SWAP DELL DIMENSION 4550 MOTHERBRD IN AFTER MARKET CHASSIS
\015 NEED A PIN-OUT (DETAILS) OF FRONT PANEL CONNECTOR J9H2 TO CONNECT TO CHASSIS: POWER, RESET, HDD LED\015
If you look closely at the motherboard the pinouts are there. I have always had to play with the reset and power pins and by this I mean that if they don't work right then turn them around. I have also had to put the cable marked reset on the pins marked power. The others are marked (hdd led). I have found this to be true with all dell machines.

I have a Foxconn LS-36 Revision A01 Motherboard. The Model number is: CN-OGC375-13740-5AG-00CU. (The first O might be a 0). At any rate this MB is on a Dell XPS 600 unit, which has died and I have a Raid 0 Array in there as my Data Drive. My question is, what chipset does this unit use, so I can find a compatible MB to replace it with. I'd like to keep my RAID 0 Array and I'm fairly sure if I go with a different chipset, the RAID 0 Array won't get reconstructed

I have two dell computers, dell dimension 4600, and dell optiplex gx270 smf. I've checked into upgrading the memory on the gx270. It says that it uses the same memory configuration as the dimension 4600. I tried to swap out some of the memory from the 4600 (2 512 mb ddr 3200 400mz) to the gx270 and it started beeping and would not boot up. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
