Are there any other power connections on the motherboard?I know to plug it into the obvious power socket on the board, but do I need to add a connection to it to power the processor?
That's a fan connector.here is a small connector that connects to the board that looks like a fan plug right behind the on-board vga port right below the power supply socket. Is that meant to power the processor?
Difficult to say.I have an ATX power supply I tried to use, but the green light doesn't light up on it(it is solid red, which I assume means its either overloaded or defective). I tried the original power supply on it, and only the fan comes on(there used to be a small green light on the mobo showing it 's getting power). None of my drives power up(even with the data cable detached. I just can't figure out if my mobo is shot, the processor bad, or if it just the power supply(best case senario...since I'm replacing it anyway).
Are either of the PSU's known to be good? Can you test them on another system?
You have multiple options. Try looking in the store here. It's a starting point.Could someone post a pic of which ATX power supply I need, and a pic on how it should be connected? Thanks in advance!
