Question about EliteGroup K8M800-M2 Motherboard
My PC failed to boot, the power led had lit. I held in the on/off switch for the appropiate time for it to shut down the PC. I switched on again and the 5 amp fuse in the power lead plug blew. There was a burning smell which I think came from the Power Supply Unit. I have changed the power supply but the replacement does nothing, I have checked the unit by shorting out the power on pins and the PSU fan comes on.
What my query is................is that the old PSU is a 20 pin ATX and the replacement is a 20/24 Pin ATX. Am I correct in assuming that I can just leave the extra 4 pins (these are on a small additional connector alongside the 20 Pin Connector) hanging and that the pin outs on the 20/24 way connector are compatable with the 20 way connector. Many thanks, Jim
You need to connect both 20-pin and 4-pin connector to *********** board. Your 4-pin connector is located between your CPU and a I/O connectors.
If you did it right first time, check if you have anything shorted on your board because your old P/S could go bad for reason.
