First off, this is a donated computer in which i wish to make a little gaming box out of. Started off with someone donating a emachines t6412 to me, bought a 1tb hdd and 4 gbs or ram. Recently got a bigger case to be easier to work in, but i dont know where the case connectors are supposed to connect to the mobo at. I dont wanna short anything out or try to power it on without a ground because i dont have the money for a whole new motherboard & cpu. All i need at the moment is a manual or diagram to help me find out where the case connectors go (power switch, hdd led, power led, ground etc.)

thanks

Hi Welcome to geeks to go!

I was looking at the manual for your computer.

Here is the link to your manual online -->> HERE
page 177 for the "area" you are looking for

From what I can see this pic should show you the location of the I\O ports.(the arrows indicate the ports)

Something I have noticed at times when switching out parts: the mobo can has a specially designed port specific to the chassis it was in.
You may not have the proper plugs on your new chassis.

If you are up to it you could cut and reattach a new plug connector to all of the wires. But if you don't know how to do that I wouldn't attempt it.

If this isn't the problem then that picture should take care of what your looking for.


Good luck

Hey,

thanks for that, haha found that pdf already but didnt help.
So i was toying around and managed to find which prongs were the power and reset but didnt want to keep it in that case without a ground.
The new case has a TON of cables, i doubt it would be missing any, its just the fact that i have no clue which ones go where considering that they are all separate. the emachines case kept the wires all connected, 1 block for each of them (if that makes any sense) but the new case, the pwer switch and reset etc are all separate wires. I moved it back into the emachines case for now but would still like to find the info on the board.

do you know the name of the board? i havent been able to find it anywhere. was wondering if i found a manual just for the board itself it might tell me.

There is a "number" on the mobo somewhere normally near the center. look for it and post the number here then I will look it up.
