There isn't one on the back panel. You must connect the USB/1394 bracket that's included with the board to an empty slot on the rear of the computer and hook up its connectors INSIDE the computer to the appropriate headers on the motherboard: the purple firewire connector would connect to the purple header (DUH!) on the RIGHT in the pic below, it's a DOUBLE firewire header and it's the only place this bracket will fit. The yellow USB connector would go to any open USB header on the board (guess what color...) Very simple, really.

Optionally if your computer case has a built-in firewire port on the FRONT panel, as most do nowadays, you can connect that to the appropriate header on the board using the already-installed cable that's connected to that front firewire port (connect this one to the purple header on the LEFT, it's just a SINGLE firewire port.)
However, this header's pins will NOT match up properly with almost all case's front-panel firewire connectors. You would most likely have to switch around 2 or 3 of the little wires that go into the connector so that it matches the motherboard's pin-out.

It's clearly labled in the manual for the board, and isn't really all that difficult to switch the wires around, but I would recommend just going with the first option and connect the included bracket to the back since it was designed to go with this board and requires no modification.

Can a GA7-VAX motherboard support a flat panel montior and firewire? Can I just add the two cards? What about broadband? Or do I need to upgrade the motherboard and CPU to allow functionality? Please...


Socket A motherboards aren't going to support any real impressive processors. I'd recommend upgrading anyway, but yes, you can just add a firewire card. I like Zonet, they are affordable reference boards. You can use a flat panel monitor either with a analog adapter, a monitor that actually has an analog input (Most acer displays currently available either have the option, or only support analog.)

FRONT AUDIO PORT


If you are familiar with electronic parts you can fix this with your own. Open you CPU casing and locate the wire connected to your front audio. At the end part of the wire from your front panel you need to plug the end part to your motherboard. You can see the audio port at the lower part to the motherboard. You can read there a label audio input so you plug at this port

Configure front panel audio


Look up the configuration in the manual for the motherboard. It will give you the location of the header set and the pinout. If there is no front audio panel you must jump 4 pins to force the audio to the rear ports. It should describe this in the manual aswell.

Return the motherboard to the place where you bought it, and have them explain the differences that you have observed.

Are there any wires running from the FireWire port on the front of your computer's case to any connector on your motherboard?
