Aug 12, 2013, 3:28 PM
I accidentally bent the HdLed pins on the motherboard. I straightened them the best I could. What do these do? Will they still work?

HDLed powers the hard drive activity light. If it is straight, you should be fine.

HD-LED is just the signal light on the outside of your system that lets you know when data is being accessed.
This is NOT system critical and your system will function fine if these are completely kaputt
