Hi there,

Recently, I come home to find my little brother had broken my PC with little explanation, so, out of another PC I had lying around, I took the motherboard and fitted it into my PC, wired everything up, fitted the hard drives, and so on.

The only problem I found was the front panel connectors, I connected them in the way that the Intel website suggested, but, still, I had no power. The only sign of power I do have is a flashing light on the motherboard, which I am not sure what this is trying to tell me; it flashes green constantly.

This is an Intel D865GLC Motherboard.

Please try to help soon!

Oh, and if you're wondering, i'm using a friend's laptop at the moment!

Thanks,

Jay

Go to Intel's support site and download the motherboard manual. In the diagrams, look for the front panel header. note which 2 pins are marked pwr. You should be able to take a flat blade screwdriver and touch those 2 pins, shorting them momentarily and the computer should power up. You now know that the computer works and all you have to do is trace which 2 wires from the front bezel go to the switch. For the switch it doesn't matter what color goes where
