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

I need a wire diagram for a Gateway Mother board MCP61PM-GM


Carole,

The front of the 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.

Would this be what you require, or more extensive?

From a fellow FixYa expert,

http://www.fixya.com/support/t614458-hp_mcp61pm_hm_motherboard_diagram


I know it states MCP61PM-HM
The 10-pin ( actually) Front Panel header, is the same across the board, for ECS motherboards.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

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


This motherboard Adam?

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c00906137

Can't help you.









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!)

Front panel connection to mother board Power switch pin


Hi careyfraser,

pcsyke_140.jpg


1. There are 8 wires from the front panel's casing, excluding USB connectors and front audio cable.

2. Just plug the front panel switch headers to the F_Panel main board connectors. 1 & 2 are positive, if the led do not light change polarity but Im sure it will.

Note:The mainboard provides a front panel connector for electrical connection to the front panel switches and LEDs. JFP1 is compliant with Intel® Front Panel I/O Connectivity Design Guide.


Hopefully this information helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi i just bought a m\b MCP61PM-AM,did not come


FIXYA has several "solutions" for your motherboard, at: http://www.fixya.com/tags/mcp61pm_am

Take a close look at the motherboard; each pair of pins at the "far-end" (furthest away from the keyboard/mouse connectors) should be labelled, e.g., 'PWR/power', 'HD LED', 'Power LED', 'RST/reset'.

Because there are so many different case and motherboard combinations sometimes it can be difficult following the instructions for connecting the front panel, USB header and audio header.

Below is a few generic guide that should stop some of the confusion with the labels on the wires.

Where to hookup front panel (PIII-3754LMR - AMPTRON)


Front Panel Connector The front panel header is where the connectors of hard disk drive activity lights, case speaker, reset button, power on/off button, computer power on light, and key lock, are connected to make them function smoothly. In the past days, users always have difficulty connecting the front panel due to a lack of standard location on the motherboard. Today, AOpen integrated all these disorder but essential front panel connectors into one 20-pin connector for easy usage. Connecting the front panel would no longer be the headache of installing motherboard anymore. Below is a view of this user-friendly front panel connector of AOpen motherboard.
