If you have a e-machine motherboard that is not still inside the computer the motherboard is probably dead or causing problems. So far i have replaced 3 e-machine MB's with Mini-atx style MB's

Heres some links:

Not real good but some information here.

a forum article on the power switches

ou might look up " trigen Imperial GL-VE" because this the motherboard your talking about. They are all over Ebay. H-P also uses trigen motherboards.

ok, thanks. i couldnt fink any info with what i have. it was ssuppose to be good

edit-this might sound stupid,but since it hase a fsb speed of 400mhz, can i put in a processer of higher fsb? that will just underclock the cpu wont it? then if i overclock the board it my run it to the normal speed?

More than likely one of two things will happen if you try using a 533 bus speed processor on that motherboard. It will either not boot up at all, or it will boot and the processor will show a lot lower speed it's running at. Sy if it's a 2.4 processor ithe motherboard may show it as 1.9 or 2.0 but it could also show as a 1.2. I really think the only way for you to overclock is to raise the front side bus (FSB) and e-machine MB's are so cheap you may not have the ability to change it in the BIOS. For the price you will be paying for a processor i would rather you think about buying a better motherboard of a known brand like Abit, Gigabyte, or Intel. i doubt ypou could get the speed to what the processor was set at in the factory.
