Not sure about upgrading power supply

\015 Compaq SR5410F Desktop came with a 250W power supply. I bought a 650W supply. Old supply has 20 pin motherbaord connector. New supply has 20+4 pin motherboard connector. Motherboard has 24 pins (1-20 were used with old power sonnector. HP recommends I dont use the extra 4 (They won't tell me what will happen if I do). Can I use these extra 4 pins?\015

Answers :

First, let me say for the record that I would recommend listening to HP even though it sounds like their just covering their buts. If you choose not to listen to HP, here's a couple of good links to information on the additional 4 pins. It looks like the extra pins are for extra power requirements like dual SLI graphics boards for example.

In many cases the additional 4 pin section slides up and off of the main power plug for use in your particular unit.
