Chances are, you can download the manual from the website of the manufacturer. That's probably the smart move. Last thing you want to do is try and do connections without it. That's a quick way to go through more than one.

You can download (and print) the Manual at this site:

Just click manual, then click USA under the English Manual.

NOTE: You must have Javascript installed on your Internet Browser, and Adobe Acrobat Reader to read PDF files.

Case cables connectors are usually located on the bottom right of the motherboard. (HD LED, PWR LED, PWR SWT, RES SWT, USB, and AC 97').

Hope that Helps.

My pc is making a alarm tone sporadiclly and will sometimes shutdown and reboot.I found that by wiggling the harness of wires inside ,the tone alarm will stop..but will start again . Any idea? MB ...

That tone is a warning code.Go to the manufacture websight and look for error tones or codes.

take side cover off and secure all wires and make sure everything is plugged in correctly.

NFORCE3-A CPU fan & LED come on, nothing else, no beep or video

If the RAM is incompatible with your board then yes it would not allow a boot. Make sure your front panel power wire is plugged into the proper spot on the motherboard and retry. If it's the RAM then you will still have the problem. If it was the wire loose or in wrong spot then it should work. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Hooking my Neo4 mobo back up.

Hi weeman105, case wire colors do vary from case to case. The most common case wire colors for negative are "white & black". All other colors like blue, green, red orange are most commonly "positive". The four pin connector with only the ends with wires is the internal speaker. Most boards use one set of pins where you hook everything up. The MSI K8N Neo4-F uses two separate motherboard pins, Front Panel Connectors: JFP1 & JFP2 as shown on the top page 2-19. Now that you know what color is positive & which is negative things should work out just fine.
Downloaded manual from MSI link:
If you run into any other troubles, just post & we'll go from there.

Good luck weeman105!
