ACER T690 "where does the sd card reader cable attach to the motherboard?


Motherboard installed in computer case, look at the bottom edge of the motherboard.

Now I need your eyes

Underneath that long white PCI slot at the Bottom, (There are 2),
is a Purple rectangular header. Two rows of pins.

To the right is another rectangular header, but this time in Blue.
Look below them on the motherboard. Towards the outside edge of the motherboard. Do you see USB next to either of them?

The Card Reader just attaches to a USB header. The rectangular header actually supports TWO USB ports.

This is why one of those headers may have two USB cables hooked to it, and go to two separate USB ports on the Front Panel of the computer.

The other USB header would be for the Card Reader.

Looking even more to the right, there are two Yellow headers, that I'm SURE are USB headers. Looks like one long header, but it isn't.

I COULD be mistaken about the Purple header, or Blue header.
One might be for IR Remote.

At any rate, again, I need your eyes. What is silkscreened on the motherboard, under those headers? Purple, Blue, and Yellow?

Unless just one plug connector, is unplugged from one of those headers. (Two cables go to Card Reader, and end in one plug connector, that plugs into the motherboard)
Then you would know by the process of simple elimination.

Note how in the two rows of pins, there is one missing in the corner.
5 pins on one side, 4 pins on the other side.
The missing pin is the KEY. That is how you orient the plug connector.

How do I connect the front usb wires to my fic c51g motherboard header?


How to Install Front USB by Connecting Front USB Ports to a Motherboard?In order to have front mounted USB you must have 3 things.
  1. A case with USB ports in the front of it.
  2. A motherboard that supports front USB (usually)
  3. Appropriate wiring between the USB port and the motherboard
A case can support front USB in two ways: via a pass thru connection, or via a port to header connection. The former, pass thru connection, is compatible with all motherboards that have USB ports. Pass thru front USB Pass thru front USB works by having the ports on the front of the case connect to either a standard USB cable, or a fairly small rounded cable. The cable goes from the front of the case to a special slot cover with either a hole (for the standard USB cable) or a special connector for the rounded cable. If the pass thru USB had a standard cable, then you would simply plug the standard cable into one of your back USB ports. If it had a rounded cable, then you have a secondary attachment with something that looks like an old style SCSI connector. The attachment plugs into both the slot cover, and the back USB ports. The draw back of pass thru front USB is that you lose the ports in the back.

Many 3rd party devices that add front USB to a system use the pass thru system. A good example is this now discontinued Front IO panel
directron_1721_2292726
Front USB via a Port to Header connection In order to hook up a Port to Header connection you have to make sure that the wires from your port will connect to your motherboard's header. To do this you need to know what header you have, and what type of connector you have on the wires. You'll find information on both below.

Almost all motherboards these days have a USB header. Due to size and cost restraints many motherboards only have 2 USB ports on their back panel, but often they can actually support more then 2 USB ports. They will typically support additional ports via the use of a USB header. A USB header is either a single or double row of header pins on the motherboard that can be used to add additional USB ports to a computer via the use of an appropriate set of header connectors, wires, and a USB port. Each pin on the header corresponds to a wire inside a USB cable. These pins must be clearly marked so that you can hook them up to the wiring correctly. There are 2 common layouts for a USB header.

Intel Standard USB header Layout: (used by over 90% of motherboards)

instusb1a.jpg

Gigabyte Style USB header Layout: (used most commonly on Gigabyte brand motherboards)

instusb2b

Now that we know the types of headers we have to take a moment to understand the USB wiring. Understanding the wires First off: All USB cables have 5 wires. 4 of these wires are actively used. Here's a reference from the official USB standard.

instusb3

On a front mounted USB port you'll have either the first 4 wires connected to properly colored wires (red for power, white/orange d-, green/yellow d+, black for ground) or all five wires attached to the port (same as the former, but one extra black wire). Now where it gets tricky is how to attach each of those wires to corresponding pins on the motherboard.

The wires are "tailed" (attached to a header connector) using any one of a number of different types of connectors. Below you'll find a list of the common ones.

Common USB case header connectors 4 joined pins + 1 extra ground.
usbheader

Compatibility: Compatible with both header arrangements because of the extra ground. May not work with some odd arrangements To hook up carefully match each pin. For the Intel hookup you'll have the extra ground wire not attached to anything. For the Gigabyte hookup you'll have the extra ground hooked to ground pin on the motherboard, and the standard ground jumper will be over the missing pin on the header.

All pins separated

instusb6

Compatibility: Compatible with every header. If all the pins are separated the only real issue is lining up the pins with the appropriate places on your header. It should be compatible with all headers. Just make sure you read the writing on each individual connector. Please check the troubleshooting info at the end of the article for important information on this configuration

Power and Ground separate, d-, d+ joined Lian-Li style

Compatibility: Compatible with all common headers. This sort of arrangement is common to almost all Lian-Li cases. Make sure that you get the wires connected to your header in the proper order. If you find that the port does not function the most common cause is accidental reverse of the d-,d+. Try switching it.

All pins joined Intel style easy connector

usbinst4
making the Connection Once you know what type of header you have, and what type of connector you have on the wiring, you need to connect the two of them. In order to do this, you must first figure out what pin goes with what part of the connector. To do this, you should first consult your motherboard manual. Below you'll find an excerpt from a fairly recent motherboard manual for the Asus A7M266 motherboard. It's typical of a motherboard manual for a board using the Intel standard USB header.

instusb5

The first thing you'll probably notice is that the wiring from your case and the names of the pins might not quite match up name wise. This is a common problem. Motherboard makers and case makers really haven't decided on what to call each pin. Here's a rough list of names.

Power may be called: P, VCC, USB Power, Power, and PUSB. On wiring it's always red. Ground may be called: G, GND, Ground, and GUSB. D- may be called: USB-, USBP-, D-, or just -. D+ may be called: USB+, USBP+, D+, or just +.

To complicate things a bit more you'll probably notice that there's a number before each one. Take a look at the picture above from the USB hookup diagram for the A7M266.

You'll see that Asus decided to number the middle pins. On the first row (starting with pin 1, and marked with a 1) you'll find that they list D- as USBP2-, and D+ as USBP2+. The number 2 tells you a few things. First off: It's the 3rd USB port on the motherboard (they started numbering at 0), second it tells you that that D- and D+ must be used for the same port. Case manufacturers are just as likely to number their ports differently.

Take a look once again at the 4-pin joined picture: usbheader

Notice that you're D-'s have either a 1 or a 2 on them. These also tell you that they are part of the same USB port. (Remember, 1 port has 4 required wires). The numbering on the connector and the numbering on the header doesn't have to match.

To connect everything grab the following connectors: a same number D pair, (D-, D+), 1 power, and one ground. If your power and ground are numbered make sure all 4 are the same number.

Tip: Most cases that use all separated pins will bundle these together for you to make it easier.

Now, take your Power, D-, D+, and Ground and line the connector up with the appropriate 4 header pins on your motherboard. The header pins will be in a row under the Intel style, and in the Gigabyte style it will either be a row of 1 pin, a gap, and then 3 pins, or 3 pins, a gap, and then 1 pin. Press the connector down over the header pin and make sure it's firmly attached. Once you have done this go back and grab another set of connector wires (Power, D-, D+, Ground), and hook up your second front USB port. If your case has more then 2 front USB ports, and your motherboard has more then one front USB headers, then repeat the above as necessary.

Example: If you were hooking up the front USB on a A7M266, on a case with the pictured 4-pin joined connector type then: VCC lines up with USB Power, USBP2- lines up with USB1-, USBP2+ lines up with USB1+, and GND lines up with GND. For port 2, VCC lines up with USB Power, USBP3- lines up with USB2-, USBP3+ lines up with USB2+, and GND lines up with GND.

WANT TO SEE DIAGRAMS OF A T650-8B7H ASPIRE COMPUTER COMPONENTS ie the inside parts motherbody ,power suply,processor,hard drive and sound and video cards


This is a PDF Service Manual for the Acer Aspire T650 series desktop computers, from Acer Support,

http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/manuals/acer/0000/servicemanuals/S.G_AS650_E500APF5_BOOK.book.pdf

After you click on the link you won't see anything happening for up to 30 seconds. The file is downloading in the background.

If you see the first page, and the file is still downloading, let the file download all the way before looking though it.

(Should the Service manual link not work for you, state so in a Comment)

Proper computer speak for motherboard is Mainboard. The mainboard is shown on Page 15.
Connections to the Headers on the motherboard, are shown on Page 19.

Orienting the motherboard so the Processor is to the top, and Ram Memory slots to the right, the Front Panel header is on the bottom right of the motherboard.
PANEL 1.

The Front Panel header, is where the various cables from the Front Panel of the computer go.
(Front Panel being the plastic panel in the front of the computer. For this computer, the Power On button, two USB ports, Speaker/Headphone jack, and Microphone jack are in the front panel)

To the left, and down a little bit, of the processor socket is the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt header.
Square in shape, white in color, 4 socket holes.

This is where the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable plugs into. (Two Black wires, two Yellow wires)
This is power for the Processor. If it isn't hooked up, the Processor won't turn on. No power.

Below the Processor socket's left corner is the header for the System Fan. The computer case fan. You will see there are 4 pins.
One for 12 Volts.
One for Ground.
One for detecting the RPM's of the fan. (Revolutions Per Minute)
One for varying the RPM's of the fan. This is the sensor connection.

To the upper right of the motherboard is another small white header. (Connector) This one has 3 pins. This is where the Processor (CPU) fan plugs in.

The long white connector below the CPU fan header is a 24-pin ATX main power connector.
The 24-pin ATX main power cable plugs in here.

The Front Panel header, or PANEL 1, is on the very bottom right.
Has two rows of pins.

Starting from the left side going right, there are 4 pins, NO pin, then 3 pins on the Top row.

Starting from the left going right, there are 7 pins across the bottom.

The pins on the Bottom are numbered Odd.
Starting from the left going right, the pins are numbered,
1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 13.

The pins on the Top are numbered Even.
Starting at the left going right the pins are numbered,
2, 4, 6, 8, NO pin, 12, and 14.

1) Pins 2 and 4 are for the MSG LED
(Pin 2 is for the + positive connection)

2) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED
(Pin 1 is for the + positive connection)

3) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch. (Button)
(Pin 7 is for the + positive connection)

4) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.
(Pin 6 is the + positive connection)

5) Pins 11 and 13 are for the ODD LED
(Pin 11 is the + positive connection)

6) Pins 12 and 14 are for the LAN LED

Page 116 shows an exploded diagram of the inside, of the T650.

Acer doesn't give info as to who made the motherboard for them. (All pre-built computers have their parts made by someone else)

Due to it's square shape it's a Micro-ATX form factor motherboard.
9.6 inches by 9.6 inches, or 244mm by 244mm.
(The Micro-ATX form factor can be as small as 171mm by 171mm.
The following will give you more information,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motherboard_form_factor )

Information about the Aspire T650 motherboard from me,

1) Motherboard chipset:
The motherboard chipset, is what determines what components are supported on a motherboard.
(Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C. Integrated Circuit)

The motherboard chipset is the Northbridge and Southbridge chip.

The Northbridge chip determines what Processors, and Ram Memory are supported, as well as what High Speed graphics are supported.

(The Northbridge chip handles the faster processes of the computer.
AGP and PCI Express are high speed graphics.

Any graphics card inserted into a PCI slot, is low speed graphics. This is handled by the Southbridge chip. It's a slower process. Integrated graphics are also handled by the Southbridge chip.

You may wish to view this motherboard diagram,

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

CPU stands for Central Processing Unit, or for short - Processor)

The Aspire T650 motherboard has an LA 775 processor socket.
The Northbridge chip is an ATI RC410
The Southbridge chip is a ULI M1573

Underneath the processor socket is the Northbridge chip. It's sitting diagonally, and has an aluminum heatsink sitting on top of it.

Below the Northbridge chip is a PCI-Express x16 slot used for a graphics card.

Below the PCI Express x16 slot is a PCI Express x1 slot. White in color, much shorter than a PCI slot.
There are two white PCI slots below the PCI Express x1 slot.

To the right of these white PCI slots is the Southbridge chip. ULI M1573
To the right of this chip are 4 SATA headers.
Below the 4 SATA headers is the Front Panel header.
(PANEL 1)

Are you having problems connecting components?
Do you need to know what components you can upgrade to?
(Processor, Ram Memory, graphics card, power supply, etc)
If so, simply state what information you need in a Comment.
