SOURCE: Mother Board connection
Go to the site below. Its a manual for the 800/i65GV group. Go to page 67 and zoom in. You'll get a nice look where everything goes. Two rows of pins. Upper row and bottom row. Real close to each other. Do not place connectors up to down. Connect only left to right.
The reset connector has two pins. One will be white or black. These are - grounds. So connect it to the bottom row onto the most right two pins. Moving to your left. Skip one pin. Take the Power Switch a two pin connector. Remember Black & White is ground & ground goes to your right for both rows of Mb pins.
Go to IDE_LED next. Its the last two pins towards your most left of the bottom row of pins. Move to the upper row & the power LED. Same as the bottom row keping the grounds to your right. Lastly is the speaker. Its connector holds four pins but you only use two. One in each end.
Good luck & please vote....

Marked on the motherboard are abbreviations for those connections ie. PWR SW, additionally your included user manual should specifically detail the installation process... if this still seems to much for you, perhaps you should not risk damaging the system further and seek assistance from a (bricks and mortar) PC store and/or technician.
