I have a bad power switch in a Nobilis computer with a Asus K7M motherboard. The wires accidently were pulled, the little speaker, the LCD, power and reset. I'm trying to find a picture/diagram to show me how to plug the 'doohickeys' back onto the mb. Thanks, Linda

First, go to the microsoft Windows Compatability list and see if your motherboard (computer) and monitor are compatible with the operating system you have ... which you dont identify ... if your hardware is listed for your operating system ... look for special instructions ... follow them ...
Oh yea ... go to the device manager ... if there is anything listed there ... delete it.
Get the new drivers which should self install. If there are no special instructions ... you will go to the manufacturers web site (in the case of your computer ... www.asus.com/support) and/or your monitor manufacturer.
1. Check that the cpu fan is properly connected to the correct port marked CPU FAN.
2. Make sure the power cables are connected correctly to the motherboard.
3. Test the button switch with a multi-tester to make sure that it tests good.
4. Make sure the power switch is connected to the correct pins on the motherboard.
5. With the computer off pop the cr2032 battery out and pop it back in after a few minutes.
6. Test the power supply with either another motherboard or a power supply tester.
7. Test the motherboard with another power supply.
8. If all else fails replace the motherboard I have had a bad one from time to time even out of the box, and if you have a spare cpu you may want to test with that also. Cpu's hardly ever go bad I think I have had two go bad ever, not counting power surges and storm damage.
When you turn on your computer, can you hear the bios "bleep". If you don't then press the reset button and your computer should boot up normally. If this doesn't work, then your replacement switch may be faulty. If you're replacement switch is not exactly the same then you may have the wires in the wrong lugs.
