On the MSI 7145 v2 motherboard, some cables came loose

ON jA1 I was able to get the hdd yellow led and the blue power led operational, but I can't seem to get the power switch operational where it will turn on or turn off the computer. { with the computer on I have to literally unplug from the back}. I know the right area because pin 9 is vacant and pin 10 is reserved for future use.

Hi, sounds like the case switch is stuck, leave the cable from the switch off and try to bridge the pins out, the after the computer is running try shut down by bridging the pins again, if this works clean or replace the switch. Regards mistyman

I need to know where to plug in my power cables on the mother board i have 5 cables that need plugged in One is RESET SW, POWER SW, HDD LED, + P LED, and - P LED can you possibly give me a picture pointing...

Can you go to the MSI website and download the manual, looking at your motherboard usually it can be found at the bottom of the motherboard, usually the right side, also you should see small abbreviations of the connection relative to the pins they are associated to. If you need more help just ask. Thanks Rick.

I need assistance with the front panel cables (Power, HDD, Reset etc)

On your motherboard power is setup like so:

10 9 8 7 6 (no pin on 6)
1 2 3 4 5

6- No pin

you have 5 connectors from the chassis' front (with cable colors):
-P LED (white)
+P LED (green)
HDD LED (yellow/white)
RESET (white/blue)
POWER (orange/white)

You just insert cables according to these nos. Do this job carefully that's why i am giving you full details about cable and its colors.
