I will tell you how wire your case front panel, but before that lets test the motherboard to make sure the problem is not the board itself.
Remove all the wire connections to the front panel.
Turn the power on and with a small screw driver or anything that is metal short (touch) the two pins that are the PWR SW. (look at the list of pins I have put at the end)
If the computer turns on then it means the board is ok.
The following information is also availabe in the motherboard manual available from the gogabyte web site download section
On the motherboard next to the battery is the front panel header pins. it looks like
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 i also write them as numbers as well to make it easy for you) 0 0 0 0 0
1 2 3 4 0 0 0 0 5 6 7 8
1 and 2 are message LED. you don't need any connection to this. 3 and 4 are the power switch connections no polarity, just connect the wires 5 and 6 are the hard disk LED. 5 is the positive side (usually red) 7 and 8 are the reset switch. no polarity, just connect the wires. Next to the message LED there is a three pin connection. This is for the power LED.
To solve your puzzle, you need to find the manual for your motherboard. If you don't have it still, almost all of them are available online at the manufacturer's support website. The manual always has the pin out diagram for the motherboard, and from there its just a matter of plugging the small connections together. Remember that connections for LED lights have polarity, meaning that they need hooked up one particular direction for the light to work, but any switch connection doesnt matter.
The hdd red wire gooes to pin #1 the hdd white wire goes to pin #3 the power sw orange wire goes to pin #6 the power sw white wire goes to pin #8 The reset sw blue wire goes to pin #7 the reset sw white wire goes to pin #5 the power led green wire goes to pin #2 the power led white wire goes to pin #4.
Now the layout of the pins is the long row (5) pins are the odd number pins 9 being the odd one and 1 is the other end of the row. 2 through 8 start at the pin accross from 1 : : : : . I hope this helps you.
Those are really tricky and always vary from motherboard to motherboard. without the exact model no one will be able to tell you exactly. But I'd recommend that you start out with the power (pw) plug and try trial and error. The only ones really necessary are the pw and reset. the only 2 that are polarity sensitive are the HDD light and pw led.
i need to know the motherboard's serial number then shouldn't be a problem finding the service manual for it with all the information you require
some motherboards got that information imprinted near the pins if you look close enough
