    The power led is not as important as the "power sw".
    these are comming from the front panel of your case.
    These are colored wires,
    green with white(power sw)-
    red with white(HDD) etc.

    The colored wire is normaly the +positive side, the white is the-negative side.
    These are important for the led lights on the fron panel not the reset and power on switch.

    The image below shows "P" as positive and "N" as negative.
    Look to the numbers on diagram and match with the list to orient the front panel wire correctly.

    Post back if you continue to have trouble.
