There is your motherboard manual in PDF file form.

For an example;
The front of your computer is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires from the Front Panel go to; is the Front Panel header.

Motherboard installed in computer case, the Front Panel header is at the Bottom/Right.
The Front Panel header is Orange in color. (Page 20)

Two rows of contact pins.
5 pins across the Top row.
4 pins across the Bottom row.

The Top row is numbered ODD.
The Bottom row is numbered EVEN.

What do the red diodes D1 - D4 mean?


I do not see anything in the manual about LEDs for D1-D4
Super Micro Computer Inc Products Motherboards Xeon Boards X5DP8 G2 .

However if the motherboard is not posting it could be the RAM. One continuous long beep means that there is no memory detected (D1-D4 may refer to the dimm slots 1-4). You can try booting off of a single stick of RAM, and try different dimm slots to get the motherboard to post.

E-Machines T3508 PC Desktop Motherboard connecting the wires


The eMachines T3058 Desktop PC uses an Intel D101GGC motherboard.

The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The rectangular area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

Front Panel header:

This link takes you to Intel Support, and the download page for the motherboard manual, for the Intel D101GGC motherboard,

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d101ggc/sb/CS-021718.htm

On this page click on the blue -
Intel Desktop Board D101GGC Product Guide - English (PDF)

The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

{ Took 7 seconds to download just now, with no additional download time needed.
Using medium speed DSL connection }

Ignore the following if you are aware;
At the top of the PDF file is the PDF file page number box, and the Zoom Out/Zoom In icons.

Zoom Out ( + ) enlarges the page view, Zoom In ( - ) reduces the page view.
For myself I reduce the view size to 100 or 75 percent.

The page number box is to the right of the Down Arrow.

(If you do not see this, hover your mouse cursor towards the bottom/middle. When the icons come up, {They were 'ghosted out'}, click on the PDF icon to the far right )

Provided that somehow you cannot download this motherboard manual;

Orient the motherboard so we are both looking at it in the same direction.
Same as it sits in the computer case.

Processor to the Top, Ram Memory to the Right, white PCI slots to the bottom.
The Front Panel header is at the Bottom/Right.

It is a rectangular block of plastic with two rows of pins.
4 across the Top, 5 across the Bottom.

It is numbered Even on the top, and Odd on the bottom.

Starting at the LEFT side going towards the right, on the top row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.
There is no Pin 10, just an empty space.

Starting at the LEFT side going towards 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. (Orange)
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. (Blue)

C) Pin 9 is for 5 Volts. Not Used (Black)

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

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Red)

Do not know what wires coming from the Front Panel are the Power On switch wires, Power On LED light wires, or Harddrive activity LED light wires?

Remove the Front Panel, trace the wires to the Power On switch. (Two wires. Probably twisted together. Or all wires are in a single sheath)

Same for the Power On LED light, and the Harddrive LED light.

Need to know where the harddrive, or optical drive plugs in?
Need to know where the power cables from the Power Supply plug in?
Please post back in a Comment.

This photo also shows the orientation (Direction), that the motherboard is sitting in a computer case.

To the very bottom right is the Front Panel header.

The front plastic panel of the computer is the Front Panel.

The area of pins on the motherboard that the cables, (Wires) from the Front Panel connect to, is the Front Panel header. ( F_PANEL )

The Front Panel header, is the black rectangular shaped plastic block, that is sitting vertically on the motherboard.

Has two columns of pins.
4 on the left side, 5 on the right side. Makes it look as though there is a pin missing, at the top left corner.

I'm going to number the pins.

Pins on the Left side starting at the Top, going down;

Pins 1, 3, 5, and 7.

Pins on the Right side starting at the Top, going down,

Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10.


A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the Power On switch. (Power On button)

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 7 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
(If the LED light is dim, reverse the wires around)

C) Pins 4 and 6 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used. (Reset button)

D) Pins 8 and 10 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
Pin 10 is for the Positive wire. ( + )

if you can see your usb drive but its not working

ports(com&lpt)right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts

make sure the battery is good (has full charge)also you might test the usb device for the mouse is inserted correctly into the usb port (if applicable)

I took the front off the e machine w2888 desktop but did not notice the three wires was not one plug, what order and colored wire up or down. Their is a pwr led, pwr s/w, hdd led wire. Thanks Jerry


The eMachines W2888 uses an Intel D845GVSR motherboard.

This is the download page for the Intel D845GVSR motherboard manual, (Product Guide),

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845gvsr/sb/cs-008823.htm

Left-click on the first file name in blue -
Intel Desktop Board D845GVSR - Product Guide (PDF)

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the above file name it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

[ Took 4 seconds to see the first page come up, just now. File was fully downloaded ]

At the top of the PDF file is the page number box. It is to the right of the blue Down Arrow.
This is the page number I will be referring to, and may not be the actual page number of the manual.

Go to Page 11.

This shows an illustration of the motherboard looking down at it from the top.
The letter S points to the Front Panel header.

[The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.

The area of pins on the motherboard that the cables (Wires) go to from the Front Panel, is the Front Panel header ]

Looking at the motherboard with the Processor to the top, Ram memory slots to the right, and the white PCI slots (3) to the bottom, the Front Panel header is located parallel to the bottom right edge of the motherboard.

(The illustration has the motherboard sitting on it's right side.
Not the direction it is sitting in your computer.
In your computer the motherboard is sitting as described above )

Now I would like you to go to Page 31.
This illustration shows the various internal headers on the motherboard.
The letter C points to the Front Panel header. (J9G1)

Note that the pins in the Front Panel header are labeled with numbers.
(Pinout)

There are 4 pins across the top.
There are 5 pins across the bottom.

Starting from the Left side of the motherboard, going towards the right, across the Top of the Front Panel header;

Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

Starting from the Left side of the motherboard, going towards the right, across the Bottom of the Front Panel header;

Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

Page 32: Front Panel Header

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 used.
Pin 5 is for the Ground ( - ) wire.

C) Pin 9 is for a 5 Volt wire. (It's probably Red in color, IF used)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light. (Light Emitting Diode)

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (The Power On switch is located inside the plastic Power On button assembly)

F) Pin is N/C. Not Connected.
