Need pic of power hook up to mother board


How about the motherboard manual instead?

http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=P4P800+SE&p=1&os=

To the right of the - Select OS - box, click on the blue Down Arrow.
Click on WinXP

(Doesn't matter which Operating System is chosen, we're just going after the motherboard manual)

Scroll down, click on the + sign to the left of Manual (10)
Scroll down, go to the 4th file down -

Version E1886
P4P800 SE User's Manual English Version E1886

Right underneath this file name click on the Blue - Global

Ignore if you are aware;
This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on Global, it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.

At the Top of the Adobe Reader is the page number box. It is to the right of Page: and the Down Arrow.

You can go page by page to arrive at the page you want, or if you know the page you want; perform this,

1) Put your mouse cursor in the page number box, to the Right of 1
Left-click once. Now backspace the 1 out.

2) Type the page number you want.
3) Press the Enter key

Go to Page 25 - 2.2.3 Motherboard Layout

[Use the Zoom Out icon at top ( - ) by clicking on it, to decrease the view size.
Use the Zoom In icon ( + ) to increase the view size ]

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires from the Front Panel connect to; is the Front Panel header.

Goes by many abbreviations.
Here we see it is PANEL_1
Two rows of 10 contact pins.

Now go to Page 55 - 12. System Panel Connector

I see no numbering system is used, so I will number the pins.
The Top row is numbered EVEN.
The Bottom row is numbered ODD.

Starting on the Top row, going from LEFT to RIGHT,
Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, and 20.

Starting on the Bottom row, going from Left to Right,
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, and 19.

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) Pin 5 is N/C. Not Connected. Don't even know if the pin is there, or just a blank spot. (But you will)

C) Pins 7 and 9 are for a SMI lead.
"System Management Interrupt Lead (2 pin SMI)
The 2-pin connector permits switching to suspend mode, or "GREEN" mode, in which system activity is instantly decreased to save power and to expand the life of certain system components. Attach the case-mounted suspend switch to this 2-pin connector."

Suggest leave alone.

D) Pins 11 and 13 are for the Power On switch.

E) Pin 15 is N/C. (Or again, may not be there)

F) Pins 17 and 19 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

G) Pins 2, 4, and 6 are for a Power On LED. (Light)
A 3-wire Power On LED.

Pin 2 is for a Positive ( + ) wire.
Pin 4 is for a Positive ( + ) wire
Pin 6 is for a Negative ( - ) wire.

This is for a Power On LED that is Dual Color.
Used back in the day when there was Turbo Mode, and Normal Mode.
A farce in reality.
Turbo Mode WAS the normal mode, while Normal Mode was a lesser version.

Usually a Green/Yellow dual color LED.
Green - Turbo, Yellow - Normal.

One side, or can be said as color; of the LED went to Pin 2.
The other side, or other color, went to Pin 4.
Ground (Negative - ) wire goes to Pin 6.

If using a Single color LED, (2-wire), suggest connect Positive ( + ) wire to Pin 2, and Negative ( - ) wire to Pin 6.

H) Pins 8, 10, and 12 are for Bambi to use, when running around without spots...

NO!..............you gonna' believe that, geez?
I just wanted to see if you were following along, after the dual color LED thing.

Pins 8, 10, and 12 are N/C.

I) Pins 14, 16, 18, and 20 are used for a small internal speaker.
Used to hear BIOS Beep Codes.
Pin 14 is for the Positive ( + ) wire
Pin 20 is for the Negative ( - ) wire.

Also uses a 20-pin ATX main power cable, (Right side of Ram Memory slots),

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

,and a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, (Bottom left corner of processor socket),

Front panel connections


I don't find the Front Panel header pinout online, nor do I have an MSI MS-5191 in the shop.

I would suggest using one the LED lights with two wires.
(3-wire is a dual color LED)

There are two rows of pins. Usually the Power On switch, Power On LED, and Speaker; are on the same row.
HarDDrive activity LED, and Reset Switch are on the opposite row.

Speaker has 4-pins designated for it. All the others use 2-pins.
(Unless the PWR ON LED is a dual color jobbie)

Touch two pins next to each other, in the same row; with the 2-wire LED.
Start with finding the Power On switch first.

Usually the top row 1st two pins are Power On LED (Light)
Next in line are the 2 pins for the Power On switch.
Bottom row 1st two pins are usually HarDDrive activity LED (light)
Next 2-pins are usually Reset switch.

May not apply to a motherboard old enough to use a Socket 7 processor socket.
There may be 18 to 20-pins.
Bear in mind that many are not used, and probably 4 are for an internal speaker, for hearing BIOS Beep Codes.
May be two separate Front Panel headers.

Once you find the two contact pins in the Front Panel header, for the Power On switch; I would put the Power On switch wires on.
The small pin connector on the wire/s, will keep you from accidentally touching these two pins again, when the computer is on.

Now you have the two pins for the Power On switch, and the computer is running; then keep touching 2-pins at a time with the LED. (Light Emitting Diode)

LED stays on? You have the Power On LED (Light) pins.
LED blinks? HarDDrive activity LED (light) pins.
Computer restarts? Reset switch pins.

Look for abbreviations near the pins in the Front panel header.

PWR, Pwr, Pwr On, Sw, and SW; are just some of the abbreviations for the Power On switch.

HDD LED, and HDD are two for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light)
(If it states HDD SW it is the Power On switch. Weird old way of marking)

RST, Reset, and RSW, are for the Reset Switch.
(Reset Button)

If you see 4 pins marked with a bracket ( [ -> Turn so it's horizontal), these are for the internal speaker.

Type MSI front panel connector in your search bar, and look at -> images. See if you can find an image of your MSI Front Panel header pinout.

You can bet MSI carried out that Front Panel header pinout, on other MSI motherboards, besides the MS-5191.

The MSI MS-5191 may have been a motherboard made by MSI, especially for a pre-built computer manufacturer, and not listed on their website as an OEM motherboard.
(Original Equipment Manufacturer)

Won't have the Front Panel header pinout, listed on MSI's support website. (Doesn't)
But you can bet there IS an OEM motherboard made by MSI, that the Front Panel header DOES match.

May be different expansion slots, or motherboard chipset, or whatever; but the same Front Panel header pinout.

9VJL3 front panel


Do not have the Front Panel header pinout.

Do have;

Take an LED (Light), with two wires, and check the pins with it.
There is a Top row of pins, and a Bottom row.

Touch the first two pins in the Top row, left side. Does it light up?
No? Go to the next two pins. No? Go to the next two pins.

Keep going until the Power Supply comes on. (It is a BRIEF touch. The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch )
Now you have the Power On switch pins.

LED light blinks? You have the Harddrive activity LED. (Light)
LED light stays on? You have the Power On LED. (Light)
Computer restarts? The Restart switch pins.

Short something out? NOPE. You can't hurt a thing using this method.

4 of those pins are for an internal speaker. (To hear BIOS Beep Codes with)

That's 12 of those 18 pins. (Probably less. It is two rows of 9 pins, that are stated for the Front Panel header)
4 of those pins probably won't be used.
You won't be using IR. (Infra Remote) (Only uses 2 pins, though)

Most of the time with an 18-pin Front Panel header;

Top Row:
Starting at Left side, going towards Right;
Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, and 18.
May be a pin missing in this row, or two.

Borrom row:
Starting at Left side, going towards Right;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, and 19.
Same thing here. May be 1 or 2 pins missing.

Pins 2 and 4 are usually for the Power On LED. (Light Emitting Diode)
Pins 6 and 8 - Power On switch.
Pins 10, 12, 14, and 16 may be for the Internal speaker.
Pins 18, and 20 are usually not used.

Pin 1 and 3 for the HarDDrive activity LED.
Pins 5 and 7 for the Reset switch.

Pin 9 is usually reserved for the factory, and is a 5 Volt test point.
Pins 11, 13, 15, 17 for speaker; or not used. Same with pin 19.

(So speaker pins may be top row, or bottom row. Dunno )

Another thing. This motherboard is old enough to be using a 3 wire LED, or dual color; for the Power On LED.
LED usually had the colors Green and Yellow.
Yellow for 'Normal' mode, Green for 'Turbo' mode.

(Which is a bunch of cr@p.
Green LED, or Turbo Mode; was actually NORMAL.
Normal mode was the computer operating BELOW the Normal mode)

So pins 2, 4, and 6, may be for a 3 wire Power On LED.

I need a wiring diagram to install my Ultra Durable Motherboard model GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3


This is Gigabyte Support, and the main support page for the Gigabyte GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3 motherboard,

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3854#ov

On this page I invite you to click on the Downloads tab.
(Overview, Specifications, Downloads, News/Awards, etc)

To the right of the Download Type box, click on the blue down arrow.
Click on Manual.

You want the third file down,

English - 1001 - pdf - 28.91MB - 2011/05/02

Under the Download Here heading, click on the name of the country nearest yours.

This is a PDF file. It may take up to 30 seconds before you will see the first page.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.
(The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files)

[ I'm using Adobe Reader X (10), and a medium speed DSL connection. Took over 65 seconds to download, clicked on America. Longest PDF file download I have had in a long time ]

Page 7 shows a layout of the motherboard.
Processor to the Top, Ram Memory to the Right, the Front Panel header is to the bottom right corner.

{The plastic front of your computer 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.
F_PANEL }

Page 23
10) F_PANEL

Page 28 - Front Panel pinout

The Front Panel header is parallel to the bottom edge of the motherboard, and lays out horizontally.
Two rows of 10 pins. Total of 20 pins.

The Top row is numbered Evenly. Pins 2 through 20.

Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, and 20.

The Bottom row is numbered Odd. Pins 1 through 19.

Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, and 19.


A) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.
(If there is a Positive { + } wire it goes to Pin 6)


B) Pins 10 and 12 are not shown. No Pins 10 and 12.

Pins 14, 16, 18, and 20 are for an internal speaker.
This speaker is used for BIOS Beep Codes.


C) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
The red LED that blinks when the harddrive is actively in use.

(Pin 1 is for the Positive wire { + }
If the LED light is dim when operating, switch the wires )


D) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch, IF used.
(You can go through Task Manager, and do the same thing.
OR you can also simultaneously press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys)


E) Pins 9 and 11 are for a Chassis Intrusion switch.

If the computer cover is removed there is no power to the motherboard.
This is IF a chassis intrusion switch is connected to these two pins.

It may have the style that the switch is in the open position, allowing No electricity to pass through to the motherboard, when the computer cover is removed.

Or it may have the style where the switch closes, and connects to Ground, when the computer cover is removed. Again no electricity is allowed to pass through to the motherboard.

Test to see which way works. Jumper wire across these two pins.
Default setting is probably nothing connected to these two pins.



F) No Pin 13

G) Pins 15, 17, and 19 are for the Power On LED light.

There are three pins for using a dual color LED light.

Pins 15 and 17 are for the Positive wires.
One pin goes to one color (Side) of the LED light, the other pin is connected to the other color (Side) of the LED light.

Pin 19 is for the Ground { - } wire.

Dual color LED lights were used if a computer had 'Turbo' mode. The computer was supposed to operate faster in Turbo mode.
In reality the computer operated at normal speed in Turbo mode, and lesser speed in the normal mode.

If your Power On LED light is a single color LED, connect the Positive { + } wire to Pin 15, and the Negative { - } wire to Pin 19.


As for the wires coming from the Front Panel, you'll have to trace them down to see what is what.
Power On switch wires, Power On LED wires, etc.

I have a GA-81865GME-775-RH motherboard, which i put into my box, made all the connections, but have no power once I switch the box on. I suspect it has something to do with the wiring loom running from...


Hello julian_ad681

I will tell you how wire your case front panel, but before that lets test the motherboard to make sure the problem is not the board itself.

Remove all the wire connections to the front panel.

Turn the power on and with a small screw driver or anything that is metal short (touch) the two pins that are the PWR SW. (look at the list of pins I have put at the end)

If the computer turns on then it means the board is ok.

The following information is also availabe in the motherboard manual available from the gogabyte web site download section

On the motherboard next to the battery is the front panel header pins. it looks like

0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 i also write them as numbers as well to make it easy for you)
0 0 0 0 0

1 2 3 4 0 0 0 0
5 6 7 8

1 and 2 are message LED. you don't need any connection to this.
3 and 4 are the power switch connections no polarity, just connect the wires
5 and 6 are the hard disk LED. 5 is the positive side (usually red)
7 and 8 are the reset switch. no polarity, just connect the wires.
Next to the message LED there is a three pin connection. This is for the power LED.


hope this has helped you.
