    It seems like HP use a Special conectors for this MB.

    there is only one low of pins for "speaker", "IDELed" "PWLed".

    There is NO PINS for marked for "RESET" ,"PWSW","SMISW"."MSGLed"

    I Tested power by Shorting the 2 "spots(not Pins)"and the Power was ON.

    Is anyone know Where Can Get the "Proper Case with connectors" or any other solution to use this HP P5750-60001 MB.?

Check the writing on the mother board to see if it says in the tiny print. oh scknascar i think it is an asus because P4 is one of their branches even though she has it listed as HP

Instructons to reset my motherboard

First replace your computers cap, then look careful your motherboard, unplug one-by-one jacks (cables) CD rom, HDD, Floppy Driver, Power supply jacks, remove processor, ram memory, cards (video, sounds, etc) unplug cables of buttons, Front panel card etc. but you should take care don't scratch cables and don't break connections cause you will use again them, and you should remember place of connectors because that can destroy your motherboard if you change the place of them. I suggest you to use camera to capture the cables so you can remember easier . After you unplug connectors you should remove screws replace new motherboard and make previous steps upside-down.

Cables on motherboard

These are the cables from the front panel of your computer.
power/reset buttons, led light from power on button/hdd activity etc.

The manual for your motherboard will tell you where they go.
They fit on the two rows of pins, usually at the bottom left corner of the motherboard,
I agree with you, they are very fiddly and the manual is not usually very clear how to attach them

I need assistance with the front panel cables (Power, HDD, Reset etc)

On your motherboard power is setup like so:

10 9 8 7 6 (no pin on 6)
1 2 3 4 5

6- No pin

you have 5 connectors from the chassis' front (with cable colors):
-P LED (white)
+P LED (green)
HDD LED (yellow/white)
RESET (white/blue)
POWER (orange/white)

You just insert cables according to these nos. Do this job carefully that's why i am giving you full details about cable and its colors.

Hmmm.... mainly you have:
-20 or 24-pins connector, that is unique and goes directly to motherboard (powers motherboard and its components)
-4 or 8-pins connector that powers CPU
-the rest would be connectors for ROM (CD/DVD/BlueRay) and HDD devices (there are: molex and sata power conectors)

If you totaly unshure, there is manual:

Only one drive showing out of two

Hi the cable ribbon is color coded. the blue should be connected to motherboard and the gray is a slave and the black is master. Check if you have this connected properly. If you got a Cable ribbon not color coded. The cable ribbon from motherboard connector about a 12 inches long from middle slave connector and 6 inches to the master connector. If this is not connected properly and HDD is not assign slave and master most likely the OS can not detect the HDD. The other way to check is to access your bios setup if the slave and master HDD is detect. Your PC have a capability of plug and play if you connect the hardware right and load the driver. Hope this info will help you to solve the problem.

I cant get the HDD LED to work... yes it is hooked up right...

Some of the wires going from the power switch, reset switch, speaker, and LEDs must be attached to the motherboard the correct way. That is, they must not only be placed in the right spot where they need to go, but they also must be connected with positive and negative wires on the right pins.

If your HDD LED is not lighting up when the HDD is "thinking", try reversing the cable where the HDD LED wire plugs in (just flip it so the black wire is where the non-black wire was). I tried to find a good picture of your motherboard to guide you but they were not very helpful. From squinting really hard, I believe the spot they should plug into the board is by the CMOS battery. There might be printed words on the board surrounding the area to connect them that tells you which two pins are for the HDD LED.
