Well find out the mother board make and model it should be imprinted on it some where flat probably in the center then look that up on the internet and find the manual. There it will describe the location on the board and which pins specifically. It will probably be on the bottom half of the board or the opposite side of the heat sink and RAM. The pins are pretty small and grouped in rectangles but once you have the manual for the board it shouldn't be that hard. If you still have the broken wire attatched to the pins though you could just take off the old wire and put on the new one.

good luck.

Look for letters on the motherboard that match the markings on the wires. Like PW or PS for the power light, etc.....

Power button not working. computer won't turn on. I got a light on, on the mother board but computer won't turn on


This is usually caused by either a faulty power supply or a dirty switch. You can find out if it's the switch by pulling the wires off the motherboard where the power switch plugs in, and with the power supply plugged in, carefully short across the two pins. If the computer doesn't start, that rules out the power switch. The other likely culprit is the power supply. If you can get ahold of a different power supply, try hooking it up and power up the computer. If that daesn't work, chances are that your motherboard is shot. Good luck.

I press the power button at the front of the tower and it doesn't activate the PC power.


The most common reasons for this are: 1. Switch failure (the button is broken) 2. Power Supply not working
If you can go inside the case of your PC (if confident that you won't mess up with any other thing).
First of all remove all power cords (even the monitor's wire) open up your case again if confident but its better if you get it checked by a technician. By the way to check the switch the method is given below (i expect that you have a reset button)
There must be a wire on which PWR would be written it will be directly connected to the mother board. To get to it look for the button inside the case and follow the wire, when you find the wire carefully take it out and carefully search for the wire of the reset button and connect the reset wire in the place where the power wire was connected.
Plug in all the wires back again cautiously and then press the reset button and check whether now it turns on or not.
If the above method works it means you have a faulty power button and if not then you have either a power supply problem or In some extreme cases the mother board can be burnt.

Hello, first of all I need know where the serial number for an iwill motherboard is usually located. and my main problem is when i plug the pc in i get a power light but nothing happens when i press the...


Serial nos of mother board is located in near the ram slot.
Check the ON button if your pc not ON.
check where the jack pin of power button is inserted in motherboard pull it out and short that both pin using wire(touch ones), if again computer not ON then check your SMPS power supply, if again PC not ON then it means your motherboard need repairs no matter the light is ON or NOT. 
if u get power light then wire formula will work. Good Luck

Lost book on mother board and i accidently pulled the case wires from the mother board. need to reattach in order for the mother board to have power and thus the computer to power up.. need to see...


Hi there.
Get a strong flashlight and a magnifying glass (if you have one). On the motherboard look for the front panel, it should be marked PWR and coloured green, also the plug that connects to it should be marked PWR_SW. On some boards there are no colours but the markings are the same, so a good close look.
Have a look at these pictures for an idea >>>>>>

Where to plug power button into mother board


Open the case of the server, and look on the side panel that you removed. It should have all of the server options detailed right on the inside of the case for you.

Dell Dimension 8300 wouldn't start


Sounds like a power supply. You are getting the standby voltage and not the switched. plug all your wires in except the big 20 or 24 pin motherboard connector, take a small wire and short the green (PSU_ON) to black (ground) wires. This will simulate the computers "ON" signal. The fans should all spin up and your plugged in accessories should work, which means bad motherboard, if not bad power supply.
