It's an emachines ET1810-03 with, of course, an OEM motherboard. SIW says the MB brand name is emachines - EMCP73VT-PM (made in guess where).

I can't find any info searching for it, but I hoped someone would have some generic idea about where I could find a hookup for an HDD LED. I hoped there might be one on the drive, but I don't see it. It's a Seagate 320GB in my new system.

Why the heck wouldn't they put an LED on it anyway?

Look at the bottom of the page. Closest diagram/pic I could find.

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

Muchas gracias Seņor, that's it. I'd love to know how you found that(I suppose it helps if you read Spanish better than I do). I opened my case and sure enough, it isn't labled but the pins are there. All I have to do now is bore a hole to mount the LED - piece of cake. I guess Packard Bell uses that board too, though I never saw that model number anywhere in that documentation.

Thanks,
Rusty



EDIT: I bored a hole in the front panel, super-glued the LED behind it, and it looks like it was made that way at the factory. Perfect.
