Most motherboard manufacturers actually print on the motherboards the model numbers etc. If you refer to the following link - look to the right of where you place the CPU and you will see white writing.

If your motherboard does not have this on it, you may be able to see the model number in the BIOS somewhere.

If you end up getting it working without the manual. Download a program called CPU-Z 90% of the time it will show what motherboard you are using.

How to connect front panel to acer power s290 motherboard


http://www.ascendtech.us/acer-aspire-sa90-mbs7109002-motherboard_i_mbacembs7109002.aspx

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the main wires from the Front panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

Looking at the Front Panel header it is parallel to the outside edge on the bottom/right of the motherboard.

13 pin header.
6 across the Top row with 1 pin missing, 7 across the Bottom row.

Top row is numbered EVEN
Starting on LEFT side coming across to the Right, Top row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, No Pin, 12, and 14.

Pins 2 and 4 have a Green area
Pins 6 and 8 have a Red area
No Pin 10.
Pins 12, and 14 have a Yellow area

Bottom row is numbered ODD.
Starting on LEFT side coming across to the Right, Bottom row;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, and 13.

Pins 2 and 4 have a Green area
Pins 6 and 8 have a Red area
No Pin 10.
Pins 12 and 14 have a Green area.

A) Pins 2 and 4 in the Green area (Top left) are for the Power On LED
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the Power On LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 6 and 8 in the Red area are for the Power On switch.

C) Pins 12 and 14 are N/C. Not Connected

D) Pins 1 and 3 in the Yellow area, are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 5 and 7 in the Purple area, are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

F) Pins 9, 11, and 13 are N/C.
(Pin 9 is 5 Volts DC. Used by the factory for testing)

Regards,
joecoolvette

(I thought the internal speaker was that round little 'buzzer', below the bottom white PCI slot, (PCI 2), and close to the edge of the motherboard )

Where doe's power led,power sw,hdd led on my e-machine


You will need the user's manual for your machine to make sure that you are hooking the wires up correctly. However, most motherboards label these connections directly on the motherboard next to their pins.
Look for an area on the mother motherboard with two rows of six to eight pins. Next to them you should labels such as PWR_SW (power switch), RST_SW (reset switch), HDD_LED, PWR_LED, etc. You won't mess anything up connecting something to the wrong pins, but it isn't that hard to figure out as the wires are usually labeled in the same manner as the pins. So HDD_LED would plug into the HDD_LED pins, PWR_SW to PWR_SW, etc.

I have installed a new motherboard in an acer case. The power cable from the switch on the front of the case will not connect to the board. Can anyone help? Thank you


You should read the motherboard manual, for cabling:
1. Power SW
2. Reset SW
3. HDD led
4. Power led - and power led +
5. Speaker

Cabling scheme, also written on the motherboard.

If the Power SW not installed the switch on does not work.
If the Reset SW not installed the switch reset does not work
If the HDD led
not installed the hard drive light (red) is not lit
If the Power led (+/-) not installed the power light (yellow) is not lit
If the Speakers are not installed, when the computer is on the beep sound is not heard.


I hope this information helps.

I want to put my acer motherboard into a tower as the flat desktop model is taking up too much space but I will need to know exactly where everything connects to the board (power, front panel,, on/off,...


Only a true Acer manual for this model of PC could assist you. They provide a special connector in this model, for the front panel connectors, that cannot be simply connected in a standard Desktop or Tower case.

I assume you are trying to connect the wires from the faceplate to the motherboard. Get a magnifying glass and see if the board is marked as to Power, Speaker, HDD LED, Reset, etc. Trace the wires to the faceplate and note what the function of each pair of wires is and attach to motherboard as necessary.

Wiring a P4M80-M4 mother board


You can download the manual for the motherboard here, just click on the "manual" link:

http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en-us/mb/driver.php?S_ID=246

This will list the front panel connections, which are 2 pins. Each of the jumpers, what you are calling clips, will connect two of the pins. Most cases have the jumpers labeled, i.e. power, reset, etc. But if they are not, it is usually: red/white = HDD led; green/white = power led; red/black = speaker; black/green = power switch; and black/white = reset. But your case may use a different wiring spec, but should list somewhere which wire is for which function.
