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.

(Series of pins sticking up from the motherboard)

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.

Slow way;
Click on the blue Down Arrow until you get to Page 11.

Fast way;
Put your mouse cursor in the page number box.
Left-click once.
Type 11.
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.
This page shows a color illustration of the Front Panel header, and where the cables (Wires) attach to.

There are Four pins on the Top row.
There are Five pins on the bottom row.

Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, the Top row of pins are numbered from the Left side of the motherboard, going towards the Right side.

Top row numbering going from the Left side of the motherboard, towards the Right side,
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

Bottom row numbering going from the Left side of the motherboard, towards the Right side,
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

1) Pins 1 and 3 are for the Harddrive Activity LED light.
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire. ( + )

2) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch, (Reset button), IF used.

3) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive wire. ( + )

4) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Power On button)

5) Pin 9 is for a 5 Volt wire.
Doubt it will be used.

Remember computer unplugged from power, AND observe Anti-Static Precautions BEFORE you reach inside your computer.

For any questions please post in a Comment.

There might be printing on the motherboard telling you where the pin numbers of the USB cables go and where the pins of power and reset button go and the LEDs.
For more information, you can also contact their support chat or email support on the following page. Series&model=E4264

On/off switch

Usually the power on button only has two wires. Then you have HDD led leads, reset leads, power led leads etc. These are all separate wires that fit onto separate pins in the Jpanel1 (front panel header).

Could be that the really old emachines grouped all these wires and made them into a plug to fit their own style motherboards.

If this is the case then that connector would not be on your newer motherboard, and it would have that Jpanel1 instead.

Hope this helps as I'm not very familiar with the old emachines.

Front panel leads


Pls confirm if your eMachine T2682 is using an Intel D845GVSR motherboard. If yes then this zipped pdf document is its manual. The different connection points is shown in p.14. With respect to orientation, for the switches - none, for the LEDs - there is a polarity orientation/requirement. The correct way is to use a continuity tester, determine which pins are tied to the ground and which are the anode/cathode of the LEDs. The short way is to power the unit and test plugin the LED's connectors and check which way they will light up. Just be sure to do it real quick so as not to burn them if the polarity is reversed. If it does not light up, reverse.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Intel emachine t3828

Geeze, after working on hardware for 27 years i love the short circut dummie. Anyway yes, it's the motherboard / yes the green light will still come on on that model and quite a few other models. Dont worry about repairing / i.e. removing components on the motherboard, it's a fruitless endevor but a great way to waste time. A motherboard for that model will cost about 100-150 bucks / easy replacement. It's actually rare for both the power supply and mother board to go out on a tower/mini tower type system. Older laptops had that type of prob. Those emachines were **** for the mostet part. On the other hand Gateway has really gone up in quality and i have been quite impressed with them in the last few years...

Front panel pin layout. I need the front panel pin layout especially for the HD IDE active LED.

Trial n Error is your best bet on the control pins panel there are two rows, with the power plugged in,with a screwdriver touch adjacent two pins together at a time starting with the top row then the bottom row, when you touch the right two pins your motherboard will power-up, then place the power-switch plug onto those two pins (the writing on the plug facing innwards toward the mainboard) the two pins for the reset switch and 99.9% of the time located directly next to the power switch or directly above the the power pins on the other row. For the LED lights you will have to just try the different pins and the Power LED will remain on as long as your mboard is on, but to find the LED pins for the Harddrive you will have to plug in your HDD and then when it powers up try the pins and the led for the HDD will flicker on-off, that would be the correct one. Dont worry your mboard will not be damaged by this in any way. Goodluck and let me know how you go. Thanks
