Starting a pc without the power button Tags: New Build Motherboards Gigabyte Power Systems Last response: January 15, 2013 3:12 PM in Systems Share binarysprint January 14, 2013 7:54:10 PM My friend is constructing a PC with a gigabyte ga-990xa-ud3 1.2 motherboard. Does anyone know the exact location of the pins you need to connect to boot up the PC without a power button (or what they will be labeled as)?

They are usually the two green ones. Don't bend them as it will be harder to connect them when you actually plug the power connector in. | Report abuse Reply to cyanghost109 GhislainG Motherboard Master January 14, 2013 9:03:07 PM The power switch pins (probably PW on the motherboard) are clearly identified in the manual. | Report abuse Reply to GhislainG binarysprint January 15, 2013 3:12:03 PM Thanx | Report abuse Reply to binarysprint Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Starting a pc without the power button> Related ressources: ForumMy pc work by itself without pressing power button Forumstarting an ATX system without a power button ForumHow to power up a PC without using case switch on button ForumMy pc is turn on for seconds then turn off without using start button just when Forum[NO BOOT] Power LED lights up without pressing power button ForumMotherboard won't start with power button (No beep codes either) ForumPower supply won't turn on after pressing the power button on PC ForumSystem switches on even without myself switching on the power button o ForumStarting the pc without graphic card ForumNew Pc Build Power Button Prob ForumCan not Start my system using power button on cabinet Forummy Tungsten E power button is starting to fail ForumPower button got stuck at startup now computer doesnt boot ForumTurning on PSU turns on the Pc without pressing power ForumRosewill Challenger Power Button ForumHelp Building $700 Gaming PC ForumComputer will power up, but won\'t boot ForumPower Pins suddenly don't work ForumWill this Power Supply be enough?
