Hi,

First of all make sure the power connectors are properly seated on the motherboard. Secondly, remove all the connectors from the Front Panel. For example the power, reset, LED's etc, and then start to put them back. If you a plastic jumper right next to the motherboard battery then take that plastic jumper off the motherboard.
On the motherboard the pinouts on the front panel should be colour coded, and marked with letters like in this picture >>>>>
Cannot get new mobo to - ce10baf.jpg

The connectors are also marked corresponding to where the connect on the motherboard, like in this picture >>>>>>

If the board is not colour coded then the motherboard will marked with the same letters, you may need a strong light and a magnifying glass to see the marks and they are usually at the bottom right of the motherboard.

Hope this helps.


Regards.

When I refer to a page number it will be for the PDF reader, and not the actual manual's page )

Go to Page 8.
Motherboard Layout

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

JFP1 is the Front Panel header.
JFP2 is an additional header. To be discussed after JFP1.

JFP1 is on the Right/Bottom corner. It is placed Vertically.
(Parallel to the right bottom edge of the motherboard)

Above it's left corner is JUSB2. (Front Panel USB header 2)
Above JUSB2 is the SATA2 connector. To the left of the SATA2 connector is the SATA1 connector.
To the left of the SATA1 connector is the CMOS battery.

The contact pins are arranged in two columns.
4 pins on the Left side, 5 pins on the Right side.

Go to Page 14. JFP1 pinout, and JFP2 pinout, is at the Bottom of the page.

JFP1:
Starting on the Bottom going towards the Top, Right side;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

Starting at the Bottom going towards the Top, Left side'
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light)
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
IF the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. (Probably 5 Volts positive, and used by the factory only)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED. (Light)
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
IF the PWR ON LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

JFP2:
Below JFP1 is a header that is placed Horizontally. It is parallel to the Bottom edge of the motherboard. This header with 13 pins in it, is the JLPC1 header.
(Starting on left side at the Top row; 4 pins, no pin, 2 pins.
Starting on the left side at the Bottom row; 7 pins)

To the left of the JLPC1 header is the JFP2 header.
4 pins across the Top row, 3 pins across the Bottom row.

The top 4 pins across the top are for an internal speaker. Used to hear BIOS Beep Codes.
Starting on the Left side coming towards the Right, top row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.
No indication of polarity.
Believe pin 2 is for the Positive wire, and pin 8 is for the Negative wire.

Starting on the Left side coming towards the Right, Bottom row:
Pins 1, 3, and 5.

These pins are ONLY used for a Power On LED light, that has 3 wires.

May i know how to plug in the LED and HDD LED and RESET SW wire?


They should be etched on the motherboard. Also the MB manual should note how they are connected. The connector will have a triangle or arrow head on one side. That is the positive wire. If you get them backwards the leds won't work right if at all.

Emachine W3410,the main three wire from the motherboard to the power botton on and off switch was remove and iam not sure wish pin they go to .power led, power sw, H.D.D.led,


The eMachines W3410 uses an MSI ms-7145 motherboard.
Also known as RS480M

This is MSI Support, and the download page for the motherboard manual, for the RS480M motherboard,

http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=1&prod_no=204

To the Right of the photo of the motherboard, you will see a gray bar with, BIOS, Driver, Utility, Manual, and RSS.
Left-click on Manual.

On the next page look under the heading to the right - Document.
Left-click on the blue - E7145v2.1.zip

On the final page click on the country nearest yours.
A small window will come up with the heading -
Opening E7145v2.1.zip

Be sure that Save File has a green dot, in the empty circle to the left.
[If not, Left-click on the empty circle to the left of Save File]
Now click on OK, below.

Where this file will go.
If you Do Not, have your documents set to save to your My Documents folder (Documents for Vista), the file will go to your desktop screen.

In either place Double-click on the file. Now go up to the left, and click on - Extract All Files.
Click on Next, and Finish.

You will now see a PDF icon. Double-click on this icon.
Go to Page 15.

The plastic panel on the front of your computer is the Front Panel.
This is where the Power On switch, Power On LED, and HDD LED are located.

The connector on the motherboard where the cables (Wires) attach to, is the Front Panel header.
The front panel header is a series of pins, sticking up out of the motherboard.

The MSI ms-7145 motherboard, (RS480M) has the Front Panel header separated into two headers.

JFP1, and JFP2

Looking at the motherboard with the Processor socket to the top, and the Ram Memory slots to the right, the JFP1, and JFP2 front panel headers are located at the extreme bottom Right, of the motherboard.

[Use the Zoom In feature (+ at top of file) to enlarge the motherboard layout on Page 15]

Now go to Page 38.
Page 38 shows the connections for the JFP1, and JFP2 headers.

The JFP1 header, and the JFP2 header, consists of two rows of pins in a horizontal column.
The pins are arranged parallel, to the bottom edge of the motherboard.

Right above the JFP1, and JFP2 header may be three pins, with two of the pins have a jumper. We will not concern ourselves with this jumper header (BIOS with Protect Jumper)

The JFP1, and JFP2 headers are close together. There is no separation in-between them.

The JFP2 header is for an internal speaker.
The JFP1 header is for the Front Panel cables.

The JFP1 header pins start from the right side of the motherboard, and go towards the left.

There are 5 pins across the Bottom. (Going from right to left)
There is NO pin, then there are 4 pins across the Top.
(Again, going from Right towards the left)

The top row of pins are numbered Evenly.
The bottom row of pins are numbered Odd.

Starting on the Right side, going towards the left for the Top row of pins, the pins are numbered,
10 (NO pin for 10), 8, 6, 4, and 2.

Starting on the Right side, going towards the left for the Bottom row of pins, the pins are numbered,
9, 7, 5, 3, and 1.

1) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED.

2) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch

3) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED

4) Pins 5 and 7 are used for a Reset switch. (If applicable)

5) Pin 9 is not used.

I NEED DRAWING FOR THE FRONT PANEL CONNECTION


Download the manual for you're MSI PM8M-V motherboard from MSI; http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=searchresult&keywords=PM8M-V&table=download
You will need to download and install Adobe reader to view the manual. Download Adobe; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
Open manual to page 9. See Front Panel Connectors: JFP1 & JFP2. There is no need to connect JFP2's Power LED jumper, this is completed at JFP1. Each wire jumper coming from the case will have one wire color in common with all connectors except the speaker jumper. That common colored wire will be use as negative.
The speaker wire commonly as red is positive and black is negative.

Cheers'
