You're trying to use a proprietary part on a different computer.

The plug connector you have was made for a 8(?) contact pin plug connector. (Usually 1 pin is missing, for a 'Key' pin)

The Front Panel header on the mobo you're trying to use it on, has a 10-pin Front Panel header. (Again, 1 pin missing for a Key pin)

You need to separate those individual connectors.
Yeah, I know.

This involves trying to slice/saw them out, and there's Nothing dangerous about that! (Sarcasm)

Moving on............

The connectors in that female plug are female metal terminal connectors. Individual connectors. Example,

http://www.mcmelectronics.com/product/28-9420&utm_medium=Affiliate&ref=cj&utm_campaign=CommissionJunction&utm_source=CommissionJunction

The opening in the front, of course goes over the contact pin, in the Front Panel header on the motherboard.
The back of the connector, shown at the top; is crimped around the insulation of the wire.

The barrel shaped connector slides down into the individual socket hole, in the plug connector.

Looking at the Molex connector, observe the two 'Tangs' that stick out on either side. -> /

When the Molex connector is inserted into the plug connector's socket hole, the Tangs press against the sides of the connector.
When the Molex connector is at the correct depth, in the plug connector socket hole, the Tangs 'pop' out.

They pop out in small depressions, in the sides of the socket hole.
See how they angle towards the back?

If you slide the correct diameter of needle, down in the Front of the plug connector, (And in socket hole), you can depress one tang at a time.

Slides into the socket hole, right next to the Molex connector, and pushes down on the Tang.

Once depressed by the needle, lift up on THAT side a little.
Keeps the tang in a correct position.
Then insert the needle on the other side, and depress that Tang.
You can now remove wire and connector.

Takes a little practice on the first one. Second one goes a little faster, then you're on your way. Just sounds difficult explained so detailed.

With the individual wires, and their connectors; you can plug each wire in where you want. Connect to the contact pin in the Front Panel header, that you wish.

Trying to cut that connector apart, and leave individual amounts of plug for insulation; may prove unfruitful.
Most of the time the material in-between two of those Molex connectors, is very thin.

Maybe one connector will come away with enough material, maybe not. Most will not.

Also you risk slicing your fingers.

Or you could find a plug connector that fits that group of 7-pins, and transpose the wires over to it.

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.

Main wires being;
Power On switch wires
Power On LED light wires
HarDDrive activity LED light wires
Reset switch wires, IF used

Since you have the manual, out of curiosity are pins 2 and 4 Power On LED?
1 and 3 are HarDDrive activity LED?
5 and 7 are Reset switch?

For additional questions please post back in Comment.

Click on Specifications.
Chipset: Intel 915G Chipset

http://www.ascendtech.us/gateway-augsburg-intel-915g-motherboard_i_mb4gwaugsburg.aspx

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

In the photo the Front Panel header is marked by the letter S.

Let's go to Intel Support, and download the Product Guide for an Intel D915GAV motherboard,

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-012048.htm

Click on the Adobe PDF icon to the far right.
(When you hover your mouse cursor over it, "Show Adobe Reader toolbar" is briefly shown)

Different design motherboard in the layout of certain headers, and connectors, but same Ol' Front Panel header pinout, Intel uses for 10 pin Front Panel header's.
Whether it is an Intel O.E.M. motherboard, or one they made for a pre-built computer manufacturer.

Front Panel header for Gateway 500GR, is next to the bottom edge of the motherboard, and all the way towards the right.
5 pins across the Top row, 4 pins across the bottom row.

Pins on the Top row are numbered ODD.
Pins on the Bottom row are numbered EVEN.

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

BOTTOM row; Starting on the Right side going towards the Left;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light Emitting Diode)

Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire. If the HDD LED is dim when the Harddrive is active, 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. No Connection. Pin reserved for the factory.
(5 Volts DC)

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

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

F) Again, there is No pin 10.

OH, I'm just KIDDING!

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

On the motherboard the Front Panel header is marked as PANEL1.
Scroll the page down, until you come to Motherboard layout.
Click on the + sign to the left of it.

Shows an illustration of the motherboard.
Bottom/Right corner is PANEL1. The black rectangle that is sitting vertically, in the motherboard photo.

Motherboard installed in computer case, the Front Panel header is two columns of contact pins.
FOUR on the Right side, FIVE on the Left side.

I don't know the actual numbering of the pins, so I'm going to number them myself;

Starting on the Left side at the Top, going down,
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

Starting on the Right side at the Top, going down,
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

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

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used. If not, do not connect to them.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. It was a +5 Volt power 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 is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

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

F) NO pin 10, just a blank spot.

How to find out what wires are what, in that Front Panel harness connector?

Follow the wires from the connector, up to the Front Panel.

Front Panel removed it is easier to see where the wires go.
You can follow the color code of the wires, and see which twisted pair go up to the Power On switch.

You can also see which ones go to the Power On LED.
(Light Emitting Diode, so it is a light)

Reset switch, (IF there is one), same thing.

The only pair of wires that will be left is the HDD LED wires.
HarDDrive activity LED.

The 9-pin plug will have to be CAREFULLY cut apart. Separate the wires, AND their metal terminals. (WATCH your fingers!)

Mercury Motherboard PI845GLM-L manual needed for wire connections... please help me


If my information is correct;

Orient the motherboard so that we are both looking at it in the same direction,
Processor to the top, Ram Memory slots to the right, white PCI slots to the bottom.

The front plastic panel of your computer that has the Power On button, Harddrive activity LED light, and Power On LED light, 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.

The Front Panel header is all the way down on the right corner. Panel 1.

The Front Panel header, or Panel 1, is a rectangular block that is positioned lengthwise, across the bottom of the motherboard.

There are 4 pins across the Top, and 5 pins across the Bottom.

The pins are numbered.
They are numbered Even across the Top row.
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. (There is NO Pin 10. Just a blank spot)

They are numbered Odd across the Bottom row.
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light. (HDD LED)
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire. ( + )
{ Pin 2 is for the Negative wire. ( - ) }

If the LED light is dim when operating, turn the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, (Reset button), IF a Reset switch is used.
Pin 5 is for the Negative wire

C) Pin 9 is RVSD_DNU
Reserved Do Not Use.

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

If the LED light is dim turn the wires around.

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

Hi ,, i have just fitted a intel d845gvsrb in my pc but i am not sure where the tower speaker wire , reset sw , power sw , power led , h h d led and the black single one go`s can you please help me ..


The Picture below shows you the locations of the places to put those wires are in relation to your motherboard. In yellow is the power switch and such. and the audio connection is in red.
avatar23454_9.jpg

The Pin layout for the power and other connector are as follows:
avatar23454_10.jpg

the layout for the audio header is as follows: avatar23454_8.jpg

To install the cable that connects a front panel audio solution to the front panel audio header, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off all peripheral devices connected to the computer. Turn off the computer and disconnect the AC power cord.
  2. Locate the front panel audio header (J8A1).
  3. Remove the three jumpers from the header (this disables the back panel audio connectors).
  4. Install a correctly keyed and shielded front panel audio cable.
  5. Connect the audio cable to the front panel audio solution.

To restore back panel operations follow these steps:
1. Remove the front panel audio cable. 2. Install a jumper on pins 5-6 (rear R channel). 3. Install a jumper on pins 9-10 (rear L channel). 4. Install a jumper on pins 1-2 (mic). 5. Replace the cover.

I just built a new computer and when i tried to boot it up nothing happened. The Corsair ax850 PSU isn't even "humming" or giving any indication that it has power. The 110v wall plug has power....


You won't get any 'fireworks' or 'smoke', widsss.

A) Make sure the Power On switch is connected to the correct pins, in the Front Panel header on the motherboard.

(The Front Panel is the plastic front of your computer where the Power On button, HarDDrive activity LED, Power On LED, etc., is located.
The pin area on the motherboard that the Front Panel cables (Wires) plug into, is the Front Panel header)

Either you do not have
1) The correct cables (Wires) plugged into the motherboard from the Front Panel,
or,
2) A bad Power On switch,
or
3) A bad Power Supply
Even if the Power Supply is brand new, it can still be a dud.

There is a simple test to see if the problem may be the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.
After you have made sure the problem is not incorrectly attaching the wrong wires, from the Front Panel to the motherboard, reply back in a Comment, and I'll detail out the simple test for you if you wish.

ALSO:
B) Make sure the 4-pin ATX +12 volt power cable is plugged in, if your motherboard uses it.
It's power for the Processor.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

C) Your motherboard may not use a 4-pin +12 volt power cable. It may require more power.
In this case an 8-pin EPS +12 volt power cable is used. The equivalent of two 4-pin +12 volt power cables.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#eps8

(Note*
1) Red wires are 5 volt
2) Yellow wires are 12 volt
3) ANY Black wire you see is a Ground wire )

I await your findings.
