How do I power an expansion card when the HP Pavilion TG01-0160xt has no loose power cables for it.

Basically, you would have to get a Y-adapter cable that splits a power cable into two connectors.


Since there are many different kinds of power connectors in a PC, we can not possibly tell you which adapter cable to buy.


You will have to look at the expansion card, see what kind of connector it needs and do an online search for such an adapter.


If it is not a standard power jack, then you would need two adapters, the Y-adapter for the power cable from the PSU, and an adapter to change one of those plugs into the plug needed for the expansion card.
