Look on google for a schematic, or a manual for your mobo model. If you don't have any luck then try just a general search for other motherboard schematics/manuals and you can try their setups.

Msi ms 7297 ver.2.1 front panel help


With the motherboard in the case and the back of the case away from you the front panel pins are on the front left of the motherboard. They will have simple labels;

PWR power
RST reset
HLED hard dive LED
PLED power LED
You can get it wrong without breaking it so just keep trying until the right buttons and lights work.

Installed mother to new tower case and pwr sw | hd led | reset | power led connecting to my board is the Intel dq67sw 155 matx motherboard need accurate dir to connect these please help


info found at http://downloadmirror.intel.com/19707/eng/DQ67SW_ProductGuide01_English.pdf
Front Panel Header Pin info for DQ67SW. They should be color coded too. 1 Hard disk LED + orange
2 Power LED+ green
3 Hard disk LED - orange
4 Power LED- green 5 Reset Switch - blue
6 Power switch + red
7 Reset switch + blue 8 Power switch - red
9 Power Out (do not use)
10 No pin
NOTE When connecting individual wires from your chassis front panel to the front panel header, be sure to observe the connection polarity. Positive wires are usually solid color and negative wires are usually white or striped.
There is also an alternative pin header if you have a power wire that uses a 3 pin connector instead of a 2 pin connector. It is the 3 pins just past pin 9, and it should be missing the pin in the middle of the 3 pin block. The pin closest to pin 9 is the power led + and the furthest from pin 9 is the power led -.
if you need clarification, check out page 50 of the manual posted above at intel.com

Unable to find the power switch to connect to


If you no longer have the manual for you're Intel D815EEA motherboard, open the link provided and download it; http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=17793&ProdId=385&lang=eng
You will also need Adobe reader installed to view the manual; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
Read over pages 65 to 68.
Once completed turn to page 68 Figure 23. Front Panel connectors. Figure 23 shows two views.
View - (left figure), shows J9C1 as you look down at the front panel pins. The right figure will not be needed. Connect each jumper or each pair as shown.
Wire colors are important and do vary from case to case. The common color of each pair will most likely be used for negative. Wire colors such as blue, light blue, green, light green, red and light red are commonly used as positive.
Pin 1 will be positive and pin 3 will be negative. This is letter - C. Hard drive activity LED.
Pin 2 is positive and pin 4 is negative. Case power LED, and so forth.
As mentioned on page 65, the case front panel pins use 5 volts DC. If you make a mistake and place a jumper backwards (No LED light), just power off the switch on the back of the power supply and correct the jumper by turning it 180 deg. If you’re case’s LEDs do not light up than you will need to connect letter G and letter H. The electronic circuits under the motherboard should supply all 16 motherboard pins with the 5 volt DC and ground needed.

Connecting front panel wiring to INTEL 845GRG Motherboard


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!

How to hook up the front panel switch for a Quicksilver2-cmt motherboard


You first need to know the make and model number of the motherboard. Most mobo's have the make and model printed on the board itself, other times there will be a sticker.

locate these and let me know what make and model and i can do my best to provide you with the manual.

Thanks,
