The various wires from the case front panel should be labeled to indicate power LED, HD LED, etc. The motherboard front panel jumper pins should be grouped together and the pins should be labeled to indicate PWR, HD. RST etc. You can go to the motherboard manufacture's WEB site to download a diagram of your model motherboard and it will show all the locations of the connecting pins.
try to use another SATA drive in this machine...if this new HD is detected by this machine...
try connect the old HD on another machine....if it cannot be read there...also.... then i am sorry the HD is OUT/dead....
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 Paul, see page 8 number 15 for location. Than see page 19, System Panel Header in your manual. The basic wire color's for positive are red, blue, green & can also be light blue, light green, light red. Negative wires are usually white or black. Case wire colors do vary from case to case. To see pin one shown on page 19, (positive + for hard drive led = HDLED+). Bottom row farthest pin to the left of set. Pin two is above pin one. Pin two is, PLED+ (known as power led). Pin 3 is to the right of pin one & is HDLED- (Hard drive led, negative). Pin 4 is above pin 3 & is also PLED-, (Negative for power led). ECT!
If your new case has an internal speaker (Used for P.O.S.T, power on self test). This would connect to, Chassis Speaker Header located on page 8, number 16. Again, normally only two wires are used across the 4-pin connector. (One at each end of the connector).
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.
With the power on cross the pins with a slide on connector. When it fires on you know which one is the sw. When you cross the reset it will restart. When you try the HD the light will come on during HD activity. And the power light will work when you have the power light plugged. It isn't to hard. Just be careful.
