How to conect front panel

For this you need the motherboard manual.
If you do nor have it, download it.
The setup procedure will be at the beginning, after the specifications. The two cables from the front panel that are important are the (power on , LED reset) cable, and the USB cable.
Both these cables are built to the Intel developed, case standard, on most PCs.
The problems start when you are building a PC with an old case. The wires from the front panel will be all separate.
The motherboard manual will have the location of the pins, and the "pin out" for the motherboard.
The color lead is positive, and the white is negative.
The speaker wires are red and black, and the polarity does not matter.
Do them one at a time. Start with power on, when you have found the proper pins and hooked up the leads, then reset, then power LED, then HDD LED, and last the speaker.
Then find the USB pins and connect the USB cable to the motherboard.
The PC should boot, assuming the other components are installed.

How to connect motherboard cables

Hello my advice is to visit your mainboard or pc`s homepage for downloading the manual.

Basicly it`s just to connect, the 20 or 24 pin power cable (this can not be connected wrong) and the +12, 4 pin cable (this can not be connected wrong) connect the power to dvd and hard drive, and the ide cable or sata to the mainboard.
Connect the front panel so the mainboard can start when you press the power button:


Or this:


Here is some videos from youtube, that shows you how to build a pc:

But please visit your pc homepage, you will need the drivers when you have installed windowws.

Best of luck

Do faulty chipsets on motherboards happen over time or are they a fault which will have been there from the start?

Most electronic chips that fail, will fail either when they are first used, or within 90 days. Failues after this are ususally caused by overheating which is usually caused by a bad fan or by too much dust inside the pc. I vacuum out the inside of my pc twice a year (when I change my clocks).
