Question about Gateway (4000782) Motherboard

1 Answer

I cant get the HDD LED to work... yes it is hooked up right...

I cant get the HDD LED to work... I ordered another board and I have the same problem. I tried using gateway's factory power switch/LED connector with the same result. Can anyone tell me why the HDD LED pin on the motherboard won't come on?

    I know that LED's work like any other diode, that is, current can only flow in one direction... The Pin on the motherboard that should supply the signal is not working... Thanks for trying!

Some of the wires going from the power switch, reset switch, speaker, and LEDs must be attached to the motherboard the correct way. That is, they must not only be placed in the right spot where they need to go, but they also must be connected with positive and negative wires on the right pins.

If your HDD LED is not lighting up when the HDD is "thinking", try reversing the cable where the HDD LED wire plugs in (just flip it so the black wire is where the non-black wire was). I tried to find a good picture of your motherboard to guide you but they were not very helpful. From squinting really hard, I believe the spot they should plug into the board is by the CMOS battery. There might be printed words on the board surrounding the area to connect them that tells you which two pins are for the HDD LED.

One corner of the motherboard will have a grid of pins.
Two adjacent pins will be labelled 'PWR' or 'POWER'.
Two adjacent pins will be labelled 'HD' or 'HDD' or 'HD LED'.

You first need to know the make and model number of the motherboard. Most mobo's have the make and model printed on the board itself, other times there will be a sticker.
