K7N2GM-V Front Panel Connectors JFP1/JFP2
« on: 11-June-05, 19:23:59 »

Hiya
Sorry if this is a dumb question, but this is my first build and first post to this forum!

I cannot figure out which cable (wire) connects to which pin at JFP1. I need to know which way the pins needs to be connected.
ie HDD Led (pin1/pin3), which color goes where? (pin1: white  / pin3: red) etc

The colors I have from the case is as follows:
Power Led:      white/green
Power Switch:  white/orange
Reset Switch:   white/blue
HDD Led:         white/red
Speaker:          red/black

The CPU is positioned correctly, the 4pin power attached. Monitor connected to onboard video. When I turn on the power, the monitor does not respond, the CPU fan works fine. The front LEDs (greeen and red) is on and steady, no activity.

Hope someone can help me out...
Thanks in advance.

for the switches it doesn't matter which way round they go

the coloured wire is always the (+) connection on the LEDs. try them one way round, if they don't come on, then turn around, they won't get harmed

note that your case PWR LED connects to the connector on JFP2 not JFP1. you may need to gently cut it in half if it only fits in a two pin connector

Thank you much for your reply, it was very helpful! But, I still seem to have a problem.
The monitor does not work, keep saying to activate via pc. The monitor is in working order. I tried using a video card instead of the onboard video connection and still the same result.
There is no error beeps, just the "green" LED comes on, on startup, the CPU fan is working and as I said nothing from the monitor! Any suggestions would be very welcome!
Thanks in advance.

for starters that Corsiar ValueSelect stuff will probably give you problems in future, so consider replacing that at some point
*edit* actually scratch that, i don't think this board supports dual channel mode anyway, so that may not be a problem :bonk:

Is your problem caused by your PSU? can you please post your PSU specs as detailed in my sticky? 300w sounds a bit low, so the amps might not be enough here to start everything...

"...12V@15A..." This could be the reason. Try a better P.S. with 18A. or more to 12v. rail. Also 20A. to 3.3v. rail is poor. What CPU is installed ?

+3.3V@28A; +5V@38A; -5V@0.5A; +12V@18A; -12V@0.8A; +5VSB@2A

Thanks in advance..

Well, I went for overkill and got a Antec 500w PSU
+3.3V@32A, +5V@35A, +12V1@17A, +12V2@19A, -12V@0.3A, +5VSB@2A

But my issues are still the same, the PC starts up, CD-ROM works, CPU Fan works, but no joy with the Monitor. Tried both onboard Video and a working Video card.

 :wall:

Any further suggestions or comments will be greatly appreciated!

All fans start up? Is the 4 pin 12 volt connection in place? It hangs from the PSU and looks like this in the end   : :

Have only one stick in, for a try. As this is the first time, I would have as little as possible in the system. Makes troubleshooting easier.

Behind the mobo there are stand-offs, to prevent the mobo from touching the case side. There wouldn't be any unused left, shortening the graphics card.

Shut if off, remove the video card and one stick of memory.  Then try clearing the cmos with the ac cord disconnected and see if it will start up at default settings.
