The led on the front won't light, and I have power connected, but nothing. Is there a reset somewere?


I am assuming you are trying to power up an installed motherboard, based on the category selection. You say that you have power connected. That means that you have connected the 20 (24) pin main connector and the 4 or 8 pin CPU power connector to the motherboard. Have you connected the front panels controls to the motherboard header? There are connections for the power switch, power LED, HDD LED, reset switch (optional). They must be connected in order for the motherboard to start. THe HDD and Power LED connections are polarity-based, so if you hook them upo backwards, their respective LED will not light. The HDD LED plug is usually red and white with the red being on the positive (+) terminal. The Power LED plug is usually green and white with the green wire going to the positive terminal. The power switch and reset switch wires can be connected either way as they are not polarized.

Where can i get pyramid-9 PCB No BA41-00167A manual book for setting up power switch,hdd led,reset etc connection setting ???????????


Hello, i was made a search in google, i guess you must look it too, and a don't get nothing, but, I think i've a solution for you, according my own experience, i've installed 2 kinds of different MB, and, althoug there are different brands, the connection pins are the same, ie, the front panel connector that connect HDD Led, Power Led, Reset and Power, is a 9 pin conectors (really have 10, but 1 pin is cut for reference) and commonly is called PANEL 1

Then, i guide you

2 8
. . . . this will be 2,4,6 and 8 pins (from left to right)
. . . . . this will be 1,3,5,7 and 9 pins
1 9


Power Led + in pin 2
Power Led - in pin 4
Power Button # or + in pin 6 (It's no critic the orientation, it have no polarity, is a push buttom)
Power Button GND or - in pin 8

HDD Led + in pin 1
HDD Led - in pin 3
GND from Reset Buttom in pin 5
# from Reset Buttom in pin 7

THE PIN 9 has no connection

Looking to plug in my main switch and need help with finding the right port(s)...only see one color coded set of pins available....


Open the link provided below by MSI;
Download and install Adobe reader to view manual.
Adobe Free; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
Manual for K8T Neo-FSR;
http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=searchresult&keywords=K8T+Neo-FSR
Download the maual if needed. Open to page 2-20.
Use the manual to connect you're case wires to the motherboard. JFP1 provides power to Reset Switch, HDD, Power on switch and Power LED. Use JFP2 - connect internal speaker. (Bios uses this for POST).
Power On Self Test. If you use Adobe you can zoom in on pg. 2-20 which will help you connect each set of wires to their matching MB pins.

Cheers'
Mike

I cant get the HDD LED to work... yes it is hooked up right...


Some of the wires going from the power switch, reset switch, speaker, and LEDs must be attached to the motherboard the correct way. That is, they must not only be placed in the right spot where they need to go, but they also must be connected with positive and negative wires on the right pins.

If your HDD LED is not lighting up when the HDD is "thinking", try reversing the cable where the HDD LED wire plugs in (just flip it so the black wire is where the non-black wire was). I tried to find a good picture of your motherboard to guide you but they were not very helpful. From squinting really hard, I believe the spot they should plug into the board is by the CMOS battery. There might be printed words on the board surrounding the area to connect them that tells you which two pins are for the HDD LED.

I need to know the sequence on how to connect my Power LED, Reset Switch, HDD LED, and M/B Switch up correctly. I have an MS-7142 VER:1 Can you help me?


Hi carlmtclem, your not alone when it comes to hooking up the right led connector to the MSI MB. Firstly, you need to know what wire color is positive & which is negative. Most commonly the color white is ground/negative. Wire colors do vary from case to case. So look at your case led wires. Which ever color is common for each 2-pin connector, is negative. (Except the speaker wire).
All other colors are positive.
(The speaker wire color for negative is usually black & red is positive).
Your MSI board has two separate sets of pins.
JFP2 is used for the speaker only. Do not connect the power led there.

Pin one for JFP1 is shown in the manual. Pin 1 is positive & pin 3 is negitive for the HDD-LED, ECT.

Thats it.

Good luck carlmtclem!
Thank you for using fixya.

Gigabyte GA-8INXP Motherboard Problem- front connector pins


If the wires from the reset switch is white/blue the blue wire is positive, Hdd red/white red is positive power Green/white Green is positive etc. The wires on the speaker connector will be red/black/black/white - red is positive. The colored wire is always positive. On all GA mb's the positive connection is always towards the back of the MB and are marked with a + on the base of the pin as you can see on the photo. Hope this help.
