Dont know where ground wires go

Time to Perform: 10 to 15 minutes.

Preparation / Warnings:

If you have not already done so, please read the section on general installation and assembly tips. Pay particular attention to the notes about connecting cables.

For reference, you may want to read this section describing the cables and connectors coming from the power supply, and/or this section describing the connections on the motherboard.

Motherboards and system cases vary.

Your motherboard may not have all the items I mention here, and the same holds true for your case.

Furthermore, you may find that your case and motherboard don't match in every situation; for example, some cases have a turbo button and some do not, and some motherboards have a connection for a turbo button and some don't.

Watch out for "off by one" errors when attaching cables to pin headers. In particular, some motherboards combine several pin connectors into a larger block.

The individual connections are the same, the motherboard just physically groups the pins together into a larger matrix. Be careful when working with these as making a mistake is much easier to do. Refer to the manual.

If the system is in a tower case, it is much easier to perform this procedure with the case resting on its side.

LEDs have two wires and are unidirectional, so they will not work if attached backwards.

You need to connect the positive lead from the case to the positive pin on the motherboard, and the same with the negative.

Unfortunately, the case connector almost never has the positive and negative labeled. Fortunately, attaching them backwards will usually not cause any damage; the LED just won't work.

One tip you can use: most cases employ for each LED one colored wire (green, yellow, red, orange, blue) and another wire that is either black or white.

When this is the case, usually the colored wire is positive (signal) and the black or white wire is negative (ground). This isn't always true, but it's better than a random guess in most cases.

hope this helps

Replace motherboard fujitsu e8020

You take the laptop apart. Completely apart. I mean every piece of it. And you better make sure you replace it with the exact board or you'll be sorry. You might as well get some cups and label them for all the screws you pull out so you'll know where they came from. You might want to have a digital camera handy to take pictures before you pull something out. And once you've got the motherboard taken you, you'll need to get the CPU out of the old motherboard and put it into the new one. You'll have to do the same with the HeatSink if the new motherboard does not come with one. And you will need to buy some Thermal Paste to put on the CPU and Heat Sink to make sure they don't overheat. After you've got it all done you'll have to put everything back. Now would be a good time to pray to Allah, Budah, God, Jehovah, Jesus or whoever it is you serve. Because You're gonna need it to hope it works :)

I don't know where to connect the sable cable from the hard drive to the motherboard.

I'm not sure what a Sable Cable is, but if you're talking about a cable that from the hard drive to the motherboard look real close with a flashlight and the slots are labeled on the board. Normally if that is the only hard drive it will go into Slot 1, or IDE 1 or SATA 1. Sometimes they start numbering them with zero and if that's the case put it in 0.

Need to reconnect internal video cables

I don't understand what you are trying to say, but this is what I think you're saying. The onboard video card went bad and now you need to put in another one so that you can connect the monitor.

If that's true, you don't put another video card on the motherboard. You go out and purchase a Video Card that goes into one of the available PCI Slots on the back of the computer. It goes inside, but sticks out the back so you can connect the cable from the monitor to it.

How do you replace motherboard?

The first step to replacing a motherboard in a desktop computer is to remove the old motherboard. That may sound trivial, but it's literally half of the job, and I'm splitting removal and installation onto two pages so it doesn't get too big. In order to remove the motherboard, you not only have to disconnect all connections between the motherboard and components in the case, you should also remove any cables that are simply in the way. Remember to touch the metal edge of the case to ground yourself from time to time. Some techs like to leave the power supply plugged in for a ground, but that's pretty crazy with ATX technology, since if the switch on the back of the supply goes on, the power supply will be live. I unplug the power supply and avoid dancing on the rug to generate static electricity.

Next we remove the data cable from the hard drives. In a larger case, I might have left the data cables installed on the drive end, but there's very little clearance between the motherboard and the drive cages, and you don't want to start wrestling the old motherboard out because you didn't prepare properly. It's just like working on a car, if you don't get enough stuff out of the way to have room to get a wrench in and see what you're doing, you're just wasting time in the long run. Keep in mind that we're replacing the motherboard, not just taking the old one out, and you don't want to bash the new motherboard around as you're installing it.

Now it's time to remove the PCI adapters and the video card. All of the adapters that mount in motherboard slots are secured to the back rail of the case with single screw each, though the screws are often missing in systems that have been worked on. You may as well take all the screws out at the same time and put them aside in a glass or any other small container to keep them from getting too lost.

You should always handle adapters by the the edges and by the metal bracket when removing them from the motherboard. Again, you can't race through this part like you're just waiting to get to the main course, because you're going to need to put all these adapters back in after you replace the motherboard, unless the new motherboard has those features integrated in the I/O core. You should especially avoid touching the gold contacts on the card edge that pulls out of the motherboard slots, because the oil from your fingers is an electrical insulator.

Standard ATX motherboards feature a single 10x2, 20 pin connector for the power supply. The connection features a sort of a simple latch which is released from the nub on the motherboard connector by depressing the top of the latch (just below my thumb). You can also see the nub on the motherboard connector, on the side near the motherboard edge. It can take a bit of force to pull the connection out of the motherboard even once it's release, since there are 20 tight connection, so be prepared to use your off hand to hold the motherboard down if the edge lifts as you remove the connector.

Now we get to removing the data cables from the old motherboard. If we had more room in the case, I would have left them attached to the drives on the other end. If you have trouble remembering where everything goes when you go to install the new motherboard, I'd recommend the book I write for McGraw-Hill, "Build Your Own PC," which uses extensive photographic illustrations to detail the complete assembly of three state-of-the-art PCs. Note that I'm using both hands to pull out the ribbon cable, holding it as near to the connector as possible. High quality ribbon cables often include a pull loop or tab so you can remove them without stressing the cable.

The motherboard is actually mounted in the case with a series of screws through the motherboard, seven in this case, all of which must be removed. About the worst thing that can happen when you're replacing a motherboard is that one of the screws will turn and turn without releasing. Normally, this is due to the screw having been over-tightened in a brass standoff, which comes unscrewed from the motherboard pan and remains attached to the screw. If you think this is happening, proceed to removing the rest of the screws first so you won't place undo strain on the motherboard by flexing it up. If the standoff thread in the motherboard pan is stripped, you can take off the other side of the case and grab it with vise grips from the back.

The final set of connections we have to deal with are the front panel leads that attach to the motherboard. This includes the LEDs for hard drive activity and power status, the case speaker, and most importantly, the power switch. ATX systems use a logic switch to tell the motherboard, which is always receiving a trickle of power from the ATX power supply, to power full on. These are all small format connectors that easily pull off, and frankly, the power switch is the only one you really need to reconnect when you replace the motherboard, the other's are bells and whistles.

Once all the connections to the motherboard are removed and the screws are all out, you can lift the motherboard a little and pull it away from the back of the case, where the connectors of the I/O core protrude through the shield (left). Once you disengage the I/O core, you can lift the motherboard right out of the case. I usually hold onto a PCI slot and the CPU heatsink, there's just no room to get your fingers on the edges of the motherboard in most cases (below). That pretty much covers the removal phase of replacing a motherboard, so skip over to how to install a new motherboard if you're ready..

How to change mainboard battery?

Most PC users don't think much about the CMOS battery until their computer shows signs of losing its BIOS settings on boot up. If you tend to upgrade rather than replace your PC, replacing the CMOS battery every couple of years makes sense.
Likewise, if you purchase a used PC, battery replacement is a good idea unless the PC is less than two years old. It's just one more preventive step you can take to prevent troubles in the future.
If you have never replaced a CMOS battery before, you can find step-by-step instructions below.
In most cases, frequent CMOS errors are a sign of a dead battery. The CMOS battery maintains your settings while your PC is powered off. You can easily replace the battery yourself.

  1. Boot your PC and enter its setup mode.
  2. Write down all of the settings from the various BIOS menus. Click this link to learn more about this procedure.
  3. Power off your PC.
  4. Open the case of your computer

  5. Locate the battery on the motherboard.
    cmosreplace_4.jpg Figure 4. Battery location on the motherboard. The layouts of the components differ on different motherboards, so you'll have to consult your motherboard user manual for specifications about the battery and its location.
    This is a close-up view of the battery on the motherboard.
    cmosreplace_5.jpg Figure 5. Typical CMOS battery. The most common type of batteries used in modern PCs is coin-shaped lithium/manganese-dioxide battery that looks like a large watch battery.
  6. Obtain a replacement battery from a local or online computer parts dealer.
  7. Remove the old battery.
    cmosreplace_6.jpg Figure 6. Removing the old battery.
  8. Replace it with the new one, as shown on the picture below.
    cmosreplace_7.jpg Figure 7. Replacing the battery.
  9. Document the date of replacement for future reference.
  10. Replace the case and power on the PC.
  11. Enter the setup mode of your PC.
  12. Reenter the settings you have written down from the various setup menus.
  1. Don't forget to observe proper anti-static precautions when working inside the case of your PC.
  2. If you can't see your battery right away, try removing expansion cards or unplugging cables. The majority of newer motherboards use lithium batteries that look like large watch batteries.
If the battery is already dead and you receive messages saying "CMOS checksum error", skip Step 1 and Step 2.

Does not power up at all


If your machine doesn't start at all that means:
1. your Power Supply Unit is damaged so you have to replace it;
2. a contact/wire from the power plug-in might be broken - this case you have to open your laptop case and to check it [it where the Power Unit jack is inserted];
3 [THE WORST OF ALL!] your motherboard is fried...

Check each one apart the order they were mentioned.

Good luck!
