  1. I am making another home server from a 2.4ghz p4 asus mobo from a compaq, and i was wondering if there would be a way i can force the psu to give the motherboard power. Something is wrong with the motherboard, and the connection from the power switch to the motherboard has gone bad somewhere. So is there someway i can make the psu manually give the mobo power to see if it is still somewhat good.

    Or, use the power signal pins on the PSU connector. Shorting (momentarily) the green wire to any of the black wires will tell the PSU to power up.
