The colors don't matter on the power switch as it is just shorting out and in turn, signaling the computer to start.

The hard drive LEDs have neg and pos but if you get them wrong, the most that would happen is that the LED would not light. Then you just swap the wires.

I have on occasion taken a different switch, that fits on the pins, and spliced it to the front power switch.

Good luck.

What motherboard and what power supply wattage?

Sometimes its cheaper to get a new case with the adequate power supply for about 50 bucks than to mess with an old one
In the beginning there was the command line.

ok that worked but now I cant get anything to show on the monitor through the pci video card so since the new motherboard dosent have a monitor cable port I figured it used agp graphics so I went and bought a agp video card plugged it in and still cant get anything on the monitor I am very frustrated and $300 out of pocket

Have you a PCI video card? I always keep one handy, for testing. It can come from an old build as long as you are sure it was working. Put that in your motherboard and see if you can get video.

I didn't see a manual on the Soyo site but I did see that there are a bunch of drivers, for everything.

You would also want to test the new AGP card in a known, working computer before you give it up for dead. There isn't anything that should have killed it.

its a brand new video card so I hope it works, it just wont show anything on the new motherboard any ideas on how I can get the motherboard to show anything, Ive tried two differant video cards and both wont show anything. I cant see the screens to put the install disks in to install the agp one but the pci was already installed on the old machine before the motherboard change

I dont know what to do to be able to even get to a bios screen much less to the desktop, monitors wont show anything but the computer is running. So the new motherboard works which is good. but if I cant get a video signal to my monitor I cant see what its doing.

You shouldn't need to install the AGP drivers yet. It will default to standard VGA.

If this is a brand new motherboard, you need to get them involved. If you can be sure the video cards are good, you need to investigate what condition is NOT being met in order for the motherboard to talk to the video card. I couldn't find a manual on the Soyo site, just drivers.

How about you? Have you found an on-line manual anywhere?

Make sure you insulate All of the bare connectors, if any of them short out it will cause the computer to not post correctly. I have personally experienced this, You can use liquid electrical tape, or liquid band aid will work too. Be careful what you get it on though.
