CPU friend a while back, replaced with this mobo and new parts, and when the power button is hit, there is no power anywhere in the system. I wanted to know if anyone could link me a picture of where to connect the power switch button and etc from the case to the mobo because I tried google and could not find one. Thanks.

I assume that you have a video card, and ram plugged in otherwise no startup. If so and you are absolutely certain of good power supply then it could be dead CPU / mobo. Did you buy a new power supply and ensure that the CPU power plug is plugged on the mobo?
Did you try to unplug all AC Power; remove internal surface battery; and then jumper the 'reset' pins from 1-2 to 2-3 ?
Leave in this state for about 5 minutes- then replace battery; re-jumper back to pins 1-2- replace AC power cord.
Sometimes wiping out the BIOS setup information and restarting/re-setting it up will do the trick!
Don't mean to butt in here but I'll bet the 4 pin_ATX 12v connector is not connected to the board. That 4 pin_ATX 12v connector give's the CPU it's power. Without is the system will not boot. Some boards will give off that weird sound you are hearing.
it could be your power switch, veriy that it isnt the power supply by
1.) un-plug it from the main board
2.) look at the main board connector(one coming of the power supply)
3.) you should see green wire and next to it a black one
4.) using a paper clip bridge the too wires
5.) if it works proceed to net step if not get a new power supply
to check case switch and board switch
1.) plug in power supply to main board
2.) look at the pins where the power button connects to
3.) using a metal object (blade screw driver) bridge the pins
if the board should start up>
then its your power button on the case that is bad, you can try to repair it, chage it or buy a new case,
if it doesnt work.
1.) ensure that jcms(jumper to flash the bios) is set correctly
2.) unjack each drive one at a time to see if any is causing stalling
3.) get a new main board
Try getting a slower cpu, I have a 3.0Ghz P4 with 512mb of ram and it works great, I emailed them about upgrading ram and they said: "Upgrading the memory would not affect
the Video card, unless the memory is not compatible with the motherboard, then
the computer might not turn on at all."
