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?

Re: front panel wiring

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.

Need wiring diagram for client pro 365

What was your original MOBO? It should help you identify the connections to your chassis/front panel.

Typically you will have USB, audio, ground, power supply and switching/reset lines.

Often the connectors are not compatible and you need to improvise.

A manual appears to be here for Intel 915GRV uATX Motherboard (ClientPro 365) (MBD001246-00):

Use at your own risk. MPC died some years back and this is the official MPC/Gateway support site per Wikipedia

I replace the mother board and now the pc will not power on. I replaced on the power supply wires back to the original place where they were before on the old motherboard. What do you think?

Did you get all the wires coming from the front panel in the right spots. Most motherboards manufacturers have a diagram on where these wires need to go on the motherboard connector. They also need to be in the right polarity.

Installed an Upgrated Mother Brd,in my Hp Desktop Tower,but the power Switch receptacle in the New Mother Brd has 16 pns

You need to track the wires from the case front panel to thier locations: one will be your power switch, one your reset, one hard drive activity light, and one your power light. You want to note and label which light or switch they go to then go to the new motherboards manual and plan which wires need to go where.
the front panel switches : reset and power switch- these are momentary switches so it doesnt matter which way they go.
hard drive activity and power light- these should have a colored wire and a black or white. the colored wire will be your + side.
