    Hm that's the problem.
    My Motherboard named "M871G v.1.5" but it doesn't got those coloured pins , and they are labeled, either.

Hi there.
On the motherboard look for the front panel, it should be marked PWR and coloured green, also the plug that connects to it should be marked PWR_SW.
Have a look at these pictures for an idea >>>>>>

Hard Drive Activity LED
Connecting pins 1 and 3 to a front panel mounted LED provides visual indication that
data is being read from or written to the hard drive. For the LED to function properly,
an IDE drive should be connected to the onboard IDE interface. The LED will also
show activity for devices connected to the SCSI (hard drive activity LED) connector.
Power/Sleep/Message waiting LED
Connecting pins 2 and 4 to a single or dual-color, front panel mounted LED provides
power on/off, sleep, and message waiting indication.
Reset Switch
Supporting the reset function requires connecting pin 5 and 7 to a momentarycontact
switch that is normally open. When the switch is closed, the board resets and
runs POST.
Power Switch
Supporting the power on/off function requires connecting pins 6 and 8 to a momentary-
contact switch that is normally open. The switch should maintain contact for at
least 50 ms to signal the power supply to switch on or off. The time requirement is
due to internal de-bounce circuitry. After receiving a power on/off signal, at least two
seconds elapses before the power supply recognizes another on/off signal

Good luck

Where doe's power led,power sw,hdd led on my e-machine


You will need the user's manual for your machine to make sure that you are hooking the wires up correctly. However, most motherboards label these connections directly on the motherboard next to their pins.
Look for an area on the mother motherboard with two rows of six to eight pins. Next to them you should labels such as PWR_SW (power switch), RST_SW (reset switch), HDD_LED, PWR_LED, etc. You won't mess anything up connecting something to the wrong pins, but it isn't that hard to figure out as the wires are usually labeled in the same manner as the pins. So HDD_LED would plug into the HDD_LED pins, PWR_SW to PWR_SW, etc.

I need help connecting the power on cable and led cable as well as the hard drive light cable. for my emachine w3644


These cables are attached in the lower right corner of the motherboard. There are two rows of pins there. Probably 10 pins in all. They should be marked with letters something like hdled (hard drive LED), pwr (power light) pwr sw (power switch) spk (speaker) etc. Anyway, if you can't find markings, hooking the little plugs up to sets of the pins one plug at a time will tell you which works.You can't hurt anything by trying various combinations

I don´t have the foxconn motherboard manual "661m08"


Most mobo's have the connection points printed on them. Use a strong flashlight and look for some pins that have the following words printed near them (PW or PWR, RS or RST, HDD LED, etc) They should all be grouped together in the same corner of the mobo. Have you tried googling the motherboad name to find a manual? I have done that on a few occasions and got lucky.

I'd like to know the sequence to connect the following connectors:power sw, reset sw, power led, hdd led from the front panel to the motherboard (motherboard foxconn sis 651 m03. Thanks West


If your board is the one in this manual, the pins are located very close to the CMOS battery. Page 21 in that manual shows the diagram. Power LED is the top two left pins. Hard disc LED is the bottom two left pins. Power switch is the top two right pins. Reset switch is pins 3-4 on the bottom row. Pin 5 on the bottom is not used.
