Trying to install an ASUS H81M-C Mainboard with Intel core i5-4460. No way to turn on. Mainboard's Power led is on. Nothing happens at all. All connections are OK. Anyone has an idea? Thanks.


When you say that all connections are ok, you understand that we have to verify as this is the most common problem that occurs when installing motherboards. Obviously you have the large connector from the power supply plugged in since you have the power led on the motherboard. This is good. There is also the ATX 12V CPU 4-pin power connector that must be connected just above and to the left of the CPU. But the most often messed up arrangement are the front panel connections to the motherboard at the lower right corner. This is a 9-pin connector block (actually 10, but top right corner pin not there and bottom right not used).

In the link attached, go to page 26 of the pdf, which is page 1-18 of the manual. At the top of the page is a drawing of the connector block. The green power led takes the first two pins in the top row from the left. The connector plug should have a green and a white wire. The green is the positive and goes on the left pin of the pair.
Right below that is the two pins for the HDD light. This plug should have red and white wires. The red wire is positive and goes to the left pin of the pair. Going back to the top, the power button is the remaining two pins. These wires can vary in color from case to case, but if you don't see a label, just follow them back to the power switch to figure out which pair they are. This connector can be installed either way, there is no fixed polarity. The remaining two pins are for the reset switch, which some cases have and some don't. This connection does not to be used.

If you have everything correct and the unit still won't power up, then you need to verify that the power switch is working. If you have a reset switch, it is easy to test, just switch the reset and power button connectors and press and release the reset button and see if the board powers up. If you don't have a reset switch, remove the connector from the power button pins and carefully short them together for a brief second, which simulates pressing the power button. If it still doesn't power up, then there is something wrong with the motherboard.

One last thing, if the front panel connectors are all installed into one plug (which some manufacturers like DELL does, and you are installing this motherboard into their case, be sure to verify that the wires on the connector goes to the appropriate front panel switches/indicators, as these connector blocks are not fully standardized.

I am going to be fitting a new motherboard, and I am worried about fitting in the power and the wires? Any advice??


There are only a few things that must be carefully observed when changing out motherboards. The first is to ensure that the mounting lugs match up with the mounting holes on the new board. Remove any that don't, otherwise they may short out the motherboard. The new motherboard will come with a book that will show the external connections that must be made from the case to the motherboard. Most cases have labeled plugs that will correspond to the information in the manual. There are two plugs that can be confused - Power Switch and Power LED. Power switch is used to turn on the machine, Power LED goes to the green light on the front of the case. Alos, the HDD LED and Power LED connections are polarized, meaning they have a + and a - wire. The Power LED wires on most cases will be green and white with the green wire being the +. The HDD wires on most cases will be Red and White with the Red being the +. If you get them reversed, it will not harm the machine, but the LED will not work and you will have to turn the plug around. The plugs for the power switch, reset switch and speaker (optional) are not position dependent and cannot be installed backwards. The large power connector to the motherboard is keyed and cannot be installed backward. They can, however be very difficult to connect fully and may required forceful pressure to seat. If this is the case, place something firm, but non-conductive under the edge of the motherboard below the socket to prevent cracking the motherboard. Also, while this may seem silly, some people accidentally do it, so I'll say it here, do NOT have the power supply plugged in when making any connections to the motherboard or when installing or removing any expansion cards.

How do I plug the Power Button wire into the motherboard?


Printed on the MB
HD LED +1 -3
PWR LED +2 -4
RESET 5- 7+ (Why the changed order? & there's no reset button on this computer.)
PWR ON +6 -8

There are nine pins with a little triangle pointing at one and a 2 next to another.
The pins on the MB look like this:

2ndpin
. . . .
. . . . .
1st pin


Found some info on the 506GR. Unfortunately Gateway is keeping the service manual a big secret.

This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .Thank you for using Fixya

Where does the power switch plug into on the motherboard, along with the two other plugs grouped in those wires?


to answer this question, your really need to know the motherboard type and name, as in some rare cases the switch does not plug into the same location as all other motherboards. In most cases though, looking into the computer case, on the bottom right of the motherboard there will be a place about 1/2 inch wide and 1/4 inch tall will 8 to 10 pins. That is where the switch will plug in. Knowing exactly which place to plug it into though, comes back to needing to know the motherboard type and model number. Then on the motherboard manufacturer's website, you should be able to find a user's manual about the motherboard, and in there there will be instructions as to where everything plugs in.

Be careful to note whether you have the power switch connector plugged into the correct place. Sometimes with the two rows of multiple pin connectors it is difficult to tell if you have plugged it into the right place.

make sure you have the main 20pin power connector AND the 4 pin standby connector both plugged into the mb. The 4 pin receptacle on the board is sometimes hard to see because it is close to the CPU.

Unplug all the case connectors going to the mobo and try this. Take a small metal object like a small screwdriver and short out the two "power" pins on the mobo. The motherboard should power up. If it does, try plugging the case wires in again, being careful to plug them in across exactly the pins you used to turn it on by shorting it. If it still doesn't work, it is probably a faulty power switch on the case
