Mobo is a winfast 6100k8ma

Got an old pc about 2 months ago but am just wanting to use it now due to the fact that I want it as a spare for the spare bedroom and may be moving locally so I can take this one to new place and that gives me a chance to take 2 or 3 days moving and have a pc at both properties.

Anyway the part I believe to be for the pins looks like a usb part but with thinner pins and not labelled, I had one like this before with another pc(being that its a store made pc) just dont know how to wire it!

they go next to the power switch leads/front led lights etc. hopefully theyre labelled on the board. if not your need the manual.

I just keep trying until I get the power switch usually. When there is no manual.

Trial and error :thumbsup:

If it's power you're trying to find just get a screwdriver and try all the pins with the end until it fires up.

Oops, just saw you put details on.

the standard i believe is this:

+PLED -PLED +PSW -PSW NC NC NC NC
+HDD -HDD -RST +RST +SPK NC NC -SPK

Key:

PLED = Power LED/Message LED
HDD = Hard Drive LED
RST = Reset Switch
PSW = Power Switch
SPK = Speaker
NC = Not connected (sometimes not even there)

Thanks all sorted now, shame I had to reinstall XP anyway on top so it helped even more!
