    Well, the first question is, Is the system working in the first place with those cables unplugged. Because if so, then you are fine, most power supplies have spare cables for adding more hardware to the system. Like more Hard drives, more CD Roms, Backup Tape Systems, a very very many things.

These normally go at the front of the motherboard if you are looking at it where the power supply box cables are at the back. There are litlte pins that these fit onto that will say on the motherboard Hdd led etc... in small writing.

hope this helps

Need to re-attach power button cable, hard drive


The manual for your computer is available from emachines, p.168 shows the info you need (replacing the front I/O panel)

The good news is that you can't harm the computer by connecting the wires wrong and the bad news is they just won't work the way they are supposed too if not connected properly. The LED's must have the correct polarity to work.
In general, if you look real close (as in magnifying glass and flash light) you will see the ID for each set of pins is printed on the motherboard (pwr,rst,HDD,pwr sw,speaker) Just match what it says on the motherboard to what it says on the wires. Don't worry if you get the polarity wrong. If a light doesn't work just swap the two wires. The colored wires should be positve (+), though. The reset (rst) and power switch (pwr sw) wires don't require polarity.
These instructions are for most computers in general, YMMV.

There are may motherboards, but most have writing on them as to what is suppose to plug where. For example, for the power switch, the lettering might be "Pwr" or "Power" or "Pwr sw". The pins are usually together and should fit the plug on the end of the wire.

open up you pc case...mind out for static! dont touch what you dont have to and look for a printed ( normaly white ) motherboard model id..this might be the name of a manufacurer or just a few letters and numbers plus a revision number at the end. armed with these, trot of to google and stab them in. you should see a host of sites, but look for one that is the support site for your board...track down you board on the support/download site and there should be a manual & drivers ect to help you :)

I have an emachines t6520 and the power sw wire, HDD led wire, and the power led wire hve been disconected


On the system board, on the left edge next to the primary IDE connector, there is a 9 pin header.
I usually get a magnify glass and look down on the header . From right to left,you will see PWR led pins closer to the edge of the motherboard.and the Power BTN next to it.(the side of the pins that has 4 pins on it)
Then on the other side, you will see the pins for the HDLED across from the PWR led. Then the Reset pins across the PWR BTN.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Gateway's support site should have a nice diagram for you in your manual--they are also quite helpful if you have trouble locating it.
