The reset switch goes on pins 5 and 7, the power switch goes on pins 6 and 8, the hard drive led is on pins 1(+) and 3(-), the message led is on pins 2(+) and 4(-).

    In this situation, you said,"socket", but, depending on the case you have it in, you may have to pull each wire from the socket and plug them individually. To remove them from the socket, use a very small jeweler's screwdriver and push into the socket from the back beside each wire, unlocking the tab and pulling the wire at the same time, will release them one by one. When they are all free, you can follow them by hand to see which goes to the switches and which goes to the leds.

    Tell them where the individual pins are in the Front Panel header. Tell them where Pin 1 is, and how to find the other pins.

    If you have the board facing correctly with the processor up top, the header will be at the bottom right corner beside the white 3pin sytem fan plug. It should have odd numbers on one side in a row and the even numbers on the other side in a row. The spot where a pin is missing is known as the key. It is number 10, therefore pin 1 is all the way left on bottom. 2 is above it.

Is it an ECS PM800-M2 motherboard?

Uses a VIA motherboard chipset, (VIA PM800 / Northbridge chip, and VIA VT8237 / Southbridge chip)

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=453&MenuID=24&LanID=0

If so suggest you download the Motherboard User Manual.
Click on the - Download - tab.
(Features / Specification / Download / Cerification / FAQ / etc)

Click on the blue - Manual
(Driver / BIOS / Manual)

Go to the Bottom file -
English manual for PM800-M2
Release Date: 2004/5/3

To the Right of - Download - click on the country name nearest yours.
(Yeah, I know. Europe is not a country, it's a continent)

A small window will come up -
Opening PM800-M2_10.zip

Make SURE there is a Green dot in the small circle, to the left of Save File.
IF not; click in the empty circle to the left of Save File.
No go below in the window, and click on OK.

A small download window will come up.
Allow the file to fully download, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.
In the next small window go to the far left, and click on -
Extract all files.

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

[DO NOT change anything in the second small window.
Windows knows where to put the file.
Just click on Next ]

In the last small window, there will be a red Adobe PDF icon, and the file name next to it.
DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

You are now looking at a PDF file version, of the Motherboard Manual.

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

If you cannot figure out the Front Panel header pinout, post back in a Comment.

joecoolvette

Power supply diagram for ht 2000 motherboard

1) Uses one 24-pin ATX main power cable.

Motherboard installed in computer case, the motherboard connector for the 24-pin ATX main power cable; is to the Right of the Blue IDE (PATA) connector.
(Right side of motherboard)

General example. Note that color does NOT matter of connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24


2) Uses one 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

Motherboard installed in computer case, the whitish square 4-socket hole connector, to the Bottom/Left corner of the Processor socket; is the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable's motherboard connector.

General example. Note color does NOT matter of connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

THAT, would be considered a Power Supply diagram of the motherboard.

They are the only two power cables that plug into the motherboard.

The front of your desktop computer is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

Power On switch, Power On LED, (Light Emitting Diode), Harddrive activity LED, and a Reset switch IF used.

I need the wiring chart for a mcp61pm-am motherboard


Gateway Support > Gateway MCP61PM-AM motherboard,

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Shared/4006200R/4006200Rnv.shtml

Click on - Product Views

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front panel go to, is the Front panel header.

If you need the pinout for the Front Panel header, click on -
S- Front Panel Connector

Looking at the different colors on the Front Panel header, and matching pin numbering;
Pin 2 = Orange with Yellow + sign.
Pin 4 is solid Orange.
Pin 6 is Green.
Pin 8 is Green
There is NO Pin 10.

Pin 1 is Red with a Yellow + sign.
Pin 3 is solid Red
Pin 5 is Blue
Pin 7 is Blue
Pin 9 is solid Yellow.

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 the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

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

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. Reserved for +5 Volts, and factory use.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED. (Light)
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR ON LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

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

F) There is No Pin 10. Just a blank spot. (Yellow)

Click on B - Processor Core Power, for the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable connector, location on the motherboard.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

[ Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right;
the square white 4-socket hole connector, is straight over to the left, from the bottom left corner of the Processor socket ]

On the U - Intrusion Switch Connector?
I believe the style of switch used, is if it is open, then the computer will not work.
Therefore connect a small wire to those two pins.
(Same thing as the switch is Closed)

Need Molex female metal terminals?

http://www.molex.com/molex/products/datasheet.jsp?part=active/0002081202_CRIMP_TERMINALS.xml&channel=Products&Lang=en-US

Could I be wrong about how the switch works? Yes.
Could be the alternate style where the switch is open, and removing the computer case cover, closes it.
In this case do not connect a jumper wire.

All the other wiring connections are shown.
Have a specific question on the wiring? Post back in a Comment.

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.

How to connect front pannel


How about a picture? Pg. 46 in your manual.
Need manual, download from Intel. (Click on link).
http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/RC440BX/sb/CS-013608.htm

Intel RC440BX Specification
Pg. 46
Basic rules case wiring. The color black is considered ground -. Power wires + can be any other color including stripped wires. (This is standard but case Mfg change to their own specification).

Pin 1 is + power for LED Hard drive green LED, Pin 2 is -/ground for Hard drive LED.
(Pin 3 is + power for LED Hard drive yellow LED, Pin 4 is -/ground for Hard drive LED).(See more options on pg. 47).
Pin 5 is + power for case On/off button, Pin 6 is -/ground On/off button.
Pin 7 is + power for Reset Switch, Pin 8 is -/ground for Reset Switch.
Once positive & negative pins has been located each connector follows in suit.

The Intel RC440BX front case connector is in an odd location.
The user will find it hard to connect front case LED connectors while the board in installed into the case.

Good Luck!
