There will be a diagram of the front panel jumper block in your manual that will tell you the pin designations. And the case manual should tell you which wires are which. (red and black one is probably power switch). r u building a pc? give somemore detail.

RST - reset switch
PW SW - power switch
PW LED - on light
HD LED - hard disk activity light

I can't really offer much advice based on that diagram.

Somewhere on the motherboard will be the manufacturer and model no. Sometimes it is huge across the middle of the board and sometimes it is quite small but it will be on there. post back with it or go to the manufacturers website. Every manual is online these days.

As for the case the wires should be labeled. The labels are usually self explanatory eg SPK = speaker. You say you have a turbo switch? Your MOBO may not support this feature in which case leave it detached.

Hope that helps a bit. No one else seems to be following this thread but I will keep my eye on it.

Thanks for helping, i found out. The "S/B SW" is the power botten. "RESET SW" is of course the reset botten. All of them named "X LED" is for the lights. I don't know where to place the led's and the red and black one were just a speaker. The red lines on my diagram ment that I had to connect those two switches. The "S/B SW" should be the upper one and the "RESET SW" should be placed under it.

But now I've got another problem. I'd installed xp on the harddrive (After farmatting it) and I installed a lot of games and all that stuff, but then i realised, that there were no sound. Well it's a onboard sound card, so i installed the AC'97 AUDIO driver.. Well, it doesn't work. No problems with the driver, i just don't get any sounds. I read in windows help, that it might be caused of, that the sound isn't turned on in BIOS. Well, i simply can't find anything about it in BIOS. But i found something on the board that might help: KT-400A/600 pro. Well, anyone who can help me?
