I can't find a motherboard manual so I know the pin layout of my Acer Aspire AX3200-U3600A. I switched the motherboard into a new case, but can't figure out the pins to connect the power led, hdd led, reset s/w, and the +p and -p leds

I know what set of pins, just don't know exactly what connects to what pins.
I was given useless information. Like.... H.D.D LED connects to pins 1-3 and the such. And which pin is number 1....

Re: Connecting the case to my motherboard
Pin arrangment is Industry Standard Architecture.....
pwr led pwr sw N/C
X X X X O
X X X X O
hdd rst N/C
translated this is top row left to right ...... power led, power switch no connection
Bottom row is left to right........ hard drive, reset, no connection
Note: not all computer cases have a reset button, also the connectors for power led and hard drive produce a light, if the light does not show, power off the pc swithc the cable rooun 180deg on the connector pins and reconnect.

Gail, you are needing to reinstall your operating system to gain control of the system. once you reinstall OS, your files will be placed into a windows.old file on your c:/ drive. hope this helps. ps. if have dont care about what is on the hard, reformat it if possible. plus you can buy a second harddrive and install OS on that and change that drive to your primary drive. your files will be accessible through drive d:/ unless its a laptop. sorry
Your laptop is most likely very similar to the 7720, the pdf of the manual and layout is on their website at: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/manuals/acer/0000/userguides/AS7720_7720G_ENG-OLM.pdf thanks, James, --------please vote 4 thumbs up 4 me-----------
Yes. usually. Most boards have pins missing. The board layout is for all boards,not all models. That is the reason that sometimes pins are missing. You will see layouts for other items(options) missing also. Ido not have A drawing or picture of your particular board though.
Hello davideiker1, the Intel D845GRG MB manual is shared with another Intel board. (D845GBV MB). Go to this Intel site & download the D845GRG manual; http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845grg/sb/cs-008873.htm You'll need Adobe reader to view the manual. Download Adobe from this link; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/ See page 9 for motherboard layout. The front panel connectors are shown on page 68, see item C. On page 69 is, Table 31 shows the pin assignments for the front panel header. Front Panel Header (J9G1). Pin 1 is power for the hard disk drive led, pin-3 is negative for the hard disk drive. Wire colors coming from the case are important. Look at all of the front case wires. The common color for each 2-pin connector will be ground. In most cases the ground wire is white, except for the internal speaker. Ground for the speaker is normally black. (This motherboards speaker is built into the MB, no hook up is needed). Pin number 2 is positive for the case power led which lights up as green. Pin 4 is negative for the power led. The reset switch is a bit different. Pin 5 is negative & pin 9 is positive, however if your case uses a two pin connector than connect pin 7 as ground & pin 9 for positive. The On/Off switch, pin 6 is positive & pin 8 is negative. If this manual is not what you see on the MB, please advise.
Good luck davideiker1! Need more information/questions post here. Thank you for using FixYa. Input, comments are welcomed. Mike
You'll need to know the model of your motherboard, and search for the motherboard manual in the internet if you don't have one.. in the manual search about the power pin connections and you will see where to connect those wires into the pin..TY
Motherboard layout is on Pg. 5
Front Panel Connector: FP1 (Please refer to the 18th item of motherboard layout.) This motherboard includes one connector for connecting the front panel switch and LED indicators.
Close up of FP1 found on pg. 15
If I can be of more service, just post & let me know how thing go.
