Lol wow ;)

Lets assume you have all the right componets.

To make your pc work you need x things
Power Supply 24pin
Power Supply 4pin  (same powersupply, should have this connector to)
DDR or DDR2 memory (You cannot use both)
Video Card (that board does have integrated video)
Hard Drive (SATA or IDE both can be used)

So all you need to do is connect your PSU to the main board. Make sure their is not 4 missing pins, if so then you only have a 20pin PSU.

Next plug in your Ram. Remember you cannot use DDR2 and DDR at the same time.

Insert your Processor, make sure your processor and socket are alighted to the arrow you will find in the corner of each. Do not FORCE a socket processor.

After that you need to install the heat sink. It looks like yours will most likely have the pain in the butt be careful not to 'get it on the edge" If you dont get the brackets on solid, when you try to connect the other side it will snap off the first side.

Here is the confusing part. You need to connect the case headers. You may or may not have usb connectors. With some luck you will have the type that are all together. Those will only plug in 1 way.

As for your speaker, HDD Led, PWR Led, PWR Switch, and RES Switch, you need to read the board header, or refer to the manual. I have included the link to the manual to help.

or read the manual that comes with it.


Ram goes in the two blue slots, sound & modem in white PCI slots, video in orange AGP slot.  You can't put cards in the wrong slots.

I have a Philips soundbar that I have hooked up to my flat screen tv using audio (red,white) cables directly from soundbar to tv and there is no sound coming out.

Be sure you are hooking up the Audio Output from the TV or satellite to the soundbar.

From the satellite box both Audio Output and Video Output go to the TV, and then Audio Output from the TV goes to the soundbar.
From the satellite box Video Output goes to the TV and Audio Output goes to the soundbar.

I just bought a used kenmore elite side by side refrigerator and hooked up the water line to the back of the fridge. My question is where does the long water line the goes to the fridge and comes back...

Where you hook the house water line is to the water inlet valve which is a one in two out solonoid controlled valve. One side goes to the water dispenser in the door and the other hooks to the ice maker connection.

So I suspect the long water line you are talking about has had the lines switched at the valve and needs reversed. The long line probably goes up the back of the unit and connects to the ice maker. The one for the water dispenser should hook to the water chiller resevoir and then to the water dispenser.

Tryin to hook up a mtx electronic crossover rt-01a. i dont know how to hook it up

Your basic crossover is going to have a power (+) and ground (-). Your power wire goes to the battery, and your ground goes to the frame. You will need to hook up your RCA or speaker wires to the input side. Then hook the other two RCA connections to your amp.
