Motherboard connectors Recently purchased the motherboard from an E380 and am trying to install it in my case. The connectors for the power switch, reset switch HD LED and power LED are not labeled on the board. All I see is a section labeled front panel. Does anyone know which pins are which? Thanks

SOURCE: mismatch connection,plug vs pin after swithing motherboard

Hi there.
On the motherboard look for the front panel, it should be marked PWR and coloured green, also the plug that connects to it should be marked PWR_SW.
Have a look at these pictures for an idea >>>>>>

SOURCE: I am about to switch out the motherboard for m5640 aspire 1

New motherboard will have a picture of the pin connections and where they connect on the motherboard. Just follow these connections, also the wires leading from the from the front of the case to the motherboard are labelled as to what they connect to. As a final note, the white wire on the connectors is usually always the ground wire, so look at the drawing carefully to see which side is the positive and make sure that the coloured wire goes to the positive side not the white.

Trying to install an ASUS H81M-C Mainboard with Intel core i5-4460. No way to turn on. Mainboard's Power led is on. Nothing happens at all. All connections are OK. Anyone has an idea? Thanks.


When you say that all connections are ok, you understand that we have to verify as this is the most common problem that occurs when installing motherboards. Obviously you have the large connector from the power supply plugged in since you have the power led on the motherboard. This is good. There is also the ATX 12V CPU 4-pin power connector that must be connected just above and to the left of the CPU. But the most often messed up arrangement are the front panel connections to the motherboard at the lower right corner. This is a 9-pin connector block (actually 10, but top right corner pin not there and bottom right not used).

In the link attached, go to page 26 of the pdf, which is page 1-18 of the manual. At the top of the page is a drawing of the connector block. The green power led takes the first two pins in the top row from the left. The connector plug should have a green and a white wire. The green is the positive and goes on the left pin of the pair.
Right below that is the two pins for the HDD light. This plug should have red and white wires. The red wire is positive and goes to the left pin of the pair. Going back to the top, the power button is the remaining two pins. These wires can vary in color from case to case, but if you don't see a label, just follow them back to the power switch to figure out which pair they are. This connector can be installed either way, there is no fixed polarity. The remaining two pins are for the reset switch, which some cases have and some don't. This connection does not to be used.

If you have everything correct and the unit still won't power up, then you need to verify that the power switch is working. If you have a reset switch, it is easy to test, just switch the reset and power button connectors and press and release the reset button and see if the board powers up. If you don't have a reset switch, remove the connector from the power button pins and carefully short them together for a brief second, which simulates pressing the power button. If it still doesn't power up, then there is something wrong with the motherboard.

One last thing, if the front panel connectors are all installed into one plug (which some manufacturers like DELL does, and you are installing this motherboard into their case, be sure to verify that the wires on the connector goes to the appropriate front panel switches/indicators, as these connector blocks are not fully standardized.

Power supply diagram for ht 2000 motherboard


http://www.ebay.com/itm/ECS-HT2000-AMD-AM2-Socket-mATX-DDR2-800-Motherboad-w-NVidia-Graphics-/251260314586?pt=Motherboards&hash=item3a804823da


1) Uses one 24-pin ATX main power cable.

Motherboard installed in computer case, the motherboard connector for the 24-pin ATX main power cable; is to the Right of the Blue IDE (PATA) connector.
(Right side of motherboard)

General example. Note that color does NOT matter of connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24


2) Uses one 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

Motherboard installed in computer case, the whitish square 4-socket hole connector, to the Bottom/Left corner of the Processor socket; is the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable's motherboard connector.

General example. Note color does NOT matter of connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

THAT, would be considered a Power Supply diagram of the motherboard.

They are the only two power cables that plug into the motherboard.

The front of your desktop 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.

Power On switch, Power On LED, (Light Emitting Diode), Harddrive activity LED, and a Reset switch IF used.

Here are some ideas for you to try.

1. Make sure your motherboard is up on motherboard standoff screws so that it isn't directly touching the case. Follow this link if you don't know what a motherboard standoff looks like: http://www.mountainmods.com/brass-motherboard-standoff-10-pack-p-203.html

2. Unplug all peripherals including RAM, video card, hard drives etc.

3. Make sure both the power supply's ATX 20/24 pin connector is plugged in to the motherboard along with the ATX 12V connector.

4. Make sure the power connector, reset switch, and pc speakers are installed into the motherboard correctly. If the power connector is installed incorrectly the PC will not boot up. Look at p.103 of the motherboard manual. The power connector is located at label 5.

5. If you are hearing any beeps after you press the power button post that information and if you're seeing any lights on the top bezel please post that information as well.

6. Either switch out the power supply or buy a power supply tester to make sure the power supply is good. They only cost $20 or so if you buy one from Newegg or Tiger Direct.

7. Make sure the processor fan is plugged into the motherboard.

Hope these ideas can provide a breakthrough for you.
Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

There is no power switch on the enhance atx 1123b that I have . What actually powers it up?


Just about every power supply I've owned doesn't have a power switch. The power supply is turned on by one of the wires in the 24 pin connector. According to this it looks to be pin 16 and how to turn it on:

"Short this pin to GND to switch power supply ON, disconnect from GND to switch OFF."

Hope this helps

Get no power with intel d875pbz in rosewill tu155 case


You don't have the power switch connected where it belongs. There's one set of pins where all the front panel connections go. This information is from the manual for this board, available from Intel here.

Hope it helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

Comp. does'nt turn on. power is good


Your question fails to provide sufficient information.

.."doesn;t turn on power good...."
do any lights on the pc illuminate
was it working before, and did it close down correctly
has it possibly been hit by lightning
have you recently opened the case to install new hardware?

Possible causes of a failed power up.
dead power supply
a video card not seated in its slot correctly
dud motherboard
motherboard installed incorrectly
no Bios battery on motherboard
faulty wall switch
faulty power pack switch
no ram installed

and on and on

Read the labels for the connectors on the motherboard.

Polarity does not matter for the POWER and RESET buttons.

If the lamps for AC-POWER or HARD-DRIVE-ACTIVITY do not light-up when you expect them, then reverse the connector.

Try the PC SPEAKER connection one way, and then shutdown
the computer, reserve the connection, and start the computer.
If the "beep" at start-up is better, leave it as-is.
If the "beep" does not happen, or is quieter/distorted, reverse the connector.

This is a typically problem when you don't have the motherboard proerly seated. Some part of the board must be touching the metal contacts when you screw down the board to the case which causes a short. Try to reseat the motherboard and also make sure you're using washers in between where you screw down the motherboard to the case. That should fix your issue (Unless there's something wrong with the motherboard all-together).
