The labels you are looking for on the boards are usually at the bottom right of the board and will have labels such as HDD LED, PWR, PWR LED, Reset, etc. The cable should be labelled in the same manner as the board (and thus easy enough to match up).

Here's the download page for the motherboard manual,

Column in middle, 3rd file from bottom.

This is a Zip file. A Zip file is a Compressed file. Used to send large amount of information more easily.
Has to be decompressed, or 'unzipped'.

After you click on the blue -> FIC K8M-800M file name, a small window will come up-

Make SURE there is a Green dot in the small circle, to the left of Save File.

Motherboard installed in computer case, the Front Panel header is at the Bottom/Right.
The Front Panel header is Orange in color. (Page 20)

Two rows of contact pins.

(The Orange - Front Panel header, sits Horizontally)

This is used for a 3-wire Power On LED light.

Pins 1, 2, and 3. (3 at the Top)

A) Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire. [Signal]
B) Pins 2 and 3 are for the Ground wires.

Jumper block for the 2-wire Power On LED light, and 3-wire Power On LED light; Page 13 - Set System Jumpers
(Actually it starts on Page 12)

6-pin header to right, of 3-wire Power On LED header.

I need the wiring diagram for emachine model D6405

Usually it is in very small print right on the motherboard next to the pins, use a flashlight and/or a magnifier to see what order the pins go in. The hard drive light will say HDD, power will say PWR, etc.

How can i connect properly the power supply to the msi k8m neo-v... can u give me a picture of it? when the power supply wire's are connected to the mother board

It's honestly pretty hard to mess up. They're keyed. Just make sure it clicks. You'll likely have an extra power cable that doesn't plug into anything. It's normal.

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)

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)

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

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)
