Question about E-Machines T6532 PC Desktop

2 Answers

I had to replace the motherboard on my machine, and did not note the connections for the 3 cables from the from panel that go to the pins on JFP1 of the MSI K8MGN2 board. Everything else was easy, but the machine won't boot. I spent $60 on my card with Emachines tech support a week ago, and following their testing, replaced the motherboard. I just need to get the pins on JFP1 correct, I think.

    On this board, the JfP1 pinset is color coded. for pins 1 - 9.
    My cables read as follows: Power SW, Power LED, HDD LED.
    I just need to know which pins each cable should go to.


  • dgeorgep Sep 10, 2009

    All connections except the ones to JFP1 are correct.
    I can't get it to boot, so I can't check the BIOS

    That is the same diagram as the MSI documentation.
    I tried that, but still no boot. There was not a rest switch cable, so that is a moot point.
    I referenced everything else against the MSI documentation, but still no boot.

    Any suggestions will be welcome.

    The poser supply seems to work. Fans spin, and it seems like the hard drive spins also.
    The video card is integrated into the motherboard. Not like the old days when you could just swap them out.

    I'm going to take a break from this. I spent the past 1 1/2 - 2 weeks disinfecting a daughter's laptop, and the desktop started fading a week ago. Perhaps it is time for the sledgehammer.

    Thanks for the feedback.



    The causes for no boot may be:




    1) A malfunctioning power supply: Check if the fans are working and lights are on to see if the power supply is working or not. Also, check whether the hard-disk is spinning or not (You'll be able to hear it spin or feel the vibrations)




    2) A failed power switch on the front panel.




    3) A piece of hardware like video card or sound card has malfunctioned. Try to boot after removing one card at a time so that the defective hardware can be identified.




    4) Also, sometimes the motherboard is not properly installed in the cabinet, leading to a desktop board short. Remove the motherboard from the cabinet, and place it on an anti-static mat or foam pad. Install/connect the
    minimum required components (processor, memory, power supply, video).
    Try powering it up. (See image)








    Hope this helps. Thanks.

Read carefully on motherobrd corner area you find pin for PWR on/off, RESET etc. Read on front cables then fixed it in appropriate pins. If your computer not boot then check ATX power connector from smps to bord. Refix RAM memory. Reconnect connection to harddisk. Check in bios that your harddisk is detected. Pull cmos cell from motherbord for 10 minutes so all settings are defaults. Let me know if you need more assistanse. Thanks

Put your mouse cursor in the middle of the photo. Now move it around. Any bigger than that, and you need a microscope.

Bottom RIGHT corner. See where it states JFP1? From it go UP the motherboard. There is a mounting hole, then the Front Panel header.

JFP1

It has Black, and Red, and Yellow, and Green, and Blue in it, below it's contact pins.

MicroStar International Support > MSI K8MM-V motherboard > Support Main page,

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8MM-V.html

Hover your mouse on Download.
(Overview / Specification / Download / Support / etc)

In the drop down list click on - Manual

Under the Download subheading click on the blue - M7142v1.0.zip

Click on either Download 1, Download 2, or Download 3.
(Or click on the country name nearest yours. I have never seen Download 1, 2, and 3 before)

A small window will come up on the right -
Opening M7142v1.0.zip

Make SURE there is a Green dot, in the small circle to the left of Save File.
If there isn't; left-click in the empty circle to the left of Save File.
Now go to the bottom of the small window, and click on OK.

A small window will come up on the left.
Allow the file to fully download, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

Another small window will come up.
Go to the far left of this window, and click on - Extract all files

At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.

Now DOUBLE-click on the file name - M7142v1.0,
next to the red Adobe PDF icon.

There is your motherboard manual.

The PDF file page, and the actual manual's page, are not the same number of page.
Go to Page 5 - Adobe Reader page number, or Page 1 - Actual manual page number.

Be sure to note JFP1 and JFP2.
(Junction Front Panel 1 and Junction Front Panel 2)

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.

The Front Panel header is JFP1.
JFP2 is an auxiliary front panel header. Explanation follows.

JFP1 is two columns of pins.
5 on the Left side; 4 on the Right side.

Pins on the Left side are numbered ODD.
Pins on the Right side are numbered EVEN.

Starting at the Top, coming down on the Left side;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

Starting at the Top, coming down on the Right side;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.
There is NO pin 10.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light. Usually Red)
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.
Probably 5 Volts used by the factory for testing the motherboard.

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

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

F) There is NO pin 10.

JFP2 is to the Left of JFP1.
Two rows of pins.
3 pins on the Top row; 4 pins on the Bottom row.

The 4 pins on the Bottom row are for a speaker.
For an internal speaker so you can hear BIOS Beep Codes.

Pin 2 is all the way to the Right; Pin 8 all the way to the Left.
(2, 4, 6, and 8)
Believe Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire. Pin 8 the Negative ( - ) wire.

The 3 pins on top are for a Power On LED light, that has 3 wires.
A dual color LED. (Yellow/Green? Normal/Turbo)

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.

Front panel connection to mother board Power switch pin


Hi careyfraser,

pcsyke_140.jpg


1. There are 8 wires from the front panel's casing, excluding USB connectors and front audio cable.

2. Just plug the front panel switch headers to the F_Panel main board connectors. 1 & 2 are positive, if the led do not light change polarity but Im sure it will.

Note:The mainboard provides a front panel connector for electrical connection to the front panel switches and LEDs. JFP1 is compliant with Intel® Front Panel I/O Connectivity Design Guide.


Hopefully this information helps.

How to hook up the face plate of a emachine w3400 Wich includes 3 wires 1 power butten and 2 led lights


Look at the pinout of the Front Panel header, of the eMachine W3400's motherboard.

The plastic front of the computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the cables (Wires) from the Front Panel connect to,
is the Front Panel header.

The motherboard for an eMachines W3400 desktop computer is an MSI ms-7145
(Micro Star International)

Orient the motherboard in your view so that we are both looking at it the same way.
Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, white PCI slots (3) to the Bottom.

JFP1 is the Front Panel header.
(Junction Front Panel 1)

JFP1 is on the Bottom Right corner. There are two columns of pins arranged vertically.
(The JFP1 header runs parallel to the Right side of the motherboard)

The Left side column of the JFP1 header is numbered Odd.
Starting at the Top and going Down, the pins are numbered;
1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

The Right side column is numbered Even.
Starting at the Top and going Down, the pins are numbered:
2, 4, 6, and 8.
There is NO Pin 10

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive Activity LED light. (HDD)
If the LED light is dim will operating switch the wires around

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch. (Reset button)
> IF Used

C) Pin 9 is Not used. (NC. No Connection)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light (If dim switch the wires around)

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

Trace the wires back to the Power On switch. Even if it means temporarily removing part of the Front Panel to see.

Same with the LED lights.
See which wires go to the Power On LED, and HDD Activity LED. (Harddrive Activity LED)

Follow the 3 wires, and tell me where they go to on the Front Panel.
USB port?
Memory Card Reader?
Firewire port? (a1394)

They should be etched on the motherboard. Also the MB manual should note how they are connected. The connector will have a triangle or arrow head on one side. That is the positive wire. If you get them backwards the leds won't work right if at all.

Emachine W3410,the main three wire from the motherboard to the power botton on and off switch was remove and iam not sure wish pin they go to .power led, power sw, H.D.D.led,


The eMachines W3410 uses an MSI ms-7145 motherboard.
Also known as RS480M

This is MSI Support, and the download page for the motherboard manual, for the RS480M motherboard,

http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=1&prod_no=204

To the Right of the photo of the motherboard, you will see a gray bar with, BIOS, Driver, Utility, Manual, and RSS.
Left-click on Manual.

On the next page look under the heading to the right - Document.
Left-click on the blue - E7145v2.1.zip

On the final page click on the country nearest yours.
A small window will come up with the heading -
Opening E7145v2.1.zip

Be sure that Save File has a green dot, in the empty circle to the left.
[If not, Left-click on the empty circle to the left of Save File]
Now click on OK, below.

Where this file will go.
If you Do Not, have your documents set to save to your My Documents folder (Documents for Vista), the file will go to your desktop screen.

In either place Double-click on the file. Now go up to the left, and click on - Extract All Files.
Click on Next, and Finish.

You will now see a PDF icon. Double-click on this icon.
Go to Page 15.

The plastic panel on the front of your computer is the Front Panel.
This is where the Power On switch, Power On LED, and HDD LED are located.

The connector on the motherboard where the cables (Wires) attach to, is the Front Panel header.
The front panel header is a series of pins, sticking up out of the motherboard.

The MSI ms-7145 motherboard, (RS480M) has the Front Panel header separated into two headers.

JFP1, and JFP2

Looking at the motherboard with the Processor socket to the top, and the Ram Memory slots to the right, the JFP1, and JFP2 front panel headers are located at the extreme bottom Right, of the motherboard.

[Use the Zoom In feature (+ at top of file) to enlarge the motherboard layout on Page 15]

Now go to Page 38.
Page 38 shows the connections for the JFP1, and JFP2 headers.

The JFP1 header, and the JFP2 header, consists of two rows of pins in a horizontal column.
The pins are arranged parallel, to the bottom edge of the motherboard.

Right above the JFP1, and JFP2 header may be three pins, with two of the pins have a jumper. We will not concern ourselves with this jumper header (BIOS with Protect Jumper)

The JFP1, and JFP2 headers are close together. There is no separation in-between them.

The JFP2 header is for an internal speaker.
The JFP1 header is for the Front Panel cables.

The JFP1 header pins start from the right side of the motherboard, and go towards the left.

There are 5 pins across the Bottom. (Going from right to left)
There is NO pin, then there are 4 pins across the Top.
(Again, going from Right towards the left)

The top row of pins are numbered Evenly.
The bottom row of pins are numbered Odd.

Starting on the Right side, going towards the left for the Top row of pins, the pins are numbered,
10 (NO pin for 10), 8, 6, 4, and 2.

Starting on the Right side, going towards the left for the Bottom row of pins, the pins are numbered,
9, 7, 5, 3, and 1.

1) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED.

2) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch

3) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED

4) Pins 5 and 7 are used for a Reset switch. (If applicable)

5) Pin 9 is not used.

The motherboard in your computer is an MSI MS-7145, which is also called RS480M. You can download a copy of the manual here. The front panel connections are on page 2-20.

Looking at the header JFP1, pins 1 through 9 (odd numbers) are the front row, pins 2 through 10 are the back. Pin 10 is the missing pin. The power switch connects to pins 6 and 8. The power LED connects to pins 2 and 4. The HDD LED connects to pins 1 and 3. The reset button, if used, connects to pins 5 and 7.

Power switch,reset switch,power led connections to motherboard?


Hi ramjet007;

This is strange because MSI doesn't have information on the 7548, since it was made directly for HP. Here is a diagram of another MSI similiar and usually they have their pins on their jumpers pretty much the same. You would use JFP1, And Pin's 1&3 would be the hard drive, 2 & 4 would be the LED, 6 & 8 would be the power switch, and 5&7 would be the reset switch. I know your motherboard is setup differnently, but your JFP1 should be in the right hand corner all by itself.

Need help on connecting up motherboard to rest of pc


I downloaded the PDF Motherboard Manual for the MSI MS-6380E Version 1.0, just now.

Let's take a look at that JFP1 header.
This view is looking at the JFP1 header, sitting at the bottom right of the motherboard, TO THE LEFT of the JFP2 header. The JFP2 header is at the very bottom right hand corner. The JFP1 header is just to the left of it. The processor is to the Top/Middle.


Looking at the pins going across the top of the JFP1 header, they are as follows,
2, 4, 6, 8, and there is no 10. There is no pin for 10.
Looking at the pins going across the bottom, they are as follows,
1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

Pins 6 & 8 are for the Power On switch.
Pins 2 & 4 are for the Power On light, (LED light)
Pins 1 & 3 are for the HarDDrive activity light.
Pins 5 & 7 are used for a Reset switch. (IF, you have one)

Should you not have the Motherboard Manual, go here,
http://motherboards.org/mobot/manuals/MSI/MS-6380E/
(If this doesn't come up as a link, copy and paste it into your address bar, then press the Enter key)
On this page click on ->Download <- to the right of
File: 6380ev1.0.exe Version: - - Release Date: - -

When you do a small window will come up. Click on the empty circle to the left of -> Save.
This file will be saved either directly to your deswktop screen, or your My Documents folder. I don't know how you have your downloads set up to be saved. I save them to my My Documents folder.

Once you see this file, double-click on it. It's a WinRar file. There will be a Microsoft 'Squawk Box' that comes up. "Warning this publisher could not be verified, ya-da, ya-da"

Ignore it! Click on -> Run
Now the WinRAR extraction archive will come up.
Click on Run.

Now go to the PDF file and double-click on it.
There's your Motherboard Manual.
