If the wire is coming from the front bezel of the computer it sounds like your front panel connections. They connect to the motherboard and control your power button and lights. That would explain why it won't power on too! Unfortunately all motherboard connect to the front in different places, but it will always be on the outer edge of the board usually near the bottom of the tower. Try seeing which pins on the board match up. Hope this helps!

New 4 pin plug


All domestic dryers have a 3 screw terminal block which you connect the cord to. 3 wire cords connect the outer wires to the outer terminal screws, with the center wire connected to the center terminal block screw. 4 wire cords connect with the red or black to either outer terminal screw, the white connected to the center terminal block screw, and the green to the adjcent cabinet screw usually green in color.

How to connect my hp pavilion 7915 desktop to a wifi network ?


The HP Pavilion 7915 will need a wifi network adapter card to connect to a wireless network. You would need to add an wired network interface adapter card to use a wired network, instead of a dial up connection. Check the height of your computer - a "Low Profile Card" may be needed. There are several versions of the 7915.

You can get a USB network adapter or a PCI slot card for either type of network from most computer stores. Depending on which version of the 7915 you have, you may have a limited number of USB ports. In that case the PCI card may be a better option assuming you have an available slot. Other models only have one PCI slot which can be blocked by a VGA card.

What OS is on your computer? I see some models shipped with XP and others with an older version of Windows. You will need to find a card that has drivers for your OS. Finding XP drivers will be easier than those for the older versions of Windows. Depending on the unit you order and your OS, the drivers may be already be installed in the OS. In that case, plug it in and go.

If you go with a PCI wireless network interface card, turn off the computer and unplug all of the wires before opening your case. Ground yourself relative to the computer by touching a metal part of the case before continuing. Remove the slot cover screw (hex head with a Philips slot) (for most desktops) from an available slot. Push the section of the card with the gold contacts fully into the slot. Work carefully and keep the slot section of the card between the case and motherboard. Press firmly and make sure that the card is level all the way across. Then screw the slot bracket down. (Note: you could remove the fax/modem instead of the cover if you do not need the modem.)

For a USB interface option, just plug it in. When the drivers are installed (follow the directions), attach the wifi antenna (if needed). Try to identify available networks (in XP click Start > Control Panel > Network then go to the network wizard to add a new network). Use the network ID and password for your wireless router. (I assume there are other wireless devices and the router has been set up; many older models need to be attached to a computer via a wired ethernet port for the initial set up. Most models have an initial name and password that should be changed.)

I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, please provide more information about your computer's OS and available expansion options. Also indicate what router you are using.

How do I change from wired hookup to wireless? Bob


Instructions
Things You'll Need
Broadband modem
Router compatible with modem
Internal or external wireless network adapter
Phillips screwdriver
Suggest Edits
  1. Prepare the Network
  • Purchase and setup a wireless broadband router by interfacing it with your wired computer. Choose a router that is compatible with your broadband modem and that supports the wireless network type you desire.
  • Enable WPA or WPA-2 security, and change your router's default password. Give your SSID or wireless network a memorable name.
  • Connect your modem to the WAN (wide area network) port on your router.

  1. Install an Internal Card
  • Purchase a wireless network card that is compatible with the router you purchased and with your computer. For example, if you bought a 802.11 b/g router, do not purchase an 802.11 n adapter.
  • Shut down your computer. Remove all cables and peripheral devices.
  • Remove the left side panel while facing the front of the case. You may need to remove screws or to manipulate latches and notches. Consult your case or computer manufacturer's documentation if you are unsure of how to remove the panel.
  • Clip the metal part of the anti-static wrist bracelet to a metal object, and ******** the bracelet.
  • Locate an available PCI or PCI-Express slot. Unscrew the screw that secures the slot cover that corresponds with the slot, then remove the slot cover.
  • Line up the wireless adapter's pins with the slot. Insert the card until it clicks into place. Do not force the card into the slot, or you may damage the card's connectors. If you feel resistance, remove the card, line up the card with the slot again, and reinsert.
  • Secure the card with the slot cover screw. Reattach the side panel, and replace any screws you removed earlier.
  • Reinsert all cables, and plug in all peripherals. Boot the computer.
  • Allow Windows the opportunity to detect the card. It should automatically install the drivers for the card. If you have updated drivers, insert the disk and install according to on-screen instructions.
  1. Install an External Card
  • Boot up your computer.
  • Insert your external wireless adapter into the appropriate slot. For example, if you purchased a USB slot, insert it into a USB port.
  • Allow Windows the opportunity to detect the card. It should automatically install the drivers for the card. If you have updated drivers, insert the disk and install according to on-screen instructions
  • Complete Setup
  • Double-click the network icon in the task bar.
  • Highlight your wireless network. Windows will display the name you entered when setting up your router
  • Click the "Connect" button.
  • Enter and verify the security key you created when setting up the router. Click on "Connect."
If you have further query then try to let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi, I bought a house with some Niles HD 6 speakers and need to move them down the wall to install a new cabinet. I can't work out how to remove them from the wall to install them lower?


First remove the wire mesh grill with a curved pin or lever it out with a sharp kitchen knife. Then you will notice four black screws very close the groove into which the grill fits.Using a correct size + screwdriver unscrew all the four screw anticlockwise till you feel the whole speaker panel shake loose. Make sure somebody is holding the outer frame while you are doing it or it might suddenly fall. The are red and black spring clip connectors for the speaker wires. Disconnect them foe removing the speakers completely.

How to change a 2003 x-type jaguar head light bulb


Open your hood.Behind the head lamps you will see black plastic covers held with spring clamps. There is one on each side of the assembly (the outer clamps not visible). So reach in and undo the clamps to remove the covers. Disconnect the wire on the headlamp bulb and release the small spring clamps on each side of the bulb. It should come right out. Install the new H1 bulbs and make sure the dimple goes inside the little alignment hole in the housing for alingment. Slight twisting L & R will help you check this until you feel it insert) Install the small clamps. Install the connecting lead wire on the bulbs and install the covers. Make sure to place BOTH clamps on the covers. NOTE: the passenger side is really limited in room to remove the outer clamp. I recomend a long screwdriver to help release it. Re clamping the outer clamp will take some finesing to get a hold of it and bring it forward. I recomend looping a metal wire on the middle to help bring it out and pull it to clamp it.)

Black and white wire from monitor to motherboard came lose on hp pavilion zd8000 laptop. motherboard is DANT2DMB6A0 REV A. it looks to be a ground and power, but can't seem to find where it plugs in. where...


The black and white wire are the leads for the built in wireless card for internet and networking. Below is the manual for that particular laptop. The wireless card is accessed from a small panel on the bottom of the case. Usually held in place by two retaining screws. Lift off this cover, if you see a single card or slot with one bright retaining clip on either side, that is the wireless card(or slot if empty). The wires attach to the two small round sockets on the card. It is called a mini-pci card. Your manual is below, make sure to save a copy for yourself for future reference.....

Wire came loose on pavilion xe 734 that supplie power to hard dir


First of all these wires don't supply power to HDD. These wires are for indicator LEDs on the front
panel of the cabinet. One wire `power sw' is to switch on the system from the power button on front panel. `power led' wire is of the power led on the front panel. All these wires will be connected to the cluster of pins on one corner of the mother board. If you can see it will be indicated & printed near the cluster of pins on the mbd, that which pair of pins is meant for what connector. Try to correlate the names on connector with the print on the mbd.
