Try looking for the model number on the motherboard itself, and search for the manual on www.google.com or www.driverguide.com. I found mine on driverguide.

Where can I get instructions to put unidentified tower together?


You have all the pieces .. motherboard .. cpu .. ram .... heatsink/cpu fan?

Place the cpu into the motherboard socket. Note that it only fits one way. Check the pins on the cpu against the holes in the socket. Hold it in place with the securing catch/lever that you will see on the side.


Smear some heatsink/cpu paste onto the top of the cpu. The heatsink paste is basically a 'heat resistant glue'

Put the cpu cooling fan onto the cpu and screw it into position. Or, it may have a securing lever to hold it in place.

Put the RAM into the ram slots. They only fit one way. Make sure they are firmly in place.

Put the motherboard into the casing. Align what holes you can and use the screws that come with the casing to secure the motherboard.

Connect the casing power supply to the motherboard. Note that it only fits one way.

Connect the cpu cooling fan to the motherboard connector. It only fits one way ..

Next, look at the leads that are just lying loose .. the small female 2 pin connectors will be marked 'PWR' ..'LED'..'RESTART' ... There maybe 8 of them.

On the motherboard identify the block of male 2 pin connectors. The female connectors must connect to them. You'll need good eyes and probably a flashlight, as the writing on the motherboard is small..

If you are connecting a sata hard drive, connect to the motherboard connection that says 0. Connect your dvd drive to '1' Again, notice that sata leads can only fit one way.

Then connect any video or sound cards to the motherboard (if any).
Just look on the motherboard for anywhere the connecting wires will attach. You won't go far wrong.

The casing won't come with instructions of 'what to do' as such. If there were instructions there it would relate to pin/hard drive connections.

What you CAN do is a google search. If, for example, your motherboard is an ASUS 123456 .. search for 'ASUS 123456 motherboard connections'. Or log onto the motherboard manufacturer's website ..

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


Check your RAM.
The RAM is located in the middle of the motherboard.

There are tabs that you can push to release the RAM.
Remove it and put it back in place until the tabs pop out.

Loose RAM can cause your computer not to start properly where you want to see a video signal.
Remove the memory modules from their slots.
Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors.


Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth.
Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components.


Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots, lightly rub an alcohol (Methylated Spirits) on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r


Allow the pins to dry.
They will air dry in a matter of minutes.

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE SATA
the leads from yourMOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVEmake sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


make sure all leads that are attached to your dvd\cd floppy drives have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


computers need power and data to travel through every working device to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


even something as small as a faulty electrical or fan lead can cause you problems


motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail


check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working


Check you CPU central processing unit make sure its securely seated and has thermal paste it might be getting to hot the thermal paste will help disperse the heat

Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU.


Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink.

Typically a computer case has small brass screws holding the components in. Every case is different, but just start taking out any screws you see and dismantle it piece by piece, whatever becomes available to remove. Be careful of the ribbon cables, they are damaged easily.

How to install riser card compaq evo



Finding a compatible graphics cards may be a daunting task if you know little about your computer's components and technical specifications. To find a video card that is compatible with your system, you'll need to uncover information about your motherboard and power supply by opening your case and peeking inside. From there, you can perform additional research and make an informed determination of the types of graphics cards compatible with your computer. If your warranty is still in place, consult your computer manufacturer or builder to obtain the information you need

Physically open your case and examine the number and types of slots on your motherboard. Unplug any cables connected to your computer prior to removing the side panel, but make a note of where your monitor connects. Remove your case's left side panel (when facing the front of the case). You may need to remove screws or to adjust latches. Please see your case or computer manual if you are unsure how to remove the side panel. Locate the current graphics card. By matching the port your monitor plugs into with the graphics card, you should be able to easily locate your video card. If you have an on-board graphics chip, the monitor will not connect with a card but with ports directly on the motherboard. Measure your case interior and the card slot. Make a note of how long the current card is. You must also measure for prospective maximum expansion card length. For example, if you measure 7.5 inches from the slot cover to the nearest obstruction (obstructions may include other slots, chips, or the processor), you will not be able to buy a card that measures 8.5 inches in length. The card you install must not affect any other components on the motherboard. Write down any brand name or model number so that you can verify the measurements by researching the card's specifications. Locate a serial number, brand name or product number for your motherboard and write it down so that you can research the motherboard and its specifications. Locate your power supply. Generally, the power supply will be in the upper-left corner of the case. Power cables connected to your drives, your motherboard and possibly your video card will run to the power cable. Make a note of the wattage, the brand name, and any model number. Perform research to verify the power supply's specs. Replace the side panel, and plug in all cables. Find a graphics card that will work with your motherboard and power supply and fit the motherboard's measurements. The card should both fit into the slot physically and be designed for the type of slot on your computer. Ensure that the card has drivers for your operating system. Hope this helps.

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem

a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly


motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working


make sure the CPU central processing unit has thermal paste and dust free and is securely seated


make sure your computer ram modules are securely seated with no dust in sockets also Cmos battery has charge with no dust in the socket some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

I have an hp d530 cmt motherboard with tray & would know if it would fit in an hp xw4100 case. I have not been able to locate a d530 case.


Most mother boards are loosely speaking "one size fits all". The newer the board the smaller generally. You will have to offer it up and see. It may mean you have to move a couple of pillars.
So long as the PSU leads fit, it sholud be OK.

Hi,
the constant Green, states that the motherboard is getting Power.
The red/yellow would possibly suggest, that the ethernet port has a fault or possible corruption.
Solution:- remove the Power Lead from the Computer Case.
Remove side panel. take out any ethernet-Cable from the rear.
Locate the CMOS battery, round silver Battery on The motherboard.
For 10 seconds, this should reset The bios, to it,s original Default Settings. Replace Battery, side Panel. And power Lead.
You could also try This. Boot with Hard-drive power Cable Disconnected ( this will Eliminate HD Fault ) same for CD/DVD drive et,c.

These wires vary based on the type of the board each wire lead is labeled to coorespond with the pins on the board. You need to reference the manual for your specific motherboard. If you don't have the original get it from the vendor support site or just google it. Unless your motherboard is an odd brand it should be easy to find.

Replacing Motherboard


There are things to consider when buying a motherboard.
  1. The type of processor you are using must fit on your new motherboard (compatibility issues)
  2. Memory.
Better ask your local store for a compatible motherboard. Unless your going to buy the same board .

If your purchase a new motherboard it comes with a instruction manual complete with installation guidelines and illustration to help you out. In case you have trouble doing so you can always contact your vendor or the manufacturer for help (online, toll free numbers).

If your having doubts whether your motherboard is defective you can run tests but you will need extra parts. You could ask your friends if they have one. In my case I usually test other components ex. processor, memory with a spare working motherboard. Fit in the componenets with your spare motherboard and if it runs chances are your suspected board is defective. Or better have it checked at another service center for a 2nd opinion.
