Hi cloudius, do you have you're manual for this board? If not download it from this link. (Click on the link).

Go to page 14. System panel connector.
Most people get confused with wire color. If you're case connector wires have white as a common color, than the white is ground. Positive wires can be colored blue, red, and white with a strip. Ground (For a case speaker is usually black). The front panel connector description uses 9-pins. According to you're manual (Looking at page 14.) Pin 1(bottom left of two rows of pins). Is for the hard drive LED. (Up from pin 1 is pin 2). Pin 2 is the power + for the Power LED. So to hook up the Hard drive LED, Place the + wire on to pin 1 & the - ground plugs onto pin 3, (Which is to the right of pin 1). Now you have the basic pattern. Next connector. Power LED uses pin 2 + Positive & pin 4 - negative. PWRBTN#, known as power button. + positive connects to pin 6 & - negative connects to pin 8. Lastly is the RESET# switch. Connect + to pin 7 & - to pin 9 also shown as
Dummy. That’s it.

Good Luck cloudius!
If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

I need a wiring diagram for an acer aspire m1610. I replaced the motherboard and now it powers on but the button doesnt power it off and im getting no signal to my screen, plz help

Doesnt power off:
I think your front-panel cables arent connected properly. (the picture might be wrong, because not all front-panels are the same)


No video signal:

The problem isn't with your monitor, it's wth your video card, motherboard, CPU or power supply. Do you get the single beep at startup?

Hello aunglina6

As i can see from the picture of your motherboard the connections are at the bottom close to the battery. it looks like this

o o o o 1 2 3 4
o o o o o 5 6 7 8 9

this is just to give you the idea how it is set up.

9 is no connection

8 + 7 is reset switch, 6 + 5 is hard disk LED with 5 the positive of + side.
1 + 2 is power LED with 1 the positive or + side, 3 + 4 is the power switch.

with the reset and the power switch don't worry about the positive or + side. it makes no difference.

good luck.

How many holes on the power-block on the old motherboard?
How many holes on the power-block on the new motherboard?

Examine the sides of the old and the new power-blocks.
One side should be smooth, and one side should have a "bump",
in order to hook to the "finger" on the power-connector.
Align the "finger" with the "bump".

Also, notice that the holes in the power-block are not "square"; they are D-shaped, to ensure that ONLY the correct posts on the power-connector will fit into the correct slots on the power-block.

The only way to to fix this if your headers on your wires aren't labeled is to trace them back from the switch it self. Usually they are white and red. The orientation on the motherboard pins doesn't matter since it's only a switch. Make sure you are putting the plug onto the power switch jumpers, and not the power led, reset, etc..

Power Switch

This board I think is an OEM board built by Asus for HP computers. Also named Pegasus.
Go here to find a PDF manual for that particular board -
On page 22, the last page, it shows you the pin-out for the connections for the front panel, ie - power button, reset, led's, etc. Hope this helps.
