Take a picture of your motherboard and then make printed copy. Call the technical service department and give them the make of your computer and model number, also give them the name of the motherboard and its model number with revisions. Ask them to look up the wiring diagram showing the external connector hook-up from the case to the motherboard. Write down the pin connections on the photo. You can share this information with other people who are having the same problems. Remember to always take a pictures of your set up before disassembling the unit. So you can reassemble the unit correctly. These units are so proprietary that it is almost impossible to find this information without their help. Hope this helps you with your problem.
