Go to Mercury's website, and under 'download drivers' is all the information you need. The drivers for the various devices are there, and a downloadable copy of the manual.
The USB cable to the fron panel and the mother board look similar. The cable and board will have 1 pin missing at the end of the connector, and that is the orientation to connect it.
You need the network drivers to activate the network connection (also at mercury's website)

I need the front panel connections location, which ones go where for the ga-73pvm-s2h motherboard

Gigabyte has the manual for the GA-73PVM-S2H on the product support site: . The full manual is near the bottom of the list. The direct link to the English version of the manual is . The Motherboard Installation Guide at the top of the list is a generic manual for all motherboards.

The front panel connections are shown on page 28 of the manual. There are two lines of pins. From left to right, the inside line of pins are the Power LED +, Power LED -, Power Switch +, Power Switch -, then the Case Speaker +, Case Speaker -. (The speaker - is next to a Case Fan connector; so there are a couple of blank spots between the speaker + and - pins.) On the line of pins at the edge of the board, again from left to right: HD LED +, HD LED -, Reset Switch -, Reset Switch + . There is no contact on the last pin in this group.

I hope this helps.

Installing back my power switch and reset switch together with speaker, hdd led, and power led.

On the motherboard the pinouts on the front panel should be colour coded, and marked with letters like in this picture >>>>>

The connectors are also marked corresponding to where the connect on the motherboard, like in this picture >>>>>>

If the board is not colour coded then the motherboard will marked with the same letters, you may need a strong light and a magnifying glass to see the marks and they are usually at the bottom right of the motherboard.

If you have the manual for the motherboard you'll find how to connect the front panel jumpers from you're case. Provide the model number of the MB and I'll be able to help you further. The model number should be marked on the MB.

Looking to plug in my main switch and need help with finding the right port(s)...only see one color coded set of pins available....

Open the link provided below by MSI;
Download and install Adobe reader to view manual.
Adobe Free;
Manual for K8T Neo-FSR;
Download the maual if needed. Open to page 2-20.
Use the manual to connect you're case wires to the motherboard. JFP1 provides power to Reset Switch, HDD, Power on switch and Power LED. Use JFP2 - connect internal speaker. (Bios uses this for POST).
Power On Self Test. If you use Adobe you can zoom in on pg. 2-20 which will help you connect each set of wires to their matching MB pins.

I need the front panel pin layout for a Gigabyte 8S648FX-RZ motherboard. (that is the power switch, reset switch, LED etc.)

Open the link for your Gigabyte MB 8S648FX-l;
This is your manual. Go to page 15. You can enlarge the image if needed.
You will need Adobe Reader to view the manual. If you need Adobe it is a free download;
To view the main link for the Gigabyte 8S648FX-RZ click below;
Case front panel wire colors can be confusing. Most cases use colored wires as their +positive. White is commonly used as the -ground wire. Except when connecting an internal speaker. Black colored wire is ground.

Motherboard Pin Plugin

they are not marked with small White letters and lines that visually isolate what ones are what? most boards are marked in this way, you may need a magnifier to see them. i looked over the manual, it is not showing a good picture of it, but i would look on the left side manual view,or the bottom left area, see if you can make it out. the lettering i spoke of. i have had alot of p3 boards in the past, never saw one unmarked. hope this is helpful, if you need further assistance reply. good luck- ok i did some looking do you do you see j10b1? are they marked, other than 1 or 2? this is the one i am looking at now.

HDD,Power switch,Reset pin configuration

Google your motherboard and download the manual for it, or post the model # for it here. The manual will show the pin out. In general, the pins are usually abbreviated on the motherboard, albeit, very small. The wires will usually be marked HDD, RST, speakers,etc. Sometimes the pin outs are color coded on the mobo, just connect the wires to them color to color.

Gigabyte GA-8INXP Motherboard Problem- front connector pins

If the wires from the reset switch is white/blue the blue wire is positive, Hdd red/white red is positive power Green/white Green is positive etc. The wires on the speaker connector will be red/black/black/white - red is positive. The colored wire is always positive. On all GA mb's the positive connection is always towards the back of the MB and are marked with a + on the base of the pin as you can see on the photo. Hope this help.

Dead new motherboard

Are you using a 24 pin or 20 pin power supply? Can you confirm the power supply you are using does indeed work?
