    This is not a simple motherboard and case. It is a media center board and case with no label on the connections and different placement on the motherboard of the connectors.

Look at the front panel of the computer you will see the connections you have. Should be power, reset, power led, usb etc. These are connected to your current motherboard and most times all the connections will be labeled in the case, on the wire connector ends. IE the end that connects to the motherboard. The only exception to this is the usb ports, and they can be hooked up to new usb connectors on the motherboard. Also note, read i said READ the proper way to connect the usb to the motherboard, this is usually a one shot deal, get it wrong and you kill that usb connector.

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires connect to, is the Front Panel header.
(Power On switch, Power On LED, HarDDrive activity LED, etc)

The Front Panel header is Black, rectangular in shape, and is situated in a vertical position; located in the Bottom Right corner of the motherboard. (Next to the mounting hole)

It is a standard 9-pin HP Front Panel header,

http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware/Getting-a-new-case-i-need-Front-Panel-pinout/td-p/842897

Scroll down to the 9-pin Front Panel header photo, and pinout.

The 4-pin side is the EVEN side. Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10.
The 5-pin side is the ODD side. Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light Emitting Diode, so it is redundant to call it a light)

Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
IF the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, (IN use), switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. Reserved for factory use, and it is +5 Volts.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

Scroll the HP Support Motherboard Specification page down. Click on the + sign next to Motherboard Layout.

Left to Right on bottom edge of motherboard, Internal Connectors;

AUDIO_1 is for the audio ports on the Front Panel.
ATX_IN is where the small audio cable from the optical drive plugs in.
(CD/DVD drive)
IF TWO optical drives are used; the Main, or Primary optical drive, is connected with the small audio cable. NOT the secondary optical drive.

HD_AUDIO also connects to audio ports in the Front Panel.
May be mistaken, but don't believe SPDIF_OUT header is used.
1394A1 header is for the Firewire ports in the Front Panel (1394a)
USB 2 and USB 4 headers are for the Front Panel USB ports.
USB 1 and USB 3 should be for a Card Reader.

Need where the power cables go, and what they look like? Just post back in a Comment.

(Be SURE to FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions)

As such Asus has no info on it.

Looking at the second link posted (Motherboard Specifications), scroll down to the bottom, and click right on - Motherboard Layout

Motherboard layout shown (Direction), is the same as is installed in your computer; Processor to the Top, white PCI slots to the Bottom, Ram Memory to the Right.

The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.

Abbreviated F_PANEL 1, at the bottom right corner of the motherboard, is the Front Panel header.

There are 9 contact pins. Two rows.
Across the Top row they are numbered ODD.
Across the Bottom row they are numbered EVEN.

Coming from the Left side of the motherboard towards the right side, on the Top row;
Pins 1, 3, 5, and 7

Coming from the Left side of the motherboard towards the right side, on the Bottom row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire. ( + )
If the HDD LED is dim when operating, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive wire.

D) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

Start button broke off. How do I start it now?


Remove the side-panel.
Look for the many wires that run from the front-panel to some connectors on one corner of the motherboard. Two of those wires connect to two pins labelled 'POWER' or 'PWR'.
Remove the two wires. Take a metal screw-driver, and touch both exposed pins, for an instant.
This simulates pushing the 'ON/OFF' button.

If this works, go to any electronics store, and find a new ON/OFF "momentary" switch,
buy it, and connect it to those 2 pins.

You need to unmute the line-in and adjust its level as necessary. Usually you can just double click on the speaker icon in the system tray and the Line In is by default muted and it is on the far right column (depending on your setup). If it is not displayed, click on Options and Properties and put a check mark by Line-in so that it will display.

I am not familiar with your exact motherboard, but most commonly, the front panel connectors themselves usually have white print labeling them, and on the motherboard, similar fine white markings will be next to the appropriate pins. This is not always the case, but the front panel pins on the motherboard are usually located near the bottom right hand corner.
