Question about E-Machines T1360 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I don't know what this is

I took apart my old, broken t1360 and found the chip that has the two usb ports and a mike and speaker port.
This is from the front of the case, at the bottom.

I'm looking for a replacement that is exactly the same size, supports usb 2.0, and is compatable with most motherboards.

or if that doesn't exist, I'm just wondering who made this and if it will work on a new motherboard.

Re: I don't know what this is


It is possible that it will work on a new motherboard as long as the cables connects it to the motherboard matches. On your new mobo you should see pins for for usb and sound to plug to the mobo..most new cases have this though so you shouldnt really need it. However if you want to reuse your case to take advantage of the chip it should fit.

good luck

First this may be lebgthy, I apologize.. ok so a few days ago i was checking emails on my desktop pc while i had my nook color charging on the front usb2.0 port when i noticed a hot/electrical fire type...

I used to have a two year old son. His mother fed him and now he's twenty-five and on his own. I blame her. They are so much fun!

Most important of all. You do not mention whether your smoke detector(s) went off. Please make sure they are all in working order.
What does Device Manager have to say about your USB ports? If you see that any are disabled, it would confirm that the system handled a failure. You may look into Windows forums for registry details if you want but I won't bother with that here.

Let's assume that the smell was from 'magic smoke' escaping from chips inside your system. (That is actual computer science folklore that you can Google). You were close and noticed the smell before it dissipated, too weak to set off your smoke detectors.

The behavior of Windows will vary from version to version but if Windows disabled failing ports, changing the registry value probably won't help. I don't know if it would hurt by restarting the damaged device. If the magic smoke has escaped, the associated chips will never work again.

You may have one or more empty expansion slots in your system. That might allow you to add additional USB ports but you can probably get by with a USB hub connected to the working ports in the back. I'd charge the Nook somewhere else. Use it's own charger or get one of those AC plugs that acts as a USB charger.

If the Nook melts anything else, you might want to exchange it under warranty. Or hire it out to one of those Quebec companies that burns down hotels.

I dont have a USB drive in my desktop

In old motherboards USB port is not available, so you can purchase USB port card with cheap price and you can fix it to PCI or PCIe slot...

My old speakers dont work with my new pc

there could be 3 problems A) the speakers are broken B) if its a new pc it probably has a sound card with 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound capabilities so you might have plugged it into the wrong port C) since it is now this probably isn't correct but your port could be broken
To see if its problem A simply get a new set of speakers and plug them in see if it works If its B then make sure its pluged in to the green input and it says "out" not side center or back if its C return the comp and get a new one
And btw make sure you check the port with the old one and the new one to make sure that even thought you plugged it into the right port it didn't work because it was broken

Usb not found aspire t160


i,d check the bios setup. to ensure that USB devices are enabled.
Or that there are no conflicting devices:- My Computer/Control Panel/System/Device Manager.
Also some motherboards, have jumpers to set the USB ports on/off.
Try using a different port if you have 1 available, or purchase an individual PCI-Card with USB Ports On.

I have an rs232 cable attached to kyrptview cable box via a usb adaptor.. Cant get my pc to see the box.. its a dell pentium 4 on windows xp.. any help pls

I assume the RS232 cable is going to a serial port? I think you should add a USB card to your system. The old async chips used to support RS232 ports are not fast enough to take USB info.

I searched and found a 1/2 height PCI card with 2 USB ports, plus a internal connector for two more ports. My little NetVista will not hold a full-height PCI card. Get out your tin snips.
Works like a charm !
FYI: I disabled the BIOS USB support for the old ports, and plugged the old MB cable into the new PCI card. I now have two 2.0 ports on the front, and two 2.0 ports on the back. However, I lost the ability to boot from USB
