Your best bet would be to try to trace the pinout using the faulty Dell case. It's extremely unlikely that anyone has done a wiremap for this. Sorry, realize this isn't the answer you're looking for, but is a suggestion.

I inherited a Dell dimension 9100 that had a buggy motherboard. Since this seems a common problem for this model I'm replacing it with an Intel DG965MS. I altered the case for the back panel and everything...

Well the only thing I can think of is to use a multimeter to trace the connections on where they go, and a little trial and error should do it after that. Had to do something similar on a 8200.

Front panel connection to mother board Power switch pin

Hi careyfraser,


1. There are 8 wires from the front panel's casing, excluding USB connectors and front audio cable.

2. Just plug the front panel switch headers to the F_Panel main board connectors. 1 & 2 are positive, if the led do not light change polarity but Im sure it will.

Note:The mainboard provides a front panel connector for electrical connection to the front panel switches and LEDs. JFP1 is compliant with Intel® Front Panel I/O Connectivity Design Guide.

Hopefully this information helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

You have 500mA on usb port. If you cause a short on usb connectors, this can damage the motherboard.
Disconnect usb port on motherboard (work with power unplugged ), remove all ide and floppy cable,eventually remove and put back in place bios battery and Ram.
Restart Motherboard only with 1 module Ram (bios battery back in place), CPU and Fan (ensure cpu and fan are well in place), do not plug anything else than switch on button.
If it still does not work there is a good chance you blew the Motherboard.

It would be easier to order the cable and front panel board assy as one. easy on ebay.
I have worked on them for years and never bothered to trace them out. and dell doesn't post the pinout anywhere.
If you can't find one I can get it for you cheap.
