You will see underneath the panel pins, where they are supposed to go, there will be +HD Led-, in this case it is positive to the left and negative to the right, work out which wire is your positive, usually red.
When you power up check that the Power Light is on and HDD light is flashing, if they arent take the connector out and turn it around.
If this doesnt work please post you Mobo Serial number here

Motherboard User Manual For SiS965L?

SiS965L is a chipset designation, not a motherboard model number. That said, most motherboards do label the header pins for the front panel connections on the motherboard, though they are a bit small and sometimes are not adjacent to the pins themselves. The Power Switch and Reset Switch pins are not polarized, and when you determine which they are, the connector plug can be installed on them either way. The Power LED and HDD LEDs ARE polarized. The positive pin is marked with a "+" sign and the Green wore of the Power LED and the Red wire of the HDD LED must be on the "+" terminal.

How to connect the front panel sould device?

Do you mean speaker or front panel audio? The front panel audio connector is located at the rear of the board, behind the PCI connectors - the speaker connections are in the panel connector block (2x10 pin header) located at the front left of the board.

With the board in it's normal position, the speaker pins are on the right hand side of that block, on the pin nearest the front and the one 3 positions behind that

Hi there
The front panel connectors are mainly,
  • harddisk activity connector
  • power switch connector
  • reset switch connector
  • power LED connector
  • speakers connector
  • USB connector
Harddisk activity connector
This normally comes red in colour and is labeled as HDD-LED
Power switch connector
This comes green in colour and is labeled as POWER-SW
Reset switch connector
This usually comes grey in colour and is labeled as RST-SW
Power LED connector
This is usually green in colour and is labled as PWR-LED
Speakers connector
This speaker will give different beep sounds during boot to tell the user if there is any errors. It occupies 4 pins, however only 2 is important for the function. Be sure to connect the red coloured cable to the positive polarity and the black to the negative.
