    HP motherboards specs:
    You might try here for a manual which might tell you what you need to know.
    BUT this is the one. Apart from much other useful information it contains mainboard pin-out information for connection to the case (I think these are pretty standard anyway)

    (The trouble is this is a motherboard made by Asus for HP. As such Asus do not provide any information about it whatsoever. HP information if you can find it is not sufficiently detailed)

    SOURCE: i had to change the motherboard as it failed

    Look at the front panel of the computer you will see the connections you have. Should be power, reset, power led, usb etc. These are connected to your current motherboard and most times all the connections will be labeled in the case, on the wire connector ends. IE the end that connects to the motherboard. The only exception to this is the usb ports, and they can be hooked up to new usb connectors on the motherboard. Also note, read i said READ the proper way to connect the usb to the motherboard, this is usually a one shot deal, get it wrong and you kill that usb connector.

    How to connect the front penal with motherboard

    To connect the front panel of your case with your motherboard, it is quite easy.

    If you have the motherboard manual, I will help you on connecting the cables to the motherboard.

    In summary, the pins or connectors for the front panel are on the same spot of the motherboard.
    If you don't have the manual, check on the motherboard, THere are like 8 or 10 pairs of pins which are labeled.

    The speaker cable is a 4 pin conector. See the speaker's pin on the motherboard.
    The Power cable will fit into a 2 pin connector.
    The HDD Cable as well
    The reset. too..

    The colored cable is always +, the black cable is always -
    The + usually goes on the first pin of the assigned connector.

    For example: motherboard connector is:

    The cables goes on the Jumpers area.

    You will see somthing like this:

    Hope that helps

    God Bless You!!

    Case switch connected to motherboard is messed up. i need a new switch for the case or the configuration for the pins on the motherboard to be able to use a new case/new switch

    The Power On switch is located inside the plastic Power On button assembly.

    It is a Momentary Contact Switch, and is named an ATX power on switch.
    This ATX Power On switch I have found fits many computers,

    The plastic front panel of a desktop computer is the Front Panel.
    The pin area on the motherboard, that the cables (Wires) from the Front Panel connect to, is the Front Panel header.

    Tell me the manufacturer name, and Model Number of the computer, or tell me the manufacturer name, and Model Number of the motherboard, and let me see if I can find a Pinout for it's Front Panel header.
    (What pins the cables connect to)

    Hello i need to know how to reconnect the computer case wires to a sr1703wm compaq motherboard


    The Compaq Presario SR1703WM desktop computer, uses an Asus A9AE-LE motherboard.
    HP/Compaq's name is AmberineM - GL6E

    1) I would like to start with the Front Panel wires.
    The Front panel, is the plastic front on your computer tower, where the Power On button, Power On LED, and so on is located.

    The Front Panel header is the connector on the motherboard, where the cables, (Wires), from the Front Panel connect to.

    Looking at the HP Support link above, I would like you to scroll down the page to the illustration of the motherboard, and the photo of the motherboard under the illustration.

    Looking at the illustration observe the bottom Right corner.
    F_PANEL1 indicates the Front Panel header.

    Note there are 4 pins going across the Top, and 5 pins going across the Bottom.

    Looking inside your computer, the motherboard will be located in a different position, compared to the illustration.

    The Front Panel header will be located Vertically, (Up, and down)

    Note that there is a twisted pair of Black, and Red wires.
    These wires form the Power On cable.
    They come directly from the Power on switch.

    There is a twisted pair of Yellow, and Black wires.
    These wires form the Harddrive Activity LED light cable.
    When the harddrive is active, this LED flashes.

    There is a twisted pair of Green, and Black wires.
    These wires form the Power On LED light cable.

    The wires, (Cables), should be in one Black connector.

    Looking at the Front Panel header in your computer, align the Black plastic connector's socket holes, with the pins sticking up out of the Front Panel header, on the motherboard.

    Note that the Front Panel header is rectangular in shape. There is 1 pin missing.
    The Black connector coming from the Front Panel of the computer, has one socket hole blocked off, to match.

    Align the four socket holes in the Black connector, to match the 4 pins sticking up out of the Front Panel header, on the motherboard.

    The other 5 socket holes in the Black connector, will match up to the 5 pins sticking up, automatically.

    Use care, and you may need a bright light to assist.
    These pins can be bent quite easily.
    (Also watch your fingers, as the ends of the pins are S-H-A-R-P!)

    2) Where it states CLRTC (CLPWD under it), is the Clear CMOS jumper.
    Suggest you leave it alone.

    3) Where it states F_ USB1, and F_USB2, is where the USB cables from the front of the computer connect to.

    (The USB ports on the front of the computer's Front Panel.
    F_USB1, and F_USB2 headers on the motherboard, are shown on the illustration to the Left, of the Front Panel header. F_PANEL1)

    The plastic connector on a USB cable coming from the Front Panel, has an orientation just like the Front Panel header cable does.

    There is 1 pin missing on the USB header on the motherboard.
    There is a blocked socket hole in the USB cable's connector.
    Align the connector to match the pins.

    Doesn't matter which USB cable from the Front Panel, that you connect to the USB headers on the motherboard.
    BIOS will find them, and assign an IRQ to each, once you turn the computer on.

    All you will see at a first glance is a series of thick Gray insulated cables, coming from the Front Panel of your computer.

    If you follow the cables by eye, you can see where the USB cables are connected to the back of the USB ports, on the Front Panel.

    You may, or may not, have to remove the Front Panel to see more clearly.

    Computer case open, look inside towards the Front Panel.
    There is a Green plastic tab towards the Top.

    This locking tab is depressed Towards the Inside of the computer, to START to unlock the Front Panel.

    Towards the bottom in the same plane, is a Black locking tab. This tab is pulled Towards the Outside of the computer.
    There is another Black plastic tab on the opposite side.

    At the Bottom are two more Black plastic locking tabs. These are depressed down, towards the Bottom of the computer case.
    One on one side, one on the opposite side.

    Start by depressing the plastic Green tab, and gently easing the Top of the Front Panel, slightly out.
    Then go to the two Black plastic locking tabs located towards the Middle, and depress them.

    Ease the top of the Front Panel out a little more.
    Finally go to the two Black plastic locking tabs located at the Bottom, and depress them.
    Ease the Front Panel off.

    Your computer's Front Panel may not have locking tabs located at the bottom.
    Just locking tabs located up from the bottom, more towards the middle)

    It's no picnic for your first time, but once you have done it, it becomes easy. (Ummm, Easier!)

    4) The Firewire (a1394) cable on the Front Panel, connects to the F_1394 header on the motherboard.
    In the motherboard illustration the F_1394 header is located to the Left, of PCI2

    Need any further cable connections, post in a Comment.

    Frontpanel sound

    By default, the pins labeled LINE OUT_R/BLINE_OUT_R and the pins LINE OUT_L/BLINE_OUT_L are shortened with jumper caps. You should remove the caps ONLY when you are connecting the front audio cable. So, if you are going to use the back panel, you should short the pins mentioned earlier. You cannot use the back panel and the front panel at the same time. If you want to use your headphones using the back panel, short the mentioned pins and connect your headphones to the green header of your back panel audio. If you want to use the front panel, take off the jumper caps and connect the front panel cable. Remember, if you connect the front panel audio cable, you won't be able to use the back panel. If you are going to use the back panel, don't forget to return the jumper caps. Usually the 5-6 and 9-10 pins. Hope this helps.
