Some vary with respect to wire color. You're case's LED's are no different. You must find the common color for ground. Usually ground is the color white but can also be black. Colors like blue, green & red are normally power +. If I understand what you are saying above is, this case uses three pin connectors. The middle pin is not used. So you need to remove the wires to make it a two pin connector. This will leave on empty pin hole, (not used).
It is not uncommon for you to remove the wire out of the case pin connector & relocate the wire making it a two pin connector. To do this (remove the wire from a case connector & replace it to function as a two pin connector). Find a large needle. On one side of the plastic pin connector you'll see a piece of metal. It locks into the pin connector. Press the needle onto the metal & pull the wire at the same time. Pushing on the metal will depress its locking ability & the wire will slide out easily. (If it does not come out easily than you must be pushing at the wrong end of the metal). Look closely, one end will depress.
Arrange the + & - wire next to each other so it will work on you're board as shown in you're manual.

Good Luck!
Kind of tough explaining this.

Hello, please can you help me i have a lenovo thinkcentre m57p 9196 and i am wanting to upgrade my power supply to either 350w or 400w, does anyone know what type of supply would i need for this unit

The best way to get a new switch mode power supply is to remove the existing power supply and take it to the computer shop. You can see the various types of connectors on the existing power supply, just select a 350W or 400W power supply with the same type of power connectors as your existing power supply.

How to replace a computer's power supply

The power supply is one of the most common components to fail inside a desktop computer. If you don't mind turning a screwdriver, you can replace a bad power supply yourself and save on repair costs.

Before purchasing a replacement power supply:

- Make sure to get a power supply that is rated for at least the same wattage as your current power supply.
- Verify that the new power supply has all of the necessary connectors that your current one has. You can either check this visually by looking at the connectors that you have, or by making sure your computer is listed as one of the models that the new power supply is compatible with.
- Make sure the new power supply will fit inside your computer's case. (If the new power supply is compatible with your computer, that won't be a concern.)

To install the new power supply:

- Turn your computer off and unplug it from its power source.
- Unplug all of the cables leading from your computer, including the power cable.
- Open the computer's case. (If you're not sure how to do this, you can probably look it up online. Most computers either have screws in the back that come out, a side panel that slides off, or they open up like a clamshell.)
- Disconnect all of the cables leading from your power supply. Note what component each connector plugs into. You should have connectors for your fan(s), hard drive(s), optical and/or floppy drive(s), motherboard (may be one or two connectors), and the front power switch.
- Unscrew the power supply from the system case and remove it.
- Set the new power supply in the case facing the same way as the old power supply and screw it in.
- Attach all of the connectors. (You may have more connectors than components, but make sure each component that was connected before is connected again now.)
- Close the system case and reattach any screws.
- Plug the power cable into the power supply and then into the wall outlet.
- Reattach all other cables.
- Make sure the power switch on the back of the power supply is on.
- Make sure the voltage switch on the back of the power supply is set to the correct voltage (115 volts in the United States).
- Turn on the computer and verify that it boots up correctly.

HP m7360n and ATI Radeon HD 5450 PCI-E 512MB DDR2, no display. Just bought a 400w Power Supply and 2GB Ram pc2 display when i start it up.

Replacing power supply to hp pavillion a810n and don't know how to connect all the wires. we bought dynex 400 watt power supply.

The secret: all the wires are oriented (you cannot plug the in backward), and your replacement
power supply must have a connector for each of your peripherals.
Even the connector going to the motherboard is oriented.
Make sure everything on this list has a power connector plugged into it, then
power up the desktop system and compute.

1. motherboard
NOTE: everything below in the list resides in a peripheral bay
2. HDD (hard disk drive) (there may be several)
3. FDD (floppy disk drive)

If you run out of connectors, buy a "Y-connector" at your local "Computer Goodies" store.
As you connect these devices try to utilize proper anti-statis techniques - meaning, if you don't have an anti-static strap to clip onto the Pavilion A810N frame, then be sure to ground yourself
by touching the frame with a forearm or something as you make/unmake the power connections,
while at the same time try to avoid touching the (CMOS-based) IC chips or PC board surfaces.
External drives (incl tape drives) get their own power - not from your 400W Dynex.
Your computer monitor will also gets its own power (from a 120VAC 3-prong CEE cord)

Most computer testing facilities will test your current power supply for free. A replacement is very inexpensive to replace. Bestbuy, MicroCenter, small computer shops and buy replacemnent from, Just make sure you have the correct information for your replacement. The model number on the power supply would be your best bet in most cases. Good luck and have a great day. I buy power supplies as low as $15 dollars Generic

Do you have a diagram that would show me step by step how to install the new power suply I bought for my computer.

Their is really no diagram to show you how to hook up your supply.
You only have a hand full of plugin connections.
Your 24 pin connection to the mother board, you may or may not have a 4 pin 12 volt video connector, which has to be connected if on the board., and your fan connections.
Everything else is controled thru the motherboard.

Replacing the powersupply on a Sony VAIO PCV-RS720G desktop

Hi There,

From the looks of things that model will take a standard ATX power supply which would be available from and computer part dealer and ebay etc, get yourself a nice 400w replacement try and get a small form factor one if you can as it will be a tight sqeeze inside the case.

when replacing it you will have to open the case up (get an anti static wristband if you can, and work on a table rather that a carpeted floor) un hook all the connectors the old power supply (one in each drive and there should be 2 in the motherboard) you may have to pull the Dvd rom out slightly to get the new supply in, unscrew the 4 case screws holding the power supply from the back of the case. lift it out then put in the new one, screw it in using the case screws and connect up the internal power cables to the drives motherboard and new graphics card, close the case, plug in and voila

If you get stuck just ask and we will help
