Had i stopped and thought about it i should have realized that the power from an optical drive certainly does NOT come from a source on the MOBO. There is always the possibility worst case scenario that it is something associated with whatever MOBO circuitry connected at that end has caused the failure. I spoke to a friend who is very good with computers and he said to remove every wire from the motherboard except the power, which I did, and the CPU fan turned on. I think you might have the wrong idea of what this is. If no luck swap in a known working PSU to test

July 05, I guess the only positive comment i can make at this juncture is that it flushed Patio out of the woodwork and you couldn’t be in better hands. No, there is no other connection either in use or not that will fit that connection. Before posting on our packard bell utow help forum, you must register. Somehow i came to the conclusion obviously misguided that the only item NOT functioning as packard bell utow result of your excellent detective work was one of your optical drives.

That’s what we’re here for Did you miss your activation email? That would really narrow it down to the female end of the removed wires. Make sure it is the same or greater wattage and it has the 4 pin plug What does this wire do and how can I resolve this? I think you might have the wrong idea of what packard bell utow is.

Something went wrong here Another thing you packatd try is to take the connector that goes to your other optical device at the MOBO end and temporarily remove it and try to see if it will run when attached to the packarx point that is currently not being used packard bell utow is possibly defective and see if it works. As far as I packard bell utow see, it does not go into any optical drive. Also just found out, I can only open one of two of my DVD drives. Thanks a lot guys for your help. I then plugged every wire in individually until it wouldn’t turn on.

However remaining the eternal optimist it could simply be the female connector at the wires end that is packard bell utow fault. Packaed one from a friend I have plugged a screen in, and nothing is displayed.
Forum only search News: I have now found the problematic wire as shown in this picture: Does an option exist that another exactly the same wire combination even if it is used currently for something else exists that can pckard temporarily used to resupply the affected terminal on the motherboard that packard bell utow show in the picture? When I came back to it, it was off.

Is it a plug in on the packard bell utow end or is it hardwired to the PSU? I think the optical drive failed to operate because of the faulty power supply as it pcakard not connected to the MBoard except through a data ribbon.
I have been successful in removing the faulty power supplynow just gotta find a packard bell utow supply that will fit. Is it a 4 pin plug? You are new to the forums and we would like to keep you around and get to know you better.
I spoke to packkard friend who is very good with computers and he said to remove every wire from the motherboard except the packard bell utow, which I did, and the CPU fan turned on. That would indicate if the MOBO connection point is working.
I shall post back soon with the status of my findings. Therefore i believed that it was the MOBO connection for that drive.
