    I found the mobo model number. Dell Computer Corp: 02Y832. The connector on the motherboard thats in the dell owners manual is called "control panel connector (J7J2). I bought a new case and the power plugs are all seperate. Ive tried everything to get it to power up, but nothing!

    You can make it work, but you have to know where to plug the power switch. You can use CPUz to tell you what motherboard you have, but you need to power-up first. It's A Intel board and you can download the Intel manual to show you the pin connectors--at least that worked with old Dells.
