Exuse me but i am a bit of a hardware novice at this kind of thing! Basically i have the following machine: http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF06a/12454-124...

If you look at those specs you should be able to locate the MotherBoard i own, basically in it i dont see any white 24/20pin connector for my new PSU to go into? The current PSU goes like to some other connectors and then weirdly the motherboard connects to the hard drive and stuff instead of the PSU doing it?

I need to install my new PSU but i just cant seem to find how? Can you please click the link and give me some info on how this MoBo works?????

Can you take a picture of your mainboard? You should have a 20/24 pin and atleast one 4 pin power connector. Look closely at your mainboard as not all board have the connector white I have seen a few that where black or grey.

It could also be that HP is using a custom board and you will need to get a PSU from them to work.

I'm nearly sure the motherboard isn't listed there as a model, it's most likely a custom board made by hp to fit in such a small case, though I might be wrong.

That configuration of wires sounds very specific to your pc, you're probably best off posting pictures of how the wires look.

Your PC has a proprietary motherboard that doesn't use the standard 20/24 pin connector. You will have to buy a replacement power supply from HP. Take a look at this illustrated manual:

You can buy the replacement power supply directly from HP, but it's spendy:

There is also a video on removing the power supply that shows the minimal number of connectors:

You may be able to find those parts elsewhere from other online retailers for less money.

Hope that helps.

And that's one of the many disadvantages of HP PC.

Why you do like that HP??!!

This is just one of many ways OEMs have of "capturing" computer buyers. My advice is to stop throwing good money after bad and build yourself a real computer. You already have a PSU.

Yupe, your motherboard doesn't have any 20/24 pins. Guess you have to buy a replacement from HP or worse, you have to change your motherboard.

Yes that would be possible and most likely you best option. You will want to make sure that you are getting a mainboard that has the same socket that you CPU is using. I am not up on intel as I have not used them for quite some time so some one else might be able to help you with that. Newegg as few low cost mid tower cases that are fairly good.

Good luck and if you go for that option just make sure on the socket size for you CPU and of course come back if you need help and let us know how it goes.
