When wiring mother boards, they intentionally make all of the plugs different. I would say its a safe bet, that if the wire fits somewhere, thats the right spot. If you come accross wires that could fit in more than one spot, or where more than one wire fits in a spot, then focus on figuring out what those are. If you know what one end is connected to, it should be fairly easy to figure out. As for your power button, that is definately connected to the MOBO, but it shouldnt fit anywhere else.

thanks for all the help everybody, but all the diagrams and reference guides that i've looked at don't have the 3 (prong) power led. all are for 2 (prong). i'm not sure what you call them.

I'm sure my problem is only with the hard drive led, power led, reset, and power sdd....something or other. they all connect to the 9 pin section on the mother board but all with a power led connector with 2 pin opening not 3.

any help with this dilemma will be greatly appreciated.

2 prong is normal for the harddrive led. All the harddrive led is for is the activity light for the front of the pc, you dont even need it pluged in for the pc to work at all. Its just the activity light showing you when the harddrive is being accessed.. To get the pc to actually turn on you only need the power connector plugged in and thats it.. You dont have to have the others plugged in for the pc to turn on at all... The reset connector is for the reset button so you can reset your pc and the speaker button is for the speaker inside of the pc when you boot up the pc and you hear a boot up beep. The speaker gives you error beeps if something is wrong also. The power led is just a light that stays on the whole time your pc is on..

Just look at the reference or manual and put the connectors in the right spot then turn on the pc.
