Hi,

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.

Need led sets or mother board set and resets


Im not sure what you are referring to with need led sets if its a computer contininually reseting / restarting

If the PSU power supply units fan is not working the PSU is faulty

http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/f/powersupplytest.htm


Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd floppy have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs



power and data to travel through every working device and to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error



even something as small as a faulty power lead or fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly



make sure ram modules and cmos batteries have dust free secure seatings and cmos battery has charge some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in



you might not have enough computer ram

not having enough computer ram will run your computer over its limits putting to much strain on the CPU central processing unit and can cause memory dumps



you might have to many programs trying to or accessing the internet at the same time
scroll to bottom toolbar (bottom of screen) right click select task manager

applications you will see whats running
if you see anything you dont need running select end now and you might uninstall that specific

program if you or computer does not require it to run and
some unnecessary programs that could be jamming up your computer

also under processes see what is ticking over in the background again if you see something you
dont need to be and users you will see who is using your computer

you might need to add more computer ram
if you're not sure if a module is right for your system use the

Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules. first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line

from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system
you should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility of the ram before making any purchase



might be getting hot

check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease

(When you hover your mouse cursor over it, "Show Adobe Reader toolbar" is briefly shown)

Different design motherboard in the layout of certain headers, and connectors, but same Ol' Front Panel header pinout, Intel uses for 10 pin Front Panel header's.
Whether it is an Intel O.E.M. motherboard, or one they made for a pre-built computer manufacturer.

Front Panel header for Gateway 500GR, is next to the bottom edge of the motherboard, and all the way towards the right.
5 pins across the Top row, 4 pins across the bottom row.

Pins on the Top row are numbered ODD.

Where do i plug in the power switch in the mother board


The eMachines T5274 uses an ECS 945GCT-M3 motherboard.

This is ECS Support, and the download page for the motherboard manual,

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=719&CategoryID=1&MenuID=16&LanID=0

To the right of the Download Site heading, (At the bottom), left-click on the country nearest yours.

This is a PDF file download. Takes a few seconds to see the first page come up, and additional time for the file to fully download.

After the file has fully downloaded, go to Page 11.
(The PDF file page number box at the top, next to the blue Down Arrow, will show 11)

In the motherboard photo shown, the number 12 points to Panel1.

This is the Front Panel header.
(The Front Panel is the plastic front of your computer. This particular connector is referred to as a Header)

Barring you cannot download the motherboard manual, I will explain in detail as I go along.

Orient the motherboard in your mind, so that we are both looking at it in the same direction.

Processor to the top, Ram Memory slots to the right, Panel1, (Front Panel header), is at the bottom Right corner, and is along the edge of the motherboard.

Page 33.
There are 2 rows of pins. One row along the top, one row along the bottom.

4 pins along the top, 5 pins along the bottom.

The Bottom row of pins are numbered Odd.
The numbering starts from the Left side of the motherboard, and goes towards the Right.

The Top row of pins are numbered Evenly.
Numbering starts from the Left side of the motherboard, and goes towards the Right.

Top row numbering of pins, starting from the Left side, going towards the Right,
2, 4, 6, 8, and 10. There is No pin 10. Just a flat spot.

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

Page 33.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.

Hard Disk LED (+) The Positive wire of the HDD LED light goes to Pin 1.
The Negative wire of the HDD LED light goes to Pin 3.
More than likely if the wires are marked, only the Positive ( + ) wire will be marked. Usually with a little tag that has + symbol on it.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch.
IF, a reset switch is offered on your eMachines.

Pin 7 is for the Positive wire. (+)
(It isn't necessary to have a Reset switch. It's a restart switch. Used to restart your computer, and there are many other options available)

C) Pin 9 is reserved, and not used.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive wire. (+)
(If the two wires are reversed, the Power On LED light will be dim)

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.
Pin 6 is for the Positive wire (+)

I can't find where the connections of the front panel are on the motherboard or where they go?


The eMachines T2893 desktop computer uses an Inte G845GVSR mobo. (MOtherBOard)

Intel Support>D845GVSR>Motherboard Manual,
(Intel's name - Product Guide),

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845gvsr/sb/cs-008823.htm

I would like you to left-click on the top file.
Click right on - Product Guide - PDF, in blue.

(File name underneath it is -
File Name: D845GVSR_Product Guide_English.pdf )

May take up to 30 seconds, before you see the first page.
(You will be staring at a blank screen until the first page comes up. The file is downloading in the background)

Took 5 seconds before I saw the first page, and an additional 12 to fully download, using a medium speed DSL connection.

The Front Panel header on the mobo is shown on Page 31. (C on the illustration. J9G1 on the mobo)

The Front Panel connections are on Page 32.

Barring that you cannot download this PDF file, or do not understand the manual, I will detail the Front Panel header connections.

Orienting the motherboard so we are both looking at it the same way;

The Processor is at the top, the ram memory slots are to the right side of the mobo, and the white PCI slots are to the bottom.

There are three PCI slots. The one closest to the Processor is PCI 1.
The one closest to the edge of the mobo is PCI 3.

To the far right of PCI 3 is the Front Panel header.
It's the header located closest to the Right side of the mobo, and the bottom edge, and is directly below the
CMOS battery.

There are two rows of pins.
Four across the top, Five across the bottom.

The top row of pins are numbered Evenly.
The bottom row of pins are numbered Odd.

Starting from the Left side of the mobo, going to the right, on the Top row,

Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. (There is No 10)

Starting from the Left side of the mobo, going to the right, on the Bottom row,

Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the Harddrive Activity LED
If you have a wire with a + sign on it (Positive) it goes to Pin 1.

B) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED.
(Pin 2 to the Green LED lamp, Pin 4 to the Yellow LED lamp, if applicable with your computer)

C) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch. (If applicable)
(Pin 5 is Ground)

D) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.
(Pin 8 is Ground)

E) Pin 9 is for the +5 Volt power.

(You are following Anti-Static precautions, right?)

Which connectors are used for front panel, power on (red @white) and led ( blue @ white) please show a close-up view


Hi,
On the motherboard the pinouts on the front panel should be colour coded, and marked with letters like in this picture >>>>>
ce10baf.jpg

The connectors are also marked corresponding to where the connect on the motherboard, like in this picture >>>>>>

Front panel leads Emachine model T2862


E-machine model T2862 pin-out for the 10-pin front panel header is screen-printed on my Emachine's motherboard, but is so small and far away from the actual pin location, that it is likely being overlooked. If looking into the computer case from the side where you remove the panel, the header looks like a row of four pins with one missing at the farthest right pin location, and a row of 5 pins underneath that, with the fifth pin directly below the missing (key) pin in the row above it. Starting on the first row, you would install the 2-pin connector from the front panel labeled "Power LED" to the leftmost and 2nd from the left pins. (You may need to switch it around to get it to work as the LED is polarized. You will know as soon as the system starts to boot up if it is on properly, as this light burns constantly if the unit is on.) Then, to the right of that connection, you would connect the 2-pin connector labeled "Power Switch" to the 3rd and 4th pins from the left on the first row. (It does not matter which way around this connector plugs on, as all we are really doing is allowing the front panel button to connect these pins together to turn the system's power supply on when you press the button.) OK! Drop down to the BOTTOM row of pins below the first row. To the leftmost and 2nd from the left pins on the second row you will install the connector labeled "HDD LED". (Again, you may have to switch it around to get it to work since it is polarized. You will have to watch the system boot up and as the hard drive is accessed, you will see it blinking randomly if it is connected properly. NOTE: You will not damage anything if this or the power LED is hooked up wrong. They simply will not function. So don't fret, just switch them around.) Next, the header has room to connect a reset switch if your system has one. (Mine does not.) You would install the 2-pin connector labeled "RESET" to the 3rd and 4th pins from the left on the second row of pins. (Again, this is a connector that works fine regardless of which way around you install it, as it simply lets the reset button connect these pins to reset the system when the button is pressed.) Finally, you will notice one pin is left unused below the missing (KEY) pin. As far as I know, this pin does nothing, but is likely a ground or maybe a source for DC power as I have seen before. The unused pin above it is for manufacturers who make one connector coming from the front of the case which is pre-wired with all these functions, so the connector (usually with 10 total possible wire locations) can have that one location sealed or capped to prevent someone from installing it the wrong way around and potentially sending voltages somewhere they shouldn't be going, or causing something to not work properly. I made a quick pic in MS Paint below for better reference:
