Your best bet is to download the manual, and here's the site:
There are many articles that have information on hooking up a motherboard, just google them until you find a similar board, or one that you can recognize the different functions on. Board are like cars, they all have similar components and wiring, just in different places. I would start with the manual, however, since it often has this information embedded in it.
If you still can't figure it out, I would take it into a computer shop- they're usually glad to help, if they aren't busy, and they usually can find the answers.
Hope this helps...

There will be writing on the motherboard in several places, look very carefully and then google

Everything should just plug in without a problem, each device (ide cable/sata cable/CPU/graphics card) uses different shaped plugs and sockets, they can only usually plug in there own sockets.
Unless you are going to a newer technology ( IDE to SATA or AGP to PCI-E graphics)
If it is the same CPU socket type your only small problem may be connecting the front panel wires (led/hdd/reset/usb/audio)

These general instructions are intended to supplement or simplify some of the information in your motherboard manual Step 1 Make sure to read the manual that came with the motherboard - instructions differ for each one.
  • Step 2 Ground yourself with any professional grounding equipment you have. Otherwise, ground yourself by touching the computer power supply.
  • Step 3 Place motherboard on its anti-static bag.
  • Step 4 Configure motherboard: Set jumpers or DIP switches for CPU, voltage(s), and bus speed, if necessary. If your motherboard is configured by software, you will need to configure it after you complete the physical installation.
  • Step 5 Position motherboard in case. Line up holes in board with holes in case.
  • Step 6 Insert spacers, plastic stand-offs, washers and screws, as necessary. Tighten screws carefully, but securely.
  • Step 7 Make sure motherboard is not touching metal anywhere.
  • Step 8 Make sure slots and connectors fit into openings on back of case.
  • Step 9 Connect motherboard to power supply.
  • Step 10 Connect CPU fan, if you have one, to power supply.
  • Step 11 Connect reset and power switches to power supply.
  • Step 12 Connect LED indicators to power supply.
  • Step 13 Connect case speaker to motherboard.
  • Step 14 Check all connections.
  • Step 15 Test motherboard (and configure in CMOS if necessary) before installing other components of computer system.
    • If possible, do installation in an uncarpeted area.
    • Be careful not to touch any chips. Handle board by its edges. Static damage (and even oil damage) may cause a failure months after the incident.
    • If you do not understand these instructions or you lack good manual dexterity, have a qualified technician install the motherboard for you

    I just bought my 875WP1-E and hooked the monitor up to the onboard video port and when I power up the computer the monitor just says "no signal." What's up?

    This is due to your system is not switched ON or not properly configured. Follow the below steps will resolve your problem.

    1st Step: Have you hear any beep sounds? If yes insert the memory modules properly.
    2nd Step: check whether the keyboard lights are flashing while switch on the system. if no, check the SMPS or SMPS connections.

    Plugging in a USB port.

    You have an A side and B side, or 1 and 2. Starting from pin 1, usually has an arrow pointing to it, the wires should read as follows: 1= A/1 +5vac 2= B/2 +5vac
    3= A/1 -D 4= B/2 -D
    5= A/1 +D 6= B/2 +D
    7= A/1 ground 8= B/2 ground
    9= no pin 10= no connection
