I have search this forum and the internet and could not find a complete wiring or the Power Button - Power LED - HDD LED. So I spent the last hour figuring out the wiring.

Here it is

1 = +5V
2 = +PLED
3 = -HDD
4 = -PLED and +HDD ( I know this looks not right but I had the +HDD to the +HDD and nothing happend )
5 = Blank
6 = + Power Button
7 = Blank
8 = - Power Button
9 = Blank
10 = Blank

So of you follow this the Power Button will work along with power button LED and also the HDD light will work when the HDD are doing something.

Have fun.

On Page 2 of this thread naya posted a diagram related to this, does it tie in with what you discovered?

All this shows how to connect the power button. It doesn't show exactly where there the wires need to go to get all the lights working correctly. This is way I post this. I have looked at that post but didn't find it of any help.

Here is the pin assignment diagram from http://www.asus.com. I recently installed an Asus board and i was able to use the manual that came with the board for pin assignments. Hope this helps.

Here is the power button pin assignments for the dell plug(in case that is what you were looking for). Got it from the Dell support section.

I'm installing an ASUS at the moment, you've identified pin 4 as going to 2 connectors on the ASUS board, but how can this be? Surely it can only connect to one pin and so which pin should this be? PLED-?
Thanks for the info!

I just finished rewiring this, it doesn't seem to have worked. Weirdly I had no pin 8 but a pin 7, which Dell says should be N/A. I asumed this was pin 8 perhaps placed in the wrong slot so wired it to the PWR GROUND but no luck... Any suggestions? I also had a pin #5, which again is supposed to be N/A... odd. Any idea where that should go?

When I insert the power cord everything starts up but then about 3 seconds later turns off and can't switch back on. Is this related to the re-wiring? Or could it be something else entirely?

Here's my current pin assignment:

1 +5v
2 PLED+
3 IDE_LED-
4 IDE_LED+
5 PLED-
6 PWR
7 PWR GROUND
8 N/A
9 N/A
10 N/A

Look at he picture again. if you look at the it will start with 1 on top and 2 on the bottom. The row with 2 should have a pin hole filled in so you can put and type of pin in. Now the one with the 1 are all odd numbers (9-7-5-3-1) the row with two will be even numbers (10-8-6-4-2).

I used a old case and used the plugs for in. I soldered wires going to the + HDD and - PLED and plug them into the 4 hole which is the ground the according to Dell diagram. Yes is looks funny with the + HDD being Connected to the Ground it is inverted like the Power Button. I hope this helps you.

Hmm. Thanks for the info. What I'd be interested to do at the moment is just test it to try and find what the problem is. So the question is, what are the fewest connectors I need to connect. I'm assuming it's just the PWR and PWR GROUND is that right? The LEDs (HDD etc) I'm happy to sort out later, for now I'd like to determine whether the problem is due to the wiring or something else. As the system actually powers up it seems that that might be ok, in which case I just need to sort out the correct wires to keep it on. But as I say, these don't seem to be matching up with what I had origianlly... v confusing. What would really help is another case to test the hardware in, but unfortunately I don't have a spare one!

As I say, what's interesting is that the system does start up, all the fans spin up and the lights come on, however about 3 seconds later it all shuts down again. Has anyone seen this before and if so what was the cause? I'm wondering if it's maybe not the wiring and I should be looking elsewhere as well

Check that your cpu fan is properly mounted. I had exact same symptoms when i installed my ASUS board. When i moved the pc, one of the cpu fan pins popped out and the cpu was overheating during startup. Built in protection shuts the pc down on overheat. Otherwise, make sure your CMOS is reset to factory for initial startup. As for the pins, you only need the power button.

There is another way to screen out whether your wire connection cause the problem or something else. Do you know you could turn on the system without the wire connected to the case. I mean, there is a power button on the mobo. Press it, your system will be on.

Hey guys, thanks for the tips. naya - Unforunately there isn't a separate power button so I can't test if it's the wiring that way... otherwise yeah that would have been great.If the wiring was faulty in some way, would it turn on at all though? Perhaps the fact that it even starts up suggests the wiring is ok and it's something else...

wade - yes thanks, actually I had heard that that can happen and so was wondering if that may be the case here, I did check the heatsink and it seems to be secured properly. I guess I could try just reattaching it, bit of a hassle but I suppose it's better safe than sorry. I'll check the CMOS is reset as well, I hadn't tried that. So for the pins, you only need PWR to start up, not PWR GROUND as well? Again, I'll double check all this tonight... thanks again!

You need both pins for the power button (you complete a circuit when you press the power button). Like Naya said, you don't need any connections to start your pc, you can press the power button that is soldered to the motherboard. It's tiny, but you should be able to see it's location in your owner's manual.

Just an added note: minimum connections for your mobo would be:

1. 24pin ATX power connector (the big one)
2. 8pin EATX12v power next to cpu
3. cpu fan 4pin (or 3pin if you go that route)
4. properly seated video card w/ 6 or 8 pin connector inserted.
5. (Assuming SATA HDD) SATA cable connected to mobo and Hard Drive, w/ power connected to hard drive.
6. ONLY IF NO OS INSTALLED, connect dvd rom SATA to mobo, and power to dvd rom
7. One stick of memory

If you can't get it to boot with that, then you might have deeper seeded issues.

Yeah I just had a read of the manual and it doesn't mention it in there, I'll check the board itself though, it's possible it just doesn't list every feature in the manual I suppose. I should be able to spot it on the board itself though :)

OK, yep you might be on to something with the ASUS board. I just checked my manual and it doesn't have an on board power button (shame on asus). If you have a jumper wire, you could just jumper power switch to ground momentarily on the asus board. If you hold it too long it will do a hard reset. That would also maybe be a symtom of mistakenly plugging one of your front led's between power and ground, it would continually do hard resets because the circuit is closed (never tried it, so don't know for sure).

Yeah good idea, a jumper is worth a try too. Yes I wondered about that, if the ground wire is mixed up somehow it could cause this problem. Well, it seems I have an evening of experimentation coming up...

wintergreen,

What is the model of your ASUS mobo that you have?

Yeah, I have checked the service manual. There is not power or reset button on this ASUS board. So what is your problem now? You could power the mobo and it run, but CPU is pretty hot? or You can't get it run again? Let forget about HDD LED and PC LED at this point. Go back to my drawing and connect only PWRBNT and GROUND first. If you could get into BIOS. Which mean you could do alot of thing in there to make your system work right.

OK I took some pictures that should clear up things. I also put the pin numbers next to Asus Pin Adapter and the Pins that connect to the Dell Pwr-PLED-HLED.

Remember the last picture is opposite of the actual pin line up of the Dell Black plug.

I'm having a similar problem with my Asus Striker Extreme

My pin 7 is blocked out but no others, I have tried every combination (i think) of wires to the power switch on none of them do a thing, except for my brown wire which is either pin 3 or pin 8. When I connect that to the +PWRSW the computer starts for a couple of seconds, without me pressing the switch, then turns off agian.

I'm pretty sure i've tried every combination there is for the power switch and earth pins, and nothing seems to work right.
All my components work in my other case.

HELP?!

You have your pins mixed up. The pin hole that is blocked is the 10 pin. This should fix your problem. Good Luck

Hi, I had the exact same problem, first I made sure it wasn't a motherboard problem by using a jumper to start it up - if you have a Striker Extreme it probably has a proper on/off button you can use to check this.

If it does start up ok, then it is simply a wiring problem, either try switching the PWR and PWR GROUND switches round (Dell states that these are inverted in the 630) or experiment with other combinations if you have the wrong wires. Make sure you label all the wires somehow so you know what combinations you've tried, and keep a record as you go of what you try and which way round you try, this will help you sort it out. It is very frustrating but it can be done! My front panel is now fully wired up and working after doing this. Good luck.
