Remove the front panel of the cpu for cleaning but somehow the connections of the front switches were pulled out the sockets(power, restart,hdd led and the other says+ the other-) pls help me put it back in its right terminals in the board thanks

1. There are 8 wires from the front panel's casing, excluding USB connectors and front audio cable.
2. Just plug the front panel switch headers to the F_Panel main board connectors. 1 & 2 are positive, if the led do not light change polarity but Im sure it will. Note:The mainboard provides a front panel connector for electrical connection to the front panel switches and LEDs. JFP1 is compliant with Intel® Front Panel I/O Connectivity Design Guide. Hopefully this information helps.
All I read properly .Please remove power supply from HDD and CD /DVD RW. If you face the same problem Open the mother board on a open place and try it again ,because there are some particles witch has made the short sercit in your M. Board.Cgeack all voldage socket plkaced properly,MAY BE CAN SILLY MISTAKE FOR 4 pin socket .
If you face same problem please install in another mother board .Post me please imediate next result.
Have you checked the power supply in different system? If yes then first replace CMOS battery and switch the CMOS battery jumper. And while doing this please unplug the hard disk or optical drive data cables and power. If it does not work then check the power switch is working or not or it is perfectly connected with the front panel PINS on the motherboard. If it is not connected perfectly computer will not start after pressing power button.
Second Level Test : Remove the CPU Fan - replace the CPU perfectly - again place the Fan.
Third Level (motherboard test): Just take the motherboard removing CPU,RAM, SMPS - use another same type CPU, RAM and SMPS - if it does not work so it is motherboard problem. If it works may be CPU problem.
You don't have the power switch connected where it belongs. There's one set of pins where all the front panel connections go. This information is from the manual for this board, available from Intel here.
My recommendations would be to remove all connections to the board.
Remove the CMOS battery.
Remove the CPU fan and CPU.
Look at the top of the CPU, if you have a crust over the top of the CPU, you will need to remove it to a clean surface.
Next, your CPU fan should be a 3 wire connection on the motherboard, within two inchs of the CPU holder.
After cleaning the CPU, re-inseart and apply a heat sink lub for good heat transfer.
Re-install CPU fan and plug in to board connection.
Re-install your CMOS battery and power up unit.
With the CMOS battery removed, the time and date will need to be reset.
Also, in the BIOS for that board, you should be able to see temps. and rpm readings. ??
Hope the CPU has not taken a dump on you.!
Before you plug in the drives and other devices, check temps. rpm and voltages.
Have fun, hope this has helped you.
try and find the installation manual for the exact model of system board and verify if the front panel connectors on the system board have been connected correctly. i suspect you might have inversed the power btn and power led cables. if this is not the case, then you might want to reset your power management settings in the BIOS setup.
The mother board name would be helpful. The name of the computer also.
A quite a few things can be the problem here. The mother board could be bad with something wrong on it. The memory should be checked. Possible problem or defective CPU can also cause this kind of problem. Not to be overlooked would be a possible problem with one of the cards. So... I would recommend (with power off and cord removed from power supply) for you to remove all cards. Try by turning on the computer. If at this point you get no power as you did at the beginning, then you need to check the CPU by either using another one (if possible) or have a friend try the cpu in another computer. If that does not work, then the problem is more than likely in the mother board. At this point if the motherboard is not good (should be checked by another person or friend) , also do not overlook the power supply.
Next... Remove all drive connections such as cdrom, hard drives and floppy. Turn on the computer and see if you can get the bios to come up...if it does, set the bios to default settings. Next put each drive in one by one and then turn on the computer after each one is connected. If you are still able to start the computer, then put in the cards one by one and try the computer again after each one is put in the slot it came from. This is the process of elimination to see which part is at fault.
as you say,the motherboard or the cpu may be the problem, as you need to connect the 4 pin connector as this is the independent 12v power supply for the cpu and not the ZIF socket like older cpu's.
You may be getting power to the board when the cpu is not connected, but when it comes to the cpu taking over because the bios has not been checked, nothing else will run, including drives.
If you do not get as far as the bios showing on the screen there is a good chance that the cmos chip is damaged on the board normally either from new or because of the board being stressed from flexing when fitting components to the board which is easily done unless the motherboard is supported by something underneath when attaching parts.
If the board is already fitted into the chassis of the pc, remove it and double check that it is not shorting on the chassis of your tower.
