SONY VAIO PCV RX 360DS or SY-K7vem Pro Athlon

2 problems, if you could please help!
1st, The SWX-66 (Power Swith) Board is not labeled any other way other than 1-8. How do I know which one goes to:HDD, LED, PWR, RST, SPKR, or PWR LED?
2nd, THE CNX-138 (USB) Board has a couple of plugs on it. Can you tell me where in how they go?
I would appreciate an e-mail back at, this is really the first time I ever had to put a computer together, especially with out a manual, or much help from Sony Tech support. If curiosity has got you in to wondering why the computer is in the condition it's in: Simple, It was donated here to the Ministry in which I volunteer at. Thanks for your time and answers, God bless. -Roy

Hi normally the pin headers are color coded as follows - green&white for power LED (2or3 pin), red&white for HDD LED,blue&white for Reset Button ,Yellow/orange&white for Powerbutton. On the power switch board the EVEN numbered pins are on one side and the ODD numbered pins opposite -

1 3 5 7
2 4 6 8
A speaker connection is not required because of on-board buzzer. So the connections are for PB , PLED,HDDLED ,RESET. A wrong or reverse connection will not damage your mobo.

Be certain this is the flash bios for your system.
You can brick your motherboard with no way to revive it.

Good luck!

PS. Had a Soyo Dragon MB and LOVED that thing.

Replacing a failed soyo MB. need to know what the various wiring colors are - power, restart, etc. SY-K7VME


Are you sure this is not a SY-K7VEM? I did not see a VME.

Here is a link to the manual:

The Front Panel pinout can be seen on the motherboard layout on Page 5. Although this does not give wire colors, the small connectors should have abbreviated labels such as HDDLED or PWRLED.

Thanks for using Fixya.
