The header connections that you are looking for are on the edge of the motherboard near the battery. Look for a group of gold contacts sticking straight up at you. The silkscreen tells you which header are for what light or switch. You will see one that says "PWR LED". Another says "PWR SW" Another says "HDD LED". They are printed very small. You will see others in that vicinity that say "SAST1" and "SPKR". Ignore them.Look along the edge where the battery is mounted some are located around the nearby corner but still along the edge. All should be on the edge nearst the front of your machine. Others may be along the edge facing the bottom of your machine.

    Under the grn/wht wire is written "PWR LED". Under the red/wht wire is written "PWR SW". Under the blk/wht wire is written "HDD LED". Yours should be similar.

ASUS MOTHERBOARD A7V8X-X FRONT PANEL WIRING DIAGRAM


Most of the wires on the front panel are just for LED Lights other than the Power Button. Look on the motherboard for the abbreviated spellings of PWR for the Power Button, RST for Reset, HDD for Hard Drive, etc. Only the PWR will keep your system from booting up. If you place the others on the wrong set of pins the Led light will not illuminate.

Hi:
To solve your puzzle, you need to find the manual for your motherboard. If you don't have it still, almost all of them are available online at the manufacturer's support website. The manual always has the pin out diagram for the motherboard, and from there its just a matter of plugging the small connections together. Remember that connections for LED lights have polarity, meaning that they need hooked up one particular direction for the light to work, but any switch connection doesnt matter.

Hope this helps

I cant get the HDD LED to work... yes it is hooked up right...


Some of the wires going from the power switch, reset switch, speaker, and LEDs must be attached to the motherboard the correct way. That is, they must not only be placed in the right spot where they need to go, but they also must be connected with positive and negative wires on the right pins.

If your HDD LED is not lighting up when the HDD is "thinking", try reversing the cable where the HDD LED wire plugs in (just flip it so the black wire is where the non-black wire was). I tried to find a good picture of your motherboard to guide you but they were not very helpful. From squinting really hard, I believe the spot they should plug into the board is by the CMOS battery. There might be printed words on the board surrounding the area to connect them that tells you which two pins are for the HDD LED.
