I should tell you on the motherboard which one's go to where.
They are usually all together in a 2 rows of small pins, and usually along the bottom edge of the board.
If not find the make and model number of the motherboard (usually printed on it) and search the net for the manual that goes with it.

You need to check your motherboard. Look for a manufacturer name and a serial number. Google it and look for manual. There will be a bunch of pins on the motherboard in a cluster and these connectors fit onto those. The motherboard manual will tell you exactly where. The writing on the motherboard is usually far too small to say which pin goes where. The fan will either be a case fan or a cpu fan. There will be a set of 3 pins in a line on the motherboard and labelled. If it is a case fan dont put it on the cpu fan connector. You will have to peer to find it. The manual will help considerably with the location, but these are usually readable on the motherboard unlike the hddled and powerled etc.

I dont no to connect the front wires in mother board


The front wires are usually for power, hdd led. power button and reset button and sometimes extra usb ports and audio ports. All motherboards have a small section that has 8 to 10 grouped pins protruding that you can attach these wires to. The motherboard will diagrahm where the pins hsould go. For example the light for the hard drive wires are probably labeled "HDDLED" and there is two of them. One positive charge and and ground. On the motherboard, in the grouped pins there is a small label that goes:

''___'
'_____'
HDDLED
PWLED

It may look like this but in a different arrangement. What does this mean? Connect HDDLED to the top two pins. Doesn't matter which way the positive and ground go. And connect the power led PWLED to the bottom pins. Follow this for all the other labels.

Hope this helped.

Replacing a ceiling fan pull chain light switch.


that is strange
normally a 3 wire switch could only be able to control 2 things + off. black would be common, red would be one fan speed or set of lights and blue would be the other fan speed or set of lights.
if it is a replacement, couldn't you just hook it up like the switch you are removing?

most likely the black wires are grounds for everything and white would be power. hook it up however you like. white power would hook up to the black wire on the switch and then the blue to one light and red to the other set of lights white wires.
good luck!

Wiring Bathroom light/vent/heater switch with 3 separate controls


Wiring a bathroom combination vent, heater, light 3 way switch means more wires. In brief, you need to run two cables - one a two wire and one a three wire from the switch to the fan.

Incoming power will have white black and ground.

The two wire cable for the switch to the fan will have wht, blk, and ground.

The three wire will have red, blk, wht, and grnd.

The switch will likely have 2 blacks and a red coming from it, with two blacks and a red on one side, and a single black on the other.

The fan should have a red, blue, green, black, and white.

On the fan end: Group all green/copper grounds together and use a wire nut to fasten them together. Tape the nut to the wires.
There will be five white wires coming through. For ease of handling, using wire nuts, connect two on one nut and three on the other.
connect the blue to a blck. Connect one red to one black, and the other red to the other black.

The switch will have one red going into the 3 wire cable, a black going to the 3 wire cable, and a black form incoming power to the side opposite the 3 wires, and a blck going to the two wire cable.

There. Confused?

Installed an Upgrated Mother Brd,in my Hp Desktop Tower,but the power Switch receptacle in the New Mother Brd has 16 pns


You need to track the wires from the case front panel to thier locations: one will be your power switch, one your reset, one hard drive activity light, and one your power light. You want to note and label which light or switch they go to then go to the new motherboards manual and plan which wires need to go where.
the front panel switches : reset and power switch- these are momentary switches so it doesnt matter which way they go.
hard drive activity and power light- these should have a colored wire and a black or white. the colored wire will be your + side.

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.

Motherboard pin config


All motherboards have a print beside the pins, Speaker= "speak", "pwr s" =powerswitch, "HDDled" red light on front, rst = reset switch [not allways used] "pwr led" Green led, the case wires are usualy marked on the plug ends with the same , "hdd" "reset" and so on. The power switch will work both way's around however the led lights wont. You will not hurt anything if they are the wrong way around, they just wont work so if you dont get lights just reverse the polarity. If by chance the case wires do not have labels the just trace them to the case front panel and plug them into the corresponding board pins. Regards mistyman
