Ooops.... I accidentally unpluged a couple pins in my mother board. And I don't know where exactly they go. They are the pins in the bottom right hand corner to the lower right of where the battery is. It will not power up.All I know is it says VH611 on the board. Thanks for the help!

    One said "power" the other "LED" I got the power on but it says "CPU unworkable or changed please recheck CPU soft menu"

    It still wont boot up passed that.

    Thank you for helping!

    I replaced the bettery and I retstored it to "Fail Safe" mode in CMOS andI still keep getting the same message. Is there any way to boot it up?

  • scrumners Aug 13, 2008

    I tried removing the battery and restarting but got the same message. I can't get into the the bios until after I get the message. It still doesn't work :(

  • scrumners Aug 14, 2008

    It comes up "CMOS Checksum error - defaults loaded" but doesn't go any farther than that. How can I check to see what the cpu speed should be? Thanks againg for the help.

How did you get load to fail safe mode in cmos? Was there an option for Last good known configuration? Try a new cmos battery leaving the old one out for like 30 min. Push the power button and quickly hold down del key until you see a blue screen which is the bios. Usually at the bottom of the screen you will see options. Find "load default settings" select it / F10 save and exit.
Also make sure the cpu is set with the correct speed. Over clocking may cause this. Or when you pulled the plug it can change a lot of settings. Hopefully you didn't short anything on your board when this happened. If all fails have board/cpu checked out. But if you haven't messed with the cpu settings in the bios before you should be able to at least get into bios. I'd try a new cmos battery first, possibly memory second then board/cpu. Good Luck Again.....

Go to the manufactures site of *********** board and get the wiring diagram. It's not as scary as it seems. You can try looking for the wire you may have unplugged. It will have the same amount of pin plugs unless its more than one wire. If so usually if you look on the black plug on the wire it should have an abbreviation like hdd, restart, power light ect.....
Do you think it was your power plugs?

    Try removing your cmos battery for a few minutes which should bring your system back to default. If you get a normal bootup make sure your time is set correctly by right clicking on time (bottom right on taskbar). If you don't get a boot up, try to get into the bios. After you power up immediately press "Del, F2" or which ever your bios uses. Look for the key F6, F5 ect. that sets system back to default. Hit F10 to save and exit. If that doesn't work let me know. Good luck

I have a hp pavilion a1777c desktop. i had to take it apart to replace hdd and dvd rom and some other parts. i have been trying to get detailed info on where the front power panel wires connect onto the...


There is usually a set of pins on the corner that are labeled get a magnify glass and light up the board take the glass and look down on one of the corners it is usually on the right corner of the bottom of the board at the bottom of the desktop case. You will usually see a series of abbreviations. LED, HDD, PWR, RES or RE the pins are marked. Now on the wires to the power button you will see the same wire abbreviations. Just hook up the HDD wire to the HDD pin the PWR to the PWR button wire and so on. RESET wire is RE or RES etc. Those really are the only three you will need. Not sure of the exact abbreviations. But they are lettered enough for you to match them. The best thing to do is try to download the board specs and get a look at the pins one side is neg and the other is positive it would be to your best interest to find the mother board specs for you mother board since you went all over the internet and could not find the board specs. just match the LED and the others they are marked PWR is the main and HDD is just showing when the HDD is working. The reset is for the button to reset the computer. It is basic and not that complicated really. Thanks for using FixYa! John

E-Machines T2642 PC Desktop from mother board 3 cables came unplugged 1 is green pwr led 1 is pwr s/w-black ,one is red hdd led i just need to know what order to plug them back in


Sorry you are having trouble.
Led's have a + and a - side.
With a magnifying glass you should be able to see where each one goes on the board. Start with pwr s/w. when you have it on the right pins then you can push the button and turn it on. I have done with with a screwdriver and quickly touching two pins at a time until it comes on.
Next the power LED. This one should be on all the time.
Last id hdd LED. This one will only be on when HDD is active and reading or writing.
The connector you are looking for is normally in the right hand corner opposite the power supply and has all the wires from the case going to it.

Need wire schematics for cnx-183 board


No you need a flashlight magnifing glass / open up the case and on the mother board usually on the bottom right side close to wires to the on switch will be one or mor groups of 6-8 pins with USB clearly marked under them. match them up with the plug as there is a blank if you look close.

on some mother boards there may be a connection in the middle left of the board.. bottom right is the most used.

Problem with VAIO PCV-RS320


The broken pins are definately the problem. Any CPU needs all the pins to work properly. This problem is solved by replacing the cpu.

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.

hi

in both the computers unplug the power cord and any external device attached to the system.

Press the power while the power cord if unplugged for 1 min exact, plug the power cord and see if this works. As there is extra power on the mother board which needs to be drained out

My pc won't give signal


The first thing that I would check is that the cable to the power switch is plugged into the mother board correctly. It almost sounds like the plug is backwards or offby 1 pin.
