I only see power cord,a fan jumper and probably some connections for the front of case switches. Are there any marking on the cords?

This is an A8N-SLI mobo layout. You should be able to determine the connections here.

Those cables go to the front panel of the case. Power switches, lights and they should have some letters on them, what are they.. You still cannot open the mobo image to see pages 38, 37 & 36 ?

No that came with my mobo. The cables are labeled HDD LED, VCC USB2- USB2+ GND, VCC USB1- USB1+ GND and one isnt labeled.

HDD LED goes the same place as the SPEAKER, POWER SW, RESET and POWER LED. Sometimes it is also called IDE LED.

The USB cables go to any onboard USB connectors you may have.

You should be able to find it all in the motherboards manual.

The motherboard manual should have a diagram showing which pins are for what. Generally, if you plug the LED for the hard disk into the correct plugs but it doesn't light, you may have the polarity backwards, so switch them around and see if that works. There should be pins to plug the Power Switch, Reset Switch, HDD light, Power Light, and so on. USB usually has a missing pin on the plug so you can plug it correctly.

I hear what you're saying - most importantly, make sure you connect the SPEAKER, POWER SW, RESET, HDD LED and POWER LED firstly (like Mr Alpha said), coz they are the important ones.
I had the same dramas with my Gigabyte MB. The USB cables for the front panel are broken down into each separate connection pin(s).
Go to page 1-24 (Chapter 1) (or Page 34 of 88). The three blue connectors (without the shroud) identified in the diagram are your USB connections. The one with the shroud is your Com port. Now in the diagram (to the right) it shows what each pin means for example :

USB+5V, USB+5V, USB_P7-, USB_P8-, USB_P7+, USB_P8+, GND, GND and NC.

For the connections you have from the case front panel to these connections, it equates as follows:

VCC = USB+5V (Doesn't matter which)
USB2- = USB_P8-
USB2+ = USB_P8+
USB1- = USB_7-
USB1+ = USB_7+
GND = GND (Doesn't matter which)

The 1 and 2 represent each of the USB connections on the front panel (am I right that there is two USB holes?) so they have just broken the plugs down. It is fiddley, but all you need to do is plug each one onto the correct pin (as above)

Good luck, and I hope that helps....
