Turn your computer off.

Disconnect the AC power-cable.

Remove the side-panel.

Look for two wide-and-flat "ribbon" cables connected to the motherboard. One cable will connect to the "back" of your CD/DVD drive. The other cable will connect to the "back' of your disk-drive.

If you don't see any such "ribbon" cables, look for two wide-as-your-pinky-finger's-nail cables connected to the motherboard. One cable will connect to the "back" of your CD/DVD drive. The other cable will connect to the "back' of your disk-drive.

There also may be a "ribbon" cable between the motherboard and the "back" of the 3.5" diskette drive; such a cable will have a "twist" in some of the leads in the ribbon-cable. Obviously, your diskette-drive is _NOT_ your hard-drive.

I don't remember where all the connections (Power led, sw led, etc.) attach to the motherboard of my HP media center pc 873n. Is there a diagram of the motherboard that shows exactly where everything...


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.

You might need to open the case and make sure that the wires going from the power button are actually connected to the motherboard.
