You mean the motherboard not BIOS right?

I think you have removed the wires for the start button stop button and front speaker or the usb wires.

Usually the wires have something written on the connection which you can read. The socket pins sometimes have the same code written there. You need to match them together.

If nothing is written, you need to check the motherboard manual. If you dont have it, you need to search for it online by using the model number (which is also written on the motherboard). You'll find a section explaining all the wires and how to connect them.

You might need a good light to be able to read them because they are written is small font.

Good luck :)

Gateway bios password reset


You'll have to open your case to do it.
1) Shut computer down.
2) Unplug computer power cord - IMPORTANT!
3) Wait a minute or so for all power to be dissipated. (Capacitors hold charge for a while even after shutdown.) This is for your safety, and to keep anything from happening to your computer.
4) Open case. The side is usually held on by 2 or 3 screws. Usually Phillips, could be knurled finger type. Open side by sliding back an inch or so. Then pull side away from case.
5) Look for a small plastic piece, about 1/8" x 1/4" looking from top. It should be on 2 of a set of 3 pins on the motherboard. There should be a label on the motherboard saying "reset" or "PW Reset" or "Password" or "bios reset", depending on which version of motherboard you have.
6) Lift the plastic piece up, noting which 2 of the 3 pins it is on first.
7) Put it on the other end of the set of 3 pins, using the middle pin over. (You are changing from one outer pin to the other outer pin.)
8) Put the power cord back in the power supply. Push the start button. Just a second will be plenty long.
9) Remove the power cord, waiting again for all power to dissipate.
10) Put the plastic piece back on the original 2 pins. Put case back together. Put power cord back, and turn on. The bios password will be removed.

Need wiring diagram for placement of the internal cables in Compaq Presario SR5410F


Top view photo of the motherboard, of an MSI MS-7525 motherboard made FOR HP by MSI, for a Compaq Presario SR5410F Desktop PC,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01386897&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=3686678

Also scroll down the page, and click on the + sign to the left of -
Motherboard Layout.

A) 24-pin ATX main power cable:

In the photo, look to the right of the Blue ram memory slots.

The Yellowish/Whitish connector to the right of them, with two columns of 12 socket holes, is where the 24-pin ATX main power cable plugs in.

In the Motherboard Layout it is marked by - ATX1

This is a general example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

Note the middle photo, and the Lock on the side of the power cable's connector. The Lock has a hooked end that goes over a Tab, on the motherboard's connector.

The Lock works like a see-saw on a playground. The top is squeezed in, and this brings the hooked end away from the Tab, in order to remove the power cable.
When assured that the power cable is plugged in tightly, and therefore correctly, the hooked end of the Lock will be over the motherboard connector's Tab.

B) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable:

In the center of the motherboard, under the Processor socket, is the Northbridge chip. (Part of the motherboard chipset)
It is under a finned aluminum Heatsink, that resembles a meat tenderizer's head.

Draw an imaginary line up above it, in-between the Processor socket, and the aluminum finned Heatsink, and go straight LEFT.
See the whitish 4-socket hole square connector?

In the Motherboard Layout it is marked by - JPW1

This is where the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable plugs in. It is power for the Processor. Has the same locking setup as the 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's motherboard connector.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

C) In the Motherboard Layout to the top left corner of ram memory Slot 1, (DIMM1), is where the Processor fan connects.
CPU_FAN1

D) In the Motherboard Layout just below JPW1 is where the computer case fan plugs into. SYS_FAN1

E) In the Motherboard Layout - SATA1 - is where the SATA Harddrive data cable plugs into. (Below ram memory slots)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_ports.jpg

The SATA power cable from the power supply, plugs into the SATA harddrive. Note that the SATA power cable's connector, is longer in length than the SATA data cable's connector.

[SATA power cable has 15-pin. SATA data cable has 7-pins ]

Note that both cable's connectors, have an L-shape on the inside.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

NOTE*
This is what a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable looks like,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

IF, your SATA harddrive has a provision for a SATA power cable, AND a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, ONLY use just the SATA power cable!

Otherwise you will burn up the SATA harddrive. May not happen right away, but I assure you it will happen!

[ A note on SATA.
The beauty of SATA, is that you can plug into ANY SATA connector on the motherboard, and BIOS will see it.

If you plug the Harddrive into SATA 1, or SATA 2, or SATA 3, or SATA 4, connector on the motherboard, IT DOES NOT MATTER.
BIOS will find the Harddrive, or optical drive ]

The Front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

In the Motherboard Layout illustration, the Front Panel header is down at the Bottom/Right corner, and is marked - JFP1.
(Right in the very bottom/right corner is JUSB2. JFP1 is right above it)

JFP1. Junction Front Panel 1.
9-pin header. Black rectangle.
5 pins on the Right side, 4 pins on the Left side.

The pins are numbered EVEN on the LEFT side.
Starting on the BOTTOM going UP;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

The pins are numbered ODD on the RIGHT side.
Starting on the BOTTOM going UP;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED.
(Light Emitting Diode, so it is a light )

Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire. If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

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

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. 5 Volt power, and reserved for the factory to use.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR ON LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I need a wiring diagram for a GM5664


Gateway Support > Gateway GM5664 Desktop PC > Downloads and Support Documents,

http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2734

Click on the Support Documents tab
(Drivers, BIOS, Applications, Patches, Support Documents, etc)

Click on the blue - 1015004R - Support Documents

Click on Product Views in the list.
Click on Inside View

Go back to the main page
Click on Components
Go to the heading - Motherboards

4006254R - ECS MCP61PM-GM
(AM2 processor socket, MicroATX form factor motherboard)

Gateway Support is of no further help to us. Product Views for the motherboard does not work.

ECS motherboards use a 10-pin Front Panel header, if memory serves.
One pin is not used. (Not there. Number 10 pin)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/GATEWAY-GM5664-MCP61PM-GM-MOTHERBOARD-4GB-Ram-AMD-Athlon-II-Dual-Core-3-0GHz-/360423046239?pt=Motherboards&hash=item53eae33c5f

On the above link scroll the page down, until you come to the enlarged photo of the motherboard, with - Click an Image to Enlarge - under it.
Click on the photo view all the way to the right, on the top photos.

The view shows the 4 orange SATA headers on the motherboard.
(The whitish 24-pin ATX main power cable connector, is shown at the front, with the blue IDE 40-pin header behind it)

To the left of the orange SATA headers (4) is the Front Panel header.
Black rectangular connector with 2 rows of pins.
One row has 4 pins, the other row has 5 pins.

[ The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header ]

Finding where number 1 pin is, is the problem.
Next to the number 1 pin, and silk-screened on the motherboard, is the number 1.

Looking at the rectangular connector (Front Panel header) you will note one pin is missing. This is where number 10 pin would be.

On the opposite side, and opposite end, is number 1 pin.

The pins are numbered Odd, 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9, on the same side.
(Or row)
The pins are numbered Even, 2, 4, 6, and 8, on the other side.
(Or row)

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
(HDD LED light)
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.

If the Harddrive activity 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.

C) Pin 9 is Not Connected. N/C. Reserved for the factory

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.

If the Power On LED light is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

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

http://www.fixya.com/support/t614458-hp_mcp61pm_hm_motherboard_diagram

As for the orange SATA headers on the motherboard. The SATA harddrive should plug into the lowest number of SATA header.
It may be labled SATA 0, or SATA 1.

The beauty of SATA however, is that you can plug the harddrive into anyone of those SATA headers. BIOS will find the device. (Harddrive)

If you need guidance in connecting any other cables, such as power cables, or optical drives, etc, post back in a Comment.

Need manual to put wiring back correctly please ta muchly


This is MSI/Support and the download page for the MSI MS-7104 V1.0
Motherboard Manual in Zip file form,
http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=downloadfile&dno=4036&type=manual
Granted, it's not the 2.0 version, but the Front Panel header is the same.

Click on the button with the countries name that is closest to you. I clicked on U.S.
If you don't have your downloads set, to download to your My Documents folder, it will go to your desktop.

Double-click on the file name. You will see the Extraction Wizard come up.

Go up to the top left, and click on Extract All Files.
Now you will see a PDF file on your desktop screen, with the file name under it. Double-click on this PDF file.

After you have opened it, and everything is there, you can go back to the Zip file on your desktop screen, right-click on it, and delete it.
Delete it from your Recycle Bin also, or it will be taking up needless room on your harddrive.

Orient the view of the motherboard, so we are both looking at it the same way.
The processor is at the Top/Middle, and to the very bottom right, is the JFP1 header. (Connector on a motherboard is called a header)
Over to the left of the JFP1 header is the JFP2 header. Looks to be about one inch over from the JFP1 header.

We'll start with the JFP1 header.
The JFP1 header has 4 pins across the Top. Then there is a place for a pin. No pin for where no.5 would be.
The JFP1 header has 5 pins across the Bottom.

The pins across the Top are numbered -> 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10, but there is NO, No.10 pin.

The pins across the Bottom are numbered -> 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power LED light. It doesn't have which pin is the Positive (+) but I suspect it's Pin 2.

Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. Doesn't matter which way they go, it's a switch.

Pins 1 and 3 are for the HDD activity light. I suspect Pin 1 is the Positive (+) connection.

Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch. (If you have a Reset button. If not, don't sweat it)

Pin 9 is not used.

JFP2 header:
The JFP2 header has 4 pins across the Top. They are numbered
2, 4, 6, and 8.

There are 3 pins across the Bottom.
They are numbered 1, 3, and 5. There is no No.7 pin.

Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8 are used for an internal speaker. This speaker would be used to hear any BIOS Beep Codes. I suspect No. 2 pin is the positive (+)

Pins 1, 3, and 5 are used for the Power LED. I suspect what they're indicating, is an LED used to show Turbo Boost. In actuality I'm not sure. If your Power LED has a connector with three socket holes, it goes here. If your Power LED has two socket holes, it goes to the JFP1 header, and to Pins 2 and 4.

I have forgotten my bios password and can't get into my toshiba a135-s2246 laptop


One solution is using a parallel Loopback plug. This is a simple device that plugs into the parallel port of the machine and removes the password when you boot it up.

To make it you will need a 25 pin DB25 plug, take the plug apart and join these pins using some old cable;
Pins: 1-5-10, 2-11, 3-17, 4-12, 6-16, 7-13, 8-14, 9-15, and 18-25

db25m.gif

Plug it into your parallel port and boot up your machine, the password should be removed as soon as it boots.

Note: This will work on majority of older Toshiba's (1995 – 2002) and obviously only ones that have a parallel port.
