The board may have tiny words printed on it telling you what the plugs are.

Most newer boards are fool proof in that only the specified cables can be plugged in. generally the Hard drive plugs into IDE 1 or MAIN and CD drives plug into IDE 2
Video cards go into the First slot usually. It may be AGP or PCI or PCI express depending on the board. The extra PCI slots are for extra devices like NIC cards and Sound card. Power cables cant be plugged in wrong because there male to female and only fit into there designed plugs.

Make sure the motherboard is installed correctly and is not touching the actaul case but held up with spacers. you can find these at most Computer stores.

Really try and find the manual online if you can. It may be necesary when plugging in the little pins for the power switch and USB pins.

good luck.

This is the only info I could find for you since I don't know the company that manufactured your motherboard. From this website you can find out what exact drivers you're needing. You can go to all those particular companies's websites to find the drivers or you could try an online driver service, such as Driver Agent. It may cost you a few dollars to download the drivers for your computer, but they usually can find all the drivers you need. madhattercomputers.com

My computer wont turn on


take out the psu completely from the cpu/tower, plug in the power cord,if there is a switch on the psu turn it on, next locate the main power connector (24pin) and find green wire,take a piece of wire and insert it into the green wire connector,next touch the other end of the wire to the psu outer case or a black wire on the main connector,if all is well the psu will turn on,if you have a dc voltage tester check the voltages on the red and black wires on molex connector...5vdc,yellow and black...12vdc.if ok look at the main board and inspect the capacitors to see if they are swollen, if ok
replace psu and disconnect hdd,cd/dvd,floppy ect from main board only leave memory,processor and video, power on if ok shut off and reconnect hdd, power on, if ok shutoff and connect floppy, if ok power off and connect cd/dvd drive.during this testing you will know what is bad.let me know how it turns out.email; arjoon.ken@gmail.com

It is hard to write how to do something likethis but you should be ok if you just use a little common sense.

Things you will need: Static Wrist band (Optional) and some Thermal CompoundSuch as Artic Silver 3 and your New Mother Board manual. I would also have someQ-Tips and Alcohol on hand

Tools: A Screwdriver set (Non-Magnetized) and a small socket set or nut driverset

If you decide not to use a static wrist band you must always ground yourselfbefore touching any of the electrical components. This can be done by grabbingthe metal portion of your case with one hand and pull the parts with the other.

1. Find a nice flat surface to work on and lay an old towel down.
2. Un-hook all cable from your computer
3. Lay your computer on the towel and pull the covers.
4. Open your new Mother Board and take it out of the static bag. Lay the newMotherboard very close to where you are working. But lay it on top of thestatic bag.
5. Start pulling all your components from the Mother Board IE: Sound Card,Video Card, RAM and any other component that is plugged into it. Now would bethe time to insure that the new Motherboard is compatible with all yourcomponents. Look at the plug styles of you Video Card, Sound Card and RAM toinsure the are the same style.
6. Now I would unplug all the wires from the motherboard except the very smallwires that control your reset button, power and lights. These will be last.
7. Ok once you have unplugged everything but the control wires start taking thescrews out of the Mother Board. When n you get all the screws out slide theboard a little to the right (To get the Plug ports out of the case)
8. Now with the Power, LED and reset wires still hooked up.(This should be the only thing still plugged up) lift up and lay the old motherboar on the upper corner of your case in a fashion that it will sit withoutholding it.
9. Now grasp your new board with the static bag still underit and sit it on the corner across from the old boar. You now need to locatethe pins on the board that the LED, Power and reset wires plug into. If theyare not marked on the board you will need to look this portion up in yourmanual to figure out which pins go to what.
10. I would now (Once you locate what pins do what) Unplugeach wire from the old board one at a time and plug into the new board.
11. When all the wires are on the new board move the old oneout of the way. (Depending on how old your case is you might need to usespacers that usually come with the new motherboard to line up with the plugports on the back of the computer)
12. Now do everything in reverse order.

If your new motherboard did not come with a new Processor youwill need to pull the old one before you install the components back to the newboard.

  1. Take the fan off of the top of the processor on the old board by taking the screws out. Once the screws are out carefully wiggle the fan back and forth until it frees itself from the processor.
  2. Now you should take some alcohol and clean the old silver off the top of the processor. Once its clean you will see a lever on one side of the processor you will need to un-pin and lift upward to free the processor.
  3. Once free carefully lift the processor out of the socket and lower it into the socket on the new mother board. This will only fit one way and don’t force it or you will bend the pins. It should freely drop into the socket as long as your lever is in the upward position. Now you can snap the lever back down to lock it in place.
  4. Take a little more alcohol on a q-tip and clean the top of the processor again to get any oils or dust off. Now apply a small amount of the Thermal Silver to the top of your processor but cover the whole area.
  5. You can re-install your fan and plug it into the motherboard.

I tried to be as descriptive as possible and if you know alittle bit about computers your will be able to replace the motherboard withoutan major problems from this list. Some things in this process are common sceneso just think about what your doing and move slowly. I hope everything goeswell and if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Pointer locks up on the desk top after a power outage


Tried a different mouse? Maybe the power outage fried it. pc2 mouse? If it the wirring is fried or the mother board for the mouse is fried then you could purchase a USB mouse if you have an available port.  Finally download the mouse driver and reload it first.   Any more questions please ask. Thanks
