The hard drive and CDROM connect to the large flat four pin cables [there are several.] The floppy[s] connect to the tiny four pin cable that is on the same line as one or more larger four pin cables...

There is no order, just pick them in a way that they all reach without strain.

Hi all. Where can i order/buy a 13 pin cable (system cable) connecting the dvd player to the subwoofer? Samsung ht tx500 home theatre system.

Otherwise, I did find an ebay listing. search for "samsung subwoofer 13-pin" - 1st listing...
It looks correct, but I certainly can't guarantee it will work.

I am wondering if the power connectors have to be in a certain order for them to work or can you plug them in where ever they reach the component you want to hook up?


If you are talking about the cables from the power supply that are made for each component (Hard drive, video car, CD-ROM, etc.) then yes, they can be hooked up any way that fits the setup you have in your case.

The only real discrepancy is that you have to be sure they are coming straight from the power supply. A lot of components do offer a split connection for when connections are limited, though.

Simply put, make sure that the cable you are connecting to something that is important to your computer (Again, hard drive, video card, CD-ROM (not entirely necessary, I guess,) has a solid connection to the power supply.

Hard drives and CD-ROM drives are interchangeable for the most part, though. You just need to watch that you aren't connecting something to a 'dead end' cable where is won't get the power it needs to operate.

As long as it's a straight connection to the power supply though, and the PS has the wattage to handle it, just go for maximum air flow within the case and keep it tidy.

Well here is a way to check your power supply, on your hard drive connector using your volt meter and measuring from ground. this would be using one of two middle connectors it should measure +5 VDC on the red wire and + 12 VDC on the yellow wire. If these voltages are good then we got to see if the power supply is producing the -12VDC voltage. This voltage is ussed by the syustemboard on pin 14 of a 24 pin power supply. I would recommend not having your system board plugged in while measuring these votlages, but the power supply may need a load, I would plug in the cdrom.. Below are a couple of picture to explain this and a link to a website that has this documented.

dfish26_1.jpg The 24 pin main power connector was added in ATX12V 2.0 to provide extra power needed by PCI Express slots. The older 20 pin main power cable only has one 12 volt line. The new 24 pin connector added one line apiece for ground, 3.3, 5, and 12 volts. The extra pins made the auxiliary power cable unnecessary so most ATX12V 2.x power supplies don't have them. The 24 pin connector is polarized so it can only be plugged in pointing in the correct direction.

It sounds like you have a faulty connector - I would return the item under warranty. Otherwise, if it is out of warranty, you will have to source a new motherboard.

Hi

the issue is that you have not connected a 3-4 pin wire from the CD drive directly to the sound card.

You will hear sound if you connect your speakers or head phones to the small plug in front of the cd drive.

You will need a audio cable between CD drive and the Sound card.

here is the cable: http://www.pcpartscollection.com/audcabforcdr1.html

sold on the above page for example, or available locally I'm sure in almost any computer repairer. or www.ebay.com

Show this picture or say that you need a audio cable between CD drive and sound card. they will know what you mean (or should)

You need to connect this wire on the cd drive back, next to the other connectors (it has 4 pins)

it also reads AUDIO

other end goes to the sound card, where there are 4 pins aswell, should say CD in or AUX.

Hmmm.... mainly you have:
-20 or 24-pins connector, that is unique and goes directly to motherboard (powers motherboard and its components)
-4 or 8-pins connector that powers CPU
-the rest would be connectors for ROM (CD/DVD/BlueRay) and HDD devices (there are: molex and sata power conectors)

If you totaly unshure, there is manual:

Dell 8100 Dimension will not find the Hard Drive or CD Rom


If the drives share the same IDE cable, try to replace the cable and make certain it is seated properly on the motherboard. Check for bent pins on either drive and on the motherboard IDE connector. Sometimes pins (especially near either end of the 2 rows of 20 pins) will bend under if they are not lined up with the IDE cable. Also check that nothing changed on the Jumper positions on the drives. They should be set to Master if both drives are single and Master (hard drive) and Slave (CDROM) if they share the same cable.

No sound


It's very likely that you have a factory amplifier in the vehicle that needs to be either turned on or (preferably) bypassed to get sound to the speakers. If your vehicle is a Mustang, it's almost certain that you have a factory amp. If the factory plug includes a long, 8-pin gray plug and a small, square 8-pin plug connected to a round cable, then the amp turn-on wire is at the opposite end of the gray plug from the constant power wire. This needs to be connected to the blue/white wire on the Sony head unit for the factory amp to turn on. Otherwise, if you dig into the radio cavity a little bit, you'll find a black 8-pin connector that looks very similar to the gray connector at the back of the radio. The black connector pins are connected directly to the speakers, bypassing the factory amp.
