Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

Motherboard Change Mine went up, (C2480 emachine) they replaced it with P/N K800AM64 motherboard. I have hooked everything back in the correct way. The Power LED, Power SW, and H.D.D. LED hook up are different. They are not spelled out on the new motherboard. One says PW_LED, PL_LED1, and nothing says for Power SW. With the two wires on the board and attempt to turn it on, it appears that it is no power due to the power switch wire is not in the correct place? Can you help me?

Need to look in the manual to find where they go. Don't just try at random or something will fry.

Need instructions for replacing and wiring Motherboard

Luckily that is pretty easy with modern motherboards.
1. Remove power and unplug all devices hooked to computer.
2. Open case.
3. Write down the location and orientation of all wires connecting to old motherboard.
4. Disconnect all wires from the case that are plugged into old motherboard.
5. Uncrew the screws holding the motherboard in the case.
6. Carefully remove old motherboard.
7. Install new motherboard and secure it to the case (probably using the same screws as the old MB)
8. Refer to diagram you made earlier to plug in all the wires to the proper places in the new motherboard.
9. Check and make sure the new motherboard works before closing the case.
10. If everything is working correctly, close up the case and you are done.

Ok these go on a small dual row of Header Pins on the Motherboard, Generally near the front or side of the MB. They may be marked the same as on the leads. Otherwise you will have to look in the manual to see what one is what. I wonder how they came off?

My Emachine T-6216 doesn't boot up, I try a new power supply, a new hard drive and nothing happens. So I assume the motherboard is no good.

Did you try to change the CPU? It is _NOT_ likely to be the problem.
But, if you did, and you still have the problem, then it _IS_ the motherboard.

If you didn't try to change the CPU, it probably _STILL_ is the motherboard.

Contact '' and see if you can purchase a replacement motherboard.

This is a motherboard problem. You'll need to replace it. Although, it may be cheaper just to buy a new PC (eMachines are never very expensive, or well-made for that matter)

I have an emachines T2542 computer with a bad motherboard (Imperial G motherboard). I am wondering if I have to get an identical motheboard to replace mine if I want to boot up using my hard disc with WIN...

Your better off replacing the motherboard with an Emachine spare, this is because your hard drive will not notice the change when replaced so you can still use all your programs.
If you was to get another motherboard with a different chipset or GPU (graphics processing unit) then chances are the operating system will not boot resulting in loss of data and programs due to a clean install.
