    Newbie needs help: Please help identify the proper cable.

    I recently acquired this from a family member who got it from a roommate. Needless to say, I don't have any information on this. There is no manufacturer logo, part numbers or anything helping.

    I'm looking for a power cable that I can purchase. The circled power jack is larger than ones that I'm used to seeing.

    I'm not 100% sure this is meant for a car, but I have found similar cases online that were meant for a car.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    what mainboard is inside that case and does the mainboard have a power supply inside that connects to those pins on that 4 pin plug. The reason i ask is some mainboards had s-video out on them that used a 4 pin connector just like that. Open up the case so we can see inside and we might be able to better help you. that case looks modified at some point. Just don't want to see you put power where its not used and roasting a mainboard.. SNO

    I believe the motherboard is: p35-111-1fd9

    On the case it is marked as power and I figured it wasn't S-Video as its diameter was much larger then a s-video.

    I looked on the motherboard and I don't see a power supply at all .... which also confused me.

    The single tray slot is a hole because of me, I took the harddrive out so I could hook it up to my IDE to USB cable for checking. But for the back it does look like the motherboard wasn't original to that case.

    Thanks for your help

    Apparently my post never got saved.

    I believe the motherboard is: p35-111-1fd9

    I figured it wasn't S-Video because the jack is almost twice as large as traditional s-video.

    your first few posts are moderated to make sure your not going to spam the forum with cheap drugs or something. from what i hear, the mod's deal with a lot of it behind the scenes, so it's something that they need to do to make for a better forum.. so depending on how busy they are it can take a little while for your posts to display on the forum.


    did you happen to see any logo's on the board? it almost looks like a asus board to me, but it is still very hard to tell, as the model number you posted doesn't seem to come up with anything..

    Except for the grooves, that 4-pin connector looks like the common (ITT-)Cannon "CB Radio" microphone connector, eg:

    A pdf tech drawing is available here (with thanks to www.batteryspace.com).

    The grooves may not matter.
    It may be a MILitary spec plug...

    After I posted my second post I figured it was do to limiting new accounts that could be spammers.

    As for Logos, I did see one Intel.

    I just took most of it apart and I have a few more numbers from the motherboard.

    socket: mPGA478B
    d1010a6b
    fw82801eb
    lct m94v 0
    li13v37a

    Also, the processor itself didn't have any logs or part numbers on either side.

    Thank you for your help.

    I was thinking that this would be easy as maybe there were more of a standard.

    sorry, i'm not finding anything more to go off of.. i don't believe intel ever made a board colored like that, but i've been wrong in the past...

    would it be possible to get a full image of the motherboard?

    I do see it is using the fw82801eb Intel Chipset.

    Thanks again for all of your help, and I went a little crazy with take photos.

    Hello. Do you still need help with this? I joined this forum because I have a unit like this and have a working power supply. It reads FSP GROUP INC. Model No: FSP150-AAB. 7.9AMPS DC OUT! This tiny computer needs to be kept clean (cpu cooling fins) and cool. It generates a lot of heat. The power supply is in the unit you are missing. It has what I call the non standard AC power cord that plugs into the brick (gets HOT). By non standard I mean that the part that slips into the brick is sort of a triange shaped one over two small holes - for lack of a better description. It is NOT a standard monitor/pc power cord. You need both pieces. Amazon has the -ABB that is 6.25amp. Probably work fine. Otherwise you can loookup the maker here www.fspgroupusa.com. I also have the 3 drivers that you will need to load XP (LAN, AUDIO, VIDEO). If you are loading WIN7/8 you likely will not need any drivers. A solid state PATA interface drive would make this thing pretty cool (literally)! Let me know if I can help. Not sure of rules about email addresses, etc so you tell me easiest way to get you. It is about 35Mb total. I have a Google drive and Dropbox so one of those should be easy enough...
