Agree with StephanSA, and would like to add if I may.

It 'sounds', (Looks), as though you are trying to provide remote assistance to someone in Europe.

IF, this is in reference to an HP Pavilion P6370t desktop computer,

1) As stated there is one power cable coming from the Power Supply, to the motherboard to check.
There is another one also.

They have a Lock on the connectors, but due to shipping may have come loose.

A) 24-pin ATX main power cable.

Typical example,

B) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

Photo of the bare motherboard with no power cables plugged in, or hardware attached,

Give the page a few seconds, the motherboard photo will come up.
Look to the right of the board. (Motherboard)

See the whitish connector that has two rows of 12 socket holes?
This is where the 24-pin ATX main power cable, plugs in.

To the left of the Processor socket, is whitish square connector with 4 socket holes.
This is where the 4-pin +12 Volt power cable plugs in.

Also make sure the SATA power cable is plugged in tight, to the SATA harddrive,


Make sure the SATA data cable is plugged in tightly to the SATA harddrive, and into the SATA connector on the motherboard.

On the motherboard there are two SATA data headers, (Connectors) One is Orange, one is Blue.
(Below the Ram Memory slots)

Also you can click on the + sign next to > Motherboard Layout, and view an illustration of the motherboard.

ATX1 is the connector for the 24-pin ATX main power cable.
PWR1 is for the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable.
SATA4 and SATA3 are the SATA connectors (Headers) I referred to.

Also make sure the Processor fan cable is plugged in tightly to the motherboard.

Where it states JFP1, this is the header (Connecting pins) on the motherboard, that the cables, (Wires) from the Front Panel connect to.

The Front Panel is the front plastic part of the computer, that has the Power On button, and etc.

Be sure it is plugged in tightly.
Most of the time it is that the Ram Memory modules, ('Sticks') have become loosened.

Remove all Ram Memory modules, reinstall them.

BEFORE starting!
Computer unplugged from power. Computer on a table, computer case open.
OBSERVE Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out, (Short circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

You may not even see it, or feel it.

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

Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to touch the metal frame again upon your return.
(Unpainted surface)

None of this works? Post back in a Comment, and we'll go further.

My laptop won't work on battery now!!

look at the bottom of the laptop where you install the battery, there's should be what looks like metal contacts where the battery connects to the actual computer. make sure that when you installed the battery you didn't accidentally bend 2 of them so they were touching eachother. you may have created a direct short which is what caused your heat and the smell. try to plug the battery back in and be careful that you don't bend the metal contacts.

E system 1212 Laptop won't switch on. Power

Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.

the original psu is dead toss it. the one you are using is not powerfull enough to run the pc. check the old opne for how many watts. then check the new one. i bet the new one has fewer. so to solve problem get a psu with the same or more watts than the old dead one.

You have a bad power supply. It is not an expensive fix. Remember HP's take HP power supplies. When ordering either look on ebay for your model or order from part supplier.

I can already tell this isn't going to be an easy one. Let's try a few more things.
  1. Unplug the power supply from everything inside the PC. Leave it plugged into the AC cord. On the main motherboard (ATX) power connector, find the pin that goes to the green wire. Use a modified paperclip to short that pin to the next-door pin that should have a black wire. This should cause the power supply to turn on and you should hear its internal fan spin up. If not, this could be a sign the new power supply is also dead.
  2. Plug the power supply into only the motherboard and AC cord. Remove all unnecessary PCI cards and peripherals. Also, if the system has multiple RAM modules, remove all but one. This should leave the power supply, motherboard, video card (if it's not built in), CPU, and RAM as the only items connected. Power up the system and see if anything acts differently.
  3. If there are multiple RAM modules, try every different combination of modules and slots.
  4. I will ask this only because I've done it myself. In the swap between the old and new motherboards, did you verify there were no extra mounting stand-offs that might be touching something on the bottom side of the motherboard? If old and new motherboards are the exact same model, this shouldn't be an issue, but you never know.
  5. Verify there are no jumpers on the new motherboard that might need to be set for the front side bus, memory speed, etc.
  6. Ask your friends, family, and neighbors if anyone has a Pentium 4 in an LGA775 package that you could "borrow" to verify it's not your CPU causing the troubles.
