Dell Studio XPS 8000 motherboard replacement and power button jumper cable schematics (which wires are for what) and compatible replacement motherboards

Q: Dell Studio XPS 8000 motherboard replacement and power button jumper cable schematics (which wires are for what) and compatible replacement motherboards

(Just posting this here so people in the future can find it.) I replaced my motherboard and just wanted to leave this here for future reference to some poor soul who has to do the same.
If you replace the motherboard on your Dell Studio XPS 8000, (service tag 3L8DHK1) and you need a new motherboard you can use an INTEL DQ57TM, it's compatible and I did a successful transplant. Your processor is an INTEL Core-i5 750 CPU 2.67GHZ it uses a SOCKET LGA1156. It uses DDR3 memory.
Once you take out your old motherboard and disconnect all those usb and audio wires and the power button wires. To hook up your USB front jacks, audio jacks etc.... here's which blocks go where:
Wires from the audio jacks and usb ports go into these colored block connectors, and those connectors get plugged into those little rows of pins/jumpers called Internal Headers. Every motherboard manual tells you about them. Grab the manual for your new motherboard and it'll tell you where your audio1, usb1, usb2, usb3, usb4 Header connectors are they look like 2 rows and 5 collumns of short little pins. (They almost always have 1 or 2 pins missing on purpose.)
the wires leading to a YELLOW BLOCK gets plugged into the audio1 header on your new motherboard, it's for audio jacks on top of the computer
wires with the WHITE BLOCK gets plugged into the usb3 headers on your motherboard (they are for the usb jacks on the very top of the computer tower)
wires with the GREEN BLOCK gets plugged into usb2 headers/jumper connectors (these are the 2 usb ports on the front of the computer beneath the cd rom drive)
wires with the PURPLE BLOCK gets plugged into usb1 headers/jumper connectors, i think it was for the sd memory card slot.
And now the hard part: the Power Button, Power LED light, and Hard Drive LED light are all colored wires bundled together leading to a black block that plugs into the FP1 jumper header. But it's a different order so you'll have to readjust the wires on the black block before you plug it into the headers.
Get a tiny little flat head screwdriver and carefully lift up all the little clips to undo the colored wires from that block and free the wires. Now put the wires back like this:
HD LED Light = Yellow + Black wires
POWER ON LIGHT = White + Red wires
POWER BUTTON = Brown & Blue wires (with an additional blue wire that offshoots, it should be plugged into a little jumper usually called "Alternatte Front Panel Power LED" with 1 little piin for (-) and 1 little pin for (+). Put that extra blue wire offshoot on the (-) minus jumper.
(If you don't plug it into anything the power button led will shine yellow, making you think something's wrong. )

ok that's all. bye bye.

I have a Dell Studio 1555, pretty old at this point, but it died (i.e. the powerbutton got disconnected) suddenly and I'd like to get my files off it.  I did a little research, but it seems like for the 1555 model, the wifi and powerbutton are not bundled together, see http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/studio1555/en/SM/display.htm#wp1179838
Any other ideas?  I like the rewiring idea, seems to need the least soldering, is there a way to change some other button to be the powerbutton?

Not a question, just an informational post. Recently bought a Dell Studio XPS 8000 from Best Buy. Love the computer, works great, but I've already added a hard drive, will be adding a Blu-Ray burner as a second optical and may add a TV tuner card. The stock 350W supply just seemed a bit puny so I swapped in a Corsair TX750W supply. It works fine.

I know that's overkill but Fry's had it on sale for $79.00, 30 bucks cheaper than the 650 I was going to buy.

Issues:
The stock power supply is 140mm deep, this one is 160mm deep. Made for a tight fit but nothing had to be forced. Don't go larger than that though.
The Corsair has (4) PCI-E connectors, only one is needed in this PC so you have three extra cables to stash (none of the cables are detachable).
There are two SATA cables with four connectors each. Two hard drives and two optical drives can be run off one cable. Sweet. Leaves an extra cable to stash.
There are eight old style 4-pin connectors on two cables, so two more cables to stash.
The 8-pin EPS connector splits in two so it works for the 4-pin EPS on the mainboard.

Very quiet, I like it, but if I had to do it over again I'd likely go with something with detachable cables. The bundle of unused cables is large but fits in the space available where horizontally-mounted hard drives would normally be (the Dell has them mounted vertically).

I usually leave my machines on permanently as they are set to download and install updates overnight, only switching off the monitors. Went on holiday and turned everything off but on my return the XPS would not respond to the power button - green light on the PS is on, but dim, amber light on the motherboard is on. Reseated the power cables, no change. Jumpered the green cable on the 24pin connector to a black one - PS fan starts up, but still no boot up. I suspect the PS is faulty but I am having difficulty locating an exact replacement - proprietary ones do not seem to have all the necessary cables.

I replaced the power supply and now when I push the power button to turn the computer on,  all of the fans will turn on for about a half of a second as the switch makes contact, but then turn off and the computer doesn't boot. I suspect the power button is bad as well. It's like it starts to make contact when I push it, and then nothing.  Any suggestions on what may be the problem?

My fiancee and I currently have the Dell Inspiron 17R SE laptop with the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230, and it has worked for a few months now up until the Monday of last week. While on the internet, my fiancee was noticing her wifi speed slowed down to a crawl. She performed speed tests to find out that the speed was not as high as it used to be. She updated drivers for the computer, as well as removed any clutter that would cause the wifi slowdown.
When we tried many options, they did not give us the results that we were looking for. Finally, after some process of elimination, we concluded that our wifi card needed a replacement. I don't want to get any old card to use and then find out that it doesn't fit or is not compatible with Windows 10. I have been taking my time to research what could be compatible to improve my laptop computer, but I have been coming up short.

What I would like to know is what wifi cards are compatible with our Dell computer so that we can get this replaced as soon as possible without having to pay out the nose for unneeded computer repair?

Swapped out the older ASUS motherboard when it apparently died - was also told that by
a repair shop.

A sympathetic person donated his "old" ASUS P5WD2 complete with PCU and RAM and heat sink for the cost of shipping, so went to work. He said he had upgraded to a more powerful setup
and that this all worked when he removed it and stored it.

I had upgraded the power supply a few years ago to an ULTRA d1106 550 watt when I added a couple drives, and it always seemed to work.

I printed out the instruction manual for the P5 and, not having done a lot of work on PC's for some years other than adding drives, etc, followed it very closely. The plugs from the case were labeled so I'm pretty sure I got the power & interrupt switches, case lights and fans, etc, all hooked up right. Also the main cable to the board from the power supply, and a secondary power supply cable to a socket near the CPU. Also got the C drive (EIDE) and the 2 additional SATA drives hooked up to the board and to the power supply, and believe I have them right. Maybe a question on the C drive. There a set of sockets for EIDE drives, incl one designated as a Primary, and another Primary socket for an IDE drive. If I recall, my C drive is an EIDE so I should have connected to the right socket on the board. Even if not, shouldn't the CPU, and
case lights and fans power up?

When the big moment came to hit the switch it was an anti-climax. Nothing happened.

Hey, About 5 months ago i decided to swap my HDD for an SSD, for some extra speed. However, when opening the laptop i broke the ribbon cable off the power button board. In the last 5 months i tried buying a replacement from ebay. I have bought boards from 3 different sellers, and not one of them worked. They all showed the same behavior; plugging and then unplugging the cable from the motherboard started the computer, and as soon as i put the cable back in, the computer shut down. I used a multimeter to see what was going on, and it turns out the new boards did not switch anything, whereas the original board switched when the button was pushed (of course). Is there a way i can purchase an official replacement?  Thanks in advance!

I am guessing that the motherbard has been damaged with a power surge since my other laptop died and has the same exact problem.

A:Dell XPS 13 L322X i5 need motherboard replacement in europe

You'll have to search for a local source.  The CPU is soldered to the mainboard, so it gets replaced with the board itself.
You can replace an i5 board with an i7.  The only caveat would be that systems having Intel-only GPUs generally use a different heatsink than those with hybrid Intel-nVidia or Intel-AMD GPUs.

Full HD 1920x1080 LED-Backlit Display Laptop w/HDMI Port, E-SATA, USB 3.0,

This is what I customized it at

Memory ( 32GB [8GB x 4] 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM [Laptop Memory] - Corsair or Major Brand

My question is the difference between DDR3-1333 memory and DDR3-1600. Then the harddrive, I can get a 1 TB 1 5400rpm Serial-ATA Super Slim Laptop Hard Drive, or pay $400 extra and get a 480 GB Kingston HyperX 3K SSD Single Drive.

I'm not planning on gaming with this laptop, I just want something that can handle a lot and last a while. This laptop is priced at $1900 through IBuyPower.

Am I avoiding the motherboards that have the Nvida chips in them? I was told thats why my motherboard failed was because of that chip.
 

A:Dell motherboard failed, replacement laptop

RAM speed is dependant upon the motherboard chipset and cpu. But you aren't likely to notice a difference between those two.

HDD/SSD - depends on how much space that you need for storage. If the laptop supports two HDD's, then simply get a smaller SSD for the primary drive and you can add a second HDD later. Otherwise, for the cost involved, I would simply keep the standard HDD.

There is no reason to avoid nVidia.

I'm trying to replace the motherboard in my AIO, Dell Inspiron One 2020. Since I've never done anything like this before, I'm following the User Manual exactly. I just ran into my first problem. The manual simply says "Disconnect all the cables from their connectors on the system board.' Well, that's not been as easy for me as it sounds. I'm hoping someone with prior experience will reply with a tip, trick or suggestion. My problem is I can't get the cables out of the connectors on the motherboard. With the exception of the hard drive and optical drive cables, there's not much to get hold of. I don't see any mechanical catches that need to be released. I assume I should not pull on the wires, just the male connector that is attached to the wires. I assume I should not use tools, but I'm considering the use of needle nose pliers, unless someone can offer me a better suggestion. I hope there's someone out there whose done this before and can offer helpful suggestions. Thanks.

You just need to sometimes be a little forceful if the cable is stuck. Maybe squeeze the sides of the cable connector when pulling up.

Hello my Dell Inspiron's GPU is failing, resulting in digital vertical stripes on screen and freezing. This is the second time it happens. I resolved it for a few months with a simple baking. However. I wouldn't like to repeat this many times and I am looking to buy a new motherboard. However I don't find anything on the internet about 0YXXJJ. I would like to get the same one. If not, please advice which one should I buy? I have Dell Inspiron n5010 currently running Intel Core i5 480M @ 2.67GHz, Arrandale 32nm Technology
Current Motherboard spec:
Manufacturer Dell Inc.Model 0YXXJJ (CPU 1)Version A10Chipset Vendor IntelChipset Model Havendale/Clarkdale Host BridgeChipset Revision 18Southbridge Vendor IntelSouthbridge Model HM57Southbridge Revision 06 BIOS Brand Dell Inc. Version A10 Date 11/17/2010 PCI Data Slot PCI-E Slot Type PCI-E Slot Usage In Use Data lanes x16 Slot Designation J6B2 Characteristics 3.3V, Shared, PME Slot Number 0 Slot PCI-E Slot Type PCI-E Slot Usage In Use Data lanes x1 Slot Designation J6B1 Characteristics 3.3V, Shared, PME Slot Number 1

A:How can I find Dell Inspiron n5010 motherboard replacement?

YXXJJ is the plastic chassis, not the board.  In all honesty, you'd likely be better off replacing the system than repairing this one - it's too old.
If you want to replace the board,  this one should be a drop-in for yours

Hi, I've just noticed today that the power button is blinking constantly while I'm using my laptop. It never did this before as it was just a static light. When I put the computer to sleep it pulsates as normal. Does anyone know what I'm talking about and can they offer any advice as to why this is happening - is this potentially a problem?

Thanks in advance.

A:Power button cable doesn't fit on new motherboard

Are you saying that the plastic connector on the end of the Power Button cable is too big to fit on the motherboard block?
Or that the cable is too short?

i am replacing hard drive, found a pata 160gb drive and formatted it. i powered it on and wanted to set the boot to cd. it is just freezing on the first page of the setup and will not permit entries or move to other pages. it is not recognizing the existence of the drive either. i can think maybe does not like pata drive (enhanced ATA 100) or maybe drive size is too big. any ideas to figure out problem(s)?

Dear Experts,
I have a 6 year old Dell Inspiron 5010 laptop. 3 months back I had a blue screen error and then I took it to an authorized Dell Service Center. They mentioned that there's a problem with the existing motherboard with inbuilt Graphics card which caused this issue & that the motherboard needs to be replaced. I paid the money to get this replaced. Problems started soon after.
Initially the laptop power on button wouldn't start the laptop unles pressed 2-3 times. The start LED light would blink and then turn off on pressing power on button. After 3-4 days usage it became really difficult to start the laptop. Sometimes I had to press 25-30 times before it would start. Even if power cord is connected, same issue happened. Battery was always full (I never had any battery issues). After2-3 trips to the service centre, still it didn't help. Everytime they managed to start it somehow and then it worked in front of me. I used to bring it home and then problem recurred.
Funny thing is once it started there was never any issues and laptop worked fine. Even restart never had any issues.Only power on from a switched off state had this issue.Later on I found an interesting workaround if it didn't start. I used to power on the mains and then press power on button once. Then leave the laptop as it is. Every 5-6 seconds automatically the start button LED would glow and go off. After 15-20 minutes the laptop would start automatically and then it worked fine agai... Read more

I recently had to replace my motherboard on my Dell Inspiron 7520 laptop, due to the old motherboard failing to even power up. After fitting the new motherboard (taking care not to damage the internal components), I restarted the laptop, only to discover that the main display wasn't working correctly. It was only showing a blank white screen. I connected the laptop to an external VGA display, and managed to get it to project through the display. I used that to flash the new BIOS. However, I couldn't work out what was wrong with the display, as the video card and software seemed to be working, and the display was responding to brightness and dimming commands from the keyboard. I decided to reboot into safe mode using msconfig, but now the laptop still has the white screen issue and won't project to an external screen either, even once I've pressed F2 to enter BIOS. I've tried the power on + D to try to run a screen test, but nothing happens. It only turns on for a few seconds, then powers down again. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Please guide what to do so that wifi will start working.
 

A:Wifi link not coming after motherboard replacement dell 1464

I'm assuming you have a Dell Inspiron 1464 laptop which originally came with Windows XP or Windows Vista 32-bit.
What's the 7-character "service tag" number on it?

Who replaced the motherboard in that laptop?
Who reinstalled the Windows operating system in it?
Have the drivers for its devices(chipset, graphic, audio, ethernet, wireless, etc.) been installed?
