I don't know where the cords need to be connected on the monitor and hardrive


As confusing as it might be, this isn't really that complicated as there are not many choices. Although there may be extra cables you normally will only have two cables to connect to the monitor -- one for the video signal and the other power.

The power cable is usually black (sometimes grey) -- one end connects to the wall outlet the other end at the back of the monitor -- match the shape and there is only one way the cable pushes in.

The video cable is usually black but will normally have blue connectors or while connectors on each end. Both ends are the same. Connect one end to the monitor. There is only one connection that matches the shape and it only fits on one way. On the main computer box, again match the cable connection you have to the one with the same shape and size. Again it only fits on one way.

Plug in a keyboard and mouse. These days most have a USB connector (small rectangular) but can be plugged into any USB port available (on the front or back of the computer). They only go in one way so don't try to force it. If it doesn't work, flip the connector over and try again. This should be enough to get you up and running. Turn on the monitor power (usually a button on the front or side edge). Turn on the computer (usually a button on the front).

NO POWER COMING ON


The Acer Aspire E500 Desktop PC uses an Acer MBP2207024 motherboard,

http://www.ascendtech.us/acer-aspire-e500-mbp2207024-motherboard_i_mbacembp2207024.aspx

I'll be referring back to the photos of the motherboard, at the bottom of the page of the above link.

Start with the power cables coming from the Power Supply, to the motherboard.

1) 24-pin ATX main power cable, and corresponding connector on motherboard:

Middle and bottom photo. Look at the top left side. There is a whitish long connector, with 24 socket holes in it, on the motherboard.

Here is an average example of the power cable, and the connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

[Note* Color of connectors does Not matter ]

2) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable:

It's hard to see in the photos. Go to the bottom photo.
From the left side; look at the purple Keyboard port, and green Mouse port.
Go to the right to the blue VGA port. (15 socket holes. 3 rows of 5)

Now go to the stack of 3 ports to the right of the blue VGA port.
Two USB, then a Firewire port on top. Right behind this stack, is the square 4-socket hole, whitish 4-pin ATX +12 Volt connector.

Average example of motherboard connector, and corresponding power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

Note that on the male power cable connector, for the 24-pin power cable, and the 4-pin power cable, there is a Lock.
Shown more visibly in the middle photo of the above link.

This Lock acts like a see-saw on a playground. The top is squeezed in, and this action releases the hook at the bottom end, away from the tab on the female motherboard connector.

To ensure that these power cables are plugged in tight, the Lock needs to be in the lock position, over the tab on the female motherboard connector.

This power cable is power for the Processor.

That's it for the motherboard.
There should also be a SATA power cable coming from the Power Supply, to the SATA harddrive.

Average example of a SATA power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

Note*
There are two cables going to a SATA harddrive. The SATA power cable has the longer connector. It has 15 pins. Note that there is also an L shape on the inside of the connector. Lines up with the L shape on the harddrive.

The other cable is a Data cable. (information cable)
It has 7 pins, and is the shorter of the two.
Average example of a SATA data cable, and corresponding connectors on a motherboard,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SATA

Look at the photos to the top/right. The top photo shows an average SATA data cable. (Color does Not matter)

The photo also shows a Straight connector. This style of connector is usually used to plug into the motherboard. (Sometimes for SATA optical drives, also)

An Elbow shaped connector is usually used on the Harddrive side.

[ NOTE*

This is a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Shown connected to an older IDE (PATA) harddrive. It is also used on optical drives, and to computer case fans sometimes.

Point:
IF, your SATA harddrive has a provision on the back for a SATA power cable, AND a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, ONLY use just the SATA power cable.

Otherwise the SATA harddrive will BURN up.
May not happen immediately, but I assure you it will happen.

In the middle and bottom photos on the Ascendtech link, the SATA headers (Connectors) on the motherboard, are Orange, and at the Top/Right.
There are 4 of them.

The beauty of SATA:
Next to the SATA headers on the motherboard will be silkscreened a figure. SATA0, SATA1, SATA2, and SATA3.

Or it may have SATA1, SATA2, SATA3, and SATA4.

A harddrive should plug into SATA0, or SATA1.
HOWEVER, the beauty of SATA, is that you can plug the harddrive into ANY of the four SATA connectors on the motherboard, and BIOS will find it.

The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.

The rectangular block of plastic with pins sticking up out of it, on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

Sometimes abbreviated as F_PANEL, or FP1, or PANEL_1.

Looking at the Top motherboard photo, it is the blue rectangular connector, at the Bottom corner.
In the Bottom motherboard photo, it is all the way to the Bottom/Right corner.

(Middle photo all the way to the right corner)

The CPU Fan, (Central Processing Unit, or also known as Microprocessor, or Processor for short), cable connects to the small 3-pin whitish connector, that is towards the top of the motherboard, and above the 24-pin ATX main power cable connector.

The System Fan, (SYS_FAN), or computer case fan, connects to the small 3-pin connector to the Right, of the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt connector, on the motherboard.

Front Panel header pinout to follow in a Comment.

Burnt connector inside dell inspiron, first connector at motherboard (after power box) Can I fix it?? If so, can u help??


LOVE your user name!

I'll try to guide you the best that I can.
Sorry, first connector after Power Supply does me no good.

Let's look at a basic schematic of the motherboard for a Dell Inspiron 530s Desktop PC,

Dell Support > Inspiron 530s Desktop PC > Dell Inspiron 530s Series Owners Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/insp530s/en/OM/HTML/index.htm

I would like you to click on - Removing and Installing Parts
In the left column click on - System Board Components
{System Board = Motherboard }

This is a basic view of the motherboard with No hardware components installed.
It is also how the motherboard sits in your computer.

This is a pictorial view of the motherboard,

http://www.amazon.com/Dell-Motherboard-Inspiron-Systems-Compatible/dp/B003CO0WQS

Now, compare the Dell Support motherboard illustration, to the pictorial.
Looking to the far right in the illustration, the first connector is marked with the number 8.

On the pictorial it is the rectangular Black connector at the bottom/middle. (Next to the rectangular White connector)

This connector is for a Floppy Drive.
Is this the connector in question?

Is it the white rectangular connector next to it?
This connector is for the main power cable coming from the Power Supply.
In the illustration is is marked by the number 7.

This is a basic example, of the power cable coming from the Power Supply (power box), that connects to the white connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

{Note* Color of the main power cable's connector does not matter. It can be any color }

IF this connector on the motherboard is burnt, you may wish to stop.
Electricity has more than likely fried the entire motherboard. May also include the Processor, Ram Memory, Harddrive, and a graphics card, if installed.

I know. I'm a 'ray of sunshine'.

How could this connector be burnt?
Four ways I know of;

1) Lightning storm, or power outage. Also could have happened if the power utility company was doing some changes in the power lines, utility pole transformer, etc.
(No. The utility company cannot be held responsible. I don't agree with that)

2) Power cable was not plugged in tightly. Lock on side was not locked into place.
Air gap created in-between the connecting contacts in the power cable connector, and the motherboard connector, created resistance.

Resistance creates heat. Burnt connector/s will result, and perhaps worse.
{Could also create a small power surge }

3) At one time Dell was a Proprietary computer manufacturer.
This means Dell wanted THEIR replacement parts used on THEIR computers.

If an aftermarket computer component is installed, Dell cannot warranty their computer.
Using THEIR parts in THEIR computers, Dell could.
However Dell computer users did not wish to pay the price of the Dell replacement parts.
The aftermarket parts were cheaper, of good quality, and readily available.

If we use a Power Supply for an example;

Dell had the motherboard manufacturer switch the socket holes around, in the Motherboard connector, for the main power cable.

They also had the Power Supply manufacturer switch the pins around, in the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector, to match.

The aftermarket power supply manufacturer built the power cables, and connectors, to follow industry standards. Dell did not.

This means if you plug an aftermarket power supply's main power cable, into a Dell motherboard that was built proprietary, the motherboard usually fried. The only sign may be a burnt connector on the motherboard.

Could also have fried the Processor, Ram Memory, Harddrive, optical drive/s, and a graphics card, IF installed.

[ Looking at the Playtool link again, look at the photo to the far right.
See the different colored wires?
The color coding indicates what the wire carries as far as Voltage, or if it is a Ground wire.

1) Orange insulated wires = 3.3 Volts
2) Red wires = 5 Volts
3) Yellow wires = 12 Volts
(All are DC. In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC)

4) The Black wires are Ground wires

(The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire. Abbreviated as PS_ON)

The Orange, Red, and Yellow wires are power wires.
The Black wires are Ground wires.
Guess what happens if a 12 Volt wire is connected to a Ground?
(Instead of going to a 12 Volt connection)

Things start frying.

{To state connections in the main power cable connector, and it's respective connector on the motherboard, correctly;

Looking at the middle photo you see the connection end of the main power cable.
Plastic connector with individual plastic rectangular shapes, that have metal 'tubes' inside each of them.

The motherboard connector has socket holes to match the individual plastic rectangular shapes.
Inside the socket holes are metal pins. Contact pins.
The contact pins go inside the metal 'tubes'.

The metal 'tube' is a Molex Socket Terminal,

http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Molex/36664-0002/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMvz8LftK4jerhl0r50z%252bUNRzFCdHbJqUTU%3d


4) IF the Power Supply, ( looking at it from the Back of the computer), has a rocker switch, or slide switch, to set the incoming AC power to 110 Volts, or 220 Volts;
And the power supply switch was set to 110, and plugged into 220 Volts,
the motherboard connector would fry.

Plus the Power Supply. May also of course include Processor, Ram Memory, Motherboard, Harddrive, optical drive/s, and graphics card IF installed.


Replace the connector? No
Could be;
A) Replace the Power Supply. Still no?
B) Replace the Motherboard. Still no?
C) Replace the Ram Memory. Still no?
D) Replace the Processor. Computer operates but no graphics?
E) Graphics card installed? Replace graphics card

Unless you can test each individual component, and the cost is not much less, or equal to a new computer, the obvious choice would be to purchase a new, or good used computer.

Recently changed the power supply. There is no video output. Where can I download the motherboard schematic?


Right here at HP Support,

1) Motherboard Specifications:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00361570&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=459491

Scroll the page down to the top view illustration, and photo.

A) The motherboard uses a 24-pin ATX main power cable.
In the illustration the connector on the motherboard is on the right side.
It is an empty rectangular box with ATX Power Connector in it.

On the motherboard photo it is the rectangular white connector with two rows of 10 socket holes, and is to the bottom right of ram memory slot 2.

Another example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

Ensure that the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector, is locked into place on the motherboard's connector. The lock tab on the main power cable must be hooked over the tab on the motherboard connector. This ensures that the main power cable is in all the way.

B) The motherboard uses a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable.
The connector on the motherboard is a white square connector, with 4 socket holes.

In the illustration it is to the bottom left corner of the Processor socket (LGA 775), and has ATX12V underneath it. This power cable's connector also has a lock tab.
Another example of a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

Power TO the motherboard, that's it.

Power FROM the motherboard:

C) System Fan, and CPU (Processor) Fan.

Abbreviated as SYS_FAN, and CPU_FAN to the bottom left of the ATX12V connector.
(4-pin ATX +12 Volt connector on the motherboard)

The System Fan is the computer case fan.
CPU Fan is the Processor fan.

D) The four SATA headers on the bottom right in the photo, (Blue, Orange, Black, and White), are for the SATA data cables.
They connect to a SATA harddrive, or SATA optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)
(They are an L shaped connector inside, with 7 pins inside)

Power for these SATA devices comes from the Power Supply.
The Power Supply has SATA power cables.
Example of an average SATA power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

(L shaped connector with 15 pins inside. The longer connector between a SATA data cable, and a SATA power cable )

Did you forget which SATA data cable plugs into where, on the motherboard?
Don't sweat it.

The beauty of SATA is that you can plug the harddrive's SATA data cable into ANY of the SATA headers (Connectors) on the motherboard, and BIOS will find it.
Same with a SATA optical drive, or any SATA device, for that matter.

IF, your SATA harddrive has a place on the back for BOTH, a SATA power cable, and a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, ONLY use the SATA power cable.

Using both will eventually burn out the SATA harddrive!

Example of a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, (Misnomered as 'Molex'),

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

From there the main optical drive, (CD/DVD drive), has to have the audio cable plugged into the audio connector on the motherboard.
(Plus the power cable, and data cable, of course)

In the illustration this is the header down in the very far left corner, and located towards the bottom edge.
It has CD_IN marked underneath it.

In the photo it is the Black rectangular connector in the very far left corner.

If you didn't connect the 4-pin +12 Volt power cable, your Processor isn't getting any power.
No Processor operating, No computer.

No Signal on monitor.
(No video signal)

I cannot install the above mentioned scanner since the driver is unspecified


IF IT IS USB BARCODE SCANNER, DO THESE:

1.

Locate the USB connector on the bar code scanner. Bar code scanners, like other computer peripherals, connect to the computer by way of a data cable. At the end of the data cable, most likely opposite the scanner itself, should be a small rectangle-shaped plastic and metal connector. This connector is the USB terminal that will plug in to the computer's USB port.
2.
Locate the USB port on the computer. The USB port, whether on the computer or a peripheral device, will be rectangular in shape and feature either the letters "U S B" or a small network diagram showing two circles, a square, and an arrow.
3.
Connect the USB cable to the computer or peripheral device. Once the USB connector and port have been identified, push the USB connector firmly but gently into the available USB port. USB connectors are keyed so that they can only be inserted the correct way; if you feel solid resistance while inserting the USB connector, remove the connector from the port, turn it over and plug it in.
4.
Install bar-code reading software. While the bar code scanner can scan the bar code into the machine, software must decipher the meaning of the code. Bar code scanners, if purchased new, should include a version of proprietary bar code software compatible with your scanner. If your scanner did not come with software, or if it is missing the installation disc, bar code software may be purchased on the Internet from sites like WaspBarcode.com.



TO INSTALL A SERIAL BAR CODE SCANNER, DO THESE:




1.

Locate the serial connector on the bar code scanner. Bar code scanners, like other peripherals, connect to the computer by way of a data cable. At the end of the serial cable should be a rectangular, typically male connector. The cable may be pinned with nine, sixteen, or more pins depending on the design of the scanner.
2.
Locate the serial port on the computer. Most computers have at least one serial port, usually found on the back of the machine. The port will be female, maybe blue in color, rectangular in shape, and should be approximately the same size (or slightly smaller) as the serial connector.
3.
Connect the serial cable to the computer or connected peripheral. When both the connector and port have been identified, push the serial connector firmly but gently into the port. Like USB connectors, serial connectors are keyed so that they can only be inserted the correct way; if you feel solid resistance while inserting the connector, remove the connector from the port, turn it over and plug it in. Do not use excessive force while pushing on the serial connector, as it is possible to bend the connecting pins and damage the connector.
4.
Install bar-code reading software. While the bar code scanner can scan the bar code into the machine, software must interpret the meaning of the code. Bar code scanners, if purchased new, should include a version of proprietary bar code software compatible with your specific scanner. If your scanner did not come with software, or if it is missing the installation disc, bar code software may be purchased on the Internet from sites like WaspBarcode.com.

Repositioning the screen makes the computer cut out. it seems to only work when the screen is tilted far back.


The connection from the monitor(screen) to the mother board is loose or there is a nick in the wires. The wires are tucked in one of the hinges.

most of them are easily found. You could take it to your nearest radioshack and they should be able to point you in the direction of a new cable.
