I would like you to go here to Motherboards.org,
Where it states -> File: 5185v10.zipVersion:--Release Date:-- Download
I would like you to click on Download.
You will see a small window come up. Click on the empty circle to the left of -> Save
Unless, you have your downloads going to your My Documents folder (Start>My Documents) this will wind up on your desktop screen. It will be a yellow folder icon with probably -> 5185v10.zip <- under it.
Double-click on the yellow folder icon. You will see 6 PDF files.
5185-1.pdf, 5185-2.pdf, and so on.
To open them and look at them, you double-click on each one, one at a time.
Then in the File Download window, you click on Open.
In 5185-2.pdf, it shows you the Front Panel header, and where the Front Panel wires go.
(Not trying to insult your intelligence. The Front Panel is where your Power On button is. The Front Panel header is on the motherboard. A connector on a motherboard, is referred to as a Header)
Should somehow you can't download this PDF Motherboard Manual, I will try to explain the connections on the Front Panel header. Bear with me.
Viewing the motherboard with the processor up at the top, ram memory to the right, the Front Panel header is on the bottom right. It is the JFP2 header.
(The motherboard manual, clearly shows this header as being the JFP2 header. Then it states it's the JFP1 header. Believe there was a misprint. You'll know)
It is situated lengthwise up and down, parallel to the right side of the motherboard, with two rows of pins.
The pins are numbered 1 through 20. There are spots where there are No pins. Where there is no pin, I will state -> No connect
Starting at the top on the left side, and coming down.
Pin 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, No connect, and 10.
Starting on the top right side, and coming down.
No connect, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, No connect, 2, and 1.
1.Pins 18 and 17 are for the Reset Switch
2.Pins 16 through 13 are for the internal speaker
3.Pins 12 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED.
4.Pins 10 and 1 are for the Keylock Switch
5.Pins 8 and 7 are for the Power On switch
6.Pins 6, 5, and 4, are for the Power LED
Pin 6 is the Positive connection, (+)
This motherboard uses an ATX 20-pin motherboard power connector.
It is at the top of the motherboard, and goes across lengthwise.
There are 20 socket holes.
Pin 1 is on the top left. It uses an Orange wire. (3.3 volts)
Pin 10 is all the way to the right. It uses a Yellow wire, (12 volts)
