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.

There is your motherboard manual in PDF file form.

(Zip file.
A Zip file is used to send large amounts of information more easily.
It is a Compressed file.
You need to 'unzip' it, or decompress it )

(Adobe Reader uses PDF files)
The Adobe Reader page number box is at the Top, to the right of the Down Arrow.
When I refer to a page it is for that page number box.

Clicking on the Zoom In icon at the Top ( + ) Increases the view size.
Clicking on the Zoom Out icon ( - ) Decreases the view size.

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.

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

Example; Front Panel header pinout:

The Front Panel header is two headers on this motherboard.
Go to Page 11.
Here at the Bottom/Right of the motherboard you see the 6 SATA connectors; all of them Black in color.

To the immediate Left of them, and situated Horizontally; is JFP2.
Junction Front Panel 2.
Two rows of pins.

To the immediate left of JFP2 is JFP1.
It is also situated Horizontally.
Two rows of pins.

JFP1 has two rows of contact pins. 4 across the Top, 5 across the Bottom.
The Top row is numbered EVEN. The Bottom row is numbered ODD.

Starting on the LEFT side, going towards the Right, Top row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

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

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.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. This is reserved for the factory. Probably a 5 Volt (DC) test point.

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

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

F) There is NO Pin 10.

Junction Front Panel 2. (JFP2)

The Top row has 4 pins, and they are numbered EVEN.
The Bottom row has 3 pins, and they are numbered ODD.

Starting on the LEFT side, going towards the Right, Top row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

Starting on the LEFT side, going towards the Right, Bottom row;
Pins 1, 3, and 5. There is NO Pin 7.

A) Pins 1, 3, and 5 are for a THREE wire Power ON LED light.
This type of LED light is a dual color LED.

In the past, and one example; it may have been used for computers that had Turbo Mode, and Normal Mode.
Turbo being Green, Normal being Yellow.

(Which was a bunch of hooey.
Turbo Mode was the Normal mode, and Normal Mode was a slowed down version)

Pin 1 is for the Negative ( - ) wire. Also can be said as the Ground wire.
Pins 2 and 3 are for the power wires, (Positive + ), and each color.

(Example:
Pin 2 for the Yellow side of the dual color LED, and Pin 3 for the Green side of the LED.
Light Emitting Diode. So stating LED -> light is kind of redundant)

B) Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8 are for an internal speaker.
Used to hear BIOS Beep Codes.

If there is something you do not understand, that you need for connecting cables, and peripherals; post back in a Comment.

(A Harddrive, and Optical Drive, are also Peripherals. Not just the Mouse, Keyboard, Printer, Monitor, etc)

What is the sqare chuck , wires two black and two white wires on the motherboard ?


Boy, ya got me.

If it was a small square opaque white socket on the motherboard, that a power cable from the Power Supply; had two YELLOW wires, and two Black wires, and plugged into it, I would know what it is,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

As technology for personal computers advanced, hardware components needed more power.
The motherboard wasn't able to deliver the power needed, so the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, was brought out.

More power was needed later.
Hardware components demanded more power, than a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable could deliver.

So the 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable was brought out,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#eps8

It CONNECTS to the motherboard. (For motherboards that use one)
NOT to be confused with the 8-pin PCI Express power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress8

This power cable plugs into a GRAPHICS CARD, not the motherboard. Note the color code of the wires.

For a PCI Express expansion slot on the motherboard, for a graphics card; the best the PCI Express slot can deliver is 75 Watts.

The 6-pin PCI Express power cable was brought out next,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

It is plugged into the graphics card too, and can deliver up to an additional 75 Watts.
Now there is 150 Watts available for the graphics card.

Computer technology advanced, and the 6-pin PCI Express power cable, couldn't deliver the power needed.

Now comes the 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable.

The 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable by itself, can deliver up to an additional 150 Watts.

Now there is 225 Watts available for a graphics card.
75 Watts from the motherboard, 150 Watts from the 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable.

Color code of wires;
1) Orange = 3.3 Volts
2) Red = 5 Volts
3) Yellow = 12 Volts
ALL are DC Voltage

(Two flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC)

4) Black wires are Ground wires. Also are known as Negative wires.


This motherboard happen to have a manufacturer name, and Model Number?

Can't find it?
How about the computer manufacturer name, and model number, it came out of?

The model number for a desktop computer, is on the back of the computer, next to the Windows product key; or up on the side of the computer tower.

(The plastic front of a desktop computer is the Front Panel.
Some older computers had a Door in the Front Panel.
The door is opened, and you look inside -> Down, for the model number)

next to the red Adobe PDF icon.

There is your motherboard manual.

The PDF file page, and the actual manual's page, are not the same number of page.
Go to Page 5 - Adobe Reader page number, or Page 1 - Actual manual page number.

Be sure to note JFP1 and JFP2.
(Junction Front Panel 1 and Junction Front Panel 2)

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.

The Front Panel header is JFP1.
JFP2 is an auxiliary front panel header. Explanation follows.

JFP1 is two columns of pins.
5 on the Left side; 4 on the Right side.

Pins on the Left side are numbered ODD.
Pins on the Right side are numbered EVEN.

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

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

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light. Usually Red)
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.

C) Pin 9 is N/C.
Not connected.
Probably 5 Volts used by the factory for testing the motherboard.

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

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

F) There is NO pin 10.

JFP2 is to the Left of JFP1.
Two rows of pins.
3 pins on the Top row; 4 pins on the Bottom row.

The 4 pins on the Bottom row are for a speaker.
For an internal speaker so you can hear BIOS Beep Codes.

Pin 2 is all the way to the Right; Pin 8 all the way to the Left.
(2, 4, 6, and 8)
Believe Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire. Pin 8 the Negative ( - ) wire.

The 3 pins on top are for a Power On LED light, that has 3 wires.
A dual color LED. (Yellow/Green? Normal/Turbo)

OKAY!

There's what I'm talkin' about!

The model number.

The eMachines T5246 Desktop PC uses a
Foxconn/Winfast MCP61PM2MA motherboard.

[You stated Foxconn/Winfast. I got that. Just letting you know ]

Guess what?
So does the Gateway GT5476E Desktop PC,

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Shared/4006200R/4006200Rnv.shtml

Click on - Product Views - in the list.

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.

If you need a pinout for the Front Panel header, click on -
S - Front Panel connector

The Top row is numbered EVEN. Starting from the Left side going to the Right;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO pin 10.

[Colors going from Left to Right;
Orange/Yellow, Orange, Green, Green ]

The Bottom row is numbered ODD.
Starting from the Left side going to the Right;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

[Colors going from Left to Right;
Red/Yellow, Red, Blue, Blue, Yellow ]

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 a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is for 5 Volt power. This was used by the factory. It is N/C.
Not Connected.

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

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

Any other connector info you need? Post in a Comment.

Specifications,

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009603/1009603sp2.shtml

1) Ram Memory:
Uses DDR2 Sdram at 667Megahertz. (667MHz)
Maximum TOTAL amount for the motherboard is 2GB. (2 GigaByte)
Maximum Amount for each Ram Memory slot is 1GB.

IF, you just have one ram memory module, make SURE it goes in ram memory slot 1. (DIMM 1)
That is the ram memory slot closest to the Processor.

Uses a SATA harddrive, and IDE (PATA) optical drive/s.

Does have two SATA connectors on the motherboard, so it can use ONE SATA optical drive.

On those SATA connectors on the motherboard,

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Shared/4006200R/4006200Rmvr12.shtml

See the bottom SATA connector has SATA 1 next to it?
The SATA harddrive is supposed to be plugged into it.

However, the beauty of SATA is, NO MATTER WHAT SATA connector you plug into, BIOS will find that device.

Want to plug the SATA harddrive into SATA 1? No problem.
Want to plug the SATA optical drive(CD/DVD drive) into SATA 1?
No problem.

Want to plug the SATA harddrive into SATA 2? No problem.
Want to plug the SATA optical drive into SATA 2? No problem.

BIOS will find the device.
