Here is a picture of the "power wires" I'm talking
about: (the red and black wires)

I don't know if they really are "power" connections,
but I do know that if I unplug this and try to power
on the Newt, it will fail. In what capacity? I dont' just...doesnt'!
I found that mine had pulled out part way and was
making an intermittant power cycling problem. I pushed
it in as far as it could go and dabbed a little
hot-melt glue on it.
And just for good measure, I dabbed all the connectors
on my MB with the glue as well.
