I am going to be fitting a new motherboard, and I am worried about fitting in the power and the wires? Any advice??

There are only a few things that must be carefully observed when changing out motherboards. The first is to ensure that the mounting lugs match up with the mounting holes on the new board. Remove any that don't, otherwise they may short out the motherboard. The new motherboard will come with a book that will show the external connections that must be made from the case to the motherboard. Most cases have labeled plugs that will correspond to the information in the manual. There are two plugs that can be confused - Power Switch and Power LED. Power switch is used to turn on the machine, Power LED goes to the green light on the front of the case. Alos, the HDD LED and Power LED connections are polarized, meaning they have a + and a - wire. The Power LED wires on most cases will be green and white with the green wire being the +. The HDD wires on most cases will be Red and White with the Red being the +. If you get them reversed, it will not harm the machine, but the LED will not work and you will have to turn the plug around. The plugs for the power switch, reset switch and speaker (optional) are not position dependent and cannot be installed backwards. The large power connector to the motherboard is keyed and cannot be installed backward. They can, however be very difficult to connect fully and may required forceful pressure to seat. If this is the case, place something firm, but non-conductive under the edge of the motherboard below the socket to prevent cracking the motherboard. Also, while this may seem silly, some people accidentally do it, so I'll say it here, do NOT have the power supply plugged in when making any connections to the motherboard or when installing or removing any expansion cards.

I disconnected my MSI G31M3 V2 mother board to clean my cpu but now i forgot how to connect the wires onto the motherboard?

Hello sdheape, since most "Motherboards are {Setup} the same way, I found a "Website" that may give you a little help, in remembering the "Wiring" connections. I do not know, or can see your Motherboard; so the next best thing is a 'picture.' "I hope this information is helpful? thanks for using FixYa, paul7of9." Click here:

On/off switch

Usually the power on button only has two wires. Then you have HDD led leads, reset leads, power led leads etc. These are all separate wires that fit onto separate pins in the Jpanel1 (front panel header).

Could be that the really old emachines grouped all these wires and made them into a plug to fit their own style motherboards.

If this is the case then that connector would not be on your newer motherboard, and it would have that Jpanel1 instead.

Hope this helps as I'm not very familiar with the old emachines.

Old case new motherboard

You could get it to work by hooking the wiring as you say, But you will be better off with a new case set up for the newer M-board.

Connector pulled off power buton wires

Hi ford, the most common case colored wires used for negative - is white. The colors blue, red, green are usually positive +. The internal speaker though it uses a 4 pin connector only plugs onto the 2 end pins. Black is connected to negative - pin & red is connected to + positive pin. (Depending on the MB model).
All these case LED's use 5volts DC. If you make a boo-boo, don't freak out. You can usually shut down the system & turn the connector 180 & re-connect it with out hurting the board. Suggest you connect 1 at a time & check in-between each.

Still having trouble, include the name & model number of the MB.
Good luck!

Hi, I assume you are refering to the plug wires from the case to the motherboard. There is no adaptor because most motherboards have a slightly diferent layout The speaker wire and plug is usualy on a spread plug, sometimes the led and switch plugs can be also on a spread plug patern, If this is your problem then get a very small set of side cutters, toenail cutters will do, and very carefully cut the plug to seperate the two individual plugs, then just plug the wires onto the pins, Turn them side ways so they do not interfere with each other.

Does the system not even start up the power supply? That most likely means you've wired up your power button incorrectly. Also it could be possible that you're grounding the motherboard to the case. Make sure it is screwed onto the case correctly.
