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.

Need pinout for Gateway E4300 motherboard. Front panel pins and audio pins need homes.


The connections are usually printed on the motherboard near the pins.
Power, HD, etc near the front of the case, audio usually near the back low down on the board.

Acer m464 front panel connectors


Sorry in the 1st instance for my lack of specific knowledge when it comes to ACER hardware.

Is the model of your MOTHERBOARD - Acer m464?

If so do you happen to still have a manual that came with the motherboard?

Sometimes you can see the pinout in white writing on the mainboard itself near the connector block... have a close look and see if it is there.

The pin out for the connector block will definately be in the mainboard manual. If you don't have the manual then you'll need to do a little searching for it... I'm sure a .pdf of it will be floating around... i guess start at the ACER site.

On the rack mount chassis, are the plastic chassis connectors grouped (ie. 2 wires into 1 connecter for pwr led, etc) or are they individual single pin connectors?

Either way for each group, one should have a little TRIANGLE on the opposing side to the writing. Conventionally this is your positive (+) pin when looking at the pinout diagram. Ensure you have correct polarity for all ur connections obviously.

See how you go mate.
