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.

With emachine MOBO's you have to make sure you plug in the 20 pin plug from the power supply to the mobo. Also make sure all hard drives, cd/dvd roms, floppy drives, etc are turned on. Make sure the red switch on the PS is set to 115. Make sure the PS is plugged into a known working outlet. Make sure MOBO is properly in place with all grounds/screws in place and nothing metal near or touching board which may short it out.

You can review the E Machines PS replacement guide here for further instruction.

Good Luck,

Jesse

Most computer testing facilities will test your current power supply for free. A replacement is very inexpensive to replace. Bestbuy, MicroCenter, small computer shops and buy replacement from Amazon.com, newegg.com.. Just make sure you have the correct information for your replacement. The model number on the power supply would be your best bet in most cases. Good luck and have a great day. I buy power supplies as low as $15 dollars Generic

Gateway 3310s desk top computer power supply


Hello,

You can replace the pc with the same watt power supply or upgrade to around 420W and still be able to run your system within thermal threshold. The power supply should be a 20-pin ATX power supply.

Good Luck

Power supply for gateway


This power supply has an odd form factor so just "any" power supply won't work.
