Question about IBM Aptiva E 240 (2158240) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Owners manual, Technical support, PC'd think IBM would have it all but Nooooooo...

I just need the system board layout to my IBM Apriva E Series, Machine type 2158.

I went on a rampage trying to get to the memory cards and unplugged a few things..... Hee Hee

Now I can't remember where they should all go. :-) ****!

That's what I get for fooling around where I don't belong.... A simple diagram would help but IBM has the worst user friendly site I have seen. Ayone know where I can download the copy?

    Asus P4GV LA Manual I need the owner/tech manual for this mobo. I can't figure out the pins for the HPanel, such as which way do they face etc. Also if there are any other jumpers I need to set?

    I have one of these boards.

    Your motherboard is out of a Compaq Presario SR1503WM. This board was produced by Asus for Compaq/HP and the unit was sold only at Walmart (hence the WM at the end of the model number.) Specifications, drivers & board graphic layouts are available on HP website. Just go to support and search by the model number & keyword "specifications".

    Good luck.
