ATX to AT conversion

by Uberduff / January 21, 2004 1:46 PM PST

I am very confused. I have an old ATX power supply. I would like it to become the replacement for a worn out Emachines AT power supply. I can't seem to find the right cable or adapter I need. I did find an ATX to AT converter but it looked like the ATX side was male and I need it to be female. plz help. This plans to be my Linux learning tool

I just double checked and the electrical pins that would be on the cable should be male.

In your first post you wrote:
". I did find an ATX to AT converter but it looked like the ATX side was male and I need it to be female. "

Upon double-checking I find the ATX side of such a cable would indeed have male electrical contacts.

But now you write:
"Anything more? Like where I might find what I need? What the exact name is of what I need?"

This confuses me. Your first post stated you already found it?

What changed?
