Question about E-Machines T2893 PC Desktop

2 Answers

I accidently removed 3 sets of jumpers (power, LEDS for hard drive) when removing the front panel of my E-machine T2893, and cannot remember which jumper goes to which set of double prongs on the mother board, as there are actually (4) sets of double prongs in that same location. Is there a pictorial reference available? Thanks

Hi,
On the motherboard the pinouts on the front panel should be colour coded, and marked with letters like in this picture >>>>>
I accidently removed 3 sets of jumpers (power, - ce10baf.jpg

The connectors are also marked corresponding to where the connect on the motherboard, like in this picture >>>>>>

If the board is not colour coded then the motherboard will marked with the same letters, you may need a strong light to see the marks.

Regards.

How to slave the hard drive


You must go to BIOS setup and follow the steps.God bless youHowever follow this steps:

Instructions
1
Remove the screws on your computer case and slide the cover off of the machine. Notice the hard drive bays in the front of the machine. The existing hard drive is installed in one of these bays.


2
Use the tweezers to set the jumper pins to "Slave" mode. The jumper pins are white connectors located on the back of the hard drive. Above the jumper pin section on the hard drive is the schema to set the drive to "Slave."




3
Insert the hard drive into the computer case bay underneath the existing drive. Screw in the drive and mount it to the case using the screws included with the hard drive packaging.


4
Connect the hard drive cable from the main hard drive to the secondary slave drive. There are two connectors on the hard drive cable. The very end of it is inserted into the main hard drive. The middle connection is used for the slave drive. Insert this secondary, middle connector into your newly installed drive.


5
Insert one of the power supply cables into the back of the hard drive. This supplies electrical power to the device.


6
Replace the case cover back onto the machine. Ensure you replace the screws to properly fasten it to the computer case.

Wd1600aajs slave settings


Hard Drive a Slave Drive Setting a hard drive to function as the secondary ("slave") drive allows you to use the drive solely as a storage unit. You can use the drive to back up valuable data on the primary drive without having to install or use an operating system on it. And all you need to get going is a screwdriver to pop the case open.

Power down your computer. WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Disconnect all of the cables and then put the computer on a stable work surface such as a desk or a chair. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws securing the side paneling of the case. The screws are located at the back of the computer and along the edges--only remove the screws securing the case. Unhinge any case latches on the computer. Slide the side paneling of the case off the computer. Some case designs require you to remove the whole case, and some are broken down into removable panels. Remove enough of the case to have both sides of the computer exposed. Discharge any static that may have accumulated on your clothing before handling any internal components. Rub your hands against a solid metal portion of the case to discharge the static. Locate the hard drive. It should be secured in a station of bays adjacent to the motherboard--it'll also be near your DVD/CD-ROM and floppy disk drives. Remove the screws that secure the hard drive to the bay. Slowly slide the drive out of the bay. The drive will be connected to a data and power cable. You can temporarily disconnect them to take the drive out completely and give yourself more room to work with--but remember to reconnect them. Locate the jumper pins on the hard drive. There will be a diagram displaying the proper jumper settings for a given hard drive mode. Follow the diagram and set the pin cap in its slave position on the hard drive--for example, some drives may require the cap to be placed on the last two pins to set the drive as a slave.
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to IDE-1 means Pri slave escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart you will have to have master with slave set up you can find the jumper location next to the power on a hard drive and the settings for plastic jumper location is usually printed on the top of a hard drive IDE-0 means Pri master
IDE-1 means Pri slave
IDE-2 means Sec master
IDE-3 means Sec slave single or master ::::: master with slave ::':: slave :::': black line between dots is plastic jumper note the plastic jumper is ' located at the rear of the hard drive between the EIDE and electrical lead/s clip_image001.jpg Set Up a Slave Drive b> In a computer system, a master/slave relationship establishes the primary and secondary hard disk or optical drive status. Many computer owners install operating systems on the primary or master hard disk and use the secondary or slave disk as a storage drive for games or multimedia. Master/slave or primary/secondary relationships exist only with IDE or ATA drives. SATA, a newer drive technology, is a jumperless system and does not allow for master/slave settings, which makes SATA drives easier to install.

Shut down your computer. Unplug all cables and peripheral devices. Remove the left side panel while facing the front of the case. Remove screws, manipulate latches or perform other necessary steps to remove the panel. (Please see your computer or case manufacturer's documentation if you are unsure of how to remove the side panel, as this process varies.) Turn the case so that you are facing the open, previously left side of the case. Locate your drive bays. The 5.25-inch optical bays are at the top right and the 3.5-inch hard disk bays are towards the bottom right. You should be able to locate the necessary bay easily by matching your slave drive with the master drive. Clip the anti-static wrist bracelet to a metal object, and attach the bracelet to your wrist. Remove the drive from its anti-static packaging. Locate the pins on the back of the hard disk or optical drive. Jumper configurations vary according to model and manufacturer, and most manufacturers show the configurations on the drive itself. Configure the jumper according to the hard disk manufacturer's instructions. Insert the hard disk or optical drive into the appropriate bay. Secure it by screwing in at least two mounting screws. Attach an available controller cable to your drive. Most controller cables feature a Y-split cable, which makes it easy to find and attach the secondary cable that links to your primary drive. Insert the power supply cable into the port on the drive. Again, you may be able to plug in a secondary cable split from the power supply's cable to the master drive. Double-check all connections. Remove the anti-static wrist bracelet, then reattach all cables and peripheral devices. b> Configure the BIOS b> Start the computer. Enter your BIOS by immediately pressing the BIOS setup key, as shown onscreen. (Most computers feature a "Press X to enter BIOS setup" message after you hear the computer beep. Press this key. If you do not see this message, please consult your computer's documentation, as the BIOS key varies according to your motherboard.) Navigate to system setup and allow the BIOS to auto-detect the new drive. Save and exit the BIOS. Reattach the side panel if the drive is working correctly. Hope this helps.

Drive not detected


Hello,

1. On the motherboard there is a small watch battery. Remove this battery along with the power cable from the power supply. Hold down the power button to fully discharge the system. Wait 2-3 minutes then reinstall the battery and plug in your system. Your reset is now complete

Just set the bios" safe as default mode" . I will tell you, simple way to, set BIOS .Just press F2/F10/dell and you can enter in the BIOS.



2. Some motherboards have a 3 pin jumper by the battery. Let's say that the jumper connect with pins 2 and 3. follow picture with this link
http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000235.htm

Remove the jumper while the machine is OFF and place onto pins 1 and 2. Now hold on power button on your machine for a minute. (Note: Your system will not POST). Shutdown your machine and put the jumper back to pins 2 and 3. Now your system will POST.
Your reset is now complete.

Now you switch off the pc and fit the sata /pata cable tightly. If the problem same please fit the cable as NEW if you have a spare cable. If the problem is creating same,please install a new HDD..
Hope it solve 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.

How do hook up front panel power switch to motherboard


The simple way is to remove the front panel of the computer trace the wires to the front panel leds, make note of color pair to each led. The using the manual that came with the motherboard locate the schematic for the JFP1 connector on the motherboard, it show's where the leds wires connect to operate. If you have no manual, if you look very closely at the connector you will see where the led wires connect, you may have to use a magnifiying glass and flash light. You cannot damage anything if you accidently place the led wires in the wrong place. If the panel led wires are in a single connector and won't work on the motherboard, you can remove the wires from the connector by using a very small sharp pointed pick to push down the retaining tab on each wire, thus enabling it to be removed from the connector, just be patient.
