Power LED and power SW go to the front panel header on the board. It should say something like fpanel or F_PANEL next to the header. The tan cords are most likely USB and sound for the front panel, I would suspect the smaller one is the sound.

Most probably one of the cables is USB and other is Audio.
Can you not follow the cables where they go?

You can find some information here: http://support.gateway.com/s/CASES/3507131R/3507131Rfql.shtml

ATX form factor, DDR2 memory, LGA socket 775. Search for that, if you want don't want to purchase a separate video card, make sure it has an integrated graphics chipset.

For example: Gigabyte GA-G41MT

Edit: Isn't this already being discussed in this thread http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic469969.html ?

only 2 slots for ram though, I have 4 1gig's and would like something that will be a direct fit...would this be a replacement?

It might. I can't tell if it has 2 RAM slots or 4, the picture is low quality and there is no product information. The model might be fine but I would suggest looking for it elsewhere.

Just find something on Amazon by searching for "LGA775 Motherboard".

For example, look at this only $14 : http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000E887YY/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&seller=

Do check the specs by googling the model first.

Generally yes. Most processors are designed for a specific type of memory. Although it is uncommon, there are boards that may have the same socket but take a different type of memory.

For that reason, it is best to seek products that list at least the basic specifications.

Your desktop conforms to the ATX standard, so any motherboard listed as ATX, miniATX, or microATX will fit in the case. The vast majority of motherboards fall under one of those three standards.

By specs I meant Google the motherboard model and check -
1. RAM support. Whether it supports DDR2 RAM and how many modules.
2. Whether it supports your processor.
3. Whether it has on board GPU
4. How many SATA ports and which version (SATA1 or SATA2)

etc.

For example, the D915PBL motherboard has LGA775 socket but it does not support Intel E2160 processor. So its not something you can use.
