Power switch HDD led, Speakers, Power Led connections

Hi, I have a Compaq MOBO Model 06C0h, Intel Pentium 3, Socket 370 FC-PGA. Unfortunately, by mistake I pulled out some cables that I don't know where they go: Power Led, HDD Led, Speakers, Power Switch. I already figure out the Power Switch and the HDD Led. However, I haven't been able to connect the others. Can anybody help me? This is the only pc I have and I use it daily. I am not a pc guru as you may know...but I will learn from this mistake. Xnks.

    I don't have a manual. This MOBO is inside of another case. I have being looking all night for those names on the board. There are only numbers written on the board. I also looked @ my friend's pc and yes, names are on the board, but Compaq does not have it, at least in this MOBO.

    I'm still looking for more options, xnks.

    Compaq board seems to be different from the one shown in the picture.

  • harp4u Nov 15, 2008

    I went to the site, and followed the pics. I still can't figure out the Speakers and Power Led.

    Any other options?

I have looked all over for the manual with no joy, but i did find some usefull information for you to look at, here is the web address:
http://techreport.com/discussions.x/12098

make sure you have a torch handy when you connect the plugs, another bit of advice is that if you look at the connectors, it should say the same as what is says on the motherboard or abreviated

It is impossible to say which cables go where without actually knowing what cables they are. Generally, the connectors are labelled, so you know where each cable goes. But then again, you need to know what each cable is for. By chance, should you plug in the wrong cable somewhere, you could loose your entire motherboard.

My honest advice is to take this to a professional, and get them connect it for you. Will save you a lot of heartache..

All the switches and leds go into the same set of connectors, the connector places are written on the motherboard you need to look at it closely,, or then you can find them also in the user manual.

Hi sir/mam, i have a gigabyte motherboard 7vm333m-rz n now i m presently in tis board AMD processor is running... can i change the processor by pentium 3 instead of AMD.


-> NO

It has a Socket 462 processor socket. (Also known as Socket A,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_A )

This is strictly for AMD processors ONLY, and only for AMD processors that use this processor socket.

An Intel Pentium III processor, that is not a Slot 1 processor, uses a Socket 370,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_370

List of Intel Pentium III Microprocessors,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_III_microprocessors#.22Coppermine.22_.28180_nm.29

Scroll down also.

{ If it states Slot 1 AND Socket 370, it means there are processors Intel made, that were that model, but could have been a Slot 1 processor, or Socket 370 processor.

Using the first example;
Pentium III 500E,

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium-III/index.html

The first example on top, is an Intel Slot 1 processor style.
The rest of them on down are Socket 370 processors, EXCEPT for the Pentium III Xeon. (Zee-On)
It is a Slot 1 processor.

On/off switch


Hi,
Usually the power on button only has two wires. Then you have HDD led leads, reset leads, power led leads etc. These are all separate wires that fit onto separate pins in the Jpanel1 (front panel header).

Could be that the really old emachines grouped all these wires and made them into a plug to fit their own style motherboards.

If this is the case then that connector would not be on your newer motherboard, and it would have that Jpanel1 instead.

Hope this helps as I'm not very familiar with the old emachines.

Number codes for giving connections to HDD led,Power led, Reset SW & Power SW to motherboard


Those are really tricky and always vary from motherboard to motherboard.
without the exact model no one will be able to tell you exactly. But I'd recommend that you start out with the power (pw) plug and try trial and error. The only ones really necessary are the pw and reset. the only 2 that are polarity sensitive are the HDD light and pw led.
