I've got a 2 year old HP pavillion p6200z ... I bought a new video card which requires a new power supply (card paperwork says 450 watt minimum, the stock p.s. maxes out at 250 watts).
I am fairly ignorant about power supplies, thought they were all pretty much the same, bought a Corsair CX600. Much to my chagrin, discovered that it does NOT have the appropriate wiring/connectors to power up the mobo.
The original PS has a 20 pin main which connects at one end of the mobo, and an additional 4 pin connecting over by the cpu. The Corsair I got does NOT have that 4 pin line, it has a 20+4 pin main ... the '+4' end snaps off but won't reach across the board to the 4-pin recepticle, and the round/square pin blocks are in the wrong order anyways.
How do I go about finding a new power supply with correct wiring/connectors for this mobo?
