SOURCE: Is It required to connect Tower Front Panel I/O to Motherboard

The power button on the front panel would definitely need to be hooked up to the motherboard so you can power up the computer.

If you have any usb slots or a media card reader on the front panel, or both, then you would need to hook those up as well, otherwise the main one you need to connect would be the power button.

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: . The full manual is near the bottom of the list. The direct link to the English version of the manual is . 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 the wiring chart for a mcp61pm-am motherboard

Gateway Support > Gateway MCP61PM-AM motherboard,

Click on - Product Views

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front panel go to, is the Front panel header.

If you need the pinout for the Front Panel header, click on -
S- Front Panel Connector

Looking at the different colors on the Front Panel header, and matching pin numbering;
Pin 2 = Orange with Yellow + sign.
Pin 4 is solid Orange.
Pin 6 is Green.
Pin 8 is Green
There is NO Pin 10.

Pin 1 is Red with a Yellow + sign.
Pin 3 is solid Red
Pin 5 is Blue
Pin 7 is Blue
Pin 9 is solid Yellow.

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. Reserved for +5 Volts, and factory use.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED. (Light)
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR ON 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 blank spot. (Yellow)

Click on B - Processor Core Power, for the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable connector, location on the motherboard.

[ Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right;
the square white 4-socket hole connector, is straight over to the left, from the bottom left corner of the Processor socket ]

On the U - Intrusion Switch Connector?
I believe the style of switch used, is if it is open, then the computer will not work.
Therefore connect a small wire to those two pins.
(Same thing as the switch is Closed)

Need Molex female metal terminals?

Could I be wrong about how the switch works? Yes.
Could be the alternate style where the switch is open, and removing the computer case cover, closes it.
In this case do not connect a jumper wire.

All the other wiring connections are shown.
Have a specific question on the wiring? Post back in a Comment.

I need a wiring diagram to install my Ultra Durable Motherboard model GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3

This is Gigabyte Support, and the main support page for the Gigabyte GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3 motherboard,

On this page I invite you to click on the Downloads tab.
(Overview, Specifications, Downloads, News/Awards, etc)

To the right of the Download Type box, click on the blue down arrow.
Click on Manual.

You want the third file down,

English - 1001 - pdf - 28.91MB - 2011/05/02

Under the Download Here heading, click on the name of the country nearest yours.

This is a PDF file. It may take up to 30 seconds before you will see the first page.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.
(The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files)

[ I'm using Adobe Reader X (10), and a medium speed DSL connection. Took over 65 seconds to download, clicked on America. Longest PDF file download I have had in a long time ]

Page 7 shows a layout of the motherboard.
Processor to the Top, Ram Memory to the Right, the Front Panel header is to the bottom right corner.

{The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

Page 23

Page 28 - Front Panel pinout

The Front Panel header is parallel to the bottom edge of the motherboard, and lays out horizontally.
Two rows of 10 pins. Total of 20 pins.

The Top row is numbered Evenly. Pins 2 through 20.

Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, and 20.

The Bottom row is numbered Odd. Pins 1 through 19.

Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, and 19.

A) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.
(If there is a Positive { + } wire it goes to Pin 6)

B) Pins 10 and 12 are not shown. No Pins 10 and 12.

Pins 14, 16, 18, and 20 are for an internal speaker.
This speaker is used for BIOS Beep Codes.

C) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
The red LED that blinks when the harddrive is actively in use.

(Pin 1 is for the Positive wire { + }
If the LED light is dim when operating, switch the wires )

D) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch, IF used.
(You can go through Task Manager, and do the same thing.
OR you can also simultaneously press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys)

E) Pins 9 and 11 are for a Chassis Intrusion switch.

If the computer cover is removed there is no power to the motherboard.
This is IF a chassis intrusion switch is connected to these two pins.

It may have the style that the switch is in the open position, allowing No electricity to pass through to the motherboard, when the computer cover is removed.

Or it may have the style where the switch closes, and connects to Ground, when the computer cover is removed. Again no electricity is allowed to pass through to the motherboard.

Test to see which way works. Jumper wire across these two pins.
Default setting is probably nothing connected to these two pins.

F) No Pin 13

G) Pins 15, 17, and 19 are for the Power On LED light.

There are three pins for using a dual color LED light.

Pins 15 and 17 are for the Positive wires.
One pin goes to one color (Side) of the LED light, the other pin is connected to the other color (Side) of the LED light.

Pin 19 is for the Ground { - } wire.

Dual color LED lights were used if a computer had 'Turbo' mode. The computer was supposed to operate faster in Turbo mode.
In reality the computer operated at normal speed in Turbo mode, and lesser speed in the normal mode.

If your Power On LED light is a single color LED, connect the Positive { + } wire to Pin 15, and the Negative { - } wire to Pin 19.

As for the wires coming from the Front Panel, you'll have to trace them down to see what is what.
Power On switch wires, Power On LED wires, etc.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

How can i disable chassis intrusion on p5kpl-am se board? the board don't have any intrusion switch...

For the chassis intrusion circuit to work, the chassis power supply must be connected to AC power. By default, on the motherboard the pin labeled chassis "signal" and "ground" are shorted with a jumper cap. You need to remove the jumper caps if you intend to use the chassis intrusion
hope this helps

Case switch connected to motherboard is messed up. i need a new switch for the case or the configuration for the pins on the motherboard to be able to use a new case/new switch

The Power On switch is located inside the plastic Power On button assembly.

It is a Momentary Contact Switch, and is named an ATX power on switch.
This ATX Power On switch I have found fits many computers,

The plastic front panel of a desktop computer is the Front Panel.
The pin area on the motherboard, that the cables (Wires) from the Front Panel connect to, is the Front Panel header.

Tell me the manufacturer name, and Model Number of the computer, or tell me the manufacturer name, and Model Number of the motherboard, and let me see if I can find a Pinout for it's Front Panel header.
(What pins the cables connect to)

I am getting the fatal error chasis intruded error on every boot...motherboard model is p5sd2vm...rahul

Chassis intrusion can be disabled one of two ways.

First, Check your bios settings. There should be a security or PC health section where you can clear that error and disable the intrusion warning.

Second, there is likely a small switch near the chassis side when the side panel is removed. This is the chassis intrusion switch. It will likely lead to a 2 or 3-pin connection on the motherboard. this can be disconected without any ill effects.
