How to connect power to the front panel

Power to the Front Panel?

A) The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel

B) The area of pins sticking up on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

I believe what you are requesting is the Front Panel header pinout.

AsRock Support > AsRock 775i65GV Motherboard > Main Support Page,

Go to the headings on the upper left side.
Products, Motherboard Series, 775i65GV, Overview and Specifications, and so on. Click on - Manual

On the next page go across from the heading - User Manual, and click on - Click Here, under the country nearest yours.

Disregard if you are aware;
This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.

At the top of the PDF file is the page number box. It is to the right of the Down Arrow.
You can use the Down Arrow to arrive at the page you want, or;

1) Put your mouse cursor in the page number box.
2) Left-click once. (Contents in page number box will be highlighted in blue)
3) Type the page number you want in the page number box.
4) Press the Enter key

Go to Page 10
This page shows an illustration of the motherboard, and as it sits in your computer case.
To the bottom Right corner is the Front Panel header. It is marked by the number - 16 [ System Panel Header ( PANEL_1) ]

{ It is the second header over from the Right side. It is Black in color. The first header is a USB header, and it is Blue }

Now go to Page 22. Front Panel Header Pinout. (System Panel Header pinout)

If you cannot download this motherboard manual, or if you do not understand the pinout;

There are 4 pins across the Top row.
There are 5 pins across the Bottom row.

The Top row of pins are numbered Even
The Bottom row of pins are numbered Odd.

Starting at the LEFT side going to the Right, on the Top row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

Starting at the LEFT side going to the Right, on the Bottom row;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive Activity LED light.
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
IF the LED light is dim when operating, switch the two wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset Switch, IF, a Reset switch is used.
Pin 5 is for Ground ( - )

C) Pin 9 is Not Connected. (N/C)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the LED light is dim, switch the two wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

Page 21 details out the USB front panel headers, (USB 2.0 Header, Shared USB 2.0 Header), and the Front Panel Audio Header.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Where is the reset button on the ASRock 775vm800 motherboard?

There is no reset button, if you wish to reset the Bios, you have to take out the battery and re-insert it after few minutes. But if you wish to get the front panel connection, you need to consult the manual. Open the manual by clicking this LINK, scroll down to page no.19 and refer the illustrated diagram given there (System Panel Header 9 Pin Panel_1).
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I need help with connecting my case wires to the motherboard

those wires are for the USB not audio,the meaning of the
writing no the wires are:
vcc=5 volts, -D=data negative, +D= data positive,GND=ground.
look in the manual for usb connection, if the mainboard has the header connection for them connect the wires to it if not just leave them out, secure them out of the way.

New motherboard

You don't say what case you are using. If it is proprietary and the front panel header is all in one connector, you can carefully back the connector pins out of the block using precision screwdrivers. I keep a bunch of two pin connectors from junked machines so I can create individual connector sets when changing motherboards (eg, PWR SW, PWR LED, HDD LED and RESET). This also requires that you know the pinouts of both the old board and the new one so you can get everything connected properly.

Very doubtful you will ever find an adapter to change from one front panel block to another.

The 9-pin connector probably uses a spacer pin between the legs of the PWR LED, while it seems the 6-pin does not have RESET.

Problem with microphone

most of the old motherboards dont support the audio and mic port to work both in back side(back panel header) and front side (front panel header)simultaneously...

most of the old motherboards dont support multi streaming so you cant make both the back panel header and front panel header to work at a time ie i mean you cant connect both panel header at a time ...

you can just refer to your motherboard manual for the detailed information about it ..

in your motherboard if there is any option to connect the front panel header to the motherboard other than the back panel header you can connect it to that the detailed pin information will be given in the motherboard manual ..

if you dont have the option in the motherboard to connect the front panel header seperately then you must remove the pins connected from the back panel header and you must insert the front panel header pins .
this will disable your back panel audio ,mic,linein functionalities but you will be able to connect in front panel header , this front panel header will work ..

if the motherboard is not compatible then the system assembler will leave the front panel wires not connecting to motherboard ..

like this only one panel can work at a time ,
but in the latest motherboards the multi streaming technology has been introduced so both the panels can work at a time and can play different audio on 2 different panels ...

thank you
any doubts you can reply me
i am always here to assist you
please rate my solution
have a nice day

ECS 755 A2 motherboard problems

Make sure you have the correct front panel header connected correctly to the case wires. Open you're manual to page 12 under the English section. There you'll find a picture of the front panel header & how to connect the case's LED's to the motherboard.
If you no longer have the manual you can download it from ECS at this link.
Chances are you may have the wire's connect backwards. (Positive + connected to the negative - ECT).
Example, pin 1 is the + for hard disk drive & pin 3 is - for the hard disk drive. Cases vary on wire colors, normally if each connector has a common colored wire (solid color) that common wire would be the negative. Stripped wires are negative. Other cases use white colored wires as negative & colored wires as positive. As far as you not receiving any display. Try removing the AGP card & clean the copper contacts. Clean with alcohol.
Place a couple drops onto a cotton swab & clean the copper, both sides. Blow out the AGP slot with canned air. Re-check all connections, power & data cables before closing the case. Power on the system & check the front led's for operation.
If you still fail to get display, re-check the connection from the monitor to the case. Try you're monitor on another system. If good than you're video card could be bad. You're motherboard can run an 8x/4x speed AGP 1.5volt (only) graphics card.

Good luck zeratu_l !
