Trying to install an ASUS H81M-C Mainboard with Intel core i5-4460. No way to turn on. Mainboard's Power led is on. Nothing happens at all. All connections are OK. Anyone has an idea? Thanks.


When you say that all connections are ok, you understand that we have to verify as this is the most common problem that occurs when installing motherboards. Obviously you have the large connector from the power supply plugged in since you have the power led on the motherboard. This is good. There is also the ATX 12V CPU 4-pin power connector that must be connected just above and to the left of the CPU. But the most often messed up arrangement are the front panel connections to the motherboard at the lower right corner. This is a 9-pin connector block (actually 10, but top right corner pin not there and bottom right not used).

In the link attached, go to page 26 of the pdf, which is page 1-18 of the manual. At the top of the page is a drawing of the connector block. The green power led takes the first two pins in the top row from the left. The connector plug should have a green and a white wire. The green is the positive and goes on the left pin of the pair.
Right below that is the two pins for the HDD light. This plug should have red and white wires. The red wire is positive and goes to the left pin of the pair. Going back to the top, the power button is the remaining two pins. These wires can vary in color from case to case, but if you don't see a label, just follow them back to the power switch to figure out which pair they are. This connector can be installed either way, there is no fixed polarity. The remaining two pins are for the reset switch, which some cases have and some don't. This connection does not to be used.

If you have everything correct and the unit still won't power up, then you need to verify that the power switch is working. If you have a reset switch, it is easy to test, just switch the reset and power button connectors and press and release the reset button and see if the board powers up. If you don't have a reset switch, remove the connector from the power button pins and carefully short them together for a brief second, which simulates pressing the power button. If it still doesn't power up, then there is something wrong with the motherboard.

One last thing, if the front panel connectors are all installed into one plug (which some manufacturers like DELL does, and you are installing this motherboard into their case, be sure to verify that the wires on the connector goes to the appropriate front panel switches/indicators, as these connector blocks are not fully standardized.

I am looking for MCP61PM-HM (Nettle) 9 pin front panel power header diagram


This motherboard Adam?

OH, I'm just KIDDING!

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

On the motherboard the Front Panel header is marked as PANEL1.
Scroll the page down, until you come to Motherboard layout.
Click on the + sign to the left of it.

Shows an illustration of the motherboard.
Bottom/Right corner is PANEL1. The black rectangle that is sitting vertically, in the motherboard photo.

Motherboard installed in computer case, the Front Panel header is two columns of contact pins.
FOUR on the Right side, FIVE on the Left side.

I don't know the actual numbering of the pins, so I'm going to number them myself;

Starting on the Left side at the Top, going down,
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

Starting on the Right side at the Top, going down,
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

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. If not, do not connect to them.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. It was a +5 Volt power for the factory.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED (Light)
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the Power 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) NO pin 10, just a blank spot.

How to find out what wires are what, in that Front Panel harness connector?

Follow the wires from the connector, up to the Front Panel.

Front Panel removed it is easier to see where the wires go.
You can follow the color code of the wires, and see which twisted pair go up to the Power On switch.

You can also see which ones go to the Power On LED.
(Light Emitting Diode, so it is a light)

Reset switch, (IF there is one), same thing.

The only pair of wires that will be left is the HDD LED wires.
HarDDrive activity LED.

The 9-pin plug will have to be CAREFULLY cut apart. Separate the wires, AND their metal terminals. (WATCH your fingers!)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I have purchased a Thermaltake V3 black case and am trying to install my M2N68-LA motherboard. The motherboard has a combined 9 pin header for power switch, power l.e.d. and hdd l.e.d. which was one plug...


1) The 9-pin header you are referring to, is the Front Panel header.

(Processor to the top, Ram Memory slots to the right, the Front Panel header is at the bottom right corner on the motherboard)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00906129&lc=en&cc=de&dlc=&product=3397528

The plastic piece on the front of your computer is the Front Panel.
(Sometimes referred to as a Bezel)

Make a drawing, and notes as to where the individual wires go from that Front Panel header plug, (One-piece plug), to the Front Panel.

Follow the wires from the plug to the Front Panel.

Mark down where Each wire goes.

You may have to take components off of the Front Panel, in order to see exactly where Each wire goes.

For example:
You may have to remove the Power On button/switch assembly from the Front Panel.

It may have the Power On LED light, Power On button, (Switch), and perhaps the HarDDrive LED activity light, in this assembly.

The wires are color coded.

Generally, but not always, when two wires are used in conjunction with each other, (Example, Power On switch, or Power On LED light), the wires will be twisted together.

One wires insulation may be of a solid color, and the other wire may be white, with a stripe in the color of the solid wire.

Example: Wire with Red color, and wire twisted with it may be White, with a Red stripe.

See if these two wires go to the Power On switch.
End of example.

Follow each twisted pair of wires back down to the Front Panel header plug.
(One-piece plug)

See which socket holes the individual wires go to.
Mark it down in your drawing, and notes.

Mark where the individual socket holes plug onto each pin, in that Front Panel header. (9-pin header)

When you are finished, you will have a pinout for the Front Panel header on the Asus M2N68-LA motherboard, and will know where the individual wires go from your ThermalTake V3 computer case.

For the LED lights there is a Positive pin, ( + ), and a Ground pin. (Power On LED, and Harddrive activity LED, for example)

(Ground. Also referred to as the Negative pin. ( - )
This is DC Voltage)

If you have the polarity backwards, (Positive wire of the LED light is going to the Ground pin, Ground wire of the LED light is going to the Positive pin), the LED light will be dim.

(When operating)
Switch the wires around.

If you have questions, or need clarification of what I have stated above, simply state in a Comment.

Which connectors are used for front panel, power on (red @white) and led ( blue @ white) please show a close-up view


Hi,
On the motherboard the pinouts on the front panel should be colour coded, and marked with letters like in this picture >>>>>
ce10baf.jpg

The connectors are also marked corresponding to where the connect on the motherboard, like in this picture >>>>>>
66ce2fc.jpg

If the board is not colour coded then the motherboard will marked with the same letters, you may need a strong light to see the marks.

Usb connection wires from front panel to motherboard


The header plug is 9 pins, 5 on one side and 4 on other. Orient the header so that the missing pin is lower right and the connection left to right on top row and lower row are as follows. If you have a shield wire, do not connect this as it causes instability if the ninth pin is earthed. If you have no markings on the wires, you can test from the socket. Orient with the pins up looking from front socket and left to right is 1,2,3,4 same as header.

Pin Wire Color Function
1 Red V BUS (+5V)
2 White D-
3 Green D+
4 Black Ground

The front 3mm port is disconnected and I don't know where to hook it back up. I can't tell from the manual.


The front 3mm ports are for mic input / headphones output. The pin connectors are as follows. You need to use the JAudio header, which are in the lower-right corner of the motherboard closest to the front of the case when it's installed.

This header has 14 pins, and allows user to connect the front audio out put cable with the PC front panel. It will disable the output on back panel audio connectors.
Within this header, pin 1 is in the lower left corner, and pin 14 is in the upper right corner, like this:

2 ... ... ... 14
1 ... .. ... 13

The pinouts are:

1 Mic in/center
2 Ground
3 Mic power/Bass
4 Audio power
5 Right line out/Speaker out Right
6 Right line out/Speaker out Right
7 Reserved
8 Key
9 Left line out/Speaker out Left
10 Left line out/Speaker out Left
11 Right line in/Rear speaker Right
12 Right line in/Rear speaker Right
13 Left line in/Rear speaker Left
14 Left line in/Rear speaker Left

Their should be a 9 pin header at the bottom right corner of the board. Between the sata headers and the corner. There are two rows of pins in the header, one row has 5 and the other 4. The row with 4 pins has the power switch and the power led pins : : : : . They should be color coded red for the switch and green for the power led. From left to right the first pin is for the led (+) lead, the second pin is for the led(-) lead, the third pin and fourth pin are for the power switch. Also there is a 2 pin header above the 9 pin header that is an alternate power led header, the left pin is (+) and the right is (-). I hope this helps you.
