How do i find my product

If you need to identify your motherboard (the model number), you can do one of the below three things.
Identifying through Windows or other utility
Visually identifying
If you're trying to identify the motherboard for any of the reasons below, view these links for additional related information.
Motherboard form factor
Chipset or driver update
Product Listing or specifications
Replacement or repair
Identifying through Windows or other utility
First option is to view the manufacturer and model number in your Windows system, using the System Information utility. To access this utility, follow the steps below.
1.Click Start
2.Open All Programs, Accessories, System Tools and click System Information.
This utility provides a good bit of information about your computer. On the System Summary screen, you will find the motherboard manufacturer (System Manufacturer) and motherboard model (System Model). For example, for a computer with a MSImotherboard, the manufacturer would be MICRO-STAR INTERNATIONAL and a System Model of MS-7599. The Model is the model number of the motherboard.
Note: If your computer is an OEM computer, such as a Dell or Hewlett Packard, the model number may be the model number of your computer and not motherboard. For these computers, we suggest referring to the technical documentation for the model of the computer. These documents can be downloaded directly from the computer manufacturer.
The documentation or technical notes for your computer or motherboard also include the motherboard information. PDF versions of these documents can be downloaded from thecomputer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer website.
Visually identifying
Finally, every computer motherboard has a silk screened name of the model and the manufacturer printed on the motherboard. For example, in the picture below, this motherboard has the model name printed above the memory slots. Click the image below to get a larger view of this picture.
Tip: If you are unable to locate a manufacturer or model number of the motherboard, but are able to locate an FCC identification number, it is recommended that you perform an FCC search using that number. Additional information about FCC numbers and how to search for information about an FCC number can be found on our FCC dictionary definition page.

Problem with panel front conector in Dell Dimension 2200 motherbo

The following information is to assist you in performing the right connections. You should take precautionary measures such as grounding yourself and completely disconnecting the PC form any source of power.

This picture shows the connector for the front panel power button, reset button, and power and hard disk lights: an 8x2 pin connector with 1 pin missing:

The table below lists the pinouts for the connector. The orientation of this table is the same as the picture above, this shows the top part of the connector. All the pins below pin 8 appear to be non-connected.


Each pair of pins labeled Power and Reset goes to the 2 wires for the corresponding button. The hard disk and power LED wires connect to the corresponding LEDs, you need to ensure the proper polarity of the + and - wires for each LED or it will not illuminate.

The above information is for your information only.

I have a projector connected to my lap top. The only picture I get on the projector is the picture of my desktop WITHOUT the icons. I cannot see anything else through the projector. If I open a document...

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

* Refer to "second monitor" as being the projection screen..

When you set up your dual screen, you have three possible configurations:

1. You can have the desktop with all icons, toolbars, etc. on one monitor and the other screen merely is a companion to the main monitor. This means you would have to click and drag the programs you open to the other side of the monitor.

In your case, this is how it is configured and is generally called an "extended desktop.

2. Another configuration is to disable the main monitor and just view the projector as your main monitor. Most likely, we will want to avoid this one (but if this happens you will understand what happened and why the screen is blacked out on main monitor.)

3. This would be the ideal configuration for dual screens as both the projector and the monitor have the exact same thing showing on them. To set your dual monitors up this ay, follow these instructions.

Open the display (by following pictures previously or from control panel) and uncheck mark the box that says "extend my windows desktop into this monitor." Hit apply and okay. This will set the montitor and projector to be exactly the same.


Please let me know if you have any questions.

I am just in the process of the same repair, and am at this step.

Look at the picture on step 7 of this guide:

See where the red arrow is pointing? i used 2 slot screwdrivers, one on either side of this thing, and pushed up, towards the screen gently and then popped the keyboard up and over this catch.

Then, with the part of the keyboard nearest the screen held up on a bit of an angle, use a slot screwdriver to push from the bottom of the keybaord, near the ctrl and alt keys and it will pop right out.
