Reattach Power LED, Power SW, and HDD LED leads

I have a Gateway Computer and I hastily disconnected all three leads from the Intel motherboard and now I need instructions on the correct order for reattachment. The plug number is J9G1 on the motherboard with pins 1-9 available and pin 10 unavailable. Each component has a triangle indicator on the female plug end lining up with a colored wire: Power LED has blue, Power SW has black and HDD LED has red. Please give me the correct reattachment sequence for each component and the corresponding pin number. Thanks! I did the same thing on my Gateway Augsburg 915G and now I can't get the system to power on because I cannot figure out the right sequence. In desperate need of fixing this comp.

The motherboards are almost always labeled and so are the wires. Colored wires are + and black is -. The LED wires and power button wires can go on either way. HDD LED, PW LED PW SW is the switch. These are very common abbreviations on the motherboard.

I need a manual for power sw, hdd sw ,led sw


hello are you trying to connect your motherboard to your desktop pc?
you will have to provide more detail on this as every motherboard is different.
if it is a modern motherboard the correct ports will be indicated on how to attach these to the motherboard and the leads from the desktop power, audio etc will also have these.
please provide more details of the motherboard.

Their should be a 9 pin header at the bottom right corner of the board. Between the sata headers and the corner. There are two rows of pins in the header, one row has 5 and the other 4. The row with 4 pins has the power switch and the power led pins : : : : . They should be color coded red for the switch and green for the power led. From left to right the first pin is for the led (+) lead, the second pin is for the led(-) lead, the third pin and fourth pin are for the power switch. Also there is a 2 pin header above the 9 pin header that is an alternate power led header, the left pin is (+) and the right is (-). I hope this helps you.

Number codes for giving connections to HDD led,Power led, Reset SW & Power SW to motherboard


Those are really tricky and always vary from motherboard to motherboard.
without the exact model no one will be able to tell you exactly. But I'd recommend that you start out with the power (pw) plug and try trial and error. The only ones really necessary are the pw and reset. the only 2 that are polarity sensitive are the HDD light and pw led.
