How would I turn this on?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Sorry if in wrong section. I am trying to get my old Pentium 4 Gateway to turn on, but the power switch wont work. I'll run the test switch on the PSU and it runs every thing. I hope I have everything connected right, have no clue about the SLAVE,MASTER, and SYSTEM BD for IDE?

Edit- I will have picture shortly

Hey I'm in Reno too, did you connect the front panel headers correctly, i was trying to figure out why an older computer wasn't turning on and it was just the front panel connector not being plugged in

Are you saying you don't know how to use the slave/master thingy?

For the purposes of just trying to boot a computer, connect the drive that has the OS to the IDE cable an put its jumper to master. If there is another drive, normally you would put its jumper to slave, but don't connect it if you're just trying to boot.

Find those headers

then find the one that says power switch. or p/w. Use a screw driver and touch those two pins together.
