This is my first mobo change. Im fitting a HP vectra Micro ATX, PIII 370 motherboard. It's all going OK so far, only problem is I've looked through all the manuals online but cannot find the details on how to fit the front panel connections. I'm a little wary about trial and error. If I can't find the information I need, and it's looking like I can't, what are my chances of destroying my replacement mobo??

If anyone has a HP vectra Micro ATX, PIII 370 fitted and have have a quick look at, at least, the power switch, I'd really appreciate it.

well i dont think you can destroy the motherboard by trail and error. there should be a cluster of jumpers somewere that will say like "pwr swch" and pwr led" but its just to hard to read the little print on the mobo, i would get a flashlight.

The board is unmarked for the front panel switches. Probably because the case it's designed for has a proprietary connection block to connect them all at the same time.
