Because of the many configuration of motherboard, I can possibly know how to help you with this problem without the keyboard in front of me. The best advice to you is to go back to the manual to find the proper connection of those jumpers.

Problem with panel front conector in Dell Dimension 2200 motherbo

The following information is to assist you in performing the right connections. You should take precautionary measures such as grounding yourself and completely disconnecting the PC form any source of power.

This picture shows the connector for the front panel power button, reset button, and power and hard disk lights: an 8x2 pin connector with 1 pin missing:

The table below lists the pinouts for the connector. The orientation of this table is the same as the picture above, this shows the top part of the connector. All the pins below pin 8 appear to be non-connected.


Each pair of pins labeled Power and Reset goes to the 2 wires for the corresponding button. The hard disk and power LED wires connect to the corresponding LEDs, you need to ensure the proper polarity of the + and - wires for each LED or it will not illuminate.

The above information is for your information only.

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.

How to connect front pannel

How about a picture? Pg. 46 in your manual.
Need manual, download from Intel. (Click on link).

Intel RC440BX Specification
Pg. 46
Basic rules case wiring. The color black is considered ground -. Power wires + can be any other color including stripped wires. (This is standard but case Mfg change to their own specification).

Pin 1 is + power for LED Hard drive green LED, Pin 2 is -/ground for Hard drive LED.
(Pin 3 is + power for LED Hard drive yellow LED, Pin 4 is -/ground for Hard drive LED).(See more options on pg. 47).
Pin 5 is + power for case On/off button, Pin 6 is -/ground On/off button.
Pin 7 is + power for Reset Switch, Pin 8 is -/ground for Reset Switch.
Once positive & negative pins has been located each connector follows in suit.

The Intel RC440BX front case connector is in an odd location.
The user will find it hard to connect front case LED connectors while the board in installed into the case.

Good Luck!
