N1996 is NOT the model number. ALL MSI boards are labeled n1996 - it's their C-Tick number. You need to find the actual model number which should be listed on a sticker near the main CPU socket. Search for that on msi's website.

I have mercury mother board and its having nine pinsocket for reset switch,power switch,hd led ,etc but i dont know their proper connections. there are some nos besides but not understandable . can you...


Hi Rajen samani!
Most mercury motherboards with a nine pin front panel connection use the following configuration.
joehaydu_0.jpg
You may want to double check to make sure that your motherboard follows this configuration. Just go to http://www.mercury-pc.com/downloads.php, enter your model number, and you'll be able to download the manual for your board. The jumper configuration should be in a section labeled "Front Panel Connection" or something similar.
Hope that Helps!

I have a gigabyte ga 81865gme775 mother board, can you give me the front pannel connection details


hello jknr09

my name is ausi

i can not find your motherboard on gigabyte web site. however the boards nowadays are standard as far as front panel header goes.

on gigabyte mother board you will see the hedae as two rows of pins like this.

....
..... ....

the bottom row first 4 pins are the speaker pins. the next single pin is void the next two are reset switch. the last two are hard disk lead.
the top row first two pins are message lead (usually not used). the next two pins are power switch exactly opposite the reset switch.

the power lead connection on gigabyte boards are a three pin header next to the front panel header.

hopefully this is helpful.
please vote for me

I am looking to upgrade memory on an MSI N1996 Mother Board which has 2x 168 pin slots and 2x 184 pin slots. I wish to know if I can go to 2GB and which memory is best to use, i.e. ECC,...


If your motherboard supports ECC, and you can afford the much-higher cost of ECC RAM, then buying/using ECC is "best".

Note that "buffered" memory is much slower than "unbuffered" memory.

Where to hookup front panel (PIII-3754LMR - AMPTRON)


Front Panel Connector The front panel header is where the connectors of hard disk drive activity lights, case speaker, reset button, power on/off button, computer power on light, and key lock, are connected to make them function smoothly. In the past days, users always have difficulty connecting the front panel due to a lack of standard location on the motherboard. Today, AOpen integrated all these disorder but essential front panel connectors into one 20-pin connector for easy usage. Connecting the front panel would no longer be the headache of installing motherboard anymore. Below is a view of this user-friendly front panel connector of AOpen motherboard.

N1996 mother board


The only way to to fix this if your headers on your wires aren't labeled is to trace them back from the switch it self. Usually they are white and red. The orientation on the motherboard pins doesn't matter since it's only a switch. Make sure you are putting the plug onto the power switch jumpers, and not the power led, reset, etc..

The manual you need will be on the board manufacturers web page, howevr I will bet you have the case power switch and perhaps the reset switch on the wrong pins on the mother board. To check this, remove the switch leads from the mother board, then use a small screw driver and bridge the pins on the mother board a pair at a time. All of these leads plug on to the board in a line and not across the two lines of pins. when you get the mother board to fire up by this method geet a torch and look closely alongside the pins you will see the letters PWR SW or RS SW. It does not matter what polarity these two sets of leads are plugged onto both will work. The LED lights on the case front will only work if the polarity is correct but it will not do any harm if they are backwords. On the board you should se two sets of pins marked HDD and PWR these are the led light pins you will know you have them right when the usual red and green lights are working at the front of your tower.
