I want a motherboard jumper setting table


You'll need to open the case on your PC; locate the manufacturer name and model number of the motherboard and then use an online search engine by typing in <motherboard> (without the arrows) with the model number. You should be able to find a manual from third party sources or by going to the manufacturer's website to see if the manual is archived.

You can locate the MOBO information at either one of these locations:
  • RAM slots
  • CPU socket
  • or between the PCI slots
MOBO model numbers are usually a collection of numbers and letters between 5 and 7 digits long.

If you have a problem located the model number and manufacturer:

Run the utility; depending on the speed of your processor, it could take seconds or about a minute to pull up the info. <Click> on the mainboard tab, it'll list the manufacturer's name and model number of the MOBO.

A third way to locate MOBO information, Open the <RUN> dialog box from the start menu or by pressing the windows icon key and the letter R simultaneously.

Type <MSinfo32> (without the arrows) and press <enter>

The BIOS ID will be displayed- sometimes manufacturer info and model number will be displayed.

If not, you will be able to determine the BIOS as being either AWARD or AMI (American Megatrends, Inc.); and from there, be able to decode the ID number to a specific manufacturer.

  • AWARD: first five digits indicate the chipset & the following two digits identifies the manufacturer; you'll have to go online and search who that two digit manufacturer is.
  • AMI: the MOBO manufacturer is Identified by the last four digits in the third group of numbers.

How do i find my product


If you need to identify your motherboard (the model number), you can do one of the below three things.
Identifying through Windows or other utility
Documentation
Visually identifying
If you're trying to identify the motherboard for any of the reasons below, view these links for additional related information.
Motherboard form factor
Chipset or driver update
Product Listing or specifications
Replacement or repair
Identifying through Windows or other utility
First option is to view the manufacturer and model number in your Windows system, using the System Information utility. To access this utility, follow the steps below.
1.Click Start
2.Open All Programs, Accessories, System Tools and click System Information.
This utility provides a good bit of information about your computer. On the System Summary screen, you will find the motherboard manufacturer (System Manufacturer) and motherboard model (System Model). For example, for a computer with a MSImotherboard, the manufacturer would be MICRO-STAR INTERNATIONAL and a System Model of MS-7599. The Model is the model number of the motherboard.
Note: If your computer is an OEM computer, such as a Dell or Hewlett Packard, the model number may be the model number of your computer and not motherboard. For these computers, we suggest referring to the technical documentation for the model of the computer. These documents can be downloaded directly from the computer manufacturer.
Documentation
The documentation or technical notes for your computer or motherboard also include the motherboard information. PDF versions of these documents can be downloaded from thecomputer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer website.
Visually identifying
Finally, every computer motherboard has a silk screened name of the model and the manufacturer printed on the motherboard. For example, in the picture below, this motherboard has the model name printed above the memory slots. Click the image below to get a larger view of this picture.
c:\users\floyd~1.sta\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image001.jpg
Tip: If you are unable to locate a manufacturer or model number of the motherboard, but are able to locate an FCC identification number, it is recommended that you perform an FCC search using that number. Additional information about FCC numbers and how to search for information about an FCC number can be found on our FCC dictionary definition page.

Cpu fan not working


This is a simple fix. Just open up the case and you'll see the motherboard. Sometimes the FAN will be there just sitting on top of the CPU either secured by screws or by some latching mechanism. The fan will also have one cable that plugs somewhere on the motherboard. If you can't see the fan clearly then there might be some other component that you will have to remove to get to it. You can get on eBay and put in your computer's name and model and find a replacement fan. Just put in the search Acer Power 1000 CPU Fan and you'll see fans for $35, unfortunately they have to come from Hong Kong, so be patient or look elsewhere.

Trying to Install New Motherboard in Acer computer


The new motherboard should have came with a manual, that manual should identify all connection points on the motherboard. If you did not receive a manual, I would say that you did not get a new motherboard. If you got an exact replacement for your motherboard, you should be able to find the correct supporting documents on the Acer website. If it is a different motherboard than you had originally, then you might find supporting documents on the motherboard manufacturer's website. You will need to identify the motherboard by manufacturer and model #.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

Motherboard


This is kind of a tough one, so I'll give you what I can. Open the case and locate the largest board ( the motherboard) and painted on the motherboard (with usually white lettering paint) there should be the name of the manufacturer. Some of the majors are Asus, Intel, Biostar, Abit, Foxconn, Gigabyte, evga just to name a few. There should be a model number painted somewhere on the board in smaller lettering as well. If not paint, look for a thin somewhat long sticker towards the perimeter of the board which contains a model number and a serial number. If you can find a model number but no vendor name, do a google search on the model number and the name might pop-up. If this doesn't get you anywhere, your next step is to identify the sound chip itself. This isn't as daunting as it sounds, but will take a bit of time. To identify the sound chip look on the motherboard, and write down the information on each chip. You don't need to write down any information for chips that have heat sinks (like the processor, graphics, sometimes the bridge chips) will only leave a few. Then do a google search one by one until you hit on one that is a sound chip. Then do a google search for drivers for that chip. Hope this gets you started.
