    Spare faceplate

    David935

      Hi,

       

      I recently bought a new motherboard from an action. I got it home and it was missing the manual, disk and faceplate (the little metalic plate that neatens up the ports on the back of the computer). I can obviously download the manual and drivers, but is there anywhere I can go to simply to purchase a spare face plate?

          IN Intels support page is a link to a place called industryeducation.com there you can get replacement faceplates ( about $10-$15 )  or google the name of the place. I got a plate for My DP45SG took about 3 days Not too bad.

            Hi,

            If you contact Intel support, they should send you one free specially if you didn't get one in the box.

              Thank you Robert Cpt.Dogfruit for your responses.

               

              I have found the Intel website that contained a list of all their IO Shields:

              http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/cs-009031.htm

              and found that a link on that page went to "Industry Educations's" website where one can be purchased for a few dollars plus postage. The site is not accepting the security check for my credit card, but that is a problem for another day.

               

              The motherboard in question was bought at an auction for a local distributer who went broke recently. The board was from an OEM bulk box. Somewhere the manual, disk and IO shield got separated. I did ring the auction house to find out if there where any left over, but all had been cleared out by then. So this is not an Intel problem and I would not feel right in asking for another one for free.
