The power switch connects to the PWR PT pins. The speaker hooks to the SPEAK pins (only the outer pins actually used). The HDD LED connector hooks to the HLED pins. There is usually one red and one white wire. The RED wire goes to the "+" pin. The power LED wires hook to the PLED Pins. There is usually a green and a white wire. The GREEN sire goes to the "+" pin. The GLED pins are for the SLEEP switch if you case has one. The RST pins are for the RESET switch wires (if your case has one). Hope that helps
Not sure of your particular MB, but most always the switch is a pair of pins in an array where the front panel LEDs and reset and power switch are. This array of pins is almost always at the lower right hand side of MB. Assume the components side is facing you and the expansion slots are at your left hand, (where you add extra cards like video etc). then look at the lower right side or bottom edge, mostly right at the edge of the board. Should be an a double row of pins, at least 8 maybe up to 12. Look real close next to these and you may see print indicating which pair do what. PS = power switch. RS = reset, HD = Hard drive LED PLED = power led light.Spk internal beep speaker etc. (Note LEDs require correct polarity to work) Sometimes no print there.. Then you need the manual to decipher pin pairs. Or experiment. All you need to do is make the connection momentarily (like push button) with a small screw driver tip to start it, while looking for correct pins. If no power on check your power supply connections on the MB. Or suspect either MB or Power supply issue.
When looking at the motherboard with the back of the computer to your left, there should be a row of pins on the lower right corner of the motheboard (or close to the corner). These pins are normally marked as something like PLED (for the power LED), PWR SW for power switch, RST for reset, IDE LED for the hard drive light, etc. The power switch is normally along the bottom row and the power LED is on the top. But--to find where the power switch goes, take a small screwdriver and short two of the pins to see if the computer turns on. If it does, you've found the power switch. When the computer is running, put the power LED plug across two pins to see if the power light lights. If it doesn't, try two more until you find it.
This is the Labelled connectors of the front panel headers:
TOP = Left to Right = 2 - 4 - 6 - 8 - 10 BOTTOM = Left to Right = 1 - 3 - 5 - 7 - 9
and the pins should be connected in the sequence as shown below:
TOP = L to R = PLED = PLED (Power Led) and PWR+GND (Power switch) BOTTOM = L to R = HDLED+HDLED (Hard disk LED) and Ground + Reset (Reset Switch) If you have problem following my instructions, let me know with more details. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.
If your talking about the pins on the mother board for the on power switch, HDD LED, reset, power led, and system speaker you would need to note the make and model of *********** board. If you look very closely you should see little letters for example , PWS, HDD,RST,PCS,PLED, These mach up to the pins on the motherboard. also most commonly the PC speaker has an open pin so it will be 3 pins long and not just 2. To find the make and model of a motherboard you can find a name and a group of numbers something like " Intel A33Y97 " and then google for more information if needed.
Hi, on the edge of your mother board closest to the front of the computer, you will find a double row of pins. Use a torch and if needed a magnifying glass and study these, you will find they are labeled the same as your cables from the case.
In some cases the plugs are set as a 3 space plug, if you find one of these that wont fit. just split it. If you plug the LED wire back to front, don't panic it won't hurt they just wont work. The power and reset are not pole sensetive.
And usually one of the NC pins is no pin as some USB cables have that
pin blanked out to ensure you connect them the right way. Note also
with USB you start with the VCC then you go straight to negative data,
then positive, then ground (again the - and + data bits, like the reset are in reverse of normal reading - the are right to left, not left to right!)
Finally if your not sure which cable is + and which is - the - ones are normally either black or white (most of them are white, except the speaker ones which are black - I presume that goes back to the colour scheme of red and black for positive and negative in audio equipment) and the + ones are normally some colour.
