The led on the front won't light, and I have power connected, but nothing. Is there a reset somewere?


I am assuming you are trying to power up an installed motherboard, based on the category selection. You say that you have power connected. That means that you have connected the 20 (24) pin main connector and the 4 or 8 pin CPU power connector to the motherboard. Have you connected the front panels controls to the motherboard header? There are connections for the power switch, power LED, HDD LED, reset switch (optional). They must be connected in order for the motherboard to start. THe HDD and Power LED connections are polarity-based, so if you hook them upo backwards, their respective LED will not light. The HDD LED plug is usually red and white with the red being on the positive (+) terminal. The Power LED plug is usually green and white with the green wire going to the positive terminal. The power switch and reset switch wires can be connected either way as they are not polarized.

Front panel connections


I don't find the Front Panel header pinout online, nor do I have an MSI MS-5191 in the shop.

I would suggest using one the LED lights with two wires.
(3-wire is a dual color LED)

There are two rows of pins. Usually the Power On switch, Power On LED, and Speaker; are on the same row.
HarDDrive activity LED, and Reset Switch are on the opposite row.

Speaker has 4-pins designated for it. All the others use 2-pins.
(Unless the PWR ON LED is a dual color jobbie)

Touch two pins next to each other, in the same row; with the 2-wire LED.
Start with finding the Power On switch first.

Usually the top row 1st two pins are Power On LED (Light)
Next in line are the 2 pins for the Power On switch.
Bottom row 1st two pins are usually HarDDrive activity LED (light)
Next 2-pins are usually Reset switch.

May not apply to a motherboard old enough to use a Socket 7 processor socket.
There may be 18 to 20-pins.
Bear in mind that many are not used, and probably 4 are for an internal speaker, for hearing BIOS Beep Codes.
May be two separate Front Panel headers.

Once you find the two contact pins in the Front Panel header, for the Power On switch; I would put the Power On switch wires on.
The small pin connector on the wire/s, will keep you from accidentally touching these two pins again, when the computer is on.

Now you have the two pins for the Power On switch, and the computer is running; then keep touching 2-pins at a time with the LED. (Light Emitting Diode)

LED stays on? You have the Power On LED (Light) pins.
LED blinks? HarDDrive activity LED (light) pins.
Computer restarts? Reset switch pins.

Look for abbreviations near the pins in the Front panel header.

PWR, Pwr, Pwr On, Sw, and SW; are just some of the abbreviations for the Power On switch.

HDD LED, and HDD are two for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light)
(If it states HDD SW it is the Power On switch. Weird old way of marking)

RST, Reset, and RSW, are for the Reset Switch.
(Reset Button)

If you see 4 pins marked with a bracket ( [ -> Turn so it's horizontal), these are for the internal speaker.

Type MSI front panel connector in your search bar, and look at -> images. See if you can find an image of your MSI Front Panel header pinout.

You can bet MSI carried out that Front Panel header pinout, on other MSI motherboards, besides the MS-5191.

The MSI MS-5191 may have been a motherboard made by MSI, especially for a pre-built computer manufacturer, and not listed on their website as an OEM motherboard.
(Original Equipment Manufacturer)

Won't have the Front Panel header pinout, listed on MSI's support website. (Doesn't)
But you can bet there IS an OEM motherboard made by MSI, that the Front Panel header DOES match.

May be different expansion slots, or motherboard chipset, or whatever; but the same Front Panel header pinout.

Hi Greeneyedbj,

1. Three usb headers up to 6 additional devices, most casing can support 2-4 pins. 2. Front Audio Connector. 3. Front Panel Connector. Power Sw, Reset Sw, Powed Led, HDD Led

Branded casing has the following I/O connectors.
1. Esata 2. Firewire (Dont use the USB headers, firewire use a different pin-layout) 3. Chassis Intrusion Alarm Header.

Simple pinout help


Front Panel Header pin assignments as follows:

Pins 2 + 4 = Power Led

Pins 6 + 8 = Power Switch

Pins 12 + 14 = LAN Activity Led

Pins 1 + 3 = HDD Led

Pins 5 + 7 = Reset Switch

Pin 9 = +5v

Pins 11 + 13 = ODD Led

Pin formation is as below with no pin in position 10.

2 4 6 8 10 12 14

1 3 5 7 9 11 13

You will probably need to extend the Front Panel connector cable to reach the header pins on a replacement motherboard - I did this with 2 x N76HL 10 pin extension cables (male to female) from Maplin.

Gigabyte GA-8INXP Motherboard Problem- front connector pins


If the wires from the reset switch is white/blue the blue wire is positive, Hdd red/white red is positive power Green/white Green is positive etc. The wires on the speaker connector will be red/black/black/white - red is positive. The colored wire is always positive. On all GA mb's the positive connection is always towards the back of the MB and are marked with a + on the base of the pin as you can see on the photo. Hope this help.
