Question about HP Pavilion Media Center TV m7330n (ER101AA) PC Desktop

2 Answers

New Motherboard I recently replaced the Motherboard and for the most part all is fine... however.. The front USB port, the external media drive bay and the memory card reader no longer work... If either the USB/media drive bay OR the memory card reader is plugged into the motherboard, computer will not boot up. Any suggestions?

Re: New Motherboard

Check that the 1394 usb header cable(red on end) is not plugged into a usb 2.0 standard port on m/board(yellow plug) 1394 will be red on the end. standard usb 2.0 will be yellow and external drive bay will be white.The key here is to pay close attention and use magnifying glass to verify on board which plug goes where even though 1 might fit in the other..Hope this helps and if not let me know~

Replace front usb

Replacing the stock mounted usb port, that would require you some screwing, but it depends on your system. You can try look at ebay for similar model of casing or other online store.

There are some external Usb port that can be mounted on 5" bay, or try any 8 in 1 external.

What personal media drive will fit the HP m 1190n media bay. Will any fit or are they part number specific? Thank you

Not sure what you mean by personal media player.

1) If its an Ipod or any MP3 player, you should be able to connect any via a USB cable, or directly plugged in.

2) if you mean CD or DVD drive/player like the one that came with it, they're generic, any with the correct interface (IDE or SATA) Though I think SATA in this case.

Here's a URL with the full specification of your system to help:-

If you mean the "personal media bay" listed here, I think were back to a generice CD/DVD drive.

Bought internal harddrive and don't know where 7-pin SATA port is on motherboard, or Sata power connector is from PC.

hi, sorry to tell you this but that model of dell desktop does not have sata ports or sata power connectors and has no spare drive bays to mount the hard drive either , you would be best to try and return the drive and purchase an external hard drive and connect it to your PC via the usb socket .
Hope this helps

Its more likely that there could be a loose connection to the motherboard. If not try to attach some ports to the same place on the motherboard and if they also dont work motherboard at fault if they do obviously your old ports are dead for some reason. Good luck.
