lyees Posted December 30, 2020 Posted December 30, 2020 (edited) Hi cj and stickandstone, Very much obliged for your help. Firstly, cj, earlier today I say your post checked your PSU link. Sure nuf, you're right. I got the power supply box down from the closet and it shows a picture of the EPS/ATX12 8-4 pin connector. I looked and looked for it, but couldn't find it. My husband tapped me on the shoulder to say he found it while I was talking to my sister in law on the phone. I later checked what he had found and it was on the back side panel of the chassis, hidden away, as it wasn't needed when I first installed the A8NE mobo. Brother. I laughed, but also felt stupid. It was separated into two 4-pin connectors. So, that was that, installed it and the remaining connectors and booted up into the new P6T bios and all is well. This poopy 8500GT video card still works which I have been wanting to upgrade it, but as it still works, it will be a while before I do that. @sticknstone, thanks for the advice. With the A8NE mobo, my husband assumes its the CPU, which is why he ordered another one. Hasn't arrived yet. But I think it's the motherboard. We have two older Dell cases that might or might not fit the A8NE mobo. If not, my husband checked ebay and saw several used cases that are inexpensive. That way he can later order a cheap chassis if he wants to continue trying to revive the old socket 939 mobo. I appreciate both of for helping me, especially since it's been years since I've done this and the brain cells seems to have died in the mean time. It's coming back again after going through this. I really do prefer AMD cpus. I found one comment on Intel CPUs and why they needed the 12V 8-pin connector....."Because they're power suckers".
