    Without knowing the exact model of your PC I can only give you a generic answer. There should be a place along the edge of the board with two or three prongs sticking up next to the letters "PWR".

The wires from the on-off switch only go to the power supply. From the power supply there will either a 10 or 14 pin connector that is plugged into the motherboard.

I have emachine t seris t2862 desktop and I donnot know how to connect power swich in mother board please help me


On the motherboard there will be a small set of connectors marked FPANEL, next to each of these will be a set of letters (usually PW, RES, HDD, MSG) and an earth pin, From the power switch you will see a two wire set normally black and white ending in a connector, this connects to the PW pins on the FPANEL

My computer wont turn on


take out the psu completely from the cpu/tower, plug in the power cord,if there is a switch on the psu turn it on, next locate the main power connector (24pin) and find green wire,take a piece of wire and insert it into the green wire connector,next touch the other end of the wire to the psu outer case or a black wire on the main connector,if all is well the psu will turn on,if you have a dc voltage tester check the voltages on the red and black wires on molex connector...5vdc,yellow and black...12vdc.if ok look at the main board and inspect the capacitors to see if they are swollen, if ok
replace psu and disconnect hdd,cd/dvd,floppy ect from main board only leave memory,processor and video, power on if ok shut off and reconnect hdd, power on, if ok shutoff and connect floppy, if ok power off and connect cd/dvd drive.during this testing you will know what is bad.let me know how it turns out.email; arjoon.ken@gmail.com

Need wire schematics for cnx-183 board


No you need a flashlight magnifing glass / open up the case and on the mother board usually on the bottom right side close to wires to the on switch will be one or mor groups of 6-8 pins with USB clearly marked under them. match them up with the plug as there is a blank if you look close.

on some mother boards there may be a connection in the middle left of the board.. bottom right is the most used.

Installed an Upgrated Mother Brd,in my Hp Desktop Tower,but the power Switch receptacle in the New Mother Brd has 16 pns


You need to track the wires from the case front panel to thier locations: one will be your power switch, one your reset, one hard drive activity light, and one your power light. You want to note and label which light or switch they go to then go to the new motherboards manual and plan which wires need to go where.
the front panel switches : reset and power switch- these are momentary switches so it doesnt matter which way they go.
hard drive activity and power light- these should have a colored wire and a black or white. the colored wire will be your + side.

Wiring a P4M80-M4 mother board


You can download the manual for the motherboard here, just click on the "manual" link:

http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en-us/mb/driver.php?S_ID=246

This will list the front panel connections, which are 2 pins. Each of the jumpers, what you are calling clips, will connect two of the pins. Most cases have the jumpers labeled, i.e. power, reset, etc. But if they are not, it is usually: red/white = HDD led; green/white = power led; red/black = speaker; black/green = power switch; and black/white = reset. But your case may use a different wiring spec, but should list somewhere which wire is for which function.

No power no light


Could be either one, or it could be the toggle switch.

Start with the easiest first to check. Unplug the power toggle switch from the mainboard and take a screwdriver or something and short out those two pins to see if it starts the pc. if it does, then your pc case switch is just bad.
If that's not the problem, check the power supply next.

Jumper the ATX 20 pin power cable's green wire to any black, just to make sure the power supply is working. The fans in the power supply will turn on along with anything else hooked up.

To jumper the power supply use a section of wire or a bread twisty (with the insulation removed from the ends) and just connect the green wire to any black wire on the 20 / 24 pin power connector. Make sure that the power switch on the back of the power supply is switched on.

If neither of those seem to be the problem, then most likely it is the motherboard or the processor.

NEED TO KNOW WIRING


i have been to fic's web site, i cannot find any mb labeled au31.

do you have anymore information about the board, how old, which processor, what socket, which north bridge, south bridge, which model system, etc?

 

however the pins are usually marked "pwr sw" or "pwr" and are usually with all the other front panel connector pins.

Emachine 2685 no power up


from the spec of the motherboard it should be one of the pin headers near the Bios battery (looks like a coin on the mobo)

hopefully (if you look close enough) it should be marked pwr
