Hi, and welcome to Geeks 2 Go!!!

Interesting how they name their models. Ok can you take a picture of the mobo of where the connectors are? Because I can't find a link to the mobo anywhere.

I just happen to have a E-machine T2642 computer here that died. Yes, they do use the Imperial MB's and there is only one power switch on them. No reset switch and just 3 pairs of wires coming from the front panel on mine. power switch, LED power light and LED HD light. So i think you will be ok to plug a front power switch to the pins you call DC/SW.

Unfortunately these MB's are not known for reliabilityand i have taken 4 of these e-machine computer and rebuilt them with better power supplys and newer, better motherboards. Only thing that really good on them is they have good, strong, nice sized cases. I toss everything else out when i rebuild them( including the MB).
