    I believe that the connectors are self explanatory and idiot proof.

    In other words all the connectors that HAVE to go to a specific place ( i.e. motherboard or floppy drive) will ONLY go where they are supposed to and will only fit one ( correct) way.

    The others are generic and will go where they best route (i.e. fans, drives, etc.).

    The PSU is one of the easiest swaps to make.

    I found this in 10 seconds with Google.

    Perhaps you should leave this to some one else, Abu.
    You may have the power supply, but you seem to lack the power itself.

    if u need a tutorial to install a power supply u need to go to the emergency room to see if u have any brain damage like someone up there said its idiot proof and if u mess up on a power supply then u are far beyond an idiot.

    Abu certainly is a mystery wrapped in an enigma ( and soon to be tangled in extra PS wiring, also), isn't he?

    Open the case and look at the power supply and look at the new one when you get it. Look at each connector and compare them all before you take anything apart. It should be quite self explanatory but if you are unsure how to do it after looking at it them then I recommend that you find someone else to do it for you.

    Boy, I would love to have someone donate a 500 watt power supply to me.
