The eMachines W3410 uses an MSI ms-7145 motherboard.
Also known as RS480M

This is MSI Support, and the download page for the motherboard manual, for the RS480M motherboard,

http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=1&prod_no=204

To the Right of the photo of the motherboard, you will see a gray bar with, BIOS, Driver, Utility, Manual, and RSS.
Left-click on Manual.

On the next page look under the heading to the right - Document.
Left-click on the blue - E7145v2.1.zip

On the final page click on the country nearest yours.
A small window will come up with the heading -
Opening E7145v2.1.zip

Be sure that Save File has a green dot, in the empty circle to the left.
[If not, Left-click on the empty circle to the left of Save File]
Now click on OK, below.

Where this file will go.
If you Do Not, have your documents set to save to your My Documents folder (Documents for Vista), the file will go to your desktop screen.

In either place Double-click on the file. Now go up to the left, and click on - Extract All Files.
Click on Next, and Finish.

You will now see a PDF icon. Double-click on this icon.
Go to Page 15.

The plastic panel on the front of your computer is the Front Panel.
This is where the Power On switch, Power On LED, and HDD LED are located.

The connector on the motherboard where the cables (Wires) attach to, is the Front Panel header.
The front panel header is a series of pins, sticking up out of the motherboard.

The MSI ms-7145 motherboard, (RS480M) has the Front Panel header separated into two headers.

JFP1, and JFP2

Looking at the motherboard with the Processor socket to the top, and the Ram Memory slots to the right, the JFP1, and JFP2 front panel headers are located at the extreme bottom Right, of the motherboard.

[Use the Zoom In feature (+ at top of file) to enlarge the motherboard layout on Page 15]

Now go to Page 38.
Page 38 shows the connections for the JFP1, and JFP2 headers.

The JFP1 header, and the JFP2 header, consists of two rows of pins in a horizontal column.
The pins are arranged parallel, to the bottom edge of the motherboard.

Right above the JFP1, and JFP2 header may be three pins, with two of the pins have a jumper. We will not concern ourselves with this jumper header (BIOS with Protect Jumper)

The JFP1, and JFP2 headers are close together. There is no separation in-between them.

The JFP2 header is for an internal speaker.
The JFP1 header is for the Front Panel cables.

The JFP1 header pins start from the right side of the motherboard, and go towards the left.

There are 5 pins across the Bottom. (Going from right to left)
There is NO pin, then there are 4 pins across the Top.
(Again, going from Right towards the left)

The top row of pins are numbered Evenly.
The bottom row of pins are numbered Odd.

Starting on the Right side, going towards the left for the Top row of pins, the pins are numbered,
10 (NO pin for 10), 8, 6, 4, and 2.

Starting on the Right side, going towards the left for the Bottom row of pins, the pins are numbered,
9, 7, 5, 3, and 1.

1) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED.

2) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch

3) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED

4) Pins 5 and 7 are used for a Reset switch. (If applicable)

5) Pin 9 is not used.

SOURCE: I have an emachines t6520 and the power sw wire, HDD led wire, and the power led wire hve been disconected

On the system board, on the left edge next to the primary IDE connector, there is a 9 pin header.
I usually get a magnify glass and look down on the header . From right to left,you will see PWR led pins closer to the edge of the motherboard.and the Power BTN next to it.(the side of the pins that has 4 pins on it)
Then on the other side, you will see the pins for the HDLED across from the PWR led. Then the Reset pins across the PWR BTN.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

My emachines et1300-02 won't turn on how to fix it


See if the problem is the Power On switch, or Power Supply, Kimberly.

Bypass the Power On switch.
The test does Not involve the Power On switch, or it's wires.

1) First follow Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static BEFORE, reaching inside your unplugged from power computer.

Computer on a table, computer Unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

2) Open the computer case:
Viewing the computer from the Front, the Left Side Panel removes.
There is a Thumbscrew, or Philips screws along the edge of the left Side Panel.
Loosen the Thumbscrew/s all the way, or remove the Philips screws.

Use the fingerpull molded out of the back of the left Side Panel, and pull the Side Panel to the rear of the computer.
May only pull back about 1 inch, then is brought straight out to the side.

You also may wish to remove all cables, and lay the computer on it's side, opening up. Easier to work on, will not affect the computer.
(You could turn the computer upside down, and it will work just fine.
Not the optical drive though! Disk would fall out, lol!)

There is a main power cable going to the motherboard.
It is a 24-pin ATX main power cable.
This is a general example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

Here it is shown in the ET1300-02,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883114079


Look at the main view. Has four smaller views underneath it, and three dots after the four views.
Click on the 3 dots.
This takes you to a small screen that shows many views of the ET1300-02.

Left-click on the middle photo in the second row.
Shows the left Side Panel removed.

The 24-pin ATX main power cable is in the middle, and next to the red SATA cable that goes up to the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)

24-pin ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard, a jumper wire is used on the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

The preferred jumper wire is a straightened out paperclip, bent into a U-shape.
The top of the U, is wrapped a few times with black plastic electrical tape.
This taped area is for your fingers, and thumb to hold onto.

Turn the U-shaped jumper wire upside down. The 'legs' are what is used.

Looking back at the Playtool link above, look at the view to the far right.
See the Green wire?
The green wire is the Soft Power On wire. If it is jumped with a wire that is a Ground wire, the Power Supply is supposed to turn on.

Note where the wires go into the connector, of the 24-pin ATX main power cable. This is the Back of the connector. This is also where the 'legs' of the jumper wire goes.

The 'legs' of the jumper wire goes down into the squarish socket holes, RIGHT NEXT TO the existing wire that is in the socket hole.

One leg goes down into the socket hole with the Green wire.
Slides past the insulation of the wire, and touches a metal terminal down at the bottom of the wire.

All wires going into that 24-pin ATX main power cable connector, end in a metal terminal.
The metal terminal looks like this, (Only smaller),

http://www.molex.com/molex/products/datasheet.jsp?part=active/0002081202_CRIMP_TERMINALS.xml&channel=Products&Lang=en-US

Looking at the photo in the middle on the Playtool link, you can see the rounded tips of those metal terminals. (They go over contact pins on the motherboard's connector)

The jumper wire MUST touch that metal terminal.

The other 'leg' of the jumper wire goes down into ANY socket hole, that has a Black wire in it.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

Voltage used? 5 Volts DC.
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries store 3 Volts DC.
Not saying there may be a spark. For this reason you may feel safer wearing a glove on the 'jumper wire hand'.

The contact period is no more than 2 seconds. The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.

IF, the Power Supply comes on you have a bad Power On switch.

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

IF, the Power Supply does Not come on you have a bad Power Supply.
Replace.

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wires go to from the Front panel, is the Front panel header.

Motherboard installed in computer, the Front panel header is at the Bottom/Right.
Two rows of 7 pins in a small black rectangular plastic block.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Acer-DA061-078L-Motherboard-eMachines-EL1200-X1200-AMD-780G-Socket-AM2-DDR2-/140825131784?pt=Motherboards&hash=item20c9d4fb08

TOP row of pins is numbered EVEN.
BOTTOM row of pins is numbered ODD.

Starting on the LEFT side going towards the Right, TOP row:
Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, (NO 10), 12, and 14. Again, there is NO Pin 10.

Starting on the LEFT side going towards the Right, BOTTOM row;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, and 13.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light)
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

2) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

3) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED (Light)
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

4) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

5) The rest of the pins are N/C. Not Connected.

Don't forget to plug the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable in,

I need to know where to connect the three seperate 2 pin connectors from the ''power switch'' to the motherboard on my eMachines C2685 desktop computer.


The eMachines C2685 uses an FIC VC37GV motherboard. (First International Computer, Inc.)

http://www.motherboards.org/mobot/motherboards_d/FIC/VC37GV/

Here is the motherboard manual,

http://www.ime.org.uk/pdfs/vc37_vg31_b1_eng.pdf

After you click on the above link, give it up to 30 seconds to download. This is a PDF file.

Barring you cannot download the file, I will state the connections for the Front Panel header on the motherboard.
(Plus state the page to reference to, in case you can download)

View the first link, with the photo of the FIC VC37GV motherboard.

As shown, Processor is at the top, Ram Memory slots are to the right.

The Front Panel header is located at the very bottom right corner.

It is parallel to the outside edge of the motherboard. There are two rows of pins.
(Page 12)

The Front Panel header has 5 pins going across the top, and 4 pins across the bottom.

The top row of pins are numbered Odd.
The bottom row of pins are numbered Evenly.

On the Top row starting on the Right side, going towards the left, the pins are numbered 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

On the Bottom row starting on the Right side, going towards the left, the pins are numbered 2, 4, 6, and 8.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HDD LED. (HarDDrive activity LED)

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch

C) Pins 2 and 4 are for a Dual Color Power On LED, if used.
Green goes to Pin 2. Yellow goes to Pin 4.

Otherwise Pin 2 is Positive, ( + ), and Pin 4 is Negative. ( - )

D) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.
(PWR1, or SW1)

There is a small 3 pin header, just above the Front Panel header. (Page 12)

This is for a Power LED that has either two wires, or three wires.
The pins are numbered from Right to left.

Pin 1 is for the Power LED, and Pin 2 is for Ground, if using a two wire Power LED. (Not dual color)

Pin 1 is for the Power LED, and Pins 2 and 3 are for Ground (GND), if using a three wire Power LED.
(Page 13)

How do Iplug the power switch wires in the corect place on the mother board? for the emachine T2824


Hi.

Did you try to open your CPU casing to find the socket in your motherboard witch is totally fix with the power switch wire. The power switch wire are two forms, there is a 20 pins and 24 pins. If your power switch socket is only a 20 pins, you need to put only the 20 pins.

The 24 pins is not totally combined in power switch wire. If your motherboard power socket contains only 20 pins, so remove the 4 pins in your power switch wires. "Good luck!!"

Hope it may helpful for you!

Tried new power supply but didn't help. (Who knows - maybe I didn't install correctly.) I first thought it was the power switch on front of machine. Was wondering if some easy test for power switch?


Tips from me:

1.If your power supply isn't coming on, I advise you to check the 20/24-pin motherboard power cable,
connector, and be sure it's down in tight. Make sure that lock tab of the power cable connector, snaps over the motherboard connector lug. Make sure that connector is in all the way.

2.Be sure the wires that come from the Power On switch, and go to the motherboard, are connected, and down all the way. The connector, or individual connectors, need to be down on those motherboard pins all the way. (The area on the motherboard where they connect, is called the Front Panel header. A connector on a motherboard is called a Header)
Also make sure both wires from the Power On switch, (Button), are connected to the motherboard, if the wires have individual connectors.

Now, how to test to see if the Power On switch is bad.

The 20/24-pin ATX motherboard power cable connector comes in three styles.
A.20-pin connector. Has two rows of 10 socket holes
B.24-pin connector. Has two rows of 12 socket holes
C.20-pin and a 4-pin connector.

NO matter what style it is, it has a Green wire going to that connector. The Green wire is the
Soft Power On wire.

With the motherboard power connector plugged into the motherboard, and the computer plugged into the surge protector, you need to jump that Soft Power On wire, to a Ground wire.
View these photos of a 20-pin ATX Main power cable. (Motherboard power cable, Main power cable.
Same/same)
http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

Look at the photo all the way to the right. (You can save this page, and bring it up in a new window)
This shows that Green wire. Fourth one from the left.
Next to it is a Black wire. Fifth one from the left.

ANY Black wire is a Ground wire.

You need to make a jumper wire. This wire should have insulation on it. It should be as thick as those power cable wires. It should be about 3 inches long. You need to strip off 3/4ths of a inch of insulation, off of EACH end. Twist the exposed wires. Make a tight wrap. Bend this wire into a U-shape.

At this point you may want to don a protective rubber glove. Tightly fitting dishwashing glove, or perhaps a surgical style one. Reasoning is, that there will be a spark. You may feel more safe this way. I don't use one, but I'm an old tech, and maybe not too Tightly Wrapped! lol! (I also was a journeyman lineman, so this spark doesn't bother me!)

With the ATX motherboard power cable plugged into the motherboard, you are looking at the back of the connector. The wires go down into a socket. At the end of every wire is a metal terminal end.
It's pretty far down in there. One end of your jumper wire, goes down deep into the Green wire socket. It needs to touch that metal terminal end.

The other end of your jumper wire, needs to touch a Ground wire terminal end. ANY Black wire is a Ground wire. Just stick the end down into a socket with a Ground wire. Hold it there for about 1 to 2 seconds, bring the wire back out. You just want to make a Momentary Contact.
Your power supply should start.

If so, you have a bad Power On switch. If not, your problem is the power supply, or the motherboard.

Motherboard Wiring


With already built machines, your hard pressed to find that info, but with most mainboards, you should only have to worry about hooking up the pins for the power button,reset switch and the usb ports. USB are usually one + and one - and are side by side or one above the other on the board in a group with the rest of the ones i mentioned above. Sometimes they have it labeled on the board as rstsw for reset switch, pwr for power button, HDD for hard drive light.

If you need a wireing diagram for more than that then most likely you wont find one.
