I have a motherboard I salvaged from a pre-assembled computer. Except now I'm trying to use it in my own custom build. The problem is, this motherboard doesn't have any documentation because it was never meant to be used by consumers (as far as I know).
I need to plug in my case's power/reset/hdd-light plugs into the motherboard. I usually check the documentation of the board to see which leads go to what connector, but I have no documentation for the board.
So, as I see it, I have two options:
- I find the documentation (I've emailed gateway customer service, but I'm unsure of how successful I'll be with that).
- I simply test the leads one after the other (can this cause damage if plugged into the wrong leads?)
However, there might even be a standard for which leads do what action (I'm not sure about this).
For reference, my motherboard's SN/MD (?) is:
Does anyone have any idea if I can find documentation or find another way to be sure if my connections are correct?
This is crappy picture of the leads:
