Question about E-Machines D6405 (RBD6405) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Which slot?! I have no idea what I have in my computer as far as the motherboard goes.. All I know is that I have a D4605 emachine with everything that it comes with, but with an extra 512 mb memory card. Anyway, I ordered a graphics card to improve my game playing abilities and it's an XFX GeForce 6200 256MB AGP w/DVI/TV-OUT.. I'm not sure that it's compatible with my computer, because when I opened up my computer, there are only 2 dark blue and 1 purple slot left to put anything into. From my understanding, the graphics card slot would have to be brown, black, or white. No one can seem to help me with this, and I don't know what to do! I don't want to try to put it into the wrong slot and everything get messed up. Please help!! Thanks in advance. =)

Most things in a PC fit in one slot, and no that will help us here. The color also is a non-factor, since vendors use a lot of different colors.

An AGP slot is typically one of the slots closest to your CPU. It will also be set back in relation to the PCI slot below it, and they typically have a latch on them. Here is a picture of what it should look like (PCI is the bottom, AGP is the top). Also, if you look close enough you should see a name by the slot, like in the picture. If you don't have an AGP slot, they sell PCI versions also. If you have a long slot with the short part opposite of the PCI shown below (on the left instead of the right), then you have PCI Express.Which slot?! - bec65de.jpg

What is the connection sequence for the on/off switch to intel motherboard D9545gccrg1? the red/white power sw plug and blue/white power led plugs were pulled off motherboard by mistake and do not know...

A big problem is that eMachines does not support this configuration any more.The t5088 is almost 6 years old now, so the only support will come from someone who actually owns one and who can look at the connections. There is still support on Intel's website for the MB (look for D945GCC). But, remember that they have no control how the computer assembler uses the motherboard. They have a downloadable technical guide which is slightly useful. I looked at two different tech guides for that motherboard, but I did not see anything about blue/white cables. The reason for that is that eMachines want to keep their configurations a secret to make sure that you buy another computer if you have any problems. Perhaps the best solution is to look to replacing the computer. (You would be surprised to see the advances since you bought that eMachine!) If you choose to do that, you can carefully remove the hard drive(s) from the old eMachine and install it(them) as an additional harddrive(s) on the new computer. That way you still have access to your old files. Keep in mind that when you do that, you will lose the ability to use the programs on the old hard drive. You will need to re-install the old programs, but your data (documents, etc) should still be intact.

This option is not for the weak-hearted: you can ruin the motherboard if you connect wrong. The other option, if you are brave, is to disconnect everything from the motherboard except for the power supply (this way if your experimentation does not work, then you "only" fry the motherboard and not the other items) and try one configuration. If it works fine. If not you will have to try other configurations. You run the risk of ruining the motherboard if you experiment.

After reading an article about Emachines awhile back, I found out the reason you can't find the schematic- it isn't available, as some motherboards are made specifically for Emachines and therefore not distributed, as they might normally be, but again, others are, but you have to identify them and go through another source to get them- Emachines, appartantly, will not supply them. All is not lost, however...all motherboards have, basically, the same hookups and connectors for the power supplies, hard drives, etc.- they are standard. I found a web blog that explains the power switch, reset, and power led, which will help. Here it is:
This site will explain about the 24 pin connector from the power supply
If you google "motherboard wiring" you will find sites that have illustrations of the motherboard, and explain which connectors go to which sockets, and how to identify them.
With a little patience and determination, you should be able to hook everything up from the various blogs on the net. Hope this helps.

Need to re-attach power button cable, hard drive

The manual for your computer is available from emachines, p.168 shows the info you need (replacing the front I/O panel)

The good news is that you can't harm the computer by connecting the wires wrong and the bad news is they just won't work the way they are supposed too if not connected properly. The LED's must have the correct polarity to work.
In general, if you look real close (as in magnifying glass and flash light) you will see the ID for each set of pins is printed on the motherboard (pwr,rst,HDD,pwr sw,speaker) Just match what it says on the motherboard to what it says on the wires. Don't worry if you get the polarity wrong. If a light doesn't work just swap the two wires. The colored wires should be positve (+), though. The reset (rst) and power switch (pwr sw) wires don't require polarity.
These instructions are for most computers in general, YMMV.

Emachine motherboard no model number

Check out this site provided for a program called SIW. Download the free english version and install. It will tell you everything about your computer that you ever needed to know. Check the motherboard section for your specifics, and try the sound card section to see teh specifics on your card. This will help you in your search for the correct drivers.

New power supply problem

One of the reasons that this could be is that the power supply doesn't have enough power to power everything. Trying exchanging it for another one that has more watts. If this is an exact replacement as far as the wattage goes, then your problem may lie else where, and you may want to take it to a reputable local computer repair shop for further inspection.

Emachine t2642 power supply

Apparently this model has a bad motherboard, which manifests as a power warning and eventually a refusal to boot up. You can replace the power supply (as far as I know, any generic one 250-watt or better will work) but it's unlikely to help. You can buy a new motherboard (and new power supply, if you want to) direct from eMachines, but it's also likely to fail pretty soon. Your best bet is to get a new computer (NOT an eMachines one) and put your hard drive in as a slave so you can get your data off.

Power button wiring

A quick google determined your emachines model w2040 is equipped with FIC motherboard AM37. Download the manual from
You'll find the pinout info for your wiring on page 13.
Most motherboards also have the pinouts silkscreened onto the board itself.

Upgrade to a new motherboard?

I think there may be another issue.. It could be the power supply.. Have you tried a new one?

Have you installed any additional ram lately?

You can use the old XP software with a new motherboard, but it can be a pain in the **** to set-up if it is the OEM version of Windows, or a Recovery Disk that came with your machine..

What you could do, if you bought another motherboard, find someone with a Genuine Windows XP disk, and use your Product Key to install it..
