I have an HP Elite 9150t that had one of those defective motherboards and got tired of the problems. I decided to buy the Asus Rampage III GENE to replace the Pegatron mobo. I have had problems connecting it as some of the pins are different, etc. If anyone has replaced their HP Elite mobo with the Gene III could you help me connect mine?
This is the old one I had. I didnt hook up the front panel pins anywhere because there was no spot for them. so my front 1394, seaker output, USB, and LED lights dont work. Basically I dont know how to put it back together to the way it was. After I started I realized alot of the connections to the motherboard wouldnt work. The HP pocketdrive and easy backup were left disconnected from the mobo as i figured i didnt really need it. I guess my big problem is I need some sort of guide to help me put everything back together.
If the connector physically fits the front panel (look carefully, don't push hard) you can switch around your connectors to fit what's on the motherboard. Tag every wire to know which is which first, should be indications for that on the motherboard. http://www.frontx.com/head_con.html
