Cant find my motherboard pin out


http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2388344,00.asp?tab=Specs

With all due respect, you have the manual in front of you now

That is unless you started unplugging wires already, and didn't make notes, drawings, or take photos.

Let's use the Asus Essentio CM1630 motherboard for an example.
Couldn't find a CM1730, but that's OK. We'll use this one for a general example,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/OEM-ASUS-ESSENTIO-CM1630-MOTHERBOARD-61-MIBBJ5-01-TESTED-/181007679725?pt=Motherboards&hash=item2a24e600ed

Put your mouse cursor in the middle. Now move your mouse around, using the Zoom In feature.

If this motherboard were mounted in a computer case, it would be turned 90 degrees to the Right.
Bear that in mind.

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.
Goes by many abbreviated names.
PNL 1, FP1, PANEL1, etc.
(Panel 1, Front Panel 1, Panel 1)

Go to the Top/Right corner of the motherboard photo. To the 6 Blue SATA connectors.
Immediately to the bottom of them, is a white Front Panel header.
Two rows of contact pins sticking up.

You need to make notes, drawings, photo, whatever; of where the wires from the Front Panel, go to each one of those pins.
(Some may not be used)

How to know which wires coming from the Front Panel, are the Power On switch wires, Power On LED light wires, HarDDrive activity LED light wires?

Remove the Front Panel from the computer. If it is Not just a cover, EASE it off just enough to look behind it.

You usually can follow the Harddrive activity LED wires.
Harddrive activity LED is usually AWAY from the Power On switch, and Power On LED light.

There's two wires down.
Now look at where the Power On LED light is. Can you see wires going straight to it?
Two more wires down.

From process of elimination, you now know the last two wires going to the Front Panel, are for the Power On switch.

(The Power On switch, is part of the plastic Power On Button assembly. If you look close at the Power On Button assembly, you can see this)

THAT sir, is the MAIN thing.
I can guide you where the other cables go, as far as power cables, and Harddrive cables, and Optical Drive cables. (CD/DVD drive)

If you have already disconnected the Front Panel wires to Front Panel header on motherboard; you get to play a game(?)

Power Supply plugged into power, use a small flat tipped screwdriver, and touch two pins at a time.
When you get to the two Power On switch wire pins, the Power Supply will come on.

Now it is a process of elimination.
Use an LED with two wires, to find out what the rest of the pins are.
The rest of the contact pins in the Front Panel header.
Grab the HDD LED light, or Power On LED light.
You're getting a new computer case anyway.

Touch two pins, and the LED light blinks?
That's the HarDDrive activity LED light, pins.
LED stays on?
That's the Power On LED light, pins.

Either of those LED's are dim, (When the Harddrive is active, or when the computer is on), switch the wires around.
You have the Positive ( + ) wire mixed up with the Ground ( - ) wire.

Moving on.............
The 6 Blue SATA connectors on the motherboard:
If you look close you will see;
SATA0, SATA1, SATA2, SATA3, SATA4, and SATA5.
Or it may be,
SATA1, SATA2, SATA3, SATA4, SATA5, and SATA6.

The Harddrive plugs into SATA0 or SATA1.
Just depends on what the SATA connector numbering starts with.

The main optical drive, or a single optical drive; plugs into SATA1, or SATA2.
A secondary SATA optical drive will plug into SATA2 or SATA3.

(Look at the SATA numbering above, and you can compare side, by side )

HOWEVER, the beauty of SATA is; that you can plug whatever you want to, in ANY SATA connector on the motherboard; and BIOS will find it.

Plug the Harddrive into SATA 3? No problem.
Plug the optical drive into SATA 0? No problem.
BIOS will find the drive with the Operating System on it.
The Harddrive.
Then BIOS will know the other drive/s are optical drives.

(Make sure in the BIOS Setup utility, that the SATA connector on the motherboard you are using, is Enabled.
Otherwise BIOS will Not see the drive)

What cable from the Harddrive, and optical drive; plugs into those SATA connectors on the motherboard?
A SATA data cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_ports.jpg

Note the L-shaped opening in the SATA data cable connector.
Lines up with an L-shape on the motherboard connector.
One example of a SATA connector on the motherboard is shown.
This one is an Open design. Your SATA connectors on the motherboard, will be a Closed design.

Between a SATA data cable connector, and a SATA power cable connector, the SATA power cable connector is larger in width.
SATA data cable connector has 7-pins.
SATA power cable connector has 15-pins,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

See the SATA harddrive example?
Note the L-shape is pointing DOWN. It is this way EVERY time.
Now you know which way to turn the SATA data cable's connector, when installing. 'Foot' of L-shape goes Down.

Manual for 41t-ad motherboard


http://www.skyline-eng.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=8665

Bottom/Right corner of motherboard - Front Panel header. Take an LED with two wires on it, and touch pairs of pins. ( 2 )
When you briefly touch the 2 pins that turn it on, you have the Power On switch wires.

Do not touch these pins again, and test the rest of the pins.
LED stays on? You have the Power ON LED pins.
LED blinks? You have the HarDDrive activity LED.
Computer restarts? Restart switch pins.
Some pins do nothing, 4 in a row may be for speaker, some pins have +5 volts, and are not used either. (Factory use)

Dell case 4600 replaced mother board with gigabyte but front power wiring needs different connection plz show diagram


Pinout (Wiring diagram) for the GigaByte GA-8I865GVME motherboard's Front Panel header,

(Looks like a 1 but it is an 'Eye'. GA-8 i 865GVME ),
{The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the Front Panel cables (Wires) connect to, is the Front Panel header }

;Motherboard Manual download page,

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=1933&dl=1#manual

Look under the heading - English
Look across from English, and click on the country name nearest yours.

This is a PDF file. After you click on the server country it may take 30 seconds or more, to see the first page come up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.
(Took approximately 30 seconds just now for me. Medium speed DSL connection)

At the top of the PDF file is the page number box. It is to the right of the Down Arrow.
Go to Page 6.

Processor to the top, Ram Memory slots to the right, the Front Panel header is at the bottom right corner.
(F_PANEL)

It is two rows of pins that are laid out horizontally. It is parallel to the bottom outside edge of the motherboard.

Go to Page 22.
F_PANEL (Front Panel Jumper)

The pins are numbered Even on the top, and Odd on the bottom.

Starting at the Left side of the motherboard going to the Right, for the TOP row of pins;

Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, and 20

Starting at the Left side of the motherboard going to the Right, for the BOTTOM row of pins;

Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, and 19

A) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light. (On the computer case. Not on the motherboard)
(Pin 2 is for the Positive { + } wire.
If the LED light is dim, switch the wires around )

B) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Plastic - Power On button assembly has the Power On switch inside it)

C) Pins 10 and 12 are not used. In fact there probably isn't any pins.

D) Pins 14, 16, 18, and 20 are used for an internal 'speaker'. The 'speaker' is used so you can hear any BIOS Error Codes. (The computers way of telling you something is wrong, and an area to look into for it)

E) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
The LED light that blinks when the harddrive is active in use.
(Pin 1 is for the Positive wire)

F) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF USED.

G) Pin 9 is NC. Not Connected


To Add:
1) If the Dell Dimension 4600 power on LED light has 3 wires, it is a dual color LED.
Only use two of the wires, and one color.
(Follow the wires to the LED light. One is a Ground wire { - }, and the other two are positive wires for the dual colors of the LED )

2) The Front USB headers are on Page 24

Make sure your Power Supply has a 4-pin ATX +12 volt power cable. Plugs into the square connector on the motherboard, to the bottom Left corner of the Processor socket.
It is power for the Processor.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

CAUTION!!

For a time period Dell was really @nal about being a Proprietary computer manufacturer.
This means they wanted THEIR parts used in THEIR computers.
I don't know if your Dimension 4600 falls into this category, or not.

They switched the pins around in the ATX main power cable connector, on the motherboard.
Go to Page 18.
Look at the connector that has 20 socket holes. (Two columns of 10 socket holes)

The Dell Dimension 4600 also has a 20-pin ATX main power cable connector, on the motherboard,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/techov.htm#1138239

Scroll the page down a little, look at the illustration for the DC Power Connector P1
See how the power and color of the wires are labeled for each pin in the connector?

Orient the connector by the lock tab on the side of it. Now compare the color chart here for the wires in a standard 20-pin ATX main power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

A) Orange colored wires are 3.3 Volts
B) Red wires are 5 Volts
C) Yellow wires are 12 Volts
D) ALL Black wires are Ground wires
(ALL are DC voltage)

Guess what would happen if a 12 volt wire is connected to a pin that uses 3.3 Volts, or 5 Volts?
Yep, lets the 'Smoke' out of the motherboard.

Guess what would happen if a 3.3 , 5, or 12 volt wire is plugged into a pin that is a Ground wire?
Same thing. Will fry the motherboard. Possibly the Processor, Ram Memory, Harddrive, and so on, also.

Check before you plug in, and turn the computer on.

How to hook up the face plate of a emachine w3400 Wich includes 3 wires 1 power butten and 2 led lights


Look at the pinout of the Front Panel header, of the eMachine W3400's motherboard.

The plastic front of the computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the cables (Wires) from the Front Panel connect to,
is the Front Panel header.

The motherboard for an eMachines W3400 desktop computer is an MSI ms-7145
(Micro Star International)

Orient the motherboard in your view so that we are both looking at it the same way.
Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, white PCI slots (3) to the Bottom.

JFP1 is the Front Panel header.
(Junction Front Panel 1)

JFP1 is on the Bottom Right corner. There are two columns of pins arranged vertically.
(The JFP1 header runs parallel to the Right side of the motherboard)

The Left side column of the JFP1 header is numbered Odd.
Starting at the Top and going Down, the pins are numbered;
1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

The Right side column is numbered Even.
Starting at the Top and going Down, the pins are numbered:
2, 4, 6, and 8.
There is NO Pin 10

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive Activity LED light. (HDD)
If the LED light is dim will operating switch the wires around

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch. (Reset button)
> IF Used

C) Pin 9 is Not used. (NC. No Connection)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light (If dim switch the wires around)

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Power On button)

Trace the wires back to the Power On switch. Even if it means temporarily removing part of the Front Panel to see.

Same with the LED lights.
See which wires go to the Power On LED, and HDD Activity LED. (Harddrive Activity LED)

Follow the 3 wires, and tell me where they go to on the Front Panel.
USB port?
Memory Card Reader?
Firewire port? (a1394)

My power led connector (green,white) power sw connector (black,white) got out of place and i dont where they go


The eMachines T3302 desktop computer, uses an FIC K8M-800M motherboard.
(First international Computer, Inc.)

Where those wires go on the motherboard, is termed a Front panel header.

The Front Panel is the plastic front bezel of your computer.
(Where the Power On button is, Power On LED light, and so on)

Looking at the motherboard with the Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, the Front Panel header is at the bottom right corner, and over to the left.

Look at the jumper block in the bottom right corner. Right in the corner.
This is the LED type selector, jumper block.
Has 6 pins.
3 across the Top, 3 across the Bottom.

(This jumper block is to set whether you are using a Power On LED light, that has Dual Colors, or a Single color.
The default setting of the jumper on the block, is set to use a Dual Color LED light, for the Power On LED)

Move to the left of this jumper block. The Front Panel header is to the left of this jumper block.

(FIC terms it a Front Panel Block Connector)

It should be White in color.
Is right against the bottom edge of the motherboard. (Parallel to the outside edge of the motherboard)

Has two rows of pins sticking up.
5 across the Top.
4 across the Bottom.

The pins are numbered from the Right, going towards the Left.

(From the Power On LED jumper block, towards the Front Panel header)

On the Top row going from Right, towards the Left,
Pins 1 ,3, 5, 7, and 9.

On the Bottom row going from the Right, towards the Left,
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
(Green)

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Power On switch.
Pin 5 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
(Black)

[Although it really doesn't matter which way the wires go. It's a SWITCH]

C) Pins 2 and 4 are for the HarDDrive activity LED.
Pin 2 is for the Positive wire ( + )

D) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Reset switch.
(IF used)

If any of your LED lights are dim, after attaching the Positive wire for each LED, it's because the Positive wire is on the wrong pin.
Switch the wires around

Power LED on but no boot up


it could be your power switch, veriy that it isnt the power supply by

1.) un-plug it from the main board
2.) look at the main board connector(one coming of the power supply)
3.) you should see green wire and next to it a black one
4.) using a paper clip bridge the too wires
5.) if it works proceed to net step if not get a new power supply

to check case switch and board switch

1.) plug in power supply to main board
2.) look at the pins where the power button connects to
3.) using a metal object (blade screw driver) bridge the pins

if the board should start up>
then its your power button on the case that is bad, you can try to repair it, chage it or buy a new case,

if it doesnt work.
1.) ensure that jcms(jumper to flash the bios) is set correctly
2.) unjack each drive one at a time to see if any is causing stalling
3.) get a new main board
