Lenovo Ideacentre y900: Questions about the motherboard.

So, I'm building my first PC, and I found a motherboard that was ripped out of an ideacentre y900 on Craigslist. I had 2 questions about the motherboard, and there's not much info online about the motherboard itself online.

 

1. Does the motherboard have integrated Wifi, or do I have to buy a seperate wifi card?

2. How do you setup the front pannel connectors? I'm asking because I heard that some motherboards do it differently.

 

If you could help me, that'll be great. Thanks!

Hi RarePika,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

The motherboard do not have an integrated WLAN card instead separate card can be purchased for it.

Sample part number 00JT471 Wireless,CMB,LTN,NFA344 V2 from the hardware manual page 49.

 

Setting up the front panel can be reference from the service training videos here and module here aside from the hardware manual. Check on technical overview for mainboard locations and other parts here.

You can try to match up with the labels on the board itself and match it from the above image.

 

Hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Re: Lenovo Ideacentre y900: Questions about the motherboard.

Wait! I just took a look at the video on the Wi-Fi card replacement and there's a chip just like that on my motherboard. Does that mean the seller didn't take the Wi-Fi card out? It has a label with a MAC address on it, so I assume it's at least for Bluetooth. What do you think? I can send a picture if you want.
