I am trying to find a manual to download for the above motherboard. All I really need is the pin-out data to enable connecting the CASE connectors to the motherboard. Such as the power-on and reset switches, speaker, power on and hard drive indicator lamps.
Would appreciate any assistance on this matter.

Hi there, first check the image below. You've got USB 3 and 4, and AUDIO section. For the USB, pins 1 and 2 represent front panel USB power on both 3 and 4. As for AUDIO connection, pin 1 is Front Panel Microphone input signal, pin 3 is Microphone Power, pins 5 and 6 are for Right Channel audio signal to Front Panel and pins 9 and 10 are for Left Channel audio signal to Front Panel.
You can download the manual for you're AOpen MX4GE motherboard from the link provided below; ftp://ftp.aopen.com/pub/manual/mb/mx4ge/mx4ge-ol-e.pdf
You'll need Adobe reader installed to view the *.pdf file above.

Open manual to page 33. Here you'll see the layout for the front panel motherboard pins. The view towards the left shows where to connect the jumpers coming from the case to the motherboard. The view on the right shows where each positive wire and negative wire connects. The common colored wire for each jumper will be used as negative. Except for the internal speaker 4-pin jumper. Normally positive wire is red in color and ground is black in color and connects to pins 16 and 19 only. Pin 1 is shown. Pin 2 is to the right of pin 1. Pin three is below pin 1 ECT.
Power down you're system and remove the power cable from the PS. Open you're case. First clear the cmos jumper. See bottom of page 14 in manual. The GA-8VM533M-RZ motherboard was made Jan-1-2004. It is very likely that the cmos battery needs to be replaced. Average life span is 5 years or less. Pull the cmos battery and check its voltage with a voltmeter, it should read no less than 2.7volts DC. I'm guessing it’s the bios that’s not seeing the CD-ROM drive and the hdd? Suggest you check both the data cables and their power cables. Since the GA-8VM533M-RZ motherboard only supports ATA IDE hdd's, check the drives jumper. (It should be jumpered as a Master) and so should the jumper on the back of the cd-rom drive. See the link provided; http://www.easeus.com/resource/install-ide-hard-drive.htm The link above helps but you're hdd may be different. See the sticker on you're hdd for the correct jumper setting. If you are using a single data cable to connect both cd-rom and hdd to the motherboard don't. Use an 80-pin data cable for the hard disk drive. You can use a 40-pin data cable for the cd-rom but if you have a spare 80-pin data cable connect the cd-rom drive to it. Connect the hdd to IDE1 and connect the cd-rom to IDE2. See motherboard layout in the manual page 5. Need the manual? Download it from Gigabyte; http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=1766 To view the manual you will need to download and install Adobe reader; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/ Re-connect the power cable to the PS. You can leave the case opened for now. Power on the system and press the Delete key every 2 seconds until the bios menu opens. (Make sure the time and date are set current). See page 19. Than turn to page 23. Make the settings as follows; First Boot Device [Floppy] - (if one is connected) Second Boot Device [CD-ROM Third Boot device [HHD-0] Password Check [Not needed] CPU Hyper-Threading [Enabled] Check all settings while in the bios, save and exit. The system will auto re-boot. If after replacing the bios battery (If needed), and the bios still does not see either drive than the problem is either the bios or the motherboard's controller. The bios can be flashed but the MB controller can not be repaired.
Power off the system & unplug the power cord. Open your PC case. To remove any static build up from your body, touch the metal bottom of the case before touching any internal parts. It sound like the primary IDE data cable is loose or the power cable to the drive is loose. Try disconnecting both & than re-connect them. If that does not stop the issue, replace the data cable for the primary IDE drive. Click on the link provided. The site will explain IDE connections & the differences between a 40-pin IDE data cable & an 80-pin data cable.

Try the above first. If the problem continues the issue could be the hard disk drive. Mike
Hi Paul, see page 8 number 15 for location. Than see page 19, System Panel Header in your manual. The basic wire color's for positive are red, blue, green & can also be light blue, light green, light red. Negative wires are usually white or black. Case wire colors do vary from case to case. To see pin one shown on page 19, (positive + for hard drive led = HDLED+). Bottom row farthest pin to the left of set. Pin two is above pin one. Pin two is, PLED+ (known as power led). Pin 3 is to the right of pin one & is HDLED- (Hard drive led, negative). Pin 4 is above pin 3 & is also PLED-, (Negative for power led). ECT!
If your new case has an internal speaker (Used for P.O.S.T, power on self test). This would connect to, Chassis Speaker Header located on page 8, number 16. Again, normally only two wires are used across the 4-pin connector. (One at each end of the connector).
