Get a magnifying glass and use it to look at the little connectors on the ends of the wires. The connectors usually have small print to show PWR (power), RES (reset), PWR LED or P-LED (power indicator light) and so on. On the motherboard look for a group or cluster of tiny pins sticking up from the motherboard, usually located near the edge of the board furthest from the processor socket. Your magnifier may allow you to read the fine print on the board near the pins.

If you can describe the problem by listing the wore colours and any lettering on them, I might be able to help. Also the motherboard you are trying to connect to as I need to find out the Fpanel pinout

To help you initially.

1.) Wires that are grouped in a series of Red Green white and black are commonly the USB connectors which will go to the uSB headers.

2.) Black and white wire coupled together as a 2 pin is usually the power switch which goes to the Fpanel header

3.) Any wires that appear to be fused in a plastic type sheath are sensor wires.

I'd first try tracing the source of the wires and see where they lead on the front panel, note these down and repost

Ref area temp stay at 12C. Ventilation dont work. New bulb light dont work. Front door indicator for ref. temp doesnot work. Freezer work at -11C

You didn't list a make and model but I have seen similar problems in GE refrigerators that have a computer mother board in them. The board gets damaged by possible power surges and since it controls almost everything you get strange operations and temps. Most mother boards and mounted on the back outside of the cabinet under a cover plate about 8 by 12 inches with screws all around the edge.

Front panel Mic not working when connected to Mother Board

Yeah,sounds like the case wasn't designed for that board. Just carefully double check the pins in the manual for the board. If you don't have the manual,check the asus site.

E machines computer, im845g mother board connection pins

The three cables are for power, reset, and an indicator light. They will all be connected within one centimeter of each other on the motherboard. You will see two rows of metal pins about five mm tall. There will be white letters printed on the motherboard. PWR, HD, RESET, SPKR. You want your indicator light connected to the HD pins, the power button to the PWR pins, and the reset button to the RESET pins.

Please post again if you need more help.

Wire came loose on pavilion xe 734 that supplie power to hard dir

First of all these wires don't supply power to HDD. These wires are for indicator LEDs on the front
panel of the cabinet. One wire `power sw' is to switch on the system from the power button on front panel. `power led' wire is of the power led on the front panel. All these wires will be connected to the cluster of pins on one corner of the mother board. If you can see it will be indicated & printed near the cluster of pins on the mbd, that which pair of pins is meant for what connector. Try to correlate the names on connector with the print on the mbd.

Front panel connector

First of all remove the front panel connectors before powering up, cause U do not want to put any wires to the USB headers. In doing so u might damage u'r board Second get your hands on the mother board manual,, if the front header has no label printing indicating the connection details. If no manual. then get on line and do a google search you'll find plenty of info's on how to DIY. Happy hunting Rifaa

Front panel wiring

Hi, Maybe we can wing it if you can send an image of the motherboard closeup on the F_PANEL connections and the wires from the front panel itself, or get the specific motherboard model during POST so we can try getting URL of manual. In some instances, the front panel wires are: Green wire, power on green light +, white wire is power on green light -; Red & Black, speaker; Red & white - HDD red activity light indicator where red is HDD + & white is HDD -; Orange & white - Reset Black & White - power on Post back so we can figure things out. Good luck and kind regards.
