Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
The eMachines E4904 desktop computer uses an Intel D102GGC2 motherboard.
This is Intel Support, and the download page for the motherboard manual, for the Intel D102GGC2 motherboard,
On this page I would like you to left-click right on -
English Product Guide [PDF]
May take a few seconds before you see the first page, and additional time for the PDF file to fully download.
Suggest you let the file fully download before looking through it.
The computer you are using has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files. If you do not have the latest version of Adobe Reader, 9.3.4., I would suggest downloading it. The new version will remove the old version.
This is the latest version of Adobe Reader download page,
I would uncheck the McAfee Security Scan Plus. Just MHO ]
The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area on the motherboard that the cables (Wires), from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

In the top header of the PDF file is a Zoom Tool icon.
The + sign is the Zoom In tool icon.
The - sign is the Zoom Out tool icon.
I would click on the Zoom Out tool icon, and reduce the view to 100% (100 percent)
At the top of the PDF file in the header is also the page number box.
To the right of the blue Down Arrow.
Go to Page 11.
There are two ways to get to Page 11.

Put your mouse cursor in the page number box.
Press the Enter key.
Page 11 shows you an illustration of the motherboard.
Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, the Front Panel header is to the very bottom Right corner of the motherboard.
(R in the illustration points to the Front Panel header)
You can see that the Front Panel header consists of 2 rows of pins.
These 2 rows of pins run parallel to the outside edge of the motherboard.
Go to Page 38.
