I am helping a student of mine by transferring the motherboard and other components to a new case. I am looking for the manual for this motherboard so that I can connect each jumper to the correct pin.
I hope you can help

You need to look in the handbook that cam with your motherboard for a section labeled 'Connectors' or possibly 'Connections'. There will be one USB 2.0 type prong on the motherboard that is designated for case connections [Power LED, mini-speaker, etc.]. The manual for the motherboard will indicate what order and where on the motherboard your connectors should go.
Good luck with your build. :]
As long as you are doing a complete swap from the current system to the new (empty case) you will not loose anything, just be very careful when transferring the motherboard and expansion cards. Use a static guard wrist band if you can get one to avoid shorting your components.
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.
the problem wasnt with the case,rather with the motherboard.common cause is power leakage in the Earthing Point of the power source.get the board checked.also make sure all the components like memory graphics etc r seated properly.
did u make sure the new case has the same power rating on the power supply?
The easiest thing to do it is look at your motherboard and make a note of the manufacturer and model/version number, as Dell don't make their own boards.
Go to the manufacturers web site and search for the manual probably in PDF format and download it and look for the relevent power button connections.
