If you are using the generic or compatible casing it is written in the connectors of the casing (power sw, reset sw, h.d.d led etc.) and in the motherboard you can see also the markings or labels. it depends on the motherboard brand and design just follow the manual.

Where do I plug in the power sw and power led wire on the eMachines T5274 computer? Thanks


When looking at the motherboard with the back of the computer to your left, there should be a row of pins on the lower right corner of the motheboard (or close to the corner). These pins are normally marked as something like PLED (for the power LED), PWR SW for power switch, RST for reset, IDE LED for the hard drive light, etc.
The power switch is normally along the bottom row and the power LED is on the top. But--to find where the power switch goes, take a small screwdriver and short two of the pins to see if the computer turns on. If it does, you've found the power switch. When the computer is running, put the power LED plug across two pins to see if the power light lights. If it doesn't, try two more until you find it.

Accidently un-setaed three jump switches --Power EW,Power LED, HD


If your talking about the pins on the mother board for the on power switch, HDD LED, reset, power led, and system speaker you would need to note the make and model of *********** board. If you look very closely you should see little letters for example , PWS, HDD,RST,PCS,PLED, These mach up to the pins on the motherboard. also most commonly the PC speaker has an open pin so it will be 3 pins long and not just 2. To find the make and model of a motherboard you can find a name and a group of numbers something like " Intel A33Y97 " and then google for more information if needed.

There are may motherboards, but most have writing on them as to what is suppose to plug where. For example, for the power switch, the lettering might be "Pwr" or "Power" or "Pwr sw". The pins are usually together and should fit the plug on the end of the wire.

TRYING TO HOOK UP MU POWER BUTTON NEED TO KNOW


Hi there
The front panel connectors are mainly,
  • harddisk activity connector
  • power switch connector
  • reset switch connector
  • power LED connector
  • speakers connector
  • USB connector
Harddisk activity connector
This normally comes red in colour and is labeled as HDD-LED
Power switch connector
This comes green in colour and is labeled as POWER-SW
Reset switch connector
This usually comes grey in colour and is labeled as RST-SW
Power LED connector
This is usually green in colour and is labled as PWR-LED
Speakers connector
This speaker will give different beep sounds during boot to tell the user if there is any errors. It occupies 4 pins, however only 2 is important for the function. Be sure to connect the red coloured cable to the positive polarity and the black to the negative.
