Default Need help with Gateway S423

Yeah. I found this PC outside and I want to fix it. It's missing a PSU and a HDD which tells me it might have gotten fried, but anyway... The mobo (4000725) has got a weird plug on it, like 6 pins in a row, near the 20-pin connector. Looks like it's for power. Anybody know anything about this? What kind of PSU would it use? Thanks.

From Gateway support:


The thing labeled H is the part in question. Apparently it's an "auxiliary power connector" but that doesn't tell me much.

This is for extra power. My Dell G1 has that. Any PSU should have that. Just look before you buy. Just because the PSU and HDD is gone, doesn't mean it's fried.

No probs man! I hope it's working.

If it doesn't work, then I pay shipping, so I can get it hung on the wall
