Answers :

Power On switch (Button)? Restart switch? Speakers?Wires came loose from the motherboard?
Should like you to see if you can trace the wires back to the front panel, (Where the Power On button is located
Granted, this may be a little tough in some instances. If you can, ease the front panel loose, and you'll get a better view.

There are usually four to six tabs, coming from the front panel. Two or three on each side. Usually one at the top, one in the middle, and one at the bottom. (On the three tabs per side model) These plastic tabs are eased towards the inside direction of the computer. You will observe that they have a 'tang' on them. You just ease the tab to the inside, until this tang clears the hole, then ease the front panel forward a little. Once you get one tab started, then go to the next tab up, or down. Depends on if you start at the top, or bottom.

This way you can see if this Black and White wire goes to the Power On switch, the Reset switch, (IF used), one of the speaker wires, or one of the LED lamps in the front panel. (Power On, or Harddrive activity lamp)

I also need the model name and model number.
Example: T1090

I have to find an illustration of the motherboard (Try), and be able to tell you, what pins on the motherboard those wires go to.

Now, up front, finding the motherboard specifications for an eMachine computer, is a little tough. Also, there were three different motherboard manufacturers. Makes it a lot of fun.(?)

However, not to despair. I'm pretty decent at finding this info. I have worked on a lot of eMachines, and have a few around my shop right now. Maybe I (we'll) get lucky.
