Question about Dell OptiPlex GX270 PC Desktop
I am in need of a layout to install the Insert connections on the proper pins of a 34 pin Front Panel SATA Dell GX270 motherboard. I'm certainly NOT illiterate--READ my request, for those in NEED, I WILL REPEAT THE REQUEST: I am in need of a layout to properly connect the POWER SWITCH, POWER LED, HARD DRIVE, RESET SWITCH to my DELL SATA GX270-----34 pin (I REPEAT 34 PIN) FRONT PANEL PINS. My question has nothing to do with PATA or SATA connections. If anyone has an answer for me, I will be grateful.
Get a strong flashlight and a magnifying glass (if you have one). 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. On some boards there are no colours but the markings are the same, so take a good close look.
Have a look at these pictures for an idea >>>>>>
Please post back with the results and any more advice if needed.
Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Sadly, Dell does not give a pin-out for this header. We only know to hook pin 1 to pin 1, and 34 to 34.
beyond that, you're down to using a volt-meter in continuity test mode, to trace down individual connections on the disconnected option board.

Link to GX system board layout: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx270/en/ug/index.htm
It's all on a small board and control panel, both of which connect via ribbon cables. Have you removed the power switch, etc from theseboards?
