Question about Gigabyte 8VM533M-RZ (GA-8VM533M-RZ) Motherboard

1 Answer

CAD station down

One of my colleagues plugged a USB cable in to the front USB port and the whole systen went down. Upon close inspection, found that the little plastic "thingy" that seperates the contact pins was missing, so when the USB cable was inserted everything got shorted. Now when the system is started the monitor says "no signal" and there is no "beep". Tried removing the video card to use the onboard video and that failed. Removed the HDD and hooked it up to an identical ayatem and after a few minutes I get "BOOT DISK SECTOR NOT FOUND", so I hooked it up as the SLAVE and when Windows was near the end of booting up Iget the "BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH". With the "shorting" of the USB port have fried the BIOS Chip and CPU as well as the HDD? Should we just scrap the MB? Any help would help

Colored ribbons on motherboard and correct ports

Helps if you post the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number.


Post the computer manufacturer name, and model number.

This is found on the back of a Desktop PC, next to the Windows product key; or up on the side of the computer tower.

Color of the cables ('ribbons') doesn't matter.

WHAT they are does.

NOW.........I can guide you with plugging in power cables FROM the Power Supply, TO motherboard. Also the different peripherals the power cables plug into. (Harddrive, optical drive, fans, etc)

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires from the Front panel go to; is the Front Panel header.
(Power On switch, Power On LED light, Harddrive LED light, Reset switch, etc)

I MAY be able to give you a Front panel header pinout.

We will see about Front USB ports, Front Audio ports, Card Reader, etc.

I CANNOT give you the color code of the wires, coming FROM the Front Panel, TO the Front Panel header.
I CAN give you info on how to find out what each one is, though.

Hi, i have a problem with the USB ports in my Intel D945GCNL M.B, sometimes all USB ports not working, when i unplug the front USB ports the rear USB ports works good, and even when its work when i plug...

I had a similar problem with a laptop.

First I'd go to the Intel website, download and install the latest USB related drivers, see if that works. If not, and this is where I come to my similar problem, It was the USB2 port or driver that was the fault. I diabled them in the management part of the windows software and carried on with USB 1.1 operations.

The second option used because it would have meant a new mother board.

Is there a way to attach mutimedia card reader to gateway micro atx motherboard

I'm not sure which model number you have, but you are able and have USB ports on your computer, then the answer is yes. You can do it two ways: One way (simplest way) is to buy an external multi-reader that plugs into a USB port. The second (More permanent), is when you open up your case and look at your motherboard, you should see a white cable that is connecting to your front-mounted USB ports. Follow it back to the motherboard and see if you have another slot to put another cable in for you multi-reader (and make sure you have a spot available in the front of your case to put the multi-reader). If you don't have a spot, or another plug, then go to and buy an internal reader with at least one or two USB ports, and replace your existing front USB port.

My usb ports stopped working. i unistalled them and restarted my computer. computer saw the usb ports on start up but still doesn't see any devices I plug into it. Is it a bad motherboard or a driver...

Some computers have both USB ports on the front and back of the case. The ones on the bark are directly off the motherboard while the ones on the front are usually connected by a separate cable. If you are trying the front ports, try one of the rear ones instead. if it works in the back, that cable may need to be reconnected inside the case.

USB port problems

You need the motherboard specs, which you can look up on the internet, based on the maker.
With the USB ports, the front ones often don't include power.
So plug a powered 4 port hub into the front port, and then the hub will supply the power after that.

Front usb ports

Follow the interior cabling of the front usb port to the Mb where its pluged in. Checking the cable as you go.
You'll need your manual for this. The pins are not in the correct order for "your" board.

Havimg prob with the 2 usb ports located in front

Hi manky, Normally front USB ports have a pair of 4 wire cable with connectors marked red wire is vcc; white wire is -D; green wire is +D; and black wire is gnd. The motherboard would normally have two pairs of dual pin connectors that would be sitting side by side or in-line with uneven pins - 4 and 5 pins; then another 4 and 5 pins. Please refer to the attached simple diagram for your connection. For some reason I couldn't get hold of a manual from the Gigabyte site of your particular model GA-81KHXT. Nonetheless hopes this works for you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.
