Motherboard 9-Pin Front-Panel Connector

Q: Motherboard 9-Pin Front-Panel Connector

Hi Guys:

It's been a while since I've posted a question, however, this one is really bugging me. Recently, I've been putting together a lot of systems that have the 9-pin front-panel connection on the motherboard. The problem for me is that the ACPI/LED has only a
2-pin and most cases come with 3-pin cables. No mater which way I input the 3-pin cable, the front-panel LED light will not come on. Does anybody know what I'm referring? If you can Be of assistance, please give me some input.

Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Motherboard 9-Pin Front-Panel Connector

If the motherboard requires a 2 pin connector and the case manufacturer supplies a 3 pin connector just take the pins out of the connector and place them next to one another in the connector. There is a little tab on the connector you can lift up and slide the pin out. It's hard to explain here, but once you look at it closely you will see what I mean.

I am attempting to transfer the motherboard of my h50-50 to a different case.  I am doing this in order to make room for a much larger video card and psu that simply will not fit in the Lenovo case.  I have run into a bit of difficulty with the 'Front panel connector'.  If you look in the 'Lenovo H50 SeriesHardware Maintenance Manual' it is on page 28 (Lenovo H50-50).  I have been trying to find the specs on what each pin is for but have been unable to find such information.  Could someone please direct me to where I can find such information or could you please provide me with the details?  Specifically I am looking for the power switch pin(s), hdd activity pin(s) etc. thanks

A:H50-50 motherboard Front panel connector pin layout

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
There is no documentation that I am aware of that show the pinouts of the various connectors on your motherboard.  I would just use an Ohm meter on your old H50-50 case and trace wires on the old front panel plug.  Once you know how the old plug was configured you will know the pin assignments on the motherboard.

Hi, I just purchased a Gigabyte UD3R motherboard. My computer case is at least 6 years old (don't know make) and many of the connectors don't match description to motherboard.

Cables for Audio:

RETURN L (Blue)

RETURN R (White)

SPKOUT L (White)

SPKOUT R (Green)

GROUND (Black)

MIC BIAS (Yellow)

MIC-IN (Pink)
My case doesn't provide an HD audio module so I need to set it up for AC'97 functionality. The pin set up is as follows
Pin 1 - MIC

Pin 2 - GND

Pin 3 - MIC Power

Pin 4 - NC

Pin 5 - Line Out (R)

Pin 6 - NC

Pin 7 - NC

Pin 8 - No Pin

Pin 9 - Line Out (L)

Pin 10 - NC
Really appreciate the help. Thanks!
 

A:Solved: New Motherboard + Front Panel Connector Confusion

Most probably should work by:
MIC-IN to pin 1,
MIC BIAS to pin 3,
GROUND to pin 2,
SPKOUT R to pin 5,
RETURN R to pin 6,
SPKOUT L to pin 9,
RETURN L to pin 10.

Please don't mark threads solved if they aren't, less people will wander to the thread if it looks like no further help is needed.

I just put in a Soyo P4I865PE Plus Dragon 2 into a POWMAX case. I had another Soyo Dragon P4X400-8235 mobo that had fried, and I'm replacing it.
What the mobo connector pins for the front panel require are the HDD LED, ACPI LED, PWRBT, RESET, POWER LED, KEY LOCK, SPEAKER.

My case has the SPEAKER, THE RESET, and the HDD LED, plus a POWER SW, and
one cable with
mic-bias
spkout r
spkout l
Return R
Return L

and 2 cables each with
+vcc
+D
-D
grounds.

So I have the SPEAKER, THE HDD LED and the RESET pins connected.

Right now I'm not getting any power. I suspect that it's because the POWER LED hasn't been hooked up. I don't know if hooking the POWER SW to the POWER LED will do any good--or any harm. Any suggestions, or do I need a different case?

Thanks for any suggestions, tips, or answers.

I have the mothermoard that comes with the TinkCentre E93 Desktop and I have since upgraded my computer case to something bigger and better looking. I managed to get everything connected besides the front panel connectors which are very important. The ThinkCentre motherboard is a bit weird in its layout and the ThinkCentre case had a single connector that connects into this pinout however, my new case has single connectors instead of a single 13 pin + 1 blank connector. My case has a connector which consists of a total of 9 pins.It would've been simple if the board had a marking indicating what each pinout is for and which is positive and negative but unfortunately there isn't any of  that. At the moment I can't seem to find any information at all with regard to how I should connect this. I would like to get opinions with regards to which pin goes where. This is the full specs of the desktop

A:Front Panel Audio connector help needed

Your front panel connections aren't odd, but they are old. They are for the AC97 standard.

Set your onbaord audio to AC97 in the BIOS set-up.

The AC97 pinouts are here:

Desktop Boards — Front panel audio header pinouts

1 Mic In
2 Ground
3 Mic Bias
5 Spkout R
9 Spkout L

It looks like the onboard audio doesn't support the Return lines.

There should only be one Spkout L connector. It's the white (not gray) one.

Have you really been trying to figure this out for 5 months? Yikes.

If these connections cause your PC to go up in a fireball, don't blame me.

Hello! Recently, I transferred my Dell Motherboard (From an Inspiron 560) to a new Rosewill Challenger-S case. All of that went fine and dandy but now I'm facing another problem: I don't quite know where to plug up the cables from the case's front panel (power switch, reset switch, HDD LED). I found a port on my motherboard labeled "Front Panel" which matches the ports, but one is missing like normal front panel connectors, and the cables only take up 6 out of the 9 pins. So the real question is, where do you plug up the cables, or do you even put them in that spot?

A:Motherboard Front Panel

This appears to use a standard Intel front panel pinout.

Looking at the picture pin #1 is the upper right pin in the graphic. On that side you will only use 4 pins. They are pin 1, 3, 5 and 7

Only the bottom row of pins you will also only use 4 pins. These are pins 2, 4, 6, & 8.

Pin 1 & 3 are HDD actively LED

Pins 5 & 7 are the Reset switch

Pin 9 is a No Connect

Pins 2 & 4 are Power LED

Pins 6 & 8 are On/Off Power Switch

Pin #9 should be Blank

Normally;

(Reset Switch) Pin 5 is Negative, pin 7 is Positive

(On/OFF Power Switch) Pin 6 is Positive, pin 8 is Negative

If the Power LED and the HDD LED don't work properly, just turn the KK connector plug 180°

I have installed a new motherboard into my computer and have everything connected with the exception of the HDD LED, Power SW and Reset SW. For the life of me I cannot figure out where they go. The instructions are useful to the point. It shows that the 9 pins (4 on top, 5 on the bottom) but doesn't provide any instruction on which cord attaches to where. All the above connections (HDD LED, Power SW, Reset SW) consist of 2 pins. There are different colors on the pins (2 red, 2 orange, 2 green, 2 blue, 1 yellow) and only the orange/red have the positive/negative marked on them. So how do I know what connections go where?

If it matters the Power SW is Black/White, the Reset SW is Green/White and the HDD LED is Red/White.

Didn't this motherboard come out of an Acer PC? If so, you would have to look for the overall manual that came with the PC which might show the front panel pin layout. Whether there is a separate motherboard manual, I don't know. If you know the model of the Acer PC you could possibly go to the Acer website and download a manual from there.

If this is a motherboard you bought on Ebay or something, you could go back to the seller and ask them what model it came from.

The front panel switches of my (old) case when attached to the slots on the motherboard fail.
When all is plugged in and switched on, PC fails to turn on. The F/P switches are: | M/B SW | HD LED | Power LED +/- | RESET SW.

And I have tried the M/B SW (green and black cable) is all the available slots on the motherboard and still it doesn't switch on the computer. At first I thought it was because my PSU was only 400W and read in the manual somewhere about it needing at least 500W so I bought a 620W one and still it doesn't work.

The mobo is: GIGABYTE GA-H61M-S2PV GEN3 Intel H61 (REV B3)

Any ideas/solutions appreciated?

Thanks

You can get the motherboard manual from the manufacturers website. See here> http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4065#manual

The pinout and where the cables connect will be covered in the manual. You can test the motherboard by simply connecting the two pins (the power switch pins) with a metal object (ie: screwdriver, paperclip, scrap of wire, etc.).

Hi all,
I had my power supply fry and replaced it with a new box. I have an Intel fw82371eb SL37M motherboard. I am trying to hook up the 5 front panel cords to it. I've been searching for a manual and I can't find it on any sites. I appologize for the incorrect wording. I'm not good with computer terminology. The manuals that I have seen have a single row of pins. The pins on my board are in two rows. Back row with 8 pins and 7 in the front row with the second to the left missing a pin. I need to hook up the HDD LED, POWER SW, RESET SW, SPEAKER, AND POWER LED. Does anyone know of a link to a manual or can you tell me how to hook these cords up? Thank you in advance!! If you need more info let me know....

I want to connect a front panel HD audio to my computers but not sure what goes where on the motherboard headers. Just to clarify two completely different systems no connection apart from network.
The front panel lines are Bass, Centre, Gnd, Rear-R, Rear-L, Front-R, Front-L, Mic ?L & Mic-R. No problems with Gnd, but that leaves the other lines.
The motherboard headers are:
On the Gigabyte motherboard the 2 mic and gnd are obvious but what lines do the ACZ_Det , FAudio_JD & Line2 L & R go to.
On the ASUS motherboard Port1 L & R, Port2 L & R, Sense_Send, Presence#, Sense1_Retur and Sense2_Retur.
Oh where is the naming convention for these things

Hi Bursal, welcome to 7F!

Since you failed to fill out your System Specs, except that you are working with Gigabyte, and Asus MB's it took me a while to at least get you to where you need to go to find the information you are looking for.

For Gigabyte go to: GIGABYTE - Support & Downloads - Downloads - Motherboard
You will see that there are already a list of MB's, and you can download their manuals there, but if you don't want to go through at least 6pages I suggest you do the search.

To give you a look at what I found, and make no mistake. I have no idea if this is your board.
These pixs are from a GA-P41T-D3P User's Manual:
Descriptions to all the connections are below each diagram.

For the Asus it is a little different.
Go to: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download
From there you can either automatically detect your MB or manually drill down for the manual of your board.

You already have the information you seek if you have the manuals to these boards

Hello,
i just received my new motherboard, asus a8n, and i;m trying to connect my case's front usb panel with the motherboard.
The motherboard's pins are labelled:
- - - - - - - - - - - - -
| +5v P6- P6+ GND NC |
| +5v P5- P5+ GND |
- - - - - - - - - - - - -

As you can see, the first row has 5 pins, while the bottom one only 4.

My case's front panel has 8 pins, labelled
Power
Power
D2+
D2-
Gnd
Gnd
D3+
D3-

As you can understand, the pins of the panel are not grouped together.
Where must each usb panel pin go on the motherboard?
 

A:motherboard to usb front panel pins

My guess is that the matches are:

+5v ----> power
+5v ----> power
p5- ----> d2-
p5+ ----> d2+
p6- ----> d3-
p6+ ----> d3+
gnd ----> ground
gnd ----> ground
NC ----> unmatched

note that the p5+-,p6+- pins on the two other usb ports on the motherboard, have other names.ie one has p7-,p7+,p8-,p8+ and the other has p9-,p9+,p10-,p10+

Is my assumption correct? if yes, why is NC alone?

Hi all.
Im in need of some help with a motherboard connectors.
I just got a old motherboard and cpu to build a second system for my son to use, but the front panel connectors don't have any kind of code and I don't have the manuals.
The only thing I can read on the MB is bib75aha . I did a lot of search on Google and I found one selling on eBay, but nothing else.
Don't even know who made it.
The connectors are identified as jpanel1 and have numbers from 1 to 10. Anyone have any idea about this?
The board is similar to this one, I don't have a pic of it now
Thanks

OK well after years of installing just about every bit of hardware possible in various flavours of computers I finally decided to build a new one from the ground up. So here I am with my nice new case wich has front panel mic and audio out sockets, and some usb ports, and a motherboard which has pins to fit them. Only trouble is the labelling on the leads from the front panel, and the labelling on the pins on the mobo don't quite match up.
Here's what I've got on the mobo for the audio connections:
(forgive the 'code' tags, I wanted this monospaced and courier was parsing multiple spaces as one space)
Code:

aud_mic aud_gnd
aud_mic_bias aud_vcc
aud_fpout_r aud_ret_r
nc key
aud_frout_l aud_ret_l

And from the front panel I have two leads, one with mic connections, one with audio connections, labelled as follows:
Mic Cable
.mic-power
.mic-in
.ground

audio cable
.l-ret
.r-ret
.l-out
.r-out
.ground
Now some of these match up fairly obviously, the l and r in and out for instance... and I think vcc is the mic- power.. but there's two grounds... and what about the NC and KEY pins on the nmobo, does anything go there?
Here's how I;ve connected some at the moment:
Code:

Mic Cable | Mobo pins
.mic-power | .aud_vcc
.mic-in | .aud_mic
.ground | .aud_gnd
|
audio cable |
.l-ret | .aud_ret_l
.r-ret | .aud_ret_r
.l-out | .aud_out_l
.r-out | .aud_out_r ... Read more

What you have so far looks right. The NC is no connection. The Key may be for some kind of switch on a mike(not sure). I do not see a ground on the audio cable hooked up. You may want to check that.

This has been a tough task for many of us... Just keep trying connections. You might get lucky

One thing,
with the wires you have coming from the front panel you have to use the AC97 configuration only

3 Mic power
4 R-out R-ret

Thanks in advance,

A:Configure front panel in zebronics motherboard

Hi,

According to Intel, these are your front panel connectors for your motherboard:

Intel? Desktop Boards use a 9-pin chassis front panel header.
And according to Zebronics: Hardware Installation - Zebronics - Always Ahead - Largest Range of Peripherals



So I am unsure as to your pins on the cabinet, are these not for rear?
Can you provide a Screenshot or layout?

1. GND
2,MIC in
3 Mic power
4 R-out R-ret
5 L-out L-ret.


Cheers

Hi Everyone:

Hope all is going well for all of you.

Recently, a friend gave me a case with a motherboard in it from a Compaq EVO W4000 computer, (not the original case.)

I am trying to get it to work but I don't have a manual or any information about how to hook up the front panel power connectors or set up the CMOS.

I would greatly appreciate it if someone knows how to set up the front panel pins and could send that to me along with the CMOS set up.

Thanks for your assistance with this problem and I look forward to your quick replies.

Regards.

I was replacing the SATA plug for my second hard drive and unknowingly unplugged all four plugs to the front panel controls. I have no idea what the make of the computer case is. My system is WinXP sp2. I have the duel core Pentium 4 chip and have loaded 2 gigs of ram. I have the ATI X800 video card and sound is on board Realtek. I have 300 gig hard drive as C: and 180 gig hard drive as D: I also have Pioneer DVD/CD read/write and NEC DVD/CD read/write.
When this occurred I first tried to plug the wires back in. Using the two LED plugs but no matter what position I plugged them into, white wire to pin 2 and green to pin 4 or reverse, and HLED plug white to pin 1 and red to pin 3 or reverse, I get no power to the front panel.
The digital readout shows F9. Also as a side note I remember there are two lights at the lower right side of the motherboard one green and to the right of it is a red light. I noted the red light does not come on at startup. Any help will be greatly appreciated. bb

I have an FIC SD11 motherboard with an Athlon 550MHz processor. I want to hook the front panel USB ports to the motherboard. I was able to find the USB pins on the motherboard for connecting the front panel cables but the motherboard does not give any indication as to what each pin is. The power panel connections the motherboard on the other hand are clearly labeled.

Does anybody have a link or a drawing of an SD11 motherboard that shows what each individual pin for the USB connections are so I can connect the cables from the front panel? I've found many pictures of the board by searching for "sd11" but none show a simple drawing which breaks down each USB pin.
