The size of a motherboard, is the Motherboard Form Factor.

I'm willing to bet the Presario 5716 uses the Micro-ATX form factor, but could be wrong, and it could be the ATX form factor.

I base this belief on the factor, that I think the Presario 5716 uses a Mid Tower size of computer case.

The motherboard Micro-ATX form factor size, is 9.6 inches by 9.6 inches.
(9.6 inches is about 9 and 5/8th's inches.
5/8th's of an inch = .625)
Metric conversion for the above is 244mm by 244mm)

The ATX form factor size is 9.6 inches by 12 inches. (244mm by 305mm)

Inside the computer case is a Support Plate. The Support Plate, is what the motherboard screws down to.
Sometimes it's a separate piece, but for the Presario 5716 it's probably riveted to the case.

Looking at the Support Plate, you may notice the abbreviations mATX, and ATX by the motherboard mounting holes on the Support Plate.

mATX standing for Micro-ATX, and ATX standing for the ATX motherboard size.
This will be more readily spotted with the motherboard removed.

If so you can use either form factor of motherboard. You may Not be able to reuse the I/O plate, (I/O Shield), at the rear of the computer case. (Input/Output shield - plate)

The shiny rectangular, thin piece of metal, that covers the I/O ports. (Examples: Mouse, Keyboard, and Monitor to name a few I/O ports)

This rectangular plate pops out with a BIT of persuasion. The new motherboard should come with it's own matching I/O Shield.

WARNING!

The inside edges of the computer case, where the I/O Shield is mounted, are SHARP!! Use extreme caution, and perhaps gloves to remove the I/O Shield.

Once the old I/O Shield is removed, it is readily apparent of how to install the new one, and could avoid possible confusion of me trying to explain here.

Sometimes the I/O Shield that comes with the new motherboard is not a direct replacement, as to fitting in the existing rectangular hole, in the computer case.
In this instance, a little modification is in order to the computer case.
(IF so, remember to smooth the edges with a file)

This link to Wikipedia explains the motherboard form factor pretty well, and also has photos, and charts,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motherboard_form_factor

(You can click on any photo to enlarge it. There is a chart at the bottom of the page)

Now you know,

A) Motherboard Form Factor
You can measure the old motherboard for it's size, and know what form factor it is.

B) Support Plate, and the mATX, and ATX designations that may be stamped, or printed near the motherboard mounting holes, on the Support Plate.

If the old motherboard is not obtainable, you can look for the above designations, to see what motherboard form factors apply.

You can also use a tape measure, and measure the distance in-between the mounting holes, and obtain a rough guess.
It won't be that rough a guess, when differentiating between 9.6 inches, and 12 inches.

C) When looking at a website that sells motherboards, you can look in the specifications description, and look for the designation ATX, or MATX, to see if that particular motherboard will fit in your Presario 5716 computer case.

(mATX, and MATX = Micro-ATX)

As for buying a motherboard that will equal the specifications of your old motherboard, good luck.

You can buy an exceedingly cheap motherboard now, that will outperform your old one, like a dragster flying by a snail, in comparison.

You won't be able to reuse the old Processor, and is doubtful that you can reuse the Ram Memory.

The Ram Memory, is SDR Sdram, that operates at a frequency rate of 100MHz FSB. (PC100)

(Single Data Rate Sdram is commonly just referred to as Sdram. Speed is slang for Frequency Rate)

The Processor, is either an Intel Pentium III that fits in a Slot 1 processor socket, or the Pentium III type that fits in a Socket 370 processors socket.

The Pentium III processor, that fits in a Slot 1 processor socket, is about 5-1/4 inches long, and 3 inches tall. It should have a black plastic case around it. Thickness is around 3/4th's of an inch.

The Pentium III processor that fits in a Socket 370 processor socket, is about 1-1/2 inches by 1-1/2 inches, and is square.

The Pentium III processor used in the Compaq Presario 5716 operates at a maximum frequency rate of 450MHz. (MegaHertz)

This gives you an indication, of what a Pentium III Slot 1 processor looks like,

    You are most kind blcos! I appreciate the rating and your testimonial!

    (PS. Don't forget to upgrade the power supply. The Motherboard is the 'Building Block' of a computer, the Processor is the 'Brain', and the Power Supply is the 'Heart'. You know what happens if you have a weak heart)

I don't know which wires to connect and to which slot it should be connected


The most important cables only FIT one plug. If it fits in one but will not fit in ANY others. Thats probably where it goes.
If you need to know which wires for your case such as front usb slots try this pinout diagram
http://image.pinout.net/pinout_files/standard-usb-pinout.gif
Otherwise you will need to be more specific.

Installing new MB in old case


Thank you blcos, I appreciate that.
I didn't know what level of tech/fabricator you are, and I now see you are very competent.

My two-fold proposed solution is,

A) IF, the Support Plate you have for the motherboard you have on hand, is too small in area to just rivet it to the existing metal 'Ribcage' metal frame work,

1) Cut the inner part of the existing Support Plate/Framework, so that there is a large rectangular hole in the center, leaving a 'Frame' around the edge.

The 'frame' being approximately 1 inch wide, or whatever is compatible.
(Would resemble a picture frame when done)
Leaving enough area for the new Support Plate to rivet to it.
(Pop rivet)

A minor, (Major?) problem is that the existing Support Plate would have to be removed from the 'Ribcage' frame work, in order to cut a rectangular hole in the center.

(Unless you have a large hole made, and use a metal nibbler cutter.
Example: http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=96661 )

The rivets would be drilled out, with pop rivets to reinstall.

The brass standoff's, or plastic spacers would have to be the right height, in order for the I/O ports on the motherboard to line up with the holes in the I/O Shield.
Or modifications made to them, or the I/O Shield.

The I/O Shield not only keeps dust out, and helps form a tighter seal for air flow inside the computer case, but also is a Radio Frequency interference shield.

B) Proposal 2 was to use the existing Support Plate, and mount the new Support Plate on top, with modifications to the 'Bumps' on the old Support Plate, and to the I/O Shield, and spacers used.
(Plastic spacers, or metal brass standoff's)

As you stated, flatten the Bumps down

The I/O Shield may have to have one side reduced, (Outside case edge), so that the I/O ports will line up with the holes in the I/O Shield.

The extensions, (Spacers or Standoff's), may have to be reduced in height, or substituted with a compatible item that will work, so that the I/O ports line up with the holes in the I/O Shield.

Whatever line of modification you use, I suggest that a gap be created in-between the Support Plate, and Motherboard for air flow, and also to keep the solder joints on the bottom of the motherboard, from touching the Support Plate.

If possible I would like to know how this comes out.

Regards,
joecoolvette

Will new micro atx boards fit inside of a hp 4550z case?


Yes i think you will be ok as i can see and your old motherboard is microatx but i strongly recommend you to change case because is not only about motherboard.You will need and better and new power supply and if you want to build a good system with air flow for not overheating your new cpu and other hardware i strongly recommend you to change and chassis!!You can find a "nice" case with $50-$70 bucks if you dont want to spend money on case,but you will need power supply for sure

Having trouble removing pin from men's Ebel 1911


Watchmakers are using special pin removing tools and punches. You can find them on Ebay. If you have pins you can not damage threads as pins do not have any threads - they are friction fitted. Punch must be the size of the pin end you can see. Some pins come out easily, some quite hard, so, use appropriate strength to drive pins out. In case if there are screws - use small screwdriver to fit in the slotted screw end and unscrew the screw.
Rate me, plz.

Aftermarket case trying to figure out the wiring not full plugs and don't know where on motherboard they fit anyone have my solution it's a hp board ms6577ver 4.1


if the motherboard is atx and the power supply is atx then the mb connectors should be marked on the mb and power supply. the mb side you will need a magnifier to read the small print. they will be in a line together somewhere near the lower corner of the board, in a straight line. usually rst is reset - hdd led is hard drive led and the square 20 pin conn, goes somewhere near the processor. if you have at board or powersupply it won't work they both have to be the same form factor. there are others and not knowing the case or ps i cant give you more info.

USB ports


When you computer boots up you need to enter the cmos mode. Normallly it's the F-8 fuction key, but sometimes it can vary from pc to co. When you get inside the CMOS screen look for the usb ports, they should have a Enable/Disable. I am pretty sure that for some reason, the default is Disable.

Try this and let me know if this fixes the issue.

CD will not open Compaq 5716


Four/five year old Compaq system boards also develop leaks in some of the capacitors that cause the IDE channels to develop read problems. Look for signs of "damage" near the IDE cable connectors.
In addition, the error recovery of the Windows Setup program is, well "really bad". It can not handle CD-Rom or CD errors very well. With this type of problem you have to boot with a startup diskette and see if you can read most of the disk drive. Then create a work folder on the disk drive and copy the contents of the WinXP folder to the temp folder on the disk drive. Then run the Setup from the disk drive.
In some cases like this, you have pull out the CD-Rom drive and if it is on its own IDE cable, change Compaq's default jumper setting from CS (Cable Select) to MS (Master). Usually works a lot better.
The reason you have not had "any trouble" with the drive (that you know about) is that Windows has very good error recover, it just keeps trying, and does not tell you about problems unless there is nothing it can do to get around the problem.





Try a different CD. Can be a bad CD.
Try looking at device manager to confirm that the PC sees the drive.

Right-click on MY Computer and select properties
Go to Hardware and select Device Manager

Try using a CD cleaner as the laser that reads the CD is dirty.
