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: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2691#manual . The full manual is near the bottom of the list. The direct link to the English version of the manual is http://download1.gigabyte.us/Files/Manual/motherboard_manual_ga-73pvm-s2h_e.pdf . 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.

I need a digarm of how the speaker wires in the motherboard


You can try Tiger Direct dot com and look for your m/b.

They usually have diagrams for the speaker pin ID locations numbered 1 thru *16 plus or minus a few in the owners manual I am not positive.
The pins are located on the front side edge usually or along the left hand side edge. Away from the main chip.
There could be other pins on the m/b for speakers to attach but not positive

Find mobo speaker connector


Front or Rear connections? Open the case, it's at the rear of the Mobo. It will be enclosed in the connectors. If you have lost a channel, it may not be easy to repair. A sound card is a option.

M4n68t-m with bad power switch need to jump pin but witch ones


Another one of life's mysteries, and we shall probably never know





OH WAIT! Silly me! I forgot you can go to ASUS SUPPORT, and download the USER MANUAL,

http://www.asus.com/Motherboard/M4N68TM

http://www.asus.com/Motherboard/M4N68TM#support

Click on the Download tab.
(Knowledge Base / Download / Memory/Device Support / etc)

To the right of the - Select OS - box, click on the blue Down Arrow
Click on WinXP. Doesn't matter what Operating System you choose, you are just going for the User Manual. (Motherboard manual)

Give it a few seconds to load.
Scroll down, click on the + sign to the left of - Manual (5)
Scroll down.
Version E5215 M4N68T-M user's manual - English
Click on the blue - Global

A small window will come up -
Opening E5215_M4N68T-M_manual.zip

Make sure the small circle to the left of - Save File, has a Green dot in it.
IF not; left-click in the small circle to the left of - Save File.
Now click on OK below.

A small download window will come up. Allow the file to Fully download, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.
(E5215_M4N68T-M_manual.zip)

In the next window go to the left, and click on - Extract all files
At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on -
Next, Next, and Finish.

In the last window DOUBLE-click on the file name.
E5215_M4N68T-M to the right of the red Adobe PDF icon.

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wires go to, is the Front Panel header.
You need a Front Panel header pinout.

When I refer to a page in the manual, it will be for the Adobe Reader page number box, at the top.
Go to Page 1-7
1.5.3 Motherboard layout

Number 12 shows us the Front Panel header.
Motherboard mounted in computer case, the Front Panel header is the 3rd header from the Left; on the bottom of the motherboard.
(System panel connector (10-1 pin F_PANEL)

Go to Page 1-25
System panel connector (10-1 pin F_PANEL)

There are two rows of pins.
4 pins across the Top row; 5 pins across the Bottom row.
Not numbered, so I will;

Starting on the LEFT side, going across to the Right; Top row,
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10

Starting on the Left side, going across to the Right; Bottom row,
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED. (Light Emitting Diode)
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

C) There is NO Pin 10.

D) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED.
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the Harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

F) Pin 9 is N/C.
Not Connected.
Probably a 5 Volt (DC) point for the factory to test with.
(So it's Reserved for the factory)

Here is an example of an ATX power on switch, that is used in MANY desktop computers,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

Remember; the Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.
This means the contact period you make across those two pins, shouldn't be more than 2 seconds.

Next time you do not know the Front Panel header pinout, of a motherboard;
Use an LED light with two wires.

Touch two pins at a time, going along the FP header.

Computer turns on? You have the Power On switch pins. Now you can continue on.

LED light stays on? You have the Power On LED pins.
LED light blinks? You have the HarDDrive activity LED pins.
Computer restarts? You have the Reset switch pins.

Power On LED winks at you seductively?

Put that left-handed cigarette down, and go get sum fresh air.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

,to the right of the red Adobe PDF icon.

There is your motherboard manual.

I reduced the view size to 75 percent, with the Zoom Out icon ( - ) at the top.
Use the Down Arrow, and go to Page 5. (Adobe Reader page number at top, to the right of the Down Arrow)

Motherboard Layout

Motherboard view shown is actually turned 90 degrees to the Right, in reality to how it actually is mounted in a computer case.

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.

Motherboard installed in computer case, the Front Panel header is to the Right of the CMOS battery, and located in the Bottom/Right corner, placed in a Vertical position.

Two columns of contact pins.
4 in the Left column, 5 in the Right column.

The pins on the Left side are numbered EVEN.
The pins on the Right side are numbered ODD.

Starting at the BOTTOM coming up towards the Top; Left side,
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

Starting at the Bottom coming up towards the Top; Right side,
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light)
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. Probably 5 Volts + for factory testing.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED. (Light)
(Light Emitting Diode)
Pin 2 is for the Positive wire.
If the PWR LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

F) There is NO Pin 10.

Just a start. Do you need what CPU's are supported?

1) Intel Pentium 4, Socket 478 processors that are either Willamette Core, or Northwood Core processors.

A) 400Megahertz Front Side Bus (400MHz FSB)

B) Up To a 2.8GigaHertz (2.8GHz), Socket 478 -> Northwood Core - processor.

(Motherboard manual shows specs for using Intel Celeron's, that use a Socket 478 processor socket, but WHO cares?
'Celeys' aren't worth bothering with )

Starting with Willamette Core. Northwood Core processors are in the next chart. (Socket 478)

The motherboard chipset is a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip,

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:Motherboard_diagram.svg&page=1

(CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short)

The Northbridge chip is a SiS650GX
The Southbridge chip is a SiS 962L, or SiS 962,

http://www.motherboards.org/mobot/chipsets_d/SiS/650GX+962L/

Install Processor first. (Remember to line up the Processor's; Dot/s, or Arrow/s with the processor socket's Dot/s or Arrow/s)
Thermal Paste correctly applied, Heatsink set properly. (F-L-A-T)

Plug Processor fan power wire into motherboard.
(White 3-pin connector to the Top Left corner of the Processor socket, and close to the top edge of the motherboard.
CPU_FAN)

Install Ram Memory.
Install motherboard on Support Plate.

The Support Plate can be a separate metal plate, or is part of the computer case.
When mounting the motherboard to the Support Plate, and NOT using plastic Spacers, but ARE using metal Standoff's;

,make SURE that EVERY Standoff is matched up, to a mounting hole in the motherboard.

IF, there is a Standoff not matched up to a mounting hole, there is a good chance it will touch an exposed solder joint on the bottom of the motherboard, and short the motherboard out.
(Maybe Processor, Ram Memory, graphics card if used, too )

On the back of the computer tower is a thin metal rectangular plate.
This is the I/O area, and the I/O Static Shield.
I/O stands for Input/Output.
Input devices and Output devices are connected in this area.
Mouse, Keyboard, Speakers, etc.

Every motherboard is supposed to come with it's own I/O Static Shield. If there is one already present remove it, use the one that came with the motherboard.
(Watch the edges! May be SHARP!)

Motherboard is installed tilted at an angle, I/O ports down.
Then I/O ports going slightly through the I/O Static Shield, the opposite side is brought down.

Two power cables from the Power Supply to motherboard;
1) 24-pin ATX main power cable;

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

(Note* Color of connectors does NOT matter)

Plugs into the 24-pin ATX main power cable connector, to the right side of the Ram Memory slots.

2) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable;

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

Below the processor socket is the Northbridge chip. It is under that finned aluminum Heatsink, with Foxconn on it.
To the Left is a small 4-socket hole whitish connector.
This is the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable connector, on the motherboard.

The Floppy Disk Drive flat ribbon IDE data cable, goes to the Black 34-pin connector to the Right; of the 24-pin ATX main power cable connector, on the motherboard.

Uses this Small 4-pin Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#floppy

(WATCH the contact pins on the Floppy Drive, for the power cable. They are Sharp as NEEDLES, and will stab you! They BEND real easy too!)

The Harddrive's flat IDE ribbon cable connects to the BLUE 40-pin connector, below the Black Floppy Drive connector.

BOTH, a Floppy Drive flat ribbon cable's connector, and a Harddrive flat ribbon cable's connector, and an Optical Drive flat ribbon cable's connector; have a LUG on one side.

This Lug is to match up with a small square Cutout, in the motherboard's matching connector.

The harddrive, and optical drive should have a square Cutout, in the circuit board.

IF, the cable connectors do Not have a Lug, or there is no Cutout on the Harddrive, or Optical Drive; post back in a Comment, and I'll detail how to correctly hook them up.

USB Headers: F_USB on the motherboard is for using TWO USB ports, in the Front Panel. (Page 22)

Audio Connectors (CD_IN) Page 23, is for the small audio cable that comes from the Main optical drive.
IF, you have two optical drives, use the one you consider the Main one, and attach the CD_IN (Audio cable) to CD_IN on the motherboard.
This connector is to the immediate Left of the number 2 and 3 white PCI slots.

REMEMBER, follow Anti-Static Precautions.

I have motherboard Compaq #277498-001 and can't find power sw


Not sure of your particular MB, but most always the switch is a pair of pins in an array where the front panel LEDs and reset and power switch are.
This array of pins is almost always at the lower right hand side of MB. Assume the components side is facing you and the expansion slots are at your left hand, (where you add extra cards like video etc). then look at the lower right side or bottom edge, mostly right at the edge of the board. Should be an a double row of pins, at least 8 maybe up to 12. Look real close next to these and you may see print indicating which pair do what. PS = power switch. RS = reset, HD = Hard drive LED PLED = power led light.Spk internal beep speaker etc. (Note LEDs require correct polarity to work) Sometimes no print there.. Then you need the manual to decipher pin pairs. Or experiment. All you need to do is make the connection momentarily (like push button) with a small screw driver tip to start it, while looking for correct pins.
If no power on check your power supply connections on the MB. Or suspect either MB or Power supply issue.

Usually this can be found in small print right on the motherboard, use a magnifier and/or flashlight and look next to the pins on the board. In some cases, there is a diagram next to the pins showing the layout.

Panel 2 is the Front Panel header.

(Connector on motherboard is a Header. The Front Panel, is the plastic panel in front of your computer tower. Has the LED lights, Power On switch, and so on.)

Panel 2 connections are shown on Page 15.

Should you not be able to download this manual, I will detail out the connections for the Panel 2 header.

Orient the motherboard, so we are both looking at it the same way.

Processor is at the Top.
Ram Memory slots are to the Right.
Panel 2 is to the right of the CMOS battery, real close to the outside of the motherboard.
(NOT JBAT 1)
It is right below the IDE 1 header for the Harddrive.

The Panel 2 header is made up of 2 rows.
One down the Left side.
One down the Right side.

The pins in the header are numbered.

Starting at the Top, going down the Left side.
Pins 10, 8, 6, 4, and 2.
There is NO Pin 10. Just a blank spot.

Starting at the Top, going down the Right side.
Pins 9, 7, 5, 3, and 1.

Pin 9 has No Connection

Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

Pins 2 and 4 are for the Green LED light.

Pins 1 and 3 are for the Harddrive light.
(Harddrive activity light. Pin 1 is for the + side of the light)

Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch.

I don't remember where all the connections (Power led, sw led, etc.) attach to the motherboard of my HP media center pc 873n. Is there a diagram of the motherboard that shows exactly where everything...


I am not familiar with your exact motherboard, but most commonly, the front panel connectors themselves usually have white print labeling them, and on the motherboard, similar fine white markings will be next to the appropriate pins. This is not always the case, but the front panel pins on the motherboard are usually located near the bottom right hand corner.
