Re: diagram to install new motherboard

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.

Need instructions for replacing and wiring Motherboard

Luckily that is pretty easy with modern motherboards.
1. Remove power and unplug all devices hooked to computer.
2. Open case.
3. Write down the location and orientation of all wires connecting to old motherboard.
4. Disconnect all wires from the case that are plugged into old motherboard.
5. Uncrew the screws holding the motherboard in the case.
6. Carefully remove old motherboard.
7. Install new motherboard and secure it to the case (probably using the same screws as the old MB)
8. Refer to diagram you made earlier to plug in all the wires to the proper places in the new motherboard.
9. Check and make sure the new motherboard works before closing the case.
10. If everything is working correctly, close up the case and you are done.

Emachine w3107 wiring diagram

Good luck on finding a wiring diagram. Usually those plugs represent the Power Button, the Hard Drive and the other sometimes represents a reset button. If you remove the cover and sit the computer on it's side, take a flashlight so you can see inside at the motherboard. If you look from where the wires come from on the front they usually stick into little prongs on the side of the motherboard. The motherboard will have little written identifiers such as hdd for the hard drive light, pwr for power or power reset, fan for fan, etc.

Also sometimes if you look on the little piece at the end of the red, white and black wires where it plugs into the motherboard prongs, sometimes it will have writing on it as to which one it is.

I need the wiring diagram for replacing the power supply for a HP Pavilion 515n

You don't need a wiring diagram. Just pay close attention to where things are plugged in while the old power supply is still in the computer once you remove the case. There are only a few connections and some of them will only fit in the correct slot on the motherboard. For example, the main power to the motherboard will be the largest connector, then you will have a connector to the hard drive, the dvd/cd drive, etc. What you could do it take a piece of masking tape and and fine tip marking pen such as a Sharpie and write where that wire is being plugged into the motherboard. Then when you remove it and put the new power supply in, just refer to where the plugins go based on what you marked on the old plugins. There will also be some plugins that go nowhere. They are there for future expansions and upgrades that you might do.

I have a Dell Inspiron 530. Was getting 2 quick beeps on start up and loud fan noise. I replaced the cpu fan but the one I bought did not have the right plug for the motherboard connection. I had to modify...

This model (as well as many other Dell desktops) has a DUAL SPEED CPU fan. If the motherboard detects that the CPU temp is running hot it will increase the speed of the CPU fan to lower the temp of the CPU. You should do a Google search for the correct CPU fan and purchase it and install it back into your computer.

Hi my original problem of black screen turned out

Well... if your target is the motherboard replacement (and nothing else is going wrong except of your motherboard),
you don't need to reinstall the OS again (op hard disk).... if your new motherboard is axactly the same brand/model as the old one, nothing more you need to do, but only the to replace the old motherboard by the new one!!!

I removed the old memory and installed 4 1GB cards and the computer doesn't work? Help.

Adding new memory can be tricky. First the new memory has to be compatible with the motherboard.
By that I mean, you need to know how much memory the motherboard can max out at.Can it take only 2 GB or 4GB etc. And it has to be a match to what memory speed your motherboard can handle. If your motherboard takes DDR than you must put DDR in, if it takes DDR2 than you must put DDR2 in. Look at the old memory, and try to match all the numbers you find on it. Than look up the memory specs for the motherboard to find out how much it can take.
Any computer will not operate corecctly if the memory is the wrong kind, or installed wrong.

It is hard to write how to do something likethis but you should be ok if you just use a little common sense.

Things you will need: Static Wrist band (Optional) and some Thermal CompoundSuch as Artic Silver 3 and your New Mother Board manual. I would also have someQ-Tips and Alcohol on hand

Tools: A Screwdriver set (Non-Magnetized) and a small socket set or nut driverset

If you decide not to use a static wrist band you must always ground yourselfbefore touching any of the electrical components. This can be done by grabbingthe metal portion of your case with one hand and pull the parts with the other.

1. Find a nice flat surface to work on and lay an old towel down.
2. Un-hook all cable from your computer
3. Lay your computer on the towel and pull the covers.
4. Open your new Mother Board and take it out of the static bag. Lay the newMotherboard very close to where you are working. But lay it on top of thestatic bag.
5. Start pulling all your components from the Mother Board IE: Sound Card,Video Card, RAM and any other component that is plugged into it. Now would bethe time to insure that the new Motherboard is compatible with all yourcomponents. Look at the plug styles of you Video Card, Sound Card and RAM toinsure the are the same style.
6. Now I would unplug all the wires from the motherboard except the very smallwires that control your reset button, power and lights. These will be last.
7. Ok once you have unplugged everything but the control wires start taking thescrews out of the Mother Board. When n you get all the screws out slide theboard a little to the right (To get the Plug ports out of the case)
8. Now with the Power, LED and reset wires still hooked up.(This should be the only thing still plugged up) lift up and lay the old motherboar on the upper corner of your case in a fashion that it will sit withoutholding it.
9. Now grasp your new board with the static bag still underit and sit it on the corner across from the old boar. You now need to locatethe pins on the board that the LED, Power and reset wires plug into. If theyare not marked on the board you will need to look this portion up in yourmanual to figure out which pins go to what.
10. I would now (Once you locate what pins do what) Unplugeach wire from the old board one at a time and plug into the new board.
11. When all the wires are on the new board move the old oneout of the way. (Depending on how old your case is you might need to usespacers that usually come with the new motherboard to line up with the plugports on the back of the computer)
12. Now do everything in reverse order.

If your new motherboard did not come with a new Processor youwill need to pull the old one before you install the components back to the newboard.

  1. Take the fan off of the top of the processor on the old board by taking the screws out. Once the screws are out carefully wiggle the fan back and forth until it frees itself from the processor.
  2. Now you should take some alcohol and clean the old silver off the top of the processor. Once its clean you will see a lever on one side of the processor you will need to un-pin and lift upward to free the processor.
  3. Once free carefully lift the processor out of the socket and lower it into the socket on the new mother board. This will only fit one way and don’t force it or you will bend the pins. It should freely drop into the socket as long as your lever is in the upward position. Now you can snap the lever back down to lock it in place.
  4. Take a little more alcohol on a q-tip and clean the top of the processor again to get any oils or dust off. Now apply a small amount of the Thermal Silver to the top of your processor but cover the whole area.
  5. You can re-install your fan and plug it into the motherboard.

I tried to be as descriptive as possible and if you know alittle bit about computers your will be able to replace the motherboard withoutan major problems from this list. Some things in this process are common sceneso just think about what your doing and move slowly. I hope everything goeswell and if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Emachine t2984 - need to diagram to install power & hard drive

There is 2 main cables you have to worry about to feed power to the system. One looks like a big rectangle block with a mess of wires attached. Make sure he is hooked into the system. Then if its an newer unit you will find a plug that has square look to it with just 4 wires attached and should plug in nearby the processor. (only newer units us this) Also if your dealing with the cant turn it on issue make sure to remove all cards off the board like the NIC, Video Card, and Audio Card. I am unsure as to weather or not your system comes with everything onboard or if its stand alone cards. If you still cant power on theres a bigger issue at hand and that maybe that your motherboard has blown.
