    Most motherboards come with a manual. He said he lost his info ****! I am having the same problem because I too lost my info. I took pictures and hooked everything up right, but no power. I took it to my computer guy, he checked it and said the powere supply didn't work, so I exchanged it (same type-new for new) but am having the same problem. Anyine know where to get schematics? Are there issues with the power supply being too strong for the board, even though it said they were compatible...?

Look for a set of pins ....about 14 of them all together in 2 need to look on the board around those pins....there should be abreviations eg pwr for power etc.....should indicate where each connector goes.....usually very small writing so make sure you have good light
