SOURCE: Upgrading BTX Motherboard

Hi, I think you are looking at the front USB pin aray connector. The on/off switch and LED light pins are usualy along the edge of the board nearest the front of the case. They will be marked with ID: lettering:- pwrs, hdd led, rs-sw, pwr led. If your case has one block plug you will haave to gently seperate the segments and plug them on one at a time. The power and reset switch will work either way but the LED will only work when plugged the right way around, it wont do any harm if they are plugged backwards they just wont work, so experiment. regards mistyman

SOURCE: No sound from front panel of GIGABYTE GA-MA69G-S3H

Aloke,
It does mention in your manual (top of pg. 28 -notes), that in order to use the HD Front Panel Audio connector the pin configuration are different than the AC97 connections. Your current case is set up for AC97. You will have to contact Mfg. for the case click the link for Gladiator support:
http://www.a-top.com/jsp/info.jsp?number=3

You can try this, open up your control panel, look for an icon that's named Sound Effects Manager. Open it. Click speaker configuration.
This is part of Realtec's software. This is where you can setup & check both front & back ports (Audio & Mic).
If this part of Realtec did not install goto Gigabyte & down load your audio software & re-install it. (Just a suggestion).

Hope this helps. If you make the call it will be a fix.
Good luck.

+SPEAK- speaker of your computer that is located on the front of your casing. it has a hole on it so that you just can insert a speaker with a rc jack aside from the rear casing of your speaker.

SOURCE: abit NF-M2S Power Led Connector

The model number for your Abit motherboard is incorrect (Abit doesn't list one with it). I think I might have found what you really have, though. If so, the power LED attaches to the opposite side of the speaker connector, which is next to another set of headers. You should see it notated as such on the MB, too.

Feel free to take a look at it, and see if it matches what you have:

42y6492 front panel connection


This is a motherboard originally for an IBM Lenovo ThinkCentre A55
I found a manual on:
http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/thinkcentre_pdf/41x5664.pdf
page 43 gives a lay-out overview which connectors need to be attached to the front panel: 12 and 17.
12 are 2 USB 4-pin connectors and 17 is on the picture I found a black plastic block with a special connector next to the CMOS battery.
http://cdn3.volusion.com/wafsx.utqdd/v/vspfiles/photos/42Y6492-2.jpg?1387802031
You might consider connecting simple pins from connector 14, if that is easier for your casing.

Need ethernet and mobo drivers


The i in i915p, and i915g, stands for Intel.

It is a motherboard chipset made BY Intel, for IBM/Lenovo.
HOWEVER, just as you suspected, the drivers are proprietary from Lenovo.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4.2FPentium_D.2FPentium_EE_chipsets

Research has led me to conclude the Lenovo 29r8260 motherboard, was used in the IBM/Lenovo ThinkCentre M51; series of Desktop PC's.

Let's go see if this holds true, using the information we have.......

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/lenovo-thinkcentre-m51/4507-3118_7-31000439.html

Intel 915G motherboard chipset

http://www.ebay.com/itm/IBM-ThinkCentre-M51-Motherboard-3-4GHz-P4-HT-29R8260-8143-WMG-/360578959486?pt=US_Motherboard_CPU_Combos&hash=item53f42e487e

So far everything looks good.
One more thing to check.........
Go to Device Manager, and see if Broadcom is listed; under -
Network adapters.

(Using WinXP as an example,
Start > Right-click on My Computer > Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Hardware tab > Left-click on Device Manager.
Left-click on the + sign next to - Network adapter)

Conclusion?
If Broadcom is the name of the ethernet chipset, it will be in the Network adapter list.
If this holds true, then the following Lenovo Support website, for the ThinkCentre M51 is the one you want,

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/default.page?selector=expand

Using the Ethernet driver as an example;

1) Click on - Networking: LAN (Ethernet)
2) Click on the blue - [+] Click for files

3) Click on the blue - Broadcom Ethernet driver and software.
(Or Download, to the right)
4) A small window will come up -
Opening q3etn12us13.exe
Click on Save File.

5) A small download window will come up.
Allow the file to download all the way, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on -
Next, Next, and Finish.

If you are not asked to restart your computer, do so.
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
WinXP: Click on Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart.

I'm sure you didn't need all that, but included just in case.

For additional questions please post in a Comment, or on Reply at the end of the solution.

I have the same problem!!!


Diagonally opposite to where you connect your mouse and keyboard, there will be pins for connecting front panel connectors. You can identify them by the names like SPK or Speaker written near them. You just have to match the front panel connectors with that of the pins. USB pins will be near these pins and will be labled as USB5 or USB4 on the motherboard. USB front panel connector can be inserted in only one direction.

Need manual for l-nc51m motherboard


You did not mention which ThinkCentre model you are using, but I know that the Lenovo 3000 J115 is using this motherboard. Look at the hardware manual from Lenovo (link) and see if that is what you are looking for.

You can also try to locate it yourself (link)

If this is not the right one for you, just come back here and leave a comment with more details about your computer - I'm happy to help.
