    The motherboard has NON-STANDARD pin layout. It's something like this:

    *  *  *  *  *
    _  *  * _  *

    Or numbered:
    1 2 3 4 5
    _ 6 7 _ 8

I finally found a solution, on a dead page in google cache only:
http://www.pcclub.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=27%26threadid=16567
The solution was posted by JontyBonkers.


The pins go like this:
1 2 3 4 5
_ 6 7 _ 8

1 = ground
2 = ground
3 = D1-
4 = ground
5 = D1+
6 = D2-
7 = D2+
8 = +5V

It seems that the case for those Packard-Bells had a small circuit board that divided the 5V line to both sockets.

D- are usually white, D+ - green, 5V - red, ground - black

Front usb jumpers on the board are usually a small cluster of 9 pins, usually found down the bottom of the motherboard, and labeled fusb, or USB_H, or something similar. the front usb connectors have 2 sets of wires (8 in total) and are black, green, white and red. if the front connector is one whole plug, just plug it onto the header the right way and it should go.. if the pins are all individual.. you will need to push them down one by one in the right order.. easiest wat to do it is plug both the black ones on the first 2 pins after the single one, then the 2 greens side by side, then the whites, and finally the reds on the very end.

. red . wht . grn . blk . blank

hope this helps

Usually the built in case USB connectors plug into your motherboard. there should be a set of metal pins that stick up and may say USB on the board next to them. You have to connect them in, usually the manual that came with the board will tell you where. But if your board doesnt have extra pins for external UDB then your out of luck. If you connect them wrong or backward they wont work.

Usually theres a + and a - indicating wher they go and the end of the USB wires will have indiviual pin connectors or one solid brick that all the wires go into and you just fit in on the mobo.

Good luck

Ubuntu requires high graphic memory on your computer. It could install on some components but it doesn't work on whole installation process. If you are having a desktop machine, add graphic/video card to the motherboard so that Ubuntu will finally be installed in your computer.


Thanks

Hi when i start up my packard bell imedia i get a red light on my tower my fan is spining and my monitor is on a amber light plz help


Assuming the monitor is fine you can try the following:
  1. Open the machine and reseat the video card; if video card is onboard try
  2. Unplug the machine and remove the CMOS battery for a few minutes; Its possible Windows didn't shut down properly and CMOS is preventing a normal startup; after replacing the battery, boot up (will probably start up in safe mode
If neither of these fixes the problem, you may have an issue with the monitor itself. Best of luck.

Remove he dvd drive from Packard Bell computer


Remove both left and right panals on the tower. Disconnect the IDE ribbon cable and power from back of the cd drive. There also may be a small wire that connects ether to the sound card or motherboard also. Remove all screws from the right and left side of the device. Push the drive out the front.
