Location of inverter pins on the motherboard K000009080

I was facing problem with the power pin on my laptop, to fix it i opened the laptop, but accidentally the wires of the LCD screen disconnected. I am not sure which wires are these, and where are they supposed to be connected.

There is a cable of display interface (i guess). The other pair of wires (a black and a white wire) got disconnected, my guess is that they are inverter wires.

Model: TOSHIBA SA35-213
My motherboard is: K000009080

Please please please help me!

The black and white wire are for your wireless card probably, they usually have GOLD connectors, and are labled, on the wire with a lable, and on your wireless card, it will be inserted in the pci slot there are two gold "Tabs" that the wires (Black and white) snap on to. the display cable your talking about usually has an "adapter" that will fit in a slot on the board, the board has a "channel" to route these wires, and "Tuck" them in, do this, and the cables will lead to there connections themselves, You may also need to back away for about an hour, you may be looking to hard, ( it has happened to me in the past) and the answer is looking right at you. Good luck, I appreciate a fixya rating if this answers your question.Thanks

LCD screen flickering


Display Configuration A flickering screen may be caused by the computer detecting incorrect display settings as it starts or returns from sleep. It can also come from changes to the screen resolution settings caused by a new program or update installation. Verify screen resolution before assuming the issue is hardware related. Faulty Inverter Next to the display screen behind the plastic screen bezel is a small component called the inverter, which supplies power to the screen backlight. The flickering indicates the power is not reaching the backlight. To fix the issue, replace the inverter. Faulty Connectors The wires and cables traveling from the display around the hinges and into the motherboard tend to wear at the hinge area. Over time, the opening and closing of the screen causes this wear. The solution is to disassemble the plastic casing of the laptop, reorganize the cables so they have no interference from hinges, or replace the cables and connectors with new ones made specifically for the computer make and model experiencing the issue. b> Test an LCD Inverter An inverter is an electrical device on the bottom of your laptop screen. The job of the inverter is to convert DC electrical current to AC voltage to maintain power to the backlight lamp. If the display on your laptop is dark but working, odds are the inverter or the lamp are at fault. When troubleshooting monitor problems on a laptop, you may need to evaluate the inverter to determine which of the two parts is malfunctioning.

Remove the screen bezel on your laptop. The bezel is the piece of the computer casing that surrounds and protects the LCD screen. To remove the bezel, remove the screws around the screen. Bezel removal method may vary by model. Once the screws come out, the bezel should pop off. The inverter will be under the screen. Attach the positive probe (+) of a multimeter to the pin 1 on the inverter. The inverter has two connections, one on each end. With the laptop screen facing you, look at the left side of the inverter. Pin 1 is the top metal flange pointing to the right. Secure the negative probe (-) of the multimeter to any bare screw. There should be a screw securing the inverter to the laptop that will be perfect for the negative ground connection. Turn the laptop on to test the inverter. Turn the multimeter on and check the multimeter reading. If the display records voltage going to the inverter, such as 19 V DC, the inverter power supply is working. Turn the laptop off. Unplug the LCD inverter connection on the right side of the inverter. This disconnects the backlight from the inverter. Plug a working backlight to the connection on the right side of the inverter. Turn on the laptop. If the screen lights up, the backlight lamp is bad but the inverter works. If the screen remains dark, the inverter is bad.

Tip

Forgot you laptop password?


This tip will help those who have forgotten their bios password not windows password.
Your bios password is the password your computer asks for as soon as you power up your system. The windows password is the password needed to log onto your screen name.
If you have forgotten your bios password almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery.

When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. E.G. If the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

I have dell CPX H500GT and lost BIOS password


Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.

When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.

Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper


The most common way that most of us know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing a battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

hope this helps

Touchpad stopped working when a friend openned the laptop to fix the DC power pin. reinstalled driver, power cycled, disabled and enabled touchpad, still only works with mouse. keyboard works fine


Most probably, your friend disconnected the cable connecting the touchpad to the motherboard while disassembling the laptop to fix the DC power pin, & forgot to reconnect it back.
You will need to partially disassemble the laptop again & reconnect the touchpad to the motherboard.

I have a T2958 and toof the face off. Can you


eMachines doesn't give out this kind of info, and I don't have one in the shop.
eMachines also had the habit, of using a few different manufacturer's of motherboards. Intel, TriGem, MSI, Asus,and FIC to name five.

Plus eMachines would use whatever was available at THAT moment, when they were producing that particular model line. (Not stating the T2958 specifically. Whatever model line they were making at the time)

Plus at the time the T2958 was made, Gateway had bought out eMachines. (eMachines later bought themselves back)

However all is not lost here. At the time the T2958 was made the motherboards were manufactured by Intel.

The Intel D845GVSR
Uses the Intel D845GV MCH, and the Intel ICH4 southbridge chipset

(MCH. Memory Controller Hub. Intel's naming for their Northbridge chipset)

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T2958

You are looking to see where the wires go, on the Front Panel header of the motherboard, from the Front Panel of your computer.

(Front Panel header on a motherboard, is essentially where the wires go that come from the Front Panel of the computer. When referring to a connector on a motherboard, a connector is a Header.

The Power On switch wires, HDD Activity Lamp, Reset switch, {If used}, and Power On Lamp, are located in the Front Panel, for your computer)

{Front Panel = 'Face'}

As stated, eMachines does not give out this info.
I just need your patience, and your eyes. I need you to compare a photo of a motherboard to yours.

When you open your computer case, the side cover should come off of the Left side.
The back of the computer will be to the Left, the front to the right.

The Processor will be at the top of the motherboard, and the Ram Memory slots will be to the right.

Observe the motherboard photo at the top of this page,

http://www.dexplor.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=7747553&sid=8fa7e78bbadfbd6fde083b28641248cc

Orient in your mind so that the motherboard in the photo will have the Processor to the top, and the Ram Memory slots to the right.

Should you have no idea of what I'm referring to here, please come back, and state so in a Comment.

The Front Panel header is composed of three individual headers, (Connectors) for this motherboard.

J9F2, J9G1, and J8H3

The J9F2 is for the USB ports used in the Front Panel. We won't be concerning ourselves with this header.

J8H3 is located to Right side of the CMOS battery. It has two pins sticking up.
This is where the Power On LED light plugs into, IF, the Power On LED light has Two wires, and the light is one solid color when lit up.

J9G1 is located below the CMOS battery, and is located on the bottom edge of the motherboard.

There are two rows of pins sticking up.
The rows are parallel to the edge of the motherboard.

The top row has 4 pins.
The bottom row next to the edge of the motherboard has 5 pins.

The pins are numbered from the Left, going to the Right. There MAY be a number 1, or 2, stamped on the motherboard.
I wouldn't count on it.

The top row of pins, going from the Left towards the Right are,
2, 4, 6, and 8.

The bottom row of pins going from the Left towards the Right are,
1, 3, 5, 7, and 9
There is no Pin 10.

1) Pins 1 and 3 are for the Harddrive Activity light. (HDD)
2) Pins 2 and 4 are used for a Power On LED also.
3) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch

Should you have more questions concerning this, please state so in a Comment.

Need to remove bios password


You will have to reset the BIOS to the default settings.
Power OFF the laptop, remove the power supply and battery.
Open the access door and either:
1. Remove the motherboard battery for a few minutes and put back in.
2. Locate the two reset pins nesr the CMOS BIOS chip or near the motherboard battery. Shot the two pins for a few seconds.

Close 'er up, replace main battery and/or power supply.

Front panel pin layout. I need the front panel pin layout especially for the HD IDE active LED.


Howzit
Trial n Error is your best bet on the control pins panel there are two rows, with the power plugged in,with a screwdriver touch adjacent two pins together at a time starting with the top row then the bottom row, when you touch the right two pins your motherboard will power-up, then place the power-switch plug onto those two pins (the writing on the plug facing innwards toward the mainboard) the two pins for the reset switch and 99.9% of the time located directly next to the power switch or directly above the the power pins on the other row. For the LED lights you will have to just try the different pins and the Power LED will remain on as long as your mboard is on, but to find the LED pins for the Harddrive you will have to plug in your HDD and then when it powers up try the pins and the led for the HDD will flicker on-off, that would be the correct one. Dont worry your mboard will not be damaged by this in any way. Goodluck and let me know how you go. Thanks
