Hi dcsbase

Download CPU-Z here http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php
It will identify your motherboad as well as the type of memory and CPU you have.
It's free as well although you can make donations if you wish. Once you have identified your motherboard, you shoild be able to download its manual from the manufacturers website. :thumbsup:

I appreciate that program. I was trying to think of it! It should do the trick, I hope? I'll be back later for some more information. How do you get it to take a snap shot of screen? So I can show it.

Hi dcsbass

I searched online and found the manual for your PC here http://downloads.emachines.com/userguides/...s_HW_ref_en.pdf
Unfortunately they don't give the pin-outs for the motherboard. However all is not lost. Have a look at the pins on the motherboard where the wires came from. The pins are usually marked although you may need a magnifying glass to do this. The pins should be marked PWR, HDD, Reset etc.
I'm guessing, but on the front panel the wires will go to the power switch, hard disk activity and a power LED or reset switch. It is relatively straight forward matching up the wires to the motherboard pins. If you are not happy about doing this and are able to identify the motherboard pins and wiring to the front panel, post the info back here and I'll have a look at it for you.

SLIX, Thank You for looking that up. I noticed that it had three sets of wires when I pulled them loose. By accident!!!
They are marked as follows : BLK/White ---- PWR SWITCH
BLUE/WHITE----PWR LED
RED/WHITE----- HDD LED

I did find a place on board that showed where they go? Pin location. Like BLK/White --2/3.. (example). The only thing I couldn't find is pins. They are not numbered... Where the wires come from say front panel. The box also says front panel. Now I need to figure out, how the pins are arranged. There is nine pins also! I only pulled three sets? I looked to see if there was any floating around. zero ! Problem or not?
I also fond these #'s on Motherboard. Intel D865GVHZ. under this in real mall letters is LB6FI or 1. Not Sure?
Also was the following : C R(R was reversed) U US E2108820(With a check mark in it) N232

On Stick on Paper was the following : (GW) 152923509BS03672
TGHZ 50903669-AA-C92991-101 I hope you can find some info on this, or tell me where to look.
I do Appreciate it Very Much :flowers: :thumbsup: :trumpet: :inlove:

Since all appear to be front panel connectors you're not in too bad of shape.

I have hooked up the front panel connectors on a lot of motherboards without knowing the "pin out" .

Locate the front panel connectirs on the motherboar .
Start with the BLK/White ---- PWR SWITCH
Put the connector on 2 of the pins & press the power button
Keep doing that until the computer comes on.
when it comes on you have it in the right place.

Turn it off [DON'T make ANY connections with it on !
Always turn the computer off when plugging in or unplugging a connection]


Take the BLUE/WHITE----PWR LED & repeat the above.
When the power light comes on you have [of course] found the right pins for it.

Repeat with the RED/WHITE----- HDD LED
You may not see the HD LED until Woindows starts.

I have NEVER damaged a motherboard doing this.

.... So this is more then just an easy fix... Firstly the wires you pulled are for the power switch, power led, and hdd led (as described on the jumper)... 9 times out of 10, they each contain two wires, a negative and a positive... Normally the Negative is the one with white... On the section of the board that contains the pins those jumpers connect too, should have a small diagram underneath or even a text legend saying which one is which, it should also on one of the sides, say which row is negative and which row is positive... Then you plug them in, in order...

Also a good rule of thumb, power is normally going to be either on the end, or one before the end... power led usually will follow right behind, and so forth with the hdd led (not all the time, just as I have seen most older boards that is how they are..)

Hi dcsbass

I did find a place on board that showed where they go? Pin location. Like BLK/White --2/3.. (example). The only thing I couldn't find is pins.

Usually all the pins are grouped together. There should be a speaker inside your PC case (its the one that sounds when your PC is first switched on) and its wiring usually goes on the same group of pins as the front panel wiring. If you can locate the speaker, trace the wires back from it and you will find the group of pins you need.

They are no speaker wires! Just the ones that came loose. .I've looked for other leads.

Burn 1337 & SLIX : Thanks for information. First I didn't know that each side of connectors were + or -. I found a little arrow on each connector. I assume this is +. I hope ????? I had the little diagram all the time . I just didn't know what was # 1 or any thing. I finally found a pin with a 2 pointing at it. Also A 9 pointing at that pin. I don't have a reset. But it shows it on little diagram, Will work on that latter. I've been looking ever time I go inside case. no luck!!! Cross your figures for me. It started right up!!! Now if rest work we are in good shape.

OK
I think you are home and dry.

I don't have a reset. But it shows it on little diagram, Will work on that latter.

Although the motherboard may have a reset connection, if your front panel does not then just leave things as they are.
You say you have already sorted that out the power switch which is good. With regard to the HDD and Power LED's, don't worry if they are reversed. If they are, the only problem you will have is that they won't come on. This will not cause any damage. In this case just reverse them and all will be ok.
