The Power On switch is located inside the plastic Power On button assembly.

It is a Momentary Contact Switch, and is named an ATX power on switch.
This ATX Power On switch I have found fits many computers,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

The plastic front panel of a desktop computer is the Front Panel.
The pin area on the motherboard, that the cables (Wires) from the Front Panel connect to, is the Front Panel header.

Tell me the manufacturer name, and Model Number of the computer, or tell me the manufacturer name, and Model Number of the motherboard, and let me see if I can find a Pinout for it's Front Panel header.
(What pins the cables connect to)
Post in a Comment.

New case and new motherboard, when trying to turn on computer, power button doesnt work


Carefully double check the connection header pins and the leads that come from the front panel for LEDS indicators and push button switches. The motherboard manual will indicate what the numbering scheme is for the header pins (which pin is #1, etc.) and where they are physically located on the board itself. You may have simply connected one or more switches and indicators to the wrong pin. Getting them straight should solve the problem.

Instructions on atx case wiring to motherboard


Assuming that the computer is laying down on it's right side, and you are viewing the F panel (the front panel header) from the right side of the motherboard (the bottom of the computer), pin 1 is on the bottom left of the F panel, pin 2 is on the top left, pin 9 is on the lower right, and pin 10 is on the top right (no actual pin)...

1 HD_LED_P Hard disk LED (+) 2 FP PWR/SLP *MSG LED (+)
3 HD_LED_N Hard disk LED (-)
5 RST_SW_N Reset Switch (-)
7 RST_SW_P Reset Switch (+)
9 RSVD Reserved
4 FP PWR/SLP *MSG LED (-)
6 PWR_SW_P Power Switch (+)
8 PWR_SW_N Power Switch (-)
10 Key No pin

Usually the wires and the pins are color coded, (the colored ones being positive.) Sometimes the connections are written in very small abbreviations on the motherboard.

Basic rules case wiring. The color black is considered ground -. Power wires + can be any other color including stripped wires. (This is standard but case Mfg change to their own specification).

Pin 1 is + power for LED Hard drive green LED, Pin 2 is -/ground for Hard drive LED.
(Pin 3 is + power for LED Hard drive yellow LED, Pin 4 is -/ground for Hard drive LED).(See more options on pg. 47).
Pin 5 is + power for case On/off button, Pin 6 is -/ground On/off button.
Pin 7 is + power for Reset Switch, Pin 8 is -/ground for Reset Switch.
Once positive & negative pins has been located each connector follows in suit.

The Intel RC440BX front case connector is in an odd location.
The user will find it hard to connect front case LED connectors while the board in installed into the case.

Good Luck!

Led pins


I think you will have the an instruction manual of Packard Bell imedia 5106.In the manual an outline of the motherboard will be given.Figure out power and reset pins in the diagram given.

Usually the pins are at the corners only.
There will be labels near the pins like pwr rst etc.
Try connecting in the same configuration.

Motherboard pin config


All motherboards have a print beside the pins, Speaker= "speak", "pwr s" =powerswitch, "HDDled" red light on front, rst = reset switch [not allways used] "pwr led" Green led, the case wires are usualy marked on the plug ends with the same , "hdd" "reset" and so on. The power switch will work both way's around however the led lights wont. You will not hurt anything if they are the wrong way around, they just wont work so if you dont get lights just reverse the polarity. If by chance the case wires do not have labels the just trace them to the case front panel and plug them into the corresponding board pins. Regards mistyman
