How to connect the power led,power sw,hdd led on e-machine t2240


Apologizes your question hasn't received a solution until now. I have been 'away from my desk' for a while.

The eMachines T2240 desktop pc uses an Intel D845GVSR motherboard.
So let's go to Intel Support for more information, and to the specific product download page for the Intel D845GVSR motherboard,

Intel Desktop Board D845GVSR Product Guides


On this page left-click right on the blue title -
Intel Desktop Board D845GVSR Product Guide (PDF)

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using has Adobe Reader on it which uses PDF files.
After you have downloaded the PDF file go to the top left and hover your mouse cursor on the rectangular icon. (To the left of the Up/Down arrows and Page: )

Hovering your mouse cursor over this icon will briefly reveal -
Toggle Sidebar. Click on this icon.
Now click on the icon to the immediate right of it. (Show Document Outline)

Scroll the Show Document Outline sidebar down until you see the heading - Connecting Internal Headers -
Now click on the heading immediately underneath it -
Connecting the- Front Panel Header -

[The front of your computer is the Front Panel. The area of connecting pins on the motherboard for the Front Panel is the Front Panel Header ]

On Page 11 in the Product Guide we see that S designates the Front Panel Header.
On Page 31 in the Product Guide it shows the Front Panel Header pinout. (The Front Panel Header is designated by C in the illustration)
Again on Page 32, it shows where the Front Panel cables connect to.

In case you are not able to view the Product Guide;

Viewing the motherboard installed in the computer case, the Front Panel Header lays parallel to the bottom of the motherboard, at the Bottom Right.

It is rectangular in shape and has 9 pins.
4 pins along the Top, and 5 pins along the Bottom.

The pins are numbered Even along the Top row;
Starting from the Left side of the Front Panel Header going to the right;
Pins 2, 4, 6,and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

The pins are numbered Odd along the Bottom row;
Starting from the Left going to the right;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the Harddrive Activity LED.
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire. Pin 3 for the Ground wire.
In case the HDD LED is dim when the HarDDrive is active, switch the wires around. (Computer off and Anti-Static Precautions used)

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.
Pin 5 is for the Ground wire.

C) Pin 9 is for 5 volt ( + ) power. Not Used.
(Usually the motherboard manufacturer uses this pin to test the motherboard)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED.
-> Believe Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If PWR LED is dim when computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

There is No Pin 10.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Motherboard


The front of your computer is the Front Panel

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires from the Front Panel go to; is the Front Panel header.

What you are asking for is a Front Panel header pinout.

I do not have the exact Front Panel header pinout, for your motherboard.
Tell you what I do have though..........

Looking at the Front Panel header on the Ebay link, for the Winfast 760m02-GX-6LRS; the Front Panel header looks to be below the CMOS battery, and close to the Bottom edge of the motherboard.

(Motherboard installed in computer case)

Black rectangular strip of plastic, with contact pins sticking up.
Also looks to be a GENERAL set-up for all Winfast motherboards.
(COULD be wrong here)

This is what I am referencing off of,

http://www.devhardware.com/c/a/Motherboards/Foxconn-Winfast-NF4SK8AA8EKRS-Motherboard-Review/3/

Go to the third photo down. Here you see the Front Panel wires, connected to the Front Panel header; on the motherboard.
(Below round CMOS battery)

Note that the contact pin on the Bottom row, and all the way to the Right; is NOT being used.
(I'm using a 26 inch HDTV as my primary monitor, so it may be easier for me to see)

Now look at this Front Panel header pinout, for another Winfast motherboard,

http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f15/winfast-mobo-front-panel-connection-558456.html

(Scroll down a little)

PWRLED is for the Power On LED (Light)
PWRSW stands for Power On switch
HD-LED stands for the HarDDrive activity LED (Light)
RESET stands for a Reset switch, IF USED.

Note where it has a Positive ( + ) sign, next to the pin for the PWRLED.
This is the pin the + wire from the Power On LED connects to.
It is the SAME for every LED that connects to the Front Panel header.

Let's number the contact pins, to make the explanation easier;
Starting at the Left side, Top row; going towards the Right;
Pins 2, 4, 6 and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

Starting on the Left side, Bottom row; going towards the Right;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

Pin 2 is for the Positive wire.
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire
If the LED's are dim, (PWRLED, and HDD LED), OR; the LED's do not light up, switch the wires around.

(Pin 9 is N/C.........Not Connected. This is probably a 5 Volt test point, that was used by the factory)

There is a method you can use though, and find out what the individual contact pins are, in the Front Panel header;

Use an LED with two wires

Computer (Power Supply) plugged into power, go along the top row, and touch two pins at a time, with the two wires of the LED.

Example; Pins 2 and 4, as shown in the pinout.
Did the Power Supply come on?
No?

Go to the next two pins. Try again.
When the Power Supply comes on, you naturally know that is the two contact pins; for the Power On switch.
DO NOT touch them again. In fact connect the Power On switch wires.

Power Supply on, computer running;
Now go back along again;
1) LED light blinks?
You have the HarDDrive activity LED, contact pins.
2) LED light stays on?
You have the Power On LED, contact pins.
3) Computer restarts?
Those are the Reset switch, contact pins.

4) Nothing happens?
May be contact pins for a speaker, or contact pins that are not used.
(Speaker is for hearing BIOS Beep Codes.
You have a Piezo buzzer, to the Left of the CMOS battery; for that)

Post back in a Comment, as to the results.

If possible, I would like to ask upon you; to post the Front Panel header pinout; when you find what it is.

That way when a person in the future also has this same problem; the solution will be posted on the internet, for them to find.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I have a gigabyte ga 81865gme775 mother board, can you give me the front pannel connection details


hello jknr09

my name is ausi

i can not find your motherboard on gigabyte web site. however the boards nowadays are standard as far as front panel header goes.

on gigabyte mother board you will see the hedae as two rows of pins like this.

....
..... ....

the bottom row first 4 pins are the speaker pins. the next single pin is void the next two are reset switch. the last two are hard disk lead.
the top row first two pins are message lead (usually not used). the next two pins are power switch exactly opposite the reset switch.

the power lead connection on gigabyte boards are a three pin header next to the front panel header.

hopefully this is helpful.

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!
Need more information/questions post here.

Problem with microphone


most of the old motherboards dont support the audio and mic port to work both in back side(back panel header) and front side (front panel header)simultaneously...

most of the old motherboards dont support multi streaming so you cant make both the back panel header and front panel header to work at a time ie i mean you cant connect both panel header at a time ...

you can just refer to your motherboard manual for the detailed information about it ..

in your motherboard if there is any option to connect the front panel header to the motherboard other than the back panel header you can connect it to that the detailed pin information will be given in the motherboard manual ..

if you dont have the option in the motherboard to connect the front panel header seperately then you must remove the pins connected from the back panel header and you must insert the front panel header pins .
this will disable your back panel audio ,mic,linein functionalities but you will be able to connect in front panel header , this front panel header will work ..

if the motherboard is not compatible then the system assembler will leave the front panel wires not connecting to motherboard ..

like this only one panel can work at a time ,
but in the latest motherboards the multi streaming technology has been introduced so both the panels can work at a time and can play different audio on 2 different panels ...

thank you
bye
any doubts you can reply me
i am always here to assist you
please rate my solution
have a nice day
