Solved!

Two Loose Black Wires

HP Recommended
HP Envy 750-120 (Prod # N0A23AA HABA
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I had to replace a power supply (old one crapped out) and while doing so I apparently accidentally disconnected two small gauge black wires attached to the motherboard.  The two wires have very small connectors attached.  I can not find the connection points on the motherboard. It appears the two wires affect video.  Prior to the two wires getting disconnected, I tested the power supply while outside of the case.  Everything worked perfectly.  I was a happy camper. I then installed the power supply into the case and powered it up.  Everything still worked perfectly. Still a happy camper.  When I began dressing  up the power cables it looks like i accidentally pulled the two small black wires off the motherboard. Now, I'm not a happy camper.   Need assistance as to where the wires are supposed to be connected.  A schematic would be great if one is available or just general directions as to where to look on the motherboard to reconnect the wires would be good as well....

 

Thanks

Hi:

 

Those two small black wires get attached to the wireless network adapter, which lies flat on the motherboard.

 

This is what you need to connect those antenna cables to. 

 

The actual size of this card is approximately 22mm wide x 30mm high x 2.4mm thick

Found it.  Thanks much for the quick response and the assist.  That thing is tiny.  Hard to snap those puppies back on but got them back on there.  Thanks again.  Video flaked out on me right after the two wires came loose.  Thought they had something to do with the video but couldn't imagine why or what for.  Everything working great now.  It's always the stupid little things that git ya.  

 

Thanks again.  Save me a lot of headaches....

You're very welcome.

 

Glad you were able to reconnect the antenna wires to the wifi card again.
