    I got my XP problem fixed...but I have a new more serious one

    My new pc arrived and the case was damaged...There is a panel on top with the power button....reset button...usb ports and mircophone plug thing...the plastic which holds it in place snapped...so we had to disconnect those items from the mother board to remove the piece and glue the hooks back

    The wires looked as though it was one big plug into the mother board...it wasnt...each wire split as they came off the mother board...now I dont know where they go???

    I am pretty computer stupid....any help would be appreciated...I understand if I do it wrong I can ruin my machine

    this is my motherboard
    ASUS ASROCK
    939NF4G-SATA2

    thanks in advance

    Look closely at the pins by the motherboard, b/c sometimes its printed to what it goes to. indeed its usually abbreviated, but its there. If not, you wuold want to go to Asus's website and get the manual for the motherboard(or consult google) and see where they go.

    Are the plugs colored? The proper plugs and pins are usually like colored.

    You can look up all the info you need in your motherboard manual - look for "jumpers".

    I found that...Its just a little confusing...

    I have a pwr led line...it has 3 holes...only 2 wires...and only 2 prongs to lay into????

    does it matter upside down or any of that?

    I have the diagram...but am still lost
