How do I check to see if the power supply is working?

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wires of the Front Panel go to; is the Front Panel header.

JFP1 is Junction Front Panel 1.
Better method IMHO is to state as Front Panel - Junction 1, so it's easier to understand.

Just some 'trivia' that I thought I would post to you.

Would however like to post;

Anti-Static Precautions

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
Relieve your body of Static BEFORE reaching inside your computer.

(The Static? More than likely you won't see it, or feel it.
Your computer will,.....POOF! )

Computer ON a table, computer Unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal case upon your return.

Since I'm here;

The method to test if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply; is to use a jumper wire on the 24-pin ATX main power wire's connector,

This is an example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

A jumper wire is used to BRIEFLY connect the Green wire, to ANY Black wire.
The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire. Abbreviated as PS_ON.

ANY Black wire you see is a Ground wire.
(And that goes for ANYWHERE in the computer)

The preferred jumper wire is a straightened out paperclip.
It is bent into a U-shape. Turn it upside down, and that is how it's used.
The top is wrapped a few times with black plastic electrical tape.
This taped area is for your fingers, and thumb to hold onto.
The 'legs' that come down on each side, are what is used.

One leg slides down, into the back of the ATX main power cable's connector, into the socket hole with the Green wire in it.
[The BACK of the connector is where the wires go in ]

Slides down RIGHT NEXT TO the green insulation of the wire, and goes down in far enough, to touch a female metal terminal.

All wires going into the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector, end in this style of female metal terminal,

Looking at the middle photo of the Playtool link, you can barely see the openings of the female metal terminal connectors.
They look like small brass rings.

The other 'leg' of the U-shaped jumper wire, goes down into a socket hole, with ANY Black wire in it.

24-pin ATX main power cable is plugged in, just like the photo to the Right, in the Playtool link.
Power Supply plugged into power.

U-shaped jumper wire is used Briefly. No more than 2 seconds.
[The Power On Switch is a Momentary Contact Switch ]

What is the Voltage involved in the Soft Power On circuit?
5 Volts DC.
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.

Just want you to know, so you won't think I could lead you into being Shocked.
Not saying there won't be a small spark, though.
You may wish to wear a glove on the 'jumper wire hand'.

IF the Power Supply comes on, you have a bad Power On switch.
(You noticed before that, but this would have led you right to it)

IF the Power Supply does NOT come on, you have a bad Power Supply.

Going further;
The Power Supply in your computer is an SMPS.
Switched-Mode Power Supply,

Another widely used term for Power Supply is the abbreviation
PSU. Power Supply Unit.

It converts the dangerous high AC voltage, 100 to 240 Volts, from your home or business; into 3 low DC Voltages.
The dangerous voltage is contained IN the metal case of the Power Supply.

The 3 low DC Voltages are;
A) 3.3 Volts DC
B) 5 Volts DC
C) 12 Volts DC

Gateway Support > Gateway GT5056 Desktop PC > Main Support page,

In the list click on Components,

In the list go to the bold black subheading -> Motherboards
Click on the blue title ->
105552 - Foxconn C51GU01Motherboard

On this page click on -> Product Views

Now you can see where every cable goes on the motherboard.
Let's take -> Q - Front Panel Connector, for an example,

Now you can see where every wire goes on the Front Panel header,

I don't know the color code of the twisted wires, that come from the Front Panel.
If -> I had to trace them, I would remove the Front Panel, and trace them to the;
A) Power On switch (PWR SW, or simply SW)
B) Power On LED (Light) (PWR LED)
C) Reset switch, (IF used) (RST SW)
D) HarDDrive activity LED (Light) (HDD LED)

If I were a betting man, I would bet the Red and White twisted pair of wires went to Pins 6 and 8. Power On switch.

Blue and White twisted pair of wires to the Power On LED. (Light)
Pins 2 and 4.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

[I know. There's 5 minutes of your life you'll never get back.
I just posted the above, in case you run into this problem someday, and it isn't a loose Front Panel wire ]

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.

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

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.

you may want a tech to do this.
E000, E001, E002, E003 CODES
To reset these codes perform the following:
Remove the front panel and be careful not to bend or break the flexible
cable connected to the panel and the DC Controller.
Turn on the copier and short the jumper wires JP3 and JP4 on the dc
controller pcb with a screwdriver.
The count ratio indicator on the control panel turns on 'F'. When 'F'
is turned on stop shorting the jumper wires
Turn off copier and turn it back on and its then reset.

I removed the connections on my motherboard and i forgot the connections of the front panel


on your motherboard you will find these connections (each motherboard varies) just put the corresponding cables to the pins. it will tell you which is which on the end of the cable.


let me know if you get stuck

How to connect the front panel sould device?

Do you mean speaker or front panel audio? The front panel audio connector is located at the rear of the board, behind the PCI connectors - the speaker connections are in the panel connector block (2x10 pin header) located at the front left of the board.

With the board in it's normal position, the speaker pins are on the right hand side of that block, on the pin nearest the front and the one 3 positions behind that

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.
