Re: Motherboard Jumper spots

I realise this thread is very old, but I had the same problem, Pin 1 is correctly identified on my S1689 MB by a thick white line around that corner of the connector. Trouble is, the manual diagram is misleading -you would expect Pin 1 to be top left of the page, but no, it turns out its BOTTOM LEFT of the diagram Power Switch goes on Pin1 and Pin2, you can figure out the others from there.
Symptoms of wrong connection were: Won't boot no beeps, fans whirr for a second or so then PSU trips out. (Manual actually does have a tiny number '1' printed in the pin 1 box, but you need a microscope to see it, PDF version on website has red mark to indicate Pin 1)

Hope this helps someone sometime in the future.

Re: Motherboard Jumper spots

On both cases study the motherboard carefully, check the writeup at the pins and surely you will find the jumper pins you are looking for.

My motherboard (intel DG41WV) is starting but not giving output to screen. I have cheked cables sokets. Even i have cheked to other screen. but problem is still. all peripherals (fan, cd-rom...etc) are...

Motherboard installed in computer case;

A) Keyboard Jumper Block

3-pin jumper block, Top of motherboard/ left side. Near the mounting hole, and 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable connector,

GENERAL example of a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

[ This power cable MUST be plugged into the motherboard.
It is power for the Intel processor ]

3-pin jumper block.
Starting at the TOP coming down;
Pins 3, 2 and 1.

Jumper cap should be on Pins 2 and 3.
(Enables the Keyboard wake-up feature. Factory default setting is Enabled. Pins 2 and 3)

B) Clear CMOS Jumper Block.

BOTTOM right corner of motherboard. 3-pin jumper block.
It is to the Left of the bottom/left SATA connector.
It is immediately to the Right of the motherboard mounting hole.

Starting at the Top, and going down towards the bottom edge of the motherboard;
Pins 3, 2, and 1.

Jumper cap should be on Pins 1 and 2.

When you changed the SMPS, do you KNOW for a fact it is a good one?
Did you plug the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, into the motherboard?

What COMS setting/s did you change?
I would go back into BIOS Setup, and set that menu screen back to the factory default settings.

Hi ,, i have just fitted a intel d845gvsrb in my pc but i am not sure where the tower speaker wire , reset sw , power sw , power led , h h d led and the black single one go`s can you please help me ..

The Picture below shows you the locations of the places to put those wires are in relation to your motherboard. In yellow is the power switch and such. and the audio connection is in red.

The Pin layout for the power and other connector are as follows:

the layout for the audio header is as follows: avatar23454_8.jpg

To install the cable that connects a front panel audio solution to the front panel audio header, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off all peripheral devices connected to the computer. Turn off the computer and disconnect the AC power cord.
  2. Locate the front panel audio header (J8A1).
  3. Remove the three jumpers from the header (this disables the back panel audio connectors).
  4. Install a correctly keyed and shielded front panel audio cable.
  5. Connect the audio cable to the front panel audio solution.

To restore back panel operations follow these steps:
1. Remove the front panel audio cable. 2. Install a jumper on pins 5-6 (rear R channel). 3. Install a jumper on pins 9-10 (rear L channel). 4. Install a jumper on pins 1-2 (mic). 5. Replace the cover.

Not deteck hdd & cdrom

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;
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;
To view the manual you will need to download and install Adobe 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.

I just asked about removein the startup password wat do mean with the jumper i am new with computers so could u explain a lil more

3ac542afbc4ff40fe47b72448dec8cca.png they look like this and can be any color... Most motherboards can have the BIOS password reset by moving the jumper to the correct pin position. Many motherboards have small print by the jumper to indicate the correct positions. For example you might see some pins on the mother board, with a jumper like the one above, with the words PSWD RST or something similar wrote on the mother board. If the jumper is on pins 1 and 2 move it over to pins 2 and 3, then reboot your computer. Then shut down the computer down and put the jumper back where it was and it should have reset the pass word.

I would advise you to compare my instructions to that of *********** boards manual which you can download form the mother boards manufacturers website.

I'm looking for manual i need JPN1 setting pin outs for power switch, speaker, etc

hello, look at the motherboard clearly or you put it under light, you will see all the jumper pins labeled with or printed with white paint, the name of each connection pins is written on the board. the speaker is far from the power switch,the reset pin is by the side of the power pin, the HDD light and the power light are opposite each make things simpler, i suggest you forget about the reset and other ones and concentrate on the power pin. bridge all the pin with a screw driver to locate for the power pin i.e two pin at a time.

How to install the jumper in normal mode?

If i am correct, the computer starts up and you see the setup page. It then says that you are supposed to place the jumper in the normal position and It happens every time.

If this is correct, it is telling you that there is a jumper on the motherboard (probably labeled "clear CMOS) and it's set in the incorrect position. There will be three pins. The jumper is installed across two of them. Move the jumper (the little plastic thing) to the other setting: for example, if it's installed on pins 1 and 2, move it to 2 and 3. Give that a try.

The jumper should look something like this:

P4VM800 SATA HDD Problem Plz Help me!!!

Check your user documentation for the hard drive to see if it has a user-accessible jumper that will switch it to 1.5Gb mode. I know that Seagate/Maxtor drives have a jumper they refer to as Force 150 and Western Digital calls their jumper OPT1 Enabled. If this option exists with this hard disk, it should solve your problem.

Will probably work for you.
