Motherboard


The front of your computer is the Front Panel

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires from the Front Panel go to; is the Front Panel header.

What you are asking for is a Front Panel header pinout.

I do not have the exact Front Panel header pinout, for your motherboard.
Tell you what I do have though..........

Looking at the Front Panel header on the Ebay link, for the Winfast 760m02-GX-6LRS; the Front Panel header looks to be below the CMOS battery, and close to the Bottom edge of the motherboard.

(Motherboard installed in computer case)

Black rectangular strip of plastic, with contact pins sticking up.
Also looks to be a GENERAL set-up for all Winfast motherboards.
(COULD be wrong here)

This is what I am referencing off of,

http://www.devhardware.com/c/a/Motherboards/Foxconn-Winfast-NF4SK8AA8EKRS-Motherboard-Review/3/

Go to the third photo down. Here you see the Front Panel wires, connected to the Front Panel header; on the motherboard.
(Below round CMOS battery)

Note that the contact pin on the Bottom row, and all the way to the Right; is NOT being used.
(I'm using a 26 inch HDTV as my primary monitor, so it may be easier for me to see)

Now look at this Front Panel header pinout, for another Winfast motherboard,

http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f15/winfast-mobo-front-panel-connection-558456.html

(Scroll down a little)

PWRLED is for the Power On LED (Light)
PWRSW stands for Power On switch
HD-LED stands for the HarDDrive activity LED (Light)
RESET stands for a Reset switch, IF USED.

Note where it has a Positive ( + ) sign, next to the pin for the PWRLED.
This is the pin the + wire from the Power On LED connects to.
It is the SAME for every LED that connects to the Front Panel header.

Let's number the contact pins, to make the explanation easier;
Starting at the Left side, Top row; going towards the Right;
Pins 2, 4, 6 and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

Starting on the Left side, Bottom row; going towards the Right;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

Pin 2 is for the Positive wire.
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire
If the LED's are dim, (PWRLED, and HDD LED), OR; the LED's do not light up, switch the wires around.

(Pin 9 is N/C.........Not Connected. This is probably a 5 Volt test point, that was used by the factory)

There is a method you can use though, and find out what the individual contact pins are, in the Front Panel header;

Use an LED with two wires

Computer (Power Supply) plugged into power, go along the top row, and touch two pins at a time, with the two wires of the LED.

Example; Pins 2 and 4, as shown in the pinout.
Did the Power Supply come on?
No?

Go to the next two pins. Try again.
When the Power Supply comes on, you naturally know that is the two contact pins; for the Power On switch.
DO NOT touch them again. In fact connect the Power On switch wires.

Power Supply on, computer running;
Now go back along again;
1) LED light blinks?
You have the HarDDrive activity LED, contact pins.
2) LED light stays on?
You have the Power On LED, contact pins.
3) Computer restarts?
Those are the Reset switch, contact pins.

4) Nothing happens?
May be contact pins for a speaker, or contact pins that are not used.
(Speaker is for hearing BIOS Beep Codes.
You have a Piezo buzzer, to the Left of the CMOS battery; for that)

Post back in a Comment, as to the results.

If possible, I would like to ask upon you; to post the Front Panel header pinout; when you find what it is.

That way when a person in the future also has this same problem; the solution will be posted on the internet, for them to find.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wires go to, is the Front Panel header.
You need a Front Panel header pinout.

When I refer to a page in the manual, it will be for the Adobe Reader page number box, at the top.
Go to Page 1-7
1.5.3 Motherboard layout

Number 12 shows us the Front Panel header.
Motherboard mounted in computer case, the Front Panel header is the 3rd header from the Left; on the bottom of the motherboard.
(System panel connector (10-1 pin F_PANEL)

Go to Page 1-25
System panel connector (10-1 pin F_PANEL)

There are two rows of pins.
4 pins across the Top row; 5 pins across the Bottom row.
Not numbered, so I will;

Starting on the LEFT side, going across to the Right; Top row,
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10

Starting on the Left side, going across to the Right; Bottom row,
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED. (Light Emitting Diode)
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

C) There is NO Pin 10.

D) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED.
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the Harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

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

F) Pin 9 is N/C.
Not Connected.
Probably a 5 Volt (DC) point for the factory to test with.
(So it's Reserved for the factory)

Here is an example of an ATX power on switch, that is used in MANY desktop computers,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

Remember; the Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.
This means the contact period you make across those two pins, shouldn't be more than 2 seconds.

Next time you do not know the Front Panel header pinout, of a motherboard;
Use an LED light with two wires.

Touch two pins at a time, going along the FP header.

Computer turns on? You have the Power On switch pins. Now you can continue on.

LED light stays on? You have the Power On LED pins.
LED light blinks? You have the HarDDrive activity LED pins.
Computer restarts? You have the Reset switch pins.

Power On LED winks at you seductively?

Put that left-handed cigarette down, and go get sum fresh air.

Front panel connections


I don't find the Front Panel header pinout online, nor do I have an MSI MS-5191 in the shop.

I would suggest using one the LED lights with two wires.
(3-wire is a dual color LED)

There are two rows of pins. Usually the Power On switch, Power On LED, and Speaker; are on the same row.
HarDDrive activity LED, and Reset Switch are on the opposite row.

Speaker has 4-pins designated for it. All the others use 2-pins.
(Unless the PWR ON LED is a dual color jobbie)

Touch two pins next to each other, in the same row; with the 2-wire LED.
Start with finding the Power On switch first.

Usually the top row 1st two pins are Power On LED (Light)
Next in line are the 2 pins for the Power On switch.
Bottom row 1st two pins are usually HarDDrive activity LED (light)
Next 2-pins are usually Reset switch.

May not apply to a motherboard old enough to use a Socket 7 processor socket.
There may be 18 to 20-pins.
Bear in mind that many are not used, and probably 4 are for an internal speaker, for hearing BIOS Beep Codes.
May be two separate Front Panel headers.

Once you find the two contact pins in the Front Panel header, for the Power On switch; I would put the Power On switch wires on.
The small pin connector on the wire/s, will keep you from accidentally touching these two pins again, when the computer is on.

Now you have the two pins for the Power On switch, and the computer is running; then keep touching 2-pins at a time with the LED. (Light Emitting Diode)

LED stays on? You have the Power On LED (Light) pins.
LED blinks? HarDDrive activity LED (light) pins.
Computer restarts? Reset switch pins.

Look for abbreviations near the pins in the Front panel header.

PWR, Pwr, Pwr On, Sw, and SW; are just some of the abbreviations for the Power On switch.

HDD LED, and HDD are two for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light)
(If it states HDD SW it is the Power On switch. Weird old way of marking)

RST, Reset, and RSW, are for the Reset Switch.
(Reset Button)

If you see 4 pins marked with a bracket ( [ -> Turn so it's horizontal), these are for the internal speaker.

Type MSI front panel connector in your search bar, and look at -> images. See if you can find an image of your MSI Front Panel header pinout.

You can bet MSI carried out that Front Panel header pinout, on other MSI motherboards, besides the MS-5191.

The MSI MS-5191 may have been a motherboard made by MSI, especially for a pre-built computer manufacturer, and not listed on their website as an OEM motherboard.
(Original Equipment Manufacturer)

Won't have the Front Panel header pinout, listed on MSI's support website. (Doesn't)
But you can bet there IS an OEM motherboard made by MSI, that the Front Panel header DOES match.

May be different expansion slots, or motherboard chipset, or whatever; but the same Front Panel header pinout.

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires connect to, is the Front Panel header.
(Power On switch, Power On LED, HarDDrive activity LED, etc)

The Front Panel header is Black, rectangular in shape, and is situated in a vertical position; located in the Bottom Right corner of the motherboard. (Next to the mounting hole)

It is a standard 9-pin HP Front Panel header,

http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware/Getting-a-new-case-i-need-Front-Panel-pinout/td-p/842897

Scroll down to the 9-pin Front Panel header photo, and pinout.

The 4-pin side is the EVEN side. Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10.
The 5-pin side is the ODD side. Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light Emitting Diode, so it is redundant to call it a light)

Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
IF the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, (IN use), switch the wires around.

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

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. Reserved for factory use, and it is +5 Volts.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

Scroll the HP Support Motherboard Specification page down. Click on the + sign next to Motherboard Layout.

Left to Right on bottom edge of motherboard, Internal Connectors;

AUDIO_1 is for the audio ports on the Front Panel.
ATX_IN is where the small audio cable from the optical drive plugs in.
(CD/DVD drive)
IF TWO optical drives are used; the Main, or Primary optical drive, is connected with the small audio cable. NOT the secondary optical drive.

HD_AUDIO also connects to audio ports in the Front Panel.
May be mistaken, but don't believe SPDIF_OUT header is used.
1394A1 header is for the Firewire ports in the Front Panel (1394a)
USB 2 and USB 4 headers are for the Front Panel USB ports.
USB 1 and USB 3 should be for a Card Reader.

Need where the power cables go, and what they look like? Just post back in a Comment.

I have purchased a Thermaltake V3 black case and am trying to install my M2N68-LA motherboard. The motherboard has a combined 9 pin header for power switch, power l.e.d. and hdd l.e.d. which was one plug...


1) The 9-pin header you are referring to, is the Front Panel header.

(Processor to the top, Ram Memory slots to the right, the Front Panel header is at the bottom right corner on the motherboard)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00906129&lc=en&cc=de&dlc=&product=3397528

The plastic piece on the front of your computer is the Front Panel.
(Sometimes referred to as a Bezel)

Make a drawing, and notes as to where the individual wires go from that Front Panel header plug, (One-piece plug), to the Front Panel.

Follow the wires from the plug to the Front Panel.

Mark down where Each wire goes.

You may have to take components off of the Front Panel, in order to see exactly where Each wire goes.

For example:
You may have to remove the Power On button/switch assembly from the Front Panel.

It may have the Power On LED light, Power On button, (Switch), and perhaps the HarDDrive LED activity light, in this assembly.

The wires are color coded.

Generally, but not always, when two wires are used in conjunction with each other, (Example, Power On switch, or Power On LED light), the wires will be twisted together.

One wires insulation may be of a solid color, and the other wire may be white, with a stripe in the color of the solid wire.

Example: Wire with Red color, and wire twisted with it may be White, with a Red stripe.

See if these two wires go to the Power On switch.
End of example.

Follow each twisted pair of wires back down to the Front Panel header plug.
(One-piece plug)

See which socket holes the individual wires go to.
Mark it down in your drawing, and notes.

Mark where the individual socket holes plug onto each pin, in that Front Panel header. (9-pin header)

When you are finished, you will have a pinout for the Front Panel header on the Asus M2N68-LA motherboard, and will know where the individual wires go from your ThermalTake V3 computer case.

For the LED lights there is a Positive pin, ( + ), and a Ground pin. (Power On LED, and Harddrive activity LED, for example)

(Ground. Also referred to as the Negative pin. ( - )
This is DC Voltage)

If you have the polarity backwards, (Positive wire of the LED light is going to the Ground pin, Ground wire of the LED light is going to the Positive pin), the LED light will be dim.

(When operating)
Switch the wires around.

If you have questions, or need clarification of what I have stated above, simply state in a Comment.
