Replacement USB to Motherboard Connector

Q: Replacement USB to Motherboard Connector

Hi All,

I recently sleeved all the cables in my computer case and in the process, I ended up breaking the plastic USB connector (pictured below) for my computers front panel. I figured I could just order an extra connector but after searching for quite sometime, I cannot find anything.

Would anyone happen to know if these little plastic connectors can actually be purchased or what they are even called? I get a feeling that they have a specific name which is why my search is revealing nothing. Any help would be much appreciated. Feel free to let me know if you need anymore details or have any questions.

Thanks in advance,

 My  Notebook 15-ac151dx (product #: T0D84UA)  needs to have its DC-in power connector replaced. Using the HP PartSurfer website I came across P/N 813945-001 listed as the "DC-in power connector board" for my laptop model number. I was wondering if this includes the cable harness attached to it, or if it is just the connector. I pulled the broken DC-in connector and cable out of the laptop, and the cable harness is tagged with "90W HP P/N 799736-Y57 REV: X1", if that helps at all. Thanks.

Hi, I have an intel 484 socket motherboard without the video connector. How can i connect it with a monitor?

Plug a video controller card that has a VGA output into the motherboard and plug the monitor into the video controller. Exact type of controller card would depend on what kind of expansion interface types are available on the motherboard.

On my current power supply, mycomputer gets past post and it runs fine and everything but when i opened it up recently, i saw the the power supply motherboard connecter connected tothe mother board but 4 motherboard pins were not connected. And my computer still works! Why is this?

And when i go upgrade my power supply do i connect all of the 24 pinsor do i match the pin setup on the picture?

Hello Kelvin,

Yes, you would connect the new 24-pin PSU connection to the board with all 24 pins. Depending on the PSU you get, it may a one piece 24-pin or 20+4 pin connection. Here's some more detailed information about the ATX motherboard standard and 24-pin connections to help out more with this.

I have a CD drive already connected to the CD input on the motherboard for sound. Right next to that connection is a 4 pin AUX connection. I can add a DVD drive to that using an additional audio cable correct? It is a Pentium 4 1.7 Ghz.

A:AUX connector on Motherboard

But why would you want to?

The audio connection is only normally used for analogue sound, and thats rarely needed these days. All sound streams from a DVD are usually digital, and carried with the IDE data cable to the best of my knowledge.

I certainly do not connect the audio from the DVD and have no problems.

I just started building a new system by buying all new parts except using my old power supply. I realized that my old powersupply (Forton - only had a 20+4 pin connector instead of the 24 pin atx connector that my motherboard uses. I was wondering if I could combine the 20 pin and 4 pin connectors and plug them into the 24 pin socket, without causing any damage or malfunction.

Any help would be appreciated.

I just brought a new graphics card and a PSU (Corsair TX850). Everything my old PSU was connected to now has my new PSU, except for one 4-pin white box on the top right hand of my motherboard (Biostar TH55B HD) as my new PSU does not come with a 4-pin cable.

My motherboard can be seen here:

Not sure what that 4-pin connector is for, all it says above it is ''Power Indicator'' and below it ''ATXPWR2''.

So was just wondering if it is necessary to have the right connector connected to it before I turn on my PC.

I have this computer, and we are replacing the motherboard. Everything fits fine, and when you turn on the PC everything has power and the CPU fan spins and everything, but it does not POST.

We believe the problem is that the JPW1 power connector is not connected. The manual says that this 12V connector provides power to the CPU. The old motherboard did not have this connector, and thus the power supply does not have a connector that fits.

Is there a way to adapt one of the free power connectors to the JPW1 connector? If not, will we need a new power supply?

Bluetooth connection most likely. If that is what it is and your laptop doesn't have bluetooth on it, you have to remember most computer manufacturer's will only use a couple of makes/models of motherboards and will use one with all options available on it. They then use that board in most systems in a line up, and just charge more for the extras if used.

When adding more RAM I broke the connector on the motherboard for the keyboard flat cable connector.  The little plastic piece on the connector that secures the cable into the connector is what broke. I have it working for now by using tape to hold the cable in the connector, but maybe I could buy another connector of the same type, remove that plastic piece, and put it in the broken connector on the MB?  Can someone identify the name or part number of that type of connector, so I know what replacement part I need? I guess it's some type of a ZIF connector?

A:Burned connector between motherboard and psu

I would guess the power supply has problems if you have melted wires, but that may have also messed up the motherboard, as a motherboard is more sensitive than a power wire. Did you test any other voltages? Sometimes just one voltage goes wacky, while the others are ok. If your 4pin connector is fried though then I'd think it was putting way too much voltage out at some time.

A power supply would be about $40.

A motherboard would be about $110
I think the 8400 has a motherboard that's in between atx and micro atx, so you'd probably have to get a micro atx board to get it to fit. It might have to have some modification to get the power button/leds to work with the new board. Here's a micro atx board that should work.

I'd probably replace the power supply first, and if that fixes the problem, good, but if not then replace the motherboard as well. Hopefully it didn't also mess up the cpu or ram or anything, or it could get very expensive.

I am shopping around for a new power supply for this motherboard. In addition to the ATX and ATX12V connectors, there is also an AUX power connector on this board. The PSU's I'd like to get for it (namely, the SmartPower2.0 from Antec) do not have this connector. This review by anandtech seems to indicate this motherboard does not need the aux power to function correctly.

Can anyone here confirm this? Thanks!

From that article, I take that it can work without it.
I have an old psu that has a power lead like that, but it's only 230w.

A:Motherboard 9-Pin Front-Panel Connector

If the motherboard requires a 2 pin connector and the case manufacturer supplies a 3 pin connector just take the pins out of the connector and place them next to one another in the connector. There is a little tab on the connector you can lift up and slide the pin out. It's hard to explain here, but once you look at it closely you will see what I mean.

Is it advisable to get a local computer shop to convert the Gameport 15-pin plug to a USB plug? Or is it a tricky job? Will the Yamaha driver or a Vista driver make my external synthesizer work?

It makes no difference whatsoever. Upon booting, when the POST has completed, providing that you have a bootable OS present, the system will boot from that disk regardless of which motherboard connector it is attached to (or if it is attached to an expansion card, like mine is). On one of my older systems, I couldn't use ports 0 and 1 because they were obscured by my graphics card. There was no problem in booting with the drive attached to one of the other ports.

HI, I was wondering if it is safe to use an atx psu on a motherboard with an eatx power connector. The motherboard has a 24-pin eatx and a 4-pin atx 12v connector. I bought the motherboard and started using an atx psu and everything seems to work ok then realized after it was an eatx power connector on the motherboard. Are there eatx psu's? Thanks

A:Safe to use ATX PSU on a motherboard with an EATX power connector?

EATX is a form factor (12"x13") not a power connector. I'm assuming you are talking about using a PSU with a 20 pin (old ATX) connector with a newer motherboard that has a 24 pin (current ATX) connector. If that is the case you will need to consult your motherboard's manual. Some 24 pin boards run fine with only 20 pins some don't. The issue is that each pin in only rated to carry a certain amount of current (Amps). If you overload one of these pins your risk burning or melting the ATX connector on either the PSU, Motherboard, or both.

A:Connecting 2x2 connector from power supply into motherboard shorts everything out?

If you don't own a power supply tester take your tower to a local shop and have them test the power supply. Even if the power supply tests good, have them "jump" a known good power supply to the board and see if the problem continues.

I have people bring towers in quite often for testing. It takes 20-30 minutes and the cost should be minimal perhaps $25-$30. You need to find out if your problem is with the power supply or the motherboard.

So I have noticed my pc would shut off randomly and its because the 24 volt connector wasn't in all the way so when the pc would move slightly the connector would disconnect itself. When I go to push the 24 volt in all the way it wont clip onto the clip on the motherboard. It will stay in but it wont fully go in and I can easily just pull it out or it will just fall out from movement. Any ideas how to fix this?

A:24 Volt connector wont fully connect to Motherboard

I think it is not 24 volts. it is a 24-pin(also labelled as 20+4pin) , 12volts main power connector.
the slots are designed so that the power connector will slide into the slot to form like a 'lock and key'. to remove it.
see to it that the power connector is inserted in the right direction as shown in the pics (towards the side):

What is the layout on the motherboard for the front panel LED connectors?  The XPS 9000 manual does not specify that at all.  The motherboard itself is model number 0X501H, as given by CPU-Z.

Is the layout the same as the one listed in this thread below regarding the XPS 8500?

Hello friends, love your very informative forum. I have an issue i believe you can help me with, i am setting up my old desktop computer for a family member, but its motherboard is not working. The motherboard was Gigabyte Ga-m68m-S2P and they are long out of the market. Since a DDR2 motherboard is very expensive in my country (about 110 euros) could i just buy a new motherboard and new rams and swap them? It would save me half the money but i am not sure what happens about compatibility. The cpu is an old athlon II and the gpu was an old geforce i dont remember the right model. Can you inform me about the subject and answer me if this is doable?

Hi all,
I have recently had hardware failure in my DIY PC (most likely the motherboard).
I have taken it to a repair shop to have it diagnosed and was wondering if I could get some suggestions for a new motherboard if it turns out to be that.
I use my PC for heavy gaming as well as geometric map design and need a reliable (relatively cheap) board that is capable of supporting the hardware I am currently using (9800gt asus overclocked) pentium 2 2.8ghz processor.
asus Xonar D2x Audio (pcie).
It should also be noted that my old motherboard was a socket 775. (and the new one should be the same).
Can you reccomend one without an nforce chipset as well as these seem to be useless.
Thanks for your responses

My friend has a Compaq SR1000 that uses a 939 socket motherboard. The motherboard stopped working a while ago. My question is, can I pick out any 939 socket motherboard that I can find on Ebay to replace the non working motherboard?

A:Motherboard replacement?

Most likely no. Big box systems like dell, hp, etc use proprietary parts. That is they are made to the system builders specs NOT standard atx type specs.

While a standard atx type board might "work" it may also have problems lining up with the existing case.

FWIW socket 939 is pretty old technology and IMO NOT worth putting any money into. In addition ebay is about the last place to buy parts.

A:Which replacement motherboard?

You are not going to find any new socket A type boards any longer. If you want to stay with that cpu, then you would need to buy one used. You might find a deal on an old board from a local shop OR you can try ebay. One big problem is that boards from that era, almost all used the same bad caps. If you do find one, you may have the same problem down the road.

FWIW I would just get a modern motherboard, cpu, ram, and pw supply and be done with the issue. Note unless you buy a board with onboard video, you will need a new video card as well.

"Kobian PVM890M 1.0"

I purchased a number of clone PC's in an auction for schools in Africa, and some of them have been diagnosed with Faulty Motherboards, and these PC's are fitted with this motherboard.

Running Windows XP Pro

I would like to replace these motherboards, using the same Processors and Memory that came with the PC's.
I am told the Processor fitted is "Socket Type", and the Power Supply that goes on the motherboard has "10 pins".
Could anyone help identify the type of MotherBoard, which replacement type should I be looking for, and if anyone can point me in the direction of a source of supply for this,

How do I translate the different speeds and specifications?

Thank you for your help

Basically any socket 775 micro Atx board will fit but will it boot? You have to see if the front jumpers (power, reset, hard drive led etc are one plug or a series of loose wires to attach because if it is one plug, you will never get it to start. The other issue is change the board and you have to buy Windows as you cannot use the HP restore disks on a new motherboard which won't contain the bios switch to allow that and is illegal anyway.

You will have to do a lot of research on that current motherboard in order to make sure you get one that is compatible.

I would call back DELL and ask them if the one they are offerening you is a refurb or is it brand new? Dell has a habit of selling refurb parts.

Also ask them for the make/model number of the motherboard and I can help you do some research if you like?

A:Motherboard Replacement

It's a trap. You can probably use almost any Am2 motherboard but if you don't buy it from HP where it will be at least 4 times what it is worth, then you will wind up buying a new copy of Windows because your restore disks will only work with an HP supplied motherboard. So you can see what they have but most likely you will be better off using the components, buying a new case, motherboard and copy of Windows.

To make a long story short, I have a Gateway computer in which I found to have a bad motherboard. I have purchased a used Asus P4 motherboard/2.4 mhz CPU combo to breathe life back into her. The hard drive already has Windows XP Home installed on it and I would like to continue using everything currently installed on the hard drive, as well as the operating system already in place, as is. Realizing that Windows XP Home is going to find LOTS of new hardware installed when I finally boot this thing up, what is the best approach to this upgrade? I do have the driver disk for the board on hand. Should I simply boot it up and let it search for the drivers on the CD, or is this going to be a much more difficult upgrade? Does anyone have any suggestions outside this approach? Thanks, a bunch, in advance!

Yes HP will do paid out of warranty service but it is very expensive. Your best bet is to procure the motherboard and either do it yourself, which I understand most people do not want to do or take it to a local independent service shop. Expect the whole thing to cost perhaps $200-300. HP would charge at the top end if that range or perhaps slightly more. I do not speck for them however so you should call.

Here's the Manual: Service Manual If you try to go Intel you will need to buy a motherboard, and a processor and a heatsink/fan.  If you go AMD all you need is the motherboard since your cooling fan/heatsink can be ported over, and the processor is soldered to the board.  This is the motherboard you want: System board (includes replacement thermal materials): For use only with models with an AMD A6-5200 processor ? Models with Windows 8 Standard 730670-501 ? Models with Windows 8 Professional 730670-601 I am going to assume you have Windows standard.  HP does not have the A6 AMD board in the store....they only have the A4 board and it is stupid expensive: Since you do not have one to exchange, it is going to cost close to $500. I can find you a good used Intel 250 G1 for that price.  You can find the board for $67 on eBay: I know you wanted something a bit more powerful but the A4 will be a major improvement over what you have. The seller laptopaid, is one of the best on eBay for this kind of thing. I can't count how much stuff I have purchased from them.  Post back if you need any more help. The Manual shows just how to replace the motherboard. Port your fan, memory, wireless card over. You will have to reinstall original Windows but the motherboard has a Key Code embedded in the BIOS and will just activate. If your hard drive still has the original HP install it should activate itself when first connected to the internet but be prepared if necessary to do a system restore. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

A:Motherboard replacement help !

It is a faster configuration compared to your current Pentium 4 PC and the graphics support is light years ahead compared to your old Intel 845 graphics controller. You can use the stock heatsink/cooler that comes with the APU which is sufficient. But one thing you should keep in mind that the configuration is pretty basic and wont perform great on demanding applications and can be used best for light load usage like word processing, Internet browsing etc. Since the AMD APU had good graphics hardware you can enjoy HD videos too without issues. For such a low price it is a worthy replacement if you cant go with a more capable hardware like Core i3 platform which costs close to 3 times than the Combo you said. Also add 8 GB of DDR3 RAM to make sure every thing perform maximum possible.

Hello. I have a custom-built computer with a Gigabyte GA-KN8SC-939 motherboard with a Athlon64 3500+ processor. The motherboard had been having problems starting about a few years ago with random crashes occurring whenever devices were plugged in to now crashing and freezing up on a regular basis. I suspected it was the motherboard (no other devices were having problems, and the memory wasn't faulty), so I believe I need to replace the motherboard. However, knowing the age of this computer, I don't know if it's possible. Do you guys know of a motherboard that would have performance similar to this one and also work with a Socket 939 Athlon64 3500+ processor?

A:Need help a replacement motherboard

About the only place you will find a 939 board these days is ebay or at a computer shop that deals in used hardware. For less than $150 you can get an AM3 board Athlon II X2 and 4GB DDR3 If you want to go that route.
CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 250 Regor 3.0GHz
Motherboard: ASRock M3A770DE AM3
RAM:Crucial 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333

A setup such as this while not exceptionally powerful by todays standards, would run circles around that old socket 930 Athlon64 3500+ processor.

It is very possibly an ECS or PcChips motherboard, as Gateway and Emachines (same company) are famous for using. And see if you can find one new at New Egg or some place like that.

Taking a computer to the Geek Squad is not a recommended thing. Often they do inferior work and frequently talk people into letting them make repairs that are not necessary and sometimes do not work.

Hey guys, I'm gonna replace my motherboard in the near future and I was wondering if anybody knew a way of not needing to reinstall windows from scratch.

A:Motherboard Replacement

Unfortunately you will probably need to. If you replace your motherboard XP will reconize this as a new piece of hardware and you may even be required to purchase a new license. Microsoft may see this as a new computer. You will probably not even be able to boot with the current o.s. installed on the drive.

Hi I had problems with my computer and after a long epic of taking it back and forth to the shop they have decided to replace my MB. I had an ASUS P8H61-M LE/USB3 and it is being replaced by a GIGABYTE Z77MX-D3H. I'm being charged extra as they said it is a slightly better board. Opinions and info about this welcome. Thanks.

What are you wanting to know?

The Asus is discontinued, so they can't replace it. And based on current prices, the Gigabyte is more expensive.

the only way to find that board is used, or direct from Dell, si i would just find a pentium 4 board that is as close to your board as possible, and replace it with that?

other than that im not quite sure, but feel free to message me and i will get ahold of some people and see what we can come up with...

I have old Dimension 4600 having E210882 motherboard and AA label says C23438-404. The board has been dead and I am going to replace it. But on eBay I could find few mobos with C23438-502 or C23438-500. Are they valid replacement? What is difference?

A:Motherboard replacement

Those are not Dell part numbers so I cannot speak to them. The Dell motherboard part numbers for the 13 year old Dimension 4600 are =HY008, Northwood CPUsXM970, Prescott CPUs
But finding them on the internet may be an issue.

I have Windows XP and the Motherboard is described as Eveshamvale - no other model number or info given I am getting an intermittent dual tone beep and I think this is caused by the fan failing to run full Motherboard Replacement Fan speed Motherboard Fan Replacement Is this a correct assumption first of all Do the beeps appear when perhaps the temperature rises because of the slowing down on the fan blades I have undone the four screws that keep the fan blades attached to the rest of the fan housing and have oiled it sparingly Although the beep will often go away for hours at a time they do return I am not conversant with motherboards at all although I have installed DVD Drives etc How difficult is it to replace the fan with a new one and how would I go about getting one My system is getting on in age years old but I want to keep it going until next year if poss when Windows will have been out for some time Any advice would be greatly appreciated you tech guys Wen nbsp

Ok, so recently I bought an EVGA 9400 GT vid card, and with some research found out that my Dimension E310 Mobo is crap. In the BIOS I can't directly select which card to use. Also when I set it on auto detect the EVGA freezes and gives me errors and a whole bunch of crap. Anyways, I need to replace my motherboard but I am not sure what to get.

Compatibility Needs:

Pentium 4 Processor
DDR2 800MH Ram

The only real question I need answered is that say I find a mobo on newegg that says it supports DDR2 1200 memory standard. Will it support my 4GB of DDR2 MH800?

For your only real question, DDR2 800 Should work on mobos supporting DDR2 1200. As for whether it supports 4GB or not the specifications page of the product you choose should answer the question.

Where can I buy a replacement Joshua H61 motherboard and I7 cpu. The board was manufactured by Foxcomm

A:Replacement motherboard and cpu

Hi, The Joshua H61 that is supplied in HP PCs is an OEM model made to HP's specifications. You can try the HP Parts Store or Ebay for the exact motherboard. Even if you buy the exact motherboard, I would suggest that you that it to an authorized HP repair shop and have the motherboard prep'd. This is a list of the HP approved processors for the Joshua motherboard. The UEFI BIOS for the Joshua can be found here.

I may need to replace the motherboard or CPU. If one of these 2 needs to be replaced, is it still possible to maintain all other parts? Are there still (new) parts available that would fit in this setting? The price does not matter, the cheapest one that fits in this system would be ok.

Recently my pc has more trouble booting each day. When i press the power button, it gets turned on but stops booting while reading the drives (the screen is still black by then). When i keep resetting it gets further sometimes, but it can take up to 30 tries to get into windows.

So i figured i'll replace my motherboard (Asrock K7VT4A Pro (Socket A)).
I heard that if i get another Socket-A type motherboard, i won't have to reinstall windows (reinstalling windows would be a real prob).
But i'm still wondering if this counts for only Asrock motherboards, or if i can also replace it with an AMD for instance.

Any advice or comment is welcome, as i realy dont even know if replacing the motherboard is the right thing to do..

A:Motherboard replacement concerns

installing windows is always a pain in the ***- no matter what system you put it on. You can reuse your old windows copy but you'll need to get a new key from M$. It will prompt you to call a 1-800 #. XP is only licensed for one machine at a time.

personally, I would take this time for an upgrade. You can salvage most of the parts, cdrom, memory (if it is DDR400), floppy drive, zip drive, etc....

sell the XP CPU- there's a high demand on ebay for it.

sell the video card

get yourself a nice AMD 64 system with a nice video card.

Hope I don t confuse anyone with what I am trying to find out As we know XP monitors your PC for hardware changes and if the chipset is different you get the nice Blue Screen upon boot up and you cannot proceed If the motherboard I am going to replace is working I know I can go in and change the IDE driver to standard and then change out the motherboard to whatever kind Windows XP a Motherboard Replacement after I want and it will refind the chipset without the blue screen But what if the motherboard is blown or bad and I have to replace it How can I get into windows xp to change the IDE or whatever I need to do so that we can replace the m otherboard BTW I own and operate a PC Repair store and this comes up frequently when Windows XP after a Replacement Motherboard a customer brings in a blown PC I usually copy his data off reload XP then bring his data back but that means reloading all his applications Hope this made sense and can get a answer Surely there is a better way Thanks nbsp

Hello everyone,
I have a query regarding win 7 laptop which is bitlocker encrypted using TPM+PIN authentication and both TPM owner hash and Recovery password are backed up to AD.
if i replace a new motherboard on the laptop it will pop up the recovery password screen and then i can login and boot up to desktop.
for the new motherboard my TPM is off and so to avoid the recovery screen coming up every time, I will have to turn on TPM and take the ownership.The GPO's to backup TPM are already applied on the machine(turn on tpm backup to AD is enabled)
Can some one helpw me understand what will happen when i turn on TPM for new motherboard(will it overwrite the older TPM owner password hash already present in AD?).also are any additional steps required when i replace the motherboard?
Dear All - Please help me- Thanks in advance!!

A:BitLocker - New motherboard replacement

After you replaced the motherboard, you need to repopulate the TPM with new information regarding the encryption of the hard disk.
I use these commands to repopulate the information in the TPM (without PIN):
manage-bde –delete -protectors C: -type TPM
manage-bde –protectors –add C: -tpmRay - Author of Windows 7 for XP Professionals

I will soon replace my faulty ASUS p8p67 pro mother board with its exact replacement (except for the new on board revision). Has anyone else already done this? If so did you have to do a Win 7 clean install? I am hoping that I will not have to that.

A:ASUS motherboard replacement

I haven't done it, but there should be no need to re-install Windows.

You may have to activate it again, though. Changing the MAC address of the onboard network controller may be enough to trigger that, neglecting any other changes.
