Strange Color Scheme for Power Connectors on Power Supply of...

Q: Strange Color Scheme for Power Connectors on Power Supply of...

Hello guys. Can anyone help me understand the power supply on the HP Envy Phoenix 860-019? The PCIE connector 6 pin connected to the GTX 960 has black and white wires. Shouldn't there be yellow and black wires? Yellow is usually 12 volt and black wires ground. Is the 6 pin connected to my GTX 960 supplying a standard 75 watts of power or something else? I want to install a GTX 1070 but the 6 pin wire colors are not the industry standard color scheme. Also there is a 2 pin power connector with a white and black wire. Usually a 6 pin and a 2 pin can be used together to connect into a 8 pin socket on a GTX 1070. Will my connectors supply the needed power and connect properly because the color scheme on the wires make no sense. Thank you

I have a Dell power supply here that I am reasonably sure is standard ATX except for one wire that is missing on the Dell. My standard ATX supply has all twenty pin slots occupied by a wire. The Dell has one wire missing, white.

I have learned that in Japanese wiring, their system seems to be that black, white and all shades of grey in between tend to be either negative or ground in a DC system.

What's the significance of the missing white wire on the Dell power supply?

Built a PC using a MB MACHSPE MATRIX-P4M800 P4M800 478 motherboard. Worked fine for several weeks and then would not turn on. Replaced 475W power supply and it came on for about 5 minutes and then turned off. Tried another 475W power supply and it comes on for about 3 seconds and turns off. Finally used a very heavy duty 550W power supply and it stays on but seems to slow down occasionally. Ampmeter shows about 1 amp input current with occasional surges to 2 amps. It looks like something is breaking down on the motherboard. Tried disconnecting everything but memory with no change. Any thoughts on further troubleshooting?

Hi there,

I have a problem with my laptop, when I plug the audio output into speakers I get a very loud buzzing sound with large amounts of white noise added. The strange thing is that the buzzing only happens when the laptop is running on mains power, on battery it is fine. It's also fine on headphones as well!

I have tried using different speakers, different power sockets in my house and other peoples, different connecting cables all with no change to the noise. The only thing that seems to affect it is when I use different power settings on the laptop the battery saving power mode is a lot less noisy!

I'm quite into my audio stuff but have never had a problem like this before! Can anybody help me?

The laptop is an HP Pavilion DV6000 which I have owned for around 5 months.

Many Thanks


A:Strange audio buzz when power supply is used

I can't help you other than report that I have the same problem with my HP Pavilion 9540 and that when I talked to the rather incompetent support they said that the problem had been fixed for an other HP laptop by a BIOS update but that there were none available for mine.

Strangely enough the problem comes and goes and I had close to no problems at all in France but the problem has returned now that I'm back in sweden. The problem always goes away if I remove the power cord but isn't always there when the power is plugged in.

I have all the newest updates including Vista SP1 RC1.

Toshiba Satellite L305-5955, Ive taken apart and replaced power jack. Not directly soldered to motherboard. While still apart, and battery out/in, connected power supply and still absolutely no response. Power supply is NOT original, and slightly different specs, i.e original 19v..6.3A

current 19v..3.1A

A:Toshiba Satellite L305-5955 does not respond to power supply, new power jack

Almost certainly the problem is that the current rating is wrong, if the laptop needs
6.3 A of current, it won't function on less (just as you can't use a 3A fuse for a kettle!)
Unfortunately it must be the right current rating, I know, I've been caught that way too!
Maybe you can exchange it?

I picked up this Alienware 5700 off ebay to hopefully refurbish for my son but I'm new at this and still learning and so this thing has me baffled. The laptop is in pristine condition but shows no signs of life. When I plug in the power supply the green light on the power supply goes from solid green to blinking rapidly to the point you can barely see it. To me that would mean a short somewhere right ? If so where ? Has anyone else ever had experience with something like this ? I just don't want to go buying a new battery for a laptop that maybe fried already. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:No power, no lights but green light on power supply blinks rapidly

Remove the laptops battery and try the AC power only. If the green light does the same, it still could only be a bad AC adapter, or at worst, a shorted laptop motherboard

if I read the specifications right on your mobo... it implies that it has the 4 pin PCI-e input(power) but it also has the 8pin ATX power conector. (it may be simply removing a cap that is actually right next to the 4 pin connector, thus making it an 8 pin connector (thats how it was on my mobo)

Try using the 8pin power with your new PSU, see if that works.

I have a Dell 8600 about two years old. When I plug in the AC adapter, it intermittently fades to the battery as though the plug was pulled out (its not) and of course the screen fades in an out when every time it swithces--it does it every 30 to 60 seconds or so. I switched to a different AC adapter (I have a Dell 600M with the same AC adapter)-same thing so I know it is something internally. Any ideas?

It's been a while since I built a system from scratch and have a... errr... simple question

gfx: Sapphire HD3850 512MB Ultimate (passive)

MB: MSI P35 Neo2 FIR

PSU: Seasonic M12II 500W

The motherboard has a power connector for the graphic card next to the slot.

Is there any reason I should connect the power for the card to the power connector on the board instead of directly to the power supply?

First time I have ever seen that feature. I like it. I'm thinking that is a neat/easy way to partially eliminate cable clutter from the PSU. Give it a shot, you can always revert to PSU cable if you wish.

Sorry I don't know the proper terms, but basically the pin inside the jack where the power cord gets plugged into on my laptop was bent so that it's really hard for me to plug in my power cord and have it stay in place. My warranty with best buy has expired, so I need to figure out how to solve this problem on my own. I can't just leave it like this because the cord comes out really easily and I can't continue to work with such a tenuous setup. Anyway, is this just a matter of replacing the entire unit inside my laptop? I know you probably need more information, but I'm not sure what to provide, so please ask any questions. The laptop is a Toshia M-45, about 3-4 years old. Thanks in advance

I have a Sony VGC-RB42G computer. I recently moved my computer, cleaned off all the dust, and when I plugged everything back in, it won't power up. The light on the power supply blinks green, inside the motherboard also has a green light that blinks as well. It has a ticking sound too, but I am not sure if it is coming from the power supply or the motherboard. Any idea what could be wrong.

FYI, I have already unplugged everything from the power supply, pulled out the ram, checked the battery, and put everything back together and still no change. One thing I thought was strange was after I unplugged everything, I pulled the power into the power supply again and this time the green light came on but did not blink. It stayed solid.

Hi, I just bought an HP pavilion e9300 a few week ago. And I am going to upgrade the power supply so that I can get a new graphic card--ATI 4870 which requires at least 500 watt power supply. My current computer is shipped with a 350 watt power supply. I will probably get a 650 watt considering the 70% effeciency of power supply.
However, when I talked to an HP technician, he insisted that I could go for a power supply with no more 450 watt. Because the system I just got has a motherboard which has a max power limit 450 watt. He said if I go beyond that, the motherboard will burn out.
So what shall I do? I really want to get ATI 4870 work well on my computer.
Thx very much.

A:Does power supply with higher power rating really burn motherboard?

The long answer is "No".
Just be sure of the dimensions of the power supply before you order a replacement, as HP uses some pretty strange sizes sometimes, and you want the new one to fit with room to spare.

As you did not mention any message or display on the screen, I would use this tutorial for a step by step diagnostic.  It also helps to remove the side panel, and visually watch the CPU and rear case fan movement(s).  As you press the power button, pay attention to the fans. Also does the Power Supply LED stay ON? Or did it go OUT when you pressed the power button?

I have a generic MB (P-120 CPU ) which I just switched to a different case and power supply. It has an extra "six pin power type connection" in the middle of the board. Only one supply that I have matchs this and the wires are three green and three black. What is the funtion of this connector, it looks from the wire colors to be some form of switch.

Its a case of not wanting to swap out the power suppy from my other unit unless necessary. I have 4 other supplies and none have the extra wire, which is listed as P10.

Many thanks in advance.

Sounds like typical extra +5V lead and can be used for any number of things...(riser cards,backplanes,to drive extra slots, etc.)

So, if the only fix is to get a new PSU? I tried to rollback my GPU driver but it didn't help.

So any ideas?

While installing the new optical drive, you might have inadvertently loosened one or more connectors. Recheck all data and power cables to make sure they are tight, including all those to the motherboard.

A:New power supply, no schematic, looking for power fan plug.

There are basically two voltages available to you: 5V and 12V. Doesn't really matter where you get it from - some pin on the mobo or some wire from the PSU.

From the PSU the yellow wires are 12V and red ones 5V, black is ground. The fan voltages should be written on the fan itself, the black fan wire is ground, red may be 12V or 5V depending on the fan voltage.

Fan headers on the motherboard should be labelled so, check with a voltmeter what pin gives out what.

A:New Build no power-up: case's power supply or MB?

Well, I figured out the problem.
I am planning to re-do the older mini-itx system I have; it has gotten riddled with Trojan software for kids downloading games; it basically has been de-commissioned already.

So, I took the pico-psu power supply from that older computer, and hooked it up to the one I am making. Everything went perfectly.

So, I un-did that, removed the MB from case, disconnected the barrel-power connection from the case, unscrewed and removed the power supply that had been mounted in the case, put the pico-psu power supply back in place (I had to drill the hole for the barrel-connection out to be a little bigger since the pico-psu internal/external connection is threaded and held in place by nut with lock washer), and routed wires to be clear of cpu fan, screwed MB to stand-offs, and closed it all up.

now, everything is great. I like this linkworld case, but the power supply is worthless. I may try to get a few dollars back from the ebay vendor, to make me happy with a case that is less than what I should have gotten, but is working for me; I don't want to wait on returns, etc.

Possibly a static build up, it is possible, Wher are you situated??
What voltage are you on?

What is the make and model of your comp? is it the same as your friends?

is your machine custom built or is it a brand?
Answer a few of them and we will try to narrow it down 4 you..

Mean while if you could get your hands on a spare PSU that would be handy. And remember when dealing with PSU's alway leave them to sischarge for at least 24hrs,

Now, this is one case where I can use "Green" 3.5" drives, but I am also considering banking 500GB 7200RPM or even 5400RPM laptop drives. These will all be on a raid controller, but since they will be in pass-thru mode or RAID 0 mode the controller won't freak over TLER like it would with RAID 5/6 and mark the drives bad. The controller also has more than adequate cache to handle a 5400RPM spindle as OTA HDTV generates little more than 2.5MB per second per channel. Even 4 channels at once is 10MB/s and that should not tap the ability of a 3Ware controller with cache on 5400 RPM RAID 0 or even pass-thru drives.

My question is this - 2 500GB laptop drives burn much less startup and idle current than a single 1TB 3.5" drive. Has anyone tried running multiple laptop drives on a RAID controller, and what sort of luck have you had? What sort of sustained throuput can you obtain?

Electricity is a huge factor here, at 12 cents per KWh. I can recover the marginal cost of 2 500GB laptop drives vs. 1 1TB 3.5 drive.

Case construction and drive cages are not the issue here.

Hey, got quite a problem with my laptop.. It's a Medion Erazer X7813, worked well for ~2 years.
I was doing a graphics card benchmark yesterday and it stopped in the middle of it(monitored temperature, it was at ~80 degrees Celsius when it turned off). No bluescreen or anything just off and I couldnt restart after that(no fans nothing). I thought it might be the power supply, so I tested it, but it was doing 19v when not plugged in, but when I plugged it in and unplugged it again it was at 1v. When testing I unintentionally shorted the power supply and it showed 1v after that just as it did after plugging it in, is it shorting inside the laptop? Could it be the battery or something more serious like the MB? Any ideas are welcome!

It currently has two power connectors running to the mobo (motherboard). One is a 24 pin and one is a 20 pin. I have a billion other connectors comming out of the new PSU that I purchased. They are bother 750w.

Is there any connector that is maybe like 2 molex to a 20 pin or 2 8 pin PCI power connectors to 20 pin or something does anything exist where I can get two power connections?

I got kind of sick of all those ugly power cables inside my case so I'm wrapping them all up in electrical tape for that super-fly ghetto-but-clean look. It's also cheap. But I don't want to have extra cables, and I'm never going to use those AT power connectors, so is it safe for me to just snip them off?

A:AT power connectors

If you are referring to the AT style of power supply, you must have the AT connectors for the mb. They go black leads to black leads when connecting them.

If you are referring to extra molex connectors on a standard ATX type ps, then you could cut them and put on something like a but splice on the exposed wires. What I would do would be to just tie them up and put the loom in an extra bay or something like that. I would not just cut them off because you might need those connectors in the future.

in the power settings there are different options for plugged in and on battery just modify the one you use or create a new one or copy the one you use and change the on battery settings then name it differently and use that one

Trying to see if I can swap a Radeon 5830 for a 5850 but need to know if it uses 6pin connectors or 8pins because the 5850 used 8pins

A:What power connectors does a 5830 use?

Radeon 5830 needs two 6-pin connectors. That's the AMD reference card anways, what make/model are you looking at?

I think Asus uses a 6 pin AND an 8 pin, as an example, so you have to check the makers specs for the individual card.

There are some motherboards that have a power on button directly on the motherboard. I don't suppose you have one of those? There are some BIOS' that can enable the keyboard to power on the PC by pressing any key. I'm using one of them now. Of course, the problem with that is to get the PC started in the first place so you can change the BIOS setting (if it has that setting).

On a stock power supply, is the output for a molex typically the same as for sata?
Would a splitter not reduce the output?

Sorry to make this even longer, but additional info: I booted it up this AM, then shut it down and left plugged in (no battery). I came back 30 mins later, it booted up for about 2 secs and shut off. Cannot get it back up. Unplugged and will try again later.

I have a wierd power scheme problem with my laptop its set on laptop/protable now. I'm running XP pro on the laptop (used to have ME, reformatted and did clean new install of XP). When I open the power options from the control panel I have no Running on batteries dropdown lists. My laptop just beeps twice and then shuts down with no other warning options. In the taskbar when I take the mouse pointer over the ac plug it doesn't show the battery life at all. I have no power meter or alarm tabs in my power options properties. Does anybody know how to get the battery option back? This is odd.

Thanks Bob

Im having problems with my Power Schemes.
No matter what I set it to it always automatically reverts to some default values.
Also, if I set all values to "Never" and save the scheme none of the values are correct if I try to change back to that scheme when it has reverted to default. The scheme I saved now just has the default values.

Can anyone help with this?

A:power scheme setting not holding

Found this on Windows IT Pro Web site that Helped with Comaq's, and Toshiba's

First, I accessed the HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\PowerCfg subkey. I noticed that it had all six default power schemes with no undesired extraneous schemes. It also had a GlobalPowerPolicy subkey but not the ProcessorsPolicies subkey . I decided to export the HKEY_USERS PowerCfg subkey and put it in place of the HKEY_CURRENT_USER PowerCfg subkey because the HKEY_USERS PowerCfg subkey had all six default schemes, one of which is the desired Always On scheme. Here are the steps to make this switch:

1. Export HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\PowerCfg and save it as HKUsersPowerCfg.reg.
2. Open HKUsersPowerCfg.reg in Notepad. Search for all occurrences of [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel and replace them with [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel.
3. Export the existing HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\PowerCfg subkey so that you have a backup if needed.
4. Delete the existing HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\PowerCfg subkey.
5. Import the freshly edited HKUsersPowerCfg.reg subkey.

The user now has all six default power schemes available. Interestingly, the Save As option in the Power Schemes tab now actually works.

In my case I just deleted all the subkeys in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\PowerCfg that were not in HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\PowerCfg. Without rebooting or closing regedit; I right clicked the Power Icon and all 6 of the original power schemes were again listed. I can even save changes and save new schemes.

I had mucked up a Toshiba XP-Pro by trying to figure the problem out, but, thanks to a really old ERDNT back-up, I was able to get a clean copy of the OEM power schemes, replace the HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\PowerCfg with them and delete the entire ...\PowerCfg key everywhere else in the registry, and reboot (twice...Go Figure) and everything works again.

In trying to modify my Power Management Scheme in the Display Properties menus on my trusty old XP SP3 system, I couldn't get changes to stick or a newly-named scheme to get added to the dropdown list.

However, I did manage to delete the default Desktop scheme itself and now I have NO power management scheme at all!

How do I restore my power management capability and get it to accept modifications in timing to shut down the display?

By the way, the system does seem to shut down the display after some inactivity but I can't see the timing any more.

A:Lost Power Management Scheme

I find a boatload of possible fixes/workarounds depending on circumstance.

Many report this issue after installing Service Pack 3.

Things to try:
>Disable Hibernation
>Set power management settings in Safe Mode, then reboot.
>Update Video Drivers--especially among those using OEM versions of ATI and nVidia cards like Dell users. Same with Intel onboard graphics drivers
>Disable Java's QuickStarter program--add on and in msconfig.

Others who use Uninterruptible Power Supplies report conflicts between that UPS driver and Windows power management.

Hello. I recently purchased a APC 500VA UPS. I set the software that came with it to shutdown my machine after being on battery backup power from 3 minutes. I pulled the plug to simulate a power failure to see if the UPS would indeed gracefully shutdown my machine. My PC did switch over to battery power, but the software never shutdown my machine.

I contacted APC and they told me to turn "Hibernate" on and to changed my Power Scheme from "Home" to "Always On." I was wondering if someone could explain the difference in the these power options. I never leave my PC on 24/7, so I don't know if that would make a difference or not.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

A:Power Scheme question? UPS issue.

Always on will never turn off your monitor or hardisks, or standby or hibernate after so much time, they will all stay on. Im not exactly sure what home does, but it will turn some of those off after so much time. Always on doesnt prevent you from hibernating, putting your computer on standby, powering off, or restarting manually.

Hi, I hope this is the right forum to post this to. I need to know if you can set power schemes from a Windows 2000 server to connected computers? I want to set a computer so that no matter who logs on, the computer will always be on and not hibernate. I know you can do this with Windows Server 2003 but haven't been able to find anything for Windows Server 2000. Thank you - TechGirlAZ

Power Scheme-Sleep Mode

I use Vista on my Dell PC and have my power settings set to turn off my monitor in 15 minutes and my PC in 20 minutes (sleep mode). When my PC enters the Sleep mode, it only stays in that mode a short time, usually three or so minutes at the maximum, then it activates and my monitor turns on. Is this normal for this power option? I would expect my PC to stay in the Sleep mode for a longer period of time, at least some of the time.


A:Power Scheme-Sleep Mode

I assume this is a a Desktop system should never have reason to hibernate (or sleep) since battery power is of no consequence. With a Desktop, if you ever intend to be away from your system for any length of time, you should log off and power it down. However, as with any system, the feature can still work and should work fine...just not necessary nor recommended for Desktops. That said, check your internet options settings. Make sure the option "Never dial a connection" is checked. Next, check your scheduled events to see what you have scheduled and at what intervals.

Post back and let us know what you found in your scheduled events and/or if the issue resolved itself.

A:New video card, requires 2 power connectors?

Hi pyro,
pcie 2.0 cards are indeed backwards compatible with pcie v1.0, so your good there. i looked up the psu ELT500AWT and it shows that it comes with 2-6+2 pcie power connectors. these connectors are standardized and will provide 75w each as needed. The enermax unit provides 48A along two 12v rails, and that is sufficient amp rating for the 4890.
happy upgrading!

With the older socket 1366 socket 6 core extreme processors you had to use 2 8-pin ATX powers, is it the same for the socket 2011 cpu's? Just looking at the new gigabyte G1.Assassin 2 motherboards and they only have one 8 pin connector?

A:2x8-pin ATX 12V power connectors for Intel Core i7 3930K

It only have one, eight pin connector. Remember, many of those older socket 1366 motherboards had two processors on them; they are generally server motherboards. Two EPS12V connectors for two processors. The G1.Assassin 2 motherboard only has one processor, so it only has one EPS12V connector.

Appreciate some help.

Have an HP empty case (XT 936 Pavilion) in which would like to place a used mainboard and other components. The used mainboard came with a Compaq Presario 5360. (AMD Athlon 450MHZ)

Installed the Compaq mainboard in the HP case, and everything fit like a glove. The Power/Reset switch connector is one piece with a series of 4 pins and 3 pins respectively.

Well, the darn power switch on the HP case will not turn on the power supply. Tested the power supply, and it works, but if the power switch connector from the HP case is used, it is no-go.

Any ideas of how to get this case to work with the Compaq mainboard? Read about rigging the momentary power switch, but not clear as to how this is done.

Thanks in advance for the help.

A:Front Panel Connectors (Power/Reset)

The pinouts for the one piece connector is probably different from one motherboard to another. It's pretty easy to take the wires out and move them around.

I just got a GeForce 9800GTX+ that has 2 6 pin power connectors on it. the card came with an adapter to put 2 normal plugs into a 6 pin format, which i hooked up, but that only lets me get 1 of the 2 plugs powered. are both plugs necessary, am i losing processing power by not having this hooked up?

if so , im assuming i should just order another adapter?

A:quick videocard question - 6 pin power connectors

Yes they are both necessary. Either your FPS will drop considerably during use or it wont even work at all. I suggest you get a PSU with a 6 pin on it and use the adaptor with it. Im assuming a PSU that old without a 6 pin isn't powerful enough for a 9800GTX. Read the power requirements when choosing a PSU.

I have bought the following video card

EVGA GeForce 8800 GS Superclocked

It comes with a 6-pin to Molex adapter. Thus, my question is that, my PSU branches out with 3 vacant molex power cable, would I just choose any 2 of the 3 cables branching out from the PSU and connect it to the Molex connectors of my video card?

The sales person told me that I should not connected the 2 Molex connectors of my video card to 2 other ones of the same railing from the PSU, is that true?


A:Powering Up Video Cards [Power Connectors]

Really depends on your PSU. If it has low amperage rails, it could be wise to use molexes on different rails, I guess. This is not a professional reply, just an logical assumption. Post the make and model and wattage of your PSU.

I've got two questions concerning power management in windows Vista/7 (if someone can say what are the capabilities of Windows XP in this subject then I would be grateful). First of all: is it possible to prevent users from changing power scheme? And the second one: is it possible to capture events of changing settings of any power scheme? I know there are some events fired when the user changes the whole power scheme but I would also like to get noticed when user changes for example the time after which the monitor gets turned off.

A:How to restrict users from changing power scheme

In start menu type Group Policy, and through results, you should see Group Policy Editor. If not, then press the Windows key + R (or click Run from the same start menu), type gpedit.msc and hit Enter

Browse then to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Power Management.

Gpedit not available though in Home Premium.

Also Turn off Monitor = 15 minutes, Hard disk off = 1 hour
