    You need to provide the model of the PC and the Motherboard name.

    If you are looking for this information due to a need to replace the power supply, open the case and get the numbers from the power supply label. It will say ATX on it and give you the wattage necessary. Keep in mind, all power supplies are not alike and you should make sure you are replacing with a similar one.

The difference between ATX and MicroATX is the size. An ATX board will usually have 6-7 slots to add cards like video, network or sound cards. An ATX board will also usually not have a video port on the board. A MicroATX board will usually have only 3-4 slots to add cards into it, at least one of which being dedicated to AGP or PCI Express Video cards.
To answer your question: That computer uses a MicroATX board. A Micro ATX board will most likely work in any PC Case whereas an ATX board requires an ATX size case (Mid or Full size Tower).

The eMachines T3508 desktop computer uses an Intel D101GGC motherboard.

The Form Factor of the motherboard is Micro-ATX.

Motherboard Form Factor,

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

The Micro-ATX form factor is considered to be 244mm by 244mm,
or also can be stated as 9.6 inches by 9.6 inches.
(9.6 inches is approximately 9 and 5/8ths inches)

An ATX form factor motherboard is considered to be 305mm by 244mm, or also stated as 12 inches by 9.6 inches.

MAKE a drawing/s, and notes, as to where the cables from the Front Panel go to, on the motherboard.

The motherboard manual I provided in the above link, will tell you where the wires, (Cables), go ON the motherboard.

It doesn't tell you what each individual wire that comes from the Front Panel is.

If the cables are not marked that come from the Front Panel, you'll have to take the Front Panel apart, to see where the individual wires go.
(Power On switch, Power On LED, HDD LED, and so on)

Notes and drawings will make it so you don't have to, and mark the wires.

What makes you think you need a new motherboard, or are you buying a better computer case?

SMPS CONNECTION DIAGRAM


Not a problem, but it would be handier to have the manufacturer Name, and Model Number.

(Back of computer on a sticker, next to the Windows product key, or up on the side of the computer tower )


SMPS = Switched-Mode Power Supply. The style used in personal computers now,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Switched-mode_power_supply

A) Main power cable:
There are three styles;

1) The old AT style that has two separate connectors. The connectors BOTH connectors have BLACK wires towards one side.

The connectors also have ONLY one way, (Direction), they can be plugged onto the motherboard.
This is due to the Lock, and Locating Tab on the motherboard connector/s, and the main power cables connector/s.

When you can plug the connectors on the motherboard, with both connector's BLACK wires facing each other, (They will be in the middle), you have them installed correctly,

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

2) The newer ATX style. Uses one power cable, and connector.
First style to come out was the 20-pin ATX main power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

20-pin ATX main power cable's connector, has a LOCK on one side.
This Lock locks over a Locating Tab, on the female motherboard connector.

To remove this power cable you squeeze in on the Top of the Lock.
The Lock operates like a see-saw on a playground. When you squeeze the top in, you remove it's hooked end away, from the Locating Tab of the motherboard connector.

To be ensured that this cable is plugged in tightly, and correctly, the Lock's hooked end will be over the Locating Tab, on the motherboard connector.

3) The newest style is the 24-pin ATX main power cable.
As computer hardware evolved, and became better, it demanded more power.
The extra 4 pins of the 24-pin ATX main power cable provided this,

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

[ Aftermarket power supply manufacturers, provide power supply's with a 20 + 4-pin ATX main power cable, usually.
You can use it as a 20-pin ATX main power cable, or use the additional 4 pin cable, and use it as a 24-pin ATX main power cable ]

4) Motherboard didn't provide enough power for newer Processors.
The 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable was brought out.
(Has Lock with Locating Tab on the motherboard connector, also)

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

5) Motherboard didn't provide enough power for high-end graphics card.
4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable didn't help.
The 6-pin PCI Express power cable was brought out,

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

Plugs into a graphics card.

[ Note*
In all power cables, Red wires are 5 Volts. Yellow wires are 12 Volts. ALL Black wires are Ground wires ]

Next in line was two versions of the 8-pin power cable.

A) 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable.
Originally brought out for server computers, that has multiple Processors.
Plugs into the motherboard.

B) 8-pin PCI Express power cable.
Brought out for more power, than a 6-pin PCI Express power cable could put out.
Plugs into a graphics card.

(6-pin PCI Express power cable is capable of handling 75 Watts.
8-pin PCI Express power cable will handle 150 Watts )

If you have an IDE (PATA) harddrive, a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable is what you need. ('Molex' is the slang term for it's connector)

If you have a SATA harddrive you need a 15-pin SATA power cable.

NOTE*
IF, your SATA harddrive has a provision for a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, AND a SATA power cable;

ONLY USE the SATA power cable!

If you use both you will burn out the harddrive. Maybe not immediately, but I assure you down the road you will.
(Do not use just a single 4-pin standard peripheral power cable, either)

Optical drive/s use a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, if they are IDE (PATA) units.
If they are SATA units they use a SATA power cable.

The old Floppy Drives use a 4-pin small Peripheral power cable.
Same cable plugs into a Card Reader, also.

The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the cables, (Wires), from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

Sometimes abbreviated on the motherboard as;
F_PANEL 1, or FP1, etc.

I will need to know the computer manufacturer name, and Model Number, (HP = Product Number, or P/N), or the manufacturer name, and Model Number of the motherboard, to TRY to provide this information.

Post back in a Comment.

What is the power supply name and model number of the cooler master(cac-t05-uw)


Go to any computor store and ask for an ATX power supply. You usually want the highest wattage you can afford. You will need to know only if you have the old style hard drive or CD drive power connectors. Are they a four wire with a white block connector, or a 1/2 inch wide red or orange with a slim L connector.
Will cost you about $50 - 60

Need to know what parts compatable to ATX-1523D for an emachines T-1090


It's a Small Form Factor power supply.
4.9 inches Wide, 2.5 inches Tall, and 3.9 inches Long.

Put's out a maximum of 150 watts, (Supposedly)
Has the following power cables;

A) (1) 20-pin ATX main power cable:
http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

The main power cable. Main power cable designs have moved up to the 24-pin design, with some main power cable connectors having a 20-pin connector, and a separate 4-pin connector

B) (1) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable:
http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

This power cable is power for Intel Pentium 4 processors,and on up.
I have a eMachines T-1090 in my shop. (Still works great) It has a Pentium III 933MHz processor. Didn't know Pentium 4's were offered.

C) (4) 4-pin Peripheral power cables.

(The connector on the end of the power cable, is referred to as a standard 4-pin Molex connector. This is a misnomer. Molex was/is, a company that made this style of connector first. The name Molex was on the connector. The name stuck with people. It's just like referring to an open end adjustable wrench, as a Crescent Wrench)

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

D) (1) Floppy Drive power cable

Except for the size, and shape of this power supply, just about any low-end ATX power supply with a 4-pin +12 Volt power cable, would work.

More in additional comment.

I need a new motherboard for my computer. currently it has a ASUS PTGD-LA motherboard. does it matter what kind i replace it with?? I have an hp pavilion a1020n desktop


Information about the stock motherboard is here if you want to compare it to possible replacements. It doesn't matter what board you get as long as it fits (micro-ATX style) and can support the drives you have (enough IDE and SATA connectors). Also, if you want to keep your current memory and processor, you'll need to find a replacement that supports them. Finally you need to make sure that you stay within the ratings of the system power supply, unless you plan to upgrade it.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!
