Lenovo IdeaCentre K220 Front Panel Connector

Q: Lenovo IdeaCentre K220 Front Panel Connector

I recently tried to upgrade my mother board in my pc. The factory motherboard has a 14 pin front panel connector and the new motherboard has a 10 pin front panel connector. I had the bright idea of tinkering with the wires and rearranging them to fit the 10 pin input. I am currently trying to put all the original parts back together and the wires are still set up for the 10 pin connector and not the 14. Could anyone help me figure out which postions to put the wires in on the connector?

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.
 

A:Front Panel Connector on Mobo

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

What is the order of connection of the pin numbers for the front panel connector.

Eg: what number pin for the power switch etc.

This is for a E-machine D2685 mother board that i have recently purchased.
 

A:e-machine front panel connector

According to my eMachine files the D2685 has a FIC VC37GV Mainboard and uses a Intel standard 9 pin front panel header.

Attached is a pinout for that header.

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 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

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?

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'm using a Gigabyte G31 motherboard GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 775 - GA-G31M-ES2L (rev. 1.x)

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.

I could not see an update for the BIOS from 9/29/2008. Is there one available? If anyone can find a URL I would try that.

Is there a setting in the BIOS that should be changed to prevent this from happening? I couldn't find it although, I changed any settings that suggested restart on failure or error.


Further, the Machine Type and Model as well as the Serial Number are shown as INVALID in the BIOS. I know that there is a utility to change this but don't know where I would find that.

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.

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).

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 have been thinking of adding an stock old case fan pulled from a decommissioned Lenovo H430 as a front intake. I don't know if I really need to but I did a install EVGA GTX 1050 Ti (max power draw 75W ~ can reach 80*c sometimes on stock fan curve) and was thinking could it hurt to move more air and keep all component happy and working well for many years? What do you think? Would it be to much for the non-upgradable 250w power supply?If I did, I see the AUX1 fan socket on the front of the motherboard. Is it as simple as just plugging the fan in and pushing the rubber dampeners the metal chassis? Also If I did install it but later wanted to take the fan out would the mobo's BIOS be okay with the than missing AUX1 fan or would I need to change something to get back to where I am today with no AUX1 fan.  Lenovo IdeaCentre 710-25ISH with a i5-6400 Skylake ~ Win10 64 1703GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Reference Card G.SKILL Value 4GB DDR4 2133 288-Pin SDRAM x 4    Seagate Hybrid Drive 1TB SSHD + Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD Pioneer Blu-ray Burner BDR-209MLenovo LS2221 Wide 21.5" LED TFT Monitor via DVI-D + Samsung LN26A450C1D 26'' TV via HDMI Creative GigaWorks T20 series II

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 am planning on buying the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Gamer Sound Card, but was wondering if there was any difference between the front panel audio and the rear panel audio. Is there any difference at all? If so, which has better sound quality?

Link to sound card:

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Front Panel vs. Rear Panel Audio

The sound is comparable from fron and back as they
are processed by the same hardware.
With my X-FI extreme audio card,the front panel header
is only compatible with intel based HD front panel jack assemblies.
You may want to check that you have that before expecting to be
able to just connect the front panel connections.
It won't work with AC97 jacks.
It needs to have the autosensing built in for the jacks.

I see where several different people have made distinctions about which USB connections to utilize. Would someone please explain why the rear panel connections are more desirable and maybe more significantly what (if anything) should the front panel connectors be used for?

Are these connections not all from the same data buss.

Pavilion 500-205t originally came with Win 7 64 bit home,  upgraded last year to Win 10 anniversary edition 64 bit. Ser # 2MD4060X7W.  I am having trouble with the SS USB connectors on the Front of my Pavilion 500-205t.  I have to wiggle the flash drive or phone connector to get the computer to recognize what is attached and it frequently cuts in and out when in use.  The flash drive and phone connector work perfectly on my other HP Desktop. I have checked the wires and found that it is wired directly in the back of the connector and it attaches to the circuit board. I beleive the connectors have been damaged. Is a replacement part available, and if so:    1 . What is the part number    2. Where can I get it    3. How much does it cost. Thank You

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?
 

A:Alenware Aurora Front door connector/PSU issues

The connector is for LED which can be installed in the door. I twisted ALienware's arm to answer this. On rechecking my system connection panel, i discovered my pwr switch connect was wrongly connected into the wrong slot(my fault)!I installed a new hard drive as well and my system now appears fixed and stable. 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?

I have a p4SD-LE Asus MB (Same as P4G800V retail) That has an undocumented Front Headphone jumper near the black CD-IN connector (behind the PCI slots). I would like to use it to hook up the front pannel headphones but can not find any documentation on it. Anyone have any info?

Thanks in advance

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

I can`t find any info on a jumper either. The only manual I could seem to find was in Japanese lol

All I can find is a aux connector next to the cd-in connector.

Hello jesprej
 
Thank you for using the Lenovo forum
 
What i suggest trying is a static discharge of the unit as this may be all it is. below is some steps for this.
 
To discharge static that may have built up inside your machine follow the steps below: 1. Plug the cable into the socket and the machine. 2. Turn power off at the wall. 3. Hold down the power button on the front of the machine for 1 minute 4. Turn wall socket back on. 5. Turn machine back on.
