Can't help you.









OH, I'm just KIDDING!

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

On the motherboard the Front Panel header is marked as PANEL1.
Scroll the page down, until you come to Motherboard layout.
Click on the + sign to the left of it.

Shows an illustration of the motherboard.
Bottom/Right corner is PANEL1. The black rectangle that is sitting vertically, in the motherboard photo.

Motherboard installed in computer case, the Front Panel header is two columns of contact pins.
FOUR on the Right side, FIVE on the Left side.

I don't know the actual numbering of the pins, so I'm going to number them myself;

Starting on the Left side at the Top, going down,
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

Starting on the Right side at the Top, going down,
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED (Light)
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. If not, do not connect to them.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. It was a +5 Volt power for the factory.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED (Light)
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the Power 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) NO pin 10, just a blank spot.

How to find out what wires are what, in that Front Panel harness connector?

Follow the wires from the connector, up to the Front Panel.

Front Panel removed it is easier to see where the wires go.
You can follow the color code of the wires, and see which twisted pair go up to the Power On switch.

You can also see which ones go to the Power On LED.
(Light Emitting Diode, so it is a light)

Reset switch, (IF there is one), same thing.

The only pair of wires that will be left is the HDD LED wires.
HarDDrive activity LED.

The 9-pin plug will have to be CAREFULLY cut apart. Separate the wires, AND their metal terminals. (WATCH your fingers!)

How to wire front panal


You will need to open the computer case and check that the cables that run from the actual power button to the motherboard are plugged into the proper spot on the motherboard. Sometimes reseating the cable can fix this issue.

I think this is the link to your motherboard documentation: http://www.via.com.tw/download/mainboards/3/4/p4mapro533_r100.pdf

Check the page 2-14 or 2-15 and see if that helps you to identify the actual connection for your power switch.

Mercury Motherboard PI845GLM-L manual needed for wire connections... please help me


If my information is correct;

Orient the motherboard so that we are both looking at it in the same direction,
Processor to the top, Ram Memory slots to the right, white PCI slots to the bottom.

The front plastic panel of your computer that has the Power On button, Harddrive activity LED light, and Power On LED light, is the Front Panel.

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

The Front Panel header is all the way down on the right corner. Panel 1.

The Front Panel header, or Panel 1, is a rectangular block that is positioned lengthwise, across the bottom of the motherboard.

There are 4 pins across the Top, and 5 pins across the Bottom.

The pins are numbered.
They are numbered Even across the Top row.
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. (There is NO Pin 10. Just a blank spot)

They are numbered Odd across the Bottom row.
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light. (HDD LED)
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire. ( + )
{ Pin 2 is for the Negative wire. ( - ) }

If the LED light is dim when operating, turn the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, (Reset button), IF a Reset switch is used.
Pin 5 is for the Negative wire

C) Pin 9 is RVSD_DNU
Reserved Do Not Use.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.

If the LED light is dim turn the wires around.

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

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.

Front Panel to Board. Color Matching of Wires where there are no Marked Connectors from the Front Panel ?


You can download the manual for your motherboard from Gigabyte here. This will show you the pinout for the front panel connector. If there are no marked connectors on the wires from the front panel, you'll need to remove the panel and follow the wires back to the switches and LEDs. It's usually not difficult to do this as the panel is normally held on with a few screws or simply snaps onto the case.

Good luck! Hope this has helped you, and thanks for using Fixya!

Front panel Mic not working when connected to Mother Board


Yeah,sounds like the case wasn't designed for that board. Just carefully double check the pins in the manual for the board. If you don't have the manual,check the asus site.
