I connect my hard drive with another computer when other computer is running when i connect with them one ic is burn on ciricut board and get burn smell from hard drive. Plz help me in this regards.

if you plugged or unplugged a HD to a computer when the computer is running, you have quite probably fried the HD *unless it's an EXTERNAL HD with a USB connection, which could be more resistant to this type of abuse).
I suggest you download SeaTools from Seagate and check the HD, but I think it;s pretty sure to say that it's gone

Where does the pwr sw plug go to on the motherboard

There is no way to tell you exactly where it goes without knowing the make and model of the motherboard. However all motherboard label the connection point on the board itself. What you are looking for is usually located in the lower right hand corner of the board and in most cases it will be labeled "F_PANEL" for front panel. There will be one or two rows of metal prongs if there are other items located on the front such as LED's or a reset switch simply follow the wires because all the front panel displays and switches are located in the same place.. These prongs will be grouped in 2s 3s and 4s.
The tricky part is reading the small print located near the prongs. They will be abbreviated such as +PW-(power switch), +RES- (reset switch), +PWR LED- (power led indicator), +HD- (hard drive activity indicator).
The + and - don't really apply to the power switch so you don't have to worry about that.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need any other info or are just unclear about anything.

500GB FW400 Porsche drive Appears to power on (LED lights) makes soft noise but no HD spin. Opened drive and seems that everything is seated properly.

their can be a issue with the drives controller board. when a controller board fails their will be no s.m.a.r.t information reported back to the system. S.M.A.R.T is used to check the temperature disks spindle speed as well as specific parameters set bu the disk manufacturer. if smart fails then the controller is probably bad. google check hard disk s.m.a.r.t for info on checking the drives states. and good luck.

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

How to connect front pannel

How about a picture? Pg. 46 in your manual.
Need manual, download from Intel. (Click on link).

Intel RC440BX Specification
Pg. 46
Basic rules case wiring. The color black is considered ground -. Power wires + can be any other color including stripped wires. (This is standard but case Mfg change to their own specification).

Pin 1 is + power for LED Hard drive green LED, Pin 2 is -/ground for Hard drive LED.
(Pin 3 is + power for LED Hard drive yellow LED, Pin 4 is -/ground for Hard drive LED).(See more options on pg. 47).
Pin 5 is + power for case On/off button, Pin 6 is -/ground On/off button.
Pin 7 is + power for Reset Switch, Pin 8 is -/ground for Reset Switch.
Once positive & negative pins has been located each connector follows in suit.

The Intel RC440BX front case connector is in an odd location.
The user will find it hard to connect front case LED connectors while the board in installed into the case.

Good Luck!
