That would be connecting a jumper wire, from the Green wire to ANY Black wire, in the 20 or 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

If this problem is in direct relation to a Dell E210882 motherboard, it uses a 24-pin ATX main power cable,

http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/p/19298234/19565862.aspx#19565862

Example of a 24-pin power cable, and it's respective connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire. (Abbreviated as PS_ON)
ANY Black wire is Ground wire.

With the 24-pin ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard, and the power supply,(Computer), plugged into power, the jumper wire is inserted into the back of the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

Looking at the photo to the far right in the link, shows the ATX main power cable plugged in.
Where the wires go into the connector is the BACK of the connector.

One end of the jumper wire, goes down into the socket hole with the Green wire, RIGHT NEXT TO THE WIRE.
The other end goes down into a socket hole with ANY Black wire in it.

The end of every wire going down into the ATX main power cable connector, has a metal terminal end.
This metal terminal end is pretty far down into the connector, from the backside of the connector.
For this reason the jumper wire MUST go down into the socket hole, far enough to touch the metal terminal end.

The most widely used jumper wire is a paper clip.
The paper clip is straightened out, then bent into a U-shape. Black plastic electrical tape is applied to the center of the U shape.
This taped area is for your fingers.

(One wrap of black plastic electrical tape will insulate you from 600 Volts DC)

The 'legs' of the U-shaped paper clip then go down into the socket holes.

The voltage is 5 Volts DC.
Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.
The voltage is VERY low, but there may be a small spark.
Warning you in advance.

Power supply comes on?
You have a bad Power On switch.

Power supply does Not come on?
You have a bad Power Supply.

For additional questions, or to clarify anything I have stated, please post in a Comment.
Regards,

Which wires do i need to bypass key to start


You'll need the ignition wiring diagram for your specific vehicle. Disconnect the electrical connector for the ignition switch, then you'll need to identify which wires are which. Once you've got that you have to jumper the wire with battery voltage (12v) to the wire for the run position. Once those two have been connected, momentarily jumper the 12v wire to the "start" wire this will cause the vehicle to crank and start up. Once it starts remove that second jumper. Leave the 12v connected to the run wire, remove it to shut it down.

How do I jump start a 2006 audi a6 4.2 quatro s line


place the red lead (positive terminal) from the jumper battery to the positive terminal of the audi battery. connect the negative lead from the jumper battery to the engine of the audi ( select a metal part that the clamp will fit on) Connecting to the negative terminal of the audi battery runs the risk of a power surge that may damage the ECM of the audi. If jumping from another vehicle run the jumper engine at around 2000rpms before trying to start the audi

Try this instead, find the connection where the ignition switch plugs into the wiring harness, just fallow the wires, disconnect the plug, hook up a 12v battery to the bike, find the solinoid and use a heavy gauge jumper wire to jump from the side the pos+ battery cable connects to over to the side the starter connects to. The bike should start fine, DO NOT forget to unhook the jumper wire after its started or it will ruin the starter.jumper wire jumper wwire

I need to jumpstart and cant find the battery...


The battery should be on the right hand side of the car, in the engine compartment, remember when you jump start it to hook up the jumper cables like this; negative jumper cable to negative battery terminal on your car, then positive jumper cable to positive terminal on your car, then, put the other positive jumper cable to the car that's jumper car and last connect the other negative jumper cable to the jumer cars engine block, and that should help you.

Jump start won't work on my 2004 Touareg V6


It all depends on several variables.
  • Were the connections clean? (battery cables and posts
  • Did you have a good connection with the jumper cables? (some battery posts are hard to get at and clamping a jumper cable can be difficult)
  • How long were the jumper cables left on? (weaker batteries will require leaving the jumpers on for a longer period of time (15-30 minutes)
  • Was the other car running? (jumping battery to battery will have the same effect as jumping alternator to battery)
  • Was the car with the dead battery warm or cold? (if the car you're trying to start was hot, it may not be the battery that's at fault
If the car you're trying to start is cold, ensure your battery connections are clean (manually cleaning is better but there are some very good sprays that work pretty well.  Leave the jumpers on for a longer period of time with the other car running.
I hope this solves your problem.  Best of luck.

Leave the jumper connected for about 10 minutes at least to get the battery some charge. If that doesn't work, wait another 10 minutes.

Remember that when you first connect the jumper cable, the good car is charging the battery AND trying to start the car.
