While my computer is running the light on the frount is flashing orange. I thought it was always green before. Is there a problem


i removed the connector at "J5J3 pswrd."

i tried everything else such as new M/B battery. remove/change ram. take out extra card, etc.

I just fixed my dell dimension 3100 by doing this.

I need a wiring diagram for a GM5664


Gateway Support > Gateway GM5664 Desktop PC > Downloads and Support Documents,

http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2734

Click on the Support Documents tab
(Drivers, BIOS, Applications, Patches, Support Documents, etc)

Click on the blue - 1015004R - Support Documents

Click on Product Views in the list.
Click on Inside View

Go back to the main page
Click on Components
Go to the heading - Motherboards

4006254R - ECS MCP61PM-GM
(AM2 processor socket, MicroATX form factor motherboard)

Gateway Support is of no further help to us. Product Views for the motherboard does not work.

ECS motherboards use a 10-pin Front Panel header, if memory serves.
One pin is not used. (Not there. Number 10 pin)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/GATEWAY-GM5664-MCP61PM-GM-MOTHERBOARD-4GB-Ram-AMD-Athlon-II-Dual-Core-3-0GHz-/360423046239?pt=Motherboards&hash=item53eae33c5f

On the above link scroll the page down, until you come to the enlarged photo of the motherboard, with - Click an Image to Enlarge - under it.
Click on the photo view all the way to the right, on the top photos.

The view shows the 4 orange SATA headers on the motherboard.
(The whitish 24-pin ATX main power cable connector, is shown at the front, with the blue IDE 40-pin header behind it)

To the left of the orange SATA headers (4) is the Front Panel header.
Black rectangular connector with 2 rows of pins.
One row has 4 pins, the other row has 5 pins.

[ The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header ]

Finding where number 1 pin is, is the problem.
Next to the number 1 pin, and silk-screened on the motherboard, is the number 1.

Looking at the rectangular connector (Front Panel header) you will note one pin is missing. This is where number 10 pin would be.

On the opposite side, and opposite end, is number 1 pin.

The pins are numbered Odd, 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9, on the same side.
(Or row)
The pins are numbered Even, 2, 4, 6, and 8, on the other side.
(Or row)

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
(HDD LED light)
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.

If the Harddrive activity 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 Not Connected. N/C. Reserved for the factory

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.

If the Power On LED light is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Located inside the plastic Power On button assembly. It is an ATX power on switch)

http://www.fixya.com/support/t614458-hp_mcp61pm_hm_motherboard_diagram

As for the orange SATA headers on the motherboard. The SATA harddrive should plug into the lowest number of SATA header.
It may be labled SATA 0, or SATA 1.

The beauty of SATA however, is that you can plug the harddrive into anyone of those SATA headers. BIOS will find the device. (Harddrive)

If you need guidance in connecting any other cables, such as power cables, or optical drives, etc, post back in a Comment.

Dell mini computer power button blinks orange whats the cause?


Hello,

A blicking power light and no boot indicates one of two things. First, an error on the motherboard caused by failed capacitors or two a power supply that is not putting out all of the correct voltages. To check the motherboard look over this article:
http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/dell-optiplex-745-repair/
If you don't see any bad capacitors then the power supply will need to be changed.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

DELL GX 520 Motherboard power led is orange, power button led is orange, the fun is running, no beep, no display....somebody help me with this dell gx520. sometimes it displays 3 and 4 lights on the front...


you should replace the motherboard or the power supply of your computer. to determine which one to replace is a simple test. disconnect all that is connected to the motherboard and if the problem is still there, then the problem is the motherboard.

My Dimension 5150 box will not turn on! Just blinks, looks like an orange light. Monitor comes on then goes off to orange...


- disconnect the power cable of the box from the back of the tower and press and hold down the power button for 10 seconds (remaining power will be depleted).
- Now try using a different wall outlet.
- Check the diagnostic lights to see if the specific problem is identified (the computer has four diagnostic lights labeled "1," "2," "3," and "4" on the front panel). Also, see "Power Problems" in your computer Owner's Manual and/or Service Manual.

Front panel wiring


Hi, Maybe we can wing it if you can send an image of the motherboard closeup on the F_PANEL connections and the wires from the front panel itself, or get the specific motherboard model during POST so we can try getting URL of manual. In some instances, the front panel wires are: Green wire, power on green light +, white wire is power on green light -; Red & Black, speaker; Red & white - HDD red activity light indicator where red is HDD + & white is HDD -; Orange & white - Reset Black & White - power on Post back so we can figure things out. Good luck and kind regards.
