Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
Need to re-attach power led ''blue/white'', hard drive indicator light- ''HDD Led'' red/white - and third the pwr switch black/white on a t6520 emachine motherboard rs480m, have no idea which goes where, lost my notes. tried emachines support and they want 2.99 an hour to talk on the phone. Any ideas would be usefull.
The manual for your computer is available from emachines, p.168 shows the info you need (replacing the front I/O panel)
The good news is that you can't harm the computer by connecting the wires wrong and the bad news is they just won't work the way they are supposed too if not connected properly. The LED's must have the correct polarity to work.
In general, if you look real close (as in magnifying glass and flash light) you will see the ID for each set of pins is printed on the motherboard (pwr,rst,HDD,pwr sw,speaker) Just match what it says on the motherboard to what it says on the wires. Don't worry if you get the polarity wrong. If a light doesn't work just swap the two wires. The colored wires should be positve (+), though. The reset (rst) and power switch (pwr sw) wires don't require polarity.
These instructions are for most computers in general, YMMV.
