I would like you to go here to,
Where it states -> File: 5185v10.zipVersion:--Release Date:-- Download
I would like you to click on Download.

You will see a small window come up. Click on the empty circle to the left of -> Save

Unless, you have your downloads going to your My Documents folder (Start>My Documents) this will wind up on your desktop screen. It will be a yellow folder icon with probably -> <- under it.

Double-click on the yellow folder icon. You will see 6 PDF files.
5185-1.pdf, 5185-2.pdf, and so on.
To open them and look at them, you double-click on each one, one at a time.
Then in the File Download window, you click on Open.

In 5185-2.pdf, it shows you the Front Panel header, and where the Front Panel wires go.
(Not trying to insult your intelligence. The Front Panel is where your Power On button is. The Front Panel header is on the motherboard. A connector on a motherboard, is referred to as a Header)

Should somehow you can't download this PDF Motherboard Manual, I will try to explain the connections on the Front Panel header. Bear with me.

Viewing the motherboard with the processor up at the top, ram memory to the right, the Front Panel header is on the bottom right. It is the JFP2 header.
(The motherboard manual, clearly shows this header as being the JFP2 header. Then it states it's the JFP1 header. Believe there was a misprint. You'll know)

It is situated lengthwise up and down, parallel to the right side of the motherboard, with two rows of pins.

The pins are numbered 1 through 20. There are spots where there are No pins. Where there is no pin, I will state -> No connect

Starting at the top on the left side, and coming down.
Pin 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, No connect, and 10.

Starting on the top right side, and coming down.
No connect, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, No connect, 2, and 1.

1.Pins 18 and 17 are for the Reset Switch
2.Pins 16 through 13 are for the internal speaker
3.Pins 12 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED.
4.Pins 10 and 1 are for the Keylock Switch
5.Pins 8 and 7 are for the Power On switch
6.Pins 6, 5, and 4, are for the Power LED
Pin 6 is the Positive connection, (+)

This motherboard uses an ATX 20-pin motherboard power connector.
It is at the top of the motherboard, and goes across lengthwise.
There are 20 socket holes.
Pin 1 is on the top left. It uses an Orange wire. (3.3 volts)
Pin 10 is all the way to the right. It uses a Yellow wire, (12 volts)

MSI 845GVM-V (MS-7057-010) Motherboard cpu fan not ruuning but smps is ok when jpw1 is disconnected then fan is running but mother board is not on

Hello hare is the homepage:

Try to download the manual, and check all your connections again.

Try also to renew the power supply.

Check also this site:

The jpw1 is the main power connection for power to the cpu:
So you probably have a bad power supply.

Good luck

I am working on a KT3 Ultra CE MS-6380E ver.1 mother board. The original problem was that nothing run after I pushed the power switch. I thought the Power Supply went out so I replaced the power supply but...

Sounds like the board or processor has failed. You will have checked all the power connectors to the board? Usual fix is a new board, rather than trying to find which component on the board has failed.

Board will not boot.power supply changed

The power supply and motherboard have a connection (4pin) that communicate to each other. Without this connection, the board will not boot and the power supply will not come on.
The power supply can be fooled by jumping certain pins, but the motherboard must be connected.
Please consult your motherboard manual for the location of this connector.
Visit this site for more clarification please.

MSI MS-1010 Power supply socket appears to be loose/damaged.

try to look closely if it can be resoldered. Take note there are some pins that are multi-layer-connected and resoldering might be impossible for the loose parts. Whatever you've done with the connector is what I'm curious with...remember it has a locking tab at one side before you can pull it out. If it's an old mobo you might need to upgrade it with the memory and cpu altogether.
