While working inside my computer, i accidentally disconnected the wires to the front panel power switch, reset button, and LED's.  I tried reconnecting them myself, but then the machine wouldn't start.  To avoid doing any damage i decided to ask for help.  If someone can help me connect them properly, i'd appreciate it.  I also posted pictures in tumblr as a guide.

It's a Gigabyte mobo, GA-M57SLI-S4, AMD Socket AM2.  I checked the user's manual, but it didn't really help.

 

Thanks,

Go here http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2383&dl=1#ov .

Select "CPU memory support & downloads"

Next to Download Type... select "Manual"

That's the installation manual, and it has the connector assignments.

Thanks, Elfbane.  I went to this link about 6 hours ago and tried to DL the PDF, but this stupid laptop i've been forced to use couldn't handle the load.  I made some adjustments to speed up the transfer rate and just tried to do it again, and now i get an error message that the "URL is invalid".

I'm clicking other links on the main site and getting more "URL invalid" errors.  Seems very strange.  Would you consider downloading the manual and emailing it to me?

I downloaded the PDF and cut out the relevant portion. It's in chinese/japanese/korean/klingon but you get the idea.

 

Once you get the connectors in it should start up. If it doesn't, turn the connectors 180 degrees and try again.
