For some weird reason I can't figure out how to get the front panel connectors to work with my new MSI p55 gd65 MOBO. If anyone has a detailed picture with the connectors would be awesome because the manual is very confusing.
I can turn on my system by manually turning on the power button on the mobo and it posts and i can get in the bios.
hit and miss is how i have done mine generally, 1= pin. ,= blank.
1,,1 = is normally the post speaker. 1,1 is the power L.E.D, and the rest are HDD, HD LED and power and RS. i knwo that nto much help but its best I can do, the power will be 11. with the posotive on the left, (in most cases) posotive will be coloured/negative either black or white
MSI usually print the pin / connector guide on the surface of the motherboard itself.
You should have a block of pins
PWR = power button + & - makes no odds which way round it goes
RST = reset button again polarity doesnt matter
HDD = HDD activity LED - polarity is important - if it doesnt light up then turn the
PLED = power led - polarity on this too needs to be correct or the led wont work -
if it doesnt then simply turn the connector round
