I have one sitting in front of me , unfortunately I cannot get it to you but will be happy to tell you the positions. It's not very difficult to fix and I will stick by until you get it correct. I hope I don't complicate this in an attempt to keep it clear and don't be insulted by my answer. I am guessing you don't have a great deal of experience working inside the box and it can become confusing. This is much easier than the length of this answer suggest. You will do this in about 30 seconds, move anything that is in you way and make a note of where it came from. If your hand is small you are lucky but don't force anything and if you are pushing on anything trying to get down there see what it is before pushing more. Better to move it.

There is a front panel connector that is on the bottom right of the board if you orientate the board by placing the computer access panel in front of you with the front of the computer facing to your right. Then right below the floppy disk controlled socket (the smallest flat cable in the box) if no floppy the empty socket below the battery.
There is a double row of pins, looks like 2 rows of 10 pins each. Mine are multicolored, pink and green etc. and the should be marked + and minus, at least plus. The number 1 pin is on the left. The 1 pin is actually the bottom left and the 2 pin is above it. Back down to the bottom row and pin 3 is right next to 1 and the 4 pin right above it. Pin 3 is the second pin on bottom left. Follow the way it goes? The bottom is 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19 and right above 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20.

Pin 2 is + so put your Power SW on pin 2 and 4 with the colored wire on pin 2. Colored wire in the pair should be positive, and it can be blue, red, green, mine is red and white.
The Power LED goes right next to the Power SW on pins 6 and 8, the colored wire on pin 6, mine is blue and white. And finally the HDD LED goes on pin 7 and 9. All counting from the left to right. My pins are not marked as I think its not critical how the LED is connected and if it does not light then reverse those 2 pins. My colored wire is on pin 7 and its blue. May as well finish, the Reset button is wired to pins 17 and 19 with 17 being positive and the speaker if you have one hooked up (your tiny internal speaker not for listening to music) is a 4 pin connector with the middle 2 sockets empty and fits over the last 4 pin s on the bottom right. 13, 15, 17, and 19. Pin 13 is +. There may be other wires but I don't know where they go depends on what they are but this is what you need. Good luck. And make sure all is unplugged and touch the box to ground yourself or wear a strap. Look but don't touch is a good rule for now.

HOW TO INSTALL MOTHER BOARD


These general instructions are intended to supplement or simplify some of the information in your motherboard manual Step 1 Make sure to read the manual that came with the motherboard - instructions differ for each one.
  • Step 2 Ground yourself with any professional grounding equipment you have. Otherwise, ground yourself by touching the computer power supply.
  • Step 3 Place motherboard on its anti-static bag.
  • Step 4 Configure motherboard: Set jumpers or DIP switches for CPU, voltage(s), and bus speed, if necessary. If your motherboard is configured by software, you will need to configure it after you complete the physical installation.
  • Step 5 Position motherboard in case. Line up holes in board with holes in case.
  • Step 6 Insert spacers, plastic stand-offs, washers and screws, as necessary. Tighten screws carefully, but securely.
  • Step 7 Make sure motherboard is not touching metal anywhere.
  • Step 8 Make sure slots and connectors fit into openings on back of case.
  • Step 9 Connect motherboard to power supply.
  • Step 10 Connect CPU fan, if you have one, to power supply.
  • Step 11 Connect reset and power switches to power supply.
  • Step 12 Connect LED indicators to power supply.
  • Step 13 Connect case speaker to motherboard.
  • Step 14 Check all connections.
  • Step 15 Test motherboard (and configure in CMOS if necessary) before installing other components of computer system.
  • TIPS AND WARNINGS
    • If possible, do installation in an uncarpeted area.
    • Be careful not to touch any chips. Handle board by its edges. Static damage (and even oil damage) may cause a failure months after the incident.
    • If you do not understand these instructions or you lack good manual dexterity, have a qualified technician install the motherboard for you

    > power led,

    Runs to the LED (Light Emitting Diode) labelled "power" on the front of your computer-case

    > H.D.D led,

    Runs to the front-panel LED that lights-up whenever the Hard Disk Drive is being used.

    > reset sw,

    Runs to the "reset" button on the front panel.

    > speaker

    Runs to the internal speaker

    > s/b sw

    Very briefly touch a metal-tip screwdriver between these 2 pins.
    If the computer powers-on, you've found the "power" connector.

    Well you really need to get a manual for that. Check the website and download the manual with that model, for sure there is one.

    I guess you have connected all the connectors there incorrectly so better look for a manual.

    Please connect jPw1 to 4 Pin 12v, this supplies power to CPU. Than enter Bios & find Boot settings. Set the cdrom as boot 1 & hd as boot 2. Check the jumper on the cdrom, as it is the only device on secondary IDE controller it should be set as a master.
    It is better to install a fresh copy of windows with a new motherboard. Put your windows CD in the cdrom & the system will boot to it. And your on your way. You can install the drivers for the board after windows has been installed.
    Enjoy!
