARDS the Card Reader circuit board, the four wires go on top, when plugged in. (Not shouting)

Again, looking at the back of the Card Reader, the color code of the wires on the top, going from Left to Right, are:
Thin Black wire, Green, White, and Red.

Wires going along the bottom, starting from Left going Right,
Thick Black wire, Brown, Blue, Yellow, and Orange
