The connectors you are referring to, are the Front Panel connectors. The wires come from the Front Panel, where your Power On button is.

The pins on the motherboard are called Headers.

Your Power On switch, (It's behind that button), the Reset switch, Harddrive Activity Lamp, (Light), and so on, connect to the Front Panel headers on the motherboard.

That explained, let's continue;
This is in reference to the MSI K9N6SGM-V motherboard. If this is not the model of your MSI motherboard, come back with an additional comment, and state the Model Number.

The link below is to MSI Support, and the download page for the ->motherboard manual. It is a Zip file. I'll explain how to open that file.

(Copy and paste the above link into your address bar, then press the Enter key)

Under the Download heading on the right, click on ->
(It's in Blue)
On the next page I recommend clicking on -> U.S, in the blue button.
A small window will pop-up. Left-click on the small empty circle to the right of -> Save.
Now, if you do not have your downloads set to go to your My Documents folder, (Start>My Documents), this will go to your desktop screen.
Minimize all windows that are open, to see your desktop screen.

On your desktop screen you will see a new yellow folder, with ->, underneath it.
Double-click on it. In the next window go up to the top left, and click on -> Extract all files. In the next window click on ->Next, then click on Next again.
(Same thing if it's in your My Documents folder)

Now click on-> Finish. You will now see a PDF file with -> 7309v.1.1(G52-73091X2).pdf
Double-click on that file name.
You will now be looking at the Motherboard Manual, for your MSI motherboard.

Page 7 shows your Front Panel headers. There are two of them. JFP1, and JFP2. (Junction Front Panel 1, and Junction Front Panel 2)

JFP1 is on the bottom right. There are 5 rows of 2 pins each. The pins go down in a column. There is NO pin on the top Left of the column.

JLPC1 is a header to the immediate Left of JFP1. (It has 7 rows of 2 pins, but 1 pin is missing 3 over from the right side, and on top) Disregard the JLPC1 header. The JFP2 header is to the Left of the JLPC1 header.
It has 5 rows of 2 pins, with NO pin in the bottom right corner.

At the very bottom of Page 13 it shows you where your Front Panel connectors go.
(When I refer to the page numbers, look at the very top of the PDF file in the Square box. The Square box is to the right of the Blue Down Arrow.
I am not referring to the page number on the page itself)

    Wanted to add;
    I realize the above may look a little complicated, but it isn't. I detail out too much sometimes, in providing a solution.

    In case you Cannot download the Zip file, or have trouble opening it, I thought I would give you the Pinout of JFP1 and JFP2 headers.

    Goes up, and down vertically, and is on the bottom right side of the motherboard.
    2 pins going down in 5 rows. This makes 10 pins. There is NO pin on the Upper Left corner.

    Starting at the Top on the Left side, and going down,
    Pin 10, (NO Pin), pin 8, pin 6, pin 4, and pin 2.

    Starting at the Top on the Right side, and going down,
    Pin 9, pin7, pin 5, pin 3, and pin 1.

    Pins 8 and 6 are for the Power On switch. The + (Positive) goes to Pin 6.
    Pins 4 and 2 are for the Power LED light. (Use this header, if your Power On light has a connector for 2 pins)
    Pins 7 and 5 are for the Reset switch.
    Pins 3 and 1 are for the HarDDrive Activity light. This is the light that tells you when your harddrive is active. (HDD)

    JFP2: Goes horizontal across the bottom of the motherboard. It has FOUR rows of 2 pins. Looking along the Bottom, from Left to Right, there are 3 pins, then NO pin.
    ->I was mistaken with the previous information before. The JFP2 header has FOUR rows of TWO pins!

    Pinout going along the Top, from Left to Right,
    Pin 2, pin 4, pin 6, and pin 8.
    Going along the Bottom, from Left to Right,
    Pin 1, pin 3, pin 5, and pin 7.

    Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8 are to connect the internal speaker, if there is one. The speaker is used to hear the BIOS Beep Codes.
    Pins 1, 3, and 5 are used if you have a Power LED has a connector for three pins.
    There is NO pin 7.

Is it possible to reset a motherboard?

you can reset motherboard bios & back to its default settings by jumpering the CMOS battery terminal.BE SURE TO TURN OFF PC OR DETTACH POWER CABLE IN DOING THIS STEPS.

all u have to do is take out your cmos battery that is located in your motherboard & jumper the positive & negative terminal of the cmos battery by using a metal like screw.make sure your PC is not turned on or pull out the power cable of the cpu to avoid damage to the motherboard.

some mother boards have pins to reset its motherboard bios. just transfer the jumper to its reset location commonly it has only 3 pins.

If the machine is OLD, check if it has a backup battery that might be depleted. Beyond that I would suspect the power supply may have a problem with the power-on-reset circuit.

How can you reset the cmos password

Dell Optiplex 780, user forgot BIOS master password (which is necessary to change the boot order to run BartPE from CD and do an image backup).

There is a jumper on the mainboard called PSWD1, which is set (shorted). Remove power cable from PC (CMOS battery can stay in place), open the lid. Remove jumper from PSWD1. Reconnect power, start the PC, hit F2 to enter BIOS. All passwords should be reset.

Leave BIOS, power off the PC, remove power cable. Reattach jumper to PSWD1, close lid, reattach power cable. Start PC. Enjoy.
