I have a 3 yr. old E-Machine T3410. I removed apart all the components for cleaning. I thought I paid close enough attention to all of the connections to put everything back together. I thought wrong! There are 3 independant 2 pin plugs that connect to the front panel. One for the start/stop (I got that one right), the other 2 are for the LED's. Everything works fine, I would just like to have everything working...Including the lights.
Can anyone tell me where I can go to get a connection diagram, picture...Something that can show me the connections. I checked the e-machine site, and in their motherboard repl. info, it only says "pay attention to the connections"! If I had done that as well as I though I had, I wouldn't be asking for this help and info.
Any help and/or info will be greatly appreciated.

Re: E-Machine Mother Board Connections
Find the company, and name of the board, and look that up. Computer manufacturers could use any number of different boards. You need the specific manual to that board. The manual should explain where the connections go. Sounds like you have the LED HD and POWER ON LED disconnected.

Look at the mother board. The battery is round, flat and about 3/4 of an inch, contained in a plastic holder with tabs on the top side of th board. It probably is a CR-2032. This is the battery. Take the old and and replace with the new.
Well.. This one is a little wierd.. Have you made sure that all the connections from the power supply, and all the connections from and to any peripherals (HDD/CD ROM/etc...) are connected properly, and that all components are seated correctly in thier spots?
Sounds like something is not connected or loose...
also, putting back the old ram and the old battery (at the same time), is the issue the same?
many things could lead to yr problems. from viruses to hardware problems like ram, hard drives, mother board even missing files in windows dir could even cause inproper shut down.
so yu troubleshoot first by bringing out the mother board check for swollen capacitors then possible change the power pack with a diff one and trhen monitor the behaviour again.
my goodness.. you have spent a lot in your computer i think.. i dont think changing mother board and installing a new vedio card will solve this problem. as u have said that u have installed a new card make sure that you are giving the connections of your monitor to the gforce card and not to the mother board again.
if connection for monitor is going for gforce properly your RAM is the problem. as per your configuration its single 512mb ram. i would advice you to go and get another DDR RAM(same 512 prefrably) from any of your friend and put it in you mother board in by removing the normal RAM you had. this will work for sure i think. if this is not working dont rate me in-approtiate. i just triend my best. sorry and tahnks.. good luck
