Power button hookup confusion

Hopefully you can help me. I am installing the MSI 651-V Motherboard and I want to make sure I am hooking up the power, reset, and LEDs the right way. I dont want to fry the board I just waited so long to get. I couldnt seem to find anything else and I am hoping to get this project of building my new computer done today.

Thank you for listening,

This applies directly to the MS-7082 motherboard. I was able to see that some pins are indeed labeled. Looking at the board where the pins are in the lower left position, starting on the right, on the outside (the green pins) are for the power LED. One looks like it has the colors striped. That's the positive terminal. (if lite won't lite, revers connection) The next two are black. That's for the power switch. Again, one is designated as positive. On the other row, there were no indicators to show what is what.
However, there may actually be some common placement of the connectors. I have two motherboards that I'm swapping out. One is the MS-7082 and the other is a P5GC-MX from ASUS. The ASUS manual shows the same pin placement for the power led and switch. It shows the same missing pin in the same position. I'm betting the other two connectors will be the same. The HD LED is the first two on the right (or the two red connectors). The next three (blue) are for the reset switch. On the ASUS, only the right two connectors are for the reset switch. This may be the only place where testing will have to be done. That last pin has a plus on it and the reset switch does have positive and negative connectors. I hope this helps.

It easy to insert the connector of Reset, Power, And LED

Becuse everything is used to be properly written ur motherboard,

Checkout for the lower left corner of ur motherboard.(Behind the FDD Connector's right corner)

Hookup the connection by reading on down of the every PINs on your board.

Hello there,
Here is the link that will show your motherboards CPU support. just click the link.

CPU Installation Procedures for Socket AM2
1. Please turn off the power and unplug the power cord before installing the CPU.
2. Pull the lever sideways away from the socket. Make sure to raise the lever up to a 90-degree angle.
3. Look for the gold arrow on the CPU. The CPU can only fit in the correct orientation. Lower the CPU down onto the socket.

4. If the CPU is correctly installed, the pins should be completely embedded into the socket and can not be seen. Please note that any violation of the correct installation procedures may cause permanent damages to your mainboard.
5. Press the CPU down firmly into the socket and close the lever. As the CPU is likely to move while the lever is being closed, always close the lever with your fingers pressing tightly on top of the CPU to make sure the CPU is properly and completely embedded into the socket.

Installing the CPU Cooler
1. Position the cooling set onto the retention mechanism. Hook one end of the clip to hook first.
2. Then press down the other end of the clip to fasten the cooling set on the top of the retention mechanism. Locate the Fix Lever and lift up it.
3. Fasten down the lever.
4. Attach the CPU Fan cable to the CPU fan connector on the mainboard.


Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Problem with power

Make sure the power cables are plugged into the pins properly on the motherboard.

Once you do this then go ahead and reseat the power supply connectors to the motherboard. Only hook up these two connectors from the power supply for now.

Try turning on the computer and hopefully you will get it to turn on now. If you can't then make sure the switch on the power supply is set to 115v. Once this is done try turning on the computer again.

If you still can't get it to turn on then try a known good working power supply or new power supply. If it still doesn't turn on then you know at this point that the motherboard is bad.

S/PDIF Location on motherboard

if you look at the manual

it states that there are SPdif ports, I cannot see any hookups on the mainboard for these, however if you look on page 26 of the manual you can see that there is a coaxial output SPdif and an optical SPdif out, you should be able to connect to those without any problems

hope this helps
