How to connect power led, power sw and hdd led on a gateway 3200S mother boad?


go to the motherboard manufacturers website and download the manual. In it there will be a picture of the motherboard connectors you are talking about then just connect them. The power switch connector can go either way as there is no polarity on it.

I need a wiring diagram for a GM5664


Gateway Support > Gateway GM5664 Desktop PC > Downloads and Support Documents,

http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2734

Click on the Support Documents tab
(Drivers, BIOS, Applications, Patches, Support Documents, etc)

Click on the blue - 1015004R - Support Documents

Click on Product Views in the list.
Click on Inside View

Go back to the main page
Click on Components
Go to the heading - Motherboards

4006254R - ECS MCP61PM-GM
(AM2 processor socket, MicroATX form factor motherboard)

Gateway Support is of no further help to us. Product Views for the motherboard does not work.

ECS motherboards use a 10-pin Front Panel header, if memory serves.
One pin is not used. (Not there. Number 10 pin)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/GATEWAY-GM5664-MCP61PM-GM-MOTHERBOARD-4GB-Ram-AMD-Athlon-II-Dual-Core-3-0GHz-/360423046239?pt=Motherboards&hash=item53eae33c5f

On the above link scroll the page down, until you come to the enlarged photo of the motherboard, with - Click an Image to Enlarge - under it.
Click on the photo view all the way to the right, on the top photos.

The view shows the 4 orange SATA headers on the motherboard.
(The whitish 24-pin ATX main power cable connector, is shown at the front, with the blue IDE 40-pin header behind it)

To the left of the orange SATA headers (4) is the Front Panel header.
Black rectangular connector with 2 rows of pins.
One row has 4 pins, the other row has 5 pins.

[ The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header ]

Finding where number 1 pin is, is the problem.
Next to the number 1 pin, and silk-screened on the motherboard, is the number 1.

Looking at the rectangular connector (Front Panel header) you will note one pin is missing. This is where number 10 pin would be.

On the opposite side, and opposite end, is number 1 pin.

The pins are numbered Odd, 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9, on the same side.
(Or row)
The pins are numbered Even, 2, 4, 6, and 8, on the other side.
(Or row)

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
(HDD LED light)
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.

If the Harddrive activity LED light is dim when operating, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is Not Connected. N/C. Reserved for the factory

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.

If the Power On LED light is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Located inside the plastic Power On button assembly. It is an ATX power on switch)

http://www.fixya.com/support/t614458-hp_mcp61pm_hm_motherboard_diagram

As for the orange SATA headers on the motherboard. The SATA harddrive should plug into the lowest number of SATA header.
It may be labled SATA 0, or SATA 1.

The beauty of SATA however, is that you can plug the harddrive into anyone of those SATA headers. BIOS will find the device. (Harddrive)

If you need guidance in connecting any other cables, such as power cables, or optical drives, etc, post back in a Comment.

Have replaced this mobo "3"


Are the leads to the motherboard to the power button loose? In some motherboards there is a separate lead for the light of the button, or the LED. That would be my first guess.

Are you sure it is a good MB? If so double check all connections and try again. If you still have problems post back and let me know if you are getting any beeps at startup.

Gateway computer 310 series wont power up when


It sounds to me like the power switch is plugged into the motherboard incorrectly. I would need to know the type of motherboard you have to get you the proper schematic for hooking up the power switch and reset switch to the board. If you have the manual to the motherboard, there should be a detailed picture showing you how it is to be hooked up. Please let me know the motherboard model for further assistance.

Good Luck,

did you replace the motherboard? if you did with a non gateway replacement there is a good chance you will have to re-wire the buttons.

if not, just look for an oddly shaped "gateway" plug that plugs into the receiving socket on the MB. If you dont own a multi meter and soldering iron now is a good time to invest. also get some wire strippers and cutters.

I can already tell this isn't going to be an easy one. Let's try a few more things.
  1. Unplug the power supply from everything inside the PC. Leave it plugged into the AC cord. On the main motherboard (ATX) power connector, find the pin that goes to the green wire. Use a modified paperclip to short that pin to the next-door pin that should have a black wire. This should cause the power supply to turn on and you should hear its internal fan spin up. If not, this could be a sign the new power supply is also dead.
  2. Plug the power supply into only the motherboard and AC cord. Remove all unnecessary PCI cards and peripherals. Also, if the system has multiple RAM modules, remove all but one. This should leave the power supply, motherboard, video card (if it's not built in), CPU, and RAM as the only items connected. Power up the system and see if anything acts differently.
  3. If there are multiple RAM modules, try every different combination of modules and slots.
  4. I will ask this only because I've done it myself. In the swap between the old and new motherboards, did you verify there were no extra mounting stand-offs that might be touching something on the bottom side of the motherboard? If old and new motherboards are the exact same model, this shouldn't be an issue, but you never know.
  5. Verify there are no jumpers on the new motherboard that might need to be set for the front side bus, memory speed, etc.
  6. Ask your friends, family, and neighbors if anyone has a Pentium 4 in an LGA775 package that you could "borrow" to verify it's not your CPU causing the troubles.
