    I already posted the problem regarding Compaq Power Led and Speakers connectors. I only could connect the Power Swithc and HDD. You gave me a link to visit and see some pics that show connectors on the Motherboard. However, I followed the pics and still can't figure out the Speakers and Power Led.

    I am not a geek. I really need someone that can guide me with this cables.

    I appreciate your time and help, thanks.

    The Compaq motherboard model is 06C0h, Pentium 3, Socket 370 FC-PGA, Compaq 686C3. I'm using the pc right now, therefore, I need to turn on/off in order to follow your suggestions. I been working since last night (Thursday) with a magnifier but the MB does not have any labels written on the panel. There are only numbers with letters: FB3, C46, C44, C45, FB3, etc.

    Hope you can find a pic of the same model, thanks.

Ok on the front panel pin header , you should see 2 pins labeled SPK for the speaker and 2 pins labeled pw led. And also you should see 2 pins for the reset connector. Use a flashlight and /or a magnify glass, the letter may be faint.

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

Check and see if your DC connector is loose:

Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it

Hi there
The front panel connectors are mainly,
  • harddisk activity connector
  • power switch connector
  • reset switch connector
  • power LED connector
  • speakers connector
  • USB connector
Harddisk activity connector
This normally comes red in colour and is labeled as HDD-LED
Power switch connector
This comes green in colour and is labeled as POWER-SW
Reset switch connector
This usually comes grey in colour and is labeled as RST-SW
Power LED connector
This is usually green in colour and is labled as PWR-LED
Speakers connector
This speaker will give different beep sounds during boot to tell the user if there is any errors. It occupies 4 pins, however only 2 is important for the function. Be sure to connect the red coloured cable to the positive polarity and the black to the negative.

My m2000 compaq notebook if I power it on the power led will blink three times and went off, it will not display anthing

Charge it first for sometime before powering it up. If it doesn't help. Clean your RAM card with soft eraser only its edge connector. Do it after you disconnect its battery and be sure that its power supply is also not connected to it. Then put eveything back and power it again.

Hope it helps.

PC will not power up

Check that the ram memory hasn't come unseated from the mobo. If you are using an above board video card also check that it is properly seated as well.

The clicking noise from the PSU is kinda perplexing though...

Need to find out where the on/off cables hook to a 277977-001 motherboard by compaq


Generaly, the little connectors on the printed side will face the bottom of the case. Also, typically, Black is negative, and white/colour is positive (except on the power sw, it doesn't matter). On the motherboard, where the connectors go, there should be some kind of print saying where to plug them in. (IE, POWER SW, would go into PWR, and HDD LED would go into HDLED and POWER LED would go into PWRLED).

It may look different than this, but generally the same kind of layout, as you can see, it shows the positions, as well as positive and negative.

Unfortunetely, I can't seem to find a schematic for the Compaq 277977-001 motherboard. I will try and find one, but I hope this helps you out with what you are trying to do...
