Normally you do not need a diagram to connect a computer power supply, since the connector will snap into the motherboard socket only in one possible way. These boards are made specifically to go with the case of this model. Sometimes there are similar models with better components that could fit, but its hard to know.
The connectors that you need to hook up are a 4 pin squared connector and the big 20 pins rectangular connector. Once you've got the BIOS working, try starting the system.
The problem is that the network setup app does not recognize this NIC card.
I tried to add a Quantum 40 gb HDD as a slave, and the BIOS would not read it.
Tried putting it in as master, and it only read in at 7.5 gb. The "Florida" part appears as poject tag on my BIOS string.
For more information visit our AMI BIOS ID information page.
At this moment we have 14 AMI BIOS IDs listed for e Machines.
In some cases, benchmarking and stress testing software were used.
All power supplies were measured by themselves with no devices plugged in.
Is getting a new controller card a viable (perhaps only) option? Thanks, Aerohead if you can't find a BIOS update, or one is not available for that machine, then the only other route is a controller card. You'll need to match the card to the ATA specification (although a 100 card will run 66's).

I installed a Maxtor 40 gig as a slave in a e machine 400id with the same mother board as you using the Maxtor software and had no problem.
There might also be options from within the BIOS to flash a update the BIOS. and yes, i too am sorry that i have an emachines, but it was free, and 1.7ghz was better than the 800mhz i had for doing school work.
If anyone can find a manual, i have been unsuccessful, as emaichines support is "worthless"..
