Re: diagram of motherboard wanted


Based on your post/description, you would want to do 2 things: 1) upgrade a Cyrix and 2) install LAN capability.

#2 is easier, all you need is a PCI LAN card with the right drivers for your operating system and you should be set to go;

#1 is trickier...
If you are referring to a Cyrix MediaGXm motherboard, at most that you can go up to is a 300 MHz CPU and hopefully a max of 256Mb of memory depending on the motherboard version.

If you are referring to a Cyrix MII-433 processor which ran at 300 MHz (100x3), hopefully you can try replacing the processor with an AMD K6-2 500 or higher, that is of course assuming that the motherboard is compatible (FSB, VCore voltage, multiplier). You should take into consideration that other than the MII-433. most Cyrix CPUs run at 83 MHz bus in a (Super) Socket 7 motherboard and technically is extremely overclocked (PCI bus running at 41.5 MHz). You should meticulously check the various jumper settings to accommodate your upgrade CPU. For stability, perhaps you should choose an Intel 266 with MMX, for speed AMD K6-2 500. This is of course if you can still locate such processors and appropriate memories.

Good luck and kind regards.

I need the pin configuration of Battery detection cable for MGE UPS EX7RT

Here's a link to the manual.

An RJ 45 network connector will either be a crossover or a straight patch cable.

My APC BR1500LCDI has RJ-45 data port, how can I communicate with it. I lost the cable data provided by vendor.

The APC UPS communicates with the computer using a data cable that has a RJ45 connector at the APC and a USB connector at the computer. This data cable and communication software CD is available from APC.
Go to this APC WEB site for a manual for your model UPS.

Need information

The Back-UPS is fairly straight-forward. The 9-pin connector (at the top of the back) is a serial port (RS-232) for the UPS data (when connected to a computer it will shut down the computer safely during a power outage). The next plugs are RJ-11 telephone jacks; the cord from the jack (wall) goes in on the left (some models have RJ-45 for network protection). The battery protected outlets are the three surrounded by black paint. The other three provide surge-protection only. Do not plug items like printers and scanners into the outlets that provide battery protection.

I hope this helps.

Where is USB port

Many of my APC UPSes do not have a USB port. They either have a serial port or a 6-wire RJ-45 (or close to that size) port with a cable that has a USB jack on the other end.

I hope that this helps.

Ethernet card

hi there. The ethernet card is an interface that allows your computer to be connected to a LAN (Local area network) and to a Cable/Dsl modem to be on the internet. The connector looks bigger than the one of a regular telephone jack (it's actually double). If you don't have the ethernet card you can't go on the internet or on a LAN.
From the back of the modem or router you should connect a cable to your ethernet card of yor computer. Only after you did that you can try to connect to the internet.
Let me know, or be more specific.

Ethernet cable does not fit into computer

You might be trying to plug the ethernet cable into the modem. This is smaller than the ethernet connectionbut looks the same. If there is no ethernet connection on the computer you might need to have a NIC card install.

Honestly, sounds like theres either a connection problem between the monitor and the motherboard, or the video card died. On the rear of a laptop, theres a serial port (serial meaning a rectangular shape with a bunch of pin holes in it), its used to connect a laptop to an actual computer monitor. Attempt to do this. Its plug and play, meaning it should just work. If you still get no picture on the other monitor, its probably your video card, Look into getting a new one for your pcimia slot (which is the slot located on the side of your computer, which alot of the times, a wireless card is in it). If it DOES show up on the monitor, it may be a faulty connection with the monitor to montherboard...which honestly, I'd recommend letting someone who knows what they are doing, take it apart and make sure... Cus laptops are tricky and delicate to take apart and check yourself.

If its a laptop, odds are, the screen is an LCD, and MOST LCD screens have a half life of at least 20 years... So I'd check the connection before id call it the monitors problem >.< Hope this helps.

What is a receptacle?

When you plug something into a conventional duplex receptacle (the type that receives two appliance plugs), and the device doesn't work, trouble shooting the problem is fairly simple. For large receptacles that run on 220 to 240 volts, such as ranges and dryers and air conditioners, call an electrician unless you're well-versed in electrical repairs and safety issues. Always check when installing if the appliance is rated from 15 to 50 amps, 240 volts, and 20 to 50 amps, 120/240 volts. They have two hot wires (red and black) and a separate grounding wire. Receptacle basics Conventional duplex receptacles have two places to plug in electrical cords or devices. Each of those two places includes one narrow slot, one wide slot, and a semicircular hole. The narrow slot is the "hot" side, connected to the black wire of the electrical system. The wide slot is the "neutral" side, connected to the white wire. And the semicircular hole is the ground, connected to a bare or green wire or the electrical system's ground. Many electrical plugs have one wide blade and one narrow blade (and, in some cases, a ground plug) that match the receptacle's slots to insure that the circuit is properly connected to the electrical device. Wires may be attached to screws on each side of the receptacle or plugged into terminal holes in the back of the receptacle. Whether wires attached to screw terminals or are pushed into rear-mount terminals, the screw terminals on the sides of the receptacle are hot (charged) so don't touch them!
