I'm upgrading the Power Supply in my Hp Compaq 8200 Elite Microtower MT PC.
The motherboard /PSU uses an archaic connector, which looks like a 6-pin inline aux connector (http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b225/r4ch3t/Aux-connector-148x200.gif). But it's only connected with 4 wires (red/white, white, green, purple, -, -)
In order to upgrade the PSU i need to figure out how to connect it to the new motherboard, but I can't find any information or data sheet for the motherboard or the PSU.
PART NUMBER: 611483-001
SPARE NUMBER: 613764-001
Where can I find more information about the motherboard/PSU?
What is the connector? Is it standardized in any way?
What is the needed voltages/ground combo for the pins?

In order to upgrade my graphics card I had to replace:
- The PSU (because the included one was underpowered and non-standard)
- The Motherboard (because the included one had non-standard pinouts)
- The Chassis (because of a non-standard motherboard format)
I thought that this kind of brazen disregard of standard was a thing of the past, despite HP's bad track record.
Be sure to stay away from HP Compaq's proprietary, non-standard, unrepairable and undocumented hardware if you can.
