The front of your computer is the Front Panel

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires go to from the Front Panel; is the Front Panel header

Motherboard installed in computer case, the Front Panel header is on the Bottom/Right corner; and is White it color.

Two rows of contact pins.

(I like the Zoom In feature. Just set your mouse cursor in the middle of the photo to activate it, and then move your mouse cursor around)

Looking at the two rows of pins, you will see there are some missing in the middle.
Essentially can be said as having pins on the Left, and pins on the Right.

It is my belief that the pins on the Left side, are what you want.
Number the pins across the Top row
Let's start at the Left side.
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

Now number the pins on the Bottom row, Left side.
Look like there may be four pins, so number from the Left,
Pins 1, 3, 5, and 7.

It is my belief that;
Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light
Pin 2 being for the Positive ( + ) wire

Pins 6 and 8 for the Power On switch

Pins 1 and 3 for the HarDDrive activity LED light. (HDD LED)
Pin 1 for the Positive ( + ) wire

Pins 5 and 7 for a Reset switch

I think the pins on the Top row/Right side, may be for a speaker.
A lot of times though, these pins are not even used.
One pin may have been a 5 Volt test area for the factory.
Other pins may be for technology that isn't used today, or used readily.
Such as Infrared Remote, and so on.

(Huh! Always thought Infrared was spelled Infared.
Good Ol' spellcheck)

I would SUGGEST, using a 2-wire LED to check my theory.

For additional questions please post in a Comment, or Reply; at end of solution.

You should see the green light on the mother board whenever the power supply is plugged in, so either the wall socket is bad or the power supply.
Try plugging a lamp into the wall socket to make sure a circuit breaker did not trip.
If the wall socket is good, I would suggest the power supply is bad.
At least the power supply fan should go on.
However, if you want to be sure, they sell a voltage checker with lots of lights to show all the outputs of the power supply, for about $10.
Or you could take the power supply out and take it to a shop to be checked.
A new power supply should run about $30.

New installation of mother board

Hi check the cables from the case to the mother board. They should be marked and the book that came with the board will tell you where to connect them. The std markings are HDD [red led] PWR S [powerswitch] RSW [reset switch] PWR LED [case power light] To test if there is no fault in the board or power pack. first visualy check the board to see if you have a red led light on when the power is turned on, if not the problem is in the power pack or the wall outlet. second if the light is on, the bridge the pins marked pwr switch on the board with a screw driver and this should start the computer, if not you have a faulty board.
