Recently I attempted to upgrade my stock HP Envy 750. I replaced the power supply with a 500 watt EVGA (silver), so that I could install a graphics card. Everything went well until I noticed that the new power supply did not have a cable that matched one that my old power supply had connected to the optical drive.
I have a few questions questions about what I can do about this:
1. Did I get the wrong power supply for what was needed in my computer?
2. Is possible that my optical drive was only meant to be used with the stock power supply? (this is what I think is the issue)
3. Is there an adapter that I might be able to use to resolve this issue?
4. If nothing comes to mind, is this a problem that should be taken to HP or EVGA? (I already attempted both, but neither had a response that was helpful, so I came here.)
