Press the FN +F5 or FN+F6 combinations a couple of times each. A laptop has three types of displays and they are controlled with the FN key.

    Well I gotta tell ya a sparking sound inside a PC is not good...you may need to take that one in to be looked at or if you know how to use a mutimeter to check power in the connections.

Where do i plug in the power switch in the mother board


The eMachines T5274 uses an ECS 945GCT-M3 motherboard.

This is ECS Support, and the download page for the motherboard manual,

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=719&CategoryID=1&MenuID=16&LanID=0

To the right of the Download Site heading, (At the bottom), left-click on the country nearest yours.

This is a PDF file download. Takes a few seconds to see the first page come up, and additional time for the file to fully download.

After the file has fully downloaded, go to Page 11.
(The PDF file page number box at the top, next to the blue Down Arrow, will show 11)

In the motherboard photo shown, the number 12 points to Panel1.

This is the Front Panel header.
(The Front Panel is the plastic front of your computer. This particular connector is referred to as a Header)

Barring you cannot download the motherboard manual, I will explain in detail as I go along.

Orient the motherboard in your mind, so that we are both looking at it in the same direction.

Processor to the top, Ram Memory slots to the right, Panel1, (Front Panel header), is at the bottom Right corner, and is along the edge of the motherboard.

Page 33.
There are 2 rows of pins. One row along the top, one row along the bottom.

4 pins along the top, 5 pins along the bottom.

The Bottom row of pins are numbered Odd.
The numbering starts from the Left side of the motherboard, and goes towards the Right.

The Top row of pins are numbered Evenly.
Numbering starts from the Left side of the motherboard, and goes towards the Right.

Top row numbering of pins, starting from the Left side, going towards the Right,
2, 4, 6, 8, and 10. There is No pin 10. Just a flat spot.

Bottom row numbering of pins, starting from the Left side, going towards the Right,
1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

Page 33.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.

Hard Disk LED (+) The Positive wire of the HDD LED light goes to Pin 1.
The Negative wire of the HDD LED light goes to Pin 3.
More than likely if the wires are marked, only the Positive ( + ) wire will be marked. Usually with a little tag that has + symbol on it.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch.
IF, a reset switch is offered on your eMachines.

Pin 7 is for the Positive wire. (+)
(It isn't necessary to have a Reset switch. It's a restart switch. Used to restart your computer, and there are many other options available)

C) Pin 9 is reserved, and not used.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive wire. (+)
(If the two wires are reversed, the Power On LED light will be dim)

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.
Pin 6 is for the Positive wire (+)

Have any questions regarding this, post in a Comment.

Replace power switch on HP Pavillion a1600n


1) Unplug computer from power.
2) Observe anti-static precautions.

Your body carries Static electricity. Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside of a computer.

Touch the metal frame of the open computer case, to relieve your body of static. (Should you get up, and leave in the middle of working on your computer, upon your return Touch the metal frame again )

Alternatively you can purchase an ESD wrist strap, (Electro Static Discharge), and use it. Average cost is around $6. The alligator clip is attached to the metal frame of the open computer case.

3) Identify each cable (Wire) that comes from the Front Panel, and goes to the motherboard.
Make notes, and a sketch of what pins on the motherboard those wires go to.

You may be just replacing the Power On switch, but if any of the other Front Panel cables are accidentally disconnected, from the Front Panel header on the motherboard, you won't have information as to where they go unless you make notes, and a sketch.

[The Front Panel is the plastic panel on the front of your computer, that has the Power On button, Power On light, HarDDrive activity light, etc. The Front Panel header, is the connector, or the pins on the motherboard, where the Front Panel wires go ]

This is HP Support, and the main page for the Pavilion a1600n Desktop PC,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3245022&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=7&submit.x=10&lang=en&cc=us

To see the Front Panel header, there is a photo of the motherboard, and an illustration. On the above main page click on - Product information
Then click on- Product specifications, and finally on - Motherboard specifications A8M2N- LA (NodusM3)

Scroll down the page to the motherboard illustration.
In the very bottom right corner of the motherboard, you will see the Front Panel header, F_Panel 1

The Front Panel will have to be removed to access the Power On switch. This is the time that the cables from the Front Panel, can be easily accidentally disconnected from the Front Panel header on the motherboard.

How to open the computer case, and how to remove the Front Panel, can be found in the Upgrading and Servicing Guide.

On the main page click on Manuals.
Now click on - Upgrading and Servicing Guide - 2.86M. This is a PDF file download. Takes a few seconds to see the first page.

The Power On switch is located inside of the plastic Power On button. The plastic tabs of the button are gently eased to the outside, and the Power On switch is slipped out.

The plastic may have become brittle over time due to age, and heat from inside the computer.
I find using a hair dryer set to low heat, and moving back, and forth across the plastic, helps soften the plastic of the Power On button, enough to remove the PS_ON switch more easily.

This Power On switch should be a good replacement,

Hi sivaprasanna,
Do you still have your manual? If so turn to page 72 for location.
For a close look at the motherboard front panel led to MB pins look at these two pics.
Location of front panel connections;

f111d01.jpg
Item " A " is the front panel MB pins.

Pic two is the layout for each front panel connection;

4db3155.jpg
The power on jumper uses pins 7 & 8.
Pin 7 is positive & pin 8 is negative.

Good luck sivaprasanna!

Toshiba satellite A60 no boot


We can only assume that because the cd drive operates then the motherboard is operating in part, although, the southbridge chip may be damaged, as the northbridge works memory etc. Maybe it is that the processor is fried as there is no fan and the system then shuts down. Toshiba are probably half way there with the answer, unless; they investigated further and decided it was not the processor but the motherboard.
