We have to open the system unit where the motherboard is located, but first pull off the power of your computer so that there will be no ground.

Removed the cover, before touching any part inside the system unit (motherboard) touch first the casing or chas-is of the system unit to removed the static in our body.

Let us first remove the reset wire usually the color is red and black it has a name reset at the connection pin at the mother board usually found at the bottom of the mother board, or follow the reset botton wire found infront of your system unit.

After you have removed, try to plug the power of your computer and turn it on. We can open our computer if the reset connection is off.

That will be the first step to know the cause of the problem. Try also to clean the motherboard using vacuum cleaner the portable only or clean paint brush, cause some of those problem due to dust.

I cant find power sw,reset sw,power led and h.d.d. led

From the manufacturer's web-site:

select either the 'P4VMA-M 7.x' or the 'P4VMA-M 2.3' motherboard, and click on 'MANUAL'. Click to download and "save" the '.EXE' file to some folder on your computre. Run that '.EXE' file to create a PDF file in the same folder. Open the PDF file, and scroll-down to page 10, which has a large annotated diagram of the front-panel connectors.

I have an Asus P5VD2-VM SE motherBoard But Cant find The Leds And Switch Connectors


The Front Panel connector is in the lower right corner if you view the MB with the CPU at the top. There are 4 pins on top of the connector and 5 on the bottom. It should be labeled F_PANEL. The connections are:

Top Row first: Power LED +
Top Row second: Power LED -

Top Row third: Power Button
Top Row fourth: Power Button Gnd.

Bottom Row first: HD LED +
Bottom Row second: HD LED -

Bottom Row third: Reset Gnd.
Bottom Row fourth: Reset

Bottom Row fifth: No Connection

The pdf manual will not allow me to copy and paste info so I will lead you to the manual so you will have it to help solve this problem and perhaps future ones.

Go to this site:

In the upper left it has a search box that says "Input Model to Search".
Type in your model number. Click on Search Info.

A verification page will come up. Click on the model number link. You will then get a small window to select your operating system. Do so. Click Search.

You will get a list of available downloads with Manual at the bottom. Click the little + next to Manual. Scroll down to the appropriate language manual. (I assume English. It is the next to last one listed.)

Click on Global (DLM) or Global or China. A download window will open. Select SAVE. Choose the folder to save it to. (My Documents will do.)

When the download is complete click OPEN FOLDER on the download window. The file should be highlighted. Double click on the file to extract the pdf file from the zip file. Once opened, SAVE it as the pdf file where you will be able to reference it in the future.

The front panel connector pinout is on page 1-35.

I cant get the HDD LED to work... yes it is hooked up right...

Some of the wires going from the power switch, reset switch, speaker, and LEDs must be attached to the motherboard the correct way. That is, they must not only be placed in the right spot where they need to go, but they also must be connected with positive and negative wires on the right pins.

If your HDD LED is not lighting up when the HDD is "thinking", try reversing the cable where the HDD LED wire plugs in (just flip it so the black wire is where the non-black wire was). I tried to find a good picture of your motherboard to guide you but they were not very helpful. From squinting really hard, I believe the spot they should plug into the board is by the CMOS battery. There might be printed words on the board surrounding the area to connect them that tells you which two pins are for the HDD LED.

Need help

the pin arrangement is 4 pins and pins.
From left top row (4 pins) first 2 are power led, next 2 are power switch, next 1 is empty
from left bottom row ( 5 pins ) first 2 are hdd, next 2 are reset, next 1 is empty.
The connectors for the power led and the hdd produce a light, if they don't produce a light, power off your pc and switch the cables round the other way and power on again.

The power led and reset led was both on

There is a line connection on power led that has a negative and positive maybe it inter change. Or there is an inter-change connection between your power led and reset led in *********** board.
