I installed a working motherboard. Now I can not find the correct jumpers to put these pins on it like Power Switch, HDD Light, etc..... this board has a AliMagik I Chipset on it. can you help me with this problem
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)
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

in some motherboard when you change the c mos jumper the motherboard doesn't switch on change the pin to 1 and 2 normally which is c mos normal and 2 and 3 is to clear c mos you will see marking of all the jumpers in the motherboard set the pin correct to normal and also remove the power connector from the motherboard and short the green and the black wire and see whether the smps works if not working change them
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:
To install the cable that connects a front panel audio solution to the front panel audio header,
follow these steps:
Turn off all peripheral devices connected to the computer. Turn off the computer and disconnect the AC power cord.
Locate the front panel audio header (J8A1).
Remove the three jumpers from the header (this disables the back panel audio connectors).
Install a correctly keyed and shielded front panel audio cable.
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.
Remove all power sources, ac adapter and main battery if you have one. Then disconnect RTC battery for 30 seconds. It is located under the tear shaped cover on bottom of computer. Reconnect RTC battery and ac adapter but DO NOT PUT BACK THE MAIN BATTERY until you have reset the date and time.
dude make sure if the jumper pin is set properly as i think your MObo is sata 1 support and all new generation Hdd are sata2 support so u have to set the jumper pin. the setting are different fro different Hdd so check the producers website.
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.
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.
what u may have done is wwhen u were installing the new board, gave a static shock to the system...that will cause only the fans to come on and nothing more...this is a bad problem bc u cannot fix it...if u figure out something else is wrong, and it gets fixed, let me know
Hi, 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: http://tinyurl.com/l8hvqr
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.
If I understand what you are asking: 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. It happens every time.

Will probably work for you.
