Re: Motherboard Installation?
lol... ok, quick tutorial. first, powersupply. power goes to a 16-pin connector on your motherboard. it's the biggest connector coming out of your powersupply. it has a little catch on it, just have to pull it back and pull out the plug. next, pull out any cards installed on your mobo. ok, so we have the psu disconnected, and cards out. your hard drive uses the flat grey cable, the IDE cable. just disconnect it from the mobo, it pulls right on out. same with from your CD-ROM and your floppy. the trickiest part now comes into play. there are some small cables from the front of your computer to the motherboard. these connect your front USB, audio, and power LED HDD LED, PWR button and Reset BTN. disconnecting them is easy, but putting them on again takes some finesse. you have to look on your new mobo. normally these connectors are found at the bottom of the mobo. if you look carefully, you will see they are actually listed. the wires are also listed. just match the pins to the connectors. make sure you have a cpu in your new board. reconnect the IDE's and power, and you are done!
