How to connect reset power and leds

Okay, look at your motherboard from this orientation so we're both looking at the same thing in the same way.


On the bottom of the motherboard, just above and to the right of the notation "MADE IN CHINA", is a group of pins with the notation above that reads "PANEL 1". That's where your Power switch, Reset Switch and LED lines will plug into.
Look at the eight pins in the nine pin panel that form a box of two rows of four pins each. Those are the actual pins you'll be using. Ignore the one on the bottom row that's off by itself. Shuttle does, so we should as well.
Now, to the right and down of PANEL 1 is a little drawing on the motherboard of PANEL 1 with little lines and numbers and such. This little drawing shows you which pins are used for which lines. It looks kind of like this...
2 4 6 8
'MSG ' PWR '
'LED ' BTN '
'HDD ' RST '
'LED ' '
1 3 5 7
Lastly, as PANEL 1 has a little "+" right next to Pin #2, and we don't have a manual handy because Shuttle seems to have all the information available on the web except a copy of the bloody manual, we're going to take an educated guess that for each two-pin part of the box, when plugging in the individual plugs, make sure the black wire is the one on the right, and the colored ones will be on the left.
So, plug the Power button into the upper-right two pins, black wire on the right, Reset on the lower-right, HDD LED on the lower-left and the Power LED on the upper-left. (I'm guessing that's what "MSG LED" means. There are no "Power LED" pins anywhere that I could find.
This should take you only a couple of minutes, so post back if you have any difficulty. If you need a hi-res image of this motherboard, go to the below link.

I need to figure out where to plug in the Power LED and the power SW wires to the mother board

The link for the motherboard manual can be found here, on which there will be a pinout diagram of the Fpanel pin headers

USUALLY the wires are marked as:
Power switch: PW
Power led = Pled

On the motherboard you will see (bottom right corner I think), a group of about 8 pins in a block, this is the Fpanel pinset. on the motherboard next to each pin SHOULD show the wire connections as described above, but consult the manual to be sure.. this is a VERY old mobo

I put a motherboard in my pc and i dont know where 2 put POWER SW,RESET SW,HDD LED,POWER LED....please help

ok man on this picture in the bottom of the pic there will be a sort of black rectangle with nine pins, 5 on bottom, four on top. This is where all your POWER SW,RESET SW,HDD LED,POWER LED will be plugged in. I could not find instructions for your board but for mine it is

Looking at the pins from the side where there are 5 pins on the bottom and 4 on top. The top two sould be the power led the two next to that should be the power switch, the bottom two to the left should be the hard drive led and the two next to that should be reset.

This is not the guaranteed position seeing as we have two completely different models.

Hope this helps.

Connecting hdd led lead and power led lead,where do they go ?

Hi, There are 3 versions of this motherboard; 1.0, 2.0 & 3.3, but the layout is identical. The general layout is shown in pins.jpg. For the power led, the white wire goes to the (-) terminal either pin 2 or 3, both are MPD- while the green goes to the ( ) or pin 1 (MPD ) as shown in powerled.jpg HDDpins.jpg shows the connection of HDD led, the white goes to pin 3 or HD- while the red goes to pin 1 or the HDD . I cropped these images from the manual which is also available at the gigabyte website. Hope this gives you some ideas and workout of you. Good luck and pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
