Question about Computers & Internet
My desktop shut down by itself in few seconds.But when I remove the 4 pin connector(square) next to processor on motherboard,its no longer shut down but I am not getting the display.
The problem you describe is probably due to a faulty power supply.
The four pin connector which you unplugged supplies power to the CPU, which means you will not be able to get a display with it plugged out, as there will be no power to your CPU.
The fact that the PC does not shut down when removing the 4 pin connector strengthens the evidence that your power supply is faulty. By removing the 4 pin connector you are reducing the power required from the power supply to the point where it is not 'overloaded' enough to switch off.
You can test this by plugging in the 4 pin CPU power connector, then unplugging something else, such as the DVD writer.
Then switch on your PC and see if it still shuts down.
If it remains on then the cause of your problem is definitely the power supply.
Replace the power supply and make sure it has a wattage rating of 400 watts or more. These power supplies are relatively cheap, and should be available at your local PC store for about $15.

I managed to install a card reader on my Dell Dimension 8200.
The main problem is that the Dell motherboard does not have the correct USB pin. This is a 9-pin MoBo USB header.
The quick answer is I installed a USB card with an internal port.
Secondly I reverse mounted a powered 4-port USB hub in the spare 3.5" bay.
Third, I purchased 2 USB 5 pin male to usb leads...
You cannot buy a USB card with 2 internals and do away with the 4 port powered USB hub because the card reader does need to be connected to a powered USB port.

The eMachines C2685 uses an FIC VC37GV motherboard. (First International Computer, Inc.)
Here is the motherboard manual,
After you click on the above link, give it up to 30 seconds to download. This is a PDF file.
Barring you cannot download the file, I will state the connections for the Front Panel header on the motherboard.
(Plus state the page to reference to, in case you can download)
View the first link, with the photo of the FIC VC37GV motherboard.
As shown, Processor is at the top, Ram Memory slots are to the right.
The Front Panel header is located at the very bottom right corner.
It is parallel to the outside edge of the motherboard. There are two rows of pins.
The Front Panel header has 5 pins going across the top, and 4 pins across the bottom.
The top row of pins are numbered Odd.
The bottom row of pins are numbered Evenly.
On the Top row starting on the Right side, going towards the left, the pins are numbered 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.
On the Bottom row starting on the Right side, going towards the left, the pins are numbered 2, 4, 6, and 8.
A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HDD LED. (HarDDrive activity LED)
B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch
C) Pins 2 and 4 are for a Dual Color Power On LED, if used.
Green goes to Pin 2. Yellow goes to Pin 4.
Otherwise Pin 2 is Positive, ( + ), and Pin 4 is Negative. ( - )
D) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.
(PWR1, or SW1)
There is a small 3 pin header, just above the Front Panel header. (Page 12)
This is for a Power LED that has either two wires, or three wires.
The pins are numbered from Right to left.
Pin 1 is for the Power LED, and Pin 2 is for Ground, if using a two wire Power LED. (Not dual color)
Pin 1 is for the Power LED, and Pins 2 and 3 are for Ground (GND), if using a three wire Power LED.
