Need to know audio and power posts positions on ECS ATI RC410-M Motherboard

I am moving a motherboard from an eMachine case to a cooler master case. Everything fits and I have it mostly hooked up, but the audio and power posts on the motherboard are not marked as to what post goes to what, and the audio leads from the cooler master are not in a single plug.so they need to be hooked up individually. The posts for the power leads are not marked either as to what post is what so I have no idea what hooks where. I know I should have been more careful in unplugging the case leads, I just didn't think of it at the time. Any help is appreciated.

    It is a ECS ATI RC410-M Ver.1.1. Out of an eMachine T3516A desktop. I think I figured out the power posts positions, but I definately did not get the audio posts correct. I got the unit to power on and everything like it should, except for the audio.

    Any info is appreciated.

    Thanks

This is what you need,

http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/sb/cs-013541.htm


Not an ATI Radeon XPress 200 motherboard chipset?
I say thee nay to the forums,

1) The eMachines T5048 Desktop PC uses an Intel D102GGC2 motherboard.

Intel Support > D102GGC2 motherboard > Product Documentation and Manuals,


http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=15112&lang=eng&wapkw=%28D102GGC2%29

To the right of the first file -
File name: D102GGC2_ProductGuide_English.pdf
,left-click on Download.

On the next page left-click in the circle to the left of, I accept, etc.

[ The above is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files. {Do suggest upgrading to Adobe Reader X, (10), though, if you do not currently have it}

After you click on Download it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download ]


2) The motherboard chipset is an ATI Radeon XPress 200.
Uses an ATI Radeon XPress 200 Northbridge chip, and an ATI IXP 450 Southbridge chip.

Information on the Northbridge chip,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_ATI_chipsets#Comparison_of_Northbridges_2

Look under the Model heading;

ATI Radeon XPress 1150 (originally named ATI Radeon XPress for Intel)
Intel Essential Series
D101GCC/D102GCC

(Grand Country is the Code Name for the motherboard)

Now look under the Codename heading; {code name for the chipset}
RS400, RS415, RC400, RC410


Information on the Southbridge chip is in the table that is next.
(Comparison of Southbridges)


Primer;

The motherboard chipset is the Northbridge chip, and Southbridge chip.

(Does not apply to motherboards that support the Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, or Core i9)

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The Northbridge and Southbridge chips have their directional names, from the way they are placed on the motherboard, for one.

If the motherboard is placed so that the Processor at the Top, and the Ram Memory is to the right, the Processor is due North.

The Northbridge chip is placed close to the Processor.
The Southbridge chip is closer to the Bottom of the motherboard, or South.
(Closer to the expansion slots)

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.

Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

AGP and PCI-Express are High-speed graphics.
A graphics card inserted into a PCI expansion slot, or using Integrated Graphics, is Not high-speed graphics.
Anything associated with the PCI bus is handled by the Southbridge chip.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.

Anything connected to,
1) IDE
2) SATA
3) USB
4) Ethernet
5) Audio (Codec)

Motherboard diagram,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg


In the motherboard manual, (Product Guide), go to Page 11.
The motherboard is shown rotated to the right, in comparison to how it sits in a computer.

The Processor socket is indicated by the letter H.
To the Left is a square sitting diagonally. This is the Northbridge chip.

The Northbridge chip has an aluminum finned Heatsink sitting on top of it,

http://www.ascendtech.us/itemdesc.asp?ic=MB4INTD102GGC2&eq=&Tp=

Click on the small photo of the motherboard to enlarge.
Processor socket in the foreground, Northbridge chip with aluminum finned Heatsink, sitting on top of it.

[ The Southbridge chip also has a Heatsink sitting on top of it. It's to the top left corner of the Northbridge heatsink, in the photo ]

Notice the wording for the motherboards brief specifications in it's heading.
The last specifications stated; ATI RC410 Chipset MBoard.

ATI RC410 MotherBoard Chipset.

In otherwords ATI Radeon XPress 200.

I have a Compaq Presario SR2011WM which powered down on me. I get a solid light in the back and when I hit the power button I get a solid light on the front also which will not shut off unless I unplug it....


Well, unplugging something (I'm not quite clear on what you unplugged), especially if it supplies power to the processor usually doesn't fix things. If you mean the plug that looks like http://www.pcguide.com/byop/diagrams/figure9.jpg then it helps supply power to the motherboard, and I'm not sure what unplugging it would fix but it is more likely a motherboard issue than a processor issue if unplugging it fixed the problem. Regardless because this is an older and off the shelf computer upgrading it will be difficult due to the fact that celeron's don't have the same socket type as newer processors. If it is a motherboard issue then you will need a new motherboard and a new processor for that motherboard. Essentially the easiest and most cost effective thing would be to get a new computer.

ET 1161-05 IS NOT TURN ON THE POWER SUPLLY IS OK THEY SAID THE PROBLEM IS MOTHER BOARD BUT IN NOT SURE .


If the motherboard is bad, generally the problem is bad Electrolytic Capacitors.

Visual signs of capacitor failure,

http://www.capacitorlab.com/visible-failures/

The eMachines ET-1161 uses an ECS MCP61GM-PM motherboard

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Shared/4006203R/4006203Rmv.shtml

Who tested the Power Supply? You or them?

Has the test been performed to see if the problem is a bad Power On switch, or the Power Supply?
If you want to know how to perform this simple test post in a Comment.

Do you have access to a multimeter, or is a $5 to $10 multimeter in your budget?

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 (+)
