Re: I need the diagram for the pwr sw leds reset sw
On the motherboard if there is the pin setup section that you plug them into it will indicate what each pin is for. it may not be the same as your old one but will be basicaly the same setup with + & - connections for the hard drive light ,power light , power on/off, speaker ect...

if colours don,t match up. your main connectors hdd/pwr/reset remove the front panel on the computer. and check from the switches located on the front panel. or you could use a multimeter and test for continuity. if you have one.
you should have green/white red/white orange/white Or blue white.
You don't say what case you are using. If it is proprietary and the front panel header is all in one connector, you can carefully back the connector pins out of the block using precision screwdrivers. I keep a bunch of two pin connectors from junked machines so I can create individual connector sets when changing motherboards (eg, PWR SW, PWR LED, HDD LED and RESET). This also requires that you know the pinouts of both the old board and the new one so you can get everything connected properly.
Very doubtful you will ever find an adapter to change from one front panel block to another.
The 9-pin connector probably uses a spacer pin between the legs of the PWR LED, while it seems the 6-pin does not have RESET.
Pin arrangment is Industry Standard Architecture.....
pwr led pwr sw N/C
X X X X O
X X X X O
hdd rst N/C
translated this is top row left to right ...... power led, power switch no connection
Bottom row is left to right........ hard drive, reset, no connection
Note: not all computer cases have a reset button, also the connectors for power led and hard drive produce a light, if the light does not show, power off the pc swithc the cable rooun 180deg on the connector pins and reconnect.
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
