Assuming that the computer is laying down on it's right side, and you are viewing the F panel (the front panel header) from the right side of the motherboard (the bottom of the computer), pin 1 is on the bottom left of the F panel, pin 2 is on the top left, pin 9 is on the lower right, and pin 10 is on the top right (no actual pin)...

1 HD_LED_P Hard disk LED (+) 2 FP PWR/SLP *MSG LED (+)
3 HD_LED_N Hard disk LED (-)
5 RST_SW_N Reset Switch (-)
7 RST_SW_P Reset Switch (+)
9 RSVD Reserved
4 FP PWR/SLP *MSG LED (-)
6 PWR_SW_P Power Switch (+)
8 PWR_SW_N Power Switch (-)
10 Key No pin

Usually the wires and the pins are color coded, (the colored ones being positive.) Sometimes the connections are written in very small abbreviations on the motherboard.

Hello,

There should be markings on the motherboard and it should also show you in the manual the way it goes.

Here is a link that also shows the default configuration of the power, reset, hdd led etc.: http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa177/glecakes/computerProblems/MBinstructions.jpg

Normally on the cords from the case (if they have labelling on the plastic end) the labelling will always face out (so you can read it when its plugged in)

I hope this helps

Have a great day!

How do i restore a diablotek elite atx mid tower to factory settings


Cases don't have "factory settings." This sounds like a problem with the motherboard configuration. Make sure to re-check all your pin connectors leading to USB, Audio, and HD. Also, you may need to remove the MB to check if there's any damage, and to be sure that you don't have a short somewhere.

I once had something similar happen to me. Triple check to see that all connections are secure to the motherboard - a loose 20 pin ATX cable was the culprit in my case.

I need a motherboard that will fit in a Raidmax ATX1072BP Mid Tower ATX Computer Case!


Most desktop computer cases have a range of standard mount holes, standard offs.
I suggest you select a motherboard that suits your requirements.
To be sure that the motherboard will fit your case, take the motherboard mount base with you to the computer shop and place the motherboard of your choice on the base to see if the mounting holes line up.
You may need to upgrade the switch mode power supply to a higher power unit if the total power requirements is near the maximum the existing unit can deliver.

Need to know which style of m b I have is it an atx


The difference between ATX and MicroATX is the size. An ATX board will usually have 6-7 slots to add cards like video, network or sound cards. An ATX board will also usually not have a video port on the board. A MicroATX board will usually have only 3-4 slots to add cards into it, at least one of which being dedicated to AGP or PCI Express Video cards.
To answer your question: That computer uses a MicroATX board. A Micro ATX board will most likely work in any PC Case whereas an ATX board requires an ATX size case (Mid or Full size Tower).

Pc tower motherboard upgrade


you can put in any new micro-atx motherboard no problem. I can be 100% sure if the case is Atx full size- best way to check is to see how many pci expansion slots are available at the back of the case. Any Atx case can hold micro-atx mobo's but a micro atx case wont hold atx mobo.
