Front panel wiring

I removed the front panel wires from the F_PANEL connections on the Gigabyte mother board on my PS 8250. Is there a wiring diagram or something available to use so I can get the wires connected back to where they were?

    The BIOS will need to be pulled and replaced with a reprogrammed one. So a POST isn't possible at this time. I have the manual for the Gigabyte mb so I can give you a picture of the F_PANEL layout on the board. I'll try reconnecting the wires as you suggest. If that fails then I'll try to get a closeup picture of the actual wires and what they have written on them.

Hi, Maybe we can wing it if you can send an image of the motherboard closeup on the F_PANEL connections and the wires from the front panel itself, or get the specific motherboard model during POST so we can try getting URL of manual. In some instances, the front panel wires are: Green wire, power on green light +, white wire is power on green light -; Red & Black, speaker; Red & white - HDD red activity light indicator where red is HDD + & white is HDD -; Orange & white - Reset Black & White - power on Post back so we can figure things out. Good luck and kind regards.

I need a wire diagram for a Gateway Mother board MCP61PM-GM


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

Would this be what you require, or more extensive?

From a fellow FixYa expert,

I know it states MCP61PM-HM
The 10-pin ( actually) Front Panel header, is the same across the board, for ECS motherboards.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I have a gigabyte ga 81865gme775 mother board, can you give me the front pannel connection details

hello jknr09

my name is ausi

i can not find your motherboard on gigabyte web site. however the boards nowadays are standard as far as front panel header goes.

on gigabyte mother board you will see the hedae as two rows of pins like this.

..... ....

the bottom row first 4 pins are the speaker pins. the next single pin is void the next two are reset switch. the last two are hard disk lead.
the top row first two pins are message lead (usually not used). the next two pins are power switch exactly opposite the reset switch.

the power lead connection on gigabyte boards are a three pin header next to the front panel header.

hopefully this is helpful.

Installed new motherboard (Gigabyte GA-G41M-ES2L), I cannot figure out where to plug the blue & white wire coming from the main power button on the front of the computer on the motherboard. Please...

hello tami_hennacy

unfortunately the wiring color for computer cases are not standard. so blue and white does not mean much. you need to look at the connection on the tip of the wire to see if it is labeled so you can locate the corresponding connection point on the mother board. Gigabyte motherboards have a very good step by step discretion of all connections.

if it is not labeled then you need to oped the case front panel and see what the other end of this pair of wires is connected to.

hopefully this has helped
good luck

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.
