Question about Acer Power F2 (APF2BU3500) PC Desktop

1 Answer

No audio I had to disconnect the usb, audio and mic board that is located on the lower front part of the tower . The usb plug got messed up and was shorting out, It finally caused the computer to shut down and would not boot back up. So I unplug it from the mother board. Since I did that I have had no sound. I believe that I need to put jumpers on the motherboard to get the sound to work agian, but I do not know where to put them. Can anyone help me with this?

My son tried to put a usb lead into my pc the wrong way and he bent all copper pins inside is it easy and cheap to repair or could i connect the tower to my laptop???? theres a hard one for you teckno


No, it isn't hard.

Wrapping your mind around Quantum Mechanics, and String Line theory, is a little tough; though. lol!

Will make sense in a moment.

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
Those are Front Panel USB ports.

On the motherboard are USB headers.
Small rectangular shaped pieces of plastic, that have contact pins sticking up.

EACH USB header will support TWO USB ports in the Front Panel.

Therefore; there will be two cables coming from two USB ports, in the Front Panel; and connect to ONE USB header on the motherboard.

IF, you feel the contact pins in the USB ports in the Front Panel, may be Touching each other; I strongly advise disconnecting the cables TO them.

Disconnect from motherboard.

Why?
Because if they touch each other, it will short the USB header out; on the motherboard.
This = No.

Then just use the USB ports on the back of the computer.

!O_O!

This is to save money, Mark; and save your computer.

Going further; If there are enough funds available, then I suggest replacing the Front Panel I/O/USB/Audio Control Panel Board,

Connect desktop to laptop to do what?
For USB port availability? IMHO that is like shooting yourself in the foot.

Also, how do you propose to accomplish this?

The USB ports in the Front Panel, are for ease of accessibility.
(As the young tyke has found, lol!)

Connecting a laptop greatly detracts from this.
Jus sayin'.

Where does the Microphone plug in to the Dell Vostro200


Depending on the chassis-style of your Vostro 200 (Slim-line or Tower), you may have one or more options for installing a microphone.
See below for instructions:
A. Slim-Line Model
There are two locations on this model (by default).
dd21be3.jpg
Front: You have the power button, then 2 x USB ports, 1 x Headphone jack-out, and 1 x Microphone jack-in.
c53ea7f.jpeg
Rear: There is a block of six audio connectors, looking only at the bottom 3 (red, green & blue).
Red = Microphone jack-in Green = Speaker/Audio jack-out Blue = Audio jack-in

B. Tower Model
There is one location on this model (by default):
f0bc025.jpg
Rear: There is a block of six audio connectors, looking only at the bottom 3 (red, green & blue).
Red = Microphone jack-in Green = Speaker/Audio jack-out Blue = Audio jack-in

Not audio from de front , went i plug audifon fron the fron theres no audio


That's cause the front audio connectors are not connected.. To do this open up the tower.. Now locate the wires from the front connector.. Its labled j audio.. Now on the main board there is a jack for it,, some pins labled audio as well if its not labled then look for the pins in the same fashion of the jack.. If u see some plastic jumpers bridiging 2 pins remove it.. Plug in your front audio connector.. That's it your done..

Because there are so many different case and motherboard combinations sometimes it can be difficult following the instructions for connecting the front panel, USB header and audio header.

Below is a few generic guide that should stop some of the confusion with the labels on the wires.

My microphone not working on my dell xps 420 vista system





double click on the speaker and make sure that the mic does not have the mute box with an x in it.

I am pretty certain you have a card in your computer for it mentions a 7.1 speaker system.
If you put your service code in to do a search for drivers you will get the correct ones for your particular machine. Download install and reboot.
If you are not using six speakers and one sub woofer then the pink one in the back is the mic

Tower top mounted USB portss


The cables from the front panel USB connectors have a key in them that will line up with the missing pin on the board's USB headers. Just line up the connectors and plug them onto the board. It doesn't matter if you use USB1 on the board for the plug marked USB1.

Headphones with mic / external speakers


Does your computer have front audio ports? If so, you can just plug it in there. Otherwise you need a single male 2 dual female converter to plug into the speaker port.

Pc desktop front panel audio out /mic in doesnt work


what kind of panel and what kind of computer.
Sometimes the mic in on the monitor must be connected from the back of the display to the mic in of the PC
If the monitor has a usb interface as well it may need new drivers.

Verify all your connections and get back to me with the model numbers.

Hi i have a problem connecting the front pannel mic and standard audio connections to my winfast k8m890m2ma motherboard the manual shows where the 8 pin "front audio connector" is like this...


It is a bit of a problem when you have single connectors but here goes. You use the Front Audio connectors. The manual says you have :::.:
If you turn the board round until the dots are the same way round as above. Working from left to right.
Bottom row. MicIn, MicBios, SpkoutR, empty,SpkoutL
Top row GND, empty, returnR, blank space, returnL. Now this is the tricky bit. Try the power if it works OK. Because the board and the case manufacturer work to different descriptions, try this as an alternative. You may have to swap over the two connectors for GND and Mic Bios.
