Hi everyone,

I had the same issues and below worked for me and I wanted to share this as I did not find anything in the internet about this board. Also Sony and Asus did not reply on my mails to their support. So I searched Ebay for Sony VAIO models with this board and kindly asked the sellers to send me pictures from inside the PC, so I can figure out the PIN layout. And hey there are nice people out there, one seller sent me the pictures.

PANEL1:
19 Pin front panel header (Power switch, HDD LED, Power LED, Standby LED):
Pin layout (01 is upper left, 19 lower right, between 14 and 15 there is no pin=key):
01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10
11 12 13 14 XX 15 16 17 18 19

The connectors from the original Sony case (PCV-RSM22) connect like this (this should also make it easy to adept to other cases):

Power Switch (white/purple):
white: 11
purple: 12

HDD activity LED:
white: 14
blue (bridged to two pins): 08 + 13

Power LED:
white: 15
orange: 16

Standby LED:
white: 01
red: 02

I hope that Sony did not mix or change things with different revisions of boards... it´s your own risk to follow above...



USB1:
16 Pin front USB header (two USB ports, seems to be USB1.1):
01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08
09 10 11 12 13 14 15 16

01: red = 5V
02: white = D-/Data-
03: green = D+/Data+
04: black = ground
05: red = 5V
06: white = D-/Data-
07: green = D+/Data+
08: black = ground

Your motherboard only supports USB v1.1, make sure those are they type of connectors on your case, and if so, open this document and go to page 2-16 for diagram: http://dlcdnas.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock478/p4sdr-vm/e1104_p4sdr-vm.pdf

if the case only has USB v2.0 plugs, you cannot connect them.

Front 4 usb ports and microphone and headphone jacks don't work but the rear usb and speaker jacks do work. I've had the computer new since 2009 and they have never worked.


it sounds to me like the wires from the front panel connectors are not connected to the motherboard inside the computer case, open the case up find the front connectors wires inside and find out if there are any connectors on the motherboard to plug them into.
the reason the rear ones work is because they are soldered directly to the motherboard.
good luck.

Compaq dc 7600 small form factor, front usb and audio not recognized


Hello,
I am assuming you have moved the board to another case and have connected front-mounted card readers etc. but none are working. I would check in device manager and see if there are any devices with exclamation points beside them.....which would indicate that windows sees the device, but that you are missing some of the drivers for the board which can be downloaded from HP. If you have devices in device manager that are labelled "unknown device", then a program like SIW or unknown devices may help you determine which drivers to get. A safe bet would be to go to HP's download section and get everything available for that board.

Also, check the bios and ensure that "plug and play OS" is set to on or yes

I would also look in the bios/setup and ensure that the connectors on the board are actually turned on. USB headers on motherboards are pretty generic, meaning that you should be able to plug in pretty much any front panel device (audio,card readers,usb).

Please check these things and get back to me. If you need instructions on how to do any of this stuff, then get back to me and I will be happy to help further.

Hope this helps!!

Where can I find the pin configuration for this motherboard


http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Shared/4006272R/4006272Rnv.shtm

Click on Product Views.
D - CPU Fan Connector (Processor Fan)
F - Main Power Connector

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

G - Floppy Disk Drive Connector
H - Parallel ATA IDE Connector
M - Clear CMOS Jumper
N - Front Audio Connector (Audio ports in Front Panel)
O - S/PDIF Connector
P - System Fan Connector (Computer Case Fan)
Q - IEEE 1394 Connector (Firewire ports in Front Panel)
R - USB Connectors (Front Panel)

S - Front Panel Connector
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.
The above is the pinout for the Front Panel header.

T - SATA Connectors
A SATA data connector on the motherboard has 7 contact pins.
Between it, and the SATA power cable, the SATA data cable's connector is shorter in width,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_ports.jpg

Note the L shaped slot in the SATA data cable's connector, at top;
and the corresponding L-shaped locating lug on the motherboard connector, shown at bottom.

SATA power cable general example,

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

The SATA power cable's connector has a Lock tab on top. Squeezed down with the thumb tip to release when removing.

Looking at the 6 SATA connectors on the motherboard, you will note they are marked in-between the connectors, and at the outside edge of the motherboard. SATA_1, SATA_3, SATA_5, SATA_2, etc.

If using more than 1 harddrive, the harddrive that has the Operating System, is generally plugged into SATA_1.

The beauty of SATA is however, that you can plug whatever SATA device you want, into whatever SATA connector on the motherboard, and BIOS will find the device.

Mean, for one,that you can plug the harddrive with the O/S into SATA_3, or SATA_6, or SATA_4, etc; and BIOS will still find it.

Scroll down to the photo under the Specifications chart. It's a Top View.
The power cable, and corresponding connector on the motherboard that is Not stated on Gateway Support, is a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

Motherboard in the Top view is shown as it is, when installed in a computer case. Go above the top of the Processor socket to the edge of the motherboard, then over to the left.

Whitish square 4-socket hole connector.
4-pin ATX +12 Volt.

Above the top right corner of the Processor socket, and between the edge of the motherboard is the CPU_FAN connector.

Front Panel header bottom/right corner of motherboard

The four Yellow USB headers are to the left of the Front Panel header.

The Black Firewire (IEEE 1394) header is to the left of the USB headers.

The SYSTEM_FAN white connector is to the left of the Firewire connector.

SPDIF_OUT connector to the left of the System Fan connector.

F_AUDIO red connector to the left of the SPDIF connector

To the right of the Blue and Yellow ram memory slots, is the 24-pin ATX main power cable connector. To the right of it is the Black 34-pin Floppy Drive connector.

Below the Floppy Drive connector is the Blue 40-pin IDE connector.

Plugigng of wire in board


Hello there,


Below is an image of *********** Board with number indication and wiring explanation. From your manual page 1-6 you can see the image below and 1-7 for the connector, jumpers, slots. as indicated in your problem I will only answer problems related to the wirings.


pcsyke_115.jpg

  • For the Front Panel


pcsyke_117.jpg
1. There are 8 wires from the front panel's casing, excluding USB connectors and front audio cable.

2. Just plug the front panel switch headers to the F_Panel main board connectors. 1 & 2 are positive, if the led do not light change polarity but Im sure it will.

Note:The mainboard provides a front panel connector for electrical connection to the front panel switches and LEDs. JFP1 is compliant with Intel® Front Panel I/O Connectivity Design Guide.


  • For the USB connectors


pcsyke_118.jpg

1. If your casing has a USB header on the front bezel you can put it on any connector. You can also purchase a USB module cable or an internal card reader and plug the headers to any of those connectors.


Note: Observe Polarity, do this Vcc, -Data, +Data, Gnd ,(NC) ground is always near to NC.

Plug it at your own risk, reference image are already shown.


  • Front Panel Audio connectors


pcsyke_119.jpg
1. Look for FP_Audio header from your casing and plug it to the connector.

*Asus recommend you connect a high definition front panel audio module to this connector to avail of the motherboard's high-definition audio capability.



Hopefully this information helps.

GA-8S650GXM FOR USB FRONT AUDIO PANEL


You will need the motherboards manual to help you with connecting USB_1, USB_2 and F_PANEL audio to you're case. If you do not have you're manual for the GA-8S650GXM you can download it from Gigabyte; http://america.giga-byte.com/FileList/Manual/motherboard_manual_8s650gxm_series_e.pdf
You will also need Adobe reader installed to view the manual.
Gigabyte GA-8S650GXM main web site; http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=1658
Turn to page 18. Number 17, F_USB1/F_USB2. Use the link provided below to help you connect you're front case USB wires to the motherboard; http://www.directron.com/installusb.html
Turn to page 24, for front audio connections. Keep in mind once you configure you're audio to function from you're cases front audio port you will not be able to use the rear audio port. Caution, most people find bumping any front case USB or audio cords break far too easely. To avoid breaking the front audio port, consider using a Y splitter for the rear audio port as shown in the next link; http://shopping.yahoo.com/p:StarTech.com%20MUY1MFF%20Audio%20Video%20Cable:1991733360;_ylt=Ah94ikZN9zDbTi2.arc45BkbFt0A

Front panel connectors/jacks is not working


OK--usually what you will find from the front is 3 connectors.
One will be a solid block that has one blank hole which is the key. That will plug into the corresponding pins on the motherboard--usually toward the back of the case.
There will be another other wire that terminates in two plastic connectors. These are the USB connectors. Sometimes the connectors are in two parts. One is a 3-hole and one is a 1-hole. Usually you will find two sets as they sort of go together.
The pin configuration on the motherboard looks like this ::::.
The single pin on the end is not used. The other ones are connected with the plastic connector on the first three starting at the left, with the end marked VCC to the left. The fourth pin is the ground which is usually the separate connector.
The second USB connectors are plugged in right next to the first--so each block of pins controls 2 USB ports.
Hope this helps.

Pluging in extra usb ports/Mic and headphone jacks from the tower


Answer me this. You're case is an Antec tower? The motherboard is the Asus P4P800 SE ? Is this correct?
If you have you're manual you can see what goes where on the board for front panel connector page. 2-31. (This diagram shows you how to connect the front mic & speaker).
To connect the Antec's front USB ports plug the case USB front connectors onto USB56 & USB78 shown on page. 2-30. Most case wires are already set within their USB connectors & the Antec's front USB connector should fit right on the mother board's pin's. If you need you're user manual, download from Asus by clicking on this link. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4P800%20SE&SLanguage=en-us

Good Luck!
