I assembled my PC but not the order of cable Power, Reset, letf, I say as pudes are located, plis

The connectors you are referring to, are the Front Panel connectors. The wires come from the Front Panel, where your Power On button is.

The pins on the motherboard are called Headers.

Your Power On switch, (It's behind that button), the Reset switch, Harddrive Activity Lamp, (Light), and so on, connect to the Front Panel headers on the motherboard.

That explained, let's continue;
This is in reference to the MSI K9N6SGM-V motherboard. If this is not the model of your MSI motherboard, come back with an additional comment, and state the Model Number.

The link below is to MSI Support, and the download page for the ->motherboard manual. It is a Zip file. I'll explain how to open that file.

(Copy and paste the above link into your address bar, then press the Enter key)

Under the Download heading on the right, click on ->
(It's in Blue)
On the next page I recommend clicking on -> U.S, in the blue button.
A small window will pop-up. Left-click on the small empty circle to the right of -> Save.
Now, if you do not have your downloads set to go to your My Documents folder, (Start>My Documents), this will go to your desktop screen.
Minimize all windows that are open, to see your desktop screen.

On your desktop screen you will see a new yellow folder, with ->, underneath it.
Double-click on it. In the next window go up to the top left, and click on -> Extract all files. In the next window click on ->Next, then click on Next again.
(Same thing if it's in your My Documents folder)

Now click on-> Finish. You will now see a PDF file with -> 7309v.1.1(G52-73091X2).pdf
Double-click on that file name.
You will now be looking at the Motherboard Manual, for your MSI motherboard.

Page 7 shows your Front Panel headers. There are two of them. JFP1, and JFP2. (Junction Front Panel 1, and Junction Front Panel 2)

JFP1 is on the bottom right. There are 5 rows of 2 pins each. The pins go down in a column. There is NO pin on the top Left of the column.

JLPC1 is a header to the immediate Left of JFP1. (It has 7 rows of 2 pins, but 1 pin is missing 3 over from the right side, and on top) Disregard the JLPC1 header. The JFP2 header is to the Left of the JLPC1 header.
It has 5 rows of 2 pins, with NO pin in the bottom right corner.

At the very bottom of Page 13 it shows you where your Front Panel connectors go.
(When I refer to the page numbers, look at the very top of the PDF file in the Square box. The Square box is to the right of the Blue Down Arrow.
I am not referring to the page number on the page itself)

Use the Additional Comments if you have further questions about this.

The motherboard in your computer is an MSI MS-7145, which is also called RS480M. You can download a copy of the manual here. The front panel connections are on page 2-20.

Looking at the header JFP1, pins 1 through 9 (odd numbers) are the front row, pins 2 through 10 are the back. Pin 10 is the missing pin. The power switch connects to pins 6 and 8. The power LED connects to pins 2 and 4. The HDD LED connects to pins 1 and 3. The reset button, if used, connects to pins 5 and 7.

Power switch,reset switch,power led connections to motherboard?

Hi ramjet007;

This is strange because MSI doesn't have information on the 7548, since it was made directly for HP. Here is a diagram of another MSI similiar and usually they have their pins on their jumpers pretty much the same. You would use JFP1, And Pin's 1&3 would be the hard drive, 2 & 4 would be the LED, 6 & 8 would be the power switch, and 5&7 would be the reset switch. I know your motherboard is setup differnently, but your JFP1 should be in the right hand corner all by itself.

Front Panel Connectors: JFP1 & JFP2

Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating.

Thanks Mark

Need manual to put wiring back correctly please ta muchly

This is MSI/Support and the download page for the MSI MS-7104 V1.0
Motherboard Manual in Zip file form,
Granted, it's not the 2.0 version, but the Front Panel header is the same.

Click on the button with the countries name that is closest to you. I clicked on U.S.
If you don't have your downloads set, to download to your My Documents folder, it will go to your desktop.

Double-click on the file name. You will see the Extraction Wizard come up.

Go up to the top left, and click on Extract All Files.
Now you will see a PDF file on your desktop screen, with the file name under it. Double-click on this PDF file.

After you have opened it, and everything is there, you can go back to the Zip file on your desktop screen, right-click on it, and delete it.
Delete it from your Recycle Bin also, or it will be taking up needless room on your harddrive.

Orient the view of the motherboard, so we are both looking at it the same way.
The processor is at the Top/Middle, and to the very bottom right, is the JFP1 header. (Connector on a motherboard is called a header)
Over to the left of the JFP1 header is the JFP2 header. Looks to be about one inch over from the JFP1 header.

We'll start with the JFP1 header.
The JFP1 header has 4 pins across the Top. Then there is a place for a pin. No pin for where no.5 would be.
The JFP1 header has 5 pins across the Bottom.

The pins across the Top are numbered -> 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10, but there is NO, No.10 pin.

The pins across the Bottom are numbered -> 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power LED light. It doesn't have which pin is the Positive (+) but I suspect it's Pin 2.

Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. Doesn't matter which way they go, it's a switch.

Pins 1 and 3 are for the HDD activity light. I suspect Pin 1 is the Positive (+) connection.

Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch. (If you have a Reset button. If not, don't sweat it)

Pin 9 is not used.

JFP2 header:
The JFP2 header has 4 pins across the Top. They are numbered
2, 4, 6, and 8.

There are 3 pins across the Bottom.
They are numbered 1, 3, and 5. There is no No.7 pin.

Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8 are used for an internal speaker. This speaker would be used to hear any BIOS Beep Codes. I suspect No. 2 pin is the positive (+)

Pins 1, 3, and 5 are used for the Power LED. I suspect what they're indicating, is an LED used to show Turbo Boost. In actuality I'm not sure. If your Power LED has a connector with three socket holes, it goes here. If your Power LED has two socket holes, it goes to the JFP1 header, and to Pins 2 and 4.

I need to know the sequence on how to connect my Power LED, Reset Switch, HDD LED, and M/B Switch up correctly. I have an MS-7142 VER:1 Can you help me?

Hi carlmtclem, your not alone when it comes to hooking up the right led connector to the MSI MB. Firstly, you need to know what wire color is positive & which is negative. Most commonly the color white is ground/negative. Wire colors do vary from case to case. So look at your case led wires. Which ever color is common for each 2-pin connector, is negative. (Except the speaker wire).
All other colors are positive.
(The speaker wire color for negative is usually black & red is positive).
Your MSI board has two separate sets of pins.
JFP2 is used for the speaker only. Do not connect the power led there.

Pin one for JFP1 is shown in the manual. Pin 1 is positive & pin 3 is negitive for the HDD-LED, ECT.

Thats it.
Need more information?
Post here.
Good luck carlmtclem!
Thank you for using fixya.

Lost in the wiring :(

Hi bossman9628A, normally its the wire colors that messes everyone up when trying to connect the front case wires to the motherboard. The MSI RX480 Neo2-F, AKA MS-7151 MB is no different but does use a second set of pins just to help you get more confused.
Gather up all your case wires. You'll notice there is one color that is common. Chances are that color is white & is being used for the ground wire. Other colors like blue, green, red, light blue, light green & light red ECT are used for positive. The speaker uses black for ground/negative.
So looking at JFP1 at pin 1 is positive +. Pin 3, which is to the right of pin 1 is negative -.
The manual does show you which pin is negative & which is positive. Pin 1 = (HD_LED_P). The _P stands for positive.
Pin 3 = (HD_LED_N). The _N stands for negative. Do not connect the Power led at JFP2. Keep the power led connected at JFP1.
Do connect the case speaker at JFP2. Most cases do use 2-pin connectors but others use 3 & 4 pin connectors. If your case is such you can remove a wire from a connector by using a decent needle. There is a small black tab that you can pull towards your self while pulling the wire out. You can than slide the wire back into the connector where you need it. You'll know the wire is inserted correctly because you'll hear or feel it snap into the connector. If by sme chance you get a led backwards, don't freak out. The leds use 5v DC. Just shut down the system & turn that led 180deg & reconnect it.

Good luck bossman9628A!
