Question about E-Machines eMachines Refurbished EMA SYSTEM BOARD MODEL T2984 eMachines (102257) PC Desktop
I have been tried to power up this emachine T2984 but no such luck. I accidently pulled the power switch and LCD switch for the hard drive and I dont know how to replace the wires on the motherboard. Can't find a system board diagram online. Does any one know how the connectors fit on the motherboard?
I made this diagram, hope it helps!

Try looking at another motherboard most are the same or very close, the led cable probably goes toward the back, the power switch normally goes near the beginning with the missing pin just in front of it if i remember correctly, I work with a lot of strange hardware so i could have it wrong right now. if i refer to the manual from the motherboard in my new pc.... it's and MSI K9N6GM there are two areas near the front (by the front of the case) where these cables plug in, they are labeled jfp1 and jfp2, you will probably want to look for something similar, there are usually just a group of pins arranged in a rectangle with one missing at one end, some pc's will have a special connector, this is really popular with dell, but it makes it harder to upgrade your hardware.if your look around and think you find the right pins, look for the missing pin and the power switch goes on the two pins after that, since this is an off the shelf pc it might not have the pins labeled if it does its very small print. when you look at it it will resemble an equal sign = the power switch goes on the side with the missing pin only normally, the reset switch if there is one goes on the next row over in the same spot, leaving one pin exposed on that side, the power led goes behind the power switch and the hdd activity light goes behind the optional reset switch. that should be close to what you have, also to test if it will come on at all before going through all that trouble try running a small screwdriver across the pins rather quickly but gently, it should power up, it make take a few tries but one you are used to it you'll get it to work almost every time, hope this is in someway helpful, good luck.
