Question about Fujitsu LifeBook N3410 Notebook

Open Question

Need motherboard schematic or way to ID connector with no cable

A friend said I could borrow his notebook, the only problem was, it was totally disassembled. It is a Fujitsu Lifebook N3410. I got it put back together, but it won't power up (he said it worked fine prior to taking it apart) and there is one connector on the upper left edge that looks like a ribbon cable should plug into it, but there are no additional cables remaining to plug in. Also the compartment next to the empty connector (top, left edge of motherboard is empty and I'm not sure what goes there. It's not the hard drive, memory, DVD drive, wireless internet card, add-in slots (pcmcia), floppy drive, or card reader. Would a motherboard schematic be available anywhere, to help ID the empty connector? Does anyone have any ideas on another way to figure this out or to t-shoot the no power up problem (if it's not the missing cable)?

  • Boot to the xp cd
  • After the setup installs then it will ask if you want to install xp, repair or install to another partition.
  • Choose install and the install program will say that it is inspecting and looking for previous Windows.
  • The dialogue will now say that a previous Windows is installed and to choose whether you wish to install on the same partition -you do not, delete that partition -you do. I think it is "D" to delete, then "L" on the next Window.
  • When you see the next screen it will list the partitions. Notice the "unpartitioned" disk space -that is where you want to install the new Windows.
  • It should be all or most of your hard drive space. If there are other partitions delete those as well unless there is a relatively small partition, say 4 or 8 gigabytes partition that may have information stored for the hard drive itself to use for it's own purposes.
  • When you have the unpartitioned space maximized by deleting the existing Windows you be asked if you want to format the drive in NTFS, Fat32 or leave intact or quick format.
  • Choose NTFS, full format (slow) and let the format begin.
  • When complete it will reboot automatically or you can reboot yourself.
  • After reboot the Windows driver load and inspection will repeat but this time you will have a formatted partition. Choose that for your new install of Windows. After that is complete reboot to your hard drive, not the cd. You can remove the cd if you want to make sure you are booting to the hard drive but the new Windows installation may ask that you reinsert the cd as it loads drivers and so on. At this point have any other cds available for installing drivers for printers, video cards, network adaptors and so on. If you do not have them then download the Windows 2000 drivers to a thumb drive or cd before you do this install.
  • Windows has program compatibility program that inspects or lists what devices might not be compatible with Windows 2000. Also the manufacturer can tell you what Windows versions they can support. Here is a comprehensive list of Microsoft downloads for Windows 2000. Make sure that you have service pack 4 downloaded to cd or thumbdrive.

This is a very old laptop, when new it was installed with Windows 98.
Not sure if it had a PCMCIA slot on the laptop, but it can be easily identified if you look on the laptop. If it has PCMCIA slots, most likely it would be located on the LHS or RHS of the laptop. The PCMCIA could be a single slot or a double slot and it would be 55mm wide ie 2 3/4 inches wide with an eject button for a single slot and two eject buttons for a double slot.

Did you allreday placed the memory modules from place and is the power two pins beneath your motherboard(handguide) still connected or have you done the east thing, pull out and push in the cables from your psu. Does it do nothing or does it quit after 2 sec.
when it does not a thing then i would replace the psu and borrow one from a friend.

Dell t3400 power for 2 hard drives


Not a problem.

This is a general view of a SATA -> data cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

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

Note the L-shaped opening in the SATA data cable's connector, and matching L-shape on the SATA data connector on the motherboard.

Note also that a SATA data cable's connector has 7-pins
Between it, and a SATA power cable connector, the SATA data cable connector is the smaller of the two.

A SATA power cable has 15-pins,

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

Note that it's cable connector opening is also L-shaped.
So is the matching connector on a SATA harddrive, or SATA optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)

A SATA power cable's connector generally has an area on it, that you depress with your thumbnail, and this releases a Lock.
Depress to install, depress to remove.

SATA data cable connector, Or SATA power cable connector; that goes to a Harddrive, or to an Optical Drive, is usually a 90 degree bent elbow.

The straight connector on the cable plugs into the motherboard.
(Can be straight connector on both ends through, but isn't CORRECT)

SATA connectors on motherboard;
IF, this Ebay link selling a Dell Precision T3400 Desktop PC motherboard, is correct, there are;

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-TP412-Precision-Workstation-T3400-Socket-775-Motherboard-/360503300257?pt=Motherboards&hash=item53efabd0a1

1) FOUR Black SATA connectors
2) ONE White SATA connector
3) One Blue SATA connector

1 Black SATA connector, and 1 Blue SATA connector, at the bottom of the black Ram Memory slots.

1 White SATA connector, and 3 Black SATA connectors, right next to the where 24-pin ATX main power cable, plugs into the motherboard.

General example of said main power cable,

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

(Note* Color of connectors does Not matter )

Originally the Master harddrive, should plug into SATA1 connector on the motherboard.

If you look real close, next to all of those SATA connectors on the motherboard, you may see SATA0, SATA1, SATA2, SATA3, SATA4, and SATA5, printed right next to them on the motherboard.

The beauty of SATA:

DOESN'T MATTER WHERE YOU PLUG IN WHAT, on those SATA connectors.
Use ANY one you wish, and plug whatever SATA device into it, that you wish.

BIOS will find the SATA device.
No matter what SATA connector you plug into, and no matter what SATA device.

Kapish?

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/wst3400/en/ug/ug_en.pdf

What a minute, this news just came in.............

The Blue SATA connector on the motherboard, under the black Ram Memory slots, is SATA0.
The Black SATA connector next to it is SATA1.

If you have SAS harddrives (Serial Attached SCSI), the power cable's connector has a provision, to plug the SATA data cable into it also.
If you do not have that particular SAS power cable it's OK.

You can just use a separate SATA power cable, (90 degree elbow to harddrive/optical drive), and a separate SATA data cable.

For additional questions, or to have me clarify further on anything I have stated above, post in a Comment.

you keep post with no OS stated, XP?
overheating cause many problems.
the keyboard has a driver in device manager, is it ok.
if yes , those cable connectors to the internal keyboard are very easy to damage, takes skills to gently unlock them and never force them.
2 kinds exist,
the wedge lock
and the hinge lock.
totally different usage.

Id say the cable end not seated or the connector packed in dirt.
or connector is damaged.

My friends also had a pro problem a blue line front of the laptop can some know how to fix it??


it's a likely a connection issue... probably an issue with the flat cable or connectors between the back of the LCD and the motherboard/video card inside the chassis - and it'll probably get worse and then quit altogether, frying major components in the process. You should get it in for service as soon as you can. I've had lots of laptops fail this way - the problem can be the cable itself.... a connector at one end or the other... etc. Very difficult to diagnose and will be intermittent. Next time you open the lid, it could be fine, or it could be totally whacked. The fix could be anything from reinforcing the cable or connections with packing tape (not kidding) to replacing the motherboard/LCD screen/connectors. Acer will have a repair procedure for it if under warranty.

To confirm this is a mechanical vs some other kind of problem, hook up an external monitor and switch to it. If no line, you know the video sub-system is OK and it's mechanical. If the line appears on the external monitor as well - then it's something different - probably the video system itself.

Need to know where to hook up the card reader and 2nd HD. I have an ASUS M2N68-AM motherboard and I was looking for a schematic for this board to tell me where I can safely hook things up.


I assume you have an external card reader with a USB connector. If that's the case, you plug the device into an existing and available USB port, either on the front or back of your PC, or side or back of your notebook.
If it's an internal one, then you should find an available power connector from the power supply, and you will probably need to remove a plate in your PC case to install the device.
Regarding the second HD, any connector on the motherboard will usually only accept its own matching connector from the new device.
If your HD is SATA, then you probably need a second data cable, since the power supply comes with two SATA power cables.
It should be connected next to the existing and identical connector for your existing HD, assuming it's also SATA. It the latter it's an IDE type HD, then you should try to find a matching set of connectors (usually two), and attach the data cable to either one. It does not matter which one you choose in this case, since your PC is already booting from the IDE HD and will consider the second HD as additional storage, not as your boot drive.

Computer will not turn on


You need to check the power cord, borrow, beg or steal one to test. If the laptop does not charge with a different power cord then the problem is elsewhere eg. a faulty power pack or even a faulty connector that plugs into the laptop (borrow a multi-meter to check the voltage of your power pack), also borrow a power pack to test your laptop, before you buy or send it away for a quote/repair.

If you determine that the laptop is faulty, then the cost of replacing a motherboard would not be worth it, even if you found one, it would most likely be a second hand one and how would you know it works, also if you are not technically minded you will it difficult to swap motherboards and it may not work when you put it together.

I suggest you put your money towards a new laptop, it will be faster and better.

Need to find out where the on/off cables hook to a 277977-001 motherboard by compaq


Hi,

Generaly, the little connectors on the printed side will face the bottom of the case. Also, typically, Black is negative, and white/colour is positive (except on the power sw, it doesn't matter). On the motherboard, where the connectors go, there should be some kind of print saying where to plug them in. (IE, POWER SW, would go into PWR, and HDD LED would go into HDLED and POWER LED would go into PWRLED).

b0dcbba.jpg
It may look different than this, but generally the same kind of layout, as you can see, it shows the positions, as well as positive and negative.

Unfortunetely, I can't seem to find a schematic for the Compaq 277977-001 motherboard. I will try and find one, but I hope this helps you out with what you are trying to do...
