You might want to get the Belarc Advisor program. It's free and will identify your motherboard and components in the system. You can then look for a manual for that mother board or one with a similar chipset. Belarc Advisor Free Personal PC Audit Version 8 4

Can not find bios up date for Acer sa80-g97z celeron 2.8 ghz mobo E661gxm-7


In the address bar, after launch, type information. Then select system information. Write down the bios info. Use it for a search. There is nothing about the bios on the support page for the Aspire SA80; they simply list drivers for the machine. No bios identifying information is provided for me to pursue a search. But, scurrying around, I hink the bios for the motherboard is at this address and that may be as updated as it gets. http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=523&MenuID=1&LanID=0 You will find links to the mother board manual and bios there.

I think that is a Celeron D 336 with the motherboard manufactured by Company Elitegroup Computer Systems,ECS 661GX-M7 . The device drivers are available at http://acer.driversdown.com/acer-drivers/s_195_1.shtml

Three short beeps one short beep


Did you add a card in the computer recently ?

check the manual here page 30 for the list of beeps
http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/desktop_pub/lenovo_h4_hmm.pdf

it mentions :
"4 beeps : Motherboard timer not operational" (whatever that means, it sounds like something prevents the motherboard to work correctly), and recommends to remove any card added in the computer one at a time to identify the culprit.

Hooking power supply back to desktop gateway computer 310 series after changing motherboard need diagram where can i get one


Let me look around for you.

The plastic front of the computer is the Front Panel. The area of pins on the motherboard that the wires from the Front Panel attach to, is the Front Panel header.
Sometimes there are two Front Panel headers.

This information may be tough to find.
What is needed is the manufacturer name and model number, off of the motherboard.

There were several different motherboard manufacturers used, and several different variations.

I'm going to post two links that may help you with identifying the motherboard manufacturer, and model number.

Look in the middle of the motherboard, around the edges, and in-between any expansion slots on the motherboard, for identifying nomenclature.

http://www.ascendtech.us/itemdesc.asp?ic=MB4GWTHRASHER&eq=&Tp=

http://www.pcpartsohio.com/gateway.aspx?c=2&s=91

Going further, there is a motherboard chipset on the motherboard.
The motherboard chipset consists of the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.

The Northbridge chip will be covered with an aluminum finned Heatsink. It's identifying model number/letters will be covered.

The Southbridge chip usually does not have a Heatsink. It's model number/letters will be easily identifiable.

The Northbridge chip and Southbridge chip are installed in a mated pair.
A specific Southbridge chip will be used with a specific Northbridge chip.

This means that identifying what Southbridge chip is used will lead us to what Northbridge chip is used, without removing the Heatsink off of the Northbridge chip.

This shows you a motherboard diagram, detailing how the motherboard chipset is connected to the rest of the motherboard,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

This general example of an average motherboard shows you the Northbridge chip, and Southbridge chip,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:MicroATX_Motherboard_with_AMD_Athlon_Processor_2_Digon3.jpg

Looking in the middle of the motherboard you will note a bl;ack square Heatsink that looks like a meat tenderizer.
This is the Heatsink over the Northbridge chip.

To the left of the Northbridge chip, and to the left of the ram memory slots, is the Southbridge chip.
It has VIA on it in white letters.

State any identifying letter/numbers that you see on the motherboard.
Please state in a Comment.

Mismatch connection,plug vs pin after swithing motherboard


Hi there.
On the motherboard look for the front panel, it should be marked PWR and coloured green, also the plug that connects to it should be marked PWR_SW.
Have a look at these pictures for an idea >>>>>>

Mother board model number


It is usually printed on the motherboard above a first pci slot, though it could be anywhere on the motherboard , sometimes even just a sticker with a code. You have to look those up on the manufacturers site.
If you can find the manufacturers name , i believe foxconn makes the motherboards for that computer, you can look at the pictures of your board to identify it. heres foxconns site.. http://www.foxconnchannel.com/product/Motherboards/chipset.aspx?socket_id=en-us0000007&chipset_id=en-us0000090&Socket=Socket+AM2&Chipset=MCP61S
Post again here if you need more help .. Regards.

Trying to Install New Motherboard in Acer computer


The new motherboard should have came with a manual, that manual should identify all connection points on the motherboard. If you did not receive a manual, I would say that you did not get a new motherboard. If you got an exact replacement for your motherboard, you should be able to find the correct supporting documents on the Acer website. If it is a different motherboard than you had originally, then you might find supporting documents on the motherboard manufacturer's website. You will need to identify the motherboard by manufacturer and model #.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!
