My 500W powered aspire alienware case

I am having problems getting my panel leds wired up. My ECS MB doesn't list the configuration from my case and the plugs differ--the old 3 wire power led plug is now a 2 wire with the leads spread apart--not together.

Hi, this can be a common problem, get a small set of side cutters and gently split the plugs to seperate each one. then plug the 2 you need on to the board, turn them sideways so they do not interfere with each other. when pluged on the board you may need to swap them around till they work. Dont worry if you get them the wrong way around you will not do any harm. note there are no adaptors for these connections. Regards mistyman

WIRING CONNECTION

Hi,
You'll need to download the manual for you're ECS P4VMM2, MB.
If you no longer have it.
Left click on the link provided by ECS below to open;
http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/ECSSearch.aspx?menuid=0&lanid=9&keyword=P4VMM2
There are many version for the P4VMM2 MB. Look closely on you're MB for the correct revision. There are slight differences between each revision. You will also need to download Adobe reader to view the manual. If you do not have Adobe reader installed click on the link to download and install Adobe. (Adobe is free).
http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
The most important connections start on page 11 to page 14. For front panel wire connections. Hard disk drive LED, Power LED, Reset LED ECT, keep in mind which wire color is ground & which wire color is positive. You'll find 1 common color for each jumper. This common colored wire will be used for ground. The other colored wires will be used as positive. (Execpt internal speaker). Internal speakers normally use the color red for positive and black for negative.
Just follow the manual and you'll find it is not very tough.
If you get confused or lost feel free to post questions.

Cheers'
Mike

Instructions on atx case wiring to motherboard

Assuming that the computer is laying down on it's right side, and you are viewing the F panel (the front panel header) from the right side of the motherboard (the bottom of the computer), pin 1 is on the bottom left of the F panel, pin 2 is on the top left, pin 9 is on the lower right, and pin 10 is on the top right (no actual pin)...

1 HD_LED_P Hard disk LED (+) 2 FP PWR/SLP *MSG LED (+)
3 HD_LED_N Hard disk LED (-)
5 RST_SW_N Reset Switch (-)
7 RST_SW_P Reset Switch (+)
9 RSVD Reserved
4 FP PWR/SLP *MSG LED (-)
6 PWR_SW_P Power Switch (+)
8 PWR_SW_N Power Switch (-)
10 Key No pin

Usually the wires and the pins are color coded, (the colored ones being positive.) Sometimes the connections are written in very small abbreviations on the motherboard.

ECS 755 A2 motherboard problems

Make sure you have the correct front panel header connected correctly to the case wires. Open you're manual to page 12 under the English section. There you'll find a picture of the front panel header & how to connect the case's LED's to the motherboard.
If you no longer have the manual you can download it from ECS at this link.
http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=381&DetailName=Manual&MenuID=1&LanID=0
Chances are you may have the wire's connect backwards. (Positive + connected to the negative - ECT).
Example, pin 1 is the + for hard disk drive & pin 3 is - for the hard disk drive. Cases vary on wire colors, normally if each connector has a common colored wire (solid color) that common wire would be the negative. Stripped wires are negative. Other cases use white colored wires as negative & colored wires as positive. As far as you not receiving any display. Try removing the AGP card & clean the copper contacts. Clean with alcohol.
Place a couple drops onto a cotton swab & clean the copper, both sides. Blow out the AGP slot with canned air. Re-check all connections, power & data cables before closing the case. Power on the system & check the front led's for operation.
If you still fail to get display, re-check the connection from the monitor to the case. Try you're monitor on another system. If good than you're video card could be bad. You're motherboard can run an 8x/4x speed AGP 1.5volt (only) graphics card.

Good luck zeratu_l !

Wiring a P4M80-M4 mother board

You can download the manual for the motherboard here, just click on the "manual" link:

http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en-us/mb/driver.php?S_ID=246

This will list the front panel connections, which are 2 pins. Each of the jumpers, what you are calling clips, will connect two of the pins. Most cases have the jumpers labeled, i.e. power, reset, etc. But if they are not, it is usually: red/white = HDD led; green/white = power led; red/black = speaker; black/green = power switch; and black/white = reset. But your case may use a different wiring spec, but should list somewhere which wire is for which function.
