Question about MSI KT3 Ultra2-R Motherboard

Hooking up power on a motherboard

Hey, can someone help me out? I've got a motherboard, I guess it's not quite wired up for power, trying to find a print someplace to show me where the connectors go, or if I've got other troubles.

The chat widget won't let me send this with the proper board type. It's not a 2R but a 2 CE for whatever difference it will make.

    That helps, thanks- but one specific part of the question is the location for the pins for the front panel start switch. The connector has four holes in a row. in either of two sizes as I'm sure you know about.

  • fr Juniper Jan 27, 2008

    The problem here is that there are pictures available for identifying the connectors, but what if one does no know where on the board to find this or that connection? I was wrong before: The four-pin cable is not from the start switch but the back of the CD-R deck (LG). I do have the 20-pin connector in place, and the start, and each of the drives is hooked. I still have the four-pin aux connector and a six-pinner w/ three wires and three jumpers I'm wondering about. When I powered up in this config earlier I was getting three beeps every 2-3 seconds. The ps and cpu fans spin, but not a flicker on the monitor,, just darkness and beeps. This boy's stumped.

    It seems we're making some progress then. While it would not re-seat to make a difference the start switch did click right off when I only gave it a couple of beeps' time from
    "start," so it might seem that the OS was trying to boot despite the beeps & darkness. Hate buying parts, but better a vid than the motherboard! Thanks- I'll see what I can do with it!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. You say your case connector has 4 holes. Use a pin and push the metail at the back of the connector & slide it out of it's hole. Insert it next to the other wire in the connector hole so they are next to each other. You can now connect it to the motherboard.hooking up power on a motherboard - 4f0a03f.jpg

You cannot make a mistake with the power
there are 2 power connectors on the mother board
same as is on the power supply.
the jacks on the board are plastic and usually white/clear

see this link the power connectors are on the right

    as for the power switch if you have the cd it has a picture to show you the proper connections.
    else.
    on the board that bunch of pins sticking up has small labels printed on the board one of them says pwr that pin and the one across or next to it completes the power on. just use a small screwdriver for a microsec to short it and the unit powers on.
    now find the wire from your case that has power. one set may be the led power on indicator just do the same place it on the same 2 pins and power on for a sec.

    The beeps are complaining about the video card not firing up.
    Re-seat the video card and try power again.

Is that a question or a statement? If it is a question, you need to include the device your needing the power wiring for, I'm guessing it is for the E-Machine, and if it is, the power is the same as any motherboard and power supply, it has a unique connector and it makes the power supply connector only able to be plugged into the only jack it will fit.

HOW DO I INSTALL MOTHERBOARD


You should really have someone show you how to do this as it is very technical and doing it incorrectly could result in catastrophic system failure. However, it can be done quite easily once you've seen it done a couple times. It is also difficult to give general instructions because each board is different in some respects.

You've either got a bad motherboard or a bad processor (I'd lean to the motherboard being bad). I would honestly take this into a computer repair shop and have them check both.

Hey Ya'll i have your motherboard K7S5A an i can get it to start up however when it loads it tells me hdd error hdd slave error but im not sure i have the wires for the hdd and power wires in the right...


Either the wires are not properly hooked up but more likely would be that you have the jumpers on the back of the hdd's improperly set. Hope this helps.

Wiring hookup instructions for ecs 945 gct -m mATX motherboard


Hi joe, if you're question refers to ECS 945GCT-M motherboard, than goto page 12 in the manual. You'll see this
77d37bb.jpg Please read all of pg.12.
It's my guess you bought this board from powerspec. For now forget the two red wires & just hook up the case's wires for all LED's & on/off. Everything should be just fine.

Good Luck!

Powering up issue


Only guess I have is unplug the 4 pin connector from the MB if you used it, I had that problem with an Abit nf7-s, no joy until I found out the extra 4 from a 24 pin is NOT what hooks to the 12V boost connector on the MB when you only have a 20 pin main hook-up.
Sorry if this doesn't help.
