Below is a link to the manual for this motherboard, It should be able to show you where each of the leads on your dislocated panel wires go to.

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules


Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.


Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty


If its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail.


Even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error.


Make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free.


Restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard


Check the VGA cable connection running from the computer to the monitor.

This cable must be completely inserted into both VGA connection ports, otherwise the video signal is not going to reach the display.


Disconnect the VGA cable from the computer and monitor, then look at the metal connectors on both ends.


If you are missing connection pins, the video signal is not going to transfer between hardware correctly.


Examine the power connection on the monitor.

If the monitor is not receiving power, it is not going to turn on.


Turn off the monitor for a few minutes, then power it back on.

Like other computer hardware, the monitor may not initially turn on correctly.


Move the mouse and press the "Enter" key on the computer keyboard.

If the computer is in sleep mode, the monitor is going to appear as if it does not have any display.

If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,

if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on.

To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.

How to connect power swicth on MSI RS482M4-ILD Motherboard


http://www.xpcgear.com/msirs482m4.html

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 need is a Front Panel header pinout.

Looking at the photo in the link above, the Front Panel header is AT the bottom corner.

Motherboard mounted in the computer case, the header of pins all the way to the Right, and Bottom, is the JLPC1 header.

The JLPC1 header is used for board level debugging by MSI, and is not used by the consumer.
[Two rows of pins. Third one from right missing, Top row ]

The header to the left of JLPC1 is the JFP1 header.
Front Panel Header. {Junction Front Panel 1 }

Two rows of pins.
4 across the Top row, 5 across the Bottom row.
The pins are numbered EVEN across the Top row.
The pins are numbered ODD on the Bottom row.

Starting from the Left side of the motherboard going right;
on the Top row,
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO pin 10.

Starting from the Left side going to the right; on the 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 operating, switch the two 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.

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

Power front panel conectors on acer 915m08


This Foxconn 915M08-G-8KS motherboard made for Acer Veriton desktop computers?

http://www.sella.co.nz/general/computers/components/motherboards/other-motherboards/b1jnj6/

Do not know what the Front Panel header pinout is.

(Front plastic part of computer tower is the Front Panel.
Area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the wires (Cables) from the Front Panel connect to, is the Front Panel header )

CAN see by clicking on - View full size image - that the Front Panel header is to the Top Left corner of the motherboard, by the CMOS battery.
(View of mobo is upside down, in relation to how it actually sits in the computer tower case)

Shows me it is just the normal two rows of contact pins used in a LOT of desktop computer mobo's. (MOtherBOard)

If it were I, I would use one of the LED lights connected to two wires, and touch across each two sets of pins.

Looking at the motherboard as it sits in the computer case, there is a row of pins on Top, and a row of pins on Bottom.

In your mind start at the LEFT side of the pins at the TOP.
Number them from Left to Right.
Example, Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

Now number the pins on the Bottom, from Left to Right,
Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10.

Computer plugged into power, touch the two wires of the LED light, to Pins 1 and 2.
Computer doesn't start? (Power Supply turns on)
Go to the next set of pins.

I am willing to bet Pins 5 and 6 turn the Power Supply on.
No? Keep experimenting.

What will happen if you touch the WRONG pins?
N-O-T-H-I-N-G
You will NOT hurt the motherboard.

When you get to the correct pins, the Power Supply will turn on.
These pins are for the Power On switch.

Now go back through the pins with the Power Supply on, but DO NOT touch the pins that turned the Power Supply on.

When the LED light STAYS on, you have the pins for the Power On LED light.

If the LED light BLINKS, you have the HarDDrive activity LED light.

If Windows starts to load, and you touch the Restart switch pins, the computer will restart over again, and Windows will load again.

(IF this computer has a Restart switch. I do NOT use one, even for the older computers. Just press CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys at the SAME TIME, to restart the computer, or use the Task Manager option)

One pin left all by itself? That is for 5 Volts, and only used by the factory. Leave it unconnected.

There may also be a blank spot on the Front Panel header, where it looks like a pin is missing. This is the KEY pin, and is not used.
It is just to orient where the other pins are.

Worried about getting shocked?
There may be a small spark, as you connect the wires, I will gramnt you that.
But the voltage is 5 VOLTS DC.
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 VOLTS DC.

The harmful AC voltage is contained in the metal enclosure, of the Power Supply. Can't get you unless you pour water on it close up, or stick a metal rod through one of the ventilation holes, in the Power Supply enclosure.

joecoolvette

By the by. You could be a lot of people's hero, if you came back, and posted the pins for what they do. Post in a Comment.

Locate the case connector pins on your motherboard. This will be a bank of two rows with 10-12 pins in each row. Each pin will be about 1 cm in length.2 Locate the power lead behind the power button on your computer case. The lead will consist of two thin wires, usually white and black, held together by a small plastic cap.3 Examine the underside of the power lead for an arrow or dot. If one is present, the marking signifies the first pin. This must correspond with the first pin on the motherboard, which will also be indicated by an arrow, dot, or number. If no markings are present, the lead can be installed in either orientation.4 Place the lead over the power pins within the pin bank. The correct pins will be indicated by a diagram on the motherboard, or by a picture in your motherboard's instruction manual.5 Connect the power cable to the back of your computer, and turn the computer on.

    there are many things that can go wrong with a computer software might be misinterperated and diagnosed as a hardware issue restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

    you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell you if and what file has been corrupted or missing then you will know if its a hardware issue then select restart if the problem still persists f8 back into safe mode you might need to select your operating system to load into safe mode

    click start control panel administration tools computer management in the left panel events + to expand then system you will see all errors in right panel right click select properties this will tell you what has occurred and the time it occurred

    you might use the system restore to restore your system to an earlier time click start all programs accessories system tools you should see your system restore option if it is a hardware issue the system restore might not work

    test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

    One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

    Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

    the leads from your "((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
    make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or faulty fan lead can cause you problems

    follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly
    a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working hope this helps also check the Cmos battery and computer ram make sure they are securely seated

    another problem could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time placing to much strain on the CPU also you might not have enough RAM random access memory
    try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive this will schedule on a restart don

    Cpu fan stop few second after starting pc


    Hello,have you installed new motherboard or CPU?
    Follow these steps again
    1) Disconnect the power cord from the back of the computer & open up the case.

    2) Wear an anti-static glove or at very least discharge your static by touching a metal surface or power supply

    3) Disconnect the main 20pin ATX power connector from the motherboard & the square 4pin ATX2 power connector

    4) Remove any PCI cards you have & disconnect ALL drive cabling from the MOTHERBOARD. Also disconnect any internal USB fly leads from the motherboard.

    5) You should now have ONLY the cpu+heatsink/fan, memory & video card installed. Locate the round silver battery in the bottom right corner of the board. Just below it, you'll see a plastic jumper cap. This cap should be covering 2 pins (pins 1 + 2) with pin 3 bare. It will be marked JP1. Move the jumper to cover pins 2-3 instead. Leave in this position for about 30 seconds, then return the jumper to its original position (pins 1-2).

    6) Reconnect the square 4pin ATX2 power connector & the main 20 pin ATX power connector. Make sure that the case speaker or buzzer is connected also.

    7) Make sure the only external devices connected are the keyboard/mouse & monitor. Reconnect the power lead & power on the system

    Let me know what happens

    Motherboard crash


    Check your power supply. Do cord accidentally disconnected?

    Do you use small AVR? Could it be choking the CPU of power. Check CPU power supply if it ok.

    Next thing to check. Cpu unplugged and power off. Ram, video card, PCI card isolate the problem one by one until you get the fault. Or test it to another unit if you can.

    Changing motherboard component is impractical actually like transistor.
