Hello.

I have purchased a new motherboard because old one broke.

I am now getting errors on startup:
Error 917  "Front audio not connected"

Error 918 "Front usb not connected"

 

The real issue is that i don't have "Front audio" to connect to the board :(.

Also the usb connector are 2x 1 cable with 4 pin sticks. As far as i know i need 10(1 empty) pin cable to clear the error.

Your post is a bit vague.

 

Where are you seeing the error? When Windows loads? Did you install a fresh copy of Windows after you replaced the motherboard, or did you just plug in the same hard drive and expect it to work as before?

First thing that i see on computer is motherboard icon "HP"

Second thing i see is the errors (So i am guessing its in bios?)

I did not install a fresh copy of windows and i expect it to work.

 

Everything works fine until i try to boot the windows, as soon as i issue it the computer restarts automatically.

The errors are BIOS, not Windows .

 

 Post the part number of the new motherboard please, since just about all 'boards are unique and come with their own issues.

Only thing there is :

Instaled fresh windows, it gets up and running but!

The error for USB and Audio not being connected is still there

I have pins like this 8x of them

Quite a few motherboards are like the one in the picture you posted, and actually a have a legend printed on to the board next to where the jumpers are.  If yours doesn't then read the manual that came with it.  If you bought it without a manual, you will need to figure out the model number or it's very hard to help you.

 

edit: Also, HP do have a tech support forum.  I'm sure they can help you identify your motherboard.

The image was posted to represent the pins i have. I have connected then appropriately but i still get error.

By pins i mean the plastic sqare thing that goes onto pin(gnd, data+, data-, 5v)

Just a note - all 'boards have a part number printed on them somewhere, unfortunately they can be hard to spot.

The only thing i was able to spot that made sense
"hp 2004 © hpdc hp engineering." It was printed in a square and didn't stand out

I have checked other motherboards and its pretty easy to spot on them.

Usually the front usb/audio cables are supplied by your case, which is of a different manufacturer from your mb.  What I have seen in the past is the front usb/audio cables are usually individual connectors, not an 8x2 connectors as your MB conveniently expected.  You need to wire them manually, plugging the right connectors to the right pins.

 

How do you know which pins to plug?  Look up your motherboard manual, OR right on your motherboard, next to the pins.  They have labels to show which pins correspond to what.  Look at the image that you posted, there's a table right next to it that says "FRONT PANEL" and "FRONT PANEL AUDIO CONFIG".  Decipher it, and you should be good to go.

 

If still broken, probably your new MB is broken.  Check your BIOS to see if you can disable the front audio/usb to get rid of the annoying errors.

Probably the best bet is to disable those front ports in the BIOS to eliminate the error messages. You might be able to either replace the proprietary front-ports of your case with ones using a standard connection, or to re-wire them if you're feeling really industrious -- be careful if you try to re-wire them though, firstly because mixing up power and signal wires could damage the computer or a device that you connect, and second because sometimes those proprietary connections are proprietary because there's actually more going on than just passing power and signals through -- make sure you know what you're dealing with.

 

If you replace the ports with standard ones, you might be able to mount them in place of your case's ports, or you might have to give up a 3.5" drive slot. Or, you're handy with a Dremel tool and you can mount them wherever you want biggrin.png

To post some stuff i have done so far:

1: Ive fixed the usb error.

I have 8 pings ( 2x ground) (2x +data) (2x -data) (2x 5v)
the motherboard layout is not defined but i was looking on images and stuff and i "just" plug it like this

x = no pin to connect to, empty seat

+ = +data

- = -data

n = no connect

v = 5v

g = ground

e = empty

 

First i tried

x g + - v

e g + - v

because this is the way it is supposed to go by...

Then i tried to ground the "No connect" pin on the motherboard because f**k dry.png MANUAL the "no connect" means it needs to be grounded right? OFC!

So i did

x g + - v

g e + - v

And the front panel USB now actually works and there is no error displayed.

Both of the usb work... i know the manual rox... good there are some tech forum i read it on, id give credit but its far lost in search sad.png .

 

2: I still didn't figure out the audio layout its different them most ones i see and i don't want to burn the motherboard i got a low pay and i am living in crumbling house so i need for repairs + winter.
