Case help

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I need help with my case.. its a micro-ATX with a micro-ATX motherboard, I have connected up all the power button cables to which seems to be the right pins... But the power button doesnt work... the reset button and LED's all work fine but its the power button. I dont know where else to put it. I have a front display pannel to show fan speeds and the cables to plug into the pins are split up into 5 diffrent cables (Power SW, Reset SW, H.D.D LED, Power LED+ and Power LED-) i believe its only the Power SW which may be not in the right place. The case is new just got it a few hours ago so the chances of a faulty cable are low.



Please help ASAP

Thanks in advance.

I would try reversing how you plugged the Power SW plug, see if that'll do it.

Pull the plug that says "Power SW" off the motherboard header and just reverse and plug it back in. Note I don't mean all of the header connections just the "Power SW" plug.

Also what case and mobo are you using if I may ask?

nickt1862 meant flip it. Just unplug the power buttons end spin it 180 degrees and plug it back in and see if it works. You might have the positive on the negative and the negative on the positive right now.

There should be a label next to the connector on your motherboard that explains how to plug it in.

Just look for the correct placement and try to get it situated in the right spot.

There's nothing difficult about it though if it's a beginner I understand it seems to be more intimidating.

Correct as one of the above posts - just flip it and plug the "Power SW" back in.

Couldn't come up with "flip" earlier.

I am thinking differently.
  • It may not be on the right pins
  • Check your power supply cables to motherboard and cpu.

The polarity of the power button probably doesn't matter, just bridging two pins. someone can easily verify that.

The (mobo) motherboard where those plugs are plugged onto - normally there's a model number printed on it someplace.
