In most cases, no, that won't fry the motherboard. It might not boot, but shouldn't fry it. If you're getting no response from the board at boot, make sure you have the CPU fully seated in its' slot. Make sure those front panel wires are in the right place, too - especially the power switch and reset switch. Give it a shot, and see if the board is getting power - are any of the fans running? The thing is, make sure you have that power switch connector on the right jumper, and turned the right way (positive where it should be).

If you have any further information, I could make a better guess, but for now... good luck.

Cheers

    You don't need either the HD LED or the Power LED to boot the system. What you DO need is the Power Switch, and make sure it is lined up properly, positive prong to positve socket. The only two connectors that actually do anything are Power and Reset. I've never seen a front panel connector that's three prong - LED's only use positive and negative. Does that three-prong plug have 2 or three wires coming out of it? If it only has two, then one of the holes is essentially a dummy, so you'd treat it like a two prong connector, anyway. If you have a model number for the case and motherboard, I could give you more specific information, though I know that's hard to find, especially with a case.

    But, to recap, the Power LED and HD LED are just indicators - they don't have anything to do with the system booting. The primary one to be concerned with is the Power connector, as it will determine whether or not the board is getting power, depending on it you push the switch or not. You have to be sure that one is connected correctly. Sorry to hear about the CPU. That would definitely cause one not to boot. Once you are sure you have a good one installed, connect the power switch and see what happens.

Motherboard


The front of your computer is the Front Panel

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires from the Front Panel go to; is the Front Panel header.

What you are asking for is a Front Panel header pinout.

I do not have the exact Front Panel header pinout, for your motherboard.
Tell you what I do have though..........

Looking at the Front Panel header on the Ebay link, for the Winfast 760m02-GX-6LRS; the Front Panel header looks to be below the CMOS battery, and close to the Bottom edge of the motherboard.

(Motherboard installed in computer case)

Black rectangular strip of plastic, with contact pins sticking up.
Also looks to be a GENERAL set-up for all Winfast motherboards.
(COULD be wrong here)

This is what I am referencing off of,

http://www.devhardware.com/c/a/Motherboards/Foxconn-Winfast-NF4SK8AA8EKRS-Motherboard-Review/3/

Go to the third photo down. Here you see the Front Panel wires, connected to the Front Panel header; on the motherboard.
(Below round CMOS battery)

Note that the contact pin on the Bottom row, and all the way to the Right; is NOT being used.
(I'm using a 26 inch HDTV as my primary monitor, so it may be easier for me to see)

Now look at this Front Panel header pinout, for another Winfast motherboard,

http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f15/winfast-mobo-front-panel-connection-558456.html

(Scroll down a little)

PWRLED is for the Power On LED (Light)
PWRSW stands for Power On switch
HD-LED stands for the HarDDrive activity LED (Light)
RESET stands for a Reset switch, IF USED.

Note where it has a Positive ( + ) sign, next to the pin for the PWRLED.
This is the pin the + wire from the Power On LED connects to.
It is the SAME for every LED that connects to the Front Panel header.

Let's number the contact pins, to make the explanation easier;
Starting at the Left side, Top row; going towards the Right;
Pins 2, 4, 6 and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

Starting on the Left side, Bottom row; going towards the Right;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

Pin 2 is for the Positive wire.
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire
If the LED's are dim, (PWRLED, and HDD LED), OR; the LED's do not light up, switch the wires around.

(Pin 9 is N/C.........Not Connected. This is probably a 5 Volt test point, that was used by the factory)

There is a method you can use though, and find out what the individual contact pins are, in the Front Panel header;

Use an LED with two wires

Computer (Power Supply) plugged into power, go along the top row, and touch two pins at a time, with the two wires of the LED.

Example; Pins 2 and 4, as shown in the pinout.
Did the Power Supply come on?
No?

Go to the next two pins. Try again.
When the Power Supply comes on, you naturally know that is the two contact pins; for the Power On switch.
DO NOT touch them again. In fact connect the Power On switch wires.

Power Supply on, computer running;
Now go back along again;
1) LED light blinks?
You have the HarDDrive activity LED, contact pins.
2) LED light stays on?
You have the Power On LED, contact pins.
3) Computer restarts?
Those are the Reset switch, contact pins.

4) Nothing happens?
May be contact pins for a speaker, or contact pins that are not used.
(Speaker is for hearing BIOS Beep Codes.
You have a Piezo buzzer, to the Left of the CMOS battery; for that)

Post back in a Comment, as to the results.

If possible, I would like to ask upon you; to post the Front Panel header pinout; when you find what it is.

That way when a person in the future also has this same problem; the solution will be posted on the internet, for them to find.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Can't help you.









OH, I'm just KIDDING!

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the main wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

On the motherboard the Front Panel header is marked as PANEL1.
Scroll the page down, until you come to Motherboard layout.
Click on the + sign to the left of it.

Shows an illustration of the motherboard.
Bottom/Right corner is PANEL1. The black rectangle that is sitting vertically, in the motherboard photo.

Motherboard installed in computer case, the Front Panel header is two columns of contact pins.
FOUR on the Right side, FIVE on the Left side.

I don't know the actual numbering of the pins, so I'm going to number them myself;

Starting on the Left side at the Top, going down,
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

Starting on the Right side at the Top, going down,
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED (Light)
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used. If not, do not connect to them.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. It was a +5 Volt power for the factory.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED (Light)
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the Power On LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

F) NO pin 10, just a blank spot.

How to find out what wires are what, in that Front Panel harness connector?

Follow the wires from the connector, up to the Front Panel.

Front Panel removed it is easier to see where the wires go.
You can follow the color code of the wires, and see which twisted pair go up to the Power On switch.

You can also see which ones go to the Power On LED.
(Light Emitting Diode, so it is a light)

Reset switch, (IF there is one), same thing.

The only pair of wires that will be left is the HDD LED wires.
HarDDrive activity LED.

The 9-pin plug will have to be CAREFULLY cut apart. Separate the wires, AND their metal terminals. (WATCH your fingers!)

Wire diagram


The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

Specifically we are talking about the Reset switch, Power On switch, HarDDrive activity LED light, and Power On LED light.
Speaker pins for an onboard speaker< (BIOS Beep Codes), may be also included in this header.

What you need is a Front Panel header pinout.

I'm looking at the motherboard now,

http://www.motherboards.org/imageview.html?i=/images/mobot/motherboards/6335.jpg

The silkscreen print next to the Front panel header, is fuzzy. Probably is on your motherboard also.

[Motherboard installed in computer case, the Front panel header is at the Bottom/Right corner. Just wanted you to know, I KNOW.

The photo has the motherboard turned 90 degrees to the Right.
PANEL is silkscreened to the Right of the Front Panel header ]

Looking at the motherboard installed in the computer case, the Front Panel header is two rows of pins.

The pins have a white rectangle silkscreened around them. To the left of these two rows of 10 pins, is another small rectangle in white.
These are for IrDA,
(6 pins. Two rows of 3 pins)

http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/I/IrDA.html

Suggest leave them alone.

There are 20 pins. Two rows of 10 pins for the Front panel header.
Willing to bet Pin 1 is the pin to the upper Left corner.
Pin 20 is the pin at the bottom Right corner.

Coming from the Left side, across the Top row;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, and 19.

Coming from the Left side, across the Bottom row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, and 20.

It looks as though this is just the old Front Panel header setup, used for a lot of old motherboards.

For example, I can just about make out the pins for the HDD activity LED light.
Bottom row, come from the Left side.

The first three pins, which are pins 2, 4, and 6, are for the Keylock.
DO not connect any wires to them!
The next two pins, 8 and 10 are for the HarDDRive activity LED.

Top row; Pins 5 and 7 look like they are for the Power On LED.

HOWEVER, let's use deductive reasoning based on intelligent thought.
Or in otherwords, 'Wing it'.

All you have to do, is get one of those LED lights that have two wires.
This will be your test unit.

Go across the Top row. Touch TWO pins at a time. For example Pins 1 and 3. No power? Touch pins 5 and 7. No power?
(Shouldn't be)

Touch pins 9 and 11, and so on. Keep going across the Top row.
No good? Go across the bottom row, BUT SKIP pins 2 and 4.

What will happen? When you finally touch, the two pins for the Power On switch, the LED light will light up, and the Power Supply will turn on.

With the Power Supply on you can go back, and see which two pins keep the test LED light ON. These pins will be for the Power On LED.

Test LED light blinks? You are touching the pins for the HarDDrive activity LED.

Windows is running, and you touch two pins, and Windows restarts?
You have the pins for the Reset switch.

Speaker pins will be FOUR pins in a row, and by finding the rest of the pins, you will know which ones these are.

BY using the LED light you will harm NOTHING. In fact you could use a jumper wire. If you touch the wrong pins, NOTHING will happen. If you touch the two pins for the Power On switch, the Power Supply will come on.

Shock Hazard:
The VOLTAGE is 5 Volt DC.
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries store 3 Volts DC.

In otherwords; NONE.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
It may be hard for you to navigate around this website, but would appreciate hearing back from you.

Perhaps you can post a Front Panel header pinout, for this motherboard, and be somebodies hero.

Just a thought.

Intel D848PMB MOTHERBOARD PANEL


I would like you to download the Motherboard Manual for the Intel D848PMB mobo, from Intel,
(Mobo = MOtherBOard),

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d848pmb/sb/cs-008915.htm?wapkw=%28Intel+D848PMB%29

On this page click on the first file listed.

Click on the blue - Product Guide - PDF, above the file name,

File Name: D848PMB_ProductGuide_English02.pdf

It may take as long as 30 seconds before you see the first page. It may also take additional time to fully download the file.

This is just a temporary download so that you can view the file. (Manual)
There is a way to download it to your computer for safekeeping.
(This way you can also burn a copy to a CD disk, and delete it from your computer to save harddrive space)

If you do not know how, and wish to, please state in a Comment.

Orient the motherboard in your mind, so that we are both looking at it in the same direction.
With the computer case open the motherboard will be sitting in this direction;

Processor to the top, (Processor fan on top of Processor), Ram Memory to the right, and the white PCI slots (3) are to the bottom.

The Front Panel header is located at the bottom Right corner. It is situated on the Right side.

(The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel. The area of pins on the motherboard that the Front Panel cable, (Wires), connect to is the Front Panel Header)

There is two columns of pins. The header itself is vertical, (Parallel to the Right side), with pins arranged in two's going down the header.

In the Motherboard Manual (Product Guide) on Page 12, the letter S points to the Front Panel header.

The Front Panel header's pins are numbered. The numbering begins from the BOTTOM of the motherboard, and increases going towards the top.

(Page 35. The letter E points at the Front Panel header.
It is also named J9H3. Junction 9 Header 3)

Bottom RIGHT column starting from the BOTTOM of the motherboard, going towards the top,

Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

Bottom LEFT column starting from the BOTTOM of the motherboard, going towards the top,

Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. (There is NO Pin 10)

Page 36,

1) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive Activity LED light. (Blinks when the harddrive is active, and in use)

2) Pins 5 , 7, and 9 are for a Reset switch. (Reset button)
This is IF a reset switch is used.

(This is what CTRL, ALT and DELete are for)

3) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.

[NOTE*
If the HDD Activity LED light, or the Power On LED light are dim, switch the wires around]

4) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

Hi, im trying to connect motherboard intel D865GVHZ front panel to connection J9H3, i need a diagram for it. Thank you for your help


I may be confused with your problem you posted mar13974.
I thought Jumper J9H3 was for the Front Chassis Fan.
By your post, it leads me to believe you want the pin assignments for the Front Panel header on the mobo.

At any rate let's go to Intel Product Support, and the download page for the motherboard manual, for the Intel D865GVHZ desktop mobo,
(MOtherBOard),

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d865gvhz/sb/CS-010872.htm

Click on the blue file name - D865GVHZ_ProductGuide01_English.pdf

After you click you may not see anything happening for up to 30 seconds. The file is downloading in the background.
(Took 16 seconds for me just now with a medium speed DSL connection)

Page 33 shows the location of the Front Panel header on the motherboard.
(C)
Page 34 details the pin assignments

Page 36 shows the Front Chassis Fan header location (Chassis front fan)
3-pin header, doesn't state the pin assignments.
With a 3-wire fan cable,
A) 1 wire is the Power wire. Generally Red
B) 1 wire is the Ground wire. Generally Black
C) 1 wire is the speed sensor wire. Reads how fast the fan is spinning in Revolutions Per Minute
(RPM) Generally Blue, but it's up to the individual manufacturer.

If the above isn't what you had in mind, please state in a Comment.

Problem with microphone


most of the old motherboards dont support the audio and mic port to work both in back side(back panel header) and front side (front panel header)simultaneously...

most of the old motherboards dont support multi streaming so you cant make both the back panel header and front panel header to work at a time ie i mean you cant connect both panel header at a time ...

you can just refer to your motherboard manual for the detailed information about it ..

in your motherboard if there is any option to connect the front panel header to the motherboard other than the back panel header you can connect it to that the detailed pin information will be given in the motherboard manual ..

if you dont have the option in the motherboard to connect the front panel header seperately then you must remove the pins connected from the back panel header and you must insert the front panel header pins .
this will disable your back panel audio ,mic,linein functionalities but you will be able to connect in front panel header , this front panel header will work ..

if the motherboard is not compatible then the system assembler will leave the front panel wires not connecting to motherboard ..

like this only one panel can work at a time ,
but in the latest motherboards the multi streaming technology has been introduced so both the panels can work at a time and can play different audio on 2 different panels ...

thank you

First of all remove the front panel connectors before powering up, cause U do not want to put any wires to the USB headers. In doing so u might damage u'r board Second get your hands on the mother board manual,, if the front header has no label printing indicating the connection details. If no manual. then get on line and do a google search you'll find plenty of info's on how to DIY. Happy hunting Rifaa
