Most PC equipment is interchangeable. Seems like a there are chipset variations in the boards as well as a few spec variations. Most of the I/O configurations seems the same, so everything should hook up OK. The processor socket and memory support is also the same. I would expect you should have no problem with this as a replacement.
The docs, including the service manual, for the Dell Vostro 238 are at this web page. If you're looking for an actual circuit board schematic, you're probably out of luck. If you need the board layout for jumpers and so forth, the service manual page 28 is for you.
the only reason to have removed them was to switch the board or put the board in a new case..if you put a new board the new board is what you have to go by, look in the book, or take the number off the motherboard and go to yahoo and type in schematic for xxxxx board.
DO NOT go by emachine model as its worthless, too many models have different hardware.
This is all basic repair 101, how do you have customers? lol
WhoDoctorK9 is right. You'll need the model number of the pc to pull up any schematics of the board. This is, however, how you solve this problem. Just google your model number and try to find a schematic of the board.
If you can't find the schematic, the board should be marked with some sort of 'pwr' blah blah white lettering. It's hit & miss, but you can find the connection without visual aid by dimensions of the plugs and the obscure little identifiers on the board itself.
