You will need to open the computer case and check that the cables that run from the actual power button to the motherboard are plugged into the proper spot on the motherboard. Sometimes reseating the cable can fix this issue.
Hi Dan, The wires are from the front panel. HDD LED which causes an led (usually red) light to turn on when the Hard Drive is active. The PWR LED turns on an LED light (usually green) when you turn on your computer. The PWR S/W turns on your computer when you press the on button of your computer. The front panel connector riser is usually located on the bottom right of your computer. They fit on little pins. Unfortunately there is no standard, so connections vary. Sometimes the pins are labeled on the motherboard. . Check your manual. For more info do a google search for "Motherboard front panel connectors". Hank
The front panel connector is close to the SATA connectors. If you look real close (as in flashlight and magnifying glass) at the printing on the motherboard, you will see "pwr_led", "pwrsw", "hdd led", and "reset" printed on the board. Just match what it says on the wires to what it says on the board. Polarity only matters with the LED's. If they don't work, just swap the leads.
Here is the manual for that mobo: http://www.foxconnchannel.com/support/downloads_detail.aspx?ID=en-us0001142
You don't say what case you are using. If it is proprietary and the front panel header is all in one connector, you can carefully back the connector pins out of the block using precision screwdrivers. I keep a bunch of two pin connectors from junked machines so I can create individual connector sets when changing motherboards (eg, PWR SW, PWR LED, HDD LED and RESET). This also requires that you know the pinouts of both the old board and the new one so you can get everything connected properly.
Very doubtful you will ever find an adapter to change from one front panel block to another.
The 9-pin connector probably uses a spacer pin between the legs of the PWR LED, while it seems the 6-pin does not have RESET.
