    I replaced a eMachine mobo (I believe the model is Trigem Imperial -G),
    for a friend. She purchased the used mobo from a computer repair shop
    after her original mobo went bad. The PC boots up/runs no problems. The
    computer repair store had no literature so I guessed at connecting the wires
    that go to the front of the tower. Now the only way to power off the PC, is to
    shut off the power supply itself. I could not find any info on the Web, except
    the jumpers for CMOS, Password, etc. Managed to talk an eMachine support
    rep, no help. What I need is a diagram/pinout how to connect the wires
    going to the front of the tower(LEDs for power, disk drive, power switch etc.)

    So there is no possible way to find the manual online for your mobo?

    I have the manuals for the Trigem G, GL, and GV and all they show you is where the front panel header is located, they don't provide a pinout.

    If the front panel header is a 9 pin header, it is most likely they used a standard Intel front panel header pinout.

    The store where the mobo was purchased does not have the manual.
    I could not find anything on the Web. I even talked to a eMachine employee,
    no help.

    Did you read post #4? I have the manuals, but there are NO front panel pinouts in the manuals.

    rickelme, If the front panel header is a 9 pin header it most likely uses the Intel standard front panel pinout. If you can check the header and verify that it is 9 pin, I can post the pinout.

    I finally now have some time to attempt the wiring again. I never removed the wires
    from the tower front panel. I'm just trying to connect correctly on the emobo. The mobo does not have a nice clear model# printed on it. Running Everest and Belarc I believe the mobo is a 570 Trigem Imperial-GL_VE.
