Question about HP Pavilion a810n (PP164AA) PC Desktop
The secret: all the wires are oriented (you cannot plug the in backward), and your replacement
power supply must have a connector for each of your peripherals.
Even the connector going to the motherboard is oriented.
Make sure everything on this list has a power connector plugged into it, then
power up the desktop system and compute.
NOTE: everything below in the list resides in a peripheral bay
2. HDD (hard disk drive) (there may be several)
3. FDD (floppy disk drive)
If you run out of connectors, buy a "Y-connector" at your local "Computer Goodies" store.
As you connect these devices try to utilize proper anti-statis techniques - meaning, if you don't have an anti-static strap to clip onto the Pavilion A810N frame, then be sure to ground yourself
by touching the frame with a forearm or something as you make/unmake the power connections,
while at the same time try to avoid touching the (CMOS-based) IC chips or PC board surfaces.
External drives (incl tape drives) get their own power - not from your 400W Dynex.
Your computer monitor will also gets its own power (from a 120VAC 3-prong CEE cord)

The biggest plug goes on the motherboard, usually it's on the right hand side in the middle.
There's either a 4 pin or 8 pin connector that does on the top left of the processor (the fan that is on the motherboard), there's a small connector that should go to the hard drive and the optical drive. It looks like a rectangle. It shouldn't have any pins and should slide into the right of the sata connections.
