I removed the front panel wires from the F_PANEL connections on the Gigabyte mother board on my PS 8250. Is there a wiring diagram or something available to use so I can get the wires connected back to where they were?

Re: front panel wiring
Maybe we can wing it if you can send an image of the motherboard closeup on the F_PANEL connections and the wires from the front panel itself, or
get the specific motherboard model during POST so we can try getting URL of manual.
In some instances, the front panel wires are:
Green wire, power on green light +, white wire is power on green light -;
Red & Black, speaker;
Red & white - HDD red activity light indicator where red is HDD + & white is HDD -;
Orange & white - Reset
Black & White - power on
Post back so we can figure things out. Good luck and kind regards.

"The front panel audio header on an Intel® Desktop Board lets you connect to a front panel audio module built into a system chassis. This document describes the header pin-out configuration for connecting a chassis with Intel® High Definition Audio (HD Audio) or AC'97 audio. Note
HD Audio headers are pin-compatible with AC'97 chassis and connectors.
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.
unfortunately the wiring color for computer cases are not standard. so blue and white does not mean much. you need to look at the connection on the tip of the wire to see if it is labeled so you can locate the corresponding connection point on the mother board. Gigabyte motherboards have a very good step by step discretion of all connections.
if it is not labeled then you need to oped the case front panel and see what the other end of this pair of wires is connected to.
You can download the manual for your motherboard from Gigabyte here. This will show you the pinout for the front panel connector. If there are no marked connectors on the wires from the front panel, you'll need to remove the panel and follow the wires back to the switches and LEDs. It's usually not difficult to do this as the panel is normally held on with a few screws or simply snaps onto the case.
Good luck! Hope this has helped you, and thanks for using Fixya!
the power switch connector goes vertically where it says pw on the pins at the bottom right of the board. there is a diagram in the user manual on page 23. you can download the manual fro their website.
