You first need to know the make and model number of the motherboard. Most mobo's have the make and model printed on the board itself, other times there will be a sticker.

locate these and let me know what make and model and i can do my best to provide you with the manual.

Thanks,
Brad Nelson

Mother board power switch


I don't know what you are asking for exactly, so I'll through out possibilities.

A) The Power On switch located inside the plastic Power On button assembly is a Momentary Contact Switch.
It is an ATX power on switch.

This is a generic example of a Power On switch that fits Many models,

http://www.amazon.com/Power-Motherboard-Cable-Switch-Button/dp/B00345WH4A/ref=pd_cp_e_2

B) The plastic front of the computer is a Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the cables (Wires) from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

Intel Support > Intel D865GLC motherboard > Product Guide,

To find out if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply, perform the simple test using a jumper wire.
If you do not know how to perform this test, and wish to, post in a Comment.

Case switch connected to motherboard is messed up. i need a new switch for the case or the configuration for the pins on the motherboard to be able to use a new case/new switch


The Power On switch is located inside the plastic Power On button assembly.

It is a Momentary Contact Switch, and is named an ATX power on switch.
This ATX Power On switch I have found fits many computers,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

The plastic front panel of a desktop computer is the Front Panel.
The pin area on the motherboard, that the cables (Wires) from the Front Panel connect to, is the Front Panel header.

Tell me the manufacturer name, and Model Number of the computer, or tell me the manufacturer name, and Model Number of the motherboard, and let me see if I can find a Pinout for it's Front Panel header.
(What pins the cables connect to)

I cant figure out how to plug in the power switch


If you look closely at the strip, it is marked.
Also, you can go to ASUS for a printout of your motherboard.

Is It required to connect Tower Front Panel I/O to Motherboard


The power button on the front panel would definitely need to be hooked up to the motherboard so you can power up the computer.

If you have any usb slots or a media card reader on the front panel, or both, then you would need to hook those up as well, otherwise the main one you need to connect would be the power button.

I need to figure out how to wire the front panel power switch, reset switch etc. to my intel motherboard


look on google for a schematic, or a manual for your mobo model. If you don't have any luck then try just a general search for other motherboard schematics/manuals and you can try their setups.
