Your gues is correct, to have had the amount of heat needed to burn the sockets there is little chance of repair. Replacement is your answer. Regards mistyman

How many power supply connections to the motherboard hp pavilion a 220n


Check your mainboard for power connectors.

The main one is a 20Pin some-times 24pin.
The next area to check is a 4Pin CPU power connector, which is loacted around the CPU socket. Top left of the board.

Take care!

Ok when i press the power button it doesn't a thing! i alredy tryt changing the memory and the fan end everything doesnt work plzzz help me....


Hi, you can download a manual from here:

http://www.albatron.com.tw/English/product/mb/pro_detail.asp?rlink=Manual&no=111

Please unzip the file before you can read it.

My guess is that your power supply has burned.
You can still buy a new ATX power supply
and its not a difficult task to change it out.

It could also be the on/off switch in the cabinet.
Check the wireing for loose connections.

Where is the fuse inside the power supply model fsp200


The unit is only 200watt and the fuse cost about $2,Thats if there one built into it,
The replacement power supply is about $20-00 NZD
Probably 20minutes to fix (for a novice) depending on their skill level and tools available,

BEST ADVICE Replace it

Power is something you dont want to mess with because it can kill.
The power packs are replaceable but people arent.
Be very careful and dont mess with the power.

Hi, good day sir, there are several things you should do first.
1. Disconnect all connections to the motherboard.
2. make sure that your Power Supply 4pin 12volt molex and 24 pin molex connectors are tightly plug.
3. Clean the memory port from any dust, plug the RAM module, make sure also the module connector is clean.
4. Plug in the speaker and power switch.
5. Connect a VGA monitor.
6. Reset bios/cmos or simply operate the pc without the battery.
7. Plug the Power Supply to AC mains.
8. test the PC.
9. do this several times if you cant start the PC.
10. if every thing is OK, reconnect your PC and peripherals one at a time.
Hope this helps.keep me inform about your progress. thanks

Need2 know wiring diagram 4 power supply 4 a emachine T2642


Hi there
The power supply should be ATX 20pin connection and also a 4pin connector, look at this picture below so you know you have the power connections in the right places>>ba37bd3.jpg
On the top left of the picture, the big cream 20pin socket is where the 20 pin connector goes.
In the middle to the left you will see another cream 4pin socket is where the 4pin connector goes.
If your power supply does not have the 4pin connector the pc won't boot up, you will have to go out and buy one.
If you have all the connections right and the on/off button is connected to the front panel properly, take out the system memory, clean it with a clean, dry, soft pain brush and also clean the slots too, re-seat the memory and reboot the machine to see if it boots up.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Chieftech HPC-360-102 Power Supply dead


check the size of power supply most are a standard size some from propriety manufacturers are smaller. most are fitted top of case at the back and take up the space across the back about about
6inch wide 4 inch high 6inch deep if yours is this size its standard and most should fit get one that is rated at least 400 to 500 watts
ensure it has at least 6 4pin power sockets floppy power socket and the same motherboard sockets as your old one
