Question about IBM Aptiva E 2170 PC Desktop

LED Connections on a basic brand Motherboard

I got a temp motherboard to use for now until I get enough money to buy a new gaming motherboard. I got a IBM Aptiva 2178 Motherboard and put in my Desktop tower I'm building. It fits in it and lines up with the screws. I can't find a order to put the LED wires on the power pins on the board. these are 5 seprate wires with H.D.D LED, POWER SW and so on, on each cable. The original LED would of been the actually tower power on button and would of had a all connected LED cable in one plug, and thats with only manufacturer brand motherboards such as IBM, HP, DELL. Witch I just purchased the board only.

With the motherboard in the case and the back of the case away from you the front panel pins are on the front left of the motherboard. They will have simple labels;

PWR power
RST reset
HLED hard dive LED
PLED power LED
You can get it wrong without breaking it so just keep trying until the right buttons and lights work.

I have a broken Dell Precision 470 Workstation. The symptoms are as follows: Won't power up; Green power LED on front panel; Green STR_LED on motherboard; Yellow AUX_PWR LED on motherboard; No beep or VGA...


sounds like a motherboard failure.
Basic troubleshooting, disconnect all external connections except power, see if indications change, if no go remove all expansion cards see if any change, if no go disconnect all drives see if any change. If none, then motherboard.
If at any step you get a change in indications, then see if you can isolate the faulty item

sir on my experience it would be more cheaper if you buy a new unit than have the motherboard repaired because you will have to pay for the parts and pay the technician and wait until it got repaired. and on buying a new one you save time and money and you get to play with your console at once and have a new warranty.. i think that helps ya and please send us your feed back on how this comes out so thank you and fixya.
