In the list under the heading Motherboards, it lists that the motherboard is a
102007 - Intel (Ausberg) No CPU Motherboard R0

[ It was made by Intel for Gateway. Gateway part number 102007.
Ausberg is the code name Intel gave the motherboard.
No CPU means this part number is for a bare motherboard, with No Processor.

R zero means there is no Revision. Revision = 0
No revised versions of the motherboard ]

Gateway does not show Product Views of the motherboard.
Here is a Top View of the motherboard,


1) Let's start with the most difficult part. The Front Panel header.

The plastic front of the computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

The Front Panel header is marked by an S in the photo.
White small header on the bottom/right edge of the motherboard, with two rows of pins.

This is the Front Panel header pinout,


A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the Harddrive activity LED light. Usually Red in color.
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire ( + )
If the LED light is dim when operating, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch. IF, a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive wire ( + )
If the LED light is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.
(Computer unplugged from power, Anti-Static Precautions observed )

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch

F) There is NO Pin 10

2) Power Supply power cables to motherboard;

A) 24-pin ATX main power cable.
General example of this power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,


Plugs into J in the photo.
Note the Lock. In the photo to the far right, it is the black rectangular piece of plastic in the middle. (It is vertical)

The Lock operates like a see-saw on a playground. The Lock is hinged in the middle. The top part nearest the wires coming in, is squeezed in to release the hooked end at the bottom, away from the Tab on the motherboard female connector.

When installing this power cable, ensure that the hooked end of the Lock, is over the Tab on the female connector on the motherboard. This ensures that the power cable is plugged in tight, and correctly.

This also applies to the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

General example,


{Note this power cable has two Yellow wires, and two Black wires.
Yellow wires are 12 Volt wires. Black wires are Ground wires }

This power cable plugs into C in the photo.

The other power cables from the Power Supply, plug into the various peripheral components inside the computer.
