Posting pics on here is difficult. Fixya reduces them down so you can hardly see to read, so let me try to tell you.

CLK to 100 Mhz
CLK1-Pins 1 and 2
CLK2-Pins 1 and 2
CLK3-Pins 2 and 3

Multiplier to 5.5
FREQ1-Pins 1 and 2
FREQ2-Pins 1 and 2
FREQ3-Pins 2 and 3

Don't forget the CPU voltage jumper. If you comment back with the voltage I can tell you that also.

If you would prefer, I can email you scans of the pages you need. (I already scanned them. It's just that posting them reduces them too much to see clearly.)

BTW that was a good MB in its time. I had 2 of them. Still have one using a 500MHZ AMD running Windows XP Pro. It's a little slow though. :-)

http://support.gateway.com/s//MOTHERBD/FIC/105554/105554nv.shtml

Click on Product Views, then on - M-Front Panel Connector

The plastic front of your eMachines is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.
Sometimes abbreviated as F_PANEL, or FP1.

Looking at the motherboard installed in the computer case, the Front Panel header is at the Bottom/Right.

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/FIC/105554/105554mvr4.shtml

The above link shows the pinout, of the Front Panel header.
(Note* The Front Panel header may not be Orange in color)

It is the Second header over from the bottom/right side.
The pins are numbered.

Starting on the TOP row, from the RIGHT side going towards the LEFT;
Pins 10, 8, 6, 4, and 2

Starting on the BOTTOM row, from the RIGHT side going towards the LEFT;
Pins 9, 7, 5, 3, and 1.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive Activity LED light.
The LED light that blinks when the harddrive is in use, or active.

Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the LED is dim when operating, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch (Button), IF a Reset switch is used.


C) Pin 9 is for 5 Volt power. I believe if memory serves, that it is ONLY used by the factory.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive wire. ( + )
If the Power On LED light is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

F) Pin 10 is N/C. Not Connected.
(Note it states - Key
It shows you where the pins are. What order they should be by the missing pin)

The FIC K8MC51G motherboard;

1) Has a Socket 754 processor socket.
AMD processors fit in this processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_754

2) The motherboard chipset is an Nvidia C51.
It is part of the GeForce 6 series, and more specifically, the GeForce 6100 series,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_6_Series#GeForce_6100_and_6150_series_chip_specifications

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_6_.286xxx.29_series

Using this knowledge you can see what Processors are supported, and what Ram Memory is supported, (And how much)

AMD Sempron, or AMD Athlon 64 processors, with up to a 1000MHz Front Side Bus. (FSB) { That fit in a Socket 754 processor socket)

DDR Sdram ram memory that is 200MHz up to 400MHz.
(PC2100, or PC2700, {333MHz}, or PC3200)

{184-pins. 92 on each side}

OR,

DDR2 Sdram ram memory that is 400MegaHertz up to 1066MHz.
(PC2-3200, or PC2-4200/4300, or PC2-5300, or PC2-6400, or PC2-8500)

{240 pins. 120 on each side}

Your motherboard uses DDR Sdram. (184 pins. 92 on each side)

Maximum TOTAL Amount is 2GigaByte. (2GB)
Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 1GB.

3) Has one PCI-Express x16 slot for a PCI-Express graphics card.

The PCI-Express technology used for the motherboard is
PCI-Express 1.1

HOWEVER, you can use a PCI-Express graphics card that is based on the PCI-Express 2.0 technology.

PCI-Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible, with PCI-Express 1.1

You just will Not get the full capability of a PCI-Express 2.0 graphics card.
Will you notice? No

Need the pin Config for the Motherboard pwr switch and hdd switch for a Emachine T2672 and pwd led thanks


Pin Configuration = Pinout

The Front plastic panel of the computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard that the cables (Wires) go to, is the Front Panel header.
Front Panel header pinout.

The motherboard used in an eMachines T2672 desktop computer is an FIC AU31 motherboard.
Made by First International Computers (Inc.) for eMachines.

http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socketa/au31.shtml

Orient the motherboard like it is in the photo, so we are both looking at it in the same direction.
{Processor to the top, Ram memory slots to the right, white PCI slots to the bottom. The way it sits in the computer case}

The Front Panel header, is a small black rectangular block that sits horizontally, at the far right bottom corner.

It has two rows of pins.
4 across the top, and 5 across the bottom.

(The small rectangular block above it, is for connecting a Power On LED light that has 3 wires. More on this in a moment)

The pins are numbered.
The pins are numbered Evenly across the top, and Odd across the bottom.

Starting from the Left side going across to the Right, on the Top row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.
There is No Pin 10.

Starting from the Left side going across to the Right, on the Bottom row;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light. (HDD LED)
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire ( + )
(If the LED light is dim when operating, switch the wires around)

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used. (Reset button)

C) Pin 9 is Not Used. (NC. No Connection)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light, IF it is a 2 wire LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
(If the LED light is dim, switch the wires around)

If the Power On LED light has 3 wires:
Use the Power On header above the Front Panel header.
This rectangular block has 3 pins.

Starting from the Left side going to the Right; Pins 1 , 2, and 3.
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire.
Pins 2 and 3 are Ground wires.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Power On button plastic assembly has an ATX power on switch inside it)

This is a link to a free motherboard manual, for the FIC AU31 motherboard. It is in Zipped file form.

[ P.S.
The motherboard chipset is an Nvidia Crush 18G + MCP AGP
It is an Nvidia Force 2 chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_chipsets#nForce2

Supports Processors that are AMD, and fit in a Socket A processor socket.
(Socket A is also known as Socket 462)

Supports AMD processors that have either a 200MegaHertz Front Side Bus, or a 266MHz FSB, or a 333MHz FSB.

AMD Athlon XP processors with either a 266MHz FSB, or 333MHz FSB.
From the 1500+ model up to the 2800+ model.

AMD Duron processors with a 200MHz FSB.
From the 800MHz to the 1.3GHz models

(AMD Athlon XP is the top of the line. Then it's Duron, then Sempron.
A Sempron processor has half of the L2 cache that a comparable Athlon XP does)

Ram Memory is DDR Sdram at either 200MHz, or 266MHz, or 333MHz, or 400MHz.
Depends on the Processor used.

(Ram Memory typically operates at half of the frequency rate ('Speed') that the Processor does.
If the processor's FSB is 333MHz, you can use 400MHz DDR Sdram. {PC3200}

Confusing I know.
DDR Sdram is 'double-pumped'. It is actually 200MHz for PC3200.
This is close to half of 333MHz.

Processor has an FSB of 266MHz? Ram memory used will be 266MHz. Remember, it is actually 133MHz for the ram memory. (PC2100)

Need an AMD Athlon processor?
I found this place years ago. Not advertising for them. Just computer geeks sticking together, and sharing information. (I have bought a motherboard from them, and it works fine),

The compatibility isn't with the memory, it's with the motherboard and its chipset. In your case the motherboard is a FIC AM-37 which has an VIA KM266A chipset - an extremely old chipset . The only processors accepted are AMD Athlon XP of the first generation of which you already have the fastest version
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_Athlon(tm)_XP_3200%2B#Athlon_XP_.22Palomino.22_.28Model_6.2C_180_nm.29
So no, it's not possible to upgrade it. You will have to buy another motherboard-processor combo.

Getting a no signal input on monitor on an emachine w3118 what would cause this


Several things xopunkyxox.

No Signal means there is no Video Signal coming from the computer. The monitor is working fine.

eMachines computers are budget computers. This means they sell for a low price, but also have low quality hardware components used inside the computer.

There are two top issues for computer failure. These really affect an eMachines computer.

1) Power Supply
The PSU (Power Supply Unit) used is a low quality unit to begin with, in an eMachines.

2) Dirty computer.
Dirt, dust, etc., can bring a computer down to it's knees.

The eMachines W3118 desktop computer uses an FIC K8MC51G motherboard.
(First International Computers, inc)

(The eMachines W3118 desktop computer is a North American model)

FIC K8MC51G Specifications:

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/FIC/105554/105554sp25.shtml

http://www.fic.com.tw/product/motherboard/AMD/K8MC51G.aspx

The eMachines W3118 motherboard has a Socket 754 processor socket.
Comes with an AMD Sempron 3100+ processor.
(1.8GHz)

AMD processors run HOT. Keep the Heatsink, and Fan on top of the processor, CLEAN.
The Thermal Compound (Thermal Paste or Thermal Grease) that is in-between the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink, can dry out over time.
The heat developed by the Processor when operating does this.

A Power Supply (SMPS) has two cooling features.
1) The internal fan that you can see by looking at the back of the Power Supply, (Back of computer)
2) Heatsinks used inside the Power Supply.

Example of an internal view of an average SMPS,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Switched-mode_power_supply

Click on the photo to the top right. In-between the letters B and C, and also C and D, are aluminum Heatsinks.
What looks to be finned rectangles arranged in a vertical strip.

When the fan's blades, center hub, and surrounding cage, (Shroud) are clogged with 'gunk', the cooling capacity of the Fan drops tremendously.

Same thing with the fins of the Heatsinks.

[Construction of an average Heatsink is a plate of metal with tall, thin fins protruding from it.
The plate of metal absorbs heat from whatever object it is placed against, and the tall, thin fins absorb heat from the plate of metal.

The fins then radiate the heat away. With a fan used in conjunction with a Heatsink, the fan pushes air in-between the fins, and around the fins. The air flow helps carry heat away]

Heat = Wasted Energy
The overheated Power Supply strains to keep up with the call for power, but eventually fails.
(Hardware components inside the Power Supply fail)

I'm willing to bet it's Power Supply failure.
Test the three main voltages from the Power Supply. (3.3 Volts, {Orange}, 5 Volts {Red}, and 12 Volts, {Yellow)

The next thing to be an inherent problem with an eMachine desktop computer, are the Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard.
Low quality capacitors are used.
(Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor)

Visual identification of bad capacitors, (Electrolytic),

http://www.capacitorlab.com/visible-failures/index.htm

[NOTE*
Not all bad Electrolytic Capacitors show visual signs of failure. Sometimes the Electrolytic Paste inside the capacitor dries up. No bulging case, or leakage will be present ]

Summary:
1) Computer unplugged from power, Anti-Static Precautions observed, clean the inside of the computer out.
2) Replace the Power Supply.

Also remove the Ram Memory modules, ('Stick'), and clean the gold plated contact pins on the ram memory module, with a pencil eraser.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

(You can click on the photo to enlarge)

Your eMachines W3110 uses DDR Sdram ram memory.
184 contact pins. 92 on Each side.

[It is DDR Sdram that operates at either 333MegaHertz {333MHz}, or 400MegaHertz. {400MHz}. Also know as PC2700 or PC3200, respectively]

Handle the ram memory by the body. Refrain from touching the contact pins.
The body of the ram memory is coated with a see-through protective plastic, which shields it from Static.

The pencil eraser is rubbed going Down the contact pin. Start at the top, and go down. If you are using the eraser on the end of a pencil, and not a solid eraser, refrain from letting the metal band touch the contact pins.

After you have cleaned each contact pin it may look as though you have not done very much.
I assure you have. Doesn't take much 'corrosion' on a gold plated surface.

Use air to remove the eraser dust before reinstalling the ram memory.
You can use a can of compressed air for computers, or air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.

Use compressed air to clean out the ram memory slot/s on the motherboard also.

My power led connector (green,white) power sw connector (black,white) got out of place and i dont where they go


The eMachines T3302 desktop computer, uses an FIC K8M-800M motherboard.
(First international Computer, Inc.)

Where those wires go on the motherboard, is termed a Front panel header.

The Front Panel is the plastic front bezel of your computer.
(Where the Power On button is, Power On LED light, and so on)

Looking at the motherboard with the Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, the Front Panel header is at the bottom right corner, and over to the left.

Look at the jumper block in the bottom right corner. Right in the corner.
This is the LED type selector, jumper block.
Has 6 pins.
3 across the Top, 3 across the Bottom.

(This jumper block is to set whether you are using a Power On LED light, that has Dual Colors, or a Single color.
The default setting of the jumper on the block, is set to use a Dual Color LED light, for the Power On LED)

Move to the left of this jumper block. The Front Panel header is to the left of this jumper block.

(FIC terms it a Front Panel Block Connector)

It should be White in color.
Is right against the bottom edge of the motherboard. (Parallel to the outside edge of the motherboard)

Has two rows of pins sticking up.
5 across the Top.
4 across the Bottom.

The pins are numbered from the Right, going towards the Left.

(From the Power On LED jumper block, towards the Front Panel header)

On the Top row going from Right, towards the Left,
Pins 1 ,3, 5, 7, and 9.

On the Bottom row going from the Right, towards the Left,
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
(Green)

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Power On switch.
Pin 5 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
(Black)

[Although it really doesn't matter which way the wires go. It's a SWITCH]

C) Pins 2 and 4 are for the HarDDrive activity LED.
Pin 2 is for the Positive wire ( + )

D) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Reset switch.
(IF used)

If any of your LED lights are dim, after attaching the Positive wire for each LED, it's because the Positive wire is on the wrong pin.
Switch the wires around
