T2682 Led/Switchboard Wires

Q: T2682 Led/Switchboard Wires

Howdy Everyone! Can anyone help me with the pwr led, pwr s/w and Hdd Led wires location. I was checking friends computer which I know the psu is dead and pretty sure motherboard is too. I opened the case just checking all wires and connections. I pulled the wires coming from switch on mobo, I thought it was one plug well I pulled it was three seperated wires pwr led pwr s/w and hdd led. Now not sure how they go back poor me. on board where the wires goes there are lots of pins only a couple are used for the power switch and led. A picture or text would be a big help. Or does it matter where they go? Thanks and Have a great day. Todd

Preferred Solution: T2682 Led/Switchboard Wires

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: T2682 Led/Switchboard Wires

Usually the pins are labeled on the board itself but it can be a little tricky to get them working correctly sometimes. The motherboard's manual should have a diagram of how the wires go. You can probably go to the manufacturer's site and download a .pdf of the manual. I'm guessing that's an eMachines system? They usually have their manuals available for download, try here:

I have a Emachine T2682 and all has worked fine until today. I turned it on and the lights came on and the Emachine logo came up on the screen then it go's blank and stays that way. I have tried to reboot a few time and the same thing happens. Where should I start to look? Pulled the HD and checked it on another computer and it works great. Could this be a power supply problem?

Thank you

contact emachines. Look at the motherboard you currently have along with any documentation.

don't bother replacing the motherboard until you replace the PSU.

I have an emachine T2682 that is 2 years old and is completely dead. When I press the power button, nothing happens. No lights, no fan, no noises of any kind. From what I?ve read on this site and others, I?m guessing it?s the power supply and motherboard, but is it worth fixing?

It is no longer under warranty, so I would not want to waste the time or money sending it back to emachines for repair. Unfortunately, I would not be able to replace them myself. I should be able to find someone local to fix it, but is it worth the investment?

A:My emachine T2682 is dead...

Hard to say. If all you do is browse the internet/email etc., then the specs of your system are still good enough to serve you well. Power supplies are quite cheap these days (you can get a high quality one for $40 for example) and easy to replace.

But if you are going to pay someone to do it for you, then that price easily jumps up to $100, and the problem may very well also be a dead motherboard.

How is your savings account doing? If you are thinking of getting a new computer sometime soon anyways, it sounds like now may be the right timing.

If you are on a tight budget, then bite the bullet and bring it into the shop. I'd pay them to simply do a diagnostic and find out if it is the power supply, or the PSU or both, then make your decision based on that.

A 2.6Ghz celeron and 256mb of ram is all you need for internet browsing, and your system (in that regard) is far from being out of date.

On the other hand, if you play any games.... now that's a WHOLE other thing

That's my two yen.

Hi everyone

I was curious if I should xpect problems about upgrading my one and only PC(eMachines T2682) Here are the specs I hope to get after my upgrade:

Processor: Intel Celeron 2.60 GHz
Motherboard: Intel 845GV
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon 9200 PCI
Memory: 768 MB
Sound Card: Realtek AC'97 Audio

Will installing the graphics card drivers result in a system wiping where I lose all my game saves and things like that? Thank you for replying

A:Upgrading eMachines T2682

It shouldn't cause anything like that to happen.
You'd just put the card in an open pci slot, plug your monitor into the new card, boot up, then (hopefully) you'll be able to see your windows desktop, if you can, then you'd go ahead and install the graphics drivers either off the cd with the card, or off of ati's website.

This is my first problem post. My eMachine T2682 now freezes up. The screen locks up. I have to power off manually and re-boot.

For years the pc hasn't powered off. It will shut down win xp, but then the yellow hard drive light comes on and just stays on. No one has ever been able to tell me how to fix it.

I replaced the psu years ago thinking it would cure this problem. It didn't.

My new problem is that when I power on, sometimes the pc remains dead. I click power on and off a few times, and it comes on.

Then I do multiple boot attempts until it quits freezing up during boot. This was my old new problem of a couple of months ago. Very frustrating.

The pc freezes up a every now and then once booted and warmed up. But, I can usually stay running once up and going a while.

I am about to order a new psu from directron. Let them pick a quality unit for the right price. I am price sensitive. I may wait and read some replies, first.

I don't do much on this pc. I surf, read newspapers, stream tunes, email. It is a home unit. Just me. So no games. No gamers.

I added a gig of ram from crucial a year or more ago. It didn't really speed anything up that i noticed. i had expected a miracle. I can stream a movie from Netflix and multiple audio w/ no problems. I have broadband from YahooATT.

I am satisfied. This pc does all I require. But it has boot and powerdown problems.

First off am I doing the right thing by changing from the onboard graphics (intel extreme graphics AGP) to an ATI Raedon 256 MB DDR PCI Card? I am assuming that by putting 256 MB card in a PCI slot it will increase the overall performance of not only the graphics but the entire computer as well. That being said how do I shut down the current graphics card and drivers? Do I even need to? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx, xroads

A:Help with new graphics card for emachines T2682

You are doing the right thing by using a graphics card over the built-in controller on the motherboard. You should notice an overall speed up of your computer (though it may not be that much). I'm assuming that the card you got came with instructions, if not, here is a general way to install a graphics card.

1. Install the drivers for the card (without the card in the computer yet)
2. Turn off computer and install card
3. Plug monitor into card and turn on the computer
4. If you can see and use Windows, it worked! If not, plug your monitor into the orignal card, go to Display Properties, then Settings, open the pull-down menu and select your new card. Hit Apply. The screen should go black. You now have about ten seconds to plug the monitor into the new card and hit okay in the confirmation box. If you don't do this, the computer will switch back to the old graphics card.

You can safely disable the Intel card once you've made sure your new card is working.

Hope this helps! :grinthumb

I created a switchboard in a database that has multiple tables and forms. I saw it, changed it, worked with it, etc. Then it disappeared. It does not show up in the Forms list, although there is still a Switchboard Items table in the Tables list. I created a new Switchboard, but it also does not show up in the Forms list.

Where are these invisible switchboards?

Any help will, as usual, be much appreciated.

A:Invisible Switchboard!

To see if they are being hidden, go to tools, options, view and check the box by hidden objects. If that is all that has happened, you can change the properties of the the switchboard from hidden. On the other hand, if they aren't there, well, I suspect they are being deleted somehow.

A:Access Help (switchboard)

bwags, welcome to the forum.
I am not sure why you would want to view the Tables, as normally users should only enter data in a Form where the entry can be controlled and unlike forms tables do not respond to VBA or macros that buttons use. It may be different in Access 2007, but I doubt it.

We have our Access database all ready to go for member tracking. However, for the people going into the database just to track or enter information, but NOT to futz with the database design at all-- we want to be able to make it so when they go to open the database they will just see the switchboard-- none of the toolbars or tables in left navigation pane. Is there a somewhat easy way to do this?


A:ACCESS Switchboard

First you will need to split the database into a front end and back end.

Splitting your Access database into application and data

In the deployed front end, set the start up optiopns to show the switch board and hide the navigation pane.

A simple way to lock down the front end is to first compile it to a .accde. Onace a .accde rename the database to a .accdr from a .accde. This will tell Access to open the database in runtime mode. In runtime mode the navigation pane is NOT available

The ms access swichboard is working in good fashion. What I need to do is make it more flexible while opening and closing other objects in MS access like forms and reports. the switchboard form holds up upon the start of access and still shows up after openning a report for example untill I close it. I need to minimize it and dealing with access freely then bach again to the switchboard if I want. Thanks in advance

A:MS access switchboard

It will depend on whether the Switchboard is using VBA or Macros for the "Opening" events on which method you use, but in both cases you should be able to Minimize it when each item is opened.

Does anyone know how to allow a switchboard to have more than 8 buttons? is there a line of code you can enter?

A:Access Switchboard

Not sure I understand what you mean. A "switchboard" is just a kind of form, as far as I know... Are you talking about using an Access wizard to create it? That may limit you to 8...

Let's say you have a form called frmSwitchboard. Open it in design view, add a command button to the form. Then you can create a macro named FireMySwitchboardButton, with say an OpenForm action, an OpenReport action, or whatever. Or if you so desire, write some code instead.

But as far as I know, the only limit to the number of buttons on a form is the number you want to put on.

From Access Help -
Create, customize, and delete a switchboard form
You create, customize, and delete a switchboard by using the Switchboard Manager.
Click the new switchboard, and then click Edit.
Click New.
Type the text for the first switchboard item in the Text box, and then click a command in the Command box. For example, type View Recording Artists, and then click Open Form In Edit Mode in the Command box.
Note To create a switchboard that branches to other switchboards, click the Go To Switchboard command in the Command box, and then specify the switchboard you want to go to.

Depending on which command you click, Microsoft Access displays another box below the Command box. Click an item in this box, if necessary. For example, if you clicked Open Form In Edit Mode in step 8, click the name of the form you want to open in the Form box, such as Recording Artists, and then click OK.
Repeat steps 7 through 9 until you've added all the items to the switchboard.
Note To edit or delete an item, click the item in the Items On This Switchboard box, and then click Edit or Delete. If you want to rearrange items, click the item in the box, and then click Move Up or Move Down.

When you've finished creating the switchboard, click Close.

Using Access 2000. Designed a small application with a switchboard that opens when the app is opened and native access automatically minimizes. Two of the choices on the switchboard open reports. To maximize the report size, I have them maximize on open via a Maximize macro event.

But here's the problem. When the reports are closed, the switchboard has also maximized -- full screen. To put it back the way it should be, the user has to click the "Restore down" window control, a pain in the a&&. So I have 2 questions: (1) Why does maximizing a report also maximize the switchboard, and, of course, (2) is there any way to prevent the switchboard from maximizing? I tried setting the "Auto resize" property to 'No', but that does nothing.

A:Solved: Why does switchboard maximize?

Immediately after putting this thread on the forum, a thought popped into my head. One of the properties for any form is Min Max Buttons. The choices are to have either, both or none. Having used MS products long enough to know that many labels in their software don't mean what they say, I wondered what would happen if I set that property to 'None'. I.e., the property didn't just show or not show the Min Max buttons, but would also disable the ability of the form to maximize when the reports maximized.

Bingo!! That's exactly what that property does. I apologize for adding to the clutter on this board and will mark the thread solved.
