Flashing green light on the circuit board. No power at all

I suggest it is the mother board or the power supply. Go to the Dell website on a friend's PC and download PDF manuals pertaining to your model. The battery may have enough power to light an LED.

I need a manual for power sw, hdd sw ,led sw HP dc7600 Mother Board pn 380356-001 380356

I suggest you go to the INTEL Support website. You should go to this page.
On that page figure out what Motherboard you have. Use that number to locate the page for that board. Then click on that board.
First you should look for the word 'Documentation" Clicking on that should get you to the Manual for your board. Once you get
that page up look for any reference to the manual for that board.
Download the manual for that board. Most of those manuals are
in .PDF files so you will need to have a pdf reader installed on a
machine you can use. Open the manual in the pdf reader and look for instuctions explaining how and where the cables are laid out on the Board. This set of connections is usually called a "Front Panel".

NOTE: These plugs are often shown with + and - signs. You may have to try turning the plugs 180 degrees once of twice
in order to get them working right. The plugs are usually labeled
as follows. PS = Power Switch, HD LED= Hard drive LED lamp.
RESET = Momentary Contact Reset Switch. (Do not use unless
necessary). and Pwr LED = Lamp that lights up telling you the machine is powerd up and ready to go. I strongly suggest that
you do not "guess" at which pins are which. Look them up. That
manual will explain everything you will need to know. Look at the pictures. that will help you understand the layout. Best Wishes.

I have installed a new motherboard in an acer case. The power cable from the switch on the front of the case will not connect to the board. Can anyone help? Thank you

You should read the motherboard manual, for cabling:
1. Power SW
2. Reset SW
3. HDD led
4. Power led - and power led +
5. Speaker

Cabling scheme, also written on the motherboard.

If the Power SW not installed the switch on does not work.
If the Reset SW not installed the switch reset does not work
If the HDD led
not installed the hard drive light (red) is not lit
If the Power led (+/-) not installed the power light (yellow) is not lit
If the Speakers are not installed, when the computer is on the beep sound is not heard.

I hope this information helps.

Installed an Upgrated Mother Brd,in my Hp Desktop Tower,but the power Switch receptacle in the New Mother Brd has 16 pns

You need to track the wires from the case front panel to thier locations: one will be your power switch, one your reset, one hard drive activity light, and one your power light. You want to note and label which light or switch they go to then go to the new motherboards manual and plan which wires need to go where.
the front panel switches : reset and power switch- these are momentary switches so it doesnt matter which way they go.
hard drive activity and power light- these should have a colored wire and a black or white. the colored wire will be your + side.

Wiring a P4M80-M4 mother board

You can download the manual for the motherboard here, just click on the "manual" link:

This will list the front panel connections, which are 2 pins. Each of the jumpers, what you are calling clips, will connect two of the pins. Most cases have the jumpers labeled, i.e. power, reset, etc. But if they are not, it is usually: red/white = HDD led; green/white = power led; red/black = speaker; black/green = power switch; and black/white = reset. But your case may use a different wiring spec, but should list somewhere which wire is for which function.

New Problem

The manual you need will be on the board manufacturers web page, howevr I will bet you have the case power switch and perhaps the reset switch on the wrong pins on the mother board. To check this, remove the switch leads from the mother board, then use a small screw driver and bridge the pins on the mother board a pair at a time. All of these leads plug on to the board in a line and not across the two lines of pins. when you get the mother board to fire up by this method geet a torch and look closely alongside the pins you will see the letters PWR SW or RS SW. It does not matter what polarity these two sets of leads are plugged onto both will work. The LED lights on the case front will only work if the polarity is correct but it will not do any harm if they are backwords. On the board you should se two sets of pins marked HDD and PWR these are the led light pins you will know you have them right when the usual red and green lights are working at the front of your tower.
