Diagram for the pins of the USB ports on the P5N7A-VM motherboard?
Doesn't show it in the Motherboard Manual?
I'd like you to download the Motherboard manual from Asus Support.
1.Your Motherboard Manual may not be as clear as the PDF file Motherboard Manual, you can download from Asus Support.
Perhaps the type, and print are smudged.
2.With a PDF file you can enlarge the motherboard schematic. Enlarge the USB headers for the motherboard, the size of this page if you like!
3.Allows both of us to 'Be on the same page', so I can show you where the USB port pins connect to on the USB header. (On the motherboard)
Here is Asus Support, and the Downloads page,
