Question about Foxconn (755A01-6ELRS) (K8S755A6ELRS) Motherboard
Well, i dont know that board specifically, unless its a Giga Byte or Asus or a more popular brand name. but typically, the jumpers are on the bottom right of the board if you are looking at it in the case.
typically the most important one to get first is the power button Pin. The rows are two pins up and say 10 wide.
Now, on my Giga byte Mobo, it has printed in tini, tiny little letters, just below the pins, PS for power switch, RST, for reset switch, HDD for hard drive light, and SPK for speaker.
See if yours has them as it will make things easier.
Most mother boards are the same or simlar and guessing can get you going.
Get the power swicth pin, which is good to start with because there no power to it so nothing will get harmed if you get it wrong.
Pin connectors will usually be two pins together or 2 with a spacer i the middle like for the internal speaker.
Take the Power button Pin and with the words facing away from the board, or down, if the computers laying down, and start from the left pins on the bottom row and test each pair. pluf them in, hit the power button. If it comes on, you got it.
next i would start with the LED light pins such as the HDD LED and try that one. These are low power so you wont have to worry about frying anything.
save the speaker and USB for last, they use more power and can fry the diods.
This is at your own risk of course. I had to do this with my little brothers computer cuz he bought some off brand computer with some junk Mobo and he unplugged them and couldnt figure out how to get them back in.
Most important is gettig the power switch one as this will allow power to use your computer, things like the internal speaker and LED lights can wait as they arent required.
