Ecs 945g m3 motherboard manual

IF the computer starts up, runs smoothly for up to 5 minutes, then shuts down, it might be a heat problem. Firstly disconnect all fans, then using a blower, blow out all the dust inside the computer. switch on and test. Reply if problem is solved or not.

Hi where i downlaod drivers for motherboard ECS 945g-m3

I accedentally knocked the power wires off inside the big box i cant think of the name on my emachine w3507 how do i put back together

Power On switch, (Button), wires from the front panel that go to the motherboard?

I could really use the name of the motherboard, to try to get you this information.
I don't have an eMachines W3057 sitting in front of me, at the moment, and eMachines Support never states what motherboard is being used.

Usually they are made by TriGem, or ECS, or Intel.

HOWEVER, (Not shouting), from my data bank of information, it is stated that the motherboard used in an eMachines W4022, is version of the ECS 945G-M3.

IF, my information IS correct, this is ECS Support, and the download page for the Motherboard Manual, for the ECS 945G-M3 motherboard,

Go down to the heading - Download.
To the right you will see - Taiwan, USA, Europe, and China.
These are the download server links.

You Left-click on the country name, that is nearest your country you are in.
(I have always found China to be the best for me, and I am in the USA)

After you click on the download server link name, a small window will come up on the right.
My advice is to Left-click on the circle to the left of - Save File.
(This will save the file to your computer. Then you can look at it anytime you want, and won't have to download it again)

Now go to the bottom of the window, and click on OK.

This is a Zip file. A Zip file is used to compress information, so it can be sent over the internet easier. You have to unzip the file.

If you do Not, have your downloads set to go to your My Documents folder, (Windows XP. Documents for Vista), this will go to your desktop screen.

(Windows XP: Left-click on Start, then click on My Documents. In the My Documents folder, this file may have gone to another folder. Folder name is Downloads. Double-click on it to open it)

The file will have 945G-M3 next to it.

When you see the file name, Double-click on it. This will open the Unzip Wizard. Go to the top left of the page, and left-click on -
Extract All Files.
Left-click on Next, Next, and Finish.

You will now see 945G-M3 (1.0b) next to an Adobe PDF icon.
Double-click right on this file name.

You are now looking at the Motherboard Manual.

The connector on the motherboard you are looking for is the Front Panel Header. (Connector on a motherboard is a header) Also known as PANEL1.

Go to Page 20. (Page 12 on the document)
Looking at the top of the PDF file you will see a blue Down Arrow. Click on it to go to Page 20.

The small white squares represent the pins on the connector. The black rectangles shown that go from pin to pin, represent the connector on the wires.

If somehow you cannot download the PDF Motherboard Manual, or are having trouble understanding the Front Panel Header connections, allow me to explain where the wires go.

Let's orient the motherboard position so that we are both looking at it the same way. Same direction.

Processor at the top. Ram Memory slots to the right.
The PANEL1 header is down on the very bottom Right.

The header is rectangular in shape. It has Green, Red, Yellow, and Blue areas on it.

There are two rows of pins.
4 across the top.
5 across the bottom.

The pins are numbered.
Starting at the Top Left, and going across to the Right;

Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. (There is No Pin 10. Just an empty spot)

Starting at the Bottom Left, going across to the Right;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

1) Pins 6 and 8, are for the Power On switch. (Switch is behind your Power On button)

2) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On light.

3) Pins 1 and 3 are for the Harddrive activity light. (HDD on the wire connector)

4) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch, (Behind the Reset button)

5) Pin 9 is Not used. Nothing connects here.

Would appreciate hearing how this comes out.

Look at the schematic that should have come with it. The pins will have markings on them. They may be letters, numbers or a combination.

Motherboard not working correctly.

The way that I solved the problem was to unhook each and every connection to the motherboard except for the 4-pin and 24-pin power supply connections, the processor, the cpu fan and the power on switch connectors, once I have done that, then I plugged in the power supply and turned it on, in which that worked! After that, I would hook everything up to the motherboard one piece at a time, in which after each piece I would turn the power supply on again to see if that was the problem. Starting with the hard drive, the memory sticks and then the DVD drive, and found out that was the problem. The cable between the DVD drive and motherboard was the wrong cable for that motherboard. I will purchase a new cable and see if that works!
