The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the main wires from the Front panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

Looking at the Front Panel header it is parallel to the outside edge on the bottom/right of the motherboard.

13 pin header.
6 across the Top row with 1 pin missing, 7 across the Bottom row.

Top row is numbered EVEN
Starting on LEFT side coming across to the Right, Top row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, No Pin, 12, and 14.

Pins 2 and 4 have a Green area
Pins 6 and 8 have a Red area
No Pin 10.
Pins 12, and 14 have a Yellow area

Bottom row is numbered ODD.
Starting on LEFT side coming across to the Right, Bottom row;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, and 13.

Pins 2 and 4 have a Green area
Pins 6 and 8 have a Red area
No Pin 10.
Pins 12 and 14 have a Green area.

A) Pins 2 and 4 in the Green area (Top left) are for the Power On LED
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the Power On LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 6 and 8 in the Red area are for the Power On switch.

C) Pins 12 and 14 are N/C. Not Connected

D) Pins 1 and 3 in the Yellow area, are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 5 and 7 in the Purple area, are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

F) Pins 9, 11, and 13 are N/C.
(Pin 9 is 5 Volts DC. Used by the factory for testing)

Regards,
joecoolvette

(I thought the internal speaker was that round little 'buzzer', below the bottom white PCI slot, (PCI 2), and close to the edge of the motherboard )

SOURCE: mismatch connection,plug vs pin after swithing motherboard

Hi there.
On the motherboard look for the front panel, it should be marked PWR and coloured green, also the plug that connects to it should be marked PWR_SW.
Have a look at these pictures for an idea >>>>>>

SOURCE: Dead Acer desktop

Hi, "No fan, no hard drive, no noise" means the motherboard is not getting any power which is kinda out of sync because you are getting a power on light indicator. To confirm if your power supply is ok, check if the fan inside the power supply is working. you can look at the back of the casing, if it is turning then psu is ok. Try to reseat the power connector from the psu to the motherboard, some of the pins may not be in perfect contact but others are that's why the led lights up, but the mb is still dead. Please let me know how it works out for you. Regards.

Page 1-6 (16 of 62) shows the Motherboard Layout.

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 connect to, is the Front Panel header.

Motherboard installed in computer case; Processor to Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, white PCI slots to the Bottom;

the Front Panel header is below the bottom white PCI slot, and next to the bottom edge of the motherboard.

F_PANEL
4 pins across the Top row, (Then no pin)
5 pins across the Bottom row.

1.10.2 Internal Connector section - Page 1-26 (36 of 62)

8. System panel connector (10-1 pin PANEL)

Pins aren't numbered, I'm going to number them;

Pins across the Top row are numbered EVEN.
Pins across the Bottom row are numbered ODD.

Starting on the LEFT side going towards the Right; Top row,
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

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

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light)
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

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

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. 5 Volt power reserved for the factory.

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

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

F) There is NO Pin 10. Just a flat spot.

The small 4-pin header immediately to the LEFT, is for an internal speaker. Used to hear BIOS Beep Codes. The computer's way of telling you something is wrong, and an area to look into for it.

The Front Panel USB header is listed, and Firewire ports. (1394a)

Power front panel conectors on acer 915m08


This Foxconn 915M08-G-8KS motherboard made for Acer Veriton desktop computers?

http://www.sella.co.nz/general/computers/components/motherboards/other-motherboards/b1jnj6/

Do not know what the Front Panel header pinout is.

(Front plastic part of computer tower is the Front Panel.
Area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the wires (Cables) from the Front Panel connect to, is the Front Panel header )

CAN see by clicking on - View full size image - that the Front Panel header is to the Top Left corner of the motherboard, by the CMOS battery.
(View of mobo is upside down, in relation to how it actually sits in the computer tower case)

Shows me it is just the normal two rows of contact pins used in a LOT of desktop computer mobo's. (MOtherBOard)

If it were I, I would use one of the LED lights connected to two wires, and touch across each two sets of pins.

Looking at the motherboard as it sits in the computer case, there is a row of pins on Top, and a row of pins on Bottom.

In your mind start at the LEFT side of the pins at the TOP.
Number them from Left to Right.
Example, Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

Now number the pins on the Bottom, from Left to Right,
Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10.

Computer plugged into power, touch the two wires of the LED light, to Pins 1 and 2.
Computer doesn't start? (Power Supply turns on)
Go to the next set of pins.

I am willing to bet Pins 5 and 6 turn the Power Supply on.
No? Keep experimenting.

What will happen if you touch the WRONG pins?
N-O-T-H-I-N-G
You will NOT hurt the motherboard.

When you get to the correct pins, the Power Supply will turn on.
These pins are for the Power On switch.

Now go back through the pins with the Power Supply on, but DO NOT touch the pins that turned the Power Supply on.

When the LED light STAYS on, you have the pins for the Power On LED light.

If the LED light BLINKS, you have the HarDDrive activity LED light.

If Windows starts to load, and you touch the Restart switch pins, the computer will restart over again, and Windows will load again.

(IF this computer has a Restart switch. I do NOT use one, even for the older computers. Just press CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys at the SAME TIME, to restart the computer, or use the Task Manager option)

One pin left all by itself? That is for 5 Volts, and only used by the factory. Leave it unconnected.

There may also be a blank spot on the Front Panel header, where it looks like a pin is missing. This is the KEY pin, and is not used.
It is just to orient where the other pins are.

Worried about getting shocked?
There may be a small spark, as you connect the wires, I will gramnt you that.
But the voltage is 5 VOLTS DC.
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 VOLTS DC.

The harmful AC voltage is contained in the metal enclosure, of the Power Supply. Can't get you unless you pour water on it close up, or stick a metal rod through one of the ventilation holes, in the Power Supply enclosure.

Regards,
joecoolvette

By the by. You could be a lot of people's hero, if you came back, and posted the pins for what they do. Post in a Comment.

The Picture below shows you the locations of the places to put those wires are in relation to your motherboard. In yellow is the power switch and such. and the audio connection is in red.
avatar23454_9.jpg

The Pin layout for the power and other connector are as follows:
avatar23454_10.jpg

the layout for the audio header is as follows: avatar23454_8.jpg

To install the cable that connects a front panel audio solution to the front panel audio header, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off all peripheral devices connected to the computer. Turn off the computer and disconnect the AC power cord.
  2. Locate the front panel audio header (J8A1).
  3. Remove the three jumpers from the header (this disables the back panel audio connectors).
  4. Install a correctly keyed and shielded front panel audio cable.
  5. Connect the audio cable to the front panel audio solution.

To restore back panel operations follow these steps:
1. Remove the front panel audio cable. 2. Install a jumper on pins 5-6 (rear R channel). 3. Install a jumper on pins 9-10 (rear L channel). 4. Install a jumper on pins 1-2 (mic). 5. Replace the cover.

How to connect the front panel sould device?


Do you mean speaker or front panel audio? The front panel audio connector is located at the rear of the board, behind the PCI connectors - the speaker connections are in the panel connector block (2x10 pin header) located at the front left of the board.

With the board in it's normal position, the speaker pins are on the right hand side of that block, on the pin nearest the front and the one 3 positions behind that

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!
