Elitegroup Motherboard Help

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, my $0 budget computer is almost complete, I stripped everything down and painted it a nice dark marble-ish blue. The only problem is I can't remember how to hook up the power/reset/led connections on the motherboard. I had it written down but I can't seem to find the notepad it was written on. I don't have the manual that came with it. Could anyone link me to a wiring diagram or something similar. My motherboard is an Elitegroup K7S5A AMD motherboard. [thats all i know about it], any help is much appreciated.

Well, did some guessing, IT WORKS!... Except, now nothing will show up on the monitor. Tried 2 video cards, 2 monitors, a TV, i don't think its the AGP slot because well it worked before we tore it down, it was kept in great condition and the fans on both graphics cards ran. Ones a MX440 the other is a FX5200, the FX5200 was in the computer before we tore it down for paint. I don't understand why its not showing up, I even marked everything to make sure it was put back right.

did you plug in the supplemental connector for the cpu power (small square plug with 4 'prongs') usually plugs in near the cpu.

Well, Did some elimination and found out it was a bad stick of RAM, but it wasn't telling me (No warning beeps). Back to my original problem, I can't log onto my cousin's account! My friend should be helping me with that though.

P.S. That is a sick Lego case! I Have a 3ftx1.5ftx2ft tub FULL of legos dating back to when they first came out. I'm surprised I didn't think of it.

Would it be possible to link 2 computers together through a LAN cable, and log onto the computer with a program through the one computer change the password, and be able to go to the other one and log on with the new password?

OK.. So,

I installed a 30 day free trial of XP from Dell on my other hard drive (i have 2, 60g and 160g). I'm wondering if there's anyway I can change his password while logged onto the other OS?

Yeah there are a few utilities which allow that.

One way of doing it though, the easy way, is to go into safe mode and see if the 'Administrator' account even has a pwd on it. If it DOESNT have a pwd on it, just login using that account, and go into cmd and use the NET commands to change the pwd. I did it on my skype server when I forgot the user pw.. Thank god I was too lazy to secure the admin account
