How can i setteled the front panal usb pin connect on the usb panal on motherboard gigabyte845 gvm-rz

There are 2 USB Ports for the Front Panel USB ie F_USB1 / F_USB2 beside the "PWR_LED". You can use either F_USB ports. Just plug in the USB cable pin accordingly in the Configuration below. Be sure the the negative & positve pins are correctly plug in or it might caused damage to you Mainboard. (Pins 9 &10 not used). For further reference you can download the manual @ Link

Pin No.- Configuration
1-Power 2-Power
3-USBDx- 4-USBDy-
5-USBDx+ 6-USBDy+
9-No pin 10-NC

Hope it helps.

I am replacing a motherboard with a G31-M7 TE and find that my existing power supply has a 20 pin plug consistant with the old motherboard but the new one has a 24 pin socket. Why is this and do I need to...

New motherboards have a 24-pin power connector. Here is a diagram of both plugs:


You can see that the two are almost identical. The extra 4 pins on the 24-pin connector provide extra connection points for a few voltages. Newer boards and processors need more current, and the extra pins were added to prevent overloading.

Adapter cables are available to go from your 20-pin power supply plug to the 24-pin motherboard connector. Here's one from TigerDirect, and other vendors have them as well. If you're not making other changes than replacing the motherboard, you shouldn't need more than this adapter.

If you are upgrading your processor along with the motherboard, you should probably replace the power supply too. Older power supplies are often in the 300-watt range, and this is too low for reliable operation with new processors, motherboards and video cards. A new 500 or 600-watt supply is not expensive, and would give you the 24-pin power connection the motherboard needs.

Hope this has helped. Thanks for using Fixya!

Sound cable connection

Look more closely at your motherboard, for a 4-pin "PC Speaker" label.

The "HD Audio" is _OUTPUT_ (left front, sub-woofer, right front, left back, right back) to Surround Sound speakers.

Need help, put in new mother board and need help putting in usb connection to front of computer have mach speed motherboard, does anyone have a map for this?

There are probably cables coming from the front of the computer. On the motherboard, you will see 2 or more groups of pins where these cables go. Unfortunately, sometimes the cables don't have a single plug, but have one plug that has 3 holes and then 1 that has one. Many times, too, there are 2 sets. So--let's see if this helps:
The pins will be labled something like USB and then several numbers.
The pins look like this ::::. (hope that shows up OK)
If your usb cable end has one large (3-hole) plug and one small, the large one goes over the first 3 pins from left to right. The one on the left is labeled VCC. The separate plug goes on the 4th pin.
You can use the top row of pins or the bottom. Nothing goes on pin #5 on the bottom.
Does this help? If so, rate it accordingly, please.

Mainboard does not recognize the PS/2 mouse

Sounds like the serial port died. I have seen that happen before. You could try a DB9 to PS/2 adapter or DB9 to USB. The DB9 to PS/2 is cheaper of the 2.

Hope this helps.

Vcore power adapter for the cpu

Being that it's new it's probably still covered under warranty. Sounds like the motherboard is the suspect.

On your Mboard there are pins grouped together as such
. . . . .
. . . .
Now below these pins there should be a message USB 4 or USB Front or something to that effect.
using your USB Cables starting from left to right on the top row of pins plug in this order RED - WHITE - GREEN - BLACK, you should be left over with the last spare pin on the far right. Plug the second USB Cable in the exact same order in the secon row
If your pins are such . . . . .
. . . .
Then Just Plug the USB Cable The same way but going from right to left starting with the RED plug on the far Right hand side

let me know how you go

Havimg prob with the 2 usb ports located in front

Hi manky, Normally front USB ports have a pair of 4 wire cable with connectors marked red wire is vcc; white wire is -D; green wire is +D; and black wire is gnd. The motherboard would normally have two pairs of dual pin connectors that would be sitting side by side or in-line with uneven pins - 4 and 5 pins; then another 4 and 5 pins. Please refer to the attached simple diagram for your connection. For some reason I couldn't get hold of a manual from the Gigabyte site of your particular model GA-81KHXT. Nonetheless hopes this works for you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.
