Question about E-Machines W3052 PC Desktop
I had to get a new motherboard and while taking out the old one the wires popped out and now I don't know where to hook up the new connections. please help ASAP. thanks
If you are putting in a new motherboard, the wiring may be different from your old one anyway. It's an easy project wiring up the board, just follow instructions in the manual and you will see the connectors on the wires are labelled HDD LED, POWER etc, so just look in the manual. If no manual find the make of mobo and come back.
