A quick google determined your emachines model w2040 is equipped with FIC motherboard AM37. Download the manual from
http://www.fic.com.tw/support/motherboard/motherboard.aspx?model_id=107
You'll find the pinout info for your wiring on page 13.
Most motherboards also have the pinouts silkscreened onto the board itself.

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.

There should be 2 rows of pins in parallel usually around the bottom edge of the motherboard. The markings for which is which should be next to them on the board. HDled+, HdLed-, PwrSw, PwrLed, or something similar.

If you do find them but the hard drive Led does'nt come on it's because the plug for it needs to be turned around the opposite way, Led's only work one way as they are diodes. Same for the Power Led.

If there are no letters near the pins then you would have to find the motherboard manual.

Pulled off front cover. three sets of wires came off. need to know where to reconnect. white/red wire HDD LED, white/green wire POWER LED, white/black wire POWER SW


Hi. You may want to check your motherboard for this wires to connect to, First, check your motherboards manual and look where the FRONT PANEL is located, then on the front panel or in the manual itself it will tell you where are those wires should be connected to. If you dont have the manual for your motherboard search it on google and do the same, and if still you coudnt find it over the internet then just look closely on your motherboard and look for the words HDD LED, POWER LED and POWER SW, usually those words or the FRONT PANEL is located on the left side bottom part of your motherboard. Hope This Helps

There are may motherboards, but most have writing on them as to what is suppose to plug where. For example, for the power switch, the lettering might be "Pwr" or "Power" or "Pwr sw". The pins are usually together and should fit the plug on the end of the wire.

T6410 EMACHINE TRYING TO CONNECT START BUTTON


The motherboard in your computer is an MSI MS-7145, which is also called RS480M. You can download a copy of the manual here. The front panel connections are on page 2-20.

Looking at the header JFP1, pins 1 through 9 (odd numbers) are the front row, pins 2 through 10 are the back. Pin 10 is the missing pin. The power switch connects to pins 6 and 8. The power LED connects to pins 2 and 4. The HDD LED connects to pins 1 and 3. The reset button, if used, connects to pins 5 and 7.

TRYING TO HOOK UP MU POWER BUTTON NEED TO KNOW


Hi there
The front panel connectors are mainly,
  • harddisk activity connector
  • power switch connector
  • reset switch connector
  • power LED connector
  • speakers connector
  • USB connector
Harddisk activity connector
This normally comes red in colour and is labeled as HDD-LED
Power switch connector
This comes green in colour and is labeled as POWER-SW
Reset switch connector
This usually comes grey in colour and is labeled as RST-SW
Power LED connector
This is usually green in colour and is labled as PWR-LED
Speakers connector
This speaker will give different beep sounds during boot to tell the user if there is any errors. It occupies 4 pins, however only 2 is important for the function. Be sure to connect the red coloured cable to the positive polarity and the black to the negative.

Basically my on buttong got stuck and when I was trying to get it out the front cover thing came of. Together the wires also came out.On the end of the wires it has...(POW S/W),(POW LED),(HDD LED). Please...


Ha Ha Ha, well your front cover thing is where your power on button and LED lights reside. the POW is your power wire that connects to your power switch you pried out of your front cover thing, or your power switch. Your POW LED is the wire that connects to the light that lets you know your computer is on and running on your front cover thing. and of course the other wire connects to the other LED light on your front cover thing. Good Luck. also, you can change the wires around until you get it right.
