Front usb connector problem

Q: Front usb connector problem

I have just changed my system from a large case to a matx case, but used all the part except the mainboard. Changed from a Asus P6T Deluxe to a Asus Rampage Gene II.

Now I thought I might have to reinstall windows, but as luck would have it, it booted straight into windows with no other problem except I had to register windows.

It was only when I tried plugging in a usb memory stick into the front of the case that I got a bsod. If I plug it into one of the back usb ports it works. So I checked to see if the cable was attached correctly on the internal header and again it was.

So could this be down to windows or a hardware problem?

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.)

How to connect usb front connector on the Mother Board, have +vcc, +d,
-d, and ground.

Thanks!!
 

A:front usb connector

This would depend on your motherboard, if you dont have the manual, download it from the mfg web site, and it should tell you how to connect them.

Here's a pretty good tutorial I found that explains it. It's probably not exactly as your setup but it should be close enough for you to get a good idea of what to do. I think you are probably interested in the "Front USB via a Port to Header connection" section.

Good luck.

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.

My motherboard is a model Ms-6330 Ver: 2.1 (Microstar) but it also has the gateway part number 2512595. I am currently relocating this motherboard to a brand new case that I just bought and I ran into a problem. The front panel connectors (power switch, led, hdd led, etc) go onto the motherboard in a certain area where there are 15 pins. Unfortunately I have no idea which connectors connect to which pins. Can someone help me? (Maybe someone with the same motherboard/problem). All I need is a way to identify the pins and make sure I don't like accidently fry my motherboard. Thanks a lot! -Andrew C.

Hi,
For starters, have you checked your manual? Also, look on the m/b...in really tiny abbreviated letters you should be able to see where these go (you may see "pw switch"...."HDD ACT"........i know when i was installing my connectors, i got most of them wrong..but dont worry..no frying of the motherboard.....if the connector is in the right place but no light from the LED..try reversing the cable........the easiest cables to place are the pw switch and the reset..as you can test these easily....good luck

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.
 

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 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

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.

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?

But then when I connected the rest to what I thought was correct, I got sound out of my left speaker only.

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.

Recently Swapped out my old enermax PSU for a new one. Plugged everything back in. I inadvertenly disconnected a a twin wire two prong cable which connects to the hinge of thefront door of the tower. It is tied into the other connectors for the system pannel(20 pin) connector on the motherboard. However i do not know where it plugs in?

I would not normally care but the PC will not power up with the new PSU. All i am getting is the standby power LED on the motherboard to light up. I have connected the two fans to the same cables as the EZ_plug( which i just use a ordinary four prong connector). The DVD and CD-R drives use the same power cable. The HDD i have using a SATA power connector. Finally the floppy drive just uses a standard connector with nothing else on the other 12v connectors. The motherboard uses a ATX connector, EZ_plug and 24 pin connector.
I just realised i connedted the PSU up incorrectly. I used an EZ_plug with the ATX connection which i should not do with a Geforce 7800 GT on Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe(ez-plug should only be used with two cards). I also forgot to connect the six prong connector on the video card. Would this earlier omission on my part have damaged the mobo? I rectified and still no change?

I am hoping the inital problems with with system resets, usb connections and damaged file segments on HDD were to do with either the PSU or HDD. I hope the mobo is unaffected( i hope so the warranty ends in january). Any suggestions to ascertain if i need to check anything else would be helpful?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833127063

I am confused whether or not the antenna or cable will screw onto my wireless adapter card.

My wireless Adapter card has a SMA connector on it with the screw wedges on the outside rather than inside with a pin in the middle.

Heres a photo of a similar SMA connector - http://content.answers.com/main/content/wp/en-commons/thumb/9/90/200px-Gniazdo_RPSMA.jpg

The brand of the network adapter is the same as the brand of the antenna they are both D Link so youd think they would fit.
will the antenna or cable screw onto that?

thanks, jordan

I have a connectability problem I hope someone can help me with.

My trusty old Kensington Trackball went south on me (worn out gears). Iíve temporarily replaced it with a simple 2-button mouse I had around. Now I would like to buy a new trackball with all the bells and whistles including optical sensing. The one Iím interested in is the Microsoft Trackball Explorer. It comes with both USB and PS2 connectors. (The latter is an adapter). My computer is an oldie (like me) and has niether a USB or PS2 port on the back. My present mouse is connected to the 9-pin COM2 port as was the Kensington. It seems like everything these days is USB or PS2. So now the problem is what is the best approach to connecting up???????

An obvious option is to install either USB or PS2 but Iív been told (locally) that my basic PC computer architecture is too old to accept USB or PS2 installations without possible incompatibility problems. Its running fine but its been dragged up through the ranks by umpteen upgrades. It is currently running fine with Windows 98se on a 4.2 g HD and an AMDK6-2-233 processor with 64 mg RAM. The motherboard was new in Aug, 2000. (Donít know details).

Another option (?) - -Is USB or PS2 input data processable through the COM port with an adapter?

Sure would appreciate some guidance on this - - -even if its that Iím whistlimg Dixie or ďBuy a new computerĒ,

Thanks in advance.

I have a z14 that is several years old. I've been very happy with it and it continues to work well - with one problem.
I noticed a few months ago that opening the lid failed to wake up the laptop. I often leave it running and plugged in while at home. I just close the lid and it goes to sleep. Open it the lid, and it prompts for login. But no any more.
Then I discovered that there is apparently something amiss with the connection to the display. It acts like it is dirty or worn in some way. If I move the lid forward and backward, the display cuts in and out. Often when I boot up, I have to move it back and forth in order to see the login screen and continue. It's getting worse. I have also found that if I hold the side of the lid / screen and exert a light twisting pressure, the screen goes off and on.
What is the mechanism through which the laptop detects an open and closed lid? I was thinking it might be associated with the hinges, but from information I've seen, that doesn't seem to be the case. My hinges, btw, are tight and seem fine. 
When the display is working, it works just fine. It's either on and fine, or off it seems. 
Where should I start to diagnose this problem? 
Thanks for any advice or information you can share.

A:z14 Hinge or Connector Problem - I think

There's usually a magnet located somewhere in the lid and a switch in the palmrest that trips the cut off.  The other issue could be a loose connection or faulty LVDS cable (the one that runs between the back of the screen and the mainboard.
Does an external monitor cut out at the same time as the internal one does when the display is moved?  If not, the problem isn't the lid switch-- it's more likely the video cable.

Welcome to TSF....

Since you can not get on the web with this computer you will have to find one that can and that has a CD-R burner. What you need is all of the special drivers for the motherboard like chipset, buss, network, video, audio and what ever else is listed on the site. You can find these at either the site for the motherboard or computer manufacturer. when these are downloaded you then burn the files to the CD-R and then install them in the order I typed. Then you can install the regular drivers for the devices.

Have a good day

I cannot access my email or calendar on Microsoft Outlook 2010.

When I go to 'Info' at the 'File' tab, it says the following:
"Your mailbox is currently being optimized as part of upgrading to Outlook 2010. This one process may take over 15 minutes and performance may be affected while the optimization is in progress."

This was already like this yesterday...that has been a bit longer than 15 minutes!

Next to the upgrade button it says: "You must upgrade to the latest version of Outlook Hotmail Connector to continue using this e-mail account."
When I click on the 'Upgrade Now' button nothing happens...

What can I do to solve this problem?

i recently built a new pc, the mb is a x58i xfx, along with a intel core i7 cpu and gts 250 geforce gc. a couple days ago i installed a 2nd video card, booted it up, worked wonderful, no problems what so ever, then today i went to boot it up and it would just turn on for a split second the shut down. i thought something might be grounded, so i messed around with a few things and same thing, so i took everything out of the tower and put it all back in, same thing, i finally had just the essentials hooked up and laid out on a table and narrowed it down to if i have the 8pin atx 12v power connector unplugged it boots, but then im getting no video, if i plug it back in it continues with the previous problem. if anyone has any suggestions i would greatly appreciate it, dont want to send a 2 month old mb back already

Hi,

I want to reuse a previously junked machine that has Celeron 600Mhz processor on a Mercury KOB 810FST motherboard. This motherboard (AT) has on-board VGA with a 16-pin connector for it (see attached pic for more info). Sometime ago (like..2 years back), I did a stupid thing by incorrectly connecting the VGA adapter cable (or whatever u call the one that's fixed to the back of the cabinet for connecting to the monitor) to the on-board VGA connector, which burnt the whole cable. Luckily, this motherboard survived without damages (at least so far :haha: ).

Now, I am trying to get this system working again without spending much. A friend got me a new VGA adaptor cable. Problem is... it has got only 15 holes instead of 16 for the 16 pins on the motherboard (see attached pic). How do I connect them?

Thanks

Trying to troublshoot a problem here, on a pentium II. The h/d has had a virus for some time, and was not worked on in quite a while. When booted, it kept restarting...unable to get into 'safe mode', or any option for that matter, keeps restarting. The hard drive did work on this system, until somebody used a vac on it to clean out the thick dust on it!!! Now, there is no power to the h/d period. So, I took out the h/d and put in into another system, it booted, let alone the problem of it restarting. First, I want to know what else I could do to see why the h/d won't boot in the original system. Here is what I checked. Disconnected the cable and power cord from the h/d, reconnected them. Made sure of the proper connector seated on the M/B. Checked all the other hardware, made sure everything was connected where it is supposed to be. I am to believe that maybe the M/B, or another device was ruined by the vac that was used on it. Any other suggestions? THis is not my puter...I am responsible, however if I choose to work on it. So, I have to be careful what I do here.

I have a Dell Inspiron 530 computer that uses Sata connections exclusively. I just purchased a Asus Xonar Essence ST sound card that will only accept a female IDE plug. I have had no success in finding the right connector despite the fact that I have tried many computer stores and the Internet. In the event that
such a connector does not exist, can anyone provide me with a wiring diagram in order that I can make one up myself.

Thanks

Okay so I have
TOshiba Laptop L300, good condition,
Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit

I just reinstalled windows vista because it was having a few issues with shutting down. That is fixed now, but when I reinstalled it some of the drivers had errors, like 2 or 3 of them, I am used to this and I went around to downloading the fixes. This was a little harder than usual because my network connector driver is one of the missing or not working drivers, so I used my sisters laptop for driver download.

Okay so I tried for about... two days, I don't have a clue what the problem is, I started with the most obvious, toshiba website and tried a few of their drivers, it didnt work, I tried realtech, intel, all these other ones and no luck, I have no idea why, I have nnot had a driver problem like this before.
I have tried network drivers, wifi, ethernet, NIC you name it, none work, I try unpacking them and then clicking 'update driver' on device manager, and I try just installing them.
Please come back with your first thoughts on it as well as dealing with the problem as is, because it is possible that I missed a driver or didn't know which was the right one. Can anyone link me to the one they would download if it was them with this system with the network connector device with the little exclamation mark?

But then again I could have tried the right one and the problem is further than installing drivers, thoughts if that was the case?

Thanks so much, drivers are pr... Read more

So, I recently purchased parts from Newegg to make a new system, everything went fine when putting all of the parts together and plugging all of the cords from the PSU into the motherboard and the peripherals. My problem is that when I plug the PSU into the wall outlet and try to turn on the computer from the front panel, it won't turn on. I have plugged all of the system panel connectors correctly into the motherboard according to my motherboard's manual specifications. I have already tried different outlets and have the setting on the PSU set to 110. I think that the problem might be faulty wires from the system panel connectors. The light on the motherboard turns on when the PSU is plugged in and turned on, so I don't think that the PSU is the problem.

Any help you guys could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Will post system specs if needed.

A:System panel connector problem

Well, there are two main options, either one of your components is faulty, or you did not install the hardware correctly.

As all your hardware is brand new, its unlikely, but still possible. Problem is when everything is new, its harder to figure out what is defective.

I would just go with hypothesis two, that something is not plugged in correctly. Double check the front panel connections and everything else, make sure its all tight. Use different rails for all components if possible (although 600W should be plenty). Make sure that the CPU fan is plugged into the motherboard. Make sure that no unplugged power connectors are touching anything.

Besides the light, what else powers up? The CPU cooler, case fans, hard drives? Any beeps when you turn it on?

Hope someone can assist me here.

I am trying to fit a 80GB HDD to this M10 and I have managed to get the HDD caddy from Hong Kong but no matter where I turn to I cannot find the correct IDE connector.
If anyone can give me a link to a supplier I would be really thankful. I have had this project going for about 4 months now and it has crawled to a halt.

Thanks.
