You need to check your wiring. I suspect you do not have the led wires connected properly. Check the documentation that came with the case (if any). It may be necessary to just identify the led on the front, locate the wire and then make sure it is connected to the proper pins on the motherboard. Refer to the motherboard manual for this.

Ok. Just rely on the motherboard manual. That should get you what you need. Just trace the wires back from the LED and make sure they are on the correct pin. If you don't have a motherboard manual, go to the manufacturers web page and download one. I recently put together a system and was amazed I got it right with so little documentation. My eyesight ain't so good so I had to use a magnifying class to make sure the pins were the right ones.
