Need the pin Config for the Motherboard pwr switch and hdd switch for a Emachine T2672 and pwd led thanks


Pin Configuration = Pinout

The Front plastic panel of the computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard that the cables (Wires) go to, is the Front Panel header.
Front Panel header pinout.

The motherboard used in an eMachines T2672 desktop computer is an FIC AU31 motherboard.
Made by First International Computers (Inc.) for eMachines.

http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socketa/au31.shtml

Orient the motherboard like it is in the photo, so we are both looking at it in the same direction.
{Processor to the top, Ram memory slots to the right, white PCI slots to the bottom. The way it sits in the computer case}

The Front Panel header, is a small black rectangular block that sits horizontally, at the far right bottom corner.

It has two rows of pins.
4 across the top, and 5 across the bottom.

(The small rectangular block above it, is for connecting a Power On LED light that has 3 wires. More on this in a moment)

The pins are numbered.
The pins are numbered Evenly across the top, and Odd across the bottom.

Starting from the Left side going across to the Right, on the Top row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.
There is No Pin 10.

Starting from the Left side going across to the Right, on the Bottom row;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light. (HDD LED)
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire ( + )
(If the LED light is dim when operating, switch the wires around)

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used. (Reset button)

C) Pin 9 is Not Used. (NC. No Connection)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light, IF it is a 2 wire LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
(If the LED light is dim, switch the wires around)

If the Power On LED light has 3 wires:
Use the Power On header above the Front Panel header.
This rectangular block has 3 pins.

Starting from the Left side going to the Right; Pins 1 , 2, and 3.
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire.
Pins 2 and 3 are Ground wires.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Power On button plastic assembly has an ATX power on switch inside it)

This is a link to a free motherboard manual, for the FIC AU31 motherboard. It is in Zipped file form.
(A Zipped file is a compressed file. It is used for one, to send a large file over the internet)

If you do not know how to unzip a file, post in a Comment, and I'll lead you step by step.

http://www.elhvb.com/mboards/OEM/eMachines/manuals/index.html

In the list on the left side, left-click right on the file name - AU31

[ P.S.
The motherboard chipset is an Nvidia Crush 18G + MCP AGP
It is an Nvidia Force 2 chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_chipsets#nForce2

Supports Processors that are AMD, and fit in a Socket A processor socket.
(Socket A is also known as Socket 462)

Supports AMD processors that have either a 200MegaHertz Front Side Bus, or a 266MHz FSB, or a 333MHz FSB.

AMD Athlon XP processors with either a 266MHz FSB, or 333MHz FSB.
From the 1500+ model up to the 2800+ model.

AMD Duron processors with a 200MHz FSB.
From the 800MHz to the 1.3GHz models

(AMD Athlon XP is the top of the line. Then it's Duron, then Sempron.
A Sempron processor has half of the L2 cache that a comparable Athlon XP does)

Ram Memory is DDR Sdram at either 200MHz, or 266MHz, or 333MHz, or 400MHz.
Depends on the Processor used.

(Ram Memory typically operates at half of the frequency rate ('Speed') that the Processor does.
If the processor's FSB is 333MHz, you can use 400MHz DDR Sdram. {PC3200}

Confusing I know.
DDR Sdram is 'double-pumped'. It is actually 200MHz for PC3200.
This is close to half of 333MHz.

Processor has an FSB of 266MHz? Ram memory used will be 266MHz. Remember, it is actually 133MHz for the ram memory. (PC2100)

Need an AMD Athlon processor?
I found this place years ago. Not advertising for them. Just computer geeks sticking together, and sharing information. (I have bought a motherboard from them, and it works fine),

It looks as though my resources were incorrect, as far as the two motherboards having the same processor socket.
(MSI RS480M uses a Socket 754)

What does concern me, is if the motherboard chipset used is the same. This was the stated information.

The motherboard chipset consists of the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.

Chip, and Chipset are slang terms for IC. Integrated Circuit.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

Viewing this motherboard diagram may help explain how the motherboard chipset comes into play,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

[You can also type, one at a time, Northbridge (computing), Southbridge (computing), Comparison of AMD chipsets, in the Wikipedia search bar, to gain more knowledge]

The Northbridge chip determines what Processors can be used.
It also controls high speed graphics technology.
AGP and PCI Express being high speed graphics, not PCI.

Determines what Ram Memory is used, and what Southbridge chip is compatible with it.

Let's go back to basics, and see what Northbridge chip is on your motherboard.
Two ways.
One, it looks as though you may be using a tiny program such as CPU-Z, or Belarc Advisor.

If not, I would advise downloading the free, tiny program CPU-Z from CPUID.com
Can you install the old processor, (AMD Athlon 2.25GHz), and get your computer to work, or are you using it now?

After you have CPU-Z running, left-click on the Mainboard tab, and tell me what it states for Chipset. Also tell me what it states for Southbridge.

Second way.
Physically look at the Northbridge, and Southbridge chip. IF, they are not covered with a heatsink.

The Northbridge chip is usually a large chip, and is located close to the processor socket.
Most configurations are like this; Processor socket at the top of the motherboard, ram memory slots to the right, Northbridge chip below the processor socket.

Motherboard designers put the Southbridge chip all over the place. There is no usual spot.

It is my belief at the moment, that your Northbridge chip will not support dual core processors, such as an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+
Only Single core processors.
Once I know what Northbridge chip you have, we can determine what your CPU support is.
