Question about Dell Dimension B110 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Clarification I'm not sure, I unplugged a small blue and a small black plug at the bottom of the mother board, a large white plug on the right top as well as the data cable next to it, and a four pronged plug just above the hard drive.

    If it's an old PC, the four pronged plug might be the floppy drive power connector. Not sure about the other plugs - you might need some hardware engineer to visit you to help.

    Is your PC working after all this? Or giving any error?

My Gateway FX 7026 goes "Black Screen" upon start-up and nothing happens.


The video is out.If you have a video card,replace it.For now you can run graphics off the mother board.To do that.Turn the computer off and unplug the power.Look on the back of the machine find where the monitor is connected.There are two places to connect a monitor.The first is kinda high on the machine and is blue,if you are already plugged in to the blue one the mother board is bad.Take it to a shop for repair,or buy a new computer.If the monitor is plugged into the white slot you have a bad graphics card and need to replace it.

I have novice computer experience when it comes to internal repair, but i was working on a E-machine T6211 and after cleaning out all the dust, it turns on, the fans run, no led lights come on, the cd rom...


OK, it sounds to me like you have one of two issues going on.

When you clean out dust near the mother board or system board you need to be VERY careful. There are small diodes that stick up from the system board that are very sensitive. So, if they get hit or the small wires that connect them to the board get severed, you system board could get damaged.

From your description, you are getting power to the system board, but there are not signals going from the system board to any of the drives. Inside your computer, there are several ribbon cables plugged into the system board. Make sure that all the cables are plugged in securely at both ends. Also, there is on large collection of wires coming from the power supply that go to a large, white rectangular plug that plugs into the system board. Make sure that this is securely plugged in. There may be another small white square plug that also plugs into the system board and provides power.

If all the cables are secure, check the power cables as well as the ribbon cables, and your hard drive and CD drives are not responding, I would guess that you have a damaged system board.

Do this with the computer powered off and unplugged.

Please check this and see if it makes any difference.

Let me know.

My card reader on my computer has stopped working!? ok i took my computer in to my computer teacher to get it fixed, well she put in a second hard drive in and said it should fine. well it does but...


Ah, My Bad, big_dude2010, perfectly understandable about the budget thing. The world is in an economic crisis right now.

As for reattaching the Card Reader cable, can't help you.

OH, I'm just PLAYIN'!


Before we go ANY further:

1) Computer off, and unplugged from power.

Unplug the power cable FROM the surge protector, and NOT plugged into the surge protector, and take it out of the back of the Power Supply.

With the power cable plugged into the surge protector, and unplugging it out of the Power Supply, you could create a voltage spike.

Result can burn out the Power Supply, and may go on to burn out the Processor, Motherboard, Ram Memory, and a graphics card. (IF used)

Many have stated, that they do this all the time. Eventually, they come back to state they fried out their power supply, and/or motherboard, and so on.

2) Computer unplugged from power, computer case open, TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case to relieve your body of Static electricity.

Static can fry out, (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside your computer.
(For this reason also work on a table. If you have a carpet floor, refrain from swinging your feet back, and forth.
If you get up, walk away, then return, TOUCH the metal frame again)

If you already know the above, please disregard.

The Card Reader cable has a white sheath, and is approximately as thick as a No.2 pencil.

It should have 8 wires in it.
Orange, Yellow, Blue, Brown, Red, White, Green, and Black.

It will have a white rectangular connector on one end, that has 10 socket holes. 2 rows of 5 holes.
Only 8 socket holes are used.

The other end of the cable should have a Black connector. It also has 10 socket holes. 2 rows of 5 holes. This connector plugs into the circuit board of the Card Reader.

The White connector end plugs into the motherboard. It plugs into the Front USB 1 header on the motherboard.

(Connector on a motherboard is referred to as a Header)

Orienting the motherboard, so we are both looking at it in the same direction.
Processor to the top. Ram Memory slots to the right.
There are 3 white PCI slots down towards the bottom.

The white PCI slot that is closest to the edge of the motherboard, is PCI3. (PCI 3)

Down below the PCI 3 slot is a blue header. NOT the one you want.
That's for the audio ports in the front of the computer. (Front Panel)

To the right of the blue header, is a white header. This is the one you want. Front USB1. (The Front USB1 header, is below the Right/Bottom corner of the PCI 3 slot)

Note that there are 5 pins going along the top of the Front USB 1 header, and 4 pins going along the bottom.

The missing pin, or blank spot, helps you to orient the white connector of the card reader cable.

The card reader cable's white connector also has a missing socket hole, or blank spot.

There is No slot on the header for the motherboard, and No locating lug on the Card Reader cable's, white connector.

Line the card reader cable connector's blank spot, up with the blank spot on the Front USB1 header.

This is HP Support, and the Motherboard Specifications page, for the Compaq Presario SR1303WM Desktop PC,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00069442&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=447312

Scroll down the page about halfway, and you'll see an illustration of your motherboard.

(To enlarge it for better viewing, you can right-click right on it, then in the drop down menu, left-click on - Save As
Put this in your My Pictures folder.

Then go to My Pictures, and double-click on the illustration of the motherboard.
Now go below in the window, and click on the + sign to Zoom In.
Use the bottom, and side bar, to move it around to the view you want)

Below the illustration is an actual photograph of the motherboard, with no hardware components installed.

The Black connector that goes to the circuit board of the Card Reader, plugs in like this.

There are four wires across the top. There are five wires across the bottom.

Looking INSIDE your computer, TOWARDS the Card Reader circuit board, the four wires go on top, when plugged in. (Not shouting)

Again, looking at the back of the Card Reader, the color code of the wires on the top, going from Left to Right, are:
Thin Black wire, Green, White, and Red.

Wires going along the bottom, starting from Left going Right,
Thick Black wire, Brown, Blue, Yellow, and Orange

Unplugged power button from emachine t3624 forgot how to


If you can not see a "+" and "-" sigh on the connector as well as on the motherboard, then try it both ways. If you get it wrong the first time, it will not harm anything, just plug it in the other way if it does not work. Good luck!

Can't access the mother board


Remove the left side panel of the computer (front facing you). After that you will see a quick release located at the top, off center slightly. That releases the lock for the drive carriage (Dvd, cd, hard drive, floppy). Pull the small metal piece towards you (left side of cpu facing you), and slide the whole carriage towards the front of the cpu. This will give you enough room to install another pc100 stick onto the motherboard. Install while off and unplugged, make sure it sits correctly and the white tabs on top and bottom snap in, reboot and bios should show upgrade.

POWER ISSUES? OR MOTHER BOARD......


IT WAS THE POWER SUPPLY. AS SOON AS I PUT A NEW UNIT IN, IT BOOTED RIGHT UP... NO PROBLEMS YET AND IT'S BEEN ABOUT 20 HOURS. I WAS TOLD THAT A POWER UNIT WILL DO THAT BEFORE IT GOES FOR GOOD(ALONG WITH *********** BOARD)....

Ooops....


Go to the manufactures site of *********** board and get the wiring diagram. It's not as scary as it seems. You can try looking for the wire you may have unplugged. It will have the same amount of pin plugs unless its more than one wire. If so usually if you look on the black plug on the wire it should have an abbreviation like hdd, restart, power light ect.....
Do you think it was your power plugs?

I finally found a solution, on a dead page in google cache only:
http://www.pcclub.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=27%26threadid=16567
The solution was posted by JontyBonkers.


The pins go like this:
1 2 3 4 5
_ 6 7 _ 8

1 = ground
2 = ground
3 = D1-
4 = ground
5 = D1+
6 = D2-
7 = D2+
8 = +5V

It seems that the case for those Packard-Bells had a small circuit board that divided the 5V line to both sockets.

D- are usually white, D+ - green, 5V - red, ground - black
