Ok  a long time ago i took apart this old v2 premire pc just to clean out dust from it after 5 years in storage when i was like 8 so i tried to write down where to put what so i could put it back together and i never did. now im 13 and i finaly found out where to plug in the power switch and thts the only thing it turns on and i hook it up to my tv but nothing shows up not even the bios so i wanna know how and where to plug in everything if u need some more info like model number and graphics card and stuff just tell me i just wanna know what to plug in on the mother board so the image shows up on my tv and at least the bios works. then i can work on it by myself from there. :) thx!

Possibly A Better Route To Pursue

 

This is not an XP issue, moving to Internal Hardware.

Welcome to BC !

 

I think you can get the manual for this computer here, apparently it is a PDF file so you will need access to a working computer to download it and possibly print the relevant parts of it.

Good lluck with your project.

Somewhere on the motherboard itself should be white lettering showing who made it and what the model number is. Did the 9120 come off the outside of the computer? I was looking for numbering on the motherboard itself. There may even be a FCC ID number which would also help identify the motherboard. Is it possible to take a picture of the motherboard with a digital camera and attach the photo to your next post?

Sorry about my #5 - I didn't read the small print on the link I found !

 

It seems that manuals for these computers were always hard to come by, even when they were new, so John_C's suggestion is probably your best bet now. Just to add to your problems, a contributor on the site where I found my way to the (inaccurate) link I gave earlier says that the maker's name and type numbers are not all that visible either.

 

Have you tried Google images for v2 Premier ?  Or even YouTube ?  You might find a photo of a mobo in situ, ie with all its connections, or a video on how to take one to pieces and put it together. Worth a look.

I am very sorry. I completely lost track of this thread. Nice Presentation. The motherboard is as noted a P4VMM2 from ECS. I am not sure what version you have.  Looking at the motherboard there should be a version number on it. I downloaded V1.1 and it shows all pin outs for connecting your components.

 

See this page. Under Socket 478. You have 8 different versions of the  P4VMM2 Motherboard. 

 

Edit: The version number relates to the BIOS version. I assume that is all that is different between those boards.
