  1. Ok, as i was switching mi computer off last night, i noticed...fire and smoke billowing from my computer case. Inside the wires which are combined and come from my power button and cpu speaker had ignited...:S

    I tore off the speaker wire to mi jumper block, and couldnt figure out where to put the rest...

    I was wondering if anyone could giv me a link, or picture as to where i need to put the power sw lead 2 pin, and the reset sw lead 2pin ??

    My motherboard is an asus A7N266- VM, and yeh this is really urgent

    thnx in advance :S

    Did You Get The License Number....

    Before we hook things back up, have we determined the cause of the fire?

    NOW ther's a good idea.... :). speaker wire and power switch buttons are usually pretty far from any heat source (at least enough to ignite a wire). Sounds like a surge in the power supply. My guess is it took the MB with it.. Good luck.
