Re: power switch

You could try searching for the manual for the motherboard, I have the same problem every time I disconnect a motherboard.

Sometimes it is printed on the motherboard in dead small writing which wire goes where.

Also usually motherboard manufacturers follow the "unofficial" standard io connectors.



PLED = Power LED/Message LED
HDD = Hard Drive LED
RST = Reset Switch
PSW = Power Switch
SPK = Speaker
NC = Not connected (sometimes not even there)

Note quite often the Reset switch is the reverse of everything else! (i.e. on most if the + is on the right the + is on the left for the Reset

The USB ones usually always follow the following standard


And usually one of the NC pins is no pin as some USB cables have that pin blanked out to ensure you connect them the right way. Note also with USB you start with the VCC then you go straight to negative data, then positive, then ground (again the - and + data bits, like the reset are in reverse of normal reading - the are right to left, not left to right!)

Finally if your not sure which cable is + and which is - the - ones are normally either black or white (most of them are white, except the speaker ones which are black - I presume that goes back to the colour scheme of red and black for positive and negative in audio equipment) and the + ones are normally some colour.

Re: power switch

Just look for the manual of the model that you have. That is the only way you can connect it correctly. Look in the internet or the motherboard brand website itself, it surely provide the necessary documentation that you need.

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.

What you are asking for is a Front Panel header pinout.

I do not have the exact Front Panel header pinout, for your motherboard.
Tell you what I do have though..........

Looking at the Front Panel header on the Ebay link, for the Winfast 760m02-GX-6LRS; the Front Panel header looks to be below the CMOS battery, and close to the Bottom edge of the motherboard.

(Motherboard installed in computer case)

Black rectangular strip of plastic, with contact pins sticking up.
Also looks to be a GENERAL set-up for all Winfast motherboards.
(COULD be wrong here)

This is what I am referencing off of,

Go to the third photo down. Here you see the Front Panel wires, connected to the Front Panel header; on the motherboard.
(Below round CMOS battery)

Note that the contact pin on the Bottom row, and all the way to the Right; is NOT being used.
(I'm using a 26 inch HDTV as my primary monitor, so it may be easier for me to see)

Now look at this Front Panel header pinout, for another Winfast motherboard,

(Scroll down a little)

PWRLED is for the Power On LED (Light)
PWRSW stands for Power On switch
HD-LED stands for the HarDDrive activity LED (Light)
RESET stands for a Reset switch, IF USED.

Note where it has a Positive ( + ) sign, next to the pin for the PWRLED.
This is the pin the + wire from the Power On LED connects to.
It is the SAME for every LED that connects to the Front Panel header.

Let's number the contact pins, to make the explanation easier;
Starting at the Left side, Top row; going towards the Right;
Pins 2, 4, 6 and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

Starting on the Left side, Bottom row; going towards the Right;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

Pin 2 is for the Positive wire.
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire
If the LED's are dim, (PWRLED, and HDD LED), OR; the LED's do not light up, switch the wires around.

(Pin 9 is N/C.........Not Connected. This is probably a 5 Volt test point, that was used by the factory)

There is a method you can use though, and find out what the individual contact pins are, in the Front Panel header;

Use an LED with two wires

Computer (Power Supply) plugged into power, go along the top row, and touch two pins at a time, with the two wires of the LED.

Example; Pins 2 and 4, as shown in the pinout.
Did the Power Supply come on?

Go to the next two pins. Try again.
When the Power Supply comes on, you naturally know that is the two contact pins; for the Power On switch.
DO NOT touch them again. In fact connect the Power On switch wires.

Power Supply on, computer running;
Now go back along again;
1) LED light blinks?
You have the HarDDrive activity LED, contact pins.
2) LED light stays on?
You have the Power On LED, contact pins.
3) Computer restarts?
Those are the Reset switch, contact pins.

4) Nothing happens?
May be contact pins for a speaker, or contact pins that are not used.
(Speaker is for hearing BIOS Beep Codes.
You have a Piezo buzzer, to the Left of the CMOS battery; for that)

Post back in a Comment, as to the results.

If possible, I would like to ask upon you; to post the Front Panel header pinout; when you find what it is.

That way when a person in the future also has this same problem; the solution will be posted on the internet, for them to find.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Hi ! I've got a Winfast 760M02-GX-6ls

First, ensure that the leads from the motherboard to the internal speaker are connected.
Second, try "flipping" the connector, at one end, to make sure that you got the "positive" and "negative" leads correctly connected.

Third, put a multimeter onto the leads on the motherboard, and then turn the computer on,
and watch to see if the multimeter records any voltage where the "beep" should be.

Fourth, try replacing the AMD CPU, if only temporarily.

I have a intel 478 board an don`t know how to connect power poer led

The power led wires ( there are two) go onto the two pins on the top row of the front panel coonetcor block on the board, on the 1st and 2nd pins working from left to right.

The full connector block is wired as follows:

top row: left to right >>
1st& 2nd are Power LED, the 3rd & 4th are the power switch, the 5th is empty.
The bottom row: left to right >>
1st & 2nd are hdd light, the 3rd & 4th are the reset switch, the 5th pin has no connector to the pin
Note: the power led and hdd terminals are to produce a light when the pc is on and busy.If the lights do not show, turn off the pc, turn the connectors round 180deg, reconnect and turn back on again. Job done
