    You need the schematics from the manual of the maker. We cannot guess for you online... And even the same models of comptuers have different wiring schemes depending on where they were on what day on the assembly line.

    They are labeled on the board...

    They are labeled on the computer case...

    All you have to do is connect them as they are labeled - ignore the colors. According to what you've said, it should be as follows:

    Case -------> Board
    Yellow --> Red (Power switch)
    Red --> Orange (HDD light)
    Green --> Green (Power led)
    Blue --> Blue (Reset switch)

    There's no need for 'schematics'. You have labels for everything. And even if you connect the wrong headers, you won't damage anything. The only room for error now is having the headers plugged in upside down, and this doesn't matter for the reset switch and power switches. They will work regardless. If you're HDD and power lights don't work, flip the connector around and try it again.

    Hi, Its been while since Ive toy around with this PC
    today i was reviewing this post, And i agree on giving this another shot,
    So far i follow the advice you give me ^^
    The Power LED, Is connected correctly, When i plug the cord into the CPU & (Switch on the power on the back of the CPU) , the Green Led Light Power's Up. The only problem am having is ACTUALLY POWERING UP THE CPU.
    I have every thing connected According to the post above^^.
    When i Switch the power on & off (Computer switch in the back), the sound card has a light and it flashes green, so am assuming the mother board works correct?

    Possibly Problem?
    The only thing Ive notice is that (The Power SW)(Yellow)
    Has Two Pins to plug into (and on the motherboard it only has one pin entry were it Says PWRSW,) Could that be the problem?
    (The Power Led (Green) has Three Pins to plug into,) So when i plug it in it takes up one RED Pin Entry,) Bare with me , am trying to be as specific as i can,
    -Thanks to for those who help =)
