Thread: ibm motherboard f-panel connections

    ibm motherboard f-panel connections

    Hey guys,
    Need a little help locating a manual for the default motherboard inside of the IBM Netvista 8305-43u Desktop PC.I have had this PC for some time but i never used the thing.The original case was damaged & i want to install in a new case i have. However i can't seem to locate a manual showing the layout of the connector pins for the front panel controls (HDD Led,Power LED,Reset button,Power Button,ect) The original case has a 1 piece connector made especially for this motherboard but it doesnt have anything on the board itself to indicate which pins are for the power switch, Reset, ect.
    So if anyone happens to know please post, Many Thanks in advance!!

    Board has this info on it
    IBM Rev 1.2

    Hi Azzey,

    Thanks but i've already trawled these docs looking for the motherboard f-panel pin layout. All that is given is on page 31 which doesnt specify which individual pins are to be used.

    The following illustration shows the locations of parts on the system board.
    1 Microprocessor 9 Battery
    2 DIMM connector 1 10Clear CMOS/Recovery jumper
    3 DIMM connector 2 11SCSI LED connector
    4 Power connector 12PCI slots
    5 Diskette drive connector 13Front panel audio connector
    6 Primary IDE connector 14CD-ROM audio connector
    7 Front panel connector 15AGP slot (some models)
    8 Secondary IDE connector 16Serial connector
