I need the diagram that shows me how to reconnect the power LED, the reset, the speaker, and power switch connectors/cables to the Micron ATX motherboard. Can someone point me to the source or provide a link to a pdf?

Re: Connecting power LED, reset, speaker, etc to micron...
Could it be that Micron no longer makes or supports motherboards? You could try a search on the model number, but also look closely at the board for markings for the connectors. When I can't find info I simply start with the power switch connector and use trial and error to get the rest connected and the right direction (an LED won't light if plugged in backwards) - also make sure your using the front panel header and not a USB header!

The various wires from the case front panel should be labeled to indicate power LED, HD LED, etc. The motherboard front panel jumper pins should be grouped together and the pins should be labeled to indicate PWR, HD. RST etc. You can go to the motherboard manufacture's WEB site to download a diagram of your model motherboard and it will show all the locations of the connecting pins.
If you look closely at the motherboard the pinouts are there. I have always had to play with the reset and power pins and by this I mean that if they don't work right then turn them around. I have also had to put the cable marked reset on the pins marked power. The others are marked (hdd led). I have found this to be true with all dell machines.
On a computer mainboard there are usually a number of connecting pins right next to one another called RESET, POWER LED, HD LED etc. The power led often leads to the green LED next your power button to show that the juice is available and on. The cable that leads to the red LED is usually the HD LED which shows that a disk drive is being accessed. Since the red LED is active, one of your disks is probably being accessed and that's where the problem is. Either the disk is damaged, the cable is still not inserted properly or the bios is having problems identifying one of your disk drives.
1) Power the computer off. Take the power cable out. Make sure that you are grounded (have no static charge on your body). Take all of the cables between your mainboard and your disk drives off. 2) Plug in one of your disk drives, reconnect the power cable, switch the power on and watch the monitor. If all goes well you will see that the bios has recognized the disk drive and will simply display a message that the operating system for example isn't available or no harddisk drive is present (if you connected something other than a harddisk drive). 3) repeat this process with the other drives, powering the pc completely off each time and then adding a new disk drive. 4) once you've reached the point where the red LED drive is displayed but no message is available, you've found the culprit that is keeping your pc from booting properly. Hopefully the cable has just been stuck on improperly or the cable is damaged (Check it), rather than you having disk drive damage.
Assuming that the computer is laying down on it's right side, and you are viewing the F panel (the front panel header) from the right side of the motherboard (the bottom of the computer), pin 1 is on the bottom left of the F panel, pin 2 is on the top left, pin 9 is on the lower right, and pin 10 is on the top right (no actual pin)...
1 HD_LED_P Hard disk LED (+) 2 FP PWR/SLP *MSG LED (+)
3 HD_LED_N Hard disk LED (-)
5 RST_SW_N Reset Switch (-)
7 RST_SW_P Reset Switch (+)
9 RSVD Reserved
4 FP PWR/SLP *MSG LED (-)
6 PWR_SW_P Power Switch (+)
8 PWR_SW_N Power Switch (-)
10 Key No pin
Usually the wires and the pins are color coded, (the colored ones being positive.) Sometimes the connections are written in very small abbreviations on the motherboard.

it says for the front panel switches
attach the power led,empi,speakers,power and reset switch connectors to corresponding pins. If you enable suspend mode item in bios setup the acpi and power led will keep flashing while the system is in suspend mode
locate the power switch cable from your atx housing. It is a 2 pin female connector from the housing front panel. Plug this connector to the soft connector marked spwr
there is a diagram to show you how to hook it up if you need anymore hesitate plz give me a shout and i willl be able to assist you more
