Foxconn 760GX K8MC-S

I changed the power supply and put a new one which is 500 watts. I plugged all the cables the same way they were plugged with the old power supply. I then turned on the swith from the power supply the power light came on and the power supply fan and processor fan came on and the motherboard starts to boot up for about three seconds and then it goes off. I turned off the switch from the power supply and turned it on again and it does the same thing. I hit the power switch from the case to see if it comes back on but it doesnt. I unplugged the power switch and turned it on with the power supply switch and it does the same thing it goes on for a few second and then turns off. I cleand the processor fan to make sure is not an overheat situation but it's not that. What can I do to to correct this problem. I have check all the wires, removed the led, hdd, and reset switch and still nothing, what can I do or check that I have'nt done yet ? Thank You for your help.

How can i fix my Gateway sx2110g-uw318 that wont turn on


It could be that the power supply is having problems or that it is just not powerful enough to deal with the new hard drive. The larger a hard drive is, the more power it draws (as a general rule). If you have the original power supply in that computer, then chances are you should swap it out for something much better. Most Gateway and Dell machines I have run into over my career come with power supplies as small as 120 to 150 watts and that is just barely enough to run the machines as they are configured originally. Since power supplies do wear out as time continues, they supply less and less power as they age. Therefore, that 120-watt power supply after a couple of years could be putting out as little as 100 watts. As such, what I would probably do first of all is get a new power supply. Considering that a good 500-watt power supply is only about $30, it is a very inexpensive investment.

Also, something else you might want to consider is whether the computer itself can handle the size of hard drive that you just installed. While you may be able to physically attach the drive to the machine, that does not mean that the machine's BIOS is designed to be able to use it. The only way to figure this out is to get in touch with either the manufacturer of the motherboard inside your machine (usually Asus or Foxconn) or speak with Gateway themselves and find out what they can tell you about what the BIOS can address.

After i turn on my gateway model GT5404, the three fans turn on for 3-5 seconds, then stop spinning and my system does not turn on


Yes. Exactly. You have found the problem.

http://support.gateway.com/s/pc/R/1009371/1009371nv.shtml

Uses an ATX form factor Power Supply. One that is common in a LOT of desktop computers. Readily available.

Gateway Support indicates there are three generic Power Supply makers, for the Power Supply in your computer,
Delta, HiPro, and Bestec. (Same one's for HP too)

Indicates the form factor is uATX/BTX.
Whatever, Gateway.

An ATX Power Supply's case dimensions are approximately -
6 Inches Wide, 5.5 Inches Long, and 3.5 Inches Tall.

Power cabling is also a designator when referring to ATX.
The new Power Supply's on the market, cover ATX power cabling, and more.

This is an example of an economical, yet reliable, Power Supply, that will work,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4465483&CatId=1079

Has all the power cables you will need, plus more. Tie the unused power cables up out of the way. (USE plastic ties)
Concerned it is a 500 Watt unit, and not a 300 Watt unit as came with your computer?

No need to be.
1) A computer ONLY uses the power it needs, and NO more.
If you are surfing the internet, and the computer only needs a 100 Watts, it will ONLY use 100 Watts.

Playing an intensive game, or using an intensive program?
Could use the whole 500 Watts.

2) Will it harm your computer? No.
You could use a 10,000 Watt Power Supply, and it won't harm your computer. (10,000 Watt is an exaggeration)
Why?
Because a computer will ONLY use the power it needs, and NO more.

You can use just about any WATT power supply. The demand of wattage is limited to the use of each item that the computer needs to operate correctly. So you can't blow out your system if you install everything correctly and properly. So you could install a 1Giga Watt with safety. Make sure that the power supply that you get fills the needs of your video card.. Reference the video card box for the proper Power supply..

I am replacing a motherboard with a G31-M7 TE and find that my existing power supply has a 20 pin plug consistant with the old motherboard but the new one has a 24 pin socket. Why is this and do I need to...


New motherboards have a 24-pin power connector. Here is a diagram of both plugs:

pgh_pa_guy_3.jpg

You can see that the two are almost identical. The extra 4 pins on the 24-pin connector provide extra connection points for a few voltages. Newer boards and processors need more current, and the extra pins were added to prevent overloading.

Adapter cables are available to go from your 20-pin power supply plug to the 24-pin motherboard connector. Here's one from TigerDirect, and other vendors have them as well. If you're not making other changes than replacing the motherboard, you shouldn't need more than this adapter.

If you are upgrading your processor along with the motherboard, you should probably replace the power supply too. Older power supplies are often in the 300-watt range, and this is too low for reliable operation with new processors, motherboards and video cards. A new 500 or 600-watt supply is not expensive, and would give you the 24-pin power connection the motherboard needs.

Hope this has helped. Thanks for using Fixya!

I bought a 500 watt power supply


depends on the connector , most newer power supplies have a detachable 4-pin stuck to the side of the 20-pin making it 24. use the whole 24-pin plug if it fits , if you only have a 20 pin connector on the motherbaord, detache the 4-pin from the 24-pin making it 20.

Psu


200 watt max. 19v DC power brick with a 4 pin plug, with two positive and two ground pins. The PSU is unique to the E-bot. I have not been able to find an exact match anywhere. Foxconn no longer sells the PSUs and will not help with tech support in any way. The PSU was originally produced by Fortron Source Power (FSP). When mine went bad, I had to buy a similar looking unit (but with only a 150 watt max rating), then I had to rewire the output cord, because the 4 pin plug had the positives and negatives switched around.

If you need a new power brick for the Ebot, I seriously hope you have the old original unit still. If you do, you can then simply buy any 19V laptop power brick that has acceptable power output (at least 120 watt) and then replace the power output cord with the original one from the Ebot's power supply (some soldering required). It's really the only way to replace the unit.

Upgrading power supply


The next time you get a PSU. Tell them what you have. Apparently you got one that is not compatible with your compaq.The power (500 wattage) will work with your MB.
Get an OEM PSU from Compaq(HP).
