I have searched the forum and have not found an answer for this. I am wanting to know if I need to know what each individual pin is for and its voltage for each power connector? I know I need to know what power a particular device needs and also how many pins (what type) of connector is used but the book I am studying from has charts that list what each pin is on the 24-pin main power connector and every other power connector. It seems to me that if I was a PC tech I would not be diagnosing which pin is bad out of the 24-pins. Seems if one pin is bad and that power connector is not functioning that I either replace the power connector or replace the power supply. Thanks for any help you may give on this subject.

I understand I want to know all that I can. I don't want to just pass the test but hopefully get 100%, but some of the information in the book just seems to be completely useless. The question I posted is a perfect example, it is not relevant on the test or in the real world. I have never heard of someone replacing a single pin in a connector to fix a problem. Thanks for the response so now I can focus on the important stuff and not waste valuable time memorizing useless facts.

After many practice exams, I don't think you need to know what each individual pin is for.

Off hand the only pin you might want to know is which one is pin one.
