Problem with E-Machines T3302 PC Desktop

While intalling new hardware I pulled out the front panel (hdd led power Sw & Power led) i saw pin layout as ::::. Do I connect to these pins? If you have a diagram it would make it much easer. Could not find manual on the internet.

EMachines T3302 desktop computer?

According to my information it uses an FIC K8M-800M motherboard.
(First International Computer, Inc.)

(Looking in-between the brown AGP expansion slot, and the first white PCI slot, you should see K8M-800)

http://www.fic.com.tw/product/motherboard/AMD/ficimages/k8m-800m.jpg

IF, my information is correct about the motherboard used, I would like you to download the Motherboard Manual for it.

(I haven't worked on one of these puppies in my shop yet, so I don't know if the eMachines T3302 uses an FIC K8M-800M mobo. MOtherBOard)

http://www.elhvb.com/mboards/OEM/eMachines/manuals/index.html

Under the Filename heading in the Middle, scroll down, and Left-click on - FIC K8M-800M

This is a Zip file. (Compressed file for easier transfer)

Watch the download progress bar, and let the file download all the way. ( 1 minute, 45 seconds for me)

Where the file will go;

Windows XP:
It will go to your My Documents folder (Start > My Documents), or to a subfolder in My Documents. Downloads.
Or it may go directly to your desktop screen.

(Yellow folder icon, with a zipper in the middle. K8M-800_manual
underneath)

When you see the file, Double-click on it.
Go up to the left side of the screen.
Left click on - Extract All Files

Left-click on Next, and Finish.

In the small window left-click on the PDF icon with K8M-800_manual.

Barring you cannot download, or open this Zip file.

Orient the motherboard in your view, so we are both looking at it the same way.

Processor to the top.
Ram Memory slots to the right.

Bottom right corner has the CMOS battery, and the Front Panel header is to the left of the battery.
Under the Front Panel header it has F-PNL

Your pinout of the Front Panel header is upside down.

There are 5 pins across the top.
There are 4 pins across the bottom.

The Top pins are numbered Odd.
The Bottom pins are numbered Evenly.

The numbering starts from the Right side of the motherboard, (CMOS Battery side), going towards the Left.

Top row, going from Right to Left,
1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

Bottom row, going from Right to Left,
2, 4, 6, and 8. (There is No pin 10)

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HDD LED. (Harddrive activity light)

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch.

C) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On light. (Indicates power is on)

D) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Turns the computer on)
