Re: motherboard pin config

All motherboards have a print beside the pins, Speaker= "speak", "pwr s" =powerswitch, "HDDled" red light on front, rst = reset switch [not allways used] "pwr led" Green led, the case wires are usualy marked on the plug ends with the same , "hdd" "reset" and so on. The power switch will work both way's around however the led lights wont. You will not hurt anything if they are the wrong way around, they just wont work so if you dont get lights just reverse the polarity. If by chance the case wires do not have labels the just trace them to the case front panel and plug them into the corresponding board pins. Regards mistyman

Probably getting too hot or HDD problem.

If too hot you may take of the case and blow out the system with an air compressor (just take it outside away from clean things). Also while it is apart clear away any lint debis from the CPU fan & heatsink area. Leave the case off and hookup your system again. This will do two things, 1.) give you better airflow to test the heat theory and 2.) give you a chance to peek at the CPU fan to see if it is moving well. Depending on your motherboard you may have a sensor monitor in the bios which will allow you to check the tempature of the CPU as well as the fan speed.

If it is a Hard Drive problem listen for a noisy drive arm (clicking sound). Lastly if it's a memory problem you can tell by swaping out the chips. But i would lay odds that it's a heat issue. Hope this helps, Best Regards, -md

You can always use a program like driver genius or Boot from a Knoppix cd and run ls pci from the command window. If the card is not integrated in the motherboard pop it out and get the numbers off the card itself.
Worst case scenario is put a 10 dollar pci ethernet card in it :)

I am moving the motherboard to another case that ATX and AT motherboard compatible; but, I need to know how to hook-up the cases front light, sound, external USB, power switch and indicator light etc.,...

Hi there.
Get a strong flashlight and a magnifying glass (if you have one). On the motherboard look for the front panel, it should be marked PWR and coloured green, also the plug that connects to it should be marked PWR_SW. On some boards there are no colours but the markings are the same, so take a good close look.
Have a look at these pictures for an idea >>>>>>



USB header configuration >>>>


Good luck.

I need a sound driver for systemax venture


Firstly, try getting the motherboard model and checking the manufacturer's site.

You could try drivergrabber off (easily found on google). Alternatively, try googling the device ID's - found by clicking start > run "msinfo32" OK. In that screen, click the [+] next to components and then go to Problem Devices. In that screen, on the right hand side, you will have things written such as PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3A3A - go to google and type in exactly as follows "8086 3A3A" (or whatever shows up after VEN_ & DEV_ in your case) and see what you can find.

Alternatively, if you're running a legitimate copy of Windows, Windows update (if on XP you must install Microsoft Update), can often pull these straight down off the Microsoft servers.

No Audio


I have a friend with a systemax, same thing happened to him.

Go into the control panel, select sounds and audio devices, go over three tabs to the audio tab, make sure the sound default device is the onboard audio card. Should be all set.

Let me know how it works out.
