Having problems with your Gateway GT5252 PC Desktop ?

My Gateway GT5252 won't power up but after unplugging the P2 connector on the motherboard it does power alright. Does anyone know what P2 powers and/or have any suggestions? thanks, PCBob

Answers :

The p2 connector is for monitoring purposes i believe in regards to the powersupply fan, it isnt a requirement to plug in, in this regard but if it boots fine with out the connector then the possibility is there that you might be looking at getting a new powersupply eventually.
