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. :-)

EMACHINES SPECS FOR A T3025


OK
We are in the motherboard category, so I will just list the specifications of the motherboard,

The eMachines T3025 Desktop PC uses the FIC AU31 motherboard.
First International Computers (Inc)
Also known as the FIC K7M-NF18G,

http://www.elhvb.com/mboards/OEM/eMachines/manuals/index.html

In the list on the left side, click on the blue -> FIC AU31
This is a Zip file, and the motherboard user manual.

[ A Zip file is a compressed file. It is used to send large amounts of information, more easily.
The file needs to be decompressed, or 'unzipped' ]

After you click on FIC AU31, a small window will come up -
Opening AU31_manual.zip

Make SURE there is a Green dot in the small circle, to the left of Save File.
IF not; click in the small circle to the left of Save File.

A small download window will come up.
Allow the file to download all the way, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.
(Yellow folder icon with a zipper on it. AU31_manual(1).zip, to the right)

In the next small window go to the far left, and click on -
Extract all files. (Under Folder Tasks subheading)

At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.
(That's it. DO NOT make any changes in the second small window.
Just click on Next, Next, and Finish)

In the last small window DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

You are now looking at a PDF file, of the motherboard user manual.

1) Processor Socket:
Socket A.
Also known as Socket 462,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_462

B) Processor (CPU) Support:
AMD Athlon XP, and AMD Duron processors.

AMD Athlon XP processors that are 1500+ to 2800+, and have either a Front Side Bus of 266MegaHertz, or 333MHz.

(Front Side Bus = FSB)

AMD Duron processors that are from 800MHz up to 1300MHz. (1.3GHz)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Athlon_XP#Athlon_XP.2FMP

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

C) Motherboard chipset:
Nvidia Crush 18G, plus MCP AGP set,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NForce2

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

D) Ram Memory:

Two ram memory slots. (The ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor, {CPU}, is ram memory Slot 1. Also known as DIMM 1)

TOTAL amount of ram memory is 2GB.
EACH ram memory slot amount is 1GB.

Uses either DDR Sdram at 200MegaHertz, or 266MHz, or 333MHz, or 400MHz.
That is PC1600, PC2100, PC2700, and PC3200; respectively.

Bear in mind;
Ram Memory typically operates at HALF of the Processor's FSB.

Ram memory MUST be;
Non-ECC
Unbuffered
Uses 2.5 Volts.

(JEDEC set the voltage standards for DDR Sdram at 2.5 Volts.
This means the default voltage for ram memory, set by the factory for this motherboard, is 2.5 Volts.

I don't see any features in BIOS Setup, for changing the voltage parameters, for Ram Memory.

You CAN set the FSB support for the Processor, however.
There is a jumper to the Left of the Northbridge chip, and bottom/left of the Processor socket.

Set the FSB support for the Processor, at either 100/133Mhz.
or 133/166MHz.
See Page 7 (Adobe Reader page number box at Top)

Bear in mind that AMD processors are 'Double-pumped'.
100MHz = 200MHz
133MHz = 266MHz
166MHz = 333MHz

Also on Page 8 - Install the CPU, there is a statement;

"The mainboard has built-in Switching Voltage Regulator to support CPU Vcore autodetection.

That is, It has the ability to detect and recognize the CPU voltage,
clock, ratio and enables users to set up the CPU frequency from the BIOS Setup Screen.

Users can adjust the frequency through Frequency / Voltage Control of the BIOS Setup Screen."

That should be in the -Advanced Features Setup - menu.
Page 21.
The manual doesn't discuss it on Page 21, or anywhere else through the manual. (To my knowledge)

You'll have to go into Advanced Features Setup menu, and look around.
Or we can go through this menu together, posting back, and forth in Comments.

E) Graphics expansion slot:

AGP technology,

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

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/AGP-Bus-Tutorial/155

Can support AGP cards that are either AGP 4X, or AGP 8X.

Doubt you will find an AGP 4X graphics card, and if you do you don't want to use it, anyway.

Use AGP 8X graphics card. It will be 0.8 Volts.

Need emachines T3304 motherboard connection diagram


The eMachines T3304 Desktop PC uses an FIC K8MC51G motherboard.

First International Computers { Inc}

http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket754/fick8mc51g.shtml

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.
(A Zipped file is a compressed file. It is used for one, to send a large file over the internet)

If you do not know how to unzip a file, post in a Comment, and I'll lead you step by step.

[ 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 Need the jumper settings for the fic k8mc51g motherboard from a emachines desktop computer. Putting the motherboard in a custom case.


There is a 4-Pin Speaker connector that is not used by Gateway on the motherboard (right beside) the CMOS jumper settings (Pins).
The clear CMOS settings jumper block is right beside the speaker pins. You can use this jumper block to clear the CMOS RAM, which is powered by the onboard real-time clock button cell battery.
Pin 3 is indicated by the markings on the board.
Settings: Pins 1 and 2 covered = Normal Operation Pins 2 and 3 covered = Clear CMOS enabled.crazyeyes746.jpg

What is max new cpu speed to change for old cpu ? k7sv266ad


The KT266A is a VIA motherboard chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_VIA_chipsets#Slot_A_and_Socket_A

The motherboard chipset for your motherboard, consists of a Northbridge, and Southbridge chip.

The Northbridge is a VIA 8366A
The Southbridge is a VIA VT8235

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

[Note*
CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short ]

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.
Handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

[A graphics card installed into a PCI expansion slot is Not high-speed graphics.
Integrated Graphics is Not high-speed graphics.

AGP and PCI Express are high-speed graphics.
If you have an AGP graphics expansion slot, it is handled by the Northbridge chip.
If you have a PCI Express expansion slot, it is handled by the Northbridge chip ]

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer. This is shown in the diagram.

The VIA KT266A's Northbridge chip, (VT 8366A) supports AMD processors with UP TO a 266MHz Front Side Bus.
(266MHz FSB)

In the chart you see under the FSB heading -> 100 - 133MHz
100MHz to 133Mhz.

AMD processors are 'Double-Pumped'.
Therefore 133MHz becomes 266MHz.

233Mhz with the jumpers at their present positions?

Weird!

Looking at the motherboard, as it is mounted in the computer case; Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right,
5 White PCI slots to the Bottom;

The J4 jumper is above the CMOS battery.
The CPU Frequency Select jumper.

(The J1 jumper is right next to the CMOS battery. To the left. That is the Clear CMOS jumper)

The jumper has 3 pins. Number 1 pin is on the LEFT.
From Left to Right; Pins 1, 2, and 3.

With a jumper block,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Jumperblock-shunts.jpg

,on Pins 1 and 2, you have a 100MHz FSB.

With a jumper block on Pins 2 and 3, you have a 133MHz Front Side Bus.

Processor you pick have a broken pin?

You can use AMD Athlon processors with up to a 133Mhz FSB, or AMD Duron processors with up to a 133MHz FSB.

[Actually 200MHz FSB, and 266MHz FSB. Remember what I stated about Double-Pumped ]

Example,

http://www.weirdstuff.com/cgi-bin/item/13160

Here is a link to a free User Manual, for the Syntax SV266A motherboard,

If you still have your manual, see page 19. Set CPU External bus frequency (100MHz) as shown & CPU to bus use 5.5x = 550MHz.

There seem to be more setting after going over the manual.
Any of these power supplies will work with the FIC board. All come with the 20-pin ATX main power. Some come with 24-pin power connector that you just do not use.
As far as finding a power switch for an ATX power supply try looking to a Good Will store. Most places have old PC parts for sale cheep. or try here: http://www.trianglecables.com/atxcaspusbut.html

Hard drive recognized as slave drive


You probably need the change the jumper on the hard drive itself. The jumper looks like a thin little cap that covers a set of pins on the back of the hard drive. You should see it next to when you power supply connects and most drives will usually have a diagram on how to change the jumper from a slave to a master.
