I just replaced my motherboard and the plug ( for the front pannel button ) is different fron the motherboard plug.
I need a wiring color-code diagram, fot that thing, so i can wire up my front pannel button. I talked with
someone who gave me a link (http://h10025.www1.h...&cc=us&dlc=en
c=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN) which didnt have what i need.I need something that will tell me what each collor of
wire goes to, on the front pannel plug; that plugs to the motherboard. The HP has 7 wires and only one way to
plug to the botherboard. By new motherboard has 20 pins and each one is identified, on the owners manual. none of
the wires are identified, on my HP front pannel plug. If I knew what each wire went to, I wold have no problem
connecting them. HP knows nothing about color coding...lol.
Any help wold be appreciated. Thanks :whistling:

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. This is something that you may not find good documentation for at HP, but it is worth a try. Take a look at http://www.shopping....eName=seriescan
There is lots of documentation, including product manuals. If you can't find what you are looking for there, you will need to identify the wires by physical inspection, trace them back and identify what they connect to. Then you can translate that to match your motherboard documentation. Not easy, but it can be done. I once had a case with absolutely no documentation that needed to be connected to the motherboard. I had to trace each wire back and identify what it connected to in order to make the proper connection at the motherboard. It CAN be done.
