PowerEdge 1600SC

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody,

I was hoping someone would be able to help me with this, but it looks like a long shot. I just got a Dell PE1600SC motherboard for free(p/n: T3006) and I don't have the propietery power button connector from the Dell case. I was hoping there'd be a way around that power button connection? Is there a spec sheet as to where the specific connectors go?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

if there isnt a power button, just short the power sw connectors on the motherboard ( there nearly always labeled on every motherboard )

if not just go on the dell website and search for the model number, im sure something will come up

The thing is, it's one of those power connectors with one big connector for the whole thing. So, there's no defined power_sw pins. =(
The website shows nothing.

No, it's just the motherboard, I don't have the case with the propietary connector. The button is a regular one from a standard ATX case. I heard of someone doing it before, but I tried all the possible ways to do it.

so if its just the motherboard are you sure you can find power sw ?

if there is a big block of cables all connected together then just pull if off and remember where they were.

If you cant find power sw then you cant do anything with it.

server board isnt it ?

The power switch is usually in the bottom right corner of the motherboard I believe. You can always try touch the tips of the pins with a screwdriver. Basically "hot-wiring" your PC. I'm modding my main case right now and I don't have a switch on my backup case so that's what I'm doing for now. It doesn't cause any harm at all to your PC because that is basically all a switch is doing, just jumping the connection when you push the switch.

Yep, it's a server board.
But, I don't think you fully understand what I mean here, it's one big connecter that has everything inside of it (psw, rsw, led, hddled) all in one connection. Is there anyother way to start it up?

if you take that big connector off, then look at the pins it was covering look for power sw.


can you find or take a picture of it?

Ok, I got it to do this:

It powered on, but then shut off again. Within a half second. What could that mean?
