Problems with EVO500 mobo power pins

I recently obtained a evo500 mobo. I am kind of throwing a pc together with different odds and ends. So far I have an old 6x cd drive, on old 200w 20 pin psu, 3x 512 mb 133 mhz sticks, a 20 gb 2.5 in sata xbox 360 harddrive (ntfs reformatted of course), a 2.2 ghz pentium 4 cpu, and a AOpen QF50B 7-Bay ATX Computer Case. I bought a molex to p4 adapter for the p4 power supply, a 20 pin to 24 pin psu converter cable, and a sata to ide adapter to get everything nice and hooked up. Now I only have one problem, my mobo is set up to use a single plug type deal for the power button, reset button, etc.. but my computer case came with seperate plugs. One for the power led, one for the power button, one for the reset button etc.... . How can I tell which plug should go where as my mobo does not have them individually labeled? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I am unable to install the network card of compaq evo... although i had tried to install driver from hp website of evo300 and evo500 series. please provide the solution for this issue.


There are 3 possible Ethernet adapters for your model.
3COM - Click For DownloadBroadcom - Click For DownloadIntel - Click For Download
Assuming you are using the card that came with the model and not a third party expansion card one of these three drivers should be the driver you require. Most commonly Broadcom is used by HP/Compaq systems so that is probably the best one to start with, Intel second, 3Com last.

I can't find where the connections of the front panel are on the motherboard or where they go?


The eMachines T2893 desktop computer uses an Inte G845GVSR mobo. (MOtherBOard)

Intel Support>D845GVSR>Motherboard Manual,
(Intel's name - Product Guide),

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845gvsr/sb/cs-008823.htm

I would like you to left-click on the top file.
Click right on - Product Guide - PDF, in blue.

(File name underneath it is -
File Name: D845GVSR_Product Guide_English.pdf )

May take up to 30 seconds, before you see the first page.
(You will be staring at a blank screen until the first page comes up. The file is downloading in the background)

Took 5 seconds before I saw the first page, and an additional 12 to fully download, using a medium speed DSL connection.

The Front Panel header on the mobo is shown on Page 31. (C on the illustration. J9G1 on the mobo)

The Front Panel connections are on Page 32.

Barring that you cannot download this PDF file, or do not understand the manual, I will detail the Front Panel header connections.

Orienting the motherboard so we are both looking at it the same way;

The Processor is at the top, the ram memory slots are to the right side of the mobo, and the white PCI slots are to the bottom.

There are three PCI slots. The one closest to the Processor is PCI 1.
The one closest to the edge of the mobo is PCI 3.

To the far right of PCI 3 is the Front Panel header.
It's the header located closest to the Right side of the mobo, and the bottom edge, and is directly below the
CMOS battery.

There are two rows of pins.
Four across the top, Five across the bottom.

The top row of pins are numbered Evenly.
The bottom row of pins are numbered Odd.

Starting from the Left side of the mobo, going to the right, on the Top row,

Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. (There is No 10)

Starting from the Left side of the mobo, going to the right, on the Bottom row,

Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the Harddrive Activity LED
If you have a wire with a + sign on it (Positive) it goes to Pin 1.

B) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED.
(Pin 2 to the Green LED lamp, Pin 4 to the Yellow LED lamp, if applicable with your computer)

C) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch. (If applicable)
(Pin 5 is Ground)

D) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.
(Pin 8 is Ground)

E) Pin 9 is for the +5 Volt power.

(You are following Anti-Static precautions, right?)

Have any questions just post in a Comment.
(Believe upper right of your page)

PC will not power up. No fans, lights, anything.


Have you tried a different power cord? (longshot, I know, but it is one of the variables that you don't mention)

Have you tried a different A/C outlet?

When I start my pc it gose as far sa the page with icons and then stops cant load anything keyboard and mouse dont work


Unplug both the KB and the Mouse. Look at the pins inside at the end of the cord to make sure they are not bent. If they are, straighten them and try again. If NOT, try using a USB keyboard and Mouse. If that works, the PS2 connections on the MoBo are bad.

Virus (need to wipe cpu)


What you have to do is make a floppy disk with sata drivers on it and get a usb floppy drive, because its intel you need the matrix storage manager. get it from here:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=2101&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go!

Download the matrix storage manager and the read me file on instruction on how to install xp with extra drivers.

Any problems post back
