Dell Inspiron 570 case upgrade

Jump to solution

I have recently upgraded my case to a cooler master storm scout, everything fits and works great except for the power and reset switch. I don't know which pins go to which cable. The mobo I believe is a MA785r, that is what is on the motherboard. If anyone knows what pins I need to connect please let me know. Also I will post picture when I get home tonight to better explain.

OK, I am here.

Unfortunately I could not solve this question completely, yes you can connect any case to Dell Inspiron 570 MT motherboard 04GJJT, this is easy once you know connector setup, which I will show below, however there is one annoying problem - every time, at each boot I got this message

Alert! Front panel not detected.

Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run setup utility.

And I cannot find the way to fix it. So I just press F1 on each boot, sometimes it boots fast, sometimes slow, I really hate it, but can not find any other solutions.

So, let me show power connector wire setup, please excuse me for my handwriting it is ugly.

This is number 12 from above shown diagram of our motherboard, and next is our front panel connector whose wire colors are shown on my picture.

See if you can understand what I mean.

You just take corresponding wires from CM and plug them in according to my first picture, very easy, just pay attention to NO PIN location so you see how you can apply this information.

I hope Dell can provide some help here, but I am not sure if they know this themselves.

Here are the connectors that go to the front panel for Power on/off, reset, hard drive light, and power light

   

I just need to know what goes where on the motherboard (Front Panel Connector (LEDH1)). I've read that the reset switch will NOT work on this MOBO but i'm not sure if that is true. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated, at worst i just have to open my case to push the stock on/off switch that came with the 570

Hi SobeNirvana,

Thanks for providing us this information.  I would like to inform you that on our motherboard Front Panel Connector is at number 12 on the above image.

As you have replaced the motherboard it might be different on your system. Kindly refer to manual or documentation that came with the motherboard.

And if the motherboard doesn't support the power switch then it would be better if you don't install it, as it may cause damage to the system.

If you have any further queries, please feel free to contact us.

Thanks and Regards

As OP mentioned - motherboard was not replaced! Computer case was replaced. Dell doesn't have RESET button, so this one is extra.
