Question about Intel Motherboard
I wanted to upgrade my Dell Dimension 3100 motherboard. I have all the internal cables connected, but I can't find a way to connect the power on/off (not the power supply), but the button you use to turn computer on and off. The connector for the old motherboard uses an IDE cable, but the new motherboard which is compatible for the Dual Core 2 Processors, has a 9-Pin front panel connector. Thanks for any suggestions...??
Hi, I think you are looking at the front USB pin aray connector. The on/off switch and LED light pins are usualy along the edge of the board nearest the front of the case. They will be marked with ID: lettering:- pwrs, hdd led, rs-sw, pwr led. If your case has one block plug you will haave to gently seperate the segments and plug them on one at a time. The power and reset switch will work either way but the LED will only work when plugged the right way around, it wont do any harm if they are plugged backwards they just wont work, so experiment. regards mistyman
