Answers :

Ah, My Bad, big_dude2010, perfectly understandable about the budget thing. The world is in an economic crisis right now.

As for reattaching the Card Reader cable, can't help you.

OH, I'm just PLAYIN'!


Before we go ANY further:

1) Computer off, and unplugged from power.

Unplug the power cable FROM the surge protector, and NOT plugged into the surge protector, and take it out of the back of the Power Supply.

With the power cable plugged into the surge protector, and unplugging it out of the Power Supply, you could create a voltage spike.

Result can burn out the Power Supply, and may go on to burn out the Processor, Motherboard, Ram Memory, and a graphics card. (IF used)

Many have stated, that they do this all the time. Eventually, they come back to state they fried out their power supply, and/or motherboard, and so on.

2) Computer unplugged from power, computer case open, TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case to relieve your body of Static electricity.

Static can fry out, (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside your computer.
(For this reason also work on a table. If you have a carpet floor, refrain from swinging your feet back, and forth.
If you get up, walk away, then return, TOUCH the metal frame again)

If you already know the above, please disregard.

The Card Reader cable has a white sheath, and is approximately as thick as a No.2 pencil.

It should have 8 wires in it.
Orange, Yellow, Blue, Brown, Red, White, Green, and Black.

It will have a white rectangular connector on one end, that has 10 socket holes. 2 rows of 5 holes.
Only 8 socket holes are used.

The other end of the cable should have a Black connector. It also has 10 socket holes. 2 rows of 5 holes. This connector plugs into the circuit board of the Card Reader.

The White connector end plugs into the motherboard. It plugs into the Front USB 1 header on the motherboard.

(Connector on a motherboard is referred to as a Header)

Orienting the motherboard, so we are both looking at it in the same direction.
Processor to the top. Ram Memory slots to the right.
There are 3 white PCI slots down towards the bottom.

The white PCI slot that is closest to the edge of the motherboard, is PCI3. (PCI 3)

Down below the PCI 3 slot is a blue header. NOT the one you want.
That's for the audio ports in the front of the computer. (Front Panel)

To the right of the blue header, is a white header. This is the one you want. Front USB1. (The Front USB1 header, is below the Right/Bottom corner of the PCI 3 slot)

Note that there are 5 pins going along the top of the Front USB 1 header, and 4 pins going along the bottom.

The missing pin, or blank spot, helps you to orient the white connector of the card reader cable.

The card reader cable's white connector also has a missing socket hole, or blank spot.

There is No slot on the header for the motherboard, and No locating lug on the Card Reader cable's, white connector.

Line the card reader cable connector's blank spot, up with the blank spot on the Front USB1 header.

This is HP Support, and the Motherboard Specifications page, for the Compaq Presario SR1303WM Desktop PC,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00069442&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=447312

Scroll down the page about halfway, and you'll see an illustration of your motherboard.

(To enlarge it for better viewing, you can right-click right on it, then in the drop down menu, left-click on - Save As
Put this in your My Pictures folder.

Then go to My Pictures, and double-click on the illustration of the motherboard.
Now go below in the window, and click on the + sign to Zoom In.
Use the bottom, and side bar, to move it around to the view you want)

Below the illustration is an actual photograph of the motherboard, with no hardware components installed.

The Black connector that goes to the circuit board of the Card Reader, plugs in like this.

There are four wires across the top. There are five wires across the bottom.

Looking INSIDE your computer, TOWARDS the Card Reader circuit board, the four wires go on top, when plugged in. (Not shouting)

Again, looking at the back of the Card Reader, the color code of the wires on the top, going from Left to Right, are:
Thin Black wire, Green, White, and Red.

Wires going along the bottom, starting from Left going Right,
Thick Black wire, Brown, Blue, Yellow, and Orange
