I swapped out my Asus P5N-D with another from the manufacturer. After installing it I connected the 4-pin connector (right beside the cpu), the POWER SW cable, and the 24-pin connector and am still getting no power or response when hitting the power button. My motherboard's green light is on and indicating that it is getting power, but what am I doing wrong? Help!

Did you connect the front panel power connector to the motherboard? Otherwise the power button won't be connected to anything.

There is a thick gray cable that is bundles with the HDD_LED and POWER SW cables that is connected to an adapter that is labeled AC'97/HD Audio, but that is the only other cable I see that is bundled with those. What does the cable you're referring to look like? I assumed the POWER SW cable was the only thing that effected the power button

Yes, you are correct - sorry my browser didn't display your post correctly and I missed the bit that said you connected the POWER SW. The other cable sounds like the front audio connector. It seems the right cables are connected. If your motherboard is definitely getting the right power then I would just double check all the connectors esp. check the POWER SW cable is connected properly.

So if the 24-pin power, 4-pin power, and POWER SW are all connected properly and still not powering on, then what would the problem be? I'm stumped myself here.

The front header block is bottom right on the Mobo, there should be a diagram in the motherboard manual. Make sure to connect to the power switch and Not the power led. In that bundle of cables there will also be a reset plug, they can connect any way round BUT, the hard drive activity led, system power led and system speaker plugs go on with the + posative wire goes to the + pin one.

If no luck, post back.
