Hi sivaprasanna,
Do you still have your manual? If so turn to page 72 for location.
For a close look at the motherboard front panel led to MB pins look at these two pics.
Location of front panel connections;

POWER SWITCH - f111d01.jpg
Item " A " is the front panel MB pins.

Pic two is the layout for each front panel connection;


The power on jumper uses pins 7 & 8.
Pin 7 is positive & pin 8 is negative.

Good luck sivaprasanna!
Mike

Trying to install an ASUS H81M-C Mainboard with Intel core i5-4460. No way to turn on. Mainboard's Power led is on. Nothing happens at all. All connections are OK. Anyone has an idea? Thanks.


When you say that all connections are ok, you understand that we have to verify as this is the most common problem that occurs when installing motherboards. Obviously you have the large connector from the power supply plugged in since you have the power led on the motherboard. This is good. There is also the ATX 12V CPU 4-pin power connector that must be connected just above and to the left of the CPU. But the most often messed up arrangement are the front panel connections to the motherboard at the lower right corner. This is a 9-pin connector block (actually 10, but top right corner pin not there and bottom right not used).

In the link attached, go to page 26 of the pdf, which is page 1-18 of the manual. At the top of the page is a drawing of the connector block. The green power led takes the first two pins in the top row from the left. The connector plug should have a green and a white wire. The green is the positive and goes on the left pin of the pair.
Right below that is the two pins for the HDD light. This plug should have red and white wires. The red wire is positive and goes to the left pin of the pair. Going back to the top, the power button is the remaining two pins. These wires can vary in color from case to case, but if you don't see a label, just follow them back to the power switch to figure out which pair they are. This connector can be installed either way, there is no fixed polarity. The remaining two pins are for the reset switch, which some cases have and some don't. This connection does not to be used.

If you have everything correct and the unit still won't power up, then you need to verify that the power switch is working. If you have a reset switch, it is easy to test, just switch the reset and power button connectors and press and release the reset button and see if the board powers up. If you don't have a reset switch, remove the connector from the power button pins and carefully short them together for a brief second, which simulates pressing the power button. If it still doesn't power up, then there is something wrong with the motherboard.

One last thing, if the front panel connectors are all installed into one plug (which some manufacturers like DELL does, and you are installing this motherboard into their case, be sure to verify that the wires on the connector goes to the appropriate front panel switches/indicators, as these connector blocks are not fully standardized.

The led on the front won't light, and I have power connected, but nothing. Is there a reset somewere?


I am assuming you are trying to power up an installed motherboard, based on the category selection. You say that you have power connected. That means that you have connected the 20 (24) pin main connector and the 4 or 8 pin CPU power connector to the motherboard. Have you connected the front panels controls to the motherboard header? There are connections for the power switch, power LED, HDD LED, reset switch (optional). They must be connected in order for the motherboard to start. THe HDD and Power LED connections are polarity-based, so if you hook them upo backwards, their respective LED will not light. The HDD LED plug is usually red and white with the red being on the positive (+) terminal. The Power LED plug is usually green and white with the green wire going to the positive terminal. The power switch and reset switch wires can be connected either way as they are not polarized.

Test atx-300-12e power supply


Remove the switch mode power supply from the computer.
You need the pin out details of the 20 pin connector from this WEB site.
http://pinouts.ru/Power/atxpower_pinout.shtml.
You will also need a multimeter to test the 4 pin connectors for the 5 and 12 volts.
Connect a hard drive to one of the 4 pin power connectors, this will provide a load on the power supply when it is powered up.
Connect the mains power to the switch mode power supply and if the switch mode has a switch on the back then switch it to the ON position.
Straighten a paper clip to form a U shape and insert one end of the paper clip into pin14 and the other end into pin 15 or 16 or 17 (ground). This is the same connection/switch on the power button on the front panel of your computer.
You can now measure the voltage on the 4 pin connectors for 5 volts (red and black wire) and 12 volts (yellow and black wire).
If you don't get these voltages then the switch mode power supply is faulty and needs to be replaced.

How to wire front panal


You will need to open the computer case and check that the cables that run from the actual power button to the motherboard are plugged into the proper spot on the motherboard. Sometimes reseating the cable can fix this issue.

I think this is the link to your motherboard documentation: http://www.via.com.tw/download/mainboards/3/4/p4mapro533_r100.pdf

Check the page 2-14 or 2-15 and see if that helps you to identify the actual connection for your power switch.

Dont seem to have enough front panel pins for all my case wires


Hi Greeneyedbj,

What kind of I/O connectors are you looking for *********** board sir?

pcsyke_138.jpg

The image above has the following for your I/O connectors.
1. Three usb headers up to 6 additional devices, most casing can support 2-4 pins. 2. Front Audio Connector. 3. Front Panel Connector. Power Sw, Reset Sw, Powed Led, HDD Led

Branded casing has the following I/O connectors.
1. Esata 2. Firewire (Dont use the USB headers, firewire use a different pin-layout) 3. Chassis Intrusion Alarm Header.

Hopefully this information helps.
You can ask for more help.
Thank you for using FixYa.

My motherboard is getting power from a 450w smps coz the board LED gets on when I switch on the ups. But pressing the power button on the cabinet does not switch on the system. Please help!!!!


From your diagnoses you may have a bad Power On switch, or a bad Power Supply.

Reasoning?

An ATX power on switch is connected to the motherboard's Front Panel header.
From there the circuit is continued through the ATX main power cable, and into the Power Supply.

The Power On switch connects the Soft Power On wire, to Ground.
(The Soft Power On wire is abbreviated as PS_ON. The wire is Green)


If the Power On switch is bad the Power Supply will not turn on.


A bad Power Supply will have a weak voltage power rail, (Or more than one)
Enough power to light LED lights, and perhaps spin fans, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.
No Processor operating, no computer.

1) If all of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

3) A typical Processor can use from 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.
(Older Intel Pentium III's, and comparative AMD processors used less than 51 Watts)

You may have enough power to light that LED light, but not enough to spin fans, or turn the Processor on.


There is a simple test to see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.
Bypass the Power On switch.

A jumper wire is used to temporarily connect the Soft Power On wire to ANY Ground wire.
The connection is made at the Back of the ATX main power cable's connector, with the ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard, and computer plugged into power.

1) The Asus M2N-MX (And SE version) motherboard uses a 24-pin ATX main power cable.

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM2/M2NMX_SE_Plus/

This is one example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

Looking at the photo to the far right, shows the 24-pin ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard.
This is the position for the test.
(Computer also plugged into power)

The BACK of the connector is where the wires go into the connector.
The jumper wire is used on the Back side of the connector.

One end of the jumper wire goes down into the socket hole with the Green wire.
(Soft Power On wire)
The other end of the jumper wire goes down into ANY socket hole with a Black wire in it.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

The jumper wire goes down into the socket hole RIGHT NEXT TO the existing wire.
The jumper wire MUST go down into the socket hole far enough to touch a metal terminal.

At the end of every wire going down into the ATX main power cable's connector, is a metal terminal.
The metal terminal is pretty far down in the socket hole.

The preferred jumper wire used is a paper clip.
The paper clip's diameter is small enough, to go right next to the existing wire in the socket hole, and touch the metal terminal.

The paper clip is straightened out, then bent into a U-shape.
The 'legs' of the U-shape go down into the two socket holes.
The middle is wrapped with a few wraps of black plastic electrical tape.
The taped area is for your finger, and thumb to hold onto.

The voltage is 5 Volts DC.
Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.
There may be a small spark when you make the connection, advising you in advance.

The connection made is no longer than 2 seconds.
(The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch)

Computer comes on, (Power Supply actually) you know you have a bad Power On switch.
Computer does Not come on, you know you have a bad Power Supply.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I need to connect the(power led,reset switch,hdd led,dc switch)


Well I was a little confused since your category is with the Gigabyte.. k.. let's proceed like this.. First of all refer to this Photo.. eb607bc.jpg See the Arrows direction, when you carefully look at the male connectors (pins), you'll notice that there's something written beside them.. P or power or pw switch Reset switch, hdd led, power led etc.. Here you have to connect the corresponding connectors in the direction (This Way) shown with the arrow, as of now.. Vertical direction not horizontal, or else there might be problem later.. so check this carefully and do the connection. If you still can't make out, let me know again.... Good luck.. nonontech@gmail.com

If it doesnt switch on make sure all the power supply connectors are connected to the motherboard.
Make sure the power switch lead is connected correctly to the power on pins on the board too.
Make sure the CPU fan is connected to the Fan connector on the motherboard to see if the fan spins or not.
Try a more powerfull power supply 400w or higher.

Power switch,reset switch,power led connections to motherboard?


Hi ramjet007;

This is strange because MSI doesn't have information on the 7548, since it was made directly for HP. Here is a diagram of another MSI similiar and usually they have their pins on their jumpers pretty much the same. You would use JFP1, And Pin's 1&3 would be the hard drive, 2 & 4 would be the LED, 6 & 8 would be the power switch, and 5&7 would be the reset switch. I know your motherboard is setup differnently, but your JFP1 should be in the right hand corner all by itself.





Front Panel Connectors: JFP1 & JFP2

Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating.
