Yes.
First, let's orient the view of the motherboard, so we are both looking at it the same way.
The processor is at the top middle, and the Front panel header, is to the very bottom right hand corner.
Right next to the motherboard mounting hole.
The Front Panel header goes across the bottom edge of the motherboard, lengthwise.

Looking at the top row of pins on the Front Panel header, No.2 Pin is at the far left. Pins 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10, go across the top.

Looking at the bottom row, No. 1 Pin is at the far left. Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9, go across the bottom.

The power switch wires go to Pins 6 and 8.
The HDD LED wires go to Pins 1 and 3.
The power LED wires go to Pins 2 and 4.

On the power switch wires, the Positive (+) wire goes to Pin 6. Just in case this wire is marked.
(Doesn't really matter which way it goes, because it's a switch!)

On the HDD LED wires, the Positive (+) wires goes to Pin 1.

On the power LED wires, the Positive (+) wire goes to Pin 6.

I want to be sure if the solution above is true, because i can't see 5 pins on the top row (that is there is no pin at number 10), where else there is 5 pins on the bottom row. is it the same board that the solution talks about ?????????????

There is usually a set of pins on the corner that are labeled get a magnify glass and light up the board take the glass and look down on one of the corners it is usually on the right corner of the bottom of the board at the bottom of the desktop case. You will usually see a series of abbreviations. LED, HDD, PWR, RES or RE the pins are marked. Now on the wires to the power button you will see the same wire abbreviations. Just hook up the HDD wire to the HDD pin the PWR to the PWR button wire and so on. RESET wire is RE or RES etc. Those really are the only three you will need. Not sure of the exact abbreviations. But they are lettered enough for you to match them. The best thing to do is try to download the board specs and get a look at the pins one side is neg and the other is positive it would be to your best interest to find the mother board specs for you mother board since you went all over the internet and could not find the board specs. just match the LED and the others they are marked PWR is the main and HDD is just showing when the HDD is working. The reset is for the button to reset the computer. It is basic and not that complicated really. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Hello julian_ad681

I will tell you how wire your case front panel, but before that lets test the motherboard to make sure the problem is not the board itself.

Remove all the wire connections to the front panel.

Turn the power on and with a small screw driver or anything that is metal short (touch) the two pins that are the PWR SW. (look at the list of pins I have put at the end)

If the computer turns on then it means the board is ok.

The following information is also availabe in the motherboard manual available from the gogabyte web site download section

On the motherboard next to the battery is the front panel header pins. it looks like

0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 i also write them as numbers as well to make it easy for you)
0 0 0 0 0

1 2 3 4 0 0 0 0
5 6 7 8

1 and 2 are message LED. you don't need any connection to this.
3 and 4 are the power switch connections no polarity, just connect the wires
5 and 6 are the hard disk LED. 5 is the positive side (usually red)
7 and 8 are the reset switch. no polarity, just connect the wires.
Next to the message LED there is a three pin connection. This is for the power LED.


hope this has helped you.

please leave comment, vote if the helped

Pulled off front cover. three sets of wires came off. need to know where to reconnect. white/red wire HDD LED, white/green wire POWER LED, white/black wire POWER SW


Hi. You may want to check your motherboard for this wires to connect to, First, check your motherboards manual and look where the FRONT PANEL is located, then on the front panel or in the manual itself it will tell you where are those wires should be connected to. If you dont have the manual for your motherboard search it on google and do the same, and if still you coudnt find it over the internet then just look closely on your motherboard and look for the words HDD LED, POWER LED and POWER SW, usually those words or the FRONT PANEL is located on the left side bottom part of your motherboard. Hope This Helps

There are may motherboards, but most have writing on them as to what is suppose to plug where. For example, for the power switch, the lettering might be "Pwr" or "Power" or "Pwr sw". The pins are usually together and should fit the plug on the end of the wire.

TRYING TO HOOK UP MU POWER BUTTON NEED TO KNOW


Hi there
The front panel connectors are mainly,
  • harddisk activity connector
  • power switch connector
  • reset switch connector
  • power LED connector
  • speakers connector
  • USB connector
Harddisk activity connector
This normally comes red in colour and is labeled as HDD-LED
Power switch connector
This comes green in colour and is labeled as POWER-SW
Reset switch connector
This usually comes grey in colour and is labeled as RST-SW
Power LED connector
This is usually green in colour and is labled as PWR-LED
Speakers connector
This speaker will give different beep sounds during boot to tell the user if there is any errors. It occupies 4 pins, however only 2 is important for the function. Be sure to connect the red coloured cable to the positive polarity and the black to the negative.
