    The 4pin connector goes 1st and then the 20pin over it. You will notice a little piece on the right side of the 20pin that is preventing the 4pin going fully in. You have to align them first and them plug them together in the motherboard.

    Helios 300 and Nitro 5 users DO NOT update the BIOS to version 1.22 if you don't want the keyboard's backlight to turn off after 30 seconds even when the device is plugged in.

    sorry but what do you mean by insert the four pin first. I try to move it put both wires are connected together so I can't twist it around as it won't reach. Do you mean attach the four pin and the 20 together and put them in? Or connect the four pin from where it's positioned first then the 20 pin.


    I assumed you meant the four pin has to be on the right side. Not sure

  • ven98ven98 ACE Posts: 4,076 Pathfinder
    From the right side means the right side on the picture. I think plugging the 4pin and then 20pin should work, but if it doesn't, align them and plug them in together, there is nothing hard about that. The way you have connected the 24pin to the mobo is the correct way.

    I plugged it fully in but it's not working. Could the motherboard have died.

    Did you check if the switch at the back of the PSU is on?

    Yep. The switch on the power supply was on
  • ven98ven98 ACE Posts: 4,076 Pathfinder
    Did you connect any wires from the case to F-panel. For example a 2pin reset connector, 2pin power on connector, led+ and led- connectors, did you do those?

    It says power button LED connector. Is it that?

    Yes they connect to number 8, but you have to connect each on a specific pin.

    Is that something I can look up or is it different from mobo to mobo
  • ven98ven98 ACE Posts: 4,076 Pathfinder
    Usually the front panel connectors of the motherboard are placed the same on every motherboard, but sometimes for OEM motherboards they could be placed differently, so let me check.

    Ok, it seems that the front panel has the same layout as the other mobos.
    Red squares is the LED connectors. The one from the end is the +. The green ones are for the power button(PW). For the rest of the connections follow this layout:
    The part that is crossed out doesn't apply for the Acer motherboard. Hopefully, the reset switch is on the same place on the Acer motherboard as in the diagram. If it isn't, then you have to go without reset switch.
