Hi, on the edge of your mother board closest to the front of the computer, you will find a double row of pins. Use a torch and if needed a magnifying glass and study these, you will find they are labeled the same as your cables from the case.
In some cases the plugs are set as a 3 space plug, if you find one of these that wont fit. just split it. If you plug the LED wire back to front, don't panic it won't hurt they just wont work. The power and reset are not pole sensetive.
Goodluck mistyman

I want to know that how can I assemble my wires in GIGABYTE GA-8I945GZME-RH

Assemble wire, you must mean install the power supply cords.

1. Find the long cord called "24 Pin", the motherboards usually have that plug on the right hand side, above the SATA connectors
2. Most motherboards need a 4 or 8 pin plug in order to power the CPU, most modern power supplys have adequate connectors, should be somewhere on the rails.
3. Your case has specific wires needed to be plugged in, usually on the bottom. Follow your case instructions for this.

Why is the green led blinking on my M3N72-D motherboard

The flickering green LED on the motherboard is illuminated by the standby power supply, a small completely independent, always on, 5 volt power supply labeled 5VSB usually, output is on the violet wire.

Here's some more detailed instructions about how to check a PSU.

Try to borrow a known good PSU of around 550 - 600 watts. That will power just about any system with a single GPU. If you cannot do that, use a DMM to measure the voltages. Measure between the colored wires and either chassis ground or the black wires. Yellow wires should be 12 volts. Red wires: +5 volts, orange wires: +3.3 volts, blue wire : -12 volts, violet wire: 5 volts always on. Tolerances are +/- 5% except for the -12 volts which is +/- 10%.

The gray wire is really important. It should go from 0 to +5 volts when you turn the PSU on with the case switch. CPU needs this signal to boot.

My old power supply had 4 wires going to the front panel on\off switch. The Dynex power supply does not support the switch. what do I use to turn the unit on or off. Will the unit function with out the...

Normally the front panel on/off power button and the front panel reset button plug into connector pins on your motherboard.

If you can find a User Manual for your motherboard it will show you exactly where the switch leads plug in on the motherboard. The motherboard's manufacturer and model number will be printed on the board somewhere.

Good luck.

Nothing happens when I press power button

1) Make sure THE receptacle in the surge protector that the computer is plugged into, has power. Plug an electrical device such as a table lamp for example, into THAT receptacle. I have had a few surge protectors where just THAT receptacle was bad.

2) Receptacle checks out, I suggest you see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.
(The Power On switch is located in the plastic Power On button.
This is an example of a generic ATX power on switch,

The procedure involves bypassing the Power On switch.
If the Power Supply comes on you have a bad Power On switch.
If the Power Supply does Not come on, you have a bad Power Supply.

The procedure does not involve the wires of the Power On switch, nor the switch itself.
The procedure involves using a jumper on the ATX main power cable's connector.
Jumping from the Soft Power On wire (Green wire) to ANY Ground wire.
(ANY Black wire is a Ground wire)

The Acer Aspire T180 uses a 24-pin ATX main power cable.
The 24-pin ATX main power cable plugs into the motherboard, in-between the Ram Memory slots, (Slot 4), and the outside edge of the motherboard.

This shows you a typical 24-pin ATX main power cable, it's connector, and the matching female connector on the motherboard,

This is to show you the motherboard, (Not advertising for the website, nor the seller),

Scroll to the bottom of the page, and then click on -
Click to view supersized image

When you open your computer case, (Computer unplugged from power), you will see various cables, and hardware components, plugged into the motherboard.

Viewing the photo in the link above, look to the right of the Orange Ram Memory slot.
You will see the blue connector.

The opaque whitish connector to the right of it, and next to the outside edge of the motherboard, is where the 24-pin ATX main power cable plugs into.

Looking back at the link that shows the 24-pin ATX main power cable (Playtool link), look at the photo to the far right.
This is what you will see when you open your computer case.

View the Green wire.
Now view the Black wires.

The jumper wire you will fashion, will go down into the socket hole with the Green wire, and ANY Black wire.

One end of the jumper wire, will go down into the socket hole with the Green wire.
The other end of the jumper wire will go down into a socket hole with ANY Black wire.

The jumper wire will go down into the socket hole, Right next to the wire that is already in the socket hole.

(The Back of the connector is where the wires go in. The Front of the connector plugs into the motherboard.
The jumper wire goes into the Back of the connector, down into the socket holes, and right next to the existing wire that is already in the socket hole)

At the end of the power wires going down into the socket holes, is a metal terminal.
The metal terminal is pretty far down into the socket hole.
(Approximately 1/2 inch)
You need to ensure that the ends of the jumper wire Touch the metal terminals.

The jumper wire is fashioned from a paper clip.
The paper clip is first straightened out, then bent into a U-shape.
Black plastic electrical tape is wrapped around the bend of the U-shape.
This taped area is where you hold onto the jumper wire.

The voltage for the Green (Soft Power On) wire is 5 Volts DC.
Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.
Low, low voltage in case you are concerned of being shocked.

However, you may wish to wear a glove on the hand that holds the jumper wire.
There may be a small spark.

Suggest you lay the computer on it's side, computer case open, opening of the computer case up.
(Won't hurt the computer to operate laying on it's side)

Place the ends of the jumper wire into the socket holes.
The contact is no more than 2 seconds.

Power Supply comes on, you have a bad Power On switch.
Power Supply does not come on, you have a bad Power Supply.

The Power Supply is an ATX.
(ATX form factor.
The ATX form factor for a Power Supply is approximately 6 inches Wide, {Width},6 inches Long, {Length},and 3-1/2 inches Tall {Height)

It's a 250 Watt unit.

Unable to find the power switch to connect to

If you no longer have the manual for you're Intel D815EEA motherboard, open the link provided and download it;
You will also need Adobe reader installed to view the manual;
Read over pages 65 to 68.
Once completed turn to page 68 Figure 23. Front Panel connectors. Figure 23 shows two views.
View - (left figure), shows J9C1 as you look down at the front panel pins. The right figure will not be needed. Connect each jumper or each pair as shown.
Wire colors are important and do vary from case to case. The common color of each pair will most likely be used for negative. Wire colors such as blue, light blue, green, light green, red and light red are commonly used as positive.
Pin 1 will be positive and pin 3 will be negative. This is letter - C. Hard drive activity LED.
Pin 2 is positive and pin 4 is negative. Case power LED, and so forth.
As mentioned on page 65, the case front panel pins use 5 volts DC. If you make a mistake and place a jumper backwards (No LED light), just power off the switch on the back of the power supply and correct the jumper by turning it 180 deg. If you’re case’s LEDs do not light up than you will need to connect letter G and letter H. The electronic circuits under the motherboard should supply all 16 motherboard pins with the 5 volt DC and ground needed.

How to set up my 850w icute modular vga psu,because it sounds loud and there is alot of heat

As long as you have replaced all connections that were there previously (make sure you have connected the main power supply, and the supplementary one on the motherboard. Make sure your hard drive(s)/CD drive(s) are connected. And if your graphics card requires a pci-e connecter, do that as well.) That is all the setup that is needed. As the power supplies go up in power, there will inevidably be more noise/heat. But it shouldnt be obnoxiously loud or hot. If the temp of the air blowing from the back of the psu is HOT thats a bad sign, especially if this is a new unit. Make sure that your intake fan is facing the open side in your case and not blocked at the top/bottom of the case. If it is terribly loud and/or hot, i would send it back for a replacement.

Connecting front panel wiring to INTEL 845GRG Motherboard

Hello davideiker1, the Intel D845GRG MB manual is shared with another Intel board. (D845GBV MB). Go to this Intel site & download the D845GRG manual; You'll need Adobe reader to view the manual. Download Adobe from this link;
See page 9 for motherboard layout.
The front panel connectors are shown on page 68, see item C.
On page 69 is, Table 31 shows the pin assignments for the front panel header. Front Panel Header (J9G1).
Pin 1 is power for the hard disk drive led, pin-3 is negative for the hard disk drive. Wire colors coming from the case are important. Look at all of the front case wires. The common color for each 2-pin connector will be ground. In most cases the ground wire is white, except for the internal speaker. Ground for the speaker is normally black. (This motherboards speaker is built into the MB, no hook up is needed).
Pin number 2 is positive for the case power led which lights up as green. Pin 4 is negative for the power led.
The reset switch is a bit different. Pin 5 is negative & pin 9 is positive, however if your case uses a two pin connector than connect pin 7 as ground & pin 9 for positive. The On/Off switch, pin 6 is positive & pin 8 is negative.
If this manual is not what you see on the MB, please advise.

Good luck davideiker1!

Gigabyte GA-8INXP Motherboard Problem- front connector pins

If the wires from the reset switch is white/blue the blue wire is positive, Hdd red/white red is positive power Green/white Green is positive etc. The wires on the speaker connector will be red/black/black/white - red is positive. The colored wire is always positive. On all GA mb's the positive connection is always towards the back of the MB and are marked with a + on the base of the pin as you can see on the photo. Hope this help.
