Question about Motherboards
I took a plan of the motherboard out of the manual . But connecting it is a different story. For instance: Do I have IDE disk 3/4 or 1/2 ? How about Serial ATA 1 o3 2 ? Where do I have to connect USB E/G and or USB F/H ?
So, I cleaned my computer (inside) and disconnected some cable and now 2 USB ports (front panel) do not work any more. I also don't know wether this a software or hardware problem. Before I reinstall my whole operating system I want to make sure that hardware is not the problem and the connections to the motherboard are made properly.
ok lets see if i can help you out here
basically IDE 1+2 Is primary and 3+4 is secondary, it doesnt matter where you donnect your harddrive to it will still work ,, the standered is to use 1 and 2
as for the frount usb aint working is cause they are not connected or the wires are mixed up.. basically you can connect the wires to any usb section of the mainboard as long as you connect it propperly.
each wire is labeled and the bord is labelled as well. for example connect ground to ground, v++ to v++, +5 to +5 and -5 to *5 there is a diagram on the manual showing the connection ports location and pin id's it also labebled on the main board.
