Gateway proprietary motherboard switch connection
Posted on 2006-11-02
We have several Gateway computers that we want to put into rack mount cases. The problem is that Gateway uses its own special connection to the motherboard for the power switch, HD LED etc. All the wires are on one plug instead of seperate like in most cases. We have the rack mount cases but they have seperate wires for the connections. Its an Intel 400762 motherboard.
Is there a way to make this work? I was thinking maybe I could use the seperate wires from the new case and try and figure out what goes where on the motherboard. On the Gateway single plug connector it only uses 5 wires into the plug and they dont seem to correspond to the pins on the motherboard which are labeled but not too clearly.
