Hello, I have a weird compaq motherboard from their workstation called "Compaq Professional Workstation AP550". It is a Dual Slot 1, i840 and 4x RDRAM mobo. It has what looks like(but probably isn't, as you'll see later) an ATX 24 pin connector and a weird 6 pin connector next to it. I've tried starting this motherboard up with a bog standard ATX 24 pin power supply and an 8 pin CPU EPS12V connector with just 6 pins connected. The thing doesn't do anything, no fans spin, it doesn't even go boom when I try to power it up.
My questions are: Does anyone else have this system? Is this a proprietary power supply standard? Do I suck and I didn't get the right pins shorted in order to power it up? If anyone else has this system, would you be so kind as to post a picture with the power connectors so that I may rewire my ATX power supply?
I attached the manual to this workstation.
Thanks in advance.
