  1. A friend of mine has an IBM Aptiva 2142-S44.
    This has a separate media-console with CD-Rom and Floppy and the ON-OFF switch. I have removed the CD and floppy, and built them in the main PC-case. I also removed the console-card from the PC and managed to get the PC going without that extra stuff.

    Does anybody have the pin-layout for the 10-pin media-cable between console-card and connector J33 and maybe also the
    J38 Power/hard disk LED connector?

    Thanks in advance

    Aptiva 2142 separate media console

    I don't have any information on your questions about the pinouts for the Aptiva etc. But you rposting caught my eye because I also have an Aptiva with the separate media console and have a question. Does anybody know the part number for the cable that connects the tower unit to the separate media console? My Aptiva was in storage and the cable has been misplaced and I am finding it very difficult to order a replacement.

    Thanks.
