Question about eMachines T6534 PC Desktop
Schematics for motherboards can be different but most have a series of pins that those plugs are plugged into. Here is a link that will guide you through the process. The pins are labeled POWER/LED/SPEAKER if you look closely. Hope this helps.

The eMachines T6534 Desktop PC uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard,
also known as K8NGM2, if my information is correct.
Look at the motherboard, and see if you see MS-7207 in white.
This is MSI Support, and the download page for the Motherboard Manual,
On this page I would like you to scroll down to where it states - Manual
Under this Manual heading is a large blue bar going across, and it has -
Special Note: in it.
Under that blue bar are some file names listed.
Go down to the second one -
I would like you to click on the blue - E7207v2.0.zip
On the next page you are to click on the country nearest the one you are in.
I clicked on U.S.
The next thing you will see is a small window, that will come up on the right.
Left-click on the empty circle to the left of - Save File.
(Unless there is a green dot in it already)
Now go below and click on OK.
There will be another small window that comes up with a download progress bar.
Watch the download progress bar, and let the file download all the way.

You may be very familiar with PDF documents. In the case that you are not, allow me to show you the easy way of getting to the page you want.
