Pin connections on the motherboard of Acer Aspire AX3200-U3600A
I bought a new case and I can't figure out the pin connections from the case to my motherboard to get my PC running again. I'm not sure what the type of motherboard is in my PC. I have everything else connected except the power switch, reset switch, h.d.d led, +p, -p. If you can figure this out I would appreciate it so much. Thanks.

Re: Pin connections on the motherboard of Acer Aspire...
You'll need to know the model of your motherboard, and search for the motherboard manual in the internet if you don't have one.. in the manual search about the power pin connections and you will see where to connect those wires into the pin..TY

You will find 3-pin to Molex only as the 4th pin is for control which older Molex does not support. You bought the wrong model fan for your motherboard. You might consider rewiring it with the old connector. See e.g. http://www.silentpcreview.com/article1193-page7.html which provides wiring logic.
These are normally soldered to the motherboard. The only way to repair is to open the case, find where it connects to the motherboard and solder it back on. If the pin inside is broken you will need to try and get a new jack socket to solder on. Can be done, but fiddly job and may be quite expensive at your local PC repair shop.
Gail, you are needing to reinstall your operating system to gain control of the system. once you reinstall OS, your files will be placed into a windows.old file on your c:/ drive. hope this helps. ps. if have dont care about what is on the hard, reformat it if possible. plus you can buy a second harddrive and install OS on that and change that drive to your primary drive. your files will be accessible through drive d:/ unless its a laptop. sorry
Make sure you have securely connected both the four pin and 24 pin motherboard power connectors into the motherboard. If either one of these are even partially unplugged it can cause your system to freeze. Also, since you have been working inside the computer, try pushing the RAM in, just in case it came loose. If you are still encountering problems check all the rest of the power and data connections inside your computer including hard drives and the new video card.
New motherboard will have a picture of the pin connections and where they connect on the motherboard. Just follow these connections, also the wires leading from the from the front of the case to the motherboard are labelled as to what they connect to. As a final note, the white wire on the connectors is usually always the ground wire, so look at the drawing carefully to see which side is the positive and make sure that the coloured wire goes to the positive side not the white.

translated this is top row left to right ...... power led, power switch no connection
Bottom row is left to right........ hard drive, reset, no connection
Note: not all computer cases have a reset button, also the connectors for power led and hard drive produce a light, if the light does not show, power off the pc swithc the cable rooun 180deg on the connector pins and reconnect.
