They were not coming from the new power supply but they did turn out to be things I didn't need to connect. I took my computer to my daughter's friends tonight. Her husband worked on it and said they were extra connections for features my computer didn't have. I am here, right now, posting from my own computer with my much loved illuminated keyboard. I am so happy!

Thank you. My own keyboard, my bookmarks, my USB for my camera. It's very difficult to type on a keyboard that isn't "yours".

I love wiring and electrical , I eat that chit up ! Kinda like a bomb , ignore the majority of it and cast aside the fact that if you screw up your ...... well you know .
I am one of the very very very few around who will actually diagnose electrical and outboard ignitions systems vrs throwing parts at it . I take great pride and have much invested in electrical equipment .
I did grab 408 one time . talk about a hellashish bite ! Nothing , and I mean nothing compared to some outboard battery charging systems , They have almost killed me , get a hold of one good enough and it WILL NOT LET GO , nothing you can do .

Also the shop jet heaters have one of the baddest ignitors I have ever had the pleasure of grabbing . THEY HURT , not like 120 or 220 or a plug wire hell even a taser is nothing compared to a jet heater .

Shop teacher told us he had a friend way back in the day who would pull the plug wire off a flat head v8 then pull his ______ out and hold next to the plug and watch it arc over ROLMFAO

Yes, I do know what happens when you screw up with electrical. You blow the whole thing up and need to buy a new 'whatever'. I once put a new plug on a vacuum cleaner. I sure didn't like the jolt I got when I plugged it in. And there's the time I plugged in a pump to my fish tank with wet hands. OUCH!! I have a healthy respect for anything electrical.

I have replaced parts in many analyzers at the hospital. I have learned you take out one wire and put the new one in......one at a time. Never take them out all at once.

It just always seems like if it ain't one thing it's a nother around my place. I have a plumbing problem I've been ignoring but I think that's next in line.

Marlinman sent me a text saying he got banned for life because of a pm he sent to a member that he felt was attacking him on the bennet springs thread. I'm a little confused, mods say take your bickering to private message. Has something changed ?

Well, I guess this means no pictures of fish or the warbird for sure now. Dog gone it.

This will not be discussed on the open forum. Take any questions you have to Notdku. But I will say if a PM is harassing and abusive with bad language or accusatory comments, that is not what I meant by "take it to PM's".
