This question is listed as KM4M-L Motherboard, is that correct? You can look for labels, or usually white silk screened numbers, letters, etc on the motherboard itself. Once we can identify the mobo, we can then find the pinouts for the front panel connectors and such.

How to remove drive e in emachines EL1200-01e


This might not be your specific computerhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQToRwe74P8



Power down the eMachines computer and unplug it from the power outlet. Remove the left side panel from the computer case by removing the two screws or thumbscrews in the back and sliding the panel toward the back of the computer. Should the panel not move, check to make sure that there isn't a latch or switch on the rear of the computer case that needs to be slid downward in order to remove the panel. Not all cases will have this feature. Locate the hard drive; it should be in a 3 1/2-inch drive bay located beneath the computer's CD and DVD drives. If your computer has a floppy disc drive, the hard drive will most likely be located in a bay beneath it. Check the position of the floppy drive to make sure that you know which 3 1/2-inch drive it is. You should notice two cables plugging into the back of the hard drive; one of these is the power cable that comes from the power supply, and the other is a data cable that is connected to the computer's motherboard. Unplug the power and data cables from the rear of the hard drive, leaving nothing else plugged in to it. Remove the screws that hold it into its mounting bay, setting them aside until you need them for the new hard drive. Slide the old hard drive out of the mounting bay, being careful not to drop it or hit it against any of the motherboard's components. Set the drive aside and pick up your new hard drive, then slide the new drive into the same bay that you just took the old drive out of. Line the small holes in the side of the drive up with the holes in the mounting bay. Secure the new drive by screwing in the screws that you had previously removed, then plug in the power and data cables that you had unplugged from the previous drive. The cables will only plug in when oriented correctly, so you won't have to worry about accidentally plugging them in wrong. Once the cables have been plugged in you can put the side panel back onto the case and plug your eMachines computer in once again.
On a desktop computer WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.

Removing a Dell Dimension L600r Motherboard


Power unplugged from computer, and all cables;

1) Look at the back of the computer. ONE of the Side Panels remove.

There will be screws vertically along the edge of the Side Panel, that removes. Either Philips head screws you remove, or Thumbscrews that you just loosen.

Once screws are removed, or Thumbscrews loosened all the way, look for a bulged formation in the back of the Side Panel.
This is a fingerpull.

Pull back on the Side Panel. It may only pull back so far, then stop.
This is because the Side Panel has hooked tabs that protrude from it, and go into slots in the metal frame of the computer case.

The Side Panel is then slid forward a tiny bit, and removed straight out from the computer case. You have to get the hooked end of the tabs, to clear the slots in the metal frame.

STOP!
Now FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions!

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static BEFORE reaching inside your computer, and/or before taking any new parts out of their anti-static bags, or cartons.

Computer On a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

I then lay the computer on a static free towel, on the table; and computer case opening -> UP.
Makes it SO much easier to work on.

2) Next remove all power cables going to the motherboard, and peripherals. (Harddrive, Optical drive/s, Card Reader, Floppy Drive, etc)

Flop, and/or tie the power cables out of the way, to the outside of the computer case.
If the Power Supply power cables are still in the way, remove the Power Supply.

Look around the outside edges of the motherboard, for motherboard mounting screws; and to the inside.
When removing the screws look to see if fiber washers are used.
Save these washers. The new motherboard may need them also.

(Rule of thumb is;
If the motherboard mounting holes have NO metal rings, fiber washers are used.
Metal rings? No fiber washers )

The motherboard is tilted up to remove. Tilted up on the OPPOSITE side of the I/O area side.

Input/Output area.
This is the area on the back of the computer, that the mouse, keyboard, monitor, audio cables, etc. is.
Components plugged in here plug directly TO the motherboard.

The metal shield that surrounds the I/O area, is the I/O Shield.
If installing a new motherboard, and it is not an original OEM motherboard replacement, use the I/O Shield that comes with the new motherboard.

That is; IF it comes with one; and IF it fits the rectangular hole in the metal framework; of the computer case.

Dell Support shows no documentation; and reviews are sparse.



WAIT, hold the phone!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Broken-Dell-Dimension-L600R-MCM-Computer-Desktop-Parts-/140517075990

OH, I see now said the blind man!

The lever on the Top/Back is depressed, or pulled up on, or pulled back on. This releases the half side of the computer case; that removes.

Also;
The front of the 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.

Power On switch, Power On LED light, HarDDrive activity LED light, and Restart switch; IF used.

BEFORE you do ANYTHING, make notes, and a drawing as to what pins on the motherboard; that those wires go to.
I DO NOT have a pinout chart available for the Front Panel header.

Power cables from Power Supply I can guide you on.

For additional questions, (And I expect many), please post in a Comment.
Regards,
joecoolvette

Happy New Year to you, and yours!

How do i safely remove the cable that attaches to the motherboard on my toshiba laptop


Toshiba satellite motherboard removal.

A motherboard is usually replaced for one of two reasons. You either replace a motherboard because it has gone bad, or you replace an older motherboard with a new or upgraded motherboard. In either case you will have to completely disassemble your laptop to even gain access to your motherboard. Fortunately, the Toshiba Satellite laptop can be completely disassembled even if you don't have a lot of technical knowledge.

Turn off the laptop, disconnect the power cable, remove the battery pack and disconnect any miscellaneous cables and peripheral devices. WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Attach an antistatic wrist bracelet to prevent shock from static electricity. Static electricity can harm your computer's internal parts. Place the laptop face down, and remove the single Phillips-head screw attached to the hard drive cover. Remove the hard drive cover, then set it aside. Remove the single Phillips-head screw attached to the wireless card/memory cover. Remove the cover and set it aside. Slide the hard drive out of its compartment. This will disconnect the hard drive from the computer. Set the hard drive aside very carefully. Push on the ejector tabs on either side of each RAM module. Slide the RAM modules out of their compartments at a 45-degree angle. Remove them from the laptop and set them carefully aside. Disconnect the antenna cable from the wireless card, and then lift the wireless card out of the laptop. Remove the four retaining screws from the modem card. Lift the modem card slightly out of the laptop, and then disconnect the modem cable from the motherboard. Set the modem card aside. Remove the single Phillips-head screw securing the DVD/optical drive. Slide the DVD drive out of the laptop's frame and set it aside. Remove all marked screws from the bottom casing of the laptop, and then place the laptop face up. Open the laptop as far as it will go. Use a small flathead screwdriver to pry up the keyboard bezel. The keyboard bezel is a small plastic strip sitting between the keyboard and the LCD display. Remove the two Phillips-head screws securing the keyboard in place. Lift up on the keyboard and disconnect the keyboard's ribbon connector from the motherboard. Remove the keyboard from the laptop and set it aside very carefully. Close the laptop. Place the laptop vertically so the LCD display hinges are face up. Remove the two Phillips-head screws from the hinges. Set the laptop down and open the laptop as far as it will go. Remove the four Phillips-head screws securing the LCD display. Lift up on the LCD display, and then disconnect the video cable from the motherboard. Remove the LCD display from the laptop and set it aside carefully. Disconnect the DVD control board cable, the touchpad cables and speaker cables from the motherboard. Disengage the plastic latches on the rear of the laptop casing near the hinges, and then remove the top casing from the laptop's base and set it aside. Remove the two Phillips-head screws securing the CPU fan and heat sink in place. Disconnect the fan cable from the motherboard. Remove the fan and heat sink from the motherboard and set it aside. Remove the single Phillips-head screw securing the motherboard to the bottom laptop casing. Disconnect the USB port connector from the motherboard and remove the jack from its housing. Lift the motherboard from the bottom laptop casing and very carefully set it aside.

Hope this helps.

How do I upgrade my ram on my Gateway All in one zx4250?


I too purchased a Gateway ZX4250 and a 4 GB RAM upgrade kit. It took me awhile to figure out how to open the case. Here is what I found.

1) Remove the two rubber pads at the bottom of the case (don't worry they pop right back on).
2) Open the small back cover.
3) Remove the one screw.
*****CAREFUL****
4) This part is a little difficult but just be careful not to use too much force. Take two small flat head screwdrivers and slowly separate the plastic silver front panel from the plastic black back panel. Start at the bottom where the two rubber pads were removed. Work your way around the case, you can see how the clips are connecting the two panels as you work your way around the all-in-one. It shouldn't be too hard just be careful on how much force you use.
5) Once the panels are separated you can now access the hard drive, optical drive and some other components.
6) Disconnect the Hard drive sata cable from the motherboard.
7) Disconnect the other cable right next to the sata cable on the motherboard (I'm not sure as to the purpose of this cable.
8) Remove the screws from the metal plate covering the motherboard. Take careful note that a grounding cable is connected to one screw.
9) Install your RAM.
10) Reverse the procedure to put everything back together.

This whole procedure to upgrade my RAM took about 15 minutes. I hope this helps some of you that are trying to upgrade your RAM. If you have any questions PM me.

Hi,my computer has stopped working and just beeps at me. mother boardis a Microstar P4m266-8235. Please Help......Thank You


Hi there,

This problem could be due to carious problems.

1) Your motherboard is faulty.
2) Your Processor is faulty.
3) Your RAM chip/s are faulty.

Firstly, you will need to unplug your computer and open it up. Then you need to locate the RAM which looks like this:


bearweb_0.jpg

Remove one piece of RAM (assuming you have more than one piece) and try to start the computer again, then if it doesn't work, remove the other chip and reinsert the chip that was first removed and try to power up again.

If it works, then one of the RAM chips were faulty and you will need to replace them.

If the computer still does not work, then either your Motherboard or Processor are faulty.

You should then buy a new motherboard which isn't too expensive (be sure to buy a motherboard that will fit in your computer and will also be able to handle your processor.). Place the motherboard with the RAM in to the computer case after removing the old motherboard. Then carefully remove the processor from the old one and put it in to the new one.

Be sure to re-insert any cables that you have unplugged from the old motherboard in to the new one. Then try and power up once the machine has safely been closed again.

If the computer works, the motherboard was faulty. If it still does not work, then your processor is faulty and you will need to buy a new processor and install it.

Alternatively, you can take the computer to a repairman who will test the various components which will save you the hassle of doing all of that work and it will also save you the cost of having to buy new RAM and a new motherboard if in fact it is actually your processor that is faulty.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a great day and please remember to rate this solution.

Best regards,

I unpluged my fans and dont remember where they hook back up


if they have a 3 pin hookup you can plug them into any matching connector on the motherboard.
If they are the larger 4pin then plug them into any matching connector off of the power supply. Make sure the computer is powered off while you do this. Also dont worry, they are all 12v and you can even get 3pin to 4 pin adapters to connect them straight to the powersupply also.

Dear, friend

When connecting IDE devices in your computer, there are a few rules you need to know about.
First, Master and Slave devices are different for the 80-wire cables and the 40-wire cables.
Inside your computer, you generally have two (2) IDE hard drive controller connections. They look this this 99% of the time:

You have no display, and cant even get to the bios screen.

I cant tell you how many times I have seen pins that are bent or proken on the VGA cable. or even plugged in.
Please check these things and let me know what you find
