Question about Motherboards

1 Answer

Small single post connetors and USB connector

System Board: A Open MX46-533V. Client asked me to repair computer's Front Panel USB connectors and sound. Running Win XP HE with a P-4 processor running at 2.79 Mhz. System has 2 GB PC-2700 RAM.

There are numerous little single post connecting wires hanging loose inside the cabinet! They are labeled but, while the System Board provides a number little pins for them to go on, I have no clue as to what goes where. The location of a schematic would be of great benefit. Thanks,

MX46-633V CONNECTING FRONT USB


I believe you're referring to the AOpen MX46-533V

The Front Panel USB header is Blue in color, and located in-between the white No.3 PCI expansion slot, and bottom edge of the motherboard;

http://www.ebay.com/itm/AOpen-Model-MX46-533V-Socket-478-Desktop-System-Motherboard-/130774572519?pt=Motherboards&hash=item1e72c59de7

With the motherboard in the installed position;
5 pins across the Top row, 4 pins across the Bottom row.

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

Starting on the Left side coming across to the Right, Top row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10

Starting on the Left side coming across to the Right,
Bottom row;
Pins 1, 3, 5, and 7

There are TWO USB connectors supported off of this USB front panel header.

For one of the USB front panel connectors;

A) Pin 1 is USB PWR 0
Goes to the VCC contact pin on the USB connector.

B) Pin 3 is USB_FP_P0-
Goes to the D- pin on the USB connector.
(Data - )

C) Pin 5 is USB_FP_P0+
Goes to the D+ pin on the USB connector
(Data +)

D) Pin 7 is Ground (GND)
Goes to the Ground (GND) pin on the USB connector

E) No pin 9

F) Pin 2 is USB PWR 0

For the other Front Panel USB connector;

A) Pin 2 is USB PWR 0
Goes to the VCC pin on the USB connector

B) Pin 4 is USB_FP_P1-
Goes to the D- pin on the USB connector

C) Pin 6 is USB FP P1+
Goes to the D+ pin on the USB connector

D) Pin 8 is GND

E) Pin 8 is USB_FP_OC0
Leave unconnected

This is more information on a standard USB connector pinout,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB

( A USB connector, and a USB plug are not wired the same.
The plug is wired backwards from what a connector is.
Otherwise you would have power and signal going to the wrong pins, and burn the USB Front Panel header out on the motherboard )

AOpen MX46-533V motherboard manual, but it is in Japanese.
May be one in English out there.
The Front Panel header pinout, USB header pinout, etc, is easily cross identified,

Where can I find the pin configuration for this motherboard


http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Shared/4006272R/4006272Rnv.shtm

Click on Product Views.
D - CPU Fan Connector (Processor Fan)
F - Main Power Connector

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

G - Floppy Disk Drive Connector
H - Parallel ATA IDE Connector
M - Clear CMOS Jumper
N - Front Audio Connector (Audio ports in Front Panel)
O - S/PDIF Connector
P - System Fan Connector (Computer Case Fan)
Q - IEEE 1394 Connector (Firewire ports in Front Panel)
R - USB Connectors (Front Panel)

S - Front Panel Connector
The front of your computer is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wires go to, is the Front Panel header.
The above is the pinout for the Front Panel header.

T - SATA Connectors
A SATA data connector on the motherboard has 7 contact pins.
Between it, and the SATA power cable, the SATA data cable's connector is shorter in width,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_ports.jpg

Note the L shaped slot in the SATA data cable's connector, at top;
and the corresponding L-shaped locating lug on the motherboard connector, shown at bottom.

SATA power cable general example,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

The SATA power cable's connector has a Lock tab on top. Squeezed down with the thumb tip to release when removing.

Looking at the 6 SATA connectors on the motherboard, you will note they are marked in-between the connectors, and at the outside edge of the motherboard. SATA_1, SATA_3, SATA_5, SATA_2, etc.

If using more than 1 harddrive, the harddrive that has the Operating System, is generally plugged into SATA_1.

The beauty of SATA is however, that you can plug whatever SATA device you want, into whatever SATA connector on the motherboard, and BIOS will find the device.

Mean, for one,that you can plug the harddrive with the O/S into SATA_3, or SATA_6, or SATA_4, etc; and BIOS will still find it.

Scroll down to the photo under the Specifications chart. It's a Top View.
The power cable, and corresponding connector on the motherboard that is Not stated on Gateway Support, is a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

Motherboard in the Top view is shown as it is, when installed in a computer case. Go above the top of the Processor socket to the edge of the motherboard, then over to the left.

Whitish square 4-socket hole connector.
4-pin ATX +12 Volt.

Above the top right corner of the Processor socket, and between the edge of the motherboard is the CPU_FAN connector.

Front Panel header bottom/right corner of motherboard

The four Yellow USB headers are to the left of the Front Panel header.

The Black Firewire (IEEE 1394) header is to the left of the USB headers.

The SYSTEM_FAN white connector is to the left of the Firewire connector.

SPDIF_OUT connector to the left of the System Fan connector.

F_AUDIO red connector to the left of the SPDIF connector

To the right of the Blue and Yellow ram memory slots, is the 24-pin ATX main power cable connector. To the right of it is the Black 34-pin Floppy Drive connector.

Below the Floppy Drive connector is the Blue 40-pin IDE connector.

Plugigng of wire in board


Hello there,


Below is an image of *********** Board with number indication and wiring explanation. From your manual page 1-6 you can see the image below and 1-7 for the connector, jumpers, slots. as indicated in your problem I will only answer problems related to the wirings.


pcsyke_115.jpg

  • For the Front Panel


pcsyke_117.jpg
1. There are 8 wires from the front panel's casing, excluding USB connectors and front audio cable.

2. Just plug the front panel switch headers to the F_Panel main board connectors. 1 & 2 are positive, if the led do not light change polarity but Im sure it will.

Note:The mainboard provides a front panel connector for electrical connection to the front panel switches and LEDs. JFP1 is compliant with Intel® Front Panel I/O Connectivity Design Guide.


  • For the USB connectors


pcsyke_118.jpg

1. If your casing has a USB header on the front bezel you can put it on any connector. You can also purchase a USB module cable or an internal card reader and plug the headers to any of those connectors.


Note: Observe Polarity, do this Vcc, -Data, +Data, Gnd ,(NC) ground is always near to NC.

Plug it at your own risk, reference image are already shown.


  • Front Panel Audio connectors


pcsyke_119.jpg
1. Look for FP_Audio header from your casing and plug it to the connector.

*Asus recommend you connect a high definition front panel audio module to this connector to avail of the motherboard's high-definition audio capability.



Hopefully this information helps.


Thank you for using FixYa.

My daughter broke one of my usb ports in the front of my asus cm1630 how do i get replacment parts can i buy a usb 2 or do i have to buy the whole setup that contains the usb ports and media card slots


USB 2.0 refers to the technology, not the connector itself.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB

Obtain another USB connector, and solder it in?
Sure, maybe. Depends on your de-soldering/soldering skills, and if the circuit board is damaged.

> Physically damaged in that the board is cracked, and circuit traces are ripped loose, (Repairable with a jumper wire, or wires), AND/OR the USB port was fried out (Short Circuit), and it fried out the entire circuit board.

Obtain another circuit board? This would be the way to go IMHO, but try to find one.
You may have luck on Ebay looking at Desktop Computers > Computers for Parts, or the actual circuit board itself, dunno.

Front panel connectors/jacks is not working


OK--usually what you will find from the front is 3 connectors.
One will be a solid block that has one blank hole which is the key. That will plug into the corresponding pins on the motherboard--usually toward the back of the case.
There will be another other wire that terminates in two plastic connectors. These are the USB connectors. Sometimes the connectors are in two parts. One is a 3-hole and one is a 1-hole. Usually you will find two sets as they sort of go together.
The pin configuration on the motherboard looks like this ::::.
The single pin on the end is not used. The other ones are connected with the plastic connector on the first three starting at the left, with the end marked VCC to the left. The fourth pin is the ground which is usually the separate connector.
The second USB connectors are plugged in right next to the first--so each block of pins controls 2 USB ports.
Hope this helps.

Location firewire input port


There isn't one on the back panel. You must connect the USB/1394 bracket that's included with the board to an empty slot on the rear of the computer and hook up its connectors INSIDE the computer to the appropriate headers on the motherboard: the purple firewire connector would connect to the purple header (DUH!) on the RIGHT in the pic below, it's a DOUBLE firewire header and it's the only place this bracket will fit. The yellow USB connector would go to any open USB header on the board (guess what color...) Very simple, really.

1f72ff6.jpg ed2998b.jpg

Optionally if your computer case has a built-in firewire port on the FRONT panel, as most do nowadays, you can connect that to the appropriate header on the board using the already-installed cable that's connected to that front firewire port (connect this one to the purple header on the LEFT, it's just a SINGLE firewire port.)
However, this header's pins will NOT match up properly with almost all case's front-panel firewire connectors. You would most likely have to switch around 2 or 3 of the little wires that go into the connector so that it matches the motherboard's pin-out.

It's clearly labled in the manual for the board, and isn't really all that difficult to switch the wires around, but I would recommend just going with the first option and connect the included bracket to the back since it was designed to go with this board and requires no modification.

Connetors front panel


you will see underneath the panel pins, where they are supposed to go, there will be +HD Led-, in this case it is positive to the left and negative to the right, work out which wire is your positive, usually red.
When you power up check that the Power Light is on and HDD light is flashing, if they arent take the connector out and turn it around.
If this doesnt work please post you Mobo Serial number here

A USB mouse will work but the PS/2 mouse failed. What causes it?


Hi melch, On the PS/2 mouse, chances are that the surface mounted fusible link/resistor supplying the +5VDC is open. It is normally very near the PS/2 port and marked [0] or labeled F???. This can be verified by measuring the absence/presence of +5 at pin 4 of the connector. In some cases, it is the I/O chip that gets damaged. Re "only two(2)USB port" aside from the 2 rear USB ports, the Asus CUV4X-C has another pair of USB connectors that are normally connected to the front panel of the casing. It is located very near the motherboard battery. Re "...prompting...high speed USB port...", normally by updating your OS (say XP to SP2) or downloading/installing latest VIA 4 in 1 Drivers should make your USB 2.0 compatible. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
