Diagram of t2878


Diagram? I don't quite follow. However let me post this information to see if it qualifies as what you seek.

1) The eMachines T2878 Desktop PC uses an FIC AU31 motherboard. Also known as K7M-NF18G.
(FIC is First International Computer {Inc)

This is a link to a free motherboard manual, for the FIC AU31 motherboard,

http://www.elhvb.com/mboards/OEM/eMachines/manuals/index.html

5th file down on the left side. Click right on AU31

This is a Zip file. (A Zip file is used to send large amounts of information)
Click on the circle to the left of Save File, if there is no green dot in it.
Now click on OK.

A small window will come up on the left.
In the wording at the top of this small window, will tell you where the file will download to.

It may have Desktop, or MY Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.
You may wish to write it down.

Desktop:
The zip file will be on your desktop screen

My Documents:
Click on Start, then on My Documents

Downloads:
Click on Start, then on My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

When you see the file name DOUBLE-click on it.
(Yellow folder icon with a zipper on it, and AU31_manual next to it)

On the far left at the top, click on Extract all files.

Now click on Next, Next, and Finish.

After you click on Finish you will see the file name next to a red Adobe PDF icon. DOUBLE-click on it.
There is the motherboard manual in PDF file form.

2) Motherboard Diagram; (Pertaining to the technology used for your eMachines T2878 computer),

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

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.
Supports the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

Note*
AGP and PCI Express are High-speed graphics.

A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot, or using Integrated Graphics, is NOT high-speed graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.
The PCI bus, IDE bus, SATA bus, USB, Ethernet, and Audio. (Sound)

3) The FIC AU31 motherboard uses an Nvidia nForce 2 motherboard chipset,

http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=AU31-WB&cat=MBB

Nvidia nForce 2 IGP for the Northbridge chip, and Nvidia nForce 2 MCP-T for the Southbridge chip.

Click on the motherboard photo to enlarge.
The white square socket at the top is the Processor socket.
(Socket A. Also known as Socket 462)

Under the Processor socket is a black Heatsink. Looks similar to a meat tenderizer. Underneath this heatsink is the Northbridge chip.
(The heatsink is glued to the Northbridge chip with a type of thermal glue)

The Southbridge chipset is under the ram memory slots. The large square chipset. (To the right of the white PCI slots, and to the left of the CMOS battery)

Specifications of the Nvidia nForce 2 chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_chipsets#nForce2

4) Basic layout of the FIC AU31 motherboard;

A) The three long white expansion slots at the bottom, are PCI slots

B) The shorter brown expansion slot above them, is a graphics expansion slot.
It is AGP, and 8X. (AGP 8X)
Uses AGP 8X graphics cards.

C) The two long Black slots to the upper right are Ram Memory slots.
Slot 1 (DIMM 1) is the slot closest to the Processor.

If you just use one ram memory module ('Stick'), it MUST be installed in Slot 1.
(Supports DDR Sdram ram memory at either 200MegaHertz, or 266MHz, or 333MHz, or 400MHz. This is PC1600, PC2100, PC2700, and PC3200, respectively)

D) The white connector socket to the immediate right of the ram memory slots, and has two rows of 10 socket holes, is a 20-pin ATX main power cable connector.

E) To the right of the 20-pin ATX main power cable connector, is the blue 40-pin IDE connector for the Harddrive.
(39-pin actually. One pins is omitted. Uses a flat ribbon cable)

F) Above the harddrive connector is a 34-pin Floppy Drive connector. It is black in color.

G) To the left of the Floppy Drive connector is the optical drive connector.
(Also 40-pin)

H) Uses a Realtek ALC650E audio chipset

I) Uses a Realtek RTL8201BL Ethernet chipset

Need the pin Config for the Motherboard pwr switch and hdd switch for a Emachine T2672 and pwd led thanks


Pin Configuration = Pinout

The Front plastic panel of the computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard that the cables (Wires) go to, is the Front Panel header.
Front Panel header pinout.

The motherboard used in an eMachines T2672 desktop computer is an FIC AU31 motherboard.
Made by First International Computers (Inc.) for eMachines.

http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socketa/au31.shtml

Orient the motherboard like it is in the photo, so we are both looking at it in the same direction.
{Processor to the top, Ram memory slots to the right, white PCI slots to the bottom. The way it sits in the computer case}

The Front Panel header, is a small black rectangular block that sits horizontally, at the far right bottom corner.

It has two rows of pins.
4 across the top, and 5 across the bottom.

(The small rectangular block above it, is for connecting a Power On LED light that has 3 wires. More on this in a moment)

The pins are numbered.
The pins are numbered Evenly across the top, and Odd across the bottom.

Starting from the Left side going across to the Right, on the Top row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.
There is No Pin 10.

Starting from the Left side going across to the Right, on the Bottom row;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

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

C) Pin 9 is Not Used. (NC. No Connection)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light, IF it is a 2 wire LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
(If the LED light is dim, switch the wires around)

If the Power On LED light has 3 wires:
Use the Power On header above the Front Panel header.
This rectangular block has 3 pins.

Starting from the Left side going to the Right; Pins 1 , 2, and 3.
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire.
Pins 2 and 3 are Ground wires.

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

This is a link to a free motherboard manual, for the FIC AU31 motherboard. It is in Zipped file form.
(A Zipped file is a compressed file. It is used for one, to send a large file over the internet)

[ P.S.
The motherboard chipset is an Nvidia Crush 18G + MCP AGP
It is an Nvidia Force 2 chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_chipsets#nForce2

Supports Processors that are AMD, and fit in a Socket A processor socket.
(Socket A is also known as Socket 462)

Supports AMD processors that have either a 200MegaHertz Front Side Bus, or a 266MHz FSB, or a 333MHz FSB.

AMD Athlon XP processors with either a 266MHz FSB, or 333MHz FSB.
From the 1500+ model up to the 2800+ model.

AMD Duron processors with a 200MHz FSB.
From the 800MHz to the 1.3GHz models

(AMD Athlon XP is the top of the line. Then it's Duron, then Sempron.
A Sempron processor has half of the L2 cache that a comparable Athlon XP does)

Ram Memory is DDR Sdram at either 200MHz, or 266MHz, or 333MHz, or 400MHz.
Depends on the Processor used.

(Ram Memory typically operates at half of the frequency rate ('Speed') that the Processor does.
If the processor's FSB is 333MHz, you can use 400MHz DDR Sdram. {PC3200}

Confusing I know.
DDR Sdram is 'double-pumped'. It is actually 200MHz for PC3200.
This is close to half of 333MHz.

Processor has an FSB of 266MHz? Ram memory used will be 266MHz. Remember, it is actually 133MHz for the ram memory. (PC2100)

Need an AMD Athlon processor?
I found this place years ago. Not advertising for them. Just computer geeks sticking together, and sharing information. (I have bought a motherboard from them, and it works fine),

NEED TO KNOW WIRING


i have been to fic's web site, i cannot find any mb labeled au31.

do you have anymore information about the board, how old, which processor, what socket, which north bridge, south bridge, which model system, etc?

 

however the pins are usually marked "pwr sw" or "pwr" and are usually with all the other front panel connector pins.
