Emachine case was damaged, putting board in different case. need a picture or schematics of board in order to replace new case front wire connections,(power switch, reset sw, led ect...) I have searched everywhere for this pc's specs manual to find this information. Can you be of any help? E-machine model t2893. Thank you

It is rare that you actually need schematics to hook up a motherboard in a new case. If you look closely at the connections on the motherboard there is white lettering to let you know where to hook up what connectors.
PWR for power, SATA 0 for the first sata device, etc. If this does not help let me know and I will find the manual or document you need.
On a Asus motherboard its not designed for eMachines systems because they come with a proprietary setting on the case. So what you need to is take the emachines motherboard that you took out and take the new motherboard that you bought and match the two. If there is a difference then you need to return it or buy a new case and you shift all the hardware from the emachines to the new case. If not buy a similar replacement board from emachines or ebay and you can find one and buy it. The Power setting is on all motherboards but some are different then others.
just start over and buy a motherboard and processor and memory and plug your stuff into it. you will need an operating system because the emachines operating system only workes with an emachines motherboard. emachines is the cheap brand from gateway and i have had nothing but trouble with those machines. Hope this helps and good luck
Hi, Usually the power on button only has two wires. Then you have HDD led leads, reset leads, power led leads etc. These are all separate wires that fit onto separate pins in the Jpanel1 (front panel header).
Could be that the really old emachines grouped all these wires and made them into a plug to fit their own style motherboards.
If this is the case then that connector would not be on your newer motherboard, and it would have that Jpanel1 instead.
Hope this helps as I'm not very familiar with the old emachines.
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
You should be able to see the words/letters that go with the jumpers on the motherboard itself. look around the jumper settings area for power, pwr etc. and match them up with your jumpers which should have what the go to on them.
It looks like you have an AMD Sempron 3000 system. If you have a mid tower case, look for any atx motherboard that supports that cpu. If you have a mini case, you will have to look for a mini-atx motherboard. The description about the motherboard will give the dimensions of the motherboard and you can measure your case to make sure it fits before ordering. With it being such an old computer, I would not put a lot of money into the motherboard itself. check out www.geeks.com at http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=A8N-LA-PB-NP&cat=MBB for a good buy at about $35.00 USD.
Try this link to Emachines page. After you put in the make and model and stuff you should be able to view the user manual for your machine. If this isn't what you need you are able to contact support from this page and maybe they can direct you to a more detailed explanation that may help more. eMachines use specially-made
boards for them so there is no manual as such as the boards aren't made
to be distributed. Basically they would all use the same sort of
connectors and blocks (and cases) to an extent that anybody can plug a
connector into the right place and it will work.
The easy way to
get round this is to find the power button first - try each two pin
connector first, press the button and see if it comes on. If not, move
along on the block until you find the right one. Then it's just a case
of trial-and-error on the other ones to find reset, power LED and HDD
