Help with Front Panel/Power Button Connector

Q: Help with Front Panel/Power Button Connector

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?


Sorry if that sounded really nooby,

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.

I downloaded the specific instruction guide from MSI for my motherboard and here's the section for it:The two right sound in and out cables were still attached, and I got sound out of my right speaker. But then when I connected the rest to what I thought was correct, I got sound out of my left speaker only. EDIT: I tried not attaching any of the cables and then I get no sound.The problem I have with these directions is that the cables are not labeled the same as the diagram.

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.

In Spontaneous restarts, perhaps seemingly caused by power switch? Help! I describe a bothersome situation where, as of now, it appears that my PC is rebooting itself once in the morning upon being woken from sleep and logged into, then behaves fine after that (so overheating, hardware failure, etc., are not the likely causes).

In Random reboot someone experiencing a similar problem a couple years ago says "I've set Windows 7 to do nothing when the button is pressed" as the way the user solved his random restarts, and I'd like to try that myself.

I know if I were a "real man" I'd open the case, find the restart button, and unplug it.

But I'm not. I'm a wimp who hates moving his case, unplugging things, and opening the case, if it can be avoided.

Is there really a setting in Windows or in the BIOS that would disable the signal from the reset button? My case does have separate buttons for power and for restart.

A:How to Windows-disable the front-panel restart button?

If it is the reset button you are trying to disable, it cannot be done from Windows.

It is a hardware reset directly to the circuits on the motherboard.

Appreciate some help.

Have an HP empty case (XT 936 Pavilion) in which would like to place a used mainboard and other components. The used mainboard came with a Compaq Presario 5360. (AMD Athlon 450MHZ)

Installed the Compaq mainboard in the HP case, and everything fit like a glove. The Power/Reset switch connector is one piece with a series of 4 pins and 3 pins respectively.

Well, the darn power switch on the HP case will not turn on the power supply. Tested the power supply, and it works, but if the power switch connector from the HP case is used, it is no-go.

Any ideas of how to get this case to work with the Compaq mainboard? Read about rigging the momentary power switch, but not clear as to how this is done.

Thanks in advance for the help.

So I built my first computer, but before I start it up I just wanna make sure of a few things...

With my case(ATX), the power supply has a bunch of cables coming from it(obviously), the large 4 pinned cables are the power supplys right? Well, each cable has two 4-pinned connectors, one in the middle and then one at the end, and a few of them have a smaller 4 pinned connector coming out of that too(still with me?)
Does it matter if I have the first connector hooked up to.. lets say... the CD drive, and the second to say, the harddrive, and the third smaller one to my floppy drive? Or can each cable only connect to one device?




I really hope your still with me, cause the next question gets worse....




Ok well on the front panel on my case I got 4 USB ports, a mic port, headphone port, and firewire port. The USB connectors we're labeled exactly as whats on the motherboard so that was no biggie, but then came the mic and headphone ports =
On the motherboard from what I can tell theres only one place for front panel connectors:

2 4 6 - 10
1 3 5 7 9

and in the manual it labels them as follows:
1 is labeled AUD_MIC (Front panel microphone input signal)
2 is labeled AUD_GND
3 is labeled AUD_MIC_BIAS (microphone power)
4 is labeled AUD_VCC (Filtered +5V used by analog audio circuits)
5 is labeled AUD_FPOUT_R (right channel audio signal to front panel)
6 is labeled AUD_RET_R (right channel audio signal return from front panel)
7 is labeled HP_ON (... Read more

A:My cases power cables and front panel connectors..

For your first question, yes, you can connect the power jacks in that order.

Now onto you're second question:

From what you've described, I would assume that AUD_FPOUT_R would correspond to HPOUT R and AUD_RET_R would correspond to HPOUT -R. The negative corresponding to the return line.

About the vcc and ground, i'm not sure. If it were me, I would try it. But that is completely up to you.

Hi,
I have the first of my basic questions. I am working on replacing the motherboard of my computer and I ahve been able to just remove the things from the old one and put them back on the new one but the double row of 10 pins (actually 9 on one row) has different wording and stuff than the old one and I am not sure which pins to plug in the power switch on. The computer itself is an Enpower with an AMD Athlon processor. The new motherboard is a Compaq Part # 227954-002 or 2207610-102. Also called QUIK SILVER motherboard. I was told that any SOCKET A 462 motherboard would work so I am hoping it is compatible. Everythign seems to switch over just fine as long as I can figure out how to plug in the turn on switch. I will probably have a bunch more questions after I get that one solved but for now I can't come up with any more questions because I can't turn it on :haha: Hopefully someone out there in cyberspace will know how to help me. I spent an hour on line chatting with two of the HP Support people with only some results. But not everything. We managed to figure out which LEDs went where but not the power switch. I could manage without the LEDs
Thanks! Lauralee
 

A:I need to know how to plug in the power switch on the front panel of my computer

The power switch and reset do nothing but short two pins for the time you hold the button down, so wire orientation doesn't matter. Which pins you have to short? You need the motherboard manual or decipher the writings near the pins.

Neither of the USB port devices (the 4 x USB below, or the multi-port device above) will power up a 2.5" USB drive enclosure. Also, some SELF-powered external drives, when plugged into the 2 devices, give read-write errors.

Memory cards, mouse antennas, and even an HP printer will communicate properly through the ports.

Is there a BIOS setting maybe for the headers on the mobo, that will affect this?
 

A:Front Panel USB ports won't power up USB 2.5" device...

No. Typically a sign of low quality cabling/connectors used for the case ports. You can get a port bay to install into an available 3.5" or 5.25" bay.

Have a 5 y.o. local built white box tower that I'm happy with. Recently unplugged for ten days while on vacation. Came back and first had a hard time getting the back switch to power up, then had to use front switch reset button several times to get the entire unit to power up.

Since then when I power down or unplug, it's very unreliable about powering back up on either switch. I can tell that sometimes the power is getting through due to the light on my router and other times it's not. Even if it is getting through then the front switch may have to be reset several times to actually boot.

Also, after powering down at night via "shut down" on screen or using the front switch (Windows XP Home), then sometimes I can see the DVDRW trying to power up, or see the HD trying to power up - over and over and over.

the receipt describes the case only as ATX4252PCT and the PSU as 340W PS for P4 w/UL.

I've installed one PSU (PC power and cooling dell silencer 470) on a Dell and confident I can do this one. I've never replaced a front switch and don't know anything about this one other than it appears to be integrated with the case.

Need to blow the dust out of the unit but otherwise don't know what else to do. 'fraid to shut down too many more times.

So, do you think it's the PSU or the front switch or both that have a problem? Could I have killed some 5 y.o. backup battery by unplugging for 10 days? Is it a... Read more

A:Power supply or front push button switch?

Replace the power supply with one 350 Watts or greater... of quality, as well as the CMOS battery.
The replacement CMOS battery is only $3.50 at Wal-Mart, and it has been enough time for that to be bad.
Switches rarely to very rarely go bad.
On a computer with that many hours, it could also be the hard drive, but the symptoms are more likely the power supply.

Hello,

I just had my new build finished and it's been running for a day. Well, I'm new to windows 7 and I hadn't turned off sleep mode yet. Well, I stepped away for a few and came back to find that my pc was in sleep mode. I reeactivated the pc and everything kicked back on except for the blue power led on the front panel of my HAF 932 case. The hd led was working just fine but the power light has not turned on since. At first I thought that the LED went bad, but I realized that this only happened after sleep mode. It was fine just before sleep mode. I since then turned off sleep mode but no power led. After reading a bit about Windows 7 I have realized that there is a possibility that sleep mode caused this. What do you guys think? If Windows 7 is the reason than how can I fix it?


Thanks a bunch

A:Sleep Mode affecting front panel LED power light?

Check your connections to the front panel switches on the motherboard. It is possible that one of the leads has worked loose.

I had decided to change towers because the Xps 8700 didn't give much options for cable managements. I bought a corsair spec 02 and the wires I were given m.imgur.com/OTafpUH . The mobo that comes with the Xps 8700 does not come with a manual so i do not know where to plug in the wires. Here is a picture of the front panel pins m.imgur.com/uHuExgB. Hoping someone can help me, right now I can't power on my computer.

A:Dell Xps 8700 mobo 9pin front panel for h.d.d led power sw -p led +p led reser sw

If the 8700 is anything like the 8500, the HDD and Power LEDs occupy their traditional positions, but the power switch straddles the two rows of pins immediately to the right, rather than occupying two pins on one of the rows.
I bought an XPS 8500 motherboard on eBay and installed it in a Cooler Master N200 chassis. That's what I remember from it.

I upgraded from my Dell 8300 at work.  It has an I% processor so the idea was to give it to my son.  He wanted to keep his case, so I thought no big deal.  Now I am ready to toss it all out.
I cannot find a schematic for the front panel cables anywhere (motherboard DH67M01).  I need to hook up Power LED, Power Switch, and HDD LED (there is no reset button).
I only hope I have done it wrong, because now the computer will not boot (black screen with blinking cursor).

Hello! I have a Lenovo ThinkPad SL510 Laptop that I inherited from a batch of retired school computers. I was upgrading the HDD in it and I decided to have a look at some of the other components, so I removed the lower mouse panel and keyboard, but NOT the upper panel containing the power button and volume buttons. The issue is that now, when I plug in the computer (battery is shot), pressing the power button does nothing. I tried the method of removing the battery and AC power and pressing the button a few times to discharge any residual voltage to no avail. I know that I didn't damage any other components because when I remove and reconnect the BIOS battery, the computer boots up just fine. The only thing that doesn't work is the right hand side panel with the power button. I have tried reseating the ribbon connector, and both the ribbon cable and the motherboard header for it appear to be fine (and the left hand side panel works fine as well, pressing the mute button turns on the mute LED, but on the right side, no LEDs are on). I was wondering if there was something I am missing, or if I just need to replace the front panel. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

I am new to windows 7 and i would like to change these settings:

I don't get why it's greyed out.

I have a samsung series 9. I have seen something about fast start, but I don't have that application. I removed all the bloatware from my pc.

Making a new plan won't fix this problem either.

I also can't get hibernate to work. It doesn't appear in the start menu.

Hi

Since you have removed Fast start

lets try other way

Click start > run

type cmd.exe

Then type "powercfg -restoredefaultschemes"

and then reboot your system...

As many will be aware, MS have replaced Control Panel with Settings when you right click on start button.

It is quite easy to reset back to Control Panel as this context menu is customisable.

The link below describes customisation in detail.

Basically the menu entries are all stored in your profile


Below is how it is setup in the release version 14393.



I simply went to same folder in 14946 and replaced all icons including the desktop .ini with the ones from 14393 above.

As you can see below - it now shows control panel, and opens up control panel instead.

Hello.
I am having a not so common issue of a problematic REAR audio panel jack. The microphone pin got stuck and broken into the rear/back microphone jack and now the OS/driver thinks there is a microphone in the back panel but I just want to be able to make the microphone work on the front panel without needing to buy an external audio card (usb/pci) and disabling the integrated one.
The motherboard is Gigabyte GA-EP31-DS3L and the audio driver allows me to change what is plugged into the microphone jack but there is no option to disable it. I can disable the whole audio card from within BIOS but that doesn't help much. I have working speakers on the rear panel but on the front when I plug them it just gives a constant buzzing noise (like short circuit from the broken pin). If I plug microphone on the front panel nothing happens. Also Windows 7 doesn't detect a second microphone and even if I disable the original microphone there is still buzzing only in the front panel. Changing any possible option in skype doesn't make the microphone work either. I installed the latest drivers from the official site so it is not a broken driver issue. I can choose the microphone to be "Line In" but if I choose the blue jack to be "microphone" the audio driver program says "this device type is not supported". I suppose there is some software/registry fix to this problem but searching on google everyone wants the vice-versa version of the problem/solution (disa... Read more

A:How to disable read audio panel and make the front panel primary?

Nothing that I know of to fix that other than dig out the piece of pin that's stuck in the jack. I have a Gigabyte motherboard (different model) and RealTek and there is no option for what you want to do.

The jacks are enclosed, in most cases, so pushing it out from the back is probably not an option. I've seen some cases where users have got a broken pin out of a jack with a magnet. In other cases putting a small amount of glue on a probe and inserting it into the jack and gluing to the pin has got it out. Both of these are long shots but something to consider.

This possibly should go in the hardware forum since it involves the motherboard as well but being a sound issue I assume here would be better.
I have an Asus Xonar DG sound card on an Asus P7P55D-E LX motherboard (and AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series video card) running on Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
I asked ASUS tech if I can use both the front panel & back panel at the same time for use of my headset (headphones and mic therefore headphone jack and mic jack.) They said NO that I had to choose one or the other, not both, and, that this has nothing to do with the sound card or MB but rather is a Windows thing. I assume this info is correct. Is it? If not please advise me as how to be able to use both.
On the assumption that it is correct, that I must make a choice an idea popped up.
My speakers are 'Cyber Acoustics CA-5402'. They have a control pod whereby on this control pod I could add my headphones whereby all speaker sounds are cut off automatically. Unfortunately this control pod which also controls the volume of the speakers no longer has control of the volume when the headphones are on and therefore volume must be controlled via Windows.
My idea. Can the Xonar, or rather Windows along with it, be set up so as to use only the front panel for the mic but NOT for the headphones?
OR
Since the control pod also has and 'aux in' (unfortunately not 'aux out') maybe this could be hacked somehow.
OR
Since I actually have 2 control pods, of which only one can be attached (to t... Read more

A:Using both front panel audio and back panel: solutions

Whether you can use both, depends on the sound card software, not Windows. You should be able to use the front for mic and the GREEN speaker jack on the back for the headphones. However, why would you want to do that? If you plug the headphones into the rear speaker jack, you have to unplug the speakers from the PC to do this.

Normal operation is to use the front panel for the headphones (and mic) and when you plug in the headphones it mutes the output to the speakers. On some sound card control software (for example RealTek) there are options to either mute the speakers when the headset is connected or not mute the speakers and have both headset and speaker sound.

You have to use the designated Mic input, as a PC mic requires 5VDC for operation. Other than the mic input, others do not have 5VDC.

On the front panel connections. Your front panel audio connection must be to the ASUS Xonar and not to the motherboard sound connection. Since you have a separate sound card, your motherboard sound should be disabled in the BIOS so it does not conflict with the Xonar. In addition, you can only have one default audio playback device (e.g. Xonar OR motherboard sound but not both).

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 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?
