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.

Connecting power supply to motherboard

Hi There

This guide was developed to instruct readers on the proper procedures for installing a power supply unit (PSU) into a desktop computer case. It includes step-by-step instructions with photographs for the physical installation of the PSU into a computer case.
IMPORTANT: Many name brand manufacturer PCs use specially designed power supplies that have been built specifically for their systems. As a result, it is generally not possible to buy a replacement power supply and install it into these systems. If your power supply is having problems, you will likely need to contact the manufacturer for repairs.
CAUTION: All power supplies contain various capacitors inside of them that retain power even after the power supply had all power turned off. Never open up or insert any metal objects into the vents of the power supply as you can risk electrical shock.
To start with installing a power supply, it is necessary to open up the case. The method for opening the case will vary depending upon its design. Most new cases use either a panel or door while older systems require the whole cover be removed. Be sure to remove any screws fastening the cover to the case and set them aside.
Align the new PSU into place in the case so that the 4 mounting holes align properly. Make sure that any air intake fan on the power supply that resides in the case is facing towards the center of the case and not towards the case cover.
Now comes one of the most difficult portions of the power supply installation. The power supply needs to be held in place while it is fastened to the case with screws. If the case has a shelf ledge that the power supply sits on, it will be easier to balance.
Make sure that the voltage switch on the back of the power supply is set to the proper voltage level for your country. North America and Japan use 110/115v, while Europe and many other countriesuse 220/230v. In most cases the switch will come preset to the voltage settings for your region.
If the computer already has the motherboard installed into it, the power leads from the power supply need to be plugged in. Most modern motherboard use the large ATX power connector that gets plugged into the socket on the motherboard. Some motherboards require an additional amount of power through a 4-pin ATX12V connector. Plug this in if required.
A number of items reside within a computer case that require power from the power supply. The most common device is the various hard drives and CD/DVD drives. Typically these use the 4-pin molex style connector. Locate the appropriate sized power leads and plug them into any devices that require power.
At this point all of the installation and wiring should be completed with the power supply. Replace the computer cover or panel to the case. Fasten the cover or panel with the screws that were previously removed to open the case.

I have a compaq presario pc. Motherboard is Asus P5LP-LE : Lithium UL8E. I have 3 Gig of RAM installed, a 400w PSU. I have just purchased a new graphics card - Radeon HD5570. My MoBo has 1 PCI-E x16 and 3...


I think you have not connected power connector to your Radeon HD5570 .
This graphics card have 6pin power connector .
You need a 6pin power connector cable that comes with the graphics card box.

1.First connect your 6pin power connector to Graphics card.
2. Then connect other part of the cable to PSU.

Hope it will work for you.

Thanks for using FixYa.

2pin male connector of the motherboard (261671-001) purpose?

the switching power supplies are fun, by 2 pin plug is that from the AC side or computer side?

from AC side its easy enought to go buy another plug thought it should have come with one.

i cant remember any 2 pin plugs on the computer side and i have taken quite a few of these apart. there is a four pin plug...

wire colors,
yellow 12 volt
black ground
red 5 volt,

if the old supply was any of those colors you can desolder from the old supply and re solder it onto the new supply. if it was another color then i would suspect a random signal wire or cutout, keep you from frying yourself with the case open... try plugging up the new supply and turning on the computer if it runs why worry about it?

Unable to power up System

Will the desktop even post? I would remove each component, one at a time, and try powering the pc up each time - i've seen issues w/ a processor/mobo being incompatible, causing the pc to not power up - also have seen issues where the power supply isn't strong enough to power the system...especially w/ the coolmaster cases. Do you have a 1000w supply to try to swap in the machine?

So, first pull the memory - try to get it to post - then h/d, etc.

Good luck - hope this helps!

Newly built system will not power up!

It seems like you have bad MOBO. I recently ordered all the stuff to build 2 new systems. Built the first one, no power, just like yours. Moved everything to the 2nd MOBO, everything worked. I did a RMA on the DOA MOBO. Got the new one and it fired right up. Sometimes you just get bad stuff.

If it doesnt switch on make sure all the power supply connectors are connected to the motherboard.
Make sure the power switch lead is connected correctly to the power on pins on the board too.
Make sure the CPU fan is connected to the Fan connector on the motherboard to see if the fan spins or not.
Try a more powerfull power supply 400w or higher.

Two sets of power leads to motherboard from pwr pk, 1 x 20 pin and a 4 pin, when the 4 pin isn't attached to the 8s651mp-rz motherboard the fans spin, the mother board light comes on, but then does...

The 4 pin connector is required as it provides the power for the CPU to run. if nothing is happening with the 4 pin connector plugged in then there is a problem. You need to make sure that you Power Supply can supply enough power for what you are connecting to it (400W would be the bare minimum with no high end video card, 500W would be recommended). You also need to make sure that the Power Supply is connected properly because some Power Supplies from pre-built systems from companies like Dell are wired differently than the standard power supplies. The only other likely problem is that there is a short on the motherboard either from the mounting of the motherboard in the case or from something on the motherboard being bad. Make sure there is no metal touching the motherboard except at the holes used for mounting.

ATX Power Supply Question

Most new power supplies have a twenty pin Molex connector and a 4 pin Molex connector. If you look closely at the connectors you will see that they go together a certain way. It can be very hard to tell. Take a close look at the shapes of each terminal. Match them up exactly.
