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.

    FIC AU31 mb (a.k.a K7m-NF18G mb)

    Pin Configuration = Pinout

    The Front plastic panel of the computer is the Front Panel.
    The area of pins on the motherboard that the cables (Wires) go to, is the Front Panel header.
    Front Panel header pinout.

    The motherboard used in an eMachines T2672 desktop computer is an FIC AU31 motherboard.
    Made by First International Computers (Inc.) for eMachines.
    http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/moth...

    Orient the motherboard like it is in the photo, so we are both looking at it in the same direction.
    {Processor to the top, Ram memory slots to the right, white PCI slots to the bottom. The way it sits in the computer case}

    The Front Panel header, is a small black rectangular block that sits horizontally, at the far right bottom corner.

    It has two rows of pins.
    4 across the top, and 5 across the bottom.

    (The small rectangular block above it, is for connecting a Power On LED light that has 3 wires. More on this in a moment)

    The pins are numbered.
    The pins are numbered Evenly across the top, and Odd across the bottom.

    Starting from the Left side going across to the Right, on the Top row;
    Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.
    There is No Pin 10.

    Starting from the Left side going across to the Right, on the Bottom row;
    Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

    A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light. (HDD LED)
    Pin 1 is for the Positive wire ( + )
    (If the LED light is dim when operating, switch the wires around)

    B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used. (Reset button)

    C) Pin 9 is Not Used. (NC. No Connection)

    D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light, IF it is a 2 wire LED light.
    Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
    (If the LED light is dim, switch the wires around)

    If the Power On LED light has 3 wires:
    Use the Power On header above the Front Panel header.
    This rectangular block has 3 pins.

    Starting from the Left side going to the Right; Pins 1 , 2, and 3.
    Pin 1 is for the Positive wire.
    Pins 2 and 3 are Ground wires.

    E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Power On button plastic assembly has an ATX power on switch inside it)

[ P.S.
The motherboard chipset is an Nvidia Crush 18G + MCP AGP
It is an Nvidia Force 2 chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_chipsets#nForce2

Supports Processors that are AMD, and fit in a Socket A processor socket.
(Socket A is also known as Socket 462)

Supports AMD processors that have either a 200MegaHertz Front Side Bus, or a 266MHz FSB, or a 333MHz FSB.

AMD Athlon XP processors with either a 266MHz FSB, or 333MHz FSB.
From the 1500+ model up to the 2800+ model.

AMD Duron processors with a 200MHz FSB.
From the 800MHz to the 1.3GHz models

(AMD Athlon XP is the top of the line. Then it's Duron, then Sempron.
A Sempron processor has half of the L2 cache that a comparable Athlon XP does)

Ram Memory is DDR Sdram at either 200MHz, or 266MHz, or 333MHz, or 400MHz.
Depends on the Processor used.

(Ram Memory typically operates at half of the frequency rate ('Speed') that the Processor does.
If the processor's FSB is 333MHz, you can use 400MHz DDR Sdram. {PC3200}

Confusing I know.
DDR Sdram is 'double-pumped'. It is actually 200MHz for PC3200.
This is close to half of 333MHz.

Processor has an FSB of 266MHz? Ram memory used will be 266MHz. Remember, it is actually 133MHz for the ram memory. (PC2100)

Need an AMD Athlon processor?
I found this place years ago. Not advertising for them. Just computer geeks sticking together, and sharing information. (I have bought a motherboard from them, and it works fine),

I Need the jumper settings for the fic k8mc51g motherboard from a emachines desktop computer. Putting the motherboard in a custom case.


There is a 4-Pin Speaker connector that is not used by Gateway on the motherboard (right beside) the CMOS jumper settings (Pins).
The clear CMOS settings jumper block is right beside the speaker pins. You can use this jumper block to clear the CMOS RAM, which is powered by the onboard real-time clock button cell battery.
Pin 3 is indicated by the markings on the board.
Settings: Pins 1 and 2 covered = Normal Operation Pins 2 and 3 covered = Clear CMOS enabled.crazyeyes746.jpg

I have a pc3500g motherboard and need to know where to plug wires


Dear... Mr.A. Ganesh
From Chennai(India)


pin configurations are printed in the mother board.watch carefully .it may be just few inches away from the front panel connector.

Even u cant find it...


you dont worry about it.You just assemble the

Cpu ,SMPS

then switch on the main .

then short a moment( 1second ) at any two pins which is in the front panel connector ( using tester/sqrew driver);continiously cheak like this one by one pair of pin(Verticaly and Horizontaly).

when you short the corrrect pin,then system on.so you can find it like this.then connect the power button easily.

I am 5 years Experienced Engineer. Mother Board should not get any problem doing like this.
Thank you

MY MONTOR HAS POWER AND IS NOT WORKING.


Hi, dont loose faith. If you look on your mother board along the edge closest to the front of the case you will see a series of pins, usualy about 10 pins. Printed on the board will be the names of the plugs that match. The wires from the front of the case have corresponding names. The power and reset switch will work no matter witch way around you put them. The HDD led and the pwr led will only work one way so if these lights dont work, just reverce the plugs. If desperate you can bridge two pins together at a time until you get the on/off switch. Note you cant hurt anything unless you use a hammer. Regards mistyman
