Question about Dell PowerEdge 1650 Server

1 Answer

Poweredge 1650 pinouts

Yes looking to identify mainboard connector for the front panel so I can fire it up, hdd indicator led, reset switch etc. I think I have figured out how to interface the power supply, but need to figure out how to connect switches and led's. I think it actually has an LCD status panel in the rack mount frame.
Ideally would love to find a scrapped out rack case for it, but nobody seems to be selling just that peice cheaply.

Hi there, i'm assuming that you have a bare bons system without a case whichis why you are asking the question.

The power switch and status LEDs are mounted on a control board that sits to the left of the drive bay at the front of the machine and connects to the mai board via a flexible circuit board/ribbon cable.

You might get more indication of where this connects from the service documentation which you can find here :-

Hope that's of some help.

Front panel connections


I don't find the Front Panel header pinout online, nor do I have an MSI MS-5191 in the shop.

I would suggest using one the LED lights with two wires.
(3-wire is a dual color LED)

There are two rows of pins. Usually the Power On switch, Power On LED, and Speaker; are on the same row.
HarDDrive activity LED, and Reset Switch are on the opposite row.

Speaker has 4-pins designated for it. All the others use 2-pins.
(Unless the PWR ON LED is a dual color jobbie)

Touch two pins next to each other, in the same row; with the 2-wire LED.
Start with finding the Power On switch first.

Usually the top row 1st two pins are Power On LED (Light)
Next in line are the 2 pins for the Power On switch.
Bottom row 1st two pins are usually HarDDrive activity LED (light)
Next 2-pins are usually Reset switch.

May not apply to a motherboard old enough to use a Socket 7 processor socket.
There may be 18 to 20-pins.
Bear in mind that many are not used, and probably 4 are for an internal speaker, for hearing BIOS Beep Codes.
May be two separate Front Panel headers.

Once you find the two contact pins in the Front Panel header, for the Power On switch; I would put the Power On switch wires on.
The small pin connector on the wire/s, will keep you from accidentally touching these two pins again, when the computer is on.

Now you have the two pins for the Power On switch, and the computer is running; then keep touching 2-pins at a time with the LED. (Light Emitting Diode)

LED stays on? You have the Power On LED (Light) pins.
LED blinks? HarDDrive activity LED (light) pins.
Computer restarts? Reset switch pins.

Look for abbreviations near the pins in the Front panel header.

PWR, Pwr, Pwr On, Sw, and SW; are just some of the abbreviations for the Power On switch.

HDD LED, and HDD are two for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light)
(If it states HDD SW it is the Power On switch. Weird old way of marking)

RST, Reset, and RSW, are for the Reset Switch.
(Reset Button)

If you see 4 pins marked with a bracket ( [ -> Turn so it's horizontal), these are for the internal speaker.

Type MSI front panel connector in your search bar, and look at -> images. See if you can find an image of your MSI Front Panel header pinout.

You can bet MSI carried out that Front Panel header pinout, on other MSI motherboards, besides the MS-5191.

The MSI MS-5191 may have been a motherboard made by MSI, especially for a pre-built computer manufacturer, and not listed on their website as an OEM motherboard.
(Original Equipment Manufacturer)

Won't have the Front Panel header pinout, listed on MSI's support website. (Doesn't)
But you can bet there IS an OEM motherboard made by MSI, that the Front Panel header DOES match.

May be different expansion slots, or motherboard chipset, or whatever; but the same Front Panel header pinout.

Regards,
joecoolvette

TRYING TO HOOK UP MU POWER BUTTON NEED TO KNOW


Hi there
The front panel connectors are mainly,
  • harddisk activity connector
  • power switch connector
  • reset switch connector
  • power LED connector
  • speakers connector
  • USB connector
Harddisk activity connector
This normally comes red in colour and is labeled as HDD-LED
Power switch connector
This comes green in colour and is labeled as POWER-SW
Reset switch connector
This usually comes grey in colour and is labeled as RST-SW
Power LED connector
This is usually green in colour and is labled as PWR-LED
Speakers connector
This speaker will give different beep sounds during boot to tell the user if there is any errors. It occupies 4 pins, however only 2 is important for the function. Be sure to connect the red coloured cable to the positive polarity and the black to the negative.

Simple pinout help


Front Panel Header pin assignments as follows:

Pins 2 + 4 = Power Led

Pins 6 + 8 = Power Switch

Pins 12 + 14 = LAN Activity Led

Pins 1 + 3 = HDD Led

Pins 5 + 7 = Reset Switch

Pin 9 = +5v

Pins 11 + 13 = ODD Led

Pin formation is as below with no pin in position 10.

2 4 6 8 10 12 14

1 3 5 7 9 11 13

You will probably need to extend the Front Panel connector cable to reach the header pins on a replacement motherboard - I did this with 2 x N76HL 10 pin extension cables (male to female) from Maplin.

Acer m464 front panel connectors


Sorry in the 1st instance for my lack of specific knowledge when it comes to ACER hardware.

Is the model of your MOTHERBOARD - Acer m464?

If so do you happen to still have a manual that came with the motherboard?

Sometimes you can see the pinout in white writing on the mainboard itself near the connector block... have a close look and see if it is there.

The pin out for the connector block will definately be in the mainboard manual. If you don't have the manual then you'll need to do a little searching for it... I'm sure a .pdf of it will be floating around... i guess start at the ACER site.

On the rack mount chassis, are the plastic chassis connectors grouped (ie. 2 wires into 1 connecter for pwr led, etc) or are they individual single pin connectors?

Either way for each group, one should have a little TRIANGLE on the opposing side to the writing. Conventionally this is your positive (+) pin when looking at the pinout diagram. Ensure you have correct polarity for all ur connections obviously.

See how you go mate.
