SOURCE: I have a TP link wireless adaptor for an acer

Providing the wireless adaptor is a PCI card this fits the white slot on motherboard.
Should it be USB, then plugs in the USB port.

SOURCE: motherboard not recognizing usb Ports

chk in your device manager if they are blocked or not. control panel and then open system and hardware and then device manager scroll down and see if you have any USB marked in Red if its there then right click on it and enable it. if still fails try doing a system restore or you should need to install a new version of windows. that's the same issue i encountered and i end up in reinstalling a new version of windows. cheers !!! :)

Hi i need to upgrade my old pc . i whant to buy a graphic card to play all the new games 2011 but i dont know what g card to buy. my motherboard it is :Mainboard >>> > Manufacturer :...


if you have a old PC then upgrading the graphics card alone will not get your computer up to date to play 2011 games, you might need to buy a whole new 2011 computer. Go online and do a system requirement test of the game you are willing to download or buy and play.

Nothing happens when I press power button


1) Make sure THE receptacle in the surge protector that the computer is plugged into, has power. Plug an electrical device such as a table lamp for example, into THAT receptacle. I have had a few surge protectors where just THAT receptacle was bad.

2) Receptacle checks out, I suggest you see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.
(The Power On switch is located in the plastic Power On button.
This is an example of a generic ATX power on switch,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

The procedure involves bypassing the Power On switch.
If the Power Supply comes on you have a bad Power On switch.
If the Power Supply does Not come on, you have a bad Power Supply.

The procedure does not involve the wires of the Power On switch, nor the switch itself.
The procedure involves using a jumper on the ATX main power cable's connector.
Jumping from the Soft Power On wire (Green wire) to ANY Ground wire.
(ANY Black wire is a Ground wire)

The Acer Aspire T180 uses a 24-pin ATX main power cable.
The 24-pin ATX main power cable plugs into the motherboard, in-between the Ram Memory slots, (Slot 4), and the outside edge of the motherboard.

This shows you a typical 24-pin ATX main power cable, it's connector, and the matching female connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

This is to show you the motherboard, (Not advertising for the website, nor the seller),

http://cgi.ebay.com/Acer-Aspire-E380-T180-Motherboard-MCP61S-EM61SM-/140420704873?pt=Motherboards&hash=item20b1b9ea69

Scroll to the bottom of the page, and then click on -
Click to view supersized image

When you open your computer case, (Computer unplugged from power), you will see various cables, and hardware components, plugged into the motherboard.

Viewing the photo in the link above, look to the right of the Orange Ram Memory slot.
You will see the blue connector.

The opaque whitish connector to the right of it, and next to the outside edge of the motherboard, is where the 24-pin ATX main power cable plugs into.

Looking back at the link that shows the 24-pin ATX main power cable (Playtool link), look at the photo to the far right.
This is what you will see when you open your computer case.

View the Green wire.
Now view the Black wires.

The jumper wire you will fashion, will go down into the socket hole with the Green wire, and ANY Black wire.

One end of the jumper wire, will go down into the socket hole with the Green wire.
The other end of the jumper wire will go down into a socket hole with ANY Black wire.

The jumper wire will go down into the socket hole, Right next to the wire that is already in the socket hole.

(The Back of the connector is where the wires go in. The Front of the connector plugs into the motherboard.
The jumper wire goes into the Back of the connector, down into the socket holes, and right next to the existing wire that is already in the socket hole)

At the end of the power wires going down into the socket holes, is a metal terminal.
The metal terminal is pretty far down into the socket hole.
(Approximately 1/2 inch)
You need to ensure that the ends of the jumper wire Touch the metal terminals.

The jumper wire is fashioned from a paper clip.
The paper clip is first straightened out, then bent into a U-shape.
Black plastic electrical tape is wrapped around the bend of the U-shape.
This taped area is where you hold onto the jumper wire.

The voltage for the Green (Soft Power On) wire is 5 Volts DC.
Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.
Low, low voltage in case you are concerned of being shocked.

However, you may wish to wear a glove on the hand that holds the jumper wire.
There may be a small spark.

Suggest you lay the computer on it's side, computer case open, opening of the computer case up.
(Won't hurt the computer to operate laying on it's side)

Place the ends of the jumper wire into the socket holes.
The contact is no more than 2 seconds.

Power Supply comes on, you have a bad Power On switch.
Power Supply does not come on, you have a bad Power Supply.

The Power Supply is an ATX.
(ATX form factor.
The ATX form factor for a Power Supply is approximately 6 inches Wide, {Width},6 inches Long, {Length},and 3-1/2 inches Tall {Height)

It's a 250 Watt unit.

NO SPECIFICATIONS AT ALL (Acer EM61SM/EM61PM)


I would recommend that you do in fact purchase a new motherboard, it is the heart of your computer and salvaging it from a prebuilt will not work out well for you, usually there is a restriction in the bios only allowing certain hardware to work with it.

As for the size, if you go with a decent case that is specified as ATX, it will work for this motherboard, it may be a micro ATX motherboard but an ATX case from someone such as Lian Li will work for both.

If you want some advice on a good computer build give us a price range, what you are trying to do on the computer, and whether or not you need a monitor, keyboard, or any other periphials.

You can also check out sites like hardforum.com or tomshardware.com they both have very active forums that have specific topics where people can post these requests to get advice from a bunch of different people.

Mother board model number


It is usually printed on the motherboard above a first pci slot, though it could be anywhere on the motherboard , sometimes even just a sticker with a code. You have to look those up on the manufacturers site.
If you can find the manufacturers name , i believe foxconn makes the motherboards for that computer, you can look at the pictures of your board to identify it. heres foxconns site.. http://www.foxconnchannel.com/product/Motherboards/chipset.aspx?socket_id=en-us0000007&chipset_id=en-us0000090&Socket=Socket+AM2&Chipset=MCP61S
Post again here if you need more help .. Regards.
