Gateway MB.SD101.001 Pitbull Motherboard


The motherboards are almost always labeled and so are the wires. Colored wires are + and black is -. The LED wires and power button wires can go on either way. HDD LED, PW LED PW SW is the switch. These are very common abbreviations on the motherboard.

Take a decent picture of your mobo pins and I can probably tell you where everything goes.

Gateway 500GR Mother board Connector S Wiring


You are correct so far.

This is a perfect example of using deductive reasoning based on intelligent thought.

'Armed' with that I can see you will go far in life.

Gateway Support > Gateway 500GR Desktop PC > Main Support page,

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/3724/3724nv.shtml

Click on Components in the list.
Scroll down. Under the bold black heading - Motherboards - click on
102007 - Intel (Augsburg) No CPU Motherboard R0

Click on Specifications.
Chipset: Intel 915G Chipset

http://www.ascendtech.us/gateway-augsburg-intel-915g-motherboard_i_mb4gwaugsburg.aspx

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

In the photo the Front Panel header is marked by the letter S.

Let's go to Intel Support, and download the Product Guide for an Intel D915GAV motherboard,

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-012048.htm

Click on the blue -
Intel Desktop Board D915GAV Product Guide - (English) PDF
Scroll your mouse cursor to the bottom/middle of the page, to bring the 'ghosted out' navigation guide into view.

Click on the Adobe PDF icon to the far right.
(When you hover your mouse cursor over it, "Show Adobe Reader toolbar" is briefly shown)

Different design motherboard in the layout of certain headers, and connectors, but same Ol' Front Panel header pinout, Intel uses for 10 pin Front Panel header's.
Whether it is an Intel O.E.M. motherboard, or one they made for a pre-built computer manufacturer.

Front Panel header for Gateway 500GR, is next to the bottom edge of the motherboard, and all the way towards the right.
5 pins across the Top row, 4 pins across the bottom row.

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

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

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

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light Emitting Diode)

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. No Connection. Pin reserved for the factory.
(5 Volts DC)

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

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

F) Again, there is No pin 10.

I'm working on an Emachines T3624 I took out the front panel connectors and I can't remember where the power switch connects to the motherboard. I know the general area but I don't know the exact spot....


The manual can be downloaded here, just click on "drivers and downloads" and follow it out.
http://support.gateway.com/us/en/emac/default.aspx

I was hoping to refer you to the manual to provide a diagram, but the manual does not show the front panel I/O connections, so I'll give you general instructions.

The front panel header is a set of two rows of pins. You may need a magnifying glass and flashlight to see the small print on the motherboard that identifies the pins. Look at your front panel cables and look for the same abbreviations on the circuit board. You should see "pw sw" (power switch), "rst" (reset), HDD (hard drive activity indicator LED), and "pw" (indicator LED that shows that the computer is powered up. There should also be speaker.

Just match the cables to the pins on the motherboard. Polarity ( + or - ) is only important for the LED's ( pw and HDD ) Don't worry, if you connect them wrong, they just won't work, just swap wires.

How to hook up the face plate of a emachine w3400 Wich includes 3 wires 1 power butten and 2 led lights


Look at the pinout of the Front Panel header, of the eMachine W3400's motherboard.

The plastic front of the computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the cables (Wires) from the Front Panel connect to,
is the Front Panel header.

The motherboard for an eMachines W3400 desktop computer is an MSI ms-7145
(Micro Star International)

Orient the motherboard in your view so that we are both looking at it the same way.
Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, white PCI slots (3) to the Bottom.

JFP1 is the Front Panel header.
(Junction Front Panel 1)

JFP1 is on the Bottom Right corner. There are two columns of pins arranged vertically.
(The JFP1 header runs parallel to the Right side of the motherboard)

The Left side column of the JFP1 header is numbered Odd.
Starting at the Top and going Down, the pins are numbered;
1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

The Right side column is numbered Even.
Starting at the Top and going Down, the pins are numbered:
2, 4, 6, and 8.
There is NO Pin 10

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive Activity LED light. (HDD)
If the LED light is dim will operating switch the wires around

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch. (Reset button)
> IF Used

C) Pin 9 is Not used. (NC. No Connection)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light (If dim switch the wires around)

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

Trace the wires back to the Power On switch. Even if it means temporarily removing part of the Front Panel to see.

Same with the LED lights.
See which wires go to the Power On LED, and HDD Activity LED. (Harddrive Activity LED)

Follow the 3 wires, and tell me where they go to on the Front Panel.
USB port?
Memory Card Reader?
Firewire port? (a1394)
