The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires connect to, is the Front Panel header.
(Power On switch, Power On LED, HarDDrive activity LED, etc)

The Front Panel header is Black, rectangular in shape, and is situated in a vertical position; located in the Bottom Right corner of the motherboard. (Next to the mounting hole)

It is a standard 9-pin HP Front Panel header,

http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware/Getting-a-new-case-i-need-Front-Panel-pinout/td-p/842897

Scroll down to the 9-pin Front Panel header photo, and pinout.

The 4-pin side is the EVEN side. Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10.
The 5-pin side is the ODD side. Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light Emitting Diode, so it is redundant to call it a light)

Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
IF the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, (IN use), switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. Reserved for factory use, and it is +5 Volts.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

Scroll the HP Support Motherboard Specification page down. Click on the + sign next to Motherboard Layout.

Left to Right on bottom edge of motherboard, Internal Connectors;

AUDIO_1 is for the audio ports on the Front Panel.
ATX_IN is where the small audio cable from the optical drive plugs in.
(CD/DVD drive)
IF TWO optical drives are used; the Main, or Primary optical drive, is connected with the small audio cable. NOT the secondary optical drive.

HD_AUDIO also connects to audio ports in the Front Panel.
May be mistaken, but don't believe SPDIF_OUT header is used.
1394A1 header is for the Firewire ports in the Front Panel (1394a)
USB 2 and USB 4 headers are for the Front Panel USB ports.
USB 1 and USB 3 should be for a Card Reader.

Need where the power cables go, and what they look like? Just post back in a Comment.

Start button would not respond plug disconected unsure were it goes e machine c 1940


The front of your computer is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

You want a Front Panel header pinout.

(See? Know you can go around, and brag to your friends!
"So,......mrcat_grave,.........do you know what a Front panel header is? What about a Front Panel header pinout? How about you Sally?"
Lol! )

Hmmm, I do not find an eMachines C1940 desktop computer.
Could this be an eMachines C1904, or S1940 desktop computer?

If so they both use an FIC AM37 motherboard,

(First International Computer, { Inc } AM37 is the model number of the motherboard)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&dlc=en&docname=bph07941&lc=en

(Scroll down for Motherboard Layout illustration, and Motherboard Photo )

Provided I am on the right track;

Motherboard installed in computer case:
Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, white long PCI slots to the Bottom;

The Front Panel header is at the Bottom/Right corner.
It is rectangular in shape, and situated Vertically.

Two columns of contact pins.
There are 4 pins on the Left side, 5 pins on the Right side.
(Do NOT get it mixed up with the IR header above it. 6 pins)

The pins are numbered EVEN on the Left side.
The pins are numbered ODD on the Right side.

Starting on the BOTTOM of the Left side, going towards the Top;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO pin 10.

Starting on the Bottom of the Right side, going towards the Top;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light)
[LED = Light Emitting Diode ]

Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is N/C.
Not Connected. Probably a 5 Volt power source, used by the factory to test with.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED. (Light)
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

Zip file PDF motherboard manual, for the FIC AM37 motherboard.
There is a version 1, and a version 2.
FIC AM37 v1, and FIC AM37 v2.

Doesn't matter which one you choose, as far as the Front Panel header pinout info is concerned.
You may however need info that is in the version 1, or is in the version 2.
You can download both.

Zip file. A compressed file used to send large amounts of information, more easily.
It needs to be decompressed, or 'unzipped'.

You have Winzip on your computer. It is an 'unzip' program.
If it is out of trial time, or not usable, suggest you download, and install the free 7-Zip.

Let's use the AM37 v1 manual as an example;

After you click on AM37 v1, a small window will come up on the right-
Opening am37_v1_manual.zip

Make SURE there is a Green dot, in the small circle to the left of Save File.
If not; click in the empty circle to the left of Save File.
Now go below in the small window, and click on OK.

A small window will come up on the left.
Allow the file to fully download in this small Download Window.
Then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

In the next window go to the far left, and click on - Extract all files
At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on -
Next, Next, and Finish.

In the last window DOUBLE-click right on the file name.
(It is next to the red Adobe PDF icon)

Need wiring diagram for placement of the internal cables in Compaq Presario SR5410F


Top view photo of the motherboard, of an MSI MS-7525 motherboard made FOR HP by MSI, for a Compaq Presario SR5410F Desktop PC,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01386897&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=3686678

Also scroll down the page, and click on the + sign to the left of -
Motherboard Layout.

A) 24-pin ATX main power cable:

In the photo, look to the right of the Blue ram memory slots.

The Yellowish/Whitish connector to the right of them, with two columns of 12 socket holes, is where the 24-pin ATX main power cable plugs in.

In the Motherboard Layout it is marked by - ATX1

This is a general example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

Note the middle photo, and the Lock on the side of the power cable's connector. The Lock has a hooked end that goes over a Tab, on the motherboard's connector.

The Lock works like a see-saw on a playground. The top is squeezed in, and this brings the hooked end away from the Tab, in order to remove the power cable.
When assured that the power cable is plugged in tightly, and therefore correctly, the hooked end of the Lock will be over the motherboard connector's Tab.

B) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable:

In the center of the motherboard, under the Processor socket, is the Northbridge chip. (Part of the motherboard chipset)
It is under a finned aluminum Heatsink, that resembles a meat tenderizer's head.

Draw an imaginary line up above it, in-between the Processor socket, and the aluminum finned Heatsink, and go straight LEFT.
See the whitish 4-socket hole square connector?

In the Motherboard Layout it is marked by - JPW1

This is where the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable plugs in. It is power for the Processor. Has the same locking setup as the 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's motherboard connector.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

C) In the Motherboard Layout to the top left corner of ram memory Slot 1, (DIMM1), is where the Processor fan connects.
CPU_FAN1

D) In the Motherboard Layout just below JPW1 is where the computer case fan plugs into. SYS_FAN1

E) In the Motherboard Layout - SATA1 - is where the SATA Harddrive data cable plugs into. (Below ram memory slots)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_ports.jpg

The SATA power cable from the power supply, plugs into the SATA harddrive. Note that the SATA power cable's connector, is longer in length than the SATA data cable's connector.

[SATA power cable has 15-pin. SATA data cable has 7-pins ]

Note that both cable's connectors, have an L-shape on the inside.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

NOTE*
This is what a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable looks like,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

IF, your SATA harddrive has a provision for a SATA power cable, AND a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, ONLY use just the SATA power cable!

Otherwise you will burn up the SATA harddrive. May not happen right away, but I assure you it will happen!

[ A note on SATA.
The beauty of SATA, is that you can plug into ANY SATA connector on the motherboard, and BIOS will see it.

If you plug the Harddrive into SATA 1, or SATA 2, or SATA 3, or SATA 4, connector on the motherboard, IT DOES NOT MATTER.
BIOS will find the Harddrive, or optical drive ]

The Front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

In the Motherboard Layout illustration, the Front Panel header is down at the Bottom/Right corner, and is marked - JFP1.
(Right in the very bottom/right corner is JUSB2. JFP1 is right above it)

JFP1. Junction Front Panel 1.
9-pin header. Black rectangle.
5 pins on the Right side, 4 pins on the Left side.

The pins are numbered EVEN on the LEFT side.
Starting on the BOTTOM going UP;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

The pins are numbered ODD on the RIGHT side.
Starting on the BOTTOM going UP;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED.
(Light Emitting Diode, so it is a light )

Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire. If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. 5 Volt power, and reserved for the factory to use.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR ON LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

E-Machines T3508 PC Desktop Motherboard connecting the wires


The eMachines T3058 Desktop PC uses an Intel D101GGC motherboard.

The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The rectangular area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

Front Panel header:

This link takes you to Intel Support, and the download page for the motherboard manual, for the Intel D101GGC motherboard,

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d101ggc/sb/CS-021718.htm

On this page click on the blue -
Intel Desktop Board D101GGC Product Guide - English (PDF)

The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name 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.

{ Took 7 seconds to download just now, with no additional download time needed.
Using medium speed DSL connection }

Ignore the following if you are aware;
At the top of the PDF file is the PDF file page number box, and the Zoom Out/Zoom In icons.

Zoom Out ( + ) enlarges the page view, Zoom In ( - ) reduces the page view.
For myself I reduce the view size to 100 or 75 percent.

The page number box is to the right of the Down Arrow.

(If you do not see this, hover your mouse cursor towards the bottom/middle. When the icons come up, {They were 'ghosted out'}, click on the PDF icon to the far right )

Provided that somehow you cannot download this motherboard manual;

Orient the motherboard so we are both looking at it in the same direction.
Same as it sits in the computer case.

Processor to the Top, Ram Memory to the Right, white PCI slots to the bottom.
The Front Panel header is at the Bottom/Right.

It is a rectangular block of plastic with two rows of pins.
4 across the Top, 5 across the Bottom.

It is numbered Even on the top, and Odd on the bottom.

Starting at the LEFT side going towards the right, on the top row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.
There is no Pin 10, just an empty space.

Starting at the LEFT side going towards the right, on the bottom row;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light. (Orange)
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire ( + )
If the LED light is dim when operating, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used. (Blue)

C) Pin 9 is for 5 Volts. Not Used (Black)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light. (Green)
Pin 2 is for the Positive wire ( + )
If the LED light is dim switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Red)

Do not know what wires coming from the Front Panel are the Power On switch wires, Power On LED light wires, or Harddrive activity LED light wires?

Remove the Front Panel, trace the wires to the Power On switch. (Two wires. Probably twisted together. Or all wires are in a single sheath)

Same for the Power On LED light, and the Harddrive LED light.

Need to know where the harddrive, or optical drive plugs in?
Need to know where the power cables from the Power Supply plug in?

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 (+)

When i try to start system it will no boot up. amber hd light stays on. i opened up hd and replaced board. mother board fairly new. replaced it with rebuilt one. what should i try next?


1) Why was the motherboard replaced?

2) If this is in reference to an HP Pavilion Media Center M1070n, it uses an Intel Pentium 4 Model 520 (2.8GHz) processor.

Did you make sure you plugged the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, into the motherboard?
This is power for a Pentium 4 processor, and on up.

This is HP Support, and the Motherboard Specifications page, for the HP Pavilion Media Center M1070N,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00208497&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=426501

Scrolling down the page is an illustration, and a photo of the motherboard.

Below the Processor socket is the Northbridge chip.
(The Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip are the motherboard chipset)

Intel i915P MCH

In the motherboard photo, and installed in your computer, the Northbridge chip has an aluminum heatsink sitting on top of it. (Has fins on top of the heatsink)

Going across to the Left, from the top left corner of the heatsink, is a square connector with 4 socket holes.
The female connector on the motherboard, for the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable.

26 pin connecter on power supply removal


Are you asking how to remove the 26-pin connector to the system board from its socket? There is a little clip on one side of it - just squeeze this and pull the plug out of the socket. You may have to use a little force or pull each side out a bit at a time.

My t2862 powerlight will not come on but a green led comes on on the main board, nothing else happens. I also disconnected the pwr sw,hdd led and pwr led plugs and don't know which pins they go on. Thanks


On the front panel header where the wires connect, there are two rows of 5 pins. The top row actually has 4 pins with the end one missing, and the bottom row has 5 pins. The first two pins on the top row are for the power LED. The next two pins are for the power switch. The first two pins on the bottom row are for the hard drive LED, and the next two pins are for the reset button (if your machine has one). The LED connections are polarized, so if you get the connector backwards the LED won't light but it won't be damaged. Just turn the plug around and put it back onto the pins if your power light or drive light don't work.

Now, as to the computer not starting. Assuming the problem isn't due to the power switch not being connected correctly, you might have a power supply problem, or the motherboard has failed. Both are common troubles.

Here's a picture (from helpwithpcs.com) of the plug on the cable from the computer power supply to the main board:
a5427df.jpg
This is the view from the end looking at the front of the plug. If you connect the pin marked PS_ON (it's a green wire) to the black ground wire on either side (not directly across), the power supply will turn on and its fan start running if it's working properly. If it doesn't start up, replace the power supply.

If the supply starts normally, your motherboard is likely to blame. You can search online for a replacement if you want to use the exact part. Don't try to get one from e-Machines; there many other sources. You can also use any motherboard that will fit into the case (micro-ATX style) and uses the same processor and memory.

I put a motherboard in my pc and i dont know where 2 put POWER SW,RESET SW,HDD LED,POWER LED....please help


http://eu.shuttle.com/archive/en/prod/mb/big/av49vn.jpg

ok man on this picture in the bottom of the pic there will be a sort of black rectangle with nine pins, 5 on bottom, four on top. This is where all your POWER SW,RESET SW,HDD LED,POWER LED will be plugged in. I could not find instructions for your board but for mine it is

Looking at the pins from the side where there are 5 pins on the bottom and 4 on top. The top two sould be the power led the two next to that should be the power switch, the bottom two to the left should be the hard drive led and the two next to that should be reset.

This is not the guaranteed position seeing as we have two completely different models.

Hope this helps.
