Adding anothe rmonitor

Hi,

I've got a desktop emachines which is about 5 years old. it has D845GVSR motherboard. I have been trying to find out a way to add another monitor (so that I can use two monitors), but the m/b does not have "usual" PCI or AGP extra slots. The mother board, instead, has a video audio connector - but what /which video card do I need to connect to that slot? One of local shops assistant told me there is A/V card which works with a motherboard with no PCI or AGP slots. The card I was told is XFX Geforce Graphic card, 6600GT 256MB AGP which not many shops has....

Please advice me what is the best way to achieve my need.

Thanks,

Hiro

You probably are not going to do it with the E-Machine at all.
E-machines like Dell and a few others are specially designed integrated units which will do the job they are designed to do but have little or no 'upgradability'
Spending money on new components is inevitably a lost cause.
Save your pennies and buy a new general purpose machine.

Emachine T5234 beeps 5 times and won't turn on


5 Short BeepsYour motherboard is complaining. Try reseating the memory and rebooting. If that doesn't help, you should consider another motherboard. You could probably get away with just replacing the CPU, but that's not too cost-effective. Its just time to upgrade!

How do i hook up usb button in intel 845 motherboard


Well, that's a start. You know you have an Intel motherboard in your eMachines, that uses an Intel 845 motherboard chipset.

It is an Intel D845GVSR motherboard.

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845gvsr/sb/cs-008823.htm

Left-click on the blue -
Intel Desktop Board D845GVSR Product Guide (PDF)

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
(I would advise upgrading to Adobe Reader X { 10 }, however, if you don't have it )

After you click on the above link, it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up. (Took 6 seconds just now. Adobe Reader X, and medium speed DSL connection)

At the top of the PDF file, is the PDF file page number box.
It is to the left of the Down Arrow.
Go to Page 11.
T is the Front Panel USB header.

This is where the USB ports on the front of the computer, (Front Panel) connect to.

Go to Page 31.
E is the Front Panel USB header.
The Front Panel USB header is J9F2.

Observe the numbers next to the pins.
Go to Page 33.
This is the pinout for the Front Panel USB header, using those contact pin numbers.

1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 = one USB port
2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 = one USB port

Notice pins 9 and 10 are not used.

You can connect two USB ports to this header.

The pinout of ANY USB connector, female, or male, is set to a Standard.

This is the standard pinout for USB connectors,

http://pinouts.ru/Slots/USB_pinout.shtml

In case you cannot download the Intel D845GVSR motherboard manual;

Looking at the motherboard in it's normal position, installed into the computer case, the USB header is on the Bottom edge of the motherboard.

It is to the immediate Right, of the bottom white PCI slot (PCI 3)
It is to the Left of the motherboard mounting hole.
It is Below the Intel 82801DB, Southbridge chip.

Two rows of pins.
5 across the Top row, 4 across the Bottom row.

STARTING on the Left side, (Towards the white PCI slot), and going towards the Right, the pins on Top are numbered,
Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10

STARTING on the Left side, (Towards the white PCI slot), and going towards the Right, the pins on Bottom are numbered,
Pins 1, 3, 5, and 7

Pins 1, 3, 5, and 7 = One USB connection
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8 = One USB connection

Pin 9, and Pin 10 are Not used. (N/C. No Connection)

A) Pin 1 is for Power

B) Pin 3 is for D-
The Data, or Signal wire. It is the Negative connection

C) Pin 5 is for D+
The other Data, or Signal wire. It is the Positive connection

D) Pin 7 is for Ground

Going to the other USB header;
A) Pin 2 is for Power

B) Pin 4 is for D-

C) Pin 6 is for D+

Out of curiosity which eMachines is this?

My e-machine (T2332? or T2382? Can't remember for sure) about 5 years old was working fine yesterday. Then today, I go to turn it on and I press the power button on the front and the light just...


Hi there,

I would request you to check for the power calbe. Try and change the power cable and check if that works and make sure there is no continous beep on the machine as it would be a issue with RAM or hard drive.


Hope this helps you. I would request you to give a feedback on this solution as it would be appreciated.


Thank you.

Where can i place in my motherboard power & reset jumper, i need diagram of my motherboard


For any desktop computer using Windows:

The main power cable coming from the Power Supply, is an ATX main power cable.

It is the power cable with the longest connector.
It will either be a 20-pin, or a 24-pin connector.

IF, this is directly towards an eMachine T2893 Desktop PC, it uses an Intel D845GVSR motherboard.

Also note that eMachines Support > Specifications, states the T2893 uses an Intel 845GV motherboard chipset,
( Chipset ),

http://support.gateway.com/emachines/PC/eMac/4176/4176sp5.shtml

Info on the Intel 845GV chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

This is the download link for the motherboard manual, for the Intel D845GVSR motherboard,

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845gvsr/sb/cs-008823.htm

Scroll down, and click on the blue -
Intel Desktop Board D845GVSR Product Guide (PDF)

The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.

{ 10 seconds, fully loaded. Adobe Reader 10 (X), and medium speed DSL connection }

The plastic front of your desktop computer is the Front Panel.

The rectangular area of pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header. (Sometimes abbreviated FP1 on the motherboard )

Looking at your motherboard as it's installed in the computer case, the Processor is to the Top, Ram Memory to the Right, and the long white PCI slots to the Bottom.

The Front Panel header is on the Bottom of the motherboard, under the CMOS round battery.

There are two rows of pins.
4 across the top, and 5 across the bottom.
{ Top row 4 pins, space
Bottom row 5 pins }

The Top row of pins are numbered Even.
The Bottom row of pins are numbered Odd.

Starting from the Left side of the header going to the right, on the Top row;
{ Left side of the motherboard going towards the right side of the motherboard }

Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is No pin 10.

Starting from the Left side of the header going to the right, on the Bottom row;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the harddrive LED light is dim when operating, switch the wires around.

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

C) Pin 9 is for 5 Volt (DC) power. Not used.

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

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

To the right, and up, is the BIOS Configuration Jumper Block.
3 pins.
Pin 1 is towards the CMOS battery.

Normal default is the jumper is on Pins 1 and 2.
To configure it is placed on Pins 2 and 3, BUT in a proper method.
Read on Page 37.

Dell Inspiron 531 (desktop) won?t turn on/boot


You've either got a bad motherboard or a bad processor (I'd lean to the motherboard being bad). I would honestly take this into a computer repair shop and have them check both.

Need large disc support for old emachine, flash bios? or try restore cds?


Hi,
flashing a bios, can render your machine/motherboard useless.
You should always ensure any bios download is from a trusted source. if you experience a power failure, or an incomplete bios file. your computers as good as dead.
Windows 95/98 only supports disk drives to a certain capacity. if you updated to windows 2000/ME/XP your problems may be solved. I,d certainly try that first.
Bios flashing Last resort, even after finding a reliable bios update. also ensure the bios file is 256mb-512mb or equivalent. as this is standard bios file size.
Finally check that your hard-drive does not have a jumper ( Small white/black ) plastic block restricting the drives registered size.
When you install windows XP, it will ask you if you wish to enable LBA ( large block Allocation ) Select Y ( yes )
