Installing windows 8 on Samsung 840 evo vs the sata-usb cable - Page 2

post #11 of 15
If you give us the motherboard mfg. and model number I'd be happy to pull a copy of the user's manual and look at the FP pin configuration and walk you through it.

I have the gigabyte h77n and my case is the bitfenix prodigy
post #13 of 15
The Bitfenix Prodigy has the following front panel connectors;

Power button
Reset button
Headphone jack
Microphone jack
USB 3.0 ports

Your motherboard has the following front panel connectors and ports;

Power switch
HDD activity
Reset switch
Message / sleep LED
Front panel audio
Front panel USB 3.0

Proper assignment of the various case wires to the appropriate places on the motherboard can be found beginning in Section 1-7 Internal Connectors (beginning on page 21) of your users manual.

Your case and your motherboard have all the necessary connections to mate together.

Here is an illustration of the front panel motherboard connections for; power switch, hdd activity, reset switch, message / sleep LED.



For the power on/off and reset switches it doesn't matter whether you mix up the positive or negative leads - they will work regardless. The only two connections that require the correct polarity of the wires is for the HDD Led and the Message / sleep LED.

If I recollect the BF Prodigy doesn't use +/- signs on the wires, but uses an unmarked black wire, and a marked black wire that has a white triangle on the connector. I think that indicates the positive wire. Connect them like that first, and if the lights don't work, just switch them around and make a note for future reference.

OK, so I've plugged everything in but my PC isnt booting on.

Im getting worried now
post #15 of 15
No power to anything when you press the power switch on the case?

Does your power supply have an on/off rocker on the back? If so are you sure it is switched to the "on" position?

Have you made sure that the AC plug is inserted firmly into the back of the power supply and also connected firmly in the wall socket?

Are all power supply connections attached to the motherboard? ATX, CPU, Aux etc.?

If you've already checked all of the above, we will need to determine whether you're power supply is faulty, whether you have properly connected the front panel wiring or whether there is something else that has gone wrong.

1. Power supply check - disconnect all power supply leads from the motherboard. Connect one fan to a molex lead on the power supply. Jump start the power supply and see if it turns on.

If power supply turns on proceed to step two;

2. Case switch - unplug the front panel power switch wires and check switch with multimeter
3. If you don't have a multimeter we can check from the other side. Reconnect all power supply connectors to the motherboard, Turn on power supply. Jump the +/- power switch posts on the motherboard front panel connector and see if everything powers on

Last, if power supply powers on, and case switch checks out ok, but motherboard still wont power on - pull everything out of the case and set on a static free, non-conductive surface. Do a minimal hardware build outside the case and see if things will power up. If things power up outside the case, check for grounding issues between the motherboard or case. It could be a motherboard standoff in the wrong place, a burr of metal on the motherboard tray, or any thing else that might be grounding the motherboard to the case.

What power supply do you have?
