ANY suggestions would be appreciated. castawaydreamer,aol

How can i setteled the front panal usb pin connect on the usb panal on motherboard gigabyte845 gvm-rz


There are 2 USB Ports for the Front Panel USB ie F_USB1 / F_USB2 beside the "PWR_LED". You can use either F_USB ports. Just plug in the USB cable pin accordingly in the Configuration below. Be sure the the negative & positve pins are correctly plug in or it might caused damage to you Mainboard. (Pins 9 &10 not used). For further reference you can download the manual @ Link

Pin No.- Configuration
1-Power 2-Power
3-USBDx- 4-USBDy-
5-USBDx+ 6-USBDy+
7-GND 8-GND

We have a desktop computer((Model: GATEWAY 838GM) misplace the ADAPTER for the CPU which one to get please thanks


sallyduby we may have some confusion here.

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.

CPU does not refer to a Personal Computer. At least not since the 1960's, and not unless you wish to confuse someone with the wrong reference. ;)

This is Gateway Support > Gateway 838GM Desktop PC > Main Support page,

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/5389/5389nv.shtml

In the list click on Components.

A) There is no adapter device for the CD drive, or DVD drive, unless this is a mistaken reference to the flat ribbon data cable

B) There is no adapter device for the Harddrive, unless this is a mistaken reference to the SATA data cable that connects the SATA harddrive to the motherboard.

C) There IS possibly an adapter for the Keyboard, if you are using a Keyboard with a USB connector on the end of the cable, and are not using the original Keyboard that has a PS/2 connector.

Example;

http://www.directron.com/freeusbps2.html

D) There is no adapter for the Media Card Reader, unless this is a mistaken reference to the data cable that connects the Media Card Reader to the motherboard.

E) There are no adapters for the Ram Memory module/s.

F) There are no adapters for the Modem. The Modem plugs straight into the motherboard.

G) There are no adapters for the Motherboard, unless a USB mouse, or again a USB keyboard, is being used.
The same style of adapter for the USB Keyboard will also work for a USB mouse.

H) There is no adapter for the Power Supply, unless this is a reference to a power cable adapter that could go to a computer case fan, from a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

(The 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, and it's connector, are shown in the middle photo.
The Harddrive example/s shown is an IDE {PATA} harddrive. This style of Harddrive uses a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable)

I) There is no adapter for the Intel Pentium 4 CPU {Processor} (3.0GHz, 800MHz FSB)

The motherboard has an LGA 775 processor socket.
The Processor has the socket holes, while the processor socket has the pins.
775 socket holes, 775 pins.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_775

Unless this is a mistaken reference to the Fan/Heatsink combo that sits on top of the CPU.

Typical Fan/Heatsink combo example of Processors (CPU's) using an LGA 775 processor socket,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2943299&CatId=493

(Except the Gateway version is square)

J) No adapter for the Speakers unless I am mistaken.

Post back in a Comment, and give at least a general description of the adapter you are referencing to.

Regards,
joecoolvette

I am replacing a motherboard with a G31-M7 TE and find that my existing power supply has a 20 pin plug consistant with the old motherboard but the new one has a 24 pin socket. Why is this and do I need to...


New motherboards have a 24-pin power connector. Here is a diagram of both plugs:

pgh_pa_guy_3.jpg

You can see that the two are almost identical. The extra 4 pins on the 24-pin connector provide extra connection points for a few voltages. Newer boards and processors need more current, and the extra pins were added to prevent overloading.

Adapter cables are available to go from your 20-pin power supply plug to the 24-pin motherboard connector. Here's one from TigerDirect, and other vendors have them as well. If you're not making other changes than replacing the motherboard, you shouldn't need more than this adapter.

If you are upgrading your processor along with the motherboard, you should probably replace the power supply too. Older power supplies are often in the 300-watt range, and this is too low for reliable operation with new processors, motherboards and video cards. A new 500 or 600-watt supply is not expensive, and would give you the 24-pin power connection the motherboard needs.

Hope this has helped. Thanks for using Fixya!

DO I REALLY NEED A FIREWIRE CARD?


If your camera is Firewire, iLink,or IEEE 1394, then you need Firewire support or a Firewire card.

If your camera has a USB symbol, or says USB anywhere in the manual, you can use USB for the functions it allows.

There is no USB to Firewire or Firewire to USB without the use of an advanced device.

Tower top mounted USB portss


The cables from the front panel USB connectors have a key in them that will line up with the missing pin on the board's USB headers. Just line up the connectors and plug them onto the board. It doesn't matter if you use USB1 on the board for the plug marked USB1.

Mainboard does not recognize the PS/2 mouse


Sounds like the serial port died. I have seen that happen before. You could try a DB9 to PS/2 adapter or DB9 to USB. The DB9 to PS/2 is cheaper of the 2.

Hope this helps.

USB


On your Mboard there are pins grouped together as such
. . . . .
. . . .
Now below these pins there should be a message USB 4 or USB Front or something to that effect.
using your USB Cables starting from left to right on the top row of pins plug in this order RED - WHITE - GREEN - BLACK, you should be left over with the last spare pin on the far right. Plug the second USB Cable in the exact same order in the secon row
If your pins are such . . . . .
. . . .
Then Just Plug the USB Cable The same way but going from right to left starting with the RED plug on the far Right hand side

let me know how you go
