where to plug led swich on motherboard ms-7103

There usually is a group of gold-coloured pins, diagonally opposite from the corner where the keyboard/mouse connectors are,
arranged in a "two-by-many" rectangle of rows and columns.

Look for either a "HD LED" or "PWR LED" label.
Connect the LED leads to connect one pin from the "top" row to one pin on the "bottom" row.

Havimg prob with the 2 usb ports located in front

Hi manky, Normally front USB ports have a pair of 4 wire cable with connectors marked red wire is vcc; white wire is -D; green wire is +D; and black wire is gnd. The motherboard would normally have two pairs of dual pin connectors that would be sitting side by side or in-line with uneven pins - 4 and 5 pins; then another 4 and 5 pins. Please refer to the attached simple diagram for your connection. For some reason I couldn't get hold of a manual from the Gigabyte site of your particular model GA-81KHXT. Nonetheless hopes this works for you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.
