MSI K7T266Pro Resistor number - FrostyTech.com MSI K7T266Pro Resistor number
Fri Apr 20, 2001 | 3:43A| PermaLink
Thanks to a reader for sending us this information : The numbers on top of the resistors simply indicate the size (value) of the resistor. The numbers designate a base and the number of zeroes at the end. The first two numbers are the base, and the third is designates the zeroes. So, 102 == 1000 ohm, or 1 Kohm. 103 == 10000 ohm, or 10 Kohm. The resistor in question are standard, 5% resistors. (Actually, it's not the number of zeroes -- it's the significant digits. So, 102 == 10 X (10^2) ... but it's the same idea). Anyway, you could go to Radio Shack and get chip-type (SMD) resistors of this size, change them, and do a little experiment. Resistors of this size are generally used for pull-ups or pull-downs, so just taking it off is a bad idea. So is shorting the pads with solder -- you could be shorting a signal to power or ground. If you go to get the resistors, specify: 1k and 10k resistors, chip type, solderable, in a 0603 package. (0603 package has to do with the size of the solder pads it fits on -- this usually the smallest resistors found on motherboards. 0805 resistors would probably work too, but may be slightly too large).
