  • Henrik14 Apr 22, 2008

    Need MANUAL for same MB (without + at end of designation) to connect power switch, reset switch etc. On MATSONIC site this MB is NOT listed, so no drivers nor manuals exist too. It cannot be found by simple search, therefore I and others ask for help. Your answer is NOT helpful in THIS case, so try harder, PLEASE?

Yap you can see the lay out on the user manual. like PIn 1-3 or 1-2 like that and the mother board will show which one is the 1st pin.

if you dont have a manual then you need to download it from the manufacturer's site of the motherboard in the download or support section.

Need wiring diagram for placement of the internal cables in Compaq Presario SR5410F

Top view photo of the motherboard, of an MSI MS-7525 motherboard made FOR HP by MSI, for a Compaq Presario SR5410F Desktop PC,

Also scroll down the page, and click on the + sign to the left of -
Motherboard Layout.

A) 24-pin ATX main power cable:

In the photo, look to the right of the Blue ram memory slots.

The Yellowish/Whitish connector to the right of them, with two columns of 12 socket holes, is where the 24-pin ATX main power cable plugs in.

In the Motherboard Layout it is marked by - ATX1

This is a general example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

Note the middle photo, and the Lock on the side of the power cable's connector. The Lock has a hooked end that goes over a Tab, on the motherboard's connector.

The Lock works like a see-saw on a playground. The top is squeezed in, and this brings the hooked end away from the Tab, in order to remove the power cable.
When assured that the power cable is plugged in tightly, and therefore correctly, the hooked end of the Lock will be over the motherboard connector's Tab.

B) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable:

In the center of the motherboard, under the Processor socket, is the Northbridge chip. (Part of the motherboard chipset)
It is under a finned aluminum Heatsink, that resembles a meat tenderizer's head.

Draw an imaginary line up above it, in-between the Processor socket, and the aluminum finned Heatsink, and go straight LEFT.
See the whitish 4-socket hole square connector?

In the Motherboard Layout it is marked by - JPW1

This is where the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable plugs in. It is power for the Processor. Has the same locking setup as the 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's motherboard connector.

C) In the Motherboard Layout to the top left corner of ram memory Slot 1, (DIMM1), is where the Processor fan connects.

D) In the Motherboard Layout just below JPW1 is where the computer case fan plugs into. SYS_FAN1

E) In the Motherboard Layout - SATA1 - is where the SATA Harddrive data cable plugs into. (Below ram memory slots)

The SATA power cable from the power supply, plugs into the SATA harddrive. Note that the SATA power cable's connector, is longer in length than the SATA data cable's connector.

[SATA power cable has 15-pin. SATA data cable has 7-pins ]

Note that both cable's connectors, have an L-shape on the inside.

This is what a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable looks like,

IF, your SATA harddrive has a provision for a SATA power cable, AND a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, ONLY use just the SATA power cable!

Otherwise you will burn up the SATA harddrive. May not happen right away, but I assure you it will happen!

[ A note on SATA.
The beauty of SATA, is that you can plug into ANY SATA connector on the motherboard, and BIOS will see it.

If you plug the Harddrive into SATA 1, or SATA 2, or SATA 3, or SATA 4, connector on the motherboard, IT DOES NOT MATTER.
BIOS will find the Harddrive, or optical drive ]

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

In the Motherboard Layout illustration, the Front Panel header is down at the Bottom/Right corner, and is marked - JFP1.
(Right in the very bottom/right corner is JUSB2. JFP1 is right above it)

JFP1. Junction Front Panel 1.
9-pin header. Black rectangle.
5 pins on the Right side, 4 pins on the Left side.

The pins are numbered EVEN on the LEFT side.
Starting on the BOTTOM going UP;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

The pins are numbered ODD on the RIGHT side.
Starting on the BOTTOM going UP;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED.
(Light Emitting Diode, so it is a 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. 5 Volt power, and reserved for the factory to use.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED.
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.

I need to know if the Intel Desktop Board D865GBF/D865GLC on the main power connector, in the pin 18 have -5vdc or NC.

Here is the pin-out for the power connector:
These connections are common for all the motherboards, so there is no reason for looking for intel motherboard's layout. If the power connector has 24 pins (the new motherbords) the 18th pin is "com", id the connector has 20 pins (the old motherboards) the 18th pin is "nc". The Intel D865GBF motherboard has a power connector for 20 pins and a separate one 20 pin connector, here is the layout:
In case you'd like to have the motherboard's product guide here is an official link for you to download it.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Power source for ecm and destination of efi fuse for ford mondeo 2.0 16v mk 1 zetec south african make and a pin layout of ecm

Hello! The ZETEC engine was used in the 1999 Ford Escort...I do not know what year your vehicle is, however the pin layouts are the same...

The Fuel Injector Fuse (30A) feeds the injectors via normally open contacts of the PCM Power Relay on a Red/White wire (which becomes Red at the injectors) on pin #12 of the Constant Control Module...
The wire colors of injector control leads (at the injectors) are..#3=Brown/Yellow...#1=Tan...#4=Brown/Light Blue...And #2=White

Wire colors at the PCM plug are...#3=Brown/White (pin 74)...#1=Yellow (pin 75...#4=Green/Orange (pin100)...and #2=Violet/Yellow (pin 103)...

Size restrictions on attachments do not allow me to send the entire PCM...aka...ECM pin layout to you...

Front panel pin layout. I need the front panel pin layout especially for the HD IDE active LED.

Trial n Error is your best bet on the control pins panel there are two rows, with the power plugged in,with a screwdriver touch adjacent two pins together at a time starting with the top row then the bottom row, when you touch the right two pins your motherboard will power-up, then place the power-switch plug onto those two pins (the writing on the plug facing innwards toward the mainboard) the two pins for the reset switch and 99.9% of the time located directly next to the power switch or directly above the the power pins on the other row. For the LED lights you will have to just try the different pins and the Power LED will remain on as long as your mboard is on, but to find the LED pins for the Harddrive you will have to plug in your HDD and then when it powers up try the pins and the led for the HDD will flicker on-off, that would be the correct one. Dont worry your mboard will not be damaged by this in any way. Goodluck and let me know how you go. Thanks
