Mobo power connector

  1. Hi, I am tying to sort a PC for a friend. The PSU appears to be fried, so swapped that for a spare one. The spare provides power to the mobo in that the on board LED lights up, AGP powered fan spins up, as does the CPU fan and the case fan. However this is as far as I get, the is no video output. I am wondering if the mobo is fried too. One other thought is that the 20 pin connector on the original PSU contains 20 cables, whereas on newer PSUs there are only 19. Could it be that as the PC was built with a PSU which provided 20 cables into the 20 pin connector that a 20 pin connector fron a newer PSU which only contains 19 cables might not work? Sorry if this is a bit garbled.

    what mobo is it? does it have an additional 4 pin power connector? or an additional 8 pin power connector?

    The more specs you can provide the better.

    No additional connectors, either 4 or 8. I cant find the manufactures name on the board anywhere. Where is it usually located?

    Edit: after a lot of googling it is an ECS Elitegroup L7VTM Rev1.
