Hard Drive Plugs and Wires

For a friend that has come across the E-Machine needs assistance in where the 3 unattached plug wires belong. He need's to know the exact location where they should be placed. Can you help with a diagram of the inside board, (blueprint if you would) this would probably be the best bet. He is very smart when it comes to refurbishing such equiptment, only thing missing is the simple whereabouts as to their placement. Any info. I can pass along would be greatful. Thank-You for your time.....

Listen, you can only plug the power supply into the devices you have. ( one HD equals one hookup, one floppy, etc.) Unless you have a device to hookup to EACH plug, don't worry about the extra plugs. I suggest if you don't know this to stay out ouf the inside of your PC...

I'm no expert but power supplies have connectors for a typical number of peripherals, some of which you may not need. Extra four wire connectors are normal. As long as all of your drives and devices are connected to the power supply, don't worry about extra unneeded connectors. They all get the same voltages (it goes by wire color).

The case fan plug doesn't need to be plugged in. Unless you wish to have the extra cooling. The case fan will not prevent the computer from operating.

Not sure which plugs go where on the bestec atx300 power supply for gateway computer. remopved the old powere supply, but don't know which plug goes where on the new one.


I'll assume that your old PSU is also an ATX. First, the plug that has a few dozen wires arranged in a rectangle goes into the MB. Your PSU's ATX connector may be split into 2 parts: the AT portion and a square portion with 4 wires. Together, they make an ATX plug. You'll find some tiny plugs with 2-3 wires for your onboard fans. You might find a few slightly larger flat plugs with 4 wires for old floppy drives. The rest should be the regular MOLEX plugs and slim SATA power plugs for your drives.

My 873 n will not turn on


if you are refering to a computer

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem

follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working also it could be a dirty computer clean all of the dust from your computer you could use a vacuum cleaner but whatever you use make absolutely sure there is no moisture gets to anything in your computer and before you touch anything be sure to wear an earth strap hope this helps

I need to find out where the 3 little plugs go that are connected to the power button theres a blue/white black/white red/white plugs comming from it going to the motherboard


Sometime these connectors from the desktop case front panel have labels indentifing what each connector/plug is for. From your description they could be a reset switch or LED indicators for hard disk or power light etc.
If the plugs are not labeled then trace the wires back to the front panel to identify what they are attached to.
When you connect the LED indicators to the motherboard and it does not light up when they suppose to, then turn the plug around 180 degrees.
The LED are polarity sensitive ie they only light up if the + and - leads are connected to the motherboard correctly.

Run a jumper wire between your Green wire on your 20/24 port plug that would hook to the mainboard and one of the black wires in the same plug. I would put a pushbutton or switch in between the Green and a Black on that plug. You may need to put a load on the power supply like an old hard drive or a CDROM. Plug your power supply in and you will notice the fan turning. Use your multimeter to test for different voltages on the connectors. You should get +/- 12, 5, 3 Volts.

I just went into my basement and tested this out and it works great.

Enjoy

No power to 12 volt, Hard drive, or Disk drives.


Retrace your steps there may be a loose wire(s). Have you checked and rechecked your pinouts? maybe one of the wires is backwards. Hate when that happens. It could be bad out of box. Try unhooking everything then one by one rehook your components. Maybe by terrible coinsidence a part fried and is preventing the machine from booting. Make sure your CPU fan is plugged in. I am installing a new motherboard now and those are the pitfalls I keep track of.
