24 Volt connector wont fully connect to Motherboard

  1. Hi,
    So I have noticed my pc would shut off randomly and its because the 24 volt connector wasn't in all the way so when the pc would move slightly the connector would disconnect itself. When I go to push the 24 volt in all the way it wont clip onto the clip on the motherboard. It will stay in but it wont fully go in and I can easily just pull it out or it will just fall out from movement. Any ideas how to fix this?

    the slots are designed so that the power connector will slide into the slot to form like a 'lock and key'. to remove it.
    see to it that the power connector is inserted in the right direction as shown in the pics (towards the side):

    Ya I am connecting it the right way, when I said earlier how the clip wont clip onto the motherboard that's what I was talking about the clip on the 24pin wont clip onto that lip that's located on the motherboard, I never hear a click noise or anything and sometimes it feels like its on it tight but eventually it just comes undone. I feel like I would have to put loads of force on it in order for it to maybe clip onto the lip on the motherboard

    Can you take a picture of it and post it here?
    also, do you have a spare psu that you can use?
