Need wiring diagram for placement of the internal cables in Compaq Presario SR5410F


Top view photo of the motherboard, of an MSI MS-7525 motherboard made FOR HP by MSI, for a Compaq Presario SR5410F Desktop PC,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01386897&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=3686678

Also scroll down the page, and click on the + sign to the left of -
Motherboard Layout.

A) 24-pin ATX main power cable:

In the photo, look to the right of the Blue ram memory slots.

The Yellowish/Whitish connector to the right of them, with two columns of 12 socket holes, is where the 24-pin ATX main power cable plugs in.

In the Motherboard Layout it is marked by - ATX1

This is a general example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

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

Note the middle photo, and the Lock on the side of the power cable's connector. The Lock has a hooked end that goes over a Tab, on the motherboard's connector.

The Lock works like a see-saw on a playground. The top is squeezed in, and this brings the hooked end away from the Tab, in order to remove the power cable.
When assured that the power cable is plugged in tightly, and therefore correctly, the hooked end of the Lock will be over the motherboard connector's Tab.

B) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable:

In the center of the motherboard, under the Processor socket, is the Northbridge chip. (Part of the motherboard chipset)
It is under a finned aluminum Heatsink, that resembles a meat tenderizer's head.

Draw an imaginary line up above it, in-between the Processor socket, and the aluminum finned Heatsink, and go straight LEFT.
See the whitish 4-socket hole square connector?

In the Motherboard Layout it is marked by - JPW1

This is where the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable plugs in. It is power for the Processor. Has the same locking setup as the 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's motherboard connector.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

C) In the Motherboard Layout to the top left corner of ram memory Slot 1, (DIMM1), is where the Processor fan connects.
CPU_FAN1

D) In the Motherboard Layout just below JPW1 is where the computer case fan plugs into. SYS_FAN1

E) In the Motherboard Layout - SATA1 - is where the SATA Harddrive data cable plugs into. (Below ram memory slots)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_ports.jpg

The SATA power cable from the power supply, plugs into the SATA harddrive. Note that the SATA power cable's connector, is longer in length than the SATA data cable's connector.

[SATA power cable has 15-pin. SATA data cable has 7-pins ]

Note that both cable's connectors, have an L-shape on the inside.

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

NOTE*
This is what a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable looks like,

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

IF, your SATA harddrive has a provision for a SATA power cable, AND a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, ONLY use just the SATA power cable!

Otherwise you will burn up the SATA harddrive. May not happen right away, but I assure you it will happen!

[ A note on SATA.
The beauty of SATA, is that you can plug into ANY SATA connector on the motherboard, and BIOS will see it.

If you plug the Harddrive into SATA 1, or SATA 2, or SATA 3, or SATA 4, connector on the motherboard, IT DOES NOT MATTER.
BIOS will find the Harddrive, or optical drive ]

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.

In the Motherboard Layout illustration, the Front Panel header is down at the Bottom/Right corner, and is marked - JFP1.
(Right in the very bottom/right corner is JUSB2. JFP1 is right above it)

JFP1. Junction Front Panel 1.
9-pin header. Black rectangle.
5 pins on the Right side, 4 pins on the Left side.

The pins are numbered EVEN on the LEFT side.
Starting on the BOTTOM going UP;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

The pins are numbered ODD on the RIGHT side.
Starting on the BOTTOM going UP;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED.
(Light Emitting Diode, so it is a light )

Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire. If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

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

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. 5 Volt power, and reserved for the factory to use.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR ON LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

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

My Compaq presario sr 1738nx desk top won't turn on at all. no blinking lights no fans nothing. if I unplug and re-plug back in the green light comes on for a second and thats it. nothing. ive swi



Sounds like the power supply has failed. That's where you plug the power wire into it. You could try opening the case and re-seating the main plug connector on the mother board. This is the big bunch of wires that ends in a 24 pin plug attached to the main board.
(See if you can borrow a power supply from a handy family member?) http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/f/powersupplytest.htm

Need install manual for gl8e motherboard plz


have searched everywhere. I even entered a chat windows with Compaq & asked for a site to download the manual for Compaq Presario SR5015LA Desktop PC which has the motherboard MCP61PM-HM in it. (Nothing). This board was made by
ECS known as EliteGroup. Still nothing. Forms for the most part do not help, only with drivers. Drivers for the board can be found on Compaq's web site.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/prodinfoCategory?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3411762
But the manual will not download. That's what is needed to hook up the front panel pins to you're case. I even looked for other possible boards who's layout was close to the MCP61PM-HM.
Nothing! I did find other Compaq PC's that also had the same board in it but after looking through the manuals, not one actuallys shows where to plug the front panel LED's on to the board. Why? Because Compaq does not support a user changing out their case for another. There is no money in that.
For the most part RobPu, system boards share some things in common. I am posting a picture for you. This pic is upside down for you so try & work with me here. Hook up you're LED's as shown. This should work for you. Pin 1 is you're starting point.
daa3370.jpg This is standard for ECS boards even if it's being sold by Compaq. Like I mentioned, for you it is posted unside down.
Try it, I'm sure it will work for you.

Compaq presario desktop will not turn on


Check the power cables if it is working properly.
See if your AVR didn't blow a fuse or the switch is working and the led light are lighted or is powered on.
Test your pc's switch if it is still established contact and not unpluged from *********** board and is working properly.
Test your power supply by unpluging all plugs that is connected to your motherboard and try to short out, the green and black wire from pin 4 and 5 see picture below. Just put a small length wire at pin 4 and five and you'll be able to know if it is working just fine.

Connect it to your computer again if it is working properly.
Press the power switch.
If it still is not working, try to disassemble your processor, then press the power switch.
If it still did'nt work or still doesent turn on, then your motherboard is the broblem and needs to be replaced. Have a nice day friend, and hope this could help you analyze.

My compaq presario sr2010nx desktop won't turn on. I tried fooling with the off/on switch wiring and it came on for a short time. All was well. I hadn't used it for a week and tried to turn it...


Hi.

Sounds more like a power supply problem. First test the on/off switch by tracing the wires to where it connects to the mother board. The plug is usually marked "pwr sw" . Unplug the wire from the board & short out the 2 pins where the switch was plugged in using a small screw driver or any other conductive material. If the pc still fails to turn on, try replacing the power supply.
Best wishes,
