I don't know how to plug in the wires for the ASUS a8n sli deluxe motherboard

Here is the manual for your motherboard (since describing a diagram probably isn't very useful...)

You want to look at pages 27-35, they describe what you need to plug into the motherboard. Basically make sure you have connected:

1) 24-pin power cable (from power supply)
2) 4-pin power cable (for CPU from power supply)
3) Any case fans with 3/4 pin connectors.
3) hard drives (SATA or IDE)
4) USB front panel ports
5) Audio front panel ports
6) Case plugs (power LED, hdd LED, power switch, and reset switch).

Changed the pc case and i can't find power led and hdd led, can you please help me with the labelled motherboard?ASUS P5GD2-TMX/S

Power and HDD LED's are on the front of the computer case. The connectors for them are there and they can only plug in to one place usually if not the board is labeled as you say . You can't hurt it so try plugging them in where they fit.

I am after a circuit board diagram & pic for the P5PE-VM motherboard please??? I am transferring the moterboard from an old case to a newer one, the young fella that owned the computer had changed it...

This Asus Support, and the motherboard manual download page for the Asus P5PE-VM motherboard,

Go down to the heading - Version E2609 (In blue), and click on Global to the right of the green floppy disk icon.

This motherboard manual is in PDF file format.
(As I'm sure you aware of the following sir, just am stating it so that all info is presented)

Your computer has Adobe Reader on it which uses PDF files. (I use Adobe Reader 9)
After you Left-click on the Global server icon, you may not see anything happening for up to 30 seconds. Please be patient as the file is downloading.

Heads up from me;
That was by FAR, the Slowest download I have ever encountered! Don't know if it's on my end, or Asus's servers. Took 10 MINUTES! Usual time, is first page shows at 10 SECONDS, full download at 30 SECONDS. (Tried all three server connections from Asus also. Global (DLM), Global, and China)

Because of this, I'm going to attempt to tell you the Front Panel connections on the motherboard, in case you cannot download this file.

Bear with me;

Orientation of motherboard so we are looking at it the same way.
Processor at top of board, Ram Memory slots to the right, Front Panel header is at extreme bottom right.

There are 4 pins across the top, 5 pins across the bottom.

1.Four pins across the top, starting from Left going Right,

A.Power LED, (+ Positive connection)
B.Power LED, (-Negative connection)
C.Power On Switch (PWR)
D.Power On Switch (Ground)

2.Five pins across the bottom, starting from Left going Right,

A.IDE LED +, (Harddrive activity lamp. Positive connection)
B.IDE LED -, (HDD activity lamp Negative connection)
C.RESET switch: Ground
D.RESET switch: Power
E.No Connection. The fifth pin is not connected

I removed the connections on my motherboard and i forgot the connections of the front panel


on your motherboard you will find these connections (each motherboard varies) just put the corresponding cables to the pins. it will tell you which is which on the end of the cable.


let me know if you get stuck

Need connecton diagram for ASUS P4S-LA motherboard.


if colours don,t match up. your main connectors hdd/pwr/reset remove the front panel on the computer. and check from the switches located on the front panel. or you could use a multimeter and test for continuity. if you have one.
you should have green/white red/white orange/white Or blue white.

Front panel connectors

hi im wesley. ok the power and audio connecters is very simple if you look at the bottom right of the motherboard you will see you can plud them and it says the name of witch is the power and witch is audio and it doesnt realy make a difference witch way you put them in just as long as they are on the right pins. the usb might be a little more tricky unless it says witch connecter is the usb 1&2 then its the same as the power led but if you dont come right i will try to get a diagram for you or draw one up but it might not be as accurate tho as i do not own a asus motherboard but i will do my best.
