Motherboard replacement for T2042

My eMachines T2042 had it's power supply unit go and it apparently fried the motherboard because even with a brand new power supply the power button just flashes and so does the HD LED. I have read various forums of motherboards going when the PSU goes with eMachines.

Now I am trying to replace the motherboard that was in it Imperal GVLE but I am having such slight problems.

I want to replace it with a AsRock P4VM890 manual http://download.asrock.com/manual/P4VM890.pdf

and it appears to have everything I need and I can get it at a reasonable price at 3btech.net.

The only problem I am having is, I am confused about the front panel connections.

USB seems to have a 10 pin connector with one pin blocked or not there (not sure what they call that), and Headphone port has a 3 pin connector with notch and Mic port has a 4 pin connector with 1 pin missing.

I think I found the USB connector on that board but I am not seeing where the audio jacks go.

My other option is this board, http://europe.asrock.com/manual/P4i65G.pdf but I don't like how it claims no RAID and Hot Swap but is basically the same price.

If I have to I can live without the two audio jacks up front since I rarely use them but I would like to hook the system back up the way it was completely.


EDIT: I saw in one thread a person recommend this board http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/content.php?S_ID=24... manual ftp://ftp.biostar-usa.com/manuals/P4M80-M4/P4M80M4manua...

Though this board I can't really seem to find anywhere and if I do it's a fair amount more even used while the others are refurbished with 90 day warranties, and I don't see this board giving me anything else except maybe the front headphone connector but it still seems to miss the mic jack.

The standard nine pin case connector should work on both of the asrock boards; the panel header pins are pretty standardized as far as led connections and power switch pin positions. Draw a diagram as you disconnect your old board; if your cpu has fried, you can get them cheap at starmicro.

Ok, so does it look like, those two other connectors coming from the panel the two 3 pins will be able to be connected? I can't find them anywhere on the boards.

Figures the better of the motherboards the one with RAID has vanished off the website, so I gotta maybe look for something else. Uhhh, what fun, it was there when I wrote the OP.
