I have a ThinkCentre M55 8808-CM8 and in the very part of the upper left corner is a USB header.
Here are 2 images.
A close up one.
And zoomed out one also showing the riser slot.
The images show that right next to the USB header is a JP6 which to me from past experience means Jumper 6. My question is this. Do I need too short this jumper before the USB header will work? I don’t have a motherboard manual for this system and the ones on Lenovo support site don't even mention anything about a USB header. I plugged in a USB bracket that goes in a card slot and connected it to the header and got no response on any USB device i plugged in there. I'm afraid i may fry the board unless I’m absolutely sure that JP6 needs to be shorted for the header to work.
Thanks in advance for any info. If anyone knows of a more detailed manual for this board that would also help. Thanks!

I don't understand why there is a USB header and it is not working. I have 2 computers exactly the same and it doesnt work on either one. Anyone know of a specific motherboard manual for this pc with the USB header identified? All I can say is that on the board it says Bristol-A Rev 3.3 (second pic above).

The second graphic HERE shows the pinout for 12-pin headers. JP6 does mean jumper #6, but it refers to the entire header, not just that one pin.
The second graphic in the link is not what I have. On my header pin 2 is marked on the same side as the rest of the 5 pins for the 12 pin usb header. On the graphic it shows pin 2 on the side with the other 4 pins and the last one missing.
