Hello, I have just recently installed a motherboard into a different case. I took the motherboard out of a case and put it into another. I connected the power cable to what LOOKED like the power cable slot-thingy (I don't know terms) and the power light turned on, but the computer still remained off. I also tried plugging the cable into different areas, but that didn't work eather. I will attach pictures of the cable, and the model of the motherboard is an ASUS P4SD. Thanks in advance.

Assumtions.

The blue connector is the power/LED/HD activity connector on a new OEM case? The blue connector is not to the front panel USB?

You are installing an OEM board from one OEM into the case of a different OEM?

Im sorry, I don't quite understand what your saying :/ I don't know a lot of terms here, are you saying you think the blue cord is just the lights? because I have another cord just the same that's black.

The motherboard manual...will indicate the different front panel pin settings.

For a generic look, take a look at some illustrations (36, 37, etc.) at http://www.daileyint.com/build/ibuild5.htm but the motherboard manual will be a better source.

See diagram 12 at http://www.manualowl.com/m/Asus/P4SD/Manual/211203 .

i was looking at the diagram, and the pins dont look the same on my motherboard, but everything else does. im attaching a picture of the pins on my MOBO. If the picture isnt clear enough, i can probably get a different camera.
