Hi, I have quite a few computers around my home and I have one that will fit the spot, but the plug that goes to the motherboard is missing one piece of metal in the connector. Is there a way to match up the power supplies from the other computer on a database or webpage before I blow my computer to bits? I am trying to save the 60 dollars on buying a new one.

thanks in advance :whistling:

Hi, I have quite a few computers around my home and I have one that will fit the spot, but the plug that goes to the motherboard is missing one piece of metal in the connector. Is there a way to match up the power supplies from the other computer on a database or webpage before I blow my computer to bits? I am trying to save the 60 dollars on buying a new one.


I am not sure which item you are trying to match – I think you have a Power Supply that may have no wire at Pin 18 – This is a –5 VDC voltage – that is not used anymore –

See attached image – 01_atx_20_pin_power_connector.jpg

Are you matching this supply to the motherboard of the T1840 E-Machine. Below is an E-Machine part replacement page – It would be a starting place – only -

E-Machines-Parts -
http://parts.emachines.com/emachines/

Need to know more details, in order to give proper information – Need to know Model / Part number of the motherboard + Video Card in order to recommend a power supply wattage – There needs to be a physical size match for the case fit & an electrical wattage fit/match to power required. You have physical specifications & Electrical specifications – Size – Fit & Function – are the 3 requirements -

Also keep in mind, if replacing a bad power supply or a bad motherboard – There is a good possibility that both components are bad –

Please Supply more details -
