Hi,

Generaly, the little connectors on the printed side will face the bottom of the case. Also, typically, Black is negative, and white/colour is positive (except on the power sw, it doesn't matter). On the motherboard, where the connectors go, there should be some kind of print saying where to plug them in. (IE, POWER SW, would go into PWR, and HDD LED would go into HDLED and POWER LED would go into PWRLED).

It may look different than this, but generally the same kind of layout, as you can see, it shows the positions, as well as positive and negative.

Unfortunetely, I can't seem to find a schematic for the Compaq 277977-001 motherboard. I will try and find one, but I hope this helps you out with what you are trying to do...

Hi,

on the top-right side you can see the power supply connector.
There is also is 4-wire-cable going to the other side, to a connector for the CPU.

Hi, If you use a torch and if necessary a magnifying glass and study your board. The row of pins nearest to the front of the case are where your case switch and LED light cables connect.
On all boards these are marked next to the pair of pins do what.
r/sw= reset switch: pwr= power on switch hdd equals Hard drive LED and so on. You can test this using a small screw driver and bridging out 2 pins at a time, this will not hurt your board as there is only very low voltage in this area. When you plug in the LED cables they have to be on the correct + or - pins, if they do not work just reverse the plug. you can not do any harm.

Need install manual for gl8e motherboard plz


have searched everywhere. I even entered a chat windows with Compaq & asked for a site to download the manual for Compaq Presario SR5015LA Desktop PC which has the motherboard MCP61PM-HM in it. (Nothing). This board was made by
ECS known as EliteGroup. Still nothing. Forms for the most part do not help, only with drivers. Drivers for the board can be found on Compaq's web site.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/prodinfoCategory?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3411762
But the manual will not download. That's what is needed to hook up the front panel pins to you're case. I even looked for other possible boards who's layout was close to the MCP61PM-HM.
Nothing! I did find other Compaq PC's that also had the same board in it but after looking through the manuals, not one actuallys shows where to plug the front panel LED's on to the board. Why? Because Compaq does not support a user changing out their case for another. There is no money in that.
For the most part RobPu, system boards share some things in common. I am posting a picture for you. This pic is upside down for you so try & work with me here. Hook up you're LED's as shown. This should work for you. Pin 1 is you're starting point.
daa3370.jpg This is standard for ECS boards even if it's being sold by Compaq. Like I mentioned, for you it is posted unside down.
Try it, I'm sure it will work for you.

Well a friend of mine bought a replacement motherboard an E310 for his computer and now the it turns on but isnt working. the powerlight is staying amber and not turning green


Make sure The P4 Power connector cable is Plugged into The motherboard (pictured)flooganbarg.jpg

If that is not your problem you should look to make sure there's stand offs holding the motherboard in the case and it's not just screwed in and touching the metal case, this would cause a short and prevent the motherboard from Posting.

You may also want to check if the power button is correctly hooked up to the motherboard.

Micro ATX motherboard ATX case?


Two possible causes - either you have installed it badly and it shorts to the case (take it out of the case and try it there) or not all the necessary cables were connected (check especially the power cables and the power button).

Hi peju90,

If you've gutted out the old dell computer, then your only talking about a empty case. Put all the right chips and cpu's that the Asus board requires, and you should have no problem with the CD rom or any other hardware. Except if you try and put the hard disk from the dell, it will not have the same configurations, and probably be a bit crazy. But, reformat the drive to it's new board, and your home free.

The power connections will be the same as it was on the old Presario, if you have the old power supply then nothing changes on that. You'll need to hook up the front connectors for USB and Hard drive lights, reset etc, but that would be the ugliest senario. Meaning the csse fit a special connector that the board doesn't carry. In that case you to option, either cut the special connectors and replace them with the ones from the old Presario case, or don't connect them, all but the power, you're gonna need that hooked up, one way or the other.

But, that's as tough as it gets my friend. A case is a case is a case.

Good Luck

I am moving the motherboard to another case that ATX and AT motherboard compatible; but, I need to know how to hook-up the cases front light, sound, external USB, power switch and indicator light etc.,...


Hi there.
Get a strong flashlight and a magnifying glass (if you have one). On the motherboard look for the front panel, it should be marked PWR and coloured green, also the plug that connects to it should be marked PWR_SW. On some boards there are no colours but the markings are the same, so take a good close look.
Have a look at these pictures for an idea >>>>>>

Dear, friend

When connecting IDE devices in your computer, there are a few rules you need to know about.
First, Master and Slave devices are different for the 80-wire cables and the 40-wire cables.
Inside your computer, you generally have two (2) IDE hard drive controller connections. They look this this 99% of the time:

hello sosumo,
see carefully on the board there might be some sign like:
  • HDD-LED
  • PWR SWTCH
  • SPKR
  • RSET
  • PWR LED
These are the points on your board where you have to connect frontpanel connections.

For more details goto HP website and search manual for your product using your board's model no.

Thanks
