Front panel pinout connections for ASUS A8M2N-LA (NodusM3


The Asus A8M2N-LA motherboard was made SPECIAL for HP.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00757531&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=3339286

As such Asus has no info on it.

Looking at the second link posted (Motherboard Specifications), scroll down to the bottom, and click right on - Motherboard Layout

Motherboard layout shown (Direction), is the same as is installed in your computer; Processor to the Top, white PCI slots to the Bottom, Ram Memory to the Right.

The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the cables (Wires) go to from the Front Panel, is the Front Panel header.

Abbreviated F_PANEL 1, at the bottom right corner of the motherboard, is the Front Panel header.

There are 9 contact pins. Two rows.
Across the Top row they are numbered ODD.
Across the Bottom row they are numbered EVEN.

Coming from the Left side of the motherboard towards the right side, on the Top row;
Pins 1, 3, 5, and 7

Coming from the Left side of the motherboard towards the right side, on the Bottom row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire. ( + )
If the HDD LED is dim when operating, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive wire.

D) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

Photo of the Asus M2N78-LA motherboard,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c01421635&dlc=en

This photo also shows the orientation (Direction), that the motherboard is sitting in a computer case.

To the very bottom right is the Front Panel header.

The front plastic panel of the computer is the Front Panel.

The area of pins on the motherboard that the cables, (Wires) from the Front Panel connect to, is the Front Panel header. ( F_PANEL )

The Front Panel header, is the black rectangular shaped plastic block, that is sitting vertically on the motherboard.

Has two columns of pins.
4 on the left side, 5 on the right side. Makes it look as though there is a pin missing, at the top left corner.

I'm going to number the pins.

Pins on the Left side starting at the Top, going down;

Pins 1, 3, 5, and 7.

Pins on the Right side starting at the Top, going down,

Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10.


A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the Power On switch. (Power On button)

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 7 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
(If the LED light is dim, reverse the wires around)

C) Pins 4 and 6 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used. (Reset button)

D) Pins 8 and 10 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
Pin 10 is for the Positive wire. ( + )
(If the HDD LED light is dim when operating, switch the wires around)

Pin 2 at the top Right is NOT used. (NC. Not Connected)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
I am looking at a motherboard manual in PDF file form, for the Asus M2N78-LA motherboard.

I DISCONECTED ALL MY CABLE SO NOW I CAN'T ABLE TO CONNECT THE WIRE BECAUSE I LOT MY BOARD CHART


it is easy...

remember this your motherboard is like a children play house red for red, square for square.. if it is not compatible for the socket it will never be placed well..

you need to connect the following..

first your main power supply to your motherboard

it is very easy to see.. it is a group of maybe 16 wires in a plastic connector..you will connect it to your motherboard..

your processor power is a four wired in plastic connector but it is square in shape..

note: take a good look in each connector they have squares cirlce, etc shapes in each wires so don't force it to connect if it is hard to it means it is not for that socket..

this is the turning point..

your power button, reset button, pw LED, HDD LED,

maybe you know where it is placed,
but note the sequence.. pw button, reset, pw led,hdd led,

if not you can try to short the pins of *********** board so that you will know where the power button will be placed...

your usb and internal speaker has their own pins....

note: take a good look to your motherboard before you connect it, it may cause you some trouble..

take a look at the + ,- signs that is encrypted in the motherboard...

you have to the red wire is fore the posite and the black is negative..

i know it is compose of four wires but they are in one socket right...

your hdd connect it i know you know that how..

that's all..

Aug 28, 2009 - The pin layout on the MB are color coded. There is green, orange, pink, and blue. I'll start with the green pins 2 and 4 these are for the power led wires, bottom pin #2 is the + pin (your green wire). Pin #4 is - (your white wire). Now the orange pins, pins 1 and 3 these are for the HDD led. The bottom pin #1 is the HDD + pin (your red wire). Pin #3 is the HDD - (your white wire). Now the pink pins, 6 and 8 these are for the power switch. Pin #6 is the + pin (your orange wire). Pin #8 is the - pin (your white wire). Now the blue pins, 5 and 7 these are for the reset switch.

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.

Hi

The wires that read +5 -d +d and ground those are USB connectors each usb connector will have 4 wires, +5 -d +d and ground so that goes to usb pins.

The sw must be power switch
The HDD led is the load light
Reset is the reset button
Power led is the front power light
SPK is the speaker / beeper.

Can you tell me the brand and model of the motherboard? They are documented in the user manual. but generally in the bottom right corner of the motherboard you have the connectors for the leds and buttons, its all written into the motherboard with small white text. but I can get clear instructions from the user manual for you.

You can look for the motherboard details between the expansion slots and between the cpu and memory.

Thanks,
Ekse

I need to know the sequence on how to connect my Power LED, Reset Switch, HDD LED, and M/B Switch up correctly. I have an MS-7142 VER:1 Can you help me?


Hi carlmtclem, your not alone when it comes to hooking up the right led connector to the MSI MB. Firstly, you need to know what wire color is positive & which is negative. Most commonly the color white is ground/negative. Wire colors do vary from case to case. So look at your case led wires. Which ever color is common for each 2-pin connector, is negative. (Except the speaker wire).
All other colors are positive.
(The speaker wire color for negative is usually black & red is positive).
Your MSI board has two separate sets of pins.
JFP2 is used for the speaker only. Do not connect the power led there.

4214cb1.jpg
Pin one for JFP1 is shown in the manual. Pin 1 is positive & pin 3 is negitive for the HDD-LED, ECT.

Thats it.
Need more information?
Post here.
Good luck carlmtclem!
Thank you for using fixya.

hdd rst N/C

translated this is top row left to right ...... power led, power switch no connection

Bottom row is left to right........ hard drive, reset, no connection

Note: not all computer cases have a reset button, also the connectors for power led and hard drive produce a light, if the light does not show, power off the pc swithc the cable rooun 180deg on the connector pins and reconnect.

Power switch


You could try searching for the manual for the motherboard, I have the same problem every time I disconnect a motherboard.

Sometimes it is printed on the motherboard in dead small writing which wire goes where.

Also usually motherboard manufacturers follow the "unofficial" standard io connectors.

+PLED -PLED +PSW -PSW NC NC NC NC
+HDD -HDD -RST +RST +SPK NC NC -SPK

Key:

PLED = Power LED/Message LED
HDD = Hard Drive LED
RST = Reset Switch
PSW = Power Switch
SPK = Speaker
NC = Not connected (sometimes not even there)

Note quite often the Reset switch is the reverse of everything else! (i.e. on most if the + is on the right the + is on the left for the Reset

The USB ones usually always follow the following standard

VCC -DATA +DATA GND NC (USB1)
VCC -DATA +DATA GND NC (USB2)

And usually one of the NC pins is no pin as some USB cables have that pin blanked out to ensure you connect them the right way. Note also with USB you start with the VCC then you go straight to negative data, then positive, then ground (again the - and + data bits, like the reset are in reverse of normal reading - the are right to left, not left to right!)

Finally if your not sure which cable is + and which is - the - ones are normally either black or white (most of them are white, except the speaker ones which are black - I presume that goes back to the colour scheme of red and black for positive and negative in audio equipment) and the + ones are normally some colour.
