Default So, problem connecting to motherboard.

The lights and power switch in the front of my case cannot connect to my mobo. I can get one light to light up, and that is by putting it in the wrong slot. There are four slots on the motherboard where you are supposed to connect those, and five things to connect to it. Can anyone help?

I have - ABIT LG-95 LGA 775 Intel 945G Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail for my motherboard and - Rosewill R230-P-BK Black 0.5mm SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail for my case.

Default Re: So, problem connecting to motherboard.

You have "hard drive light", "system power light" "power switch", "reset switch".
slots on the motherboard.

The numbers are the pins on the motherboard, "x" means there is no pin.


system power light is pin "1 positive polarity, 2 ground "
power switch is pin "3 and 4
hard drive light is pin "5 positive polarity, 6 ground"
reset switch is pin "7 and 8"

Try turning the LED connectors the other way if it doesn't work.

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

duh, just follow the instructions in your mobo's manual very carefully... easiest thing in the world... and if the manual is wrong... well, you have alot bigger problems than lights not turning on XD - RK
