To solve your puzzle, you need to find the manual for your motherboard. If you don't have it still, almost all of them are available online at the manufacturer's support website. The manual always has the pin out diagram for the motherboard, and from there its just a matter of plugging the small connections together. Remember that connections for LED lights have polarity, meaning that they need hooked up one particular direction for the light to work, but any switch connection doesnt matter.
I have this exact same mobotherboard. Did you install the chipset drivers? You need to download and install the nforce3 chipset driver. It includes the nic driver and all other things you're probably missing besides video and sound.
I should tell you that my onboard NIC had problems on this motherboard. Sometimes it would lose connection, sometimes it would make my pc take 5 minutes to boot up when the cable was plugged in or just crash my computer.
I just use a PCI nic now. But you'll want to install that driver anyway. If you use a PCI nic, then go to Control Panel, Network Connections and right click the nforce nic and click Disable.
If you look at this picture, the pins on the motherboard should be on the far left below the brown slot and above the white connector. The pins on the board are marked with tiny white letters HDD, PWR, RST, SPKR. The USB connection on the board may require a separate header, I can't find a manual to see for sure.
try checking if its conencted properly. have you tried using a different RAM on it? if the different RAM chip worked then your DIMM is broken, if not still, it must be your motherboard that has the problem.
